The Story

It's been a long (okay so not thaaaat long) and windy road to the Ms Marnie of today - here's the wee story about the start of this biz (formerly Eskimo Nell)

It all started one fateful night, over a bottle of red – it was one of those “where have you been all my life” moments often reserved for cheesy romance movies.

Two mamas, who both understood the importance of sisterhood, the value of a village (even if our village was only two people) & the miracle of a mama friend dropping round with the world's best blueberry chia muffin.

I had designed a t-shirt (the original Queen tank) for all my Mama friends to celebrate surviving the first year of motherhood and after a few glasses of wine my gal Ash and I were like "we should totes start an online store and sell these bad boys".

{Below - actual depiction of decision making tactics at the time}

We even had a mantra:

This is more than a just another tee shirt brand. It is our contribution to the amazing global mamahood and Girl Power movement!

It is a beacon of light in between soggy nappies, saggy boobies and sleepless nights.

Most importantly, Eskimo Nell is a reminder that we are all badass bitches who can shine as bright as we like, with no fs given.

And for the next year we just flew by the seat of our pants and whaddaya know the message of Eskimo Nell really resonated with women all over the world.
Just after our first biz birthday (and as I was nearing the birth of wee Mackie Moo) Ash and her husband had a super exciting opportunity to buy another business and so Eskimo Nell became a one-woman-show.
The last year has been the hardest, craziest, most roller-coastery of my life but each and every day I chat to babes like you and think YASSS QUEENS LESSSSS DO THIS! 


And now three years later and i've made the big leap to rebrand Eskimo Nell to 

Ms Marnie

Ms Marnie was my "fashion brand" name all through high-school when I used to spend every weekend sewing my next crazy creation to wear out to parties, school balls or lets face it just down to the supermarket.

2019 was a huge year for me, figuring out who the F I am, healing my relationship with my Mum and stepping into my own story. This, coupled with it being brought to my attention that Eskimo is actually a derogatory name for the Inuit people of Northern America and it just felt so right to close the chapter on Eskimo Nell and re-birth as Ms Marnie.

So babes, thanks for coming along on the journey hehe it's one hell of a ride
