Tigerlilly Quinn: Giveaway with Amy and Ivor

Giveaway with Amy and Ivor


If you follow me over on Instagram you will have already seen I am pretty smitten with these little moccasins. Alice first got in touch with me a few weeks back about her business Amy and Ivor, I was so pleased to see a UK seller of children's moccasins as I had searched and failed to find one back when Wilf was first starting to walk. It turns out that Alice had done the same when looking for some for her kiddos and struggling to find any decided to make her own!

Alice was kind enough to send Wilf two little pairs of his own and I can confirm the quality is fantastic. Plus Wilf loves them and calls them his 'tippy tappy's' and pretends to be an elf (to much Ben and Holly maybe? We love that show).

I'm pleased to say Alice has also been kind enough to offer one Tigerlilly Quinn reader a pair of their own. All you need to do is enter some/all of the below and good luck! xo

This is a UK only giveaway

I don't have a child and have had the same quandary. When I ran Tenderfoot I didn't earn an income for almost 3 years and was solely supported by my husband. Up until moving to the U.K. I always worked and paid my own bills and rent. So you can imagine I found it quite difficult to all of a sudden have to rely on someone else! I had to remind myself almost daily that although I'm being supported by my husband that doesn't make me less of a feminist. I mean our roles in our relationship other than monetary gain are absolutely equal. I feel sometimes women are too hard on themselves if they enjoy stereotypically lady type stuff like baking, making or even being a stay-at-home mum. The whole point of feminism is to be able to make whatever choice you find suitable for you and be respected for it just like a man would be.

So interesting! If you ever have time (!!) to read it, How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran is an amaaaazing book on feminism and is super interesting and funny too.xxx

wow - thank the lordy for people like you is all i can say - for me - being a feminist = 'dont be shitty and judgemental about other women and thier choices' i have people still say to me ' still doing nothing are you?" yeah just you know staying home looking after my disabled 17 year old - yeah " and sadly a lot of those people are women.

Thanks Fritha, what kind words. It was really lovely to meet you in person too. It wonder whether what the panel meant was "is mummy blogging a feminist act" which would have been a more interesting discussion to my mind than can you be both.

Amy Tilston said...

Sounds like it was a very interesting and inspiring day! :)

Maxine Kerley said...

Hi hun, what a great blog post. I didn't even know something like Blogfest existed...but I do now. It sounds like you had a great time. Very insightful. xx

Kelly Rae said...

I love that Medela made it happen for you :) I'm hoping I can get to attend a blog fest or blog conference sometime in the future. xo

A great post Fritha. I wasn't at BlogFest but to me I don't particularly believe in Feminism per say but in equality. And I certainly would never ever think of being a Mummy as derogatory, it is most definitely the best thing I have ever done. I had a successful career, but I have chosen to put that on hold while my children are young. That's MY choice. x

Adele Jarrett-Kerr said...

Fab post. Thanks for quoting me. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you, including sitting next to you for that infuriating session! I am most tempted by that book your mum's written a chapter of...

fritha strickland said...

sorry I should have stated, UK only this time unfortunately x

Ella Tabb said...

It was a lovely day, and lovely as always to see you.

sarahhillwheeler said...

Agree it was a fantastic day. For me too, feminism is about choice. At times I felt the feminism debate was a bit like watching a car crash in slow motion. Regardless of my own views, I found it sad that people felt that they had to justify their own personal choices so strongly....it didn;t feel very empathetic or supportive!

helloitsgemma said...

good to see you, am glad you enjoyed the day - love that photo of you. it's been said before that session was such a missed opportunity and seemed to set up to annoy and then everyone seemed surprised when it did. For me Jo Brand totally won it back.

Mummy Glitzer said...

I agree with you re Lisa's comments from the balcony. I was sat up there as well and there were a number of raised hands when people downstairs got the chance to interact and it felt like those upstairs were ignored so they felt they had no choice but to shout. Over all it was a brilliant day and that session was poorly timed and, dare I say, badly chaired. I have since found the resulting discussions interesting.


Like others have said, Jo Brand won it back.

Mummy Glitzer said...

Also, lovely to spend some time with you and Adele again! x
