Red carpet handbags

These beautiful handbags from Maisha popped onto my radar recently. Perfect for putting on the glitz….


Lolli lolli Lollipops Oh La La…..the french are coming

Lottie and I went along to Lollipops preview in Shoreditch East London recently for a nose around. I came across this Parision fashion and accessories brand years ago on holiday to Marbella. Then I bought a beautiful candy pink handbag (very now) and I fought over the last pair of silver mules with my friend Irene and due to some really dirty tricks she risked over 30 years of friendship when she surreptitiously bought the mules from under my very put out nose! Lollipops in Marbella closed down, I...


A little bag of something

BURBERRY SS12 Just a taster….. Aren’t these clutch bags from Burberry gorgeous Ruby  


GUESS what!

Guess I popped into the Guess open event this weekend and spurned on by rumours of cold weather I came across this gorgeous gloves which must be purchased. With the hands covered I then got to thinking I will need something to put in the hands and saw this lovely Covent Garden tote bag in leopard print…….and GUESS what…………it has to be purchased too……… Sticking to the hand theme, I even got my nails done free at the event in a beautiful burgandy colour, so my hands are lovely...


Lets all go buy milk…….

Lulu Guinness If like me you have always coveted Lulu Guinness’s red lips bags but cannot afford the price tag. Now you can… the shape of her snappy new shopping tote which comes in at a great £35 price tag. You can fold it up into the red lip shape to fool all your friends and enemies into thinking you have bought the real thing before unfurling it to put the groceries in. Never has going to the shops for toilet roll and milk looked so stylish. Ideal Christmas...

Down Mexico way

I went to Mexico once a few years ago and travelled all around it. It was brilliant and what I loved most about it was the colour and vibrancy and lushness of the imagery. Now I did get slightly weary of seeing pictures and images of Frido Kahlo literally everywhere and if it wasn’t Frido staring woefully at me, it was statues of Our Lady of Guadaloupe and if it wasn’t those two ladies looking wisftul it was scenes of skeletons (yes you heard me), skeletons having a whale...


Where I receive a lovely surprise

I came home from work the other day and saw a strange looking bulky black envelope sitting in my hall! It didn’t look like a bill or a savage demand from the Inland Revenue or even a debt collector so I opened it and out popped a beautiful Smythson (don’t you know!) notebook from the girls at Isabella Oliver saying thanks for supporting them! Now isn’t that nice?I thought so too. As it happens, they have introduced handbags this season to accompany their belts and scarves, and very nice...


Pom-Pom Par-tay!

How great is this photo of Nicki Minaj sitting akin to Anna Wintour at Carolina Herrera the SS12 show? Illustrating a strange sort of harmony within the  fashion world , it highlights how the music industry continue conduct itself as a driving influence across the strongest catwalks and designers. While head-to-toe pom poms may be a tad extreme for some, I spotted this  kooky bag at the TK Maxx preview. Nicki Minaj definitely has my vote – hurrah for the bizarre! Electric Ladybird x


Where I short circuit

I was sitting in the hairdressers at the weekend getting my hair highlighted and I was flicking through the stack of magazines as you do. I was browsing through Vogue (which I never buy – whats the point nothing fits or is affordable!) anyway I indulged myself and remarked to myself that the 50′s Mad Men shoot of Kate Moss looked great. As you know I have been on the hunt for a decent clutch bag in gold for a wedding and I nearly fell through the seat in...
