Meet our mom crush….
So I just love meeting inspiring moms, someone who manages to balance all the chaos of kids, parenting, and running their own business. That’s why I just had to interview this gorgeous local designer mama, Meet Reese- mommy to Lily and Ivy and owner of “My scattered heart boutique”
I chatted to Reese about motherhood, raising two girls, and running her beautiful boutique MSH.
MG; Reese, how could we not crush on you? You have two gorgeous little girls, and you’re always dressed in beautiful clothing- tell us more about you and you’re family.
MG; what inspired you to start you’re boutique MSH and what is you’re line all about?
Oh gosh thank you, Une!, how lovely of you to say!
When Lily was born in 2012 I immediately decided to leave my position with Hertex Fabrics (which I totally loved) but could only imagine being home all day with my sweet baby girl!
So MSH was a little dream I decided to make my reality!
MSH is a celebration for Summer nostalgia which features a variety of artistic prints that bring to life dreamy collections of playfulness and easy to wear cuts that burst with personality!
MG; Any favorites in you’re range right now?
Reese; I am living in my Ivy dress right now (named after my second daughter) it has gorgeous flowers and Ivy printed into the cotton fabric and of course the ever favorite Festival flowers dress which all my friends now have! How lovely is that!
MG; what do you guys as a family do for fun?
Reese; We live at Nahoon Mouth which is this beach families dream! There is Nahoon River and then the famous Nahoon reef surf break which has super surf and swimming all year round! East London is balmy and tropical which is so wonderful to bring up little ocean babes in!
MG; what is the one thing motherhood has taught you?
Reese; To laugh more, listen more and love a little more everyday. Of all the journeys I have been on being Lily and Ivy’s Mom is by far my best!
MG; so tell us more about MSH kids?
Reese; MSH kids is a tribute to children, their imagination and sense that everything is possible! Plenty of colorful playful prints will be on offer in this range. Unique dresses and blouses that will be easy to wear and fun to be in!
MG; what makes MSH special and different ?
Reese; I think the journey to where MSH has lead up to and our loyal customers is what makes it special and different. Our buyers have followed and supported us from selling at little markets to our move online to now being present on websites such as Spree and Superbalist – it has been an ever changing journey for us which just keeps getting more exciting every year!
MG; planning on any more babies on the future? Maybe a boy?
Reese; I love this question! Ivy shall be turning 1 next month so I am sure I shall be starting to wonder about a little friend for her soon! Oh and a boy would just be the best! You never know…
MG; how do you balance motherhood and running you’re own business?
Reese; This is a tricky balance but I have a great support system at home and make sure to be home as much as possible at the office. Lily has really showed interest this year in MSH and has even helped me decide on some of the fabrics for MSH kids! I think it’s so important for children to see what their parents do and to be apart of it where they can!
MG; what would you say is a “must have” fashion piece that any girl needs?
Reese; The go to dress! We all have those days when we need a little pick me up feel good Dress! Awake all night with our babies or a sick little one can make us look and feel super tired! I usually put on the Fields Of Gold dress for days like these! The flattering fit and flowy colorful fabric is an instant pick me up!
MG; any family rituals?
Reese; We love our family dinners around our dining room table! Giving thanks for the day we have had and being thankful for what is ahead!
MG; last but not least… where can we find you and MSH?
