Today I got home to find a little package from Carmex, they have just released new flavours; vanilla, lime and pomegranate. I was sent pomegranate, which is a scent I go nuts for! This lip balm smells incredible, and feels lovely on your lips. Carmex make brilliant lip balms, and this is a lovely new flavour, also head over to their facebook and press like and share to be in with the chance of winning some goodies!
Tomorrow is November, which also means its the start of Movember 2012! Last night I went to the Toms X Movember launch party at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden. The night was a spectacular of 1920s themed fun! There were gin cocktails, fancy dress, screen printing teeshirts, a live band and showcasing the Toms X Movember range.
Toms are an ethical fashion brand, who love to get involved and help out where needed. Everything you buy from Toms is One for One, so for every one you buy, they donate to a child in need. It’s pretty brilliant!
As part of Movember Toms have made these super cute Moustache shoes to help raise awareness. While they are ethical and good, I personally love them because they are cute! I just love the teeny tiny moustache on the side!
Here are my photos from the launch party, thanks for inviting me along Toms, keep up the good work!
I have been lusting over a new satchel for years, I used to have a vintage one, but the twitching came undone and it split, leaving my purse, phone and keys on the floor of a club and my vintage leather satchel in tatters. It was a sad night, and a little worrying trying to scoop my things off a dance floor!
The Cambridge satchel company make beautiful satchels, made in the UK, and in traditional colours as well as bright neons and primary colours. They are lovely, also my favourite thing ever, is that you can get them monogrammed at no extra cost. Brilliant right?!
This Downing satchel is navy and maroon and beyond perfect for winter. It is inspired by the block colouring of the designer and founders visit to number 10 Downing street, what could be more British?! I love companies who make their goods in the UK, and the Cambridge Satchel Company are a shining example of how it can be done and be a selling point too.
I love the matt leather and patent leather finish, this bag is really really cute! It’s on my Christmas list, with my initials monogrammed on, of course!
Last week there was a Mawi jewellery sale on at Cocosa, so I had to buy something! In case you don’t know, Cocosa do flash sales of brilliant designer pieces, they have incredible buyers who really source great items from the best designers. They upload everything before the sale starts so you can choose what you want and then log in when the sale starts. I spent about two hours trying to figure out which item to buy, it wasn’t an easy decision for me!
My necklace arrived this morning and I just love it! I couldn’t be more pleased with it!
So today I am wearing a vintage Peter Pan collar dress, with a black jumper and my brand new Mawi necklace!! I’m so happy, I love it!
I have been wanting a pair of wedge shoes for a while now, I think they look cool and quite frankly wedges are so much more comfortable than heels. I toyed with the idea of buying plain black wedges, but it’s not really my look and I wanted something a bit more interesting…something a bit jazzier!!!
I just love these Toms plaid wedge shoes, I like they way they are neutral coloured, I really like the height of the heel and I think they will go with pretty much everything I own. Also Toms shoes are insanely comfortable and part of their One for One project, so I will be helping someone else out too. Oh yes, I need these!
