The Perfect Christmas Gift No.1: Clippy Bags

Hello lovelies!

This post is going to be the first in a series entitled 'The Perfect Christmas Gift?' (hence the 'No.1') Hope you like the idea! I just get so overly excited at this time of year, I thought I would give you all a 'running commentary' of sorts following my Christmas shopping adventures.

If you watch my YouTube videos, you may have already caught a glimpse of my new favourite make up bag from Clippy.

If you have never seen Clippy bags before, you're in for a treat! These ingenious yet super simple designs allow you to get your creative juices flowing and design your own favourite bag!

I had such fun choosing the photos to put in my make up bag and although the final product wasn't the most original... I LOVE it! They are double sided, but due to one side having a picture of the boyfriend (who refuses to be put online) you'll have to use your imagination!


I absolutely love the idea and with Christmas approaching, these bags really do make the perfect gift! I've already customised one for each of my best friends as I think they make a really unusual, yet thoughtful and most importantly affordable gift.

Here's a slightly more fabulous example, taken from the Clippy website:

They start at just £10 and are available online at ClippyKitLondon.co.uk and in selected Boots stores. What's more, the lovely ladies at Clippy have been kind enough to create a voucher code for you all!

If you enter the code FLEUR20 at the checkout you'll get 20% off your entire order. They also sell a range of stationary and lots of stickers to help you customise your bag.

Clippy were also lovely enough to send me one of the Jumbo Wash Bags (shown above, worth £16) to give away to one lucky follower this week. It's got 12 pockets for you to fill and is large enough to fit all your overnight essentials! (shown below next to mine for comparison)


If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is:

1. Be a follower of my blog
2. 'Like' my facebook link (below the follower box to your right!)
3. Write a comment telling me what's top of your Christmas wish list this year
4. Don't forget to include your email address so I can get in touch if you win!

Good luck!

Fleur x

  39. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year!!! My most wanted thing this year, is a pair of leather boots to wear with skinny jeans/leggings and ironically, a new makeup bag as mine has suddenly become too small!

    I was shopping with my Mum last week and we went to Sephora and I was contemplating buying the Sephora Favorites Glitz and Glam but she told me that it was something "Santa" might bring so I wasn't allowed to!

    The Clippy bag is sooo cute! I would love the chance to win one!

    Thanks!

  42. So many things on top of my christmas list. First and foremost the most cliche, that my family is all safe & healthy & that we have a lovely christmas dinner just like every other year! Besides that beauty wise, I'd love to get the NARS Pleasures of Paris Palette as well as the Lancome Artliner. OR EVEN better just a Sephora gift card in general!

    Top of my Kissmas list is a new hairdryer. I havent asked for anything too fancy just one that actually has a nozzle that stays attached (i think mine has disappeared into the magical Narnia world underneath my bed and has become invisable) and also one that doesnt cut out when it overheats!
