I think we can all agree that Taliah is one of the most interesting women in the world. The 22-year-old creator of the wildly popular blog, ModernMummyShop, started her blog when she was 19 years old and has never looked back. While she’s been featured in some pretty epic celebrity magazines, she is most famous for co-creating, with her husband, Rob, the Modern Mum Shop. The blog and its many products have been featured on countless TV shows and made international headlines; all because of one incredible woman and her tireless advocacy for women.
Rob And Taliah’s Early Lives
Rob and Taliah were both born and raised in London, and they tied the knot when they were both 20 years old. Because they were both working in digital marketing and product development, they decided to create their own blog to connect with and inspire other women. They had always been close friends, and since Rob had worked for a female-run production company, he also knew what it was like to be in the trenches with gals.
Their Amazing Journey
In 2013, they started the blog, ModernMummyShop, and it has since gone viral, amassing over 500K followers on Instagram alone and becoming one of the UK’s most popular fashion blogs. It’s main focus is to inspire women to love themselves, and we couldn’t agree more. In fact, some of the products they sell, such as the bikini bodysuits and crop tops that they adore, are a direct result of the success of their blog. It all started with a single post in January 2013, where they revealed their plans to travel to Bali with their friends, Elle and Poppy, to celebrate Elle’s birthday. They were inspired by Elle’s adventurous spirit and wanted to bring a little bit of that to their own life. So they decided to do something they had never done before – they dropped their guards and let their hair down in an extremely adventurous and liberating way. It was an experiment that turned into one of the most iconic moments of their blog, and it inspired them to create a line of hair accessories featuring tiny gold skulls.
This wasn’t the first time they had tried to experiment with their hair; in 2011, they had dyed their hair orange, purple and red, and in 2012, they had created a hair-dyeing challenge, where they would dye their hair a different color every two weeks. These were simply experiments to see what would happen, and although they were fun to try, they never stuck. This time, however, was different. This time, they decided to see how long they could keep their hair. And it was love at first sight when they saw how vibrant and beautiful their hair looked. They instantly knew this was going to be a permanent change and that they had found their calling. The success of this blog experiment led to them creating the Modern Mum Shop, a platform where they could combine their interests in fashion, beauty and food, and ultimately, inspire other women to embrace their own individuality and express it through fashion and beauty. And that’s exactly what they do.
The Amazing Blog
Whether you have a mother, sister, aunt or close friend who would love to dress like a princess for Halloween, you can bet that they’ll be inspired by Taliah. The blog is full of gorgeous outfits and lifestyle vlogs that will make any fashion-loving mother proud – and that’s exactly what happened when the Modern Mum Shop was featured on Vogue’s blog, The Coveteur. When Rob and Taliah were in The Coveteur’s offices in London, the blogger came across their blog and was so inspired by their style that she decided to feature them on her blog. Since then, the blog has been featured on various high profile websites and printed in more than 20 magazines, including Vogue, Elle, Glamour and Hello!, which is truly an amazing achievement for two young designers who started out of purely academic interests.
Rob And Taliah’s Marriage And Family
As we mentioned, Rob and Taliah were married in 2013 and now have a three-year-old son, Milo. They also have a daughter, Elle, who will be two in December. Their life couldn’t be more perfect, and they are still constantly dreaming of having another baby. They credit their love for fashion, beauty and travel to their success – all things that they document on their blog. And what’s more is that they also credit their family for their drive and dedication to creating a successful company.
“I want to be a role model for my son,” Taliah said. “I want him to look up to me and know that being a good person is important. Fashion isn’t just about clothes; it’s about individuality, self-expression and confidence. So, for Milo’s sake, we’ll always be exploring, trying new things and being our best selves. And, as long as we keep having fun, I know we’ll keep succeeding.”
While we’re glad that they’ve found such success, it’s important to remember that this wasn’t always the case. In an interview with Vogue, Rob explained that they had had to battle issues of trust and financial stability at the outset of their company. This was because they had chosen to go it alone, without the help of a bank or formal investors. They knew that having some kind of safeguard in place would have helped them establish their business and access the funds they needed. But, because of the nature of their business, they didn’t want to be too restrictive with this, as they wanted to be as open and accessible to clients as possible.
If you’re thinking about starting your own business, it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re not just creating a business model that’s already been done by someone else. There are many pitfalls that you can fall into, and you want to be sure that you’re not making them. One of the best things that you can do for yourself and your business is to get a mentor. Having someone who has been where you are and who can offer advice and guidance is invaluable. And don’t be afraid to ask for help; there are plenty of people who will be more than happy to offer assistance. It’s important to remember that, while you may be a genius inside the office, out in the field, you may not be so awesome.
