A beautiful online children’s boutique, based in the gorgeous Miami Beach of Florida – say hello to Dreams of Cuteness. Not only is the shop filled with a cute ensemble of carefully selected, quality kids’ items, the team behind this business has a heart of gold – operating a charitable movement with a mission to help families in need. We had the privilege of having a chat with the lovely Bianca, curator of Dreams of Cuteness and a #supermama of three, to find out more about her work and the meaning behind her unique Bebox product. Come along for a wander into her journey!
How did the name 'Dreams of Cuteness' come about? Is there a special meaning behind it?
Everyone has something in life that they cherish and hold dear to their hearts – something that keeps their minds buzzing (sometimes even appearing in their dreams). Cuteness has always been one of those special things for me. When thinking of a name for my business, ‘Dreams of Cuteness’ was what immediately popped into mind, as I envisioned this boutique to be a dream of all things cute literally coming to life.
It's so unique how Dreams of Cuteness is both a baby/kids boutique as well as a charitable business! Could you please tell us a bit about Bebox and how it works?
The ‘Bebox’ is at the heart of Dreams of Cuteness. Our business launched in 2015 with this one product. I came up with the idea after reading Blake Mycoskie’s book, Start Something That Matters, which speaks of socially conscious entrepreneurship and the idea of having a greater purpose than solely earning profit. Bebox is basically an all-inclusive gift box for new babies that’s filled with carefully selected baby essentials. When one is purchased, we give another to a family in need. We're so proud of the help we can give to struggling families. The positive feedback we receive from our customers has been a constant source of encouragement and reminder to us that there are other like-minded people in the world who are willing to pour out their hearts and make a difference. We're glad our Bebox provides them with an easy option to do the good that their hearts desire.
What were some of the highlights of running such a meaningful movement?
The major highlight is getting to meet the families who receive the gifted Beboxes – families, each shaped by a story made of varying hardships and challenges. Through our Beboxes, we not only give these families material items that they need, but are also able to provide them with love and emotional support. We truly believe such support will help make a difference in their lives (no matter how big or little the impact may be).
Also, as a mother, I make sure to take my three children along with me when distributing the gifts. It fills me with joy to see them become enlightened with happiness as they learn and experience the act of giving. I really hope that through this movement, I’ll be able to instill the values of giving to my little ones, and help them see the worth in being a kind and helpful individual to others.
How would you say Huxbaby adds to your business? What are your current top 3 picks from the Huxbaby collection?
Our business has grown over the years, starting with the one (Bebox) product to becoming a full baby boutique that consists of what we consider to be the best brands currently available in the market. Huxbaby adds to our business by bringing a cool, modern style that parents and children both appreciate. We love the minimalist look and concept; plus, there’s always an element of cuteness added with the Hux bear, bunny, cat, and other loveable characters Huxbaby creates. Picking favorites is hard because we love the recent 'Spaceluxe' collection so much. The ‘hux cat knit cardi’ is definitely a standout – I, honestly, wish it came in my size too! Also, the ‘splash bear’ had me at hello; it’s amazing both as a sweatshirt and tee, as well as a romper. The ‘chambray dress’ is another favorite – it has such a simple, yet beautiful silhouette.
Was there anything you'd like to say to your customers and our Hux Readers?
To our customers, I'd like to say that every good thing we do is because of you. Without your support, none of the awesome works and milestones we’ve reached and achieved would’ve been possible. We love what we do and hope our passion reflects in every detail of our business. Although we’re an online shop, we love connecting with you through Instagram, and appreciate being even the tiniest part of your little ones’ lives.
To the Hux Readers, the fact that you’re reading this feature shows you care about the business you buy from (we believe this is so important). Everyone is doing something different; find and support the businesses you feel connected to. And, of course, we really hope you enjoyed learning more about us through this opportunity!
