This Sunday we are sitting down for a virtual coffee with Lou from Budburst Kids. I have had the pleasure of meeting Lou personally twice now and she is absolutely gorgeous and so very friendly. Budburst Kids is a lovely online store and I have always been really pleased with my orders, a real bonus for me is that Lou lives in South Australia too so my mail arrives in the blink of an eye!

Sadly I can not introduce her to you in person but at least I can show you the face behind Budburst Kids:

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
A sunny day, pancakes for breakfast on the balcony, a family walk through the nearby Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens, and drinks with friends in the afternoon.

Why did you start Budburst Kids?
After selling kids clothing on Ebay as a hobby for several years, I found many Australian suppliers that I wanted to showcase in my own store where I could sell quality products at great prices, but with my individual style and beliefs shining through. Having previously worked in the viticulture industry, I loved the process of “bud burst” where the bud of a plant begins to spring into life and comes into its own; much like a child developing and growing. So “Budburst Kids” was born along with our slogan, “See your child bloom!”

What can we expect of Budburst Kids in the future?
Budburst Kids continues to expand and grow. Expect to find more and more gorgeous dresses, accessories, toys and gifts for kids & mums, plus more fun party wear – because kids love a party!

What is your favourite item in store?
I have many favourites but I just love the MOGO charm band range as it is inexpensive, extensive and suitable for boys, girls and even Mum!

What is your top tip for mums preparing for a new arrival?
I can only narrow it down to two top tips:
1. Buy a maternity dress you love, that makes you feel beautiful right up until the baby comes along, it will do wonders for your self esteem when you need it most!
2. Be prepared for a tough (but beautiful) start to motherhood. I think that if you make it through the first six weeks with a smile, you can get through any of it!
