I love businesses that start organically, and from the heart and that is exactly where Run Riot came from.
Started by Kellie Gibson last year this active wear brand has grown enormously due to its loyal supporters.
Kellie says running riot was how she described her kids when they would just take off and run wild and free, not taking life too seriously and just being in the moment. Kids run with an uninhibited freedom and lack of judgement and she wanted to encapsulate that into her sports headwear brand.
Run Riot was born from the notion of running free like a child, and who doesn’t want that feeling? Best of all, this is a brand that can be enjoyed by the whole family while you all RUN RIOT!
If you would like to help your family Run Riot then get in contact today:

Every so often you come across great products that actually make a big difference to your life and that’s exactly what you get with Kate Davis and KissesFromKate. Kate is a local, independent LipSence, SeneGene Skincare and Makeup distributor.
Kate tells me one of the things that drew her to the products were the fact that they are lead free, wax free, gluten free, contain no animal by-products and aren’t tested on animals. How amazing is that?
You know what else gives Kate credit in my book? The only reason she started selling the products in the first place is because she fell so in love with them when she was using them just for personal use. I love when people just find a passion for something because it actually works for them.
Kate says the helping women (and men!) feel better about themselves in their own skin in what keeps her passionate about the range of SeneGence products.
Check out KissesFromKate today because you won’t regret it (plus it makes Christmas shopping SUPER easy!)

One of my absolute favourite finds this year was Hair By Hair! Owned and operated by Emma Hair it is a fantastic salon that makes you feel good and most importantly welcome.
Emma works alongside Briana & Dianne and can take care of the whole family. They do cuts, colours and perms (not often but they can do it!). Extensions as well as bridal and event hair.
The whole team are highly trained in De Lorenzo products which are an Australian Family owned and operated Company. Their products are high quality, vegan, organic where possible, made and tested in Australia for our harsh climate
Hair By Hair opened in February 2006, with just Emma and her husband (who helped where he could!) Emma says hairdressing was always her passion and took a chance on starting a new business designed to focus less on busy appointment books and more on making clients feel good.
The thing that sets Hair By Hair apart is that they always offer real customer service, and take genuine pride in making people feel special.
It’s pretty simple Emma says just be genuine and take the time to listen. It seems to be working 14 years after starting her business and she has an incredibly loyal client network.
Hair By Hair works almost exclusively off word of mouth. Emma says it’s so rewarding when you meet a new client and they’re booked in because someone has told them how great Hair By Hair is!
Hair By Hair prides itself on being the type of business that means their staff can skip out to that important school assembly and get to weekend sport without feeling guilty. Striking a work/Life balance is so important (and ever changing) and Emma proudly says that she’s created a workplace which embraces the balance.
