Happy Easter

Mimi Berry at John Lewis, Oxford Street

Back in February I went to see Mimi launch her Spring Summer 2013 range at John Lewis Oxford Street.
Here are some of Mimi's team hard at work making the Eric bag which this season comes in deep pink, marine blue, dove grey and citrine yellow. I love the orange angle poise lamp perched on the work bench.

Miller & Jeeves purses

What could be more lovely than these purses from Miller & Jeeves?
 I first came across this Oxfordshire-based company about a year ago, and the tan Aubrey purse accompanied me on my adventures in New York (see here).
I am now the happy owner of an Aubrey purse in beautfiul soft red leather, and the smaller Elsa Mini. Both the Aubrey and Elsa Mini purses are made from strong leather that looks good and will wear well.

I just love the Sam Browne stud.
I like to pack a lot into my purses, and if they can't take everything, including at least one lipstick, then they don't last more than a week in my bag. The Aubrey has done well - I've got a few credit cards and many store loyalty cards, plus a purse for small change (mongrammed, from Mimi Berry - and currently on sale) and my oyster card holder (from Selina Cheong). And my Clinique Angel Red lipstick, no longer available in the UK, but the best true red lipstick I've ever found.

Country Living Spring Fair 2013

The Country Living Magazine Spring Fair 2013 is on from today, until 24th March, at the Business Design Centre in Islington. 
I've been a few times to the Country Living Fair and found some great British Designer Makers, such as Whinberry & Antler, Rose Cottage Boxes and 88 and a half (blogged about here).

Nearest tube Angel which is a 3 minute walk from the Business Design Centre.
