Online vs The High St

Hey Everyone, 

So tonights blog comes from a conversation that developed at lunchtime today after talking about the closure of Toys R Us 

It made me think that in my local area now I can actually think of one stand alone toy shop on the high street that is not part of another store. 
Years ago you saw more individual stand alone stores which I remember going to with my brother. We didn't go every week but had the chance of saving up our pocket money to spend when we got there or to put towards something bigger.

Toys R Us to both of us was a massive treat to go to and I always thought one day I'd be able to take my children too. With last weeks announcement of more New Look stores and even some of the flagship ones closing down it makes me wonder how much closer we are getting to shopping all being done in shopping centres/malls or online. 

It also makes me wonder about how the next generation won't have the experiences we had growing up, with learning to save their pocket money and going to pick something out in the toy shop or just going shopping on a local high street. Online shopping is there for ease for the majority of us but it is taking away something that has been with us for many years. There are too many empty shops n some places more than full shops.

I will always support local shops, if you have the time to stop and look you can always find something to come away with.
Councils should be doing more to save this experience so it's doesn't loose to the online culture.

I hope you've enjoyed this blog it was a different one to write

Pauls Boutique

Hey Everyone, 

So for today's blog I thought I'd focus on a brand. 

This week I ordered the new Maisy Top Handle Bag in Pink / Black. I fell in love with this bag when I saw it appear on Instagram a few weeks ago and have been waiting patiently to get my hands on it after release. 
I had to wait a few extra weeks but was very happy as the price had dropped a bit and I had a discount code to use on the order. 
The whole order process when ever I've used the website over the years has always been very quick and easy and I also love that you have extra options to pay including Paypal which on some websites I find a much easier option.
Even though I ordered late on the Thursday eve the bag was dispatched the next day with its delivery slot for Monday all lined up. I love that Pauls Boutique use DPD as their delivery drivers. You can download the app and track where your delivery is and its so easy to reorganise if needed. 

The bag itself eventually arrived on Tuesday and I am so happy with it. Perfect size for day to day use and am happy to say it'll be great when the weather improves to wear with my biker jacket as an over shoulder one. Its a great add to see the bags come with straps now and also decent size length ones as well so they are at a good length to wear and not to high up.

I really recommend all the new designs on the site at the moment. The new ranges for the Spring are all amazing its hard not to order anymore.

I have you've enjoyed this blog

Let it Snow

Hey Everyone, 

I hope you are all ok and not too cold if you are in the UK and in the path from the so called Beast From the East that is covering the UK.

Whilst it's been nice to see the snow which looks pretty for a few hours or so I don't know about you but I am so ready for Spring right now. This wind chill has made its point. 

How have you all found the snow where you are ? It's been very quick with the snow showers and blizzards here in London. I'm currently looking out the window at a very snowy scene which could easily be passed off as Narnia right now.

I'm working on a set of blog posts that will be up on here and also on Box office Bloggers over March to celebrate both the blogs birthdays along with some new posts so make sure you check back and see whats going on this month. 

If you haven't yet hit the follow button to keep up to date with my new posts :) thank you all so much for the support for both the blogs as well.

Spring is that you ?

Hey Everyone, 
I hope you've all had a great week

It's usually about now Spring starts to peep out and show signs of its arrival. With the 2 warmish days last weekend I had high hopes but the biting wind with the bitter wind chill has arrived with a double threat of snow next week. 
I don't know about you but it just makes me want to just curl up under as many blankets as i can find and hide away till Spring really arrives.
With the evenings staying lighter longer this makes me very happy as I hate the dark hours. I am also that person that will stop anywhere to take pictures of sunsets. They fascinate me no matter where I am in the world to grab pictures of them.
I love signs that Spring is on the way, finding the blossom trees todays in London makes me look forward to long walks in the park when all the trees are in bloom with all the colours out. 
What do you all look forward to when Spring arrives, drop me a comment below and let me know

Have a great week

Labels are for Clothes

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all having a great week - anyone else ready for Spring now ? 

So at the weekend I popped into River Island to pick up some items from the Labels are for Clothes Campaign which is being supported in store and also online. Check out the River Island website for more information River Island 

The campaign supports the anti bullying campaign which is being run by Ditch the Label check these great items out which are on sale River Island Labels are for Clothes

This is a worthy cause which shows stereotyping of people and bullying has to stop and Labels should remain on clothes and not people.

I will getting some more of the tops, don't forget to pick up yours.

Have a great rest of the week
