There are a few shops that the Wife’s husband* has banned us from (or at least tries to ban us from going into).
The first one is Hobbycraft, of course, especially after the wedding because we had no real need to go in there (Ever had an arguement over what thickness card to buy? Or which fake rosebuds are better looking? Thank you Hobbycraft, because I have).
Next up is Cath Kidston, because omg omg omg FLOWERS! Its so beautiful and country kitchenesque and I do actually need another cake stand, because this has flowers on and my other one is just plain glass.
Of course, the worst shop is the Mulberry store. The Wife and I have a slight obsession with handbags and shoes, and quite dangerously, the Mulberry outlet store is about a 5 minute drive from her house. Its also on the way from her house to mine. This is obviously a sign that we should go in there a lot more and spend lots of money.
Somehow I skipped right past this article on NYLON earlier this month. Mulberry teamed up with Apple to produce some of their more iconic bags in sizes more suitable for MacBook Pros and iPhones.
Look at this beautiful Bayswater bag – if I ever managed to own one, I’d probably put my MBP (because this is a world where I have a MBP and a Mulberry bag) in a case inside the bag, but with this version I wouldn’t need to. Ooh, and its a bargainous Ã‚Â£650. Who doesn’t want a laptop bag that costs almost as much as the laptop itself?
(This is not me dropping hints at all. Ahem.)
Perhaps slightly more affordable are the iPhone cases, tiny versions of pretty bags for a mere one hundred and fifty of those English pounds I never have enough of. I do actually need an iPhone case, as the plastic Air Jacket I have at the moment developed a crack after a few months and is currently covered in Sellotape and is affectionately referred to as the Ghetto Case. (Honestly, noone wants to go near my iPhone because it looks like crap! Click the cover off though and its lovely, unscratched and shiny shiny!)
If anyone who is reading this would like to buy me one of these cases, I love the silver Daria and the navy Bayswater ones. Ta v much.
More information on the Mulberry and Apple websites, of course.
* His name is Nathan and he is one of the most awesome and bravest and ace people I know. Even if he is using the Wife as a beard.
Oh wow, I am in such lust for Mulberry! Might I ask exactly where this Mulberry outlet store exists??
Its in Shepton Mallet, right opposite the giant Babysham deer! (this actually makes sense if you’ve been there)
When you get to that world with the MBP and the gorgeous handbags, can you invite me as well please? :-D
