During this time of uncertainty it is so important that we are a community and not competitors. We are all in this together.

My work of late has been supporting women in business. So what better way than create a short film with some talented North Wales photographers.

However the message really is for you , yes you our customers.

We miss you all so much, your smiles, the laughter, the tears and your friendship. Your support already through this time has been amazing, and we know it will not be much longer till we are with you documenting your special occasions.

But for now, get your camera take the photos of the good days, the bad days and the days where you stay in your PJs all day drinking tea & biscuits or Gin :) We will all get through this time and plan a way forward together .

Stay Safe Xxxx

Set in Port Penhryn with spectacular views and serenity, is this modern and very beautiful Advanced skin care salon. Caroline was so supportive of my Women in Business project and was excited to be part of it.

Caroline met me with the biggest smile and welcomed me into her gorgeous workspace. My eyes instantly drawn to the William Morris wallpaper I knew I was going to love Caroline.

Caroline has worked within the beauty industry for over 16 years, yet her passion for what she does is at its strongest. I kept forgetting to take pictures as I was so captivated by her extensive knowledge and pure desire to educate everyone on how to protect and enhance our skin without intrusive procedures. I was being educated by the minute and I love that she encourages and teaches her 2 daughters the importance of healthy diets and skincare regime from such a young age. I wanted to just stay all day and watch her work.

Caroline uses world renown brands including :

Environ - pharmaceutical grade home care products and in Salon Treatments,

Advanced Nutrition Programme - Skin Specific Supplements,

Jane Iredale - Skin Care Make Up,

SkinPen - Micro Needling and Dermalux, multi award winning LED therapy.

The beautiful salon ensures that you get a very personal 1:1 experience. Caroline creates a programme suited to your own skin .

Every time I asked a question Caroline would light up, explaining in great detail even showing me books with the science behind our skin.

Caroline was so perfect to showcase during this project as not only is she a mum/women in business. She is someone who is empowering others daily through educating and support.

Thankyou Caroline, it was so great meeting you.

Martha Loves Ltd is based on the Llyn Peninsula and creates bold, funky and unique handmade children's underwear.

I was met by the most cheerful duo, who instantly made me smile. The bond between these two creative and hardworking ladies was inspiring.

Their days are filled with humour , singing and dancing . Rachael has always had a love for sewing and making handmade pieces for her children. However she admitted that without Alex's support and encouragement she does not feel she would have made the decision to become self employed. But as a pair the Martha Loves brand was born.

The name Martha Loves is inspired by Rachael's youngest child Martha. Who is a huge part of the business and the office was filled with lovely artwork created by Martha herself.

What stood out to me the most was Rachael and Alex's passion, they dedicate every moment to their business and they truly love what they do. They are part of every process of the business from the website creation, photographing their stock, standing at festivals , designing and making the clothing. Every piece is made with such gorgeously sourced fabrics with such detail and care.

When I left the office I felt I had known these ladies for years and that true friends were made. Their positive and uplifting personalities are completely infectious. I feel so honoured to have had the pleasure to see behind the scenes of Martha Loves.

Thankyou Rachael and Alex Xx
