A bit more about us 🤗 Media, Brags, Stockists and our hard earned Certifications 🤩
Some of our proudest moments have been when nominated in some very prestigious awards 🏆 and then, to be announced winners, runners up or finalists in these has been incredibly rewarding, satisfying and hugely complimentary to all the hard work by my myself and those who have believed in me and helped me through the highs and lows of the rollercoaster ride of small business.
Just recently (February 2023) we were nominated as a finalist in Australian Small Business Champion Awards 2023 - what an honour, winners will be announced May 2023...... stay tuned 🤩
A super special night was attending the "Australian Women's Small Business Champion Awards 2022" event at the Star Casino in Sydney with my partner, Geoff, my brother Michael and his beautiful wife, Justine 😄. We walked the red carpet and had a hoot, what an honour it was being nominated and such a privilege to attend and meet so many other amazing women in small business - THANK YOU 😊

Another proud moment in 2020 was to receive another prestigious award of "Best Eco-Ethical Women's Loungewear Brand 2020" From Lux Life Parent & Baby category.
And what a privilege to have my brand attending the NSW Women of the Year Awards was definitely a night I will never forget - so many AMAZING women and MC'd by the gorgeous Erin Molan.

I never thought I'd be featured in some of the amazing mags that I've admired over the years, Mama Disrupt, Peppermint Magazine, Country Style Magazine, M4 Women's Mag, The Natural Parent Magazine and I've also been interviewed by some very amazing people from websites like Ethical Made Easy, Britt's List, Valiant CEO, Medium, Luxury Advisor, Golden Stories and also interviewed on radio by Rob Palmer and Mandy Coolen at Triple M.
These are just a few of the wonderful experiences in my journey with BJ's PJs and Baby Origami DoubleWrap.
One of the best parts of running your own business (and of course trying to grow it) is getting to meet so many wonderful people and working with some fantastic brands which are changing the way we shop - COVID has changed the world and online shopping has become the norm for many!
Working with the Australian Fashion Council has been a wonderful experience, and working on the #WeWearAustralia Campaign was incredible.... click here for more info! And of course we love that we are part of the team at the Australian Made Campaign 🇦🇺Joining the Female Founder Collective has been a wealth of support and information, Maturing Mama and The Global Sisters has also been incredibly supportive and I've met so many wonderful women all working together #bettertogether 😍
Try@home has been our latest edition and offers you the opportunity to try before you buy - what is not to love about that!!! Shopping online can be fraught with danger, but not anymore - you've got nothing to lose, give it a go, that was a no brainer as we know you'll love them and want to keep them 🤩
We've also joined forces with the amazing App "My Offer" so you can negotiate your own discount in real time - check it out! And of course the pay later App, Klarna that enables you to buy now pay later.
We are working with Heaps Good to ensure our packaging is sustainable, compostable and plastic free. And, causes close to my heart, The Fashion Revolution and Good On You have supported us along our journey to ensure we are up to date with what's going on in the crazy world of fashion! 🤗
