Fashion/ Tote of the week/ Wish List
August 19, 2011

Tote (and posts) of the week!

A yellow striped tote from Bayan Hippo with chunky rope handles. Do I need to say anything else? Nup? OK then.

Also on the blog today (I seriously have nothing else to say about that bag!) I’d like to launch (snips ribbon) a new Friday feature to befriend my tote of the week posts, entitled ‘Post of the week’. Ooh what a wordsmith I am!

I read a lot of blogs and am inspired each week by the blogging community, so I’d thought I’d share the love and all that jazz! I will begin the feature properly next week with my favourite post of that week, but for now, here’s a snippet of some great posts that have made me smile over the past few days.

Preparing for Christmas by the super lovely…

How to make a Number Pinata by the always wonderful…

12+ Storage ideas round-up by the ever inspiring…

10 things I love by the delightful…

Happy reading and happy weekend y’all! I’m off to drink some Mary Jane beer…nom!

P.S Fancy reading my weekly post over at Natural History? I’m going crazy for perfect parcels

    That tote needs no words. Great new feature too, though I am scared if I add any more blogs to my reader I may not cope! I am sure these will be worth checking out though so have duly bookmarked for the weekend and a cup of tea!

    Yum, I love that bag. I’ve thrown myself into loving yellow full on this year.

    Thanks for the mention in your round up too. I’m just about to check out the other blogs too.

    It’s yellow. And stripy. I NEED IT <some words, but choice ones.

    I love posts of the week. it's like a blog buffet. LOVE.

    Please excuse all the capitals. I feel the need to be emphatic today!

    Gorgeous tote – very summery but alas it seems that we’ve had it for sun in the UK now until next year! Lovely idea for a new feature – I’ve done round ups a few times and I tip my hat to you as it does take a lot of time to upload all the links and relevant blog headers! I’ve already read the Christmas preparation post from A Thrifty Mrs, just off to have a read of the others now!

    P.S. Just had a read through your most recent posts and really enjoyed them – following you on Bloglovin’ now! (Following on WP too but I always find the subscriptions system on here rubbish and I always forget to check it!).

      Thank you for the follow! I shall check out your blog now : )
      P.S WordPress subscription is rubbish isn’t it?!
