Impulse Buy: Paperchase’s Giant Coin Purse Tote Bag

| Impulse Buy

 

photoI’m a sucker for undersized and oversized items. Tennis balls the size of footballs, hot water bottles that fit in the palm of your hand, pencils you could use as a rounders’ bat: I have to have them all. A clear case of Alice In Wonderland-itis. I’m so big! I’m so small! Curiouser and curiouser…

My Alice alarm sounded when I saw this giant coin purse tote bag in Paperchase. Yes, Paperchase, the shop you buy cards and wrapping paper from. At a bargain price of £25.00 and with a strap you can fit your arm through, this one’s definitely going to the Mad Hatter’s tea party with me. I’m wearing it now, and grinning like a Cheshire cat.

Impulse Buy: Tesco’s Orla Kiely Shopper for Cancer Research

| Impulse Buy

Tesco bag

Our eyes met across the checkout queue, and it was love at first sight. You know the story: girl goes out to buy cereal, girl comes back with a new bag. But oh my, what a bag.

I’ve always been a fan of Orla Kiely’s quirky print, and a fair few of her accessories have adorned my wardrobe over the years. Which is why I couldn’t resist this limited edition Orla Kiely print shopper (for Cancer Research Ltd – extra fashion brownie points) from Tesco. It cost four pounds. Let me repeat that: FOUR POUNDS. This may be the cheapest most beautiful thing I’ve bought in a decade. Go buy one now. Hurry!
