When I had my first blog, I decided that my ‘niche’ was promoting small businesses; I loved it, specifically hunting out clothes shops because back then, my biggest love was fashion.

Fast forward a few years and I’ve managed to expand my interest wider than just small business fashion boutiques. when I rejoined Twitter, I was ‘recommended’ to follow Dorkface – aka the lovely Jemma –  and I am so glad I did!

I watched as Jemma created more and more adorable stuff for her site and I purchased a big order not so long ago – she does the cutest stickers and prints , and was absolutely thrilled a few weeks ago when she asked if she could send some items for review!

I’ve just found a new place which I’ll be moving in to next month, so I can’t wait to get some adorable prints framed up – including these beautiful few from Jemma – I really want more pictures on my wall, ideally a mix between my travel photos and motivational quotes in Jemma’s adorable illustrative style!

Happily, the Dorkface shop doesn’t just stop at prints – it covers a huge wealth of things – you can have bespoke prints made, there are these super cute book marks,

cool A F key rings…

and the cutest cards for your loved ones on their buff-days!

I’m so glad I started following Jemma, and that my passion for supporting small businesses has been completely reignited. I can’t wait to treat my friends to adorable bits and pieces from Jemma’s Etsy shop!

Aren’t these items just so perfect?


I was sent these items for review by Jemma, as always, this is my completely honest opinion.

    I’m a huge fan of Jemma, she is very talented and down to earth, I’m also a big supporter of small businesses! I loved this post and I’m sure Jemma will be chuffed to bits with it too! <3 <3

    How cute is your photography right here?! You’ve blown me away by making Jemma’s already adorable products look even better! She really does have some lovely things in her store – I get such a buzz out of purchasing from small businesses as well because you know that you’re making an incredibly important contribution to someone’s livelihood! The self care stickers are something that I’m very tempted to invest in just as a little reminder! The pink dress print is stunning too, I’m feeling a shopping spree coming on…

      Abbey Louisa Rose, your comments always make my day! One of my favourite sayings is “when you buy from a small business you’re not helping a CEO buy their third holiday home, you’re helping someone live their dream” and I think that’s so true – its such a lovely feeling and especially when you get such cute items like Jemma’s as the end result!

    Awh I didn’t realise Jemma sold that Peter Pan bookmark! I have that quote tattooed 🙂 So I would love that bookmark! I’ve purchased a few bits from Jemma before and I love supporting small businesses!

      It’s such a lovely bookmark isn’t it? I mix it up between my Kindle and paperbacks so it’ll definitely come in handy – what a cool quote for a tattoo!

    I love that your original niche was promoting small businesses, I didn’t know that but that’s so lovely! I love all of Jemma’s products, and have ordered a few lovely bits for myself from time to time! Hopefully I will have a house with a blogging room one day (big dreams, haha) so that I can fill it with Jemma’s lovely creations! Also, how cute are those cards?!
