Shopping And Wine (Maybe Some Sewing)

Tokaree Bag Lisa Comfort

It’s the May Bank Holiday here in the UK, which puts me in a shopping and wine kind of mood! Here’s a run down of items I can vouch for, having selflessly put all of them to the test. Yes, even the wine.

The Tokaree Bag

Have you seen Lisa Comfort’s latest initiative? Phewee! When she’s not having first babies she’s setting the entrepreneurial world on light. As soon as I saw the Tokaree Bags I ordered one (a medium pink), picked it up from the sorting office, tore off the wrapping, carried it to Walthamstow Village and filled it with goodies. That’s how excited I was about this bag.

It’s really bright, really sturdy and now lives by the kitchen door, brightening up the room and ready to grab when I dart to the shops. Mine is a medium and it’s large enough to carry groceries.

ToksViscokss Backpack

Talking of bags, my new lifestyle means regular darting into Central London for meetings. Sometimes I’ll take my laptop. But it’s a biggie at 13 inches wide, and most backpacks aren’t large enough to accommodate it. So I was delighted to discover this and my sister bought me one as a birthday present. When I say discover, I mean I tapped a stranger on the shoulder and asked where she’d bought hers. Sometimes, it pays to be brazen.

I couldn’t love this bag more. Light, soft and sturdy it makes hefting my laptop around almost a delight. Almost.

Camel Valley Wine, In Vino Veritas

In Vino Veritas Wine Club Cornish Wine

Wine! This is the last bottle to be shared by In Vino Veritas. A Cornish wine and – swoon. It was really gorgeous. If you’re popping along to the dog show at Lloyd Park May Fair (brace yourself for dog spam on my Instagram feed) you could pick up a bottle for your picnic. It’s crisp and dry and this was my favourite of the wine club, along with the Carusu. Sadly, this bottle marks the end of my affiliation with In Vino Veritas. Wot, no more free booze? What am I going to drink now?

FUN FACT Christian Louboutin recently visited our little local wine shop.

Maybe I should turn my attention to sewing instead. Perhaps I can finish my latest make to wear to the fair…
