Over the last few months, I have had the absolute pleasure of getting to know Lisa from Owl & Monkey. What started off as a snapchat chat, turned into me helping her tweak a few things on her website which has now turned into a friendship I am incredibly grateful for. This blog is not a “I’m just writing this because she gave my kid a tutu” thing, this is a “my friend makes something magical and amazing and I feel like the world needs to know” kind of thing.
Miss I isn’t your typical girly girl. She’s almost like a wild wolf pup child. She loves to have her crazy curls down, be and run around naked, pulls funny faces, says inappropriate things at inappropriate times (totes gets that from me!) and definitely loves to buck all trends. She likes Frozen but LOVES Star wars. She likes being a ballerina princess but only if she can play rough and tumble in her tutu… bare butt of course. Our tea parties involve bugs and milk mixed with tuna not fancy cups of tea and cakes.
When Lisa offered to make Miss I a tutu, frozen colours were chosen and it was love at first sight. The first words out of her mouth were “WOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!”. I will even admit that I was slightly jealous it was for her. It was and still is utterly beautiful! This tutu has covered many kms in the car with us and has been shown off to a shit ton of people!
Lisa is a talented wee lady who can make any tutu dream come true. Each piece of tulle is hand tied by her and the amount of time, effort and love that she puts in to each one really shows- the end result is utter tutu perfection. It doesn’t stop there though! Want a customised onesie or tee shirt to match? An adult tutu? Some hair accessories to go with everything? She can do that too- Clever right?!
I know my fav snaps of hers SHOULD be the ones where she is creating tutus but they are actually the ones where she is crafting up tee shirts and onesies. One minute it’s blank, the next.. it is has pretty stuff on it! It’s the simple things in life that make me happy.
If you are after something beautiful and magical then be sure to stop by Owl & Monkey and let Lisa create something special for you or you fav little one. I promise you, you wont regret it and you’ll end up loving her as much as I do!
Lisa has ever so kindly given me a wee discount code for you to get in on the Owl & Monkey goodness! The code HEYLITTLESWEETTHING will give you $5 off your orders over $50 until the end of the month!
Now.. it’s off to decide which Easter tee to get Miss I!
