What Mama Wore - Alphabet Bags


Mama Wears:
T- Shirt - One of my old designs
Coat - Dorothy Perkins
Trousers - Biba
Boots - Fly London
Bag - c/o Alphabet Bags

Autumn really really is my favourite time of year. Autumn and Spring, both so full of expectations and excitement of things to come. The weather in the UK at the moment is amazing, its sunny but crisp. I don't know if everyone would agree with me but I'm certainly not a big fan of being hot and so a T-shirt plus light jacket/coat is my ideal outfit combination. One of mine and Tom's favourite holidays ever was to Barcelona in February. One because Barcelona is of course a beautiful city and two because it was our ideal temperature, yep we don't really do sunbathing holidays.
Anyways I digress, this weekend marks the beginning of a week off work for Tom. We are planning on getting lots done around the house (including digging up the garden!) and a few fun things too. Tom is going to accompany me to some of our weekly activities (like Sing and Sign on Monday) which will be nice as I like the idea of him seeing what Wilf and I do with our days.
This weekend Wilf and I headed off to our local NCT nearly new sale..think that scene from Friends when Monica goes to the discount wedding place, hair pulling, pushing and grabbing..OK I'm kidding but only kind of. I did witness a women yelling at her partner to go get yet another bag whilst she guarded the table..That being said there were great bargains to be had, and with an NCT membership you got in half an hour before non members, I managed to pick up a large bag of toys and clothes for Wilf for a grand total of £15..the bargain hunter in me is still thinking about all the Fisherprice toys I didn't pick up..but I know I have to leave it..leave it Fritha, let it go..
The rest of the weekend has been spent grocery shopping, playing in thr park and doing bits and pieces around the house. Our local grocery store (The Sweet Mart) has the most amazing array of spices and interesting vegetables..if only I knew what to do with them!
Actually you can see a little clip of our local shop here (from a feature on The One Show, click 32 minutes in). They are the friendliest loveliest family run shop and always have a kind word to say or funny face for Wilf. I pop in there daily as I've always forgotten something!

Alphabet bags were kind enough to send me this tote bag from their Rob Ryan collection. It is the perfect bag to do my grocery shopping in style! I love it! I kind of want to buy a set of four for Wilf's room (to spell out his name) I think they would love pretty awesome hung on the wall filled with toys don't you think? Alphabet bags have been kind enough to offer Tigerlilly Quinn readers the chance to win any bag from their site! To enter just complete any/all of the below and good luck!

My favourite item in the shop is actually the 'L' bag in your pictures! I am a HUGE Rob Ryan fan (I once dragged my family all the way to Shoreditch to his shop when we were visiting London from Ireland!). Also, my name is Lily and I love things with initials on. I hadn't seen these bags before, they're so lovely. I really hope I win :)x

Ive always liked the little coin purses but after seeing you model the tote bag, I've fallen for that. Alphabet and Rob Ryan is a great combo.
