Hello world!

Laura

We’re so excited to launch Little Lalang! It’s been a whirlwind of a journey. I never envisioned stepping into the world of entrepreneurship/business, and the learning curve is STEEP. We've had so many lovely fellow small business owners help us with advice and recommendations - a special shout out to Eunice from Nappy Nook, Mel from Clothe in Love, Tegan from Big Snug, Jade from Baby and Belle, Linxin from My Story Treasury and Steph from A Child's Hood! (These ladies are all wonderful mums and businesswomen in their own right, and we strongly recommend shopping at their stores!) Of course, we're...
