Meet Sweet Little Birdy {Guest Blogger}

I am very excited to share with you a 'special guest interview' with the gorgeous Tara from Sweet Little Birdy. I was over the moon when Tara happily agreed to take part in an interview for our blog.

If you haven't already heard about all he gorgeousness at Sweet Little Birdy, you must be licing under a rock! You will be happy to hear they are launching a brand new website very very soon! I know I am not alone when I say I cannot wait to get my hands on the lovely products available at Sweet Little Birdy, including the beautiful collection of birdcages and milk bottles. I personally adore the styling of the products that provide such inspiration.

Thank you for sharing your story with us! Xx

What is the name of your store? What is the story behind its name?
Sweet Little Birdy. We had no idea of the name and jotted a few down that we thought were suitable. ‘A little birdy’ was on the list, as the saying ‘A little birdy told me’ had become a bit of a running joke in our house so we put ‘a little birdy’ on the list as a bit of fun and it kind of stuck and we decided to use it. When we went to register the business the name was taken. A few of the other names on the list started with ‘sweet’ so we combined sweet with little birdy and we loved it!

What was your inspiration for starting your business? When did you start your business?
Sweet Little Birdy is a combination of what I am passionate about. It combines my love of party styling, the colour pink, my decorating styles, my attention to detail, gorgeous home decor, my love of photography, social networking and the internet. It all started to come together when I started to compile a ‘scrapbook’ (of sorts) whenever I came across pictures and articles of things I loved – I didn’t really have any sort of goal in mind at the time but often wondered what I could do to combine all these fantastic things that I loved so much, and over time Sweet Little Birdy really just evolved and in June this year it all just seemed to click into place and I had a clear focus on where I wanted my dream to go.

What is your favourite product from your collection?
Can I say everything? I love every single thing that we sell, but if I had to pick I think at the moment it would be our oversized dotty cups – they just have so many uses and just look gorgeous. (I have a head over heels, weak at the knees love of polka dots).   {I share your love for polka dots!! }

What products can we expect to see on your soon to launch website?!
Oh lots and lots of exciting things - homewares, childrens wear and decor, party styling needs, kitchen and bakeware, wedding needs and just lots and lots of gorgeous gorgeous things.   {Can't wait!!}

What are the top 3 blogs that you love to read at the moment?
I have so many! My favourites at the moment tho are The TomKat Studio (gorgeous party styling and decorating – posts on lots of things I love), Chic Mother and Baby Blog (great blog with lots of interesting content) and Sambellina (just because I love polka dots and adore their range).

What is your favourite movie and why?
I absolutely love all the classic girly movies – Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Gone with the Wind, Dirty Dancing, Grease, Titanic and Pretty Woman, but one of my favourite all time movies is ‘8 seconds’ – its the story of Lane Frost, a bull riding champion and the movie chronicles his life. It’s just one of those movies that touched my heart, and had some great elements a movie needs – love, life, drama and tears.

3 words to describe yourself?
Meticulous, holistic, affectionate.

Favourite place in the world and why?
I’d like to say Paris or Milan but honestly my favourite place is my house – this is the place where I get to kiss my man and my babies goodnight and see their gorgeous faces each morning, its the place where we laugh and play and have fun, where we come together in tough times and where all the good memories are made.

What is your goal for Sweet Little Birdy in the next 12 months?
I have so many ideas for Sweet Little Birdy and am so excited about the next 12 months. We plan to continually add to our collection, introduce new ideas, inspire people with how to use our products and to also help other people achieve their dream by sourcing products from the many talented and crafty people out there.
