“Say Goodbye to droopy pants and hello to playground roving fashionistas.”

Monkey & Peanut you had me at your tagline. I am a sucker for great branding and businesses that launch with a solid look and feel. From their packaging to their slogan Monkey & Peanut launched with a bang! Over the last few months I have been able to try out some of these stylish Monkey & Peanut belts and indeed said goodbye to those droopy jeans.

Danielle, founder and designer of Monkey & Peanut, is such a pleasure to be around. Recently I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few markets where Danielle is present, her smile is contagious making it impossible not to want to get to know her better and learn about her dreams for Monkey & Peanut. With her initial launch Danielle has made some changes to her belt design and we are head over heels with her recently launched new and improved custom belt buckles.

It is such a pleasure to share about Danielle’s journey on the blog today and also offer an exclusive coupon code for all of you readers to stop the sag on your toddlers pants. Enjoy!

Floral Toddler Belts

1. Ok, tell me? The name, where did that come from?

Monkey&Peanut…. from my babies! We called Ethan our little monkey from the day we found out he was coming and even had his room in a sock monkey theme. Our sweet Ashlyn always felt “tiny” inside belly… like a little peanut, and those names just stuck! As I started this business, I wanted my kids to be involved somehow and it just made sense!

2. Share a little bit about how your business got started.

To be honest… from a “need”. As I started to play more “dress up” with Ashlyn…. I found that all the pants I had with loops just didn’t fit in the waist. I made my first belt and I got compliments on it wherever we went. I had an itch to start something while on mat leave the first year and so it just happened.

3. What was the biggest challenge for you when getting started?

There have been many challenges along this journey, as I am sure any entrepreneur will tell you! But my biggest challenge when starting… was to actually START. To rid my mind of self doubt and to believe that I can do anything that I want. To take the leap from a steady income and take a risk. The biggest driving force for me has not been to become rich…(although that’d be nice!) It was and still is to see what I can do on my own, to get outside of my comfort zone and to see what other opportunities exist for me.

4. What support did you have to overcome that challenge?

Thank god for family and friends! My 2 very successful brothers (who both own/run multiple business/projects) have inspired me and offered very helpful advice. Along with entrepreneur friends providing insight and support along the way. I really couldn’t have taken the leap without their support.

5. What have you enjoyed the most about running your own business?

Having the outlet to use my creative side. I am a lover of crafting, sewing and just doing anything creative! Also, meeting some amazing women in the industry, I’ve been able to develope new friendships and love the network of small businesses supporting one another!

6. Share a little bit about yourself and what you like to do in your spare time. (if you have that? ha!)

With the little I have… I make the best of it! Health and fitness are very important to me… so I’m still trying to squeeze workouts in during nap time… usually with my phone in one hand! I also love to craft and bake and try to get my kiddos involved with that as much as I can!

7. What are some plans/goals that you have for Monkey & Peanut?

We are hoping to have our custom packaging all set in the next month so we can start to doing more retail. We have also been working tirelessly on developing a custom buckle along with new print designs. As we grow, I’d love to add more products to our store and we have some cool ideas….but you’ll have to wait and see about that!

  • Girls ready before the boys this morning 🤗😉 we are headed to the Bradner May Day parade, a little long weekend tradition introduced by my hubby. What are you all up to today?
  • This moment today could have lasted forever, these sleeping snuggles are few and far between now.
  • It’s our last morning on the island today, starting with some photos on the beds at @sunriseridgeresort (Swipe to see how mine went 🤦🏼‍♀️)
  • We’ve been busy this weekend hopping from one place to the next — excited to share more of where we’ve been on the blog but for now catch the sneak peeks in my stories.
•
Announcing the winner of the @sajewellness (baby line that recently launched) giveaway this weekend too. If you are ever curious who wins, make sure to check out the last comment on any giveaway post ☺️❤️ #partner #sajewellness #sajebaby 📷 @juliechristinephotography
  • When you are trying to act like a fashion blogger and then your child runs through the frame 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ haha!
•
We took a trip on @bcferries today (Sophie discovered it does in fact have food and chairs! Which she announced by yelling to everyone on board 🤦🏼‍♀️) and we are now relaxing for the night at @sunriseridgeresort with a glass of @xoxowines in hand. #extralonglongweekend
  • Everyday feels like Mother's Day when it starts with sunshine, pastries and hot espresso. My mother's day was filled with lots of love, fun in the sun, delicious @nespresso.ca and locally made fresh pastries. Ezra made me the sweetest card that read:
M - Marvellous Mom
O - Outrageously awesome
M - Makes Life Better
... I can't even with that last line, talk about heart melt.
