Woman in Progress: Laura Lea from Laura Lea Design

Our latest Woman in Progress is Laura Lea from Laura Lea Design.  Laura founded her Leytonstone boutique three years ago, and in that time her business has gone from strength to strength.  Laura's shop stocks fantastic artists and designers whose work can't be found on the high street (it's a must-go place for great gifts) and Laura also organises pop-up exhibitions around London to expose the artists and designers she represents to new audiences.   We're delighted she's taken the time to answer our questions.

Our second guest Woman in Progress is children's author Jasmine Richards.  Not only is Jas the mum to two ridiculously cute children, but her third novel, Keeper of Myths, comes out this week.  Writing a novel, let alone more than one, let alone getting them published is such an achievement, and quite frankly it makes me a little bit jealous.
