When I was little I always admired my mother’s and grandmother’s handbags, it’s a simple pleasure for women to have a beautiful bag to keep all our essentials together and when you are young your influences come from those closest to you. Now I have daughter’s of my own and my youngest, like me, just loves to have her own handbag and is rivalling me in numbers already!
What a pleasure it was to collaborate with Cloudberry Bags on this post about their beautiful bags and scarves, and I don’t know who was more excited to open the beautifully packaged items from the delivery box – my daughters or me!
I have been following Cloudberry Bags on Twitter and regularly check to see what new designs and colours they have, their range isn’t just limited to handbags either as they have a gorgeous selection of scarfs, sarongs, summer hats, resort wear, tweed essentials, and cosy knitted wraps. What I really value in Cloudberry Bags product range is that it isn’t just limited to a specific age range, I have already chosen a bag that I know my mum will just love and even Siobhan my teenage daughter who is not a fan of handbags has already had a good look through the website and let me know which one she would like for her birthday!
As you can see below when you receive your package from Cloudberry Bags, expect exceptional attention to detail, it makes such a difference when so much care has been put into your purchase and aftercare. All the items were presented beautifully and wrapped to protect them from the journey, another huge plus as a customer.
The Burlington – £35.00
With a classic look and a beautiful curved shape which reminded me so much of the classic handbags my granny used to wear but with a contemporary feel to it. The Burlington is a real statement bag, big enough to keep all the essentials in place with three internal pockets and an additional long strap as well as the double handles included.
I chose the teal colour, but you can also purchase the bag in seven other colours and at £35.00 each it offers such good value, that I am already deciding on which colour to buy for the upcoming BritMums Live 2015 !
The Burlington is a tough faux leather and has four small metal feet at the base to stabilise and protect when placed down. It is very comfortable to carry (such an important feature when choosing a great bag!) as the finish on the handles is very smooth and I like the fact that you have the option of the longer strap if needed.
Kew Scarf £8.00
I just love pretty scarfs, so I was delighted to review two beautiful ones from the Cloudberry Bags range, and I think the Kew scarf goes so well with The Burlington in teal. What’s not to love about the pretty botanical designs in pink and black and the soft flowing fabric (polyester silk mix) is so wearable and perfect for the Summer weather. The Kew looks great with a black outfit and really complements to give a pop of modern colour, I have had so many complements about this scarf and I can see why it is so very popular.
Africa Scarf £12.00
I have a huge love for leopard print accessories so when I saw the Africa Scarf from Cloudberry Bags and the pretty animal print fusion I knew it would look perfect with a number of my outfits. I like the soft brown colours on the Africa Scarf, and it’s so versatile as you can use it to dress up a smarter work outfit or wear it casually at the weekend. What a winner.
