2. Shhhowercap (@shhhowercap)
Jacquelyn De Jesu, the founder of Shhhowercap, thought that she was all alone in her frustrations with showercaps until she started talking to other women and realized that they, too, had the same frustrations. On her search for the perfect showercap, she found neither functionality nor beauty. However, being the innovative and imaginative woman that she is, she set out to recreate the showercap. Instead of settling, she re-imagined. 100% waterproof, fashion-forward silhouette, machine washable, built to last. Shop now.
3. Mer Sea & Co. (@merseaco)
After sending her 4th child to school full-time, Lina Dickinson was feeling a bit restless. She mentioned in an article on simplicityintheheartland.com that entering the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom is a difficult task and that it is easy to feel irrelevant in the world of business. Instead of succumbing to these negative thoughts, Lina (and Melanie) created a company that is inspired by the tranquility and universal pleasures of the ocean. Their products aim to make women feel comfortable, cozy and secure, and include timeless pieces that will last. Experience their luxurious products here.
