Vivienne Westwood and St Davids Christmas


Chase Potato vodka
Our lovely mixologist from Kapu Lounge and the British Chase potato vodka - you must try!!

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a VIP Reception of the St Davids Christmas Shopping night and also have a sneak peak at Vivienne Westwood's new arrivals. As always it's great to meet up with other bloggers, catch up and see whats new in Cardiff. The VIP Reception had a casino theme with some amazing drinks by the lovely staff at The Kapu lounge who mixed some Chase (potato) vodka with flavours like Rhubarb for some interesting cocktails. There were tons of events going on in St Davids 2 for the launch of there Christmas Shopping nights and before I attended the reception I popped into The White Company to pick up some slippers for the little man,  they offered  their customers bubbly and mince pies - nothing better to get you in the christmas mood.



After having a quick look around the other stores in St Davids we all met up again at Vivienne Westwood were the staff showed us the new collections which included some amazing luggage, hats Duffle coat and scarfs to name a few - all on my wish list. As always I love how Vivienne Westwood has brought the punk movement to the mainstream and all that filters through her different lines, as well as her political stand point, something you don't often see on the high street/designer side of things.

I really love these pin badges, perfect as a stocking filler, I want the Climate Revolution one as it's something we feel strongly about in our household. The staff were really informative and accommodating and had some lovely canap├ęs on offer, as we browsed the lovely array of bags, dresses and creatively design socks.

Vivienne Westwood bag


The Navy Mini Utility Case seen above is made in Hertfordshire on original Victorian machinery, formed form 14 layers of specially bonded "vulcanised fibreboard" each is riveted and lined by hand and it's really nice to hear a large designer is using local craftsmanship as we really don't utilise the UK based skills base enough and it really is an exquisite bag.

As always was lovely to catch up with some other bloggers which is a real perk of being a blogger is making real life friends and being constantly inspired by them. I love Chantele from Daisy Days and Leanne from a Slice of my Life
