Happy Mugs Monday, Boss Babes! I hope your weekend included all of the following: pizza, great friends, & good vibes. Speaking of the good kind of vibes, we want to introduce you to Lesley Pocklington of Swell Made Co. She’s an Ontario-based designer and Boss Mom. You’ll love the black, white, & gold designs in her online shop— I’ve had her ‘coffee’ keychain tag on my keys for over a year now (as if I ever needed a reminder to pick up some caffeine). ;) I’m so glad that the magic of Instagram brought us together right around the time that we launched Boss Babe Club last summer and have loved collaborating with Lesley on giveaways & content ever since. Enjoy seeing Ontario through Lesley’s eyes & I hope that you find her list of favorites fun to read. Have fun getting to know her & have a fab day! Stay boss. xx -G
