Kate-Spade-NY-Stacey-wallet-get-gifted-2016-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell At the start of the holiday season, I always turn to my favourite brands for Christmas gift buying.

Kate Spade NY is one of my all time favourite brands ( Say I, with the huge colourful collection of Kate Spade handbags!)

The thing is, there is no such thing as leaving empty handed once you step foot into that store.

I feel like a kid let loose in a candy shop. Pay day is Kate Spade day!

So, it was such a lovely surprise to be sent a Christmas gift from them this year, as part of their #getgifted campaign. Kate-Spade-NY-Get-Gifted-styled-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell The #getgifted campaign is all about personalising the gift, adding that ‘that’s so her’ twist which makes it unique to the recipient.

The persona of my gift was ‘She’s a work of art and likes to look at it,too’ and comprised of the Cedar Street Stacy purse, the Holly Drive compact ‘Kiss and Tell’ and the Live Color Fully fragrance.

The wonderful UK team of Kate Spade NY chose the perfect purse for me. It was my favourite bubblegum pink and now I can display all those beautiful and creative business cards I have collected.

That compact mirror will definitely come in handy for when I apply make up on the go.

The fragrance with its top notes of mandarin, pink water lily and star anise is simply divine.

I’m loving the idea of the #getgifted campaign. Last Saturday, I got to show the lovely customers of Kate Spade NY in Covent Garden, London, how to personalise their own gifts with ribbons.

I created two types of bows, the stacked bow and the floral bow, both in the image above.

I’m proud to say that they were all made from scratch. It was so much fun creating them and I’ve now lost count of how many I’ve made.

One thing for sure, with so much practice, I can now create them in a matter of minutes.A good skill to have for this festive season right? Kate-Spade-NY-Get-gifted-London-styling-and photo-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell Last but not least, the £200 Kate Spade NY gift voucher giveaway.

Little-Big-Bell-work-space-1-photo-and-styling-by-Geraldine-Tan I’ve been wanting to show you my second work space for quite some time now. This weekend was the first in a long while that I wasn’t working at the hospital.

It was also lucky that the sun decided to peek through those thick Winter clouds, allowing me to shoot with my DSLR camera.

This post consists of two areas of the study. There will be a part 2 and 3 of the study to come in subsequent posts.

So here it is!  A pastel palette of pinks, peach and yellows, complimented by accents of copper and gold.

Hay-denmark-Little-Big-Bell These storage boxes are from Hay of Denmark. I really like how the copper cookie cutter draws the eye to the peachy tones.

Scout-Editions-bird-postcards-featured-on-Little-Big-Bell These beautiful bird postcards were given to me by my Instagram friend Pui of Scout Editions. Aren’t they adorable?

Little-Big-Bell-workspace-photo-and-styling-by-Geraldine-Tan I absolutely adore all things Kate Spade and there will be more to come in my next workspace post. This paper tray with its gold tinted mirror has been one of my most treasured finds. I love how it reflects and shows off the pretty patterns from my stationery.

Little-Big-Bell's-workspace-photo-and-styling-3-by-Geraldine-Tan Talking about stationery, have you checked out Studio Sarah’s new collection? I’m loving that grey grid card with gold corners that she sent me.

Kate-Spade-paper-tray-photo-and-styling-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell More reflection play against the tray mirror. Been practising Calligraphy with my new pen.

Stationery-Little-Big-Bell A palette of pinks and grey blues here before a slight change in colour tone, as I show you the recessed shelf area nearby.

Rise-art-M-L-James-Little-Big-Bell's-study Here it is! Brighter pops of colours with the metal accents as before.

The print above is by Lisa James from Rise Art, an online art platform that sells original and limited edition prints. They even have a ‘try before you buy’ service.

Mid century modern home decor with bright colours are very much in fashion at the moment, this print perfectly embodies that trend.

Kate-Spade-polka-dots-photo-and-styling-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell The trays from Hay provide endless fun as the inserts can be moved around to form different permutations of colour.

Kate-Spade-candle-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Love the polka dots, gold and inspirational saying on my Kate Spade candle. These are such perfect Christmas gifts for friends.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post. There will be more of this study to come in the new year.

My next post will be a Christmas theme.

Have a great start to your weeks.
