Honestly, wearing one of these fantastic shower caps makes you feel like a real bathing belle!

Lavender’s new

Lavender’s blue, dilly, dilly, lavender’s green When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen A colour; a plant; a scent. The healing properties of lavender have been well known for thousands of years. Used to treat a range of ailments such as insomnia, depression, migraines and joint pains, the aroma of lavender has a relaxing effect on the body as well as the mind and soul. A versatile plant, lavender has many culinary uses and was a particular favourite of Queen Elizabeth I who was partial to lavender conserve at breakfast time. Lavender plants are an excellent way of attracting butterflies and bees in to the garden.

Dilly Daydream are honoured to have received a business boost from TV Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis.

On Sunday 10th March we tweeted Theo about our gorgeous shower caps during ‘Small Business Sunday’, an initiative set up by Theo that runs weekly on Twitter and were thrilled to discover the next evening that we had been selected as one of his 6 winners. All slightly overwhelming, but very very exciting.

Big Cans, Big Hair, Small Shower Caps

So much has been happening recently that I don't know where to start.

Last month I was lucky to be asked to design some promotional hats for Batiste who were launching their new XXL Volume spray. The idea was to dress their new cans with mini shower caps (think Innocent Smoothies – www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/bigknit). The cans were sent as party invitations to various beauty media and beauty bloggers inviting them to the Batiste launch party at Bungalow 8 in London. Guests were greeted with delicious cocktails and a beautifully decorated bar filled with bottles of the brand new Batiste range, all decked with little shower caps.

The party goers enjoyed an evening listening to gorgeous Paloma Faith (www.palomafaith.com), who was dressed in a fabulous black and white evening gown (which has given me ideas for my next shower cap design) and were each given a fantastic goody bag which, amongst others, included a selection of the new Bastiste range, Paloma Faith's brand new debut album, and a Dilly Daydream shower cap – a must for anyone who uses dry shampoo and doesn't want to wash their hair every day.

Thank you to Charley and Jackie at JWPR, Batiste and all of you who told me they loved their shower caps. I'm so pleased they went down a storm!

Crowning Glory

Last year I was fortunate enough to meet Guru Kaur, a very special lady who gave me encouragement and guidance just when I needed it. She’s an inspirational individual who helped me convey my beliefs that shower caps aren’t just a practical item that we wear when hidden away in the bathroom, but are instead things of beauty that make you feel proud of your inner beauty.

There is a general feeling that shower caps are seen as an embarrassing item to wear. To change this perception, I created a brand new website with the theme of pampering and luxury, and introduced more new luxurious shower cap designs. And through all the fantastic customer feedback I’ve had, I now know people who wear their Dilly Daydream shower caps out and about – at spa weekends, on cruises, for shows and events, and when swimming.

Guru Kaur thought my story was inspirational to other busy women in the workplace, and so she spent some time talking to me to understand how my business came about, how I made it what it is today and where I want to take it in the future.

You can hear the interview here.

Dream Come True

Whilst on the subject of press coverage, the Surrey Advertiser interviewed me to find out how my business came about. They were particularly interested in the idea of people dusting down their sewing machines and being creative, especially at a time when we’ve all been tightening our belts. They liked the story of a mum creating a business that worked round her young children. There are a lot of us out there!

They published this really lovely feature on me, and as a result I had numerous emails from fellow mums who were genuinely impressed with my story. Thank you all for your kind words!
