Bags of style and practicality from Kipling


Well, one week on from my last blog it’s still blustery and grey outside. Come on, spring you’re well overdue now! Still, the cold weather has been a good excuse (for me, anyway) to get plenty of comfort food on board! Once the weather gets a little nicer I’ll be grabbing my Skechers for some calorie-burning epic walks in the great outdoors.

Luckily, Kipling bags are great whatever the weather. I love my Kipling accessories for so many reasons. They’re lightweight, they wipe clean really easily, there’s a place for everything so you can stay really organised and I love the variety of styles they have to offer.

The Kipling brand originated in 1987 and have become a global phenomenon in the world of accessories. They’re great everyday bags but they first came into their own as travel accessories. In fact, the brand was inspired by Rudyard Kipling, a keen traveller and author. The adorable monkeys who feature on the bags were inspired by “The Jungle Book”, one of his most famous works. The monkeys themselves are named after Kipling employees and the baby monkeys after the babies of employees. How cute is that?

I’m lucky enough to be launching Friday’s Today’s Special Value at midnight on Thursday. It is a design based on a QVC bestseller and for a very good reason. Kipling are celebrating 15 years on our wonderful channel! Our customers absolutely love the Cyrille and have been asking for a larger version so we have worked with Kipling for many months to bring you exactly what you wanted. It’s a capacious offering with 30% more space. This bag has been made especially for QVC and isn’t available anywhere else. Not only that but the price is fantastically reduced until midnight on Friday. You may find you want to get more than one as the price is so good!

We have a gorgeous range of colours in this premium fabric bag plus the monkey is the updated, modern pom pom monkey. Overall, a really stylish look but, for me, it’s not all about looks. This bag really packs a punch if you’re like me and take everything but the kitchen sink wherever you go!

When I go to work I often take my food in with me in my Lock & Locks and my trusty Thermos flask. I also have lots of make-up, a book to read if I’m doing my commute by train, my iPad goes everywhere with me and I can’t go anywhere without my good old fashioned paper diary! This fits everything in and then some! I think it’d be a super bag for travelling with, especially with all the compartments to keep you organised.

If you’re looking for a fresh new fashion look then we not only have our brilliant Kipling Today’s Special Value on Friday but I’ll be hosting an hour of MarlaWynne at 3pm and then at 5pm, we have our Catwalk Collection with lots of key looks for the season as well as expert fashion advice.

I’m extremely excited about a brand new premiere show tonight, too. Joules is a beautiful quality, great British clothing brand. We adore their country quirkiness in the form of great fitting jeans, Breton stripe tops, characterful jackets and even cute wellies. What we’ve never had until today, though, is an hour of their cosy sleepwear! That’s coming up at 7pm if you can make it.

It ties in very nicely with our Sleep Soundly campaign. We are featuring many absolutely wonderful ways to help you make the most of your sleep. Click here to find out more about how we can help, from anti-snore pillows to calming pillow sprays and the most beautiful and cosy aesthetics for your bedroom.

I look forward to having your company very soon on QVC. Thanks again for stopping by!
