OUR FRIENDLY FOX BERTIE HAD A CATCH UP THIS WEEK WITH OUR FRIEND AND BRAND REP, STEPH, KNOWN TO MANY ON INSTAGRAM AS @stephloveshoney
STEPH AND HER #LITTLECUB ACE WERE OUR VERY FIRST BRAND REPS WAY BACK WHEN WE STARTED IN 2017! READ ON TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THIS LOVELY LADY AND FOLLOW HER OVER ON INSTAGRAM FOR FAMILY DAYS OUT AND ADVENTURES IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE.
1) Introduce yourself
Hi, I’m Steph, also known as @stephloveshoney on social media. I live in Cheltenham, (not too far from Cotswold Baby Co. HQ) and we love heading out on adventures all over Gloucestershire.
2) How many little cubs do you have?
I have two little cubs. My eldest is Honey, she’s 7 and due to start year 3 in September. She ADORES reading and making up her own stories, oh and she also loves Harry Potter. Ace is 4 now and due to start school in September, which he’s ready for, but I’m not! It doesn’t seem a minute since he was asked to be the first ever Cotswold Baby Co. Brand Rep when he was a teeny tiny two year old!
3) Where abouts do you live?
We live on the outskirts of Cheltenham, which gives us quick access to lots of country walks, but we can also get into town quickly when we need to.
4) Town or country?
During lockdown, we have firmly been in the countryside club, exploring old favourite walks and discovering loads of new ones too.
5) Early mornings or night owl?
6) Coffee or Tea?
I’ve never liked either! Over the last few years, I’ve learnt to appreciate the odd hot chocolate after a chilly walk or trip to the park.
7) Any pets?
8) Favourite tipple
Genuinely, my favourite drink is water. If I’m having alcohol, it’s got to be a WKD Blue or a glass of rosé.
9) Favourite season
I love summer because it’s much easier to pack for days out! No need to carry cardigans and coats round with us, plus no need to wear socks! I’m not a sun worshipper, but I do love having all the doors and windows flung open.
10) Facebook or Insta?
11) What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Showtime, starring Jenna Dewan. I’ve also loved Chesapeake Shores and Virgin Rivers.
12) Secret crush
It’s not a secret, but Channing Tatum is my entire laminated list 😉
I’m a Primary School Teacher. My favourite year groups to teach are Reception and Key Stage 1. Since having the children, I now teach part-time and spend the rest of my week adventuring with my little cubs and often blogging about what we get up to.
14) Any hobbies?
I love taking photographs of the kids and would love to be able to edit them properly. I’m sure I’ll find the time to learn once Ace starts school. I love walking in the countryside and am looking forward to being able to get back in the pool for a swim!
15) Favourite food
16) Favourite place to go on hols
Woolacombe holds a special place in our hearts. We visit every May, (apart from this year) and got engaged there in 2011. We also love camping and sunset chasing near Bude.
17) What did you miss most during lockdown?
The kids are missing their grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins, but they have become expert FaceTimers and chat to them a few times per week.
18) What did you like most about lockdown?
I loved all the time that lockdown gave us. As I only work part-time, I could mostly fit my work around bedtimes and my husband’s time off. Honey came into work with me a few times too, which she loved! For us, lockdown flew by in a blur or country walks and craft activities.
19) What should you be doing right now?
Right now, Ace is lying next to me in bed watching the rest of Lego Movie 2, so I should be watching too, but I’m just singing along as I type instead!
20) Best bit about being a Cotswold Baby Co. Brand Rep
We have absolutely adored being Brand Reps for Cotswold Baby Co. over the last few years. Kate and Rachael are so lovely and they’re amazing at picking beautiful pieces and building amazing collections. We have been able to promote favourite brands like Frugi and Blade and Rose, as well as discovering new favourites like Kite. We loved meeting fellow reps at the photo shoots and enjoy following them online and seeing how they style their Cotswold Baby Co purchases!
