Loving Dot, a new company

I just want to put this bit in....I really feel I do have a habit of jumping in to things very quick, I always like to see the good in people. I do often do things & introduce people to things without thinking about it for a while. I don't personally know Bethany at all. But I'm 100% sure I won't regret telling you all about Bethany, the girl behind Loving Dot.

I came across Bethany a couple of weeks ago & she has recently opened up her own online business, at the age of 16...how incredible is that! :) I asked Bethany if she'd like to feature on a post for me, to help promote Loving Dot. She was up for it so after exchanging a few emails we had a blog post ready. I really hope you enjoy it, here goes....

 Hello, I am Bethany Wood. I am 16 and currently at college studying graphic design. I blog over at www.fairybetty.co.uk and have just opened a online accessories shop... www.lovingdot.co.uk. I love dogs, cats, all things retro in style, tea and chocolate biscuits.

Meet Bethany

1. What made you decide to create loving dot as a little newborn company?
I have always wanted to own a shop and when I stated my graphic design course at college I realised it was what I wanted to do. I decided I wanted to turn my hand drawn designs into useful products for lovely ladies of all ages and with a lot of love and hard work loving dot was born. 

2. What's the meaning behind the company name? 
I wanted to make the name personal to me so our name is based on my family dog a jack Russell cross Dot. She is rather cute and although she is a jack Russell know for having short legs hers are huge and she runs like a whippet.

3. How do you plan to balance work, college, family & friends?
It's always a tricky one although loving dot is what I want to do for the rest of my life and I want nothing more than to make it a success I HAVE to put college first and get my qualifications. It's my intention to go to university but loving dot will be going with me I have no doubt about that. The last few months friend and family have took a back seat :'( I am hoping that I will get into the swing of it and have more time but my family are very understanding and help me lots. I use my college time to socialise with my friends and always leave a few hours a week to meet up with them! It's very important in my opinion whenever I speak to self employed people they always say the only downside is the lonely feeling. But I don't have that problem I guess you could say I have the best of both worlds!

4.  What kind of products can we expect to see in the future from loving dot?  
Oo you can definitely expect nail transfers and pin badges in the very very near future so keep your eyes pealed and keep checking our website www.lovingdot.co.uk I also hope to bring tote bags, greetings cards and posters.

You can always stay tuned via our social networking accounts:

I'd like to say a massive thank you to Bethany for allowing me to do a blog post about her new little business. At the age of 16 I think Bethany is very inspiring & hopefully has a successful future infront of her. It wouldn't be right promoting Bethany & not actually supporting Bethany's store so I purchased two pocket mirrors. One for myself & another for my mum's friend for her daughter as a gift. Both of us are highly delighted. I would definitely recommend & suggest that you watch this space too. I mean who doesn't love unique products, I'd much rather go independent store than high street. Here is the mirror I purchased....

It'd be lovely if you sent Bethany some love & checked out her store. I don't think any of you lovely ladies will be disappointed. Adorable items, at very affordable prices. Be sure to let me know if you check out her store & if you make any purchases too.

Thanks again to Bethany & thanks to you for reading.
- Anna ♥
