Small Businesses to Support in 2017

Small Businesses to Support in 2017

December 30, 2016

As much as I love splurging on big brands *Hello Urban Decay and Charlotte Tilbury*, there is nothing I love more than supporting all of the amazing small businesses out there.  With that in mind, I have put together a list of my favourite small businesses to support in 2017.

That Lame Company

I think most of you will know who That Lame Company are (if you don’t, where have you been?) and that I love everything that they do. That Lame Company are a independately run stationery/craft business that sell some of the most beautiful stationery I have ever owned. I *think* after my recent purchase I own at least one of every single on of their products, all of which are such high quality. I have a post coming up soon on their latest #BoxOfLame, so I won’t go on too much, but yeah go check them out AND keep an eye out for the blog planner coming soon.

Skinsincere

I think it has been just over a year since I first met Gemma, the creator of Skinsincere. She attended one of my events and was an absolute hit with all the bloggers, some of which I know she has formed friendships with. I am so happy to see how much Skinsincere has grown over the last year and I am in awe of everything Gemma does while battling a chronic illness. Having tried a range of her products I can honestly say that Gemma will be one to watch in 2017!

The Juice Shed Co

The Juice Shed Co are another company I have met through events and I love how they have very quickly become one of my favourite drinks. They’re always so supportive of bloggers and I love seeing brands that appreciate all the hard work we do! That being said, I wanted to repay the favour and include them in my ‘small businesses to support in 2017’ post. Oh yeah – their drinks are AMAZING and you should go try them right now.

Literary Emporium

Literary Emporium are a recent discovery for me, but ever since I found them I have been lusting after pretty much everything on their site. They have enamel pins, keyrings, mugs, notebook, prints and everything you can imagine a book lover would want. I’ll be supporting them throughout 2017, and I definitely think you should too!

 

I can’t imagine how difficult it is for all small businesses – not just the ones I’ve included above – to do everything that they do. It’s such an inspiration and seeing all of their success is a huge motivation factor in everything that I do, I hope to one day be able to do the same.

As difficult as it can be to start your own business, Boost Capital have carried out a survey to show how small business owners have reacted to the recent Brexit vote and the impact it has had on them as a buiness, for example following the result 58% of respondents won’t be taking any precautions to pretend their business once we leave.
