About Lorraine and Jennie

The ladies behind the brand, Lorraine and Jennie, both have impressive careers in PR, TV and Marketing. They met in February 2011 after they both migrated to Australia with their families from England. Buggybuddys was launched by the mums in July 2011. The go-to website for West Australian parents has grown at a phenomenal rate since its inception.

Lorraine and Jennie had a close network of friends and family back in the UK and upon arriving in Perth, they had to start all over again, building new friendships. They met many other parents in the same boat and from that, the idea of Buggybuddys was born! Many years later, the Buggybuddys brand is well established and trusted amongst families and businesses in Perth.

Lorraine  also owns Flow Hot Yoga and Pilates Studio in Wangara and Jennie has paid tribute to her love of cats and nails and has published three further websites, Ragdoll Cats World, Maine Coon Cats World and I Want Those Nails!
