Small Businesses I Love


Yesterday was Small Business Saturday and I shared a few that I love on stories. I love these businesses so much I wanted a full post on them. Each of these businesses has their own unique ideas and items.  They not only have great gifts for the Holidays but are places I love to shop year round!



William & Lauren is a custom suit company. The brand has made it more affordable to have the suit of your dreams. Beyond being cut to your exact measurements, you get to pick out everything: fabric, lining, buttons and thread. Many times an off the rack suit can feel stuffy and cookie cutter but when you have control of the design you can create something unique. If you don't need a full suit, you can order jackets and pants individually.

If the idea of picking out everything yourself is a little overwhelming you have help! The owner, Lauren, can give suggestions and lead in you in the right direction. Outside of a Christmas gift, the suits are a great gift for birthdays, graduation or groomsmen gifts! Or better yet, treat yourself!

Suits aren't just for the men, William & Lauren just came out with Women's suits. I have ordered one and once it is in, I'll be sharing the whole process with you. 



While there are many online boutiques, Shop Lawson has quickly become a favorite of mine. This new shop carries an array of cute women's clothing and accessories. They lend themselves to a more casual, everyday vibe. Every few months they come out with more items so I am always checking to see what they have. Lately I've been eyeing a few of the sweaters and cardigans. 



Stoney Clover Lane has amazing customizable products. The pouches, bags and other accessories can all be customized with the patches they have. I love getting on the site and using the customizer tool to create new pouches. For anyone that likes to travel or stay organized the pouches are the ultimate gift. I've actually purchased a few of these as a Christmas gift to myself.

There are so many planners on the market and I have used many of them. As someone that loves to create lists and write things down, I'll never completely go to electronic planners. Once I made my first Golden Coil planner, I knew I wouldn't use any other. The planners are completely customizable with tons of options for pages. You can upload schedules and significant dates to be included as well. I've created a planner for the blog where I have pages to plan out my posts, social media schedules and an area for lists of ideas. I've used it for the past year and actually just ordered a new one for 2021.



Lush is one of my favorite local stops for trendy or seasonal fashions. I can count on them to always have cute sweaters and great trendy t-shirts. Their clothing items and accessories would all make great gifts. For the sports fan, they make great spirit wear too! For almost every holiday or season they come out with new items, check out the sparkly items for the holidays! What I've been loving the most lately, is their lounge wear.


I've always loved classic gold jewelry pieces. Besides the beautiful designs, Sahira Jewelry is meant to be lived in. You can sweat, swim and shower in the pieces! As someone that works out on the regular, I appreciate having a necklace or earrings that I don't have to take off when I sweat!
