Alphabet Bags X Selfridges

Posted on 31st January 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

We were thrilled to have been asked to produce a makeup pouch for Selfridges' Valentine's Day Beauty Box this year! There are two gift sets available, one perfect for a loved one and the other perfect for treating yourself!

Our sturdy natural canvas makeup pouches have been filled with fantastic beauty products, including items from Molton Brown, Lord & Berry, Starskin, Zelens, Tonymoly and more! For just £35 you can get products with a combined value of over £118! Available exclusively at Selfridges. You can check out the I Heart You and I Heart Me beauty boxes here and here!

In addition to designing the pouches for the beauty boxes, Selfridges also asked us produce a collection of Valentine's and Anti-Valentine's themed makeup pouches.

Whether you're feeling super loved up or happily free and single, there's a pouch for you! The pouches are made from sturdy natural canvas and printed using bold colours including some lovely sparkly glitters!

Happy Birthday Aquarius!

Posted on 23rd January 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

Happy Birthday to all the awesome Aquarius' out there! 

If you need a birthday treat for an ace Aquarius in your life or want to treat yourself check out our embroidered Aquarius pouch! Each beautiful zodiac constellation has been embroidered in white cotton on a heavy black canvas pouch, complete with a black metal zip and canvas zip pull. The pretty starry background continues around the edge of the pouch and onto the reverse, where the name of the zodiac sign has also been embroidered.

Exciting News!

Posted on 13th January 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

It's been a stupidly long time since we last blogged but one of our resolutions for 2017 is to start our blog up again and actually post stuff! So what better way to start than with some news.. 

Alphabet Bags is growing! We've got a very exciting new addition in the works.... 

Baby number 2!

We (Lucas & Hayley) are expecting baby number 2, launching July 2017. As you can see our daughter June is REALLY excited about it!

Not gonna lie, it's been a difficult few months with morning (all day!) sickness, an energetic toddler in the office and the chaos of the busy Christmas period. But it's a new year, things are a tiny bit less crazy and we're really looking forward to the summer and becoming a family of four! 

baby number 2!

We're planning not to find out the sex again, although June has requested a baby brother! Either way we're in real need of some good name suggestions please! And also any tips on how to cope when doubling the amount of children you have....

July seems quite far away but we're sure the months will fly by. In the meantime we've got a busy few months ahead working on lots of new products, from a brand new collection of pin badges, to lovely new wash bags and new additions to our wedding collection.

Here's to a fun-filled 2017! 

Hayley & Lucas
