Katherine couldn't have asked for a more lovely birthday last weekend! She had a fab day Friday working with the lovely 'Lola Rose' team on their shows at QVC and they kindly gifted her a beautiful necklace and bracelet set from their stunning new collection, see photo below! :) They're absolutely gorgeous and she's had lots of compliments on them already, they're fairly different pieces to our other LR jewellery and we can't wait to see the rest of the new collection!

The weekend continued, meeting up with lots of friends and family over the weekend for Prosecco, presents and lots of scrummy cake! She received so many of her favourite things and super surprises too, as well as lots of lovely messages...She's feeling like a very lucky lady! Jane's week was busy and especially at the weekend getting last minute birthday celebrations in order and making her infamous Chocolate Roulade, a family favourite, that contains no flour but lots of chocolate and fresh whipped cream! Think we'll need to be 'good' for the rest of the month after all the cake this weekend but with the temperatures dropping so swiftly all we can think about is warm hearty food at the end of the day to warm us up!
We've been on the lookout for some great new buys for you this month too and we love it when we find something that's as beautiful as it is practical! The Camouflage Company's products are exactly this. They're most well known for their beautifully designed storage solutions for the home but one of their newest arrivals is a fabulously chic Tote bag with an ingenious little surprise - it comes with a matching smaller bag inside with a detachable shoulder strap! We loved this for two reasons....
No.1 - We absolutely love 'bags in bags!' It makes life so much easier when you have your different necessities in smaller bags inside your bag. It's less clutter-some, so finding what you're looking for is easier but it also makes life much simpler when you're changing over handbags day to day.
No.2 - We love the fact that we can take the Tote, with the smaller bag inside, out shopping with us and as our purchases accumulate we simply remove the smaller bag, attach the shoulder/cross body strap and put our purse and essentials in this, leaving plenty of room in our tote for all our shopping!... 'Ingenious' as we said! The lovely ladies at the Camouflage Company are obviously girls after our own hearts, who love shopping and understand what women need to make all our busy lives simpler!
The Camouflage Company's 'Embossed Paisley Totes' are available in two colours, 'Ecru' or 'Black' and are lined with some of the Camouflage Company's most iconic prints. So, if you're looking for practical but beautiful gift ideas or have been searching for something that fits the brief for an ideal day to day bag for yourself, tune in to QVC today, Thursday 10th November at 3pm when the 'Camouflage Sisters' will be presenting a selection of their collection, you never know what other practical beauties you might see or browse their website at www.thecamouflagecompany.com
We'll be using these bags a lot i'm sure... the one thing they won't do is keep us warm though ! The temperatures have been dropping rapidly and it's time for some serious winter warmers! We'll be doing a 'winter warmers' edit soon and will be on the look out for some comforting coziness and stylish snugness! We'll be out and about hunting down the ' top of the shops' and will keep you updated. In the meantime have a great rest of the week and we'll be back soon! X
