Hi, tell us your name and a little bit about you and your family
Hey! I’m Sam, I’m 29 and I live in lovely Oxfordshire with my other half, Stuart, and our two cat babies Jess & Minnie. I’m originally from a little town in County Durham, where all of my family still live. I have a degree in fashion design and graduated around 5 years ago.
What inspired you to start your insta shop?
Most of my inspiration comes from my nieces, nephews and my little sister Millie. I want them to always know how loved they are. I think it’s so important that children grow up knowing that that they are brave, that they are fearless and that they are strong.
So I started to create prints with catchy words and slogans for children’s apparel and nursery décor and that is how I Am Loved was born.
If you had to give one piece of advice to someone thinking of setting up an insta shop / etsy what would it be?
Believe in yourself and your dream
Who do you feel inspired by on Instagram?
There are so so many people who inspire me. Especially those working mamas who are also running their own businesses like @lennieanco. I mean those women are super heroes. I struggle to look after myself and the cats along side this so hats off to all you Mamas!
Tell us a little bit more about where you want I am Loved to be in 5 years time?
I would like to be running I Am Loved full time. And would love to see the brand being sold in stores all over the world.
What’s your favourite insta purchase and why?
One of my favourite instagram purchases is my Jesus Origami Diamond from @origami_est. And I currently have a little bit of an obsession with buying prints for the house. Some of my faves are from @osotwee, @thelittlejones and @thenativestate.
As a thankyou for being a blog reader Sam is kindly offering 20% purchases using LOVED20 until Friday 28th April.
Thanks to Sam for taking the time to answer our questions and don’t hesitate to go over to Iamloved give her a follow – you won’t regret it we promise!
