It was the ‘Mum’ print above that they bought from Jealous gallery and print studio.
It fits in perfectly with the colours of my workspace and so in line with my aesthetic. It makes me happy that I will be seeing this every time I sit at my desk.
As it is mother’s day today, I would like to introduce two very special guests.
First up is J, my 14 year old daughter, who will be blogging with me today and possible monthly.
What makes me delighted about this, is that when I first set up Little Big Bell, the intention was to blog with my daughter. Her Chinese middle name means Little Bell, hence the name Little Big Bell. Me being Big Bell.
My second special guest is the talented artist Kristina Hultkrantz of Emma Kisstina, who has illustrated the contents of both J and my handbag. She is one amazing lady and you will see what I mean soon. You can read all about her here.
What do I carry in my bag? The stethoscope is unsurprising, since I am a full time doctor. However, I do tend to leave it at work most of the time.
Missing, is my DSLR camera, which I was using. What’s wonderful is that the Hayden bag is big enough to accommodate it.
I now carry a pink pen for a reason. I’m not sure why, but as doctors working within the Accident and Emergency department, the most commonly lost item is one’s pen. Perhaps it’s because all our pens look the same and so may be picked up by mistake.
So far, the pink pen has lasted a month and is still going strong.
I don’t wear my Pop and Fizz shoes at work, but I always keep a comfortable pair of flats I change into after work, as I do a lot of walking rather than driving.
I’m also adoring my Bobbi Brown Pot rouge which can be used for both lips and cheeks.
Now, to reveal Kristina’s beautiful drawing of my bag and its contents.
Kristina is able to do custom drawings of your bags and contents too. Here is the link to her Etsy shop.
Anyway, without further ado, I hand the keyboard over to J now to tell us about her handbag and its contents.
My pink Eau de Parfum bag is from Next. I think pastels are very much in fashion this season. As well as being useful, it is a super stylish accessory!
My Ted Baker purse again follows the pastel trend. The rose gold clasps on the purse are a favourite! Shimmer and shine was a predicted trend at the London fashion weekend catwalks, I saw a lot of Rose Gold.
My eos lip balm above is a no brainer to keep in my bag! It is one of my favourites for fresh minty lips.
Here is the beautiful drawing that Kristina has done on my daughter’s bag and its contents. I was so excited when she sent me the two finished drawings. It is always such a pleasure to discover and promote amazing talents. Thank you so much Kristina.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the post today. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
