Fab Shopping

If you’re looking for a new place to shop online (now that we’re avoiding Amazon), check out the lifestyle website Fab. It’s quite new to the UK and sells a range of goods from fashion and homewares to last-minute gift ideas. Like this lovely necklace.

One thing the fashion and beauty panel discussed at the Mumsnet Blogfest – sorry I haven’t reported back yet, it’s been a very busy week – was blogging and transparency. How it’s wrong to receive freebies without flagging them up. Or not to declare payment. So, I have to tell you that this is a sponsored post. That I’ve been asked by Fab to go on an imaginary online shopping trip, to pick out my favourite pieces. And here they are:

I’ve always fancied a nest of tables by artist and Bauhaus professor Josef Albers. They’d fit in beautifully with the retro-modern vibe at That’s Not My Age Mansions.  Both our radios packed-in this week, so let’s add a new one to the imaginary shopping list. I’ve been listening to news via the computer but it’s not really working for me… 

Safe Radio.

In honour of Nicholas Ghesquiere – wonder where he’s going to pop up next? – lets include a keffiyeh scarf.

Maze scarf by Zuzunaga.

And I could do with a new rucksack. So let’s go for something vibrant and modern. Just like me, ahem. This one’s from Mandarina Duck.
