Flights of Nancy


I don’t know how correct it is to call an inanimate object beautiful, but in the case of this leather holdall I was sent by Flights of Nancy it is the first word that springs to mind.
Owner Natalie got in touch with me a couple of weeks ago, after a mutual contact hooked us up. I was instantly smitten both with her charm and website which not only sells these stunning holdalls (£90) but a whole range of high quality leather goods from purses through to messenger bags, such as the “holy bejesus it’s yellow” version show above (£60).

“Flights of Nancy started life 18 months ago. Inspired by the leather and batik bags we discovered in our travels across Indonesia, we began working on our own designs in partnership with small family-owned businesses in the region.
Today, we’re proud to produce ethically-sourced, hand made leather holdalls, messengers, shoulder bags, satchels, clutches, and an array of batik bags. Our leather goods are all hand dyed using vegetable-based colouring, while our batik products are made from recycled fabrics”.

You can buy the range from the website or via ASOS marketplace

Being the sweetheart that she is, Natalie has offered readers of adaisychaindream a fantastic 10% discount code for her shop; simply enter 4CU60DB0HAUV at checkout (the code has NO expiry date and valid only through Flights of Nancy website).

You can also win your very own leather holdall, worth £90 in a colour of your choice by leaving a comment on this post stating your favourite item from Flights of Nancy and a way for me to contact you.
The giveaway is open to UK residents and will run from today through to Saturday 14th July at 6pm.

Good Luck folk, trust me, this is a good one!




What an amazing response to the Handbags at Dawn giveaway!

I’m pleased to announce we have a winner, and that winner IS

*drum roll*


Congrats lovely, I’ll be in touch shortly!


It’s always lovely to get a surprise in the post, especially when it comes as prettily packaged as this Spinning Ring from Timothy Roe
I love rings and I am slowly but surely amassing quite a collection of them (the new tights?!) and this four leaf clover fits in perfectly with my preferred jewellery style.

I have a massive wishlist for the website, next on my list are the glitter heart, star and humming designs. At £19 each these are an affordable way to build up a jewellery collection and can be worn alone or stacked together. I also think they’d make a lovely gift for one of your best friends…*hints for Christmas guys!*

Which design do you like?
Where do you get your rings from?

You can’t beat Timothy Roe for Bespoke Jewellery in my book.

I’m sorry guys, I know you hate how much I make you window/actually shop with my latest discoveries, but I have yet another one to shout about!

Wild Doll boutique offers quirky clothes, statement shoes and an array of accessories at super affordable prices with worldwide shipping! After only a brief browse, all of the above items are what has already made it’s way on to my wishlist…the best part?! Nothing featured here costs over $30 (in fact, not much on the site does!)

If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself; and report back on what you fancy!


P.S. Last 24 hours for the Handbag giveaway!

winning tee, Matalan skirt, Sam Edelman shoes via Stanwells Re-run.

I could pretty much live in this outfit, it’s so comfortable, I’m definitely making it a mission to get the mint green version of this skirt in the near future.

I struck gold with these shoes, I was lucky enough to win a gift voucher to Stanwells Re-run a few months ago and whilst browsing new arrivals I spotted these babies in my size; that’s the only problem with pre-loved goods shops, the lack of sizes! I can’t wait for better weather so I can get decent wear out of them.

The t-shirt was also a prize from around the same time when I won a Motel gift voucher. Sadly my winning streak has since stopped, but I won’t stop entering competitions and giveaways!
Speaking of giveaways, mine with Handbags at Dawn ends tomorrow so get your comments in!

Do you enter a lot of competitions? What has been your best win?
