One Mama One Shed Load of Inspiration from Emma (Little Hotdog Watson)

Little Hotdog Watson

Hello, I’m Emma, 39, mum to two girls and owner of kids sun and winter hats brand LITTLE HOTDOG WATSON. We live in Norwich and spend our time when not designing stylish + innovative hats at the beach or eating sushi

This week I'm reading...I don’t have a lot of time for books but I do read a lot of blog posts. Currently reading the Business Of Fashion McKinsey report on retail for 2020 - if you’re in fashion it’s a key read every year.

Watching… Fleabag! I’m late to the party I know. Having a baby last year seemed to throw my tv watching out of place. I am loving it! Phoebe Waller Bridge is a fantastic actress and I love her style on the red carpet too.

Listening to…sadly Desert Island Disc I love being introduced to completely different music via people I love. Thom Yorke had some fabulous / whacky choices and Lizzo(!) 

Stalking...I alway check out my friend Erna @mercer7official. She has been writing about womens sustainabilty and timeless style for years and I trust her opinion also as a small business. I also love a new instagram Bloc and Rose who talk about word of mouth advertising and honestly for always keeping it real and making me laugh my friend Lauren @laurenashleygordon.

Talking about…sustainability in fashion. I teach Fashion Communication alongside the business and it’s a hot topic with students about what is truly sustainable versus greenwashing and how small businesses seem to be doing a better job at this than big businesses.

Wondering...when the sunshine is finally going to arrive for spring

Admiring…Billy Porter style during award season. My background is in menswear and I am loving his bold choices and the way he is raising awareness of young designers like Alex Vinesh.

Going…to Cromer, Norfolk for a stroll along the prom and for some chips.

Wearing… living in my adult’s winter hat from the range in Navykin and my Tartan Blanket Company X Anna Cascarina Scarf.

Cooking...poki bowls

Poke bowl

Drinking…lemsip :(

Looking after myself by…spending 5 minutes in the evening to properly cleanse and moisturise my skin. I turn 40 this year :) I was bought the foreo vibrating cleanser tool for xmas - seems crazy but combined with Cerave Mositurising cleanser my skin feels great even on no sleep days

Spending my money on...birthdays my little turns one soon

Wishing I had money for...always holidays. 

Grateful family, always

Working on...being less grumpy in the morning

Trying to be a better person by...taking a moment before replying.
