I want...

So, i've been a naughty girl... I should be saving for 3 reasons, a) christmas is around the corner, is always an expensive month and I have a lot of presents to buy (plus I have a new god-daughter to add to the list)  b) I have my eye on a new handbag which usually spells trouble for my bank balance. c) I got a parking ticket a few months ago which I forgot to pay (or mention to the boy) and they have lovingly informed me  that I now owe them £165. Anyway i've bought a new bag - to tide me over until I get the bag I really want of course.

Topshop Boxy Holdall Bag £36

I've also been virtual shopping online and have a selected a few pieces to add to my wish-list starting off with the beautiful Pashley Penny and then adding the outfit i'd wear riding it!

Chic Cycle Helmets for me and my pink Pashley Poppy

So for the past few years (4) i have been cycling the streets of London without a helmet because, and it shames me to admit this, i couldn't find one that was chic or pretty enough!!! However, this has all changed. There are so may beautiful options out there that i don't know where to begin so i thought i'd do what i always do in moments of indecision and write a list.

My personal favourite (even though it is currently sold out) is £74 from Velorution

This one is a Sawako Furuno at £68 and is from the lovely  Cycle Chic

Or at £60 this lovely one from Bobbin

Or a bit of bling, agin from Bobbin at a bargainous £35 which also comes in silver which i think is possibly my second favourite helmet of them all.

I concede that with winter coming i do actually need a helmet but i'm tempted to wait for the leopard to come back into stock. I spoke to cyclechic and they are operating a waiting list which gives me some hope. I've now got 5 winter coats / jackets and it just so happens that the leopard print would go with all of them! Watch this space I suppose. In the meantime, i'm off to ebay with a wish and a prayer...
