Kirsty is a truly beautiful soul who embraces life & everything it throws at her, whilst truly wanting to make the world a better place. She is a friend; wife; mum yoga instructor; & has recently added business owner to her CV!
I went to school with Kirsty & did dancing with her during this time, so we have a little bit of history & I know how beautiful her heart is & that she truly just wants the best for everyone. I may not have children of my own, but I know that if I did then I would want to support My Little Loves. The clothing looks absolutely amazing & is proper little kids clothing, whilst still looking extremely comfortable & fashionable.
When I was thinking about who I wanted to chat to next for my blog, Kirsty immediately popped to mind. Her Facebook page is here, & Instagram here. You can read on to find out a little more about this amazing woman:
Your name: Kirsty Von Fintel
Name of your business: My Little Loves
When did you start: I started up my business in about February this year , and we have just launched our first items this month!
Why did you start: I have had a passion for hemp for some time , it is the oldest domesticated crops known to man and has been used for textiles cordage and paper for thousands of years . I’m passionate about our environment and the state it is in , and what we can do to help!
Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be used for thousands of products . For clothing the fibers and stalks of the Hemp plant is used . Along with my passion for Hemp I have a passion for clothing and since recently having my son my interests turned to baby and kids wear . I found it so hard to find natural Fibre items for him in fun comfortable styles . A lot of clothing you find now is impractical and covered in cartoon characters . There are obviously exceptions but this sparked an idea for me and I rolled with it . It has been a really fun learning experience as this is not my expertise at all!
What did you do before this: I am a yoga teacher and was teaching daily classes , along with studying to be a nutritionist.
Products you have: We have clothing for babes and older kids up to age 6 . Our focus right now is clothing but are we are looking at some other ideas, and possibly some items for mamas in the near future!
Mottos you live by: “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” “Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.” “Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. – Brene Brown
Any other info you want to add: Do what makes your heart flutter , even if you don’t know what your doing , do it anyway . That is how we learn , how we grow . Take chances , take risks and put your heart out there . You don’t want to look back and wish you had tried that one thing you were to scared to do . Trust the process❤️
Kirst, I am so so proud of you for following your dreams & for encouraging us all to live a better life. Your kids clothing looks absolutely adorable & I know that all of “Aunty Meg’s” children will be getting these going forward.
Please contact her directly via any of her social media channels to place your orders. She delivers throughout South Africa & I can guarantee that your kids will be super comfy & cute in these designs.
I am a fun-loving, sometimes crazy, 30-year-old that lives every moment as it comes... Unfortunately I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2004.
This is about embracing my inner child; creating a bit of DIY; learning to love myself again; & not caring so much about fitting with society's expectations.
I also want to showcase the amazing talent that we have in South Africa & support local wherever possible.
