Handmade in Heaven

Check out the latest STYLISA reviews

Mobile Pouch

I am a sucker for anything pink and floral, so as I soon as I unwrapped the mobile pouch, it was love at first sight. What’s great about this product (as well as the other products) is you can immediately see that care and attention that has gone into making it. You can imagine the designer crafting it – a real labour of love. The bright colours mean that it won’t get lost in my enormous ‘black-hole’ handbag. Soft to the touch and pretty in pink…what more could a girl want in mobile pouch. What’s makes it even more special is that each product came specially wrapped, with customised Handmade in Heaven labels…simply lovely.

Fashion Scarf
When I opened this, it occurred to me this scarf could potentially have several uses – a fashion scarf for ladies and a tie for men. I immediately started thinking of Summer (which during this dreary weather period, is certainly no bad thing). It put a smile on my face and made me wish that the warmer months would just hurry up and get here. Ladies, if you didn’t want to wear it as a scarf, you could wear it as a belt, attach to a bag or even convert it into an alice band. I will be wearing mine when I go to see Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland as it will be very appropriate to the occasion. It’s delicate and fruity…just how I like my scarves to be!

Sat Nav Case
When I saw this case, it immediately made me want to go out and buy a sat nav system just so I could use the case. It is cute, and girly and once again, you can see and feel the work that has gone into making it. I love the fact that I can choose my own fabric, and customise it, to give that extra special touch. Handmade in Heaven products are like fairy…sparkly and special.

Heaven in a Handbag – izzi bag

Oh izzi you’re so fine, you’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey izzi, hey izzi! Okay so I have altered the song slightly, but only in homage to the fabulous brand that is izzi bag, and rightfully so. Their latest collection is totally uber stylish. What makes them so desirable is the fact they each have their own individuality whilst being the height of style. If you are struggling to get through these last few miserable weeks of Winter, then an izzi bag is the perfect accessory to lift you out of your Winter blues and send you smiling into Spring/Summer 2010.

Not only are the bags gorgeous, but the brand has been nominated in the Shorty Awards, as one of the top six COMPANIES IN THE WORLD to be followed on Twitter…pretty impressive. What’s even better is that the bags have a really personal story behind them. The name was inspired by the husband of the brands owner and designer, Anne Agoren, whose izzi bag brainwave, came to her whilst she was on holiday in the far east. Having worked in the fashion industry for over five years, Anne has taken her expert knowledge and developed a collection that is both innovative and eye-catching. Furthermore, for every TIGI bag sold, a donation is made to an orphanage, set up in the area where Anne received her inspiration, for children who lost their families in the Tsunami.

Plus, a little birdie has told me that they are bringing out a collection of limited edition ‘world cup’ bags. So a note to all you guys out there: you can now involve your ladies in the coming world cup festivities, by treating them to a beautiful handbag, which will definitely put you in the good books, which for you will mean a few beers in the pub with your mates whilst watching the footie…provided you are in at a reasonable hour of course. or for stockists in your area contact
