Starting our Instagram journey did not only connect us to amazing LGBTQIA+ couples around the world, but also gave us the chance to meet and work together with bold entrepreneurs and their amazing small businesses.
If Aga and I have to choose between a big and a small brand we always go for the small one. Because we’re deeply impressed by the love and the passion that people put into following their dreams.
Even if it seems undoable – yet, they make it happen.
Especially during those hard times, it’s so important to support small businesses, because it’s a way to look out and to look after each other.
If we don’t care for each other, who does?
Today we introduce some of our favourite small brands, that we’ve been working together this year.
Maybe you will find your fall-must-have and support with your purchase someones else’s dream!
Let’s start with our first small business collaboration in 2020.
Anna designs amazing adult coloring pieces. Illustrating has a very special place in her heart, because she is so grateful that her art spreads fun and joy between people and around the globe. Her goal is to create more than just a coloring page. She aims to motivate people to create art, that they cherish and display.
But between creating, motherhood, building her own brand and the pandemic it has never been easy for her.
When Rachael and Sarah reached out to us about working together, we had no idea what to expect, but of course we said YES! We definitely can’t remember that we ever met anyone being so active engaging (and sooo cute) with the community like those two sunshines.
In such a short time they managed, that all our small international LGBTQ community knows the name of their cozy brand. And btw. we love our jumpers so much!!!!
Lauren and Elmira thought that most of the sex toys that you can buy in regular shops aren’t very interesting for a lesbian couple, so they decided to create their own! Online and offline, they have been working 24/7 and even though the pandemic didn’t make it easy for them they managed to open their own business by the 31.08.2020.
First things first – nobody knows the two ladies behind this brand.
They decided to run their business anonymously. So it’s a little mystery – but even we might not know the names (YET!) but, we do get a feeling for those passionate girls, that follow their dream and created a badass project!
At this point it’s important for us to let you know, that we love to support small businesses. Are you following your dream already?
Even if your parents and friends keep on telling you, that it will be too hard, the competition is too big or it’s too much work?
Don’t listen, just go for it!
We hope we could inspire you with some stories of amazing creators!
To say it with Anna’s words:
If you can dream it – you can do it! Don’t let anyone stop you from making it happen!
And so you know: if you have a small business (or if you know someone who needs some media attention): Aga and I are always happy to support dreams. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
