daisybutter - UK Style Blog: cupcakes, what i bought, mulberry, tillie french purse


Just over two weeks ago saw the opening of Mulberry's Winter sale on their website. In true me fashion, I've been hopping on and off the site since the 24th, and last week after being paid, I decided to take the plunge and treat myself to a post-Christmas splurge. I bought the French purse from the Tillie collection - which is still swoonworthy - and seriously love it. It replaces my broken River Island purse, and is more 'grown-up' than my Gucci one, with much more space to play with. The gold hardware is so pretty, and is the perfect contrast to my Petticoat White/Rose Gold Alexa, so I'm over the moon with the latest addition to my obsessive collection.

Also, in nearly related news, I woke up this morning in a post-One Direction haze to find my Mama had baked me these beautiful beyond beautiful cupcakes! I mentioned to her last week that my blog would turn two on Sunday, and while I was off out masquerading as a 15-year-old, she made me some daisy, Chanel and Mulberry cupcakes. Eeeek. She actually runs a cake bar/boutique alongside our other businesses, and you can order cakes and cupcakes for collection or delivery in Hertfordshire, so if you're about, give her Facebook page a little add!

For now, I'll leave you with two of my favourite images from the Mulberry SS12 campaign.

    I like you have been doing the same - I just haven't plucked up the courage to buy anything ! I love mulberry myself but have always just been a looker and not a buyer ! xx

  7. Ahhhhhhh those cakes! Why do i live a million miles away?! :(

  8. There is so much I would love to buy--but I just can't justify it at the moment.
    The things I love the most though aren't in the sale which is so typical!

    I remember getting my prada purse it was gorgeous ad there was no better feeling than putting all my bits and bobs in it, I still love it so much! It's weird how with somethings the excitement never goes away, I bet it happens with your Alexa bag, it happens with my bayswater, and I hope your new purse gives you that exact feeling!

  9. These cupcakes are seriously the cutest things I have ever seen in my life.

  10. Those cupcakes are beautiful - she is so good at decorating!

    And lucky you! I really need a new wallet at some point, I'm lusting after one in Kate Spade at the moment!

    And the pictures from the Mulberry campaign are beautiful, right? I want to find some nice big versions to have as my laptop wallpaper - Tim Walker is one of my all time favourite photographers!

  12. Mulberry have released a 'Rosie' bag, and now done a Brighton (where I live) campaign shoot... I think they're trying to tell me something... like I should have a Mulberry bag?! lol
    Those cupcakes look amazing, your mum is very talented!

  14. Those cakes look absolutely scrummy! And loving the mulberry purse, despite having some money, I don't know if I can warrant spending on mulberry even in the sale! So much love for it though, seriously jealous!

  15. Thank you! Eeep, I know, so nice, I'm scared to eat them, I just keep taking photos ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Aw thanks Courtney, I'd just really rather spend my money on 'luxury' things once in a while, that last and are classic than lots of cheap stuff every week! (:

    ReplyDelete
  17. She bakes the best cakes, I'm excited to eat them, but haven't quite managed to let myself eat the Chanel sign yet! Their full SS12 campaign is beautiful, seriously amazing style direction (:

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes indeed ;) My spending habit needs to stop - immediately!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aw you totally should, best decision I've made in a while! xx

  20. :( I vote you move to London pretty sharpish! xx

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aw, hopefully you'll be able to pick something up soon! I love so much from the new SS12 collection, just going to have to suck it up until I'm in a stable job and can afford to splurge all the time (: Aaah I still feel like that with my Alexa!

    ReplyDelete
  22. So sweet of my Mum to bake them! She gets more excited about my blog-related things than I do!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'll pass that on to her ;) Ooh Kate Spade pieces are just beautiful! I had the press release images sent over to me, already popped one up as my desktop and it's made me want to visit Brighton!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha I think so too, Rosie ;) Fate is trying to send you a message!

  25. Thanks Jennie! So pleased that I managed to save enough to buy something so pretty on my own (: It's so buttery soft. xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks Franky (: Oh gosh, I just have no self control, and I did "need" a new purse after my last current purse tragically broke haha! xx

    ReplyDelete

  29. Those cupcakes are adorable! Every time I see beautifully crafted cupcakes I have an urge to go bake some myself.
    WHY must Mulberry produce such gorgeous things? That bag with the zebra print is the sort of thing I'll obsess over for weeks!

    ReplyDelete
