Every year, for Women’s History Month, we like to spotlight some of the amazing and unique women owned businesses that we just can’t get enough of! As we know all too well, this mama-journey is so much better with a tribe - always and forever better together... and supporting fierce mamas that are in the workforce is what we all do best.
Jen Pinkston, founder of La Paloma, is a force to say the least! Not only is she the everything behind this amazing brand of organic cotton lounge and sleepwear for mamas and children – also sold at J. Crew – but she is an active mama of two! We are in love with the House Dresses, perfect for pregnancy, breastfeeding and postpartum.
Anook Athletics is quality workout wear that doesn’t stretch out, so you can actually wear it while pregnant and postpartum. To us, a no-brainer! Of course, we love founder Allie Lindenmuth, too. Her yoga background is so evident in the way she approaches her business (mindful) and her life (thoughtful) and what’s not to admire about her dedication to giving back – 10% of all profits go directly to This is About Humanity, maternal health efforts in Mexico, Canada and the United States.
Fenty Beauty is a household name - but after the Super Bowl, how can we deny Rihanna’s savvy marketing?! Pulling out a Fenty palette during the half time show – too cool! We love a boss babe (three months pregnant with a nine month old at home) that regardless of her fame, is not afraid of a little side hustle.
Colugo is a baby stroller and carrier company that designs the highest quality of baby and children’s products for all parents. Their compact stroller is a must-have stroller for everyday life and travel. Designed by mama of three Christy MacGregor, which means these strollers are thoughtfully designed with all important things taken into consideration - light-weight, easy to collapse and yes – affordable! And, we LOVE her philosophy, “helping you feel confident taking on the adventure of parenthood.”
Cut & Clarity – If MOLOCO founder, Mika Oakes, counts the “boobs” necklace as one of her staples, then the brand must align with ours. Made in NYC by mama and fearless founder, Mariana Russo Chambers, Cut & Clarity is fine jewelry that celebrates the time-honored practices of craftsmanship, artistry and diversity. Being huge proponents of anything that sparkles and has a real message behind it, we urge you to support this and all the mama brands we have spotlighted today.
