I’ll level with you here – I LOVE bags! They totally float my boat in every way, as anyone who knows me can testify. To the point that it “might” have been slightly awkward when my OH bumped into my ex in the bag department of Selfridges one Christmas.
Yeah. A-W-K-W-A-R-D with a capital A! They both knew why my OH was there and thankfully the conversation didn’t turn to “which one do you think she would like best”?!
I first came across Peach Pink London in one of my fave shops, Anthropologie, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. And I love what the ladies behind the brand have achieved. Vanessa Pinkney and Helen Peachey are two former buyers for HUGE companies who knew their buying days were behind them when they had kids. They wanted to set up a life that meant they could juggle everything, so that’s exactly what they did – with their own brand which totally fits around school runs and life with kids.
And the bags are Di-Vine. I just got the gorgeous Lucinda bag in khaki which has a stunning red lining, and even a cushioned pocket for an i-pad. What’s not to love?
The ladies recently won “Best Start Up Business” at the Mumpreneur Awards, so if ever you needed an excuse to support them, BOOM! There it is. An award to be reckoned with since the number of self employed women in the UK is growing at three times the rate of self employed men and there are currently 300,000 Mumpreneurs, contributing £7.4bn to the economy every year. I’d call that something to celebrate!
So happy shopping as I *might* have managed to get us all a 20% discount because that’s the kind of girl I am! Just put in KATYHILLLOVES when you check out and get 20% off between now and 1st December.
Early Christmas present? Rude not to really!
