It’s been a while since I’ve been active but I’m back with a new post about my time in Atlanta, Georgia.

It’s been great being able to travel and meet new people, especially in business. I was fortunately able to attend the Boss Babes of Atlanta business event which was made up of both upcoming and established brands from the area and beyond. 

If you know me, you know I’m all about networking to promote my own independent business, Unique Boutique London, as well as supporting other brands, both male and female orientated so I had to whip out my camera and capture some moments!

Killer Mermaid Shop

The Killer Mermaid Shop creates some mesmerising handmade clutch bags in various designs that sparkle out of this world. I’m a big fan of sparkle, which is a fundamental part of my crochet brand Gemini Designs. Anything handmade also tickles my tastebuds because of the work that has gone into making each design as perfect as can be. This was definitely a brand that caught my eye from the start and you should definitely check them out.

The gorgeous owners of Icy Lene

I was amazed at how people were so supportive of each other whether the brands were big or small. It’s much more difficult to establish a vibe like this in UK pop up shop events in my experience, but these ladies pulled it off effortlessly.

The beautiful ladies from Secure The Ring

The fabulous ladies from Secure The Ring didn’t exhibit at the event but came there with positive energy for everyone including me. A big thank you for supporting my book, Time is Money, and the exclusive t-shirt! I’ll have some pictures out soon so you can all grab your t-shirts too and support the movement.

SwimKei and friends

If all independent businesses supported each other, not necessarily financially but even through word of mouth or social media like this very blog post, we could help each other take bigger steps within our industries. There will always be competition but there’s enough room at the top for everyone. 

Be sure to check out all the brands I’ve mentioned on Instagram and Twitter. They all have something different to offer, the people behind the brands are great and most importantly they’re open minded and ready to connect!
