I'm in shock about it being March already! It's always a busy month for us with three family birthdays, a long weekend for St Patrick's Day and this year, Easter falls in March. But before all that fun, don't forget that it's Mother's Day on Sunday! My mum always insists we don't make a big deal about Mother's Day and says every year 'Now don't be buying me anything'. But we still do. I know I'm lucky to have my mum about so there's nothing wrong with celebrating it and giving her a treat or two after all she has done for us.
So just as I was wondering what to get her, look what arrived in the post from the guys over at Debenhams. A gorgeous Bailey & Quinn leather handbag.
This model is the Bailey & Quinn Cream Embroidered & Appliqued Pocketed Grab Bag, currently available on the Debenhams website with 20% off.
I'd not heard of Bailey & Quinn before but could see the similarities to Radley and the quality is very much up there with Radley London. The stitching is immaculate and the detail beautiful.
As well as grab handles, the bag has a removable shoulder strap that can be extended to make the bag work as a cross body. This is good for my mum who likes to keep her hands free when she's out and about.
Overall, I'm impressed with the quality of workmanship on the bag and it has useful details like a key clip so you don't lose your keys in the bottom of your bag, mobile phone pockets and two zipped sections either side of the main pocket - great for paperwork and receipts.
I'm off to the post office now to post this down to Mum in time for Sunday. I'm seeing her in April to celebrate her 80th Birthday so I'm not going to make it down for Mother's Day this year - the downside to living so far from parents :(
Oh, and she has no time for computers so is unlikely to see this...just in case you were wondering about that!
