Meet Jazmin the mama behind fab baby Brand The Milk Collective in our Q&A catch up! We love this brand due it's simple yet fun designs. Their super soft Milk Bottle Rattles have been a hit with our fans so it's no wonder that this uber cool brand is also being stocked in Liberty London!
Who are the people behind The Milk Collective and where are you based?
The Milk Collective is a baby brand myself (Jaz) my husband Ben who does all of our behind the scenes web development and graphic design work.
Tell us about you, your hobbies and family?
Well, my name is Jazmin but I go by Jaz and I'm originally from Boston, USA. I emigrated to the UK about 8 years ago after marrying my wonderful husband in Italy where we lived for a short time. We now have two gorgeous kids, Jude Louie, 3.5 years and Lola Coco, 2 years. Our hobbies are usually revolved around music, creating, food and wine. Now that the kids are getting a bit older we have a bit more freedom to explore and we really can't wait to travel around with them showing them all of the spectacular things this beautiful world has to offer.
When did it launch and how was it created?
The Milk Collective was launched back in 2014 just before the birth of my daughter. I'd like to think that it was sort of a happy accident, I fell into it and have been enjoying the ride ever since. I have always been a creative and owning my own shop was huge goal mine so I started creating plush toy creatures. They have since been discounted but they really paved the way for me enter this amazing new world.
What do you like to do when you're not busy making amazing products and running The Milk Collective?
I’m always working on a project. If it’s not for the shop then it will be for the house. I'm a bit of a DIY aficionado to be honest. My dream is to build our own house one day.
What's been your biggest accomplishment?
Having our products stocked in Liberty London is definitely the biggest achievement to date. I never thought anything like this would be possible, I still have to pinch myself when I think about it because I just can't believe what we've accomplished!
If you could go to dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
I am going to be cringe worthy here but I have to say my husband Ben. He's my best friend and everything seems possible when we are together. Not to mention he makes me laugh to the point of tears and really laughter is the best medicine, isn't it?!
What’s on your playlist?
Not the typical stuff that’s for sure. I have an eclectic taste in music. My real heart lies with electronic music though. One of my favourite songs at the moment is Metal Swing by The Range.
What’s your quote of the day?
It's a quote by Erin Hanson and its meaning something my mum has try to instill in me since before I can remember.
“There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, What if you fly?”
Thank you Jazmin for giving us and our readers an insight into your uber cool business and your family life! We don't think it's cringe that you'd want to take your hubby out for dinner, it's super cute x
