I’m absolutely thrilled to be recognised for all the hard work and sacrifice that being a mumpreneur entails; it took years to create the baby safe formulation of our babybathbombs so this Award means a great deal to me! Am very excited to attend the Awards Ceremony and meet fellow finalists and find out if I have done enough to win!
