Mulberry Alexa Handbag

| December 13, 2012

If there’s just one luxurious item on any Mum’s Christmas wishlist it must be a Mulberry handbag. The classic designs and quality of Mulberry evoke a timeless elegance and style.

My favourite Mulberry handbag is the Mulberry Alexa Handbag.

The Mulberry Alexa handbag is inspired by British style icon Alexa Chung and is a mix of the classic Mulberry bags the Bayswater and the men’s Elkington briefcase.

The Mulberry Alexa Handbag looks incredible whether worn casually with jeans or dressed up with a suit. It features:

  • Postman’s lock closure
  • Belt strap and buckle detailing
  • Tree lining and suede flap lining
  • Internal slip and zip pockets
  • Internal metal Mulberry fob detail
  • Plaited top handle
  • Detachable and adjustable leather shoulder strap

The handle drop on the Mulberry Alexa Handbag is 11cm and the shoulder strap measures 112cm to 128cm.

So hubby, if you’re reading this…

John Lewis Christmas Hampers

| November 28, 2012

Christmas Hampers make perfect Christmas gifts, providing tasty treats for everyone and are wonderful for sharing with friends and family over the Christmas holiday.

My husband and I received a John Lewis Christmas Hamper as a present last year and we feasted on its contents for almost a week. It was truly delicious! Not to mention the bottle of bubbly included in the hamper which went down exceptionally well with the black olive crackers.

This year John Lewis have a superb range of Christmas Hampers with a selection of Luxury Hampers, Fresh Food Hampers and Family Hampers.

If you’re busy with a baby or young children a John Lewis Christmas Hamper will give you the chance to put your feet up, enjoy some delicious food and wine and relax this Christmas.

My favourites are the Yuletide Christmas Hamper, the Sparkle Hamper and the Winter Pantry Fresh Hamper. A little indulgence that goes a long way!

Lego Duplo Read and Build

| November 24, 2012

I’ve just discovered the world of Lego Duplo Read and Build for babies aged 1.5 years to 4 years old.

It’s bright, bold, colourful and encourages imaginative play and dexterity. Each set comes with an accompanying story book with easy to follow instructions and an engaging story line that makes building fun and engages your child.

In the Lego Duplo Read and Build range there’s the Busy Farm Set, the Lets Go Vroom Set and the Grow Caterpillar Grow Set.

A Lego Duplo Read and Build Set would make a perfect stocking filler this Christmas.
