Just loving Mulberry Mini Lily|Small Cross Body Leather Bags|

Once upon a time I used to have a a yellow Mulberry mini Lily bag, this bag has found a new home Canada!!! ( I visit it often!!) As I am always on the look out for the perfect cross body bag I was delighted when I spotted this blue mini Lily in store the other day (House of Fraser Manchester) The detail on the chain straps is just gorgeous and the price is perfect. It easily takes cards, phone, keys and a lipstick, what more d you need!

It comes in many colours but these are my favourites:

A Look Back at my Personal Shopper Diary|Personal Shopping at House of Fraser|

I have been doing the “personal shopper” thing for 5 months now at House of Fraser Manchester and I have to say I do love it. The leap from accountancy to this via this website was enormous but great fun. One of the nicest things for me is being able to wear my clothes everyday instead of suits!! My shoes may not always be comfortable but they are always pretty (I do admit that sone days I have to change!!)

You will notice a lot of Whistles in my wardrobe but hey I love it!!

I often post my outfit onto intstagram so I thought I would share some of my favourites with you.

All you will ever need for the beach|One Stop Holiday Shop|Bikinis & Beachwear|

As always I am day dreaming about having sand between toes, a few bellinis on the balcony watching the sunset on another beautiful day! I love choosing all of the pieces that I will take with me  and all of the pieces that I already have waiting for me from my previous trips.

The problem I have is  I don’t actually enjoy trailing around the shops looking for beachwear with a difference. The bikinis need to be vibrant and the cover ups need to made from  beautiful cotton, these things are not always easy to find.

Over the years I have trawled thousands of websites that sell beachwear and found some absolute gems but I have now found Beachcafe and that I consider to be a coup!! The choice of designer  swimwear and beachwear is pretty impressive by any standard. Beachwear includes Melissa Odabash (amongst others) which is always one of my favourites for great beach dresses & bikinis.

Today I have picked a few of my favourite pieces and most importantly for me they will work on the annual Peruvian adventure.

All of the pieces featured are available at www.beachcafe.com Shipping is available globally so no one is left out.

Todays shopping basket|The best beachwear|Bandeau Bikinis|

After booking a few days in the sun for September I have decided to look for some new beachwear. I have a lot of bikinis and shorts but every year I take all of my new buys to Peru and leave them there! It means I can buy new every year as I obviously forget what I have left behind!!

If you are looking for designer beachwear at the moment then you need to check www.beachcafe.com I have just discovered it and I love it. They stock a great range of designers like Melissa Odabash, Juliet Dunn, Seafolly and many more. They offer next day delivery or you can pick it up from Ledbury Rd in London, this just happens to be one of my favourite streets as it always houses Matches & Austique, what more do you want.

The Charo Ruiz blue skirt that I have included below is from this site and you have to agree it is beautiful. That is definitely going to Peru it will look amazing with a tan.

If you want to treat yourself there is 10% off first orders using the code FS01.

I do have a large collection of hats in Peru, they even have their own hat stand but obviously there is always room for one more and Ido love this one from Hat Attack.
