New Arm Candy and it Comes with a Pom Pom

I have a friend who is a complete bag enabler. Actually, I have several. You know the type who send you a link to a luscious leather bag that’s eye-wateringly expensive but suits you to perfection. Well this particular bag enabler, we’ll call her Hills, goes one step further handing over glossy brochures, pinpointing the pages I need to focus on. And 99.9% of the time she’s right. And then I have to make a purchase.

The Latest Addition to My Handbag Collection

Look what I’ve got my grubby little paws on. It’s only this gorgeous petrol Bowery bag from Rebecca Minkoff.

I was lucky enough to receive some money for my birthday and knew instantly that I wanted to add a luxurious leather item to my collection. In particular, I knew I wanted something fairly small but still roomy and preferably one that I could throw across my shoulders. Enter Rebecca Minkoff.

I think I may actually be obsessed with Minkoff. I’ve signed up to her emails, regularly stalk her site for lust-worthy items and I’ve even been having dreams that she’s my best friend and keeps gifting me more bags than I have room for.

Anyway, I spotted this bag on The Outnet and instantly fell head over heels. It had 40% off the original price and was exactly what I was looking for. And it’s even better in real life.

It has a three almost hidden pockets; one zipped at the front, one under the lobster clasp and then a sleeve at the back. The snap-fastening front flap conceals a brilliant black and white canvas with enough room for all my essentials. I flipping love it.

I’m hoping this means I will stop packing my bags to the point of overflowing and as a result my shoulders will reap the benefits. I’ll let you know. Just expect to see even more of this bad boy.

They’re Grrreat

When I was younger my biggest dilemma in life was whether to have Frosties or Coco Pops for breakfast. It was a tough toss up between beautifully crisp, sugar-coated flakes of goodness or the cereal with special powers turning the milk chocolaty. I couldn’t even pick now.

Which is why Anya Hindmarch has made my life so much more difficult.

I don’t know how I’m only just stumbling across these incredible clutches now but I am and I’m in love.

In fact, they’re grrreat!

Frosties Imperial Clutch, £995

When he saw the milk go chocolaty he jumped right in…

Coco Pops Imperial Clutch, £995

I realise that a box of cereal is a helluva lot cheaper than these clutches BUT it wouldn’t look the same with a cardboard box tucked under my arm would it…

Meet the Fluffy New Addition to My Handbag Collection

What’s fluffy, ridiculously cute and can be found hanging off my shoulder? My new handbag straight outta my dreams of course!

This purchase all happened so fast it’s become a bit of a blur. 
It all started with a day trip to Gunwharf Quays on the hunt for the perfect birthday prezzies for my dad and big sis. We found both easily, no spoilers here. However, as soon as we walked into Fiorelli I knew it’d be trouble. 

You see this little fluffy number practically threw itself off the clearance shelf into my arms. It was fate. The meeting of two life partners who couldn’t be any better suited.
I’m on a shopping ban at the moment (which is painful) so knew I wouldn’t be buying it, even though it was an absolute bargain at £15. This didn’t stop me from walking round the shop, checking myself out in all the mirrors. 
It all ended with my little brother grabbing it from me and marching to the till with it.

And now it’s all mine.
Cue evil laugh and me throwing my head back.
