On 13th I was lucky enough to be invited to Paul's Boutique Christmas Launch Event

As you know I love PB, I love their new direction and their stunning range of bags and accessories and their new range doesn't disappoint. 

The event was held at Westfield, London and the Searcy's Champagne Bar in Westfield's Village next to Paul's Boutique's Pop Up Shop there. 

Being a country bumpkin I've never been to Westfield before, I was blown away! What a fantastic place to shop and what a fantastic setting! I was also blown away by the stunning Christmas decorations and lighting so if you're near Shepard's Bush Station any time soon, be sure to stop off at Westfield, and pop into The Village to see PB's amazing #NewDirectionPerfection selection! 

(Poet and I didn't know it!

See my PB #NewDirectionPerfection blog post here, and my AW14 Exclusive Styled by Charlie blog launch here. 

The event began at 6 at the stunning Searcy's Champagne Bar where other bloggers and I mingled with the amazing company that is Paul's Boutique and all the amazingly genuine and adorable employees that make up the amazing company! 

Searcy's was decorated in Paul's Boutique Balloons and Look Book images for all passers by to see, in close proximity to the PB Pop Up Shop

It was also lovely to see Paul himself, to have the brain and face behind the amazing brand there with us all was great to see, and just highlights what an gorgeous close knit, genuine company Paul's Boutique really is. 

It was great to learn how involved and appreciated each member of the team is and years on that Paul's is very, very much involved in all the decision you hope the brains behind the brand always is. 

It was lovely to meet up with some of my Blogger friends from previous events and meet new bloggers too, as well as mingle with everyone else who attended and talk Blogs, Handbags, Beauty and Fashion

I loved our cute little event area at Searcy's with the absolutely perfect champagne Christmas tree!

Yes, a champagne Christmas tree! 


Now, for what you've all been waiting for... The collection! 

I fell in love all over again, with bags I've not seen in the flesh before, and new pieces that are just divine

One of my favourites in the collection have to be the new real leather and suede collection with some stunning monochrome styles which are like for forever bags, those bags you dream about and when you come to touch them are even better than you imagined! 

What I love about these bags is how versatile they are, fair enough they're slightly higher pricesd than your average bag however they're not an average bag! 

They're that versatile bag for life that is designed to perfection to suit all tastes

There's a larger bag and a shoulder style envelope front style which to me is that perfect functional bag that perfect if you're a busy be or like to travel lightly. 

I think this collection is fabulous for Paul's Boutique and truly shows their new direction to its full potential. These are the bags that will make your Mums cool, the bags your mum won't be scared to approach or feel to old to love, they're perfect for a wide range of ages, tastes, styles and occasions and they are FAB-ulous

Paul's Boutique have also brought out another fabulous print range and what better than a snake print? 

The perfect combinations of print and plains with stunning details

One of my favourite things about the new PB ranges is the detailing, so many of the new collections have such exquisite detailing and on this particular range they have the most amazing subtle statement of gold studding which frames the print and makes it stand out.  

These designs are a combination of subtle snake prints with statement studs or statement prints and plains. 

Other styles feature studding too, such as this gorgeous beige bag with studding side panels with that subtle statement of studding and let the colour and finish be the statement rather than the accessory detailing.

However, with more of a statement there's the other design with a central studding design in more of a barrel design. 

I love how PB have taken detailing to an amazing level in so many different style options to suit everyone. 

Many of you will know how much I love fur, and how much of a must have it is this season. 

Fur is so on trend this AW and Paul's Boutique are not letting us down with some stunning Faux Fur Bag designs for us to channel are inner animal with matching with our winter essential fur coat and fur booties. 

Paul's Boutique are also offering more of the PB favourite finishes in different colours and design too! 

One of the PB favourites and best sellers are definitely the patent finishes and Paul has bought out the most gorgeous nude tone in some new patent designs. 

But it's not just the big statement bags available at the PB Pop Up Shop in Westfield's Village, the is much, much more from Paul's Boutique.

Such as their amazing selection of unique and functional designs such as their Reversible Clutches and Shopper Bags with a statement side and a subtle side for you to have a bag you can rely on for many outfit choices, such a FAB idea! 

With smaller bag options too such as cute holdals and satchels in prints, patents and colour pop designs perfect if you're a light traveller or a small bag kinda girl. 

Not only are PB offering bags but accessories as well with their new range on must have Leopard Print Scarves in two tone designs with monochrome a and plains, one for everyone with that must have animal print this season. 

With most of the PB bags also comes a Paul's Boutique Keyring in many designs, which bring out certain aspects of the design be it neon tubing or a colour zip matching all the pieces together. 

But you don't have to wear your Keyring on the bag, remove it and clip it to your purse for a clutch handle design or to your car keys to spread that PB love across your daily accessories. 

The Paul's Boutique Pop Up Shop is located in the perfect place at Westfield and so easy to find, with (in my opinion) the best selection of PB on show with bags, scarves, satchels, clutches, purses, phone cases, iPad cases and more

You're guaranteed to fall in love with the designs just like I have and purchase some and add the rest to your Christmas list

I was so lucky to be gifted with a bag of my choice from my amazing Paul's Boutique Christmas Collection with the hardest choice of choices! 

However I could not resist the Animal Print Maisy Bag that is perfect this season!

And what better to store my new PB baby in than the biggest, biggest paper bag I've ever owned! 

So when I got home I couldn't wait to photograph my new PB baby and show you all to include in my event post... 

The Maisy shape is the most popular Paul's Boutique shape that you're probably most familiar with however I only own Molly bags so I was really excited to own my first Maisy, and what better than Animal print combination? 

The gorgeousness of the large snake print against the small in different shades make the best contrast with the stunning studding detailing breaking the prints, this bag is just to die for

I cannot wait to style this bag with some distressed jeans, fur jacket and some winter chelsea boots for the perfect AW14 look

Not only have Paul's Boutique added accessories to their amazing handbag range, but they've recently brought out a range that it totally my September/October/November/December and all of 2015 favourites.. That is the all new Paul's Boutique Beauty range! 

So excited! 

PB Beauty is amazing to die for makeup bags, false nails, nail wraps, kits and the most amazing brushes

I have the large black leopard print makeup bag and brushes; Powder, blusher, foundation and my absolute favourite, they eye shadow brush

The makeup bag is the perfect size to be a makeup or cosmetic bag or even your weekend away wash bag that even fits shampoo in it too. 

The brushes are my favourite brushes on the market at the moment at such affordable prices and they're so pretty too! 

They're coral and white with a two tone brush and the softest, softest ever! 

The eyeshadow brush is my favourite brush I've ever used, I've never been confident with applying eyeshadow before but the Paul's Boutique shadow brush gave me the confidence to experiment with eyeshadow. 

It's the perfect size and perfect for blending and layering eyeshadow to create fun looks and great to build natural tones to make the perfect smokey eye!  

You can buy PB Beauty in store or online at Superdrug and you'll just fall in love with the amazing designs and amazing must have beauty buys.

I had such fun at the #PaulDoesChristmas Event and it was so nice to be invited to a FAB event and lovely to meet and mingle with new Bloggers too!

So be sure to check out PB's New Christmas Collection as well as their new direction collection if you haven't already, because there are many, many, many pieces that are totally to die for!
