Michael kors bag designs

Have you noticed, over the past year Michael Kors bags seem to be everywhere, everyone and and thier mother has a MK bag and the trend seems to be getting more immense. (My mother bought her bag last month!)

Early on in the year, before I noticed the popularity of the MK, I stepped into my local Covent Garden Michael Kors shop in London and instantly fell in love with the beige bag:

This one to be exact:

I loved it and instantly purchased..

Then over the next months I noticed everyone had the same bag- I can’t say that I was pleased- but its a cute bag so I guess its expected.


So this post is a top five list of my favourite MK bags!




Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Medium Tote

We think this is a traditional, no nonsense sensible yet sexy bag perfect for meetings, work, after work drinks and the usual city office busy life.

Perfect for the modern business woman.

Miranda Crocodile Medium Tote

This is a luxury bag- one of the more expensive bags by the MK. Crocodile makes the price point of this around the $7000 mark. It is a great bag for those that want that exclusive look- and one that not everyone will have!



Hamilton Large Saffiano Leather Tote

The Tote is a classic bag for the feminine arm and works well with any outfit- Large enough for the files and folders. Traditional Statement piece in a bold solid cadbury purple colour.



Sutton Medium Logo Satchel Bag

The Satchel bag is a classic for many of the other brands so MK of course had to come out with something similar and this print is a favourite. Medium sized perfect for everyday use.

Of course my bag had to be number one! the shape- size- colour everything about the bag is simply worth it.

If your thinking about buying your lady a bag- then the Michael Korrs is a good choice- the price point isn’t ridiculous and you can have a little bit of luxury.

So whilst shopping in John Lewis this weekend for some awesome new surround sound speakers for my TV-something else in the electrical section caught my eye and became the inspiration for todays post.

DAB radios- ok not the hippest of items known to man and Sharp N Chic fashion, however the design of these products really stood out to me and have now been made cool simply because of the really chic and fun way they had been created.

I know most people have iphones or smart phones that they can listen to music from- Thank you Apple- but Radio still is rather popular in the car and in the office when the iphone isnt plugged in- so these pretty cute radios can still come in handy. As an avid driver around the streets of London I’m often tuned into London’s biggest conversation-(LBC) which has become my favourite station! lots to learn and talk about and we all know I LOVE to talk so its very fitting!

However, I digress,

If you are planning to purchase a DAB radio- the clear advantage is the plethora of radio stations that become available to you then these cute designer sets are an option for you!


EVOKE Mio by Orla Kiely

I had never heard of Orla Kiely before seeing this radio- but from it I find her and her designs to be pretty cool- its certainly a new take on the boring drab black plastic radio designs that we all once had- ideal for the young and the young-at-heart radio/ music lovers- small and discreet and fits in anywhere. It also has an Iphone and mp3 player doc so it works out to be very useful.

Orla has a homerange which this particular radio fits into quite well bright colourful and fun.

It was on sale in John Lewis for £149.00.

What do you think?

Roberts DAB Radios

John Lewis had an unpecidented amout of the Roberts brand and these are really exciting and very funky indeed- a colour and design for every possible person.

I, of course, fell in love with the Union Jack- even though I’m not particularly patriotic I JUST LIKED the boldness of it! HA!  OTHER Than that It does a great job of mixing vintage styling and the contemporary technology- it is a special edition version so if you do plan on buying it get it now as there are only limited numbers.

But there are loads of styles to choose from if this one is not for you- from pastels to patterns and more.

The brand of Roberts radio boasts 120 hours of battery life which is about five times more than competing models as well as multi station presets and a favourite button storage. Like the Orla it comes with the stereo line in for ipod and MP3 players and an LCD display.

So why not check out both Orla and Roberts to match the radio to your personality..

So, It looks like Lipstick has got an upgrade! with temporary tattoo lips.

We have all read about permanent makeup- which is ultimately, makeup; that usually, isn’t really ,THAT permanent, BUT lasts a few weeks or months- individual eye lashes for example tend to last 2-3 weeks if you are lucky and don’t wash your face or touch your eyes!

Whilst eyebrow tattoo kits can last up to three months or real permanent eyebrows can last – well permanently!

But now, at long last the lipstick has got its permanent partner and this is found in the new craze that has seemed to have swept the American nation…not so much British just yet but we thought we would get in first to tell you about it!

Violet Lips call it “Temporary Lip Appliqués” which is basically temporary lip applications.

They sell them in packs of three- so thats three dramatic lip tattoos that can supposedly last 8 hours, which is longer than any normal lipstick or gloss.

The pack retails on their website from $9.99 and upwards depending on the style you want.

It has a similar concept to the Minx nail applications which you cut, wet and stick on for dramatic designs which cannot really be done free hand.

Jessie J, is one of the most popular artists that have worn the union jack lip application- in this particular picture it has been retouched so it gives the effect of dripping but she also wore the similar pack to the set whilst she was performing her song.

More recently Kendall Kardashian must have got the stickons sent to her through the post for a bit of “FREE” advertising aka ‘plugging’- she tweeted a picture of her in the stickons looking very pretty as usual.

She commented on the picture “Just tried these super cool purple leopard lips I got them from Violentlips tattoos. Love them!

I’m sure she also loved the cheque that came through as well!

Can’t blame the princess..

Her sister also got a pair for the twitter pages as well as Vanessa from the Saturdays.
