An interview with... Sugar Tits Founders!

We absolutely adore Sugar Tits! Tell us a bit more about how you got started…and the name of course! 

We’ve both always been creative people and have never been comfortable in generic jobs. After all we both wanted to be actresses. We looked at what we love –  eating, fashion, glitter…. Dolly Parton and worked out what we could do with it that would make us some dollar while we waited for Hollywood to come calling. The business didn’t happen overnight and it took us awhile to refine but that was pretty much the fundamental motivation behind the brand.

We were previously called the ‘unhampered girls’ …. we started off selling traditional hampers to friends, family & cooperate businesses. But we soon got bored of making jam and completely revamped the business to make it more ‘us’.

I came up with the name ‘Sugar Tits’ as a joke… and Verity absolutely loved it… (my mum/companies house… didn’t so much).

Dr.Lipp is the only lip balm I have tried that lasts for so long!

What’s your best piece of advice for someone looking to take the first step in launching a new career?

Use social media to your advantage- we wouldn’t have a business without the power of Instagram!

Definitely do things for free at first because that’s how you build your network and make invaluable contacts. But there has to come a point when you say no and if someone won’t pay you or they think you’re asking too much for a service or product then walk away because they aren’t your target customer.

Being super busy founders of Sugar Tits, is it hard to find time for yourselves and live a healthy lifestyle?
Yes, it’s hard to stay healthy when you work such long hours in a kitchen surrounded by sugar (especially when your both greedy)!  Although our products no longer tempt us AS MUCH since we have eaten so much of it!

What’s your fave way to keep a healthy lifestyle?
We drink so much water throughout the day whilst working and we are constantly on our feet moving!  (But unfortunately both tend to eat a whole lot of carbs & cheese!)

How do you balance such a hectic schedule?
It’s super tough. We do not have set hours so it’s incredibly hard to arrange plans when we never know what time we will be finished. But we do tend to keep weekends free to spend with friends and family.

What music do you have blasting in the office?
Dolly Parton 😉

What’s a day in the life like for you?
Full of pink food dye, glitter, sometimes tears…. sometimes laughter 🙈

What beauty products can you not live without? 
Our new obsession is Glossier! Love the products & the aesthetics of the brand.

What do you like about Dr.Lipp’s 100% multi-use products?
It is incredible- I first bought Dr.Lipp on the plane a few years back and have never gone back. It’s the only lip balm I have tried that lasts for so long! We have the aircon/ heating on all day so this lip balm saves us from dry sore lips.

What does the future hold in store for Sugar Tits?
We would absolutely love to open a Sugar Tits cafe!
