In the few hours since our #sbs win we have been overwhelmed with the response on Twitter and the number of hits on our website. We are both so chuffed and absolutely thrilled to have won and so glad we persevered with coming up with what we hoped would be a winning tweet week after week!


Dorothy & Theodore is an online shopping boutique which specialises in stylish, beautiful but still practical products for parent and child. At Dorothy & Theodore you will find everything from accessories for the home to traditional wooden toys, maternity wear, children’s wear, furniture and even cupcakes, along with some truly special, unique and often personalised and handmade gifts, all in one place. As parents ourselves, each with two young children, we spent hours trawling the internet to find child-friendly yet stylish products for our home and unique gifts ideas for a new baby, a Christening or a little boy's or girl's birthday that are not mass-produced. Sharing frustrations over coffee and cake one afternoon led us to the idea for Dorothy & Theodore; a website which would not only solve the problem and hopefully relieve some of these same frustrations for others, but also give us the opportunity to share some of our personal favourite finds along with the perfect excuse to find some more! We personally select all the sellers who sell through Dorothy & Theodore and we are committed to supporting small UK handmade businesses where we are able with a significant proportion of our sellers being fellow UK based working parents. Many of our sellers offer beautiful hand-crafted items, which can often be personalised to make them that extra bit special. We have been trading since 15 September 2011 – an odd date to have picked given it was one week before Sally gave birth and just five weeks after Emma had!


Be prepared for it to be more hard work than you anticipate, particularly in areas that you may not necessarily enjoy. It is not just about doing what you love – you have to be prepared to put in the leg work too. And remember, it takes time - success does not happen overnight!

The joys of not being preggers at Christmas. A large @Baileys_GB or two. (Oh, and the beautiful baby lying next to me! ;))
