A visit to the Aden + Anais Pop Up Store was well worth a Saturday afternoon at a tourist-packed Harrods. I received a well versed swaddling demo, converted to the super-soft Bamboo swaddles and left with a great goody bag.
However, my favourite part was meeting the fabulous Raegan Moya-Jones. Strangely, I felt giddy with nerves at the thought of meeting her. Perhaps it is because she is a celeb in her own right. A mother of four who has built her own empire and still looks super glam! What a lot to aspire to.
She was SO friendly and smiled all the way through our meeting. She happily allowed me to take a photo with her (I NEVER do that, not even with movie stars!) and signed the book I received in my goody bag.
So what did I learn about Raegan?
- Her favourite quote is by John Burroughs: “Leap, and the net will appear.”
- She never, ever advertised Aden + Anais! She relied solely on the quality of the product and the word of mouth of mums.
- Her favourite Aden + Anais products are the Prince Charming and Princess Posie prints. These were the first to be launched and she has a strong emotional connection to them.
- Another favourite product is the Dream Blankets range which were made by mistake, as a prototype for something else, and have become very popular.
And how does she stay so Glam?
At first, she denies she is Glam but then reveals she wore heels into the hospital for the birth of all 4 of her kids. She also indulges in having her nails done and hasn’t given up champagne.
Now that’s a Glam Mummy!
