OUR FRIENDLY FOX BERTIE HAD A CATCH UP THIS WEEK WITH OUR FRIEND AND BRAND REP, KATIE, KNOWN ON INSTAGRAM AS @KATIE.MARIE_AND_PHOEBE.ROSE.
WE FIRST MET KATIE BACK IN 2018 WHEN HER #LITTLECUB PHOEBE JOINED US AS A BRAND REP. WE’VE LOVED WATCHING THIS LITTLE CUB GROW FROM A CUTE TODDLER TO A COUNTRY-LOVING LITTLE GIRL!

All the extra quality time with Phoebe.

Sleeping! I’ve just finished wrapping Phoebe’s birthday presents while watching Suits on Netflix, with a cup of tea and chocolate. I can barely keep my eyes open!
20) Best bit about being a Cotswold Baby Co. Brand Rep
Being a brand rep feels like being part of a family and the team insta messages are great!
I love that all farm and country print clothing can be found in the same place.
I’ve also learnt so much about supporting small businesses, organic clothing and lots of different brands that I’d not heard of before.
We also loved being part of the two photoshoots when we first started!
