Happy Halloween

Walking past Fortnum and Mason's earlier, i was curious to see the results of their annual pumpkin carving competition. So i popped my head in and was greeted by these beauties! Can you believe there was a £1000 F&M hamper up for grabs?! Definitely worth the inevitable stained orange hands and unavoidable carving battle scars.  Not sure who the winner was, but we'll find out soon, when their creation lights up the next window display. Major honour. Do you have a favourite?

An Anthropologie Christmas...

Yes, I know it's only October, but please don't freak out at the mention of the 'C' word...This is how things work in the retail world. Yes, it was a little strange to be munching mince pies and singing along to classic Christmas tunes at Anthropologie's press party last month, but for product like this, i'd listen to Cliff Richard all year round! But remember people, Anthro is not just for Christmas, they are hot all year round! Start making that list...
