I’ve been in love with Mansur Gavriel ever since they first launched on net-a-porter. And though it took me some time to admit it, I’ve been in love with mini bags for a while too. I love the unique shapes and lines that Mansur Gavriel products have, and I love how they branched out from their iconic bucket bags, to chic footwear that is just as stylish and classic. With the case of mini bags, I just love how miniature and small they are and how cute they look.
So imagine my delight when doing my weekly perusal, I came across Mansur Gavriel’s latest offering: the Sun Mini Mini. Sun Mini Mini has probably got to be the cutest mini bag range I’ve ever seen (sorry Fendi). Everything from the size, to the drawstring, right down to the trademark bow detail, I am in love.
What’s more, these cute bags come in a variety of colours… and guess what? Yes, I want them all…
Please do not ask me how I discovered this brand or why it took me so long to discover this brand because I do not know. The brainchild of two friends, Poppy and Suki, Pop and Suki is a new (not really but kind of) brand offering cool and chic bags and accessories that will make you feel just as cool and chic – or at least they definitely should because these pieces are UH-MAZ-ING.
Case in point their camera bag which I am totally OBSESSED with. Not only is it the perfect size for hanging out with friends or going on a date (it’s small enough to not be bulky, but still big enough to fit an iPhone 6 Plus and a passport – perfect for those last minute getaways 😉 ) but it can be worn in a multitude of different ways i.e.: a bum bag, a backpack, a cross body, a clutch, a mini bag or a side bag – the possibilities really are endless with this. AND not to mention you can also get your name printed on the bottom!!! The thing I love most about the camera bag is that you can really personalise it however you want thanks to the choice of straps, colours, accessories and print you choose. Naturally I’m drawn to the pink aptly names Cotton Candy (even though I want one in every colour), that I can already picture myself wearing every day; and I’m also loving the wide strap and the short tassels.
Prices for these bags are kind of high (they start at £164.02) but are definitely worth the investment. I haven’t seen many reviews for this bag and the site only has a few pictures of its exterior, but I’m still extremely excited about this bag.
I love how cute and girly these bags are and really cannot wait until I can own one. And just like that another item has been added to my wish list. Watch this space…

There have been lots of great new things on net-a-porter recently, but the one brand that has really stuck out to me is… you guessed it, Fendi. Like most girls, I’ve always liked Fendi (even when it had the tendency to look kind of tacky), but it wasn’t until around year that I properly started to consider myself a fan. Their Jour and Baguette line of bags are definitely their staples, but it’s their latest line, the DotCom, that’s got my attention. The bags are really cute and look like baby owls.
Obviously I couldn’t miss out their other bags that I’m madly in love with.
I can’t wait to start building a Fendi collection so that one day I can pass them on to my daughter. See what other great stuff net-a-porter has.
Yes it’s that time of the month again where I share five of my favourite things. I think it’s fair to say that September has been a really mellow month for me so far (but who knows what’ll happen in the next six days…). Since handing in my dissertation at the beginning of the month, I’ve been relishing the fact that for the first September in about twenty years (I’m not even joking) I haven’t had to return to any form of education. It’s been both exhilarating and a little weird, but it’s something that was going to happen sooner or later. So, what have I been doing instead of returning to the classroom you ask? Well, I’ve been eyeing up the cutest mini bags and making a wish list of course. Check it out.
