As you all know, I am an Ambassador for BeebiesBabyStore.com and what you might not know is that Beebies has been shortlisted for the Loved By Parents Awards 2014 for 'Best Independent Retailer'! How exciting is that?! Ami did a post all about it that you can read here and it would mean the world to all of us if you could vote here.
I say 'we' because Ami really does get all of the ambassadors involved, we probably speak most days if not every day about Beebies and how the business is growing or what needs more focus. The website recently hit a record number of views which was just brilliant. It really is like a little family unit and we really care about Beebies and how it is doing.
With that being said, we have the upcoming #welovebeebies weekend that is super exciting. The aim is to get #welovebeebies trending and I really hope that all together we can make it happen. Ami works so hard on the business, always thinking of new ideas and stocking the most brilliant items so she definitely deserves it.
It is starting on Friday 27th June, with the first session being from 12-3pm. During this time @ChelleMccann will be hosting the Beebies Baby Awards with some amazing prizes up for grabs! Then from 3-5pm Ami herself is doing an 'ask the owner' session, you can get to now her a little better during this live Q&A so you can see for yourself how lovely and deserving she is!
On Saturday 28th June, you could be in with a chance of winning £100 Beebies vouchers if you blog about why Beebies is getting your vote as 'Best Independent Retailer'. Tweet the post using #welovebeebies before 9pm on 28th June to be entered. Winner will be announced Sunday 29th June at 10am!
On Sunday after the winner has been announced, at 1-3pm there will be a Beebies Top Tips session with a very special guest or two so keep a look out for that! Then from 8-9pm is #BabyHour where Beebies will share our favourite Baby, Toddler & Maternity products with some special offers!
"Hello! I am Ami, the owner of Beebies Baby Store. At Beebies we offer a wide range of products to suit your needs from Bump to Pre-Schooler from both well known and independent brands.
There is nothing more annoying than receiving an item from a trusted brand, to find that it's not up to standard or as good as the marketing spiel said it was. That's why each item available at www.beebiesbabystore.com is hand picked by me, based on recommendation and reviews. I do not have children myself yet, and so often I seek the advice of my lovely ambassadors & Mummy friends before recommending them to others, ensuring quality at all times. It has always been my intention to only sell things that I would buy myself for my own children one day.
I am a big fan of handmade items, mainly because more often than not, each item will be slightly different to the one before.
Many of our items are handmade to order, including our ever popular Fabric Fancies food. The time & effort which goes in to each item is evident from the amazing amount of detail.
The beauty of working with 'hand-makers' is that it gives our customers the freedom to contact us with a specific request. I once had a lady come to me and ask if there was any way I could find and sell her a dress made from a specific fabric. Within an hour, she was already discussing her needs with a designer & it was made and sent within a few days! Who can say no to a beautifully bespoke, one of a kind dress huh?
I am so excited to have been shortlisted in the 'Best Independent Retailer' category of the Loved by Parents Awards. Whether you love the number of big brands available or would like to know more about our range of beautifully handmade lovelies, please consider voting for us. It really would mean the world!"
We really hope you can get involved with the Twitter chats and find a love for Beebies like all of us have. If you haven't been onto the Beebies website I suggest you go and take a look :) (I can't be held responsible for the amount of money you will spend though!)
