I know I haven’t been active on Instagram for a very long time, so it’s only fair you get an explanation as to what’s going on.
When I was 14, I didn’t really feel like I belonged. I didn’t have many friends, I felt as though I was under a lot of pressure from my school, and I was “that girl” who ate her lunch in the toilets.
I created Tommi Co. to give myself a sense of purpose, as well as a way to do something I loved with my favourite pup in the world.
I’m now nearly 17 a lot of things in my life have changed and big decisions are starting to make an appearance- such as what I’m going to do with my life once I finish my time in education.
Since I started college, I’ve got a job, made some incredible friends, and I’ve felt myself change. When I look in the mirror now, I feel like a new person, not only because of how I look, but also because of my new-found confidence.
I’m so much happier now, but going out with friends, working four days a week and being in full time education has meant I don’t have as much time for Tommi Co.
Running a small business, no matter how tiny, is a massive responsibility that takes up a lot of time and effort. I do everything myself, from scrolling for hours trying to find the perfect material, to handwriting individual Thank-You notes, to constantly updating the website I created myself. This can take up so much time and really stress me out, especially during busy periods like Christmas.
Therefore, despite absolutely adoring everything about Tommi Co. I’ve decided to take a step back for now. I still have so many projects and new products I want to show you, but at the moment I think it’s important to focus on me.
For that reason, everything is currently 30% off on shoptommi.co.uk! It’s not in any way a Closing Down Sale, think of it more as a See You Soon Sale.
I really hope you understand, and I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for giving me such an amazing experience at such a young age. I feel so blessed to have made such incredible friends, had support from my wonderful brand reps, and made a little bit of pocket money from doing something I absolutely love ❤️ See you soon,
