Mamma Mia!


I was in Leicester Square yesterday and couldn't resist taking photos of the Mamma Mia displays. I cannot wait to see this movie!

New Mulberry


After at least a year of waiting, I have finally purchased a Mulberry Mabel. The leather is soft and grainy, and the stylish black and white color scheme will go with everything I own. I am in love!

Helen Mirren at the BBC


I purchased this DVD boxset yesterday, it looks really good! Alongside 11 classic performances, we are treated to an exclusive new interview, and one that Mirren did with Parkinson. I'm all up for a bit of Helen performing Shakespeare!! :)

LDN: What a fashionable town


Here are a few photos from Bond Street in London. Chanel, Asprey and LV! :D

And Chanel in Bond Street. The Chanel carvings were so gorgeous.

These were at Asprey. Again gorgeous windows and items.

Below: All from Louis Vuitton. There window displays were really summery and lovely.

Kitchen Queen


Rather funny today, I met Delia Smith at my local bookstore, she was signing copies of her new cookbook. I didn't purchase but she said hi and complimented me on my Mulberry bag.
:) LOL

Stay tuned!


Pop back later for my Oscar special post

The Mulberry Bentlay Bag


As described on the Mulberry website: "A classic Mulberry style produced through special collaboration with Bentlay. Designed to match the Brooklands Bentlay car interior, with Bentlay feet and zip pull. Featuring an encraved postman's lock at front in a nickel finish, red suede lining, as well as inside belt strap to enable widening."


This is such a gorgeous bag, I think it personifies old-school elegance, the style of Jackie Kennedy and classic film stars such as Greta Garbo.
I wonder if Mulberry will make me a bag to match my new car?
