Cath Kidston Press Day #ckss14

I have been a fan of Cath Kidston for many, many years. So when they got in touch and asked if I’d like to attend a press day for the launch of their new prints for next year, there was only going to be one possible answer. A most definite yes. So I headed off to the Big Smoke & managed to find my way to the Rook & Raven gallery, where the day was being held. I had a good look round and took plenty of pictures. Take a look!

I was very excited to see what they would have to offer and I’m not disappointed. I like the new prints. I think they stay true to what people expect from Cath Kidston, but they’re different enough to keep us all interested, and boy am I interested! I’ll take one of everything please!

Not only were there lots of lovely things to see, they also provided refreshments! (Love free food!) I have the most delicious tasting soup ever – A butternut squash and sage soup. Perfect for warming up, as it was bloomin’ freezing in London! I also received a goody bag, which included these gorgeous socks from the Safari range, a handy travel cup, which I plan to use asap and a lovely tote bag, also from the Safari range.

Awesome Winter Jumpers

I don’t know about you, but I’m very pleased that autumn is on its way. My main reason? Jumpers. I love jumpers. They are my favourite thing to wear, cosy & comfy, they go with almost everything & they are a sign that it’s okay to stay in the warm! Here are a few jumpers that I’ve seen online recently. I would buy them all in an instant if I had the cash.


I think this jumper is so cute! You’re never too old to wear an owl jumper in my book.

I have given in and treated myself to the Boden Fair Isle jumper – how could I not?! (Plus, I used their 20% off code!) To be honest, I could pretty much buy the entire contents of the Boden catalogue! I know these jumpers are quite pricey, but when you think about the creation of the jumpers, from start to finish, it’s a pretty lengthy process with lots of people involved. It’s taking me ages to knit a jumper, and while I know these aren’t hand knitted, someone has made them so I don’t think they’re over priced – I just wish I had more money! Plus, if they’re looked after correctly, they’ll last for ages, providing you with lots & lots of cosiness!
