Back to school with Cath Kidston


Back to school has never looked so vintage, so kitsch, so incredibly cool.

Hands up very high I am one of the many women who love Cath Kidston.  I own several pieces of this iconic English fashion brand and will no doubt continue to indulge my love of it for years to come.  It is pretty, feminine, girly and makes me hanker after living in the countryside and having a pair of Hunter wellies and a Barbour jacket with my French Bulldog Vivaldi.

It is because of my love of Cath Kidston that I am delighted to share with you this totally cute (and yes you’ll need a hanky) video to celebrate their range of back to school bags which have landed just in time for the new school term.

So, when I told her that AHAVA have just launched their own AHAVA eBay store which sells a fantastic range of their skincare and anti-ageing products she was really keen for me to show her what was on offer.
