You may remember that a few weekends ago I went to Girls Weekend
in Colchester. This was an event which was greatly advertised however not all it was cut out to be. It was advertised as being a great shopping experience with 100’s of stalls, things to eat and demonstrations. Well yes there were demonstrations – most of which I really enjoyed, especially my private cooking demonstration (with my good friend Miranda and another guy we had meet there) from Celeb Chef Mark Baumann, there was actually only 1 stall selling food (other than cake stalls and olives etc) but there was a bar so that was fine!!
The stall holders actually paid a lot of money to attend and told that thousands would be attending – far from what actually happened.
I actually enjoyed myself however as I went to speak with the stall holders. I met with a lovely lady Sarah who was selling gorgeous handbags and accessories.
Sarah’s online store is Izzyboo and not only selling online she offers home parties. There are fantastic host rewards for holding a party in the comfort of your own home – you can choose any product of your choice – handbag, necklace, scarf it is entirely up to you (any product – any value) Then you can choose up to 4 half price items of your choice depending on the end customer sales. No boring sales pitches just chance to browse in your own time, with your friends and at prices starting from £6 there really is something to suit everyone.
Sarah offered me a handbag of my choice and here is what I chose:
Red Bessie Shoulder Bag £26.00
When the bag arrived I was very surprised at the size, it is a lovely large size. The detailing on it is eye catching and original with a faux belt effect in brown leather, which is knotted and finished with a very cute heart accessory. It also comes with a storage bag for your bag!!
Just to show you how large this bag actually is I will show you inside this bag after I have been using it for a few weeks, come on girls you understand just how much you carry around with you:
From left to Right: Sunglasses, notebook and pen, bunch of keys, book, purse, lip balm, train ticket, Emmy’s juice cup, receipt, invitation to the Bloggers event for last week, Prada travel perfume, lipstick, Links Bracelet, 2 size 5 nappies and a bag with fold up pumps in (left in since last week – travelled into London in pump and changed into heels – secret is out) – so for part of the journey it contained high heel shoes – no nappies though.
I tend to use this bag instead of my changing bag now – unless going out for the day.
If you would like to book a party and take advantage of the fabulous rewards as well as sharing these great products with your friends, please contact Sarah using the contact form here.
Sarah at Izzyboo has kindly offered one of my readers a bag of their choice from her website!
