I met a rather lovely lady called Sophie at a bloggers meet a few weeks ago, and as soon as she mentioned that she made jewellery I wanted to find out more. Obviously, like most women I have a magpie tendency and a love for all things shiny, but also it always interests me to hear how someone has started their own business. When someone goes it alone, stepping away from their normal day-to-day job I find that inspiring. And Sophie’s story about how she started her business whilst living in India with her family fascinated me. I took at look at her EsmeLoves site after we met and fell in love with everything! Sophie’s pieces are classic, timeless and elegant and there is a lovely theme of all generations of women being able to wear the jewellery. She’s here to tell me more about her business.
I’ve been on the look out for some decent ankle boots for about, oooh, five years now. I always play it safe when it comes to buying shoes, as in, I rarely buy any, hence playing it massively safe. For one, the money thing and two, I tend to stick to what I wear the most, and that happens to be trainers. I’m a trainer girl through and through, only straying to flip flops when the weather is warmer and heels if pushed. But stomping around woods and parks in wet leaves and mud in trainers, doesn’t really work and often leads to ‘soggy foot’. I needed some decent ankle boots to see me through the colder weather, so it was well timed that I was invited along to a blogger event at Hotter Shoes in Guildford.
