Esteem – No Pause
Esteem – No Pause is a solution clothing brand providing a solution to excessive perspiration. Founded in 2015 by Jane Hallam, a menopausal woman who was at the time experiencing debilitating and uncomfortable menopausal night sweats, and unwilling to wear the existing old fashioned designs made in fabrics that would not deal with the volume of perspiration. Desperate to have a comfortable night’s sleep Jane sought out fabrics and designs that she wanted to wear herself as well as being effective.
All Esteem – No Pause clothing is designed in Britain with the majority of clothing also made in Britain, bar a new long line knicker which is manufactured by a small family firm in Portugal to ensure that the pricing is accessible to customers. As a small self-funding business, we keep manufacturing numbers low. Fabric is made in Italy using a unique honeycomb structure which allows air to circulate making it effective at wicking perspiration away from the body, regulating body temperature and being quick drying.
Prize description: The winner will receive a vest in a cheery fuchsia colour which has adjustable bra straps and a hidden bra shelf. This item can be worn flexibly as lingerie, daywear, nightwear, loungewear, exercise wear and on holiday, especially in humid climates.
At Lavandi all our products are:
- Zero Plastic
- Zero Palm Oil
- Zero Waste
- 100% Natural
First-hand experiences and a belief in the need for zero plastic, zero palm oil, natural, and cruelty-free products lead Gavin Erlam and Matthew Wareing to create Lavandi Body and Nature. This is our story. Gavin is a keen sailor and scuba diver, and Matthew has spent over a decade in administration working towards the fight against cancer.
Meeting up with friends for a Sunday lunch, the conversation turned to Gavin's last sailing holiday. He spoke about the only thing that had really stuck with him on this trip: the amount of plastic debris in all the ports he had moored up in. The conversation moved on to single-use plastics and the need to stop using them before it is too late. Soaps, shampoos and cosmetics seemed to be an area that most people bought single-use or non-recyclable plastic. At this point, Matthew chipped in about the number of harmful chemicals there are in some soaps, shampoos and cosmetics. The pair decided that instead of waiting for
someone to do something, they would... and so Lavandi Body and Nature was born. At Lavandi everything starts with 'But what if we could' and ends with 'Luxury should not cost the earth'.
At Lavandi, we have seen the need for change and have created a range of products that are all-natural. Made with a carefully curated combination of oils, butters, botanicals, clays and salts. Our promise is that they are all completely free of harmful chemicals.
Enjoy the luxury Lavandi products, safe in the knowledge you are not harming yourself or the planet.

As you may know, Calla Shoes is a female-led online footwear brand creating stylish, comfortable shoes for women with bunions, or anyone seeking comfort. The company was founded in 2016 by Jennifer Bailey, a fashion lover and bunion sufferer, who was frustrated at not being able to find beautiful shoes which also fit her feet. Jennifer believed that style and comfort should not be mutually exclusive, and this is reflected in the range of shoes which she sells at Calla, which combine stylistic elements with comfort features to create the ultimate shoe experience.
All Calla shoes are handcrafted in small, family-run factories in Portugal, out of soft luxurious materials. Other comfort elements include cushioned, arch support insoles, wide toe boxes, non-slip soles, and hidden stretch panels, all to ensure that bunions are comforted and concealed.
Calla Shoes sells its collection heels, flats, boots, and sandals worldwide, and is loved by customers in 50+ countries.
Prize description: The winner will receive a beautiful pair of shoes of their choice currently available on the Calla website.
