Mini bags are a trend that’s still going strong but what do you do when you’ve got loads of stuff to cart around?  Why, invest in a giant tote bag of course.  Oversized bags are everywhere but these exclusive leather trimmed camouflage beauties are designed by North London’s Emily Newson. They’re just one string to her very talented bow – check out her instagram @emnews72 and prepare to be wowed.

The bags come in different shapes and sizes with a choice of trim. After much deliberation I went for the biggest and chose the pink metallic trim (pink is going to be huge, trust me).  I also customised my bag with some iron on patches by Jennie Maizels

You can usually find a selection of Emily’s bags at Margot in Crouch End and while you’re there book a treatment or invest in some Mish London pyjamas. It’s January. It’s cold. There’s no Picpoul until February. Now is the time for some pampering!

Last week I was lucky enough to dine out at Duck and Waffle (http://duckandwaffle.com) in London; the highest restaurant in the UK. The food was seriously delicious and the views spectacular. As we dined we were looking down on the Gherkin and Tower Bridge and in spite of the rain it was stunning. It was also an opportunity to get dressed up. I didn’t want to do the whole dressy jeans thing (see New Year’s Resolution #2), opaques didn’t feel dressy enough and it was too cold and wet to be travelling on the tube with bare legs so I went for a leggings/dress combo. The asymmetric dress was a sale bargain from All Saints and the wet look leggings and pink suede boots completed the look. It’s not the clearest picture but hopefully you get the gist.

What I’m wearing: Dress: All Saints | Leggings: H&M | Boots: Next | Cuff: Jaeger

And these are the tiles. 40 floors up.
