Ask Her Friends

Ask Her Friends October Panel

As fans of both shopping and lists, we are delighted to say that we have now joined the Ask Your Friends bloggers panel! Along with some of our blogger faves, every month we will be picking our top pieces from the Ask Her Friends website in order to help those who perhaps don’t have the same ability to spend hours online scrolling through websites shopping. We definitely have no such issue.

This month was an Autumnal theme and we had a great time searching for the perfect  pieces and, after a healthy narrowing down session, went for the following….

1) Hidden Heart Mittens by Eka. How sweet is that heart detail? Now if only it was cold enough to wear them!

2) The rather dapper Sherlock Brooch – And Smile  by the super lovely Tigerlilly Quinn which shows a seasonally stylish Sherlock ready to take on the elements. Oh, Benedict it would be an honour to pin you to our lapels….ahem, moving on.

3) Comes in the form of a Jo Malone French Lime Blossom Home Candle by The Collection because nothing says Autumn like a nice cosy candle and lime blossom just sounds divine!

4) We were instantly rather taken with Alice’s Teapot Necklace by By Emily and can just imagine it looking lovely worn with a nice mustard jumper! 

5) Finally we went for the incredible Fashionista Biscuit Tin by Biscuiteers which possibly isn’t particularly Autumnish but seeing as our Saturday nights at this time of year are now mostly spent in front of the TV chomping on sweet treats with Strictly on, it felt appropriate to us!

We recommend heading over to the Ask Her Friends website as they are running a competition to win a £50 gift voucher (hello biscuits!) simply for voting for your favourite panelist’s choices! We even promise not to be offended if you don’t choose us….however Sherlock will definitely judge you.


Accessories to Murder #15

Hello and welcome to the 15th Accessories to Murder. I’m pretty excited about this one, not only is it chock-full of food and felines, but it features possibly the best clutch bag ever! It’s so magnificent that I’m not going to waste anymore of your time on this ‘ere intro and just let you go and swoon over its embroidered beauty. You’re welcome.

Alice in Wonderland Clutch | Olympia La Tan | £1,015

Ok, so it’s jolly expensive but a girl can dream, right? Enjoyable Moby Dick and Mary Poppins editions are also available, but hurry, as these clutches are so special that only 16 of each have been made. You will be so pleased to discover that I’ve done the fashion maths and if all of our twitter followers lend me £1.34, it shall be mine!

Lucky Team Watch | ASOS | £30

It will always be burger’o’clock with this Lucky Team watch from ASOS. It’s fun, functional and features cheese. What else do you want from a watch? If that tickles your pickle, how about the matching phone case below from New Look , or these quite excellent socks from M&Co? Meaty!

Sleeping Cat Bag | ASOS | £18

These cute kitties could be catching some Zzzzzzz’s, or merely showing off their exceptionally long eyelashes. Either way, they are pretty darn cute. Which do you prefer? I’m totally feline the black one…

iPhone Cover | Zara | £12.99

We all know that cereal is amazing and if I lived alone, it would probably be the only thing I would eat. If you are not a part of the breakfast (fan)club, it also comes in what I call, ‘banging bagel’.

Cat Slippers | Shoon | £39.99

Now, I wouldn’t normally recommend chopping a cat in half, but if it’s for the sake of a great pair of slippers, I am willing to turn a blind eye on this occasion. My Topshop cat slippers are coming to the end of their 9th life, and when they do I will definitely be heading to Shoon.

Milkshake Necklace | Chelsea Doll | £8

Time for the last burger item, and what a whopper! I’m a big fan of ‘online dressing up box’ Chelsea Doll and their quirky accessories. This milkshake necklace is made to be worn to one of our favourite places to visit in Bristol, Rocotillos.
