Hello, Lovlies!  What are your plans for the weekend?  I’m heading up for a weekend in Birmingham with the boy and his family.  I always love visiting his parents – his mom is a wonderful cook.  We will hopefully get up to some festivities this weekend, leading up to the holidays, and I’m dying to go ice skating!

Enjoy the links below 🙂  Have a great weekend!

Who knew that shopping for men could be so difficult?  Not only shopping for men… but shopping for men with men.  Add a designer girlfriend to the list and you’ve got instant chaos!  Or, at least it was when I was at the shops with my man last weekend – searching for his Christmas gift.

Not only do they want what they want, but men can be so detailed in their personal gifts.  It took me ten minutes to pick out his Ray-Ban sunglasses for his birthday (albeit I worked for Sunglass Hut at the time), yet it takes him ages to find his perfect bag.

By the way – it was agreed that he was getting a M-urse.  A man-purse, portfolio, briefcase, call it what you’d like.  (To put this in context – he is a professional secondary school teacher of history.  He is currently carrying around a 10 year old rucksack.  All designers may gasp in horror now.)  I got him to see the light.

So, after initial debates about the colour of the bag (he wanted brown, I said black) to material debates (he wanted ‘youthful looking’, I wanted classic professional and leather) we finally decided on a smooth and sleek Jeff Banks bag.  It was perfect for him! (And for my designer self!)

See that photo above?  It’s the exact one.  Never mind the sale currently on at Debenhams for this bag, we hit the jackpot.  It was professional yet easy, leather and black yet pliable.  It works and I expect him to use it for at least a few years!
