Furry friends.


I am back from a fantastic (kid free) long weekend in Marbella with the hubby and feeling very refreshed and excited. Refreshed because of the lay-in’s and excited because I bought a very lovely treat.

The weather was a little disappointing, but with not much sun I convinced Mr HOL to have a little shopping trip in Puerto Banus. This is his idea of hell, we never go shopping together and we both agree we like it this way….Me because I always shave at least 50% off the price’s that I tell him about and him because , well he hates it!

I prepared him with a few glasses of wine ( always loosens the wallet) and Jimmy Choo was in my sights. I had seen this AVA bag online and it was definitely my dream piece for this season. It incorporates the colour of the season Oxblood or Burgundy to us and also the seasons must have fur material.

It did not disappoint it is truly beautiful in the flesh and I know I will use it not only on an evening but also in the day, which is great as it was rather pricey.

Before I went to Marbella I also bought some pony skin oxblood skaters which happen to go perfectly… Genius!, so together with my new favourite long line waistcoat from Zara and waxed Paige denim skinnies I felt quite good for a less than exciting trip to the dentist.

I would have loved to have shown you pictures of my trip, outfits and new-found restaurants but I left my phone in the car at the airport in Leeds , so I was without a phone for 4 DAYS!!!! Yes, I can feel you cringe, it was painful.

What do you think to my bag? Have you got any luxury item on your wish list for this season? Let me know.

Take care
