Instagram icon, Scousebird, or Stephanie Bannister as she’s also known, has become a household name thanks to her no-holds barred approach to life as a determined business woman, mum and blogger. Using social media to document the highs and lows of every day life, buying a house, going on holiday, starting and maintaining two businesses, Steph has gained fans the world over thanks to her honest, frank and 100% Scouse approach.
Following on from her hugely successful blog, Scousebird Probs, Steph launched the Scousebird Shop and Scousebird Salon in Aintree. Due to popularity and a fully-publicised house move to the Crosby area, Steph was quickly on the look out for new premises, and where better to relaunch than on her own doorstep in L23.
Steph explained:” I wanted to get involved with my local community. After having such a successful stall at the Crosby and Waterloo food and drink festival I decided to relocate the whole operation here.”
The Scousebird Shop stocks loads of what Steph calls ‘ Fancy Goods’. We’re talking bath bombs, greetings cards, notebooks, make up brushes, mugs, coasters, clothing, keyrings and all things scouse. From unicorn slippers to the latest Owen Drew Candles and super sparkly llama note books, the brand new Moor Lane gift boutique has everything a Scouse Bird should own.
Opened officially on Saturday 2nd February 2019 by none other than LFC legend, Jamie Carragher, the shop is joined, next door but one, by the Scousebird Salon. Staffed by possibly the friendliest and talented team, you can get your lashes, nails, make up and hair done, all under one roof. There’s also a whole list of holistic type therapy on offer too.
In true Scousebird tradition, the shop and salon are decked out in bright colours, patterns and feature Scousebirds instantly recognisable Instagram logo above the doors. Asked about how the new ventures had been received by the local community, Steph said: “We’ve been welcomed with open arms and it feels really good to bring the village back to life.”
