Dear Santa Grumps,
I have been a really good girl this year. Points in my favour include ...
- I've done a bit of real walking in the countryside rather than pounding the pavements of Leeds
- I made my first apple crumble ever - no mean feat from the woman who can burn water.
- I've tried to keep my joggy bots wearing to a minimum and in the house.
- I've not yet succumbed to a fleecy onesie (but by jove, it's getting ever more tempting)
- I've never once asked you to change the cat lit.
oh yes ...
- The children haven't disowned me yet and still call me mum.
So please can I put the following on my Christmas handbag wishlist? I also thought now might be a good time to let you know that there may be other wishlists to follow, like footwear wishlists, coat wishlists, jumper wishlists etc. It's only right that you are forewarned.
Starting at the cheaper end of the scale should you be a bit hard up this year, I wouldn't mind one of these classics. It's kind of light and fits a bit of shopping in along with the usual necessities. I was hoping it might make me look a bit more put together than some of my little shopping totes - it might actually make me look totes amaze!
But if you're feeling a little more flush, I'd love one of the leather versions. A messenger strap wins me over every time because you know how I need to keep my hands free with my two scallywags. It's nice and understated isn't it?
And I also saw this one from Whistles which I am rather taken with. It's like a grown up posh version of my tatty bag and that is looking a little worse for wear these days. Cue violins and much sobbing.

... but if you're struggling to track one down as there are none left on the Whistles site or on John Lewis, you could try ringing round the stores? Just thought you could do with a heads up should you have any problems. But if you're really really struggling, you might like to know that I really like the grey version too. Honestly, I don't mind either one :o)
Or if you were thinking of something a shade cheaper - just so you have some money left to fill my lovely Jo Malone leather Christmas stocking, I'm quite partial to these seventies styled bags. I had a play in Jigsaw with it so I can honestly say, I do like this and really appreciate the fact that someone must have heard me moaning about the buckle on my Zatchels bag because they made this one with a magnetic catch.
And this is sweet. Yes it's the Chloe rip-off but honestly, I had my eye on a cream Zatchels saddle bag last year before I gave in to the navy. I had a play with this in the store and it is just perfect and would look so lovely against all the grey jumpers I have. I do love a bit of grey and cream together.
And if money was no object, I'd like to include this .....
The perfect dark and light bag. Lush beyond lush. Good thing it's not me choosing eh? It's your choice darling Santa Grumps at the end of the day but any of these would be welcomed with open arms ;o)
Anyway, I just thought that would be helpful. Be back with another list soon.
Last Note :
- The tatty bag is getting very tatty. Time for an upgrade.
- There might be a part 2. There might not. I'm quite forgetful.
- You might have noticed that I would like either a black bag or a pale coloured bag. There seems to be a theme here doesn't there?
- What bag(s) have you got on your Christmas wish list?
