Sunday Specials: 08/08/2010

We have a big Sunday Special's for you today! 

Firstly, Amy at Forever Curiouser passed on an award!! Thank you so much Amy!! I absolutely love her blog: she has amazing style and great music taste. I wish I could pass the award onto her again!

I'm going to pass the award onto:
Tasha from The Hot Spot (because she is so lovely and amazing)
Tanvi from The Fabulous Life of the Not-So-Rich and Famous.
Dena from Pretty Little Things
Elaine from Clothed Much (for having super style)

Marie Claire is doing something really interesting in hounour of London Fashion Week and the launch of their September Issue. They've teamed up with British designers (Alice Temperley, Clements Ribeiro, William Tempest, PPQ and Felder Felder), who will each be designing a tote bag, which will be available free with the September Issue, which went on sale on the 5th.
 (This is an example of one of the bags: it's the PPQ one).

Marie Claire are hosing a 7 day event: ‘Marie Claire – Is It in the Bag?, which will run from the 9th-13th August. Each day will be dedicated to a designer and there'll be an exclusive competition on the Marie Claire Facebook Page, which will ask readers to post pictures of themselved with one of the 5 designer bags. Marie Claire will pick 10 of the most stylish readers and then Facebook fans will have to vote for their favourite of that day to win the prize.

It's so easy, all you have to do to win is become a fan of the facebook page and then post a picture of yourself, with one of the tote bags free from the magazine, and get people to vote for you. You can also follow Marie Claire on Twitter.

All the prizes are as follows, with a total price of £3500 and you can find out more on their website.
William Tempest: T-shirt and goody bag
Felder and Felder: 2 Cuffs and 2 Belts  
PPQ Dress
Alice by Temperly: Coat, T-shirt and Scarf
Clements Riberio: Dress and T-shirt

(The William Tempest T-shirt, Felder & Felder Cuffs and Alice by Temperly Scarf: All up for grabs)

As you can see from our sidebar, we're also part of the Kickers Blogger Programme, which means that we get exclusive looks at any new designs and content.  We got an exclusive look at their AW 10/11 campaign and I was very impressed.

Here are my favourites from the collection:


These boots are seriously awesome. They've added a twist to the military styling of their Kick Hi and mixed it with the original crepe style outsole. Each pair of leather boots is hand dyed and washed, and come with a full leather lining. I am seriously looking to get a pair of these.


Each pair is very individual, while still maintaing the synonymous heritage of Kickers and gives it a very vintage feel. Again, each pair is individually hand dyed and washed to give it it's true heritage look. It' also has a leather lining.

You can see their video that goes with the campaign here

They also have a great Feelgood rewards system, which is great for any budget-conscious fashionista, especially those going back to college/university. You can claim some great prizes with every Kickers purchase that you make. 
One of the big rewards, the platinum reward, is a big one: you can win a package worth over £10,000, which will include a family trip to Florida, and unforgettable experiences, such as kayaking and an everglades safari.
Other rewards include family days out and DVD's, as well as great rewards for parents, including spa days for mums and HD Video Cameras for dads. Kickers have partnered with brands such as Nintendo and philips and you can get more information here.

Finally, don't forget to enter our competition

Hope you all have a great Sunday! I'm recovering from a sore throat :(
