ClaireaBella Designs and Toxic Fox

Being a Claire and having many nicknames including ClaireaBella means I am always looking out for personalised items which have a meaning to me.

I have always admired ClaireaBella designs as I am a massive TOWIE fan and I always see the girls on the programme strutting their stuff with one of the ClaireaBella bags!

To purchase a personalised ClaireaBella bag is difficult and I tried for 12 months with no luck because they are so popular!  But when I heard that ClaireaBella had teamed up with Toxic Fox I knew I was guaranteed to be able to buy one.

It's been on my wish list to purchase one for ages, but I have never gotten around to it and I was planning on treating myself for Christmas and then I was contacted via Twitter by Toxic Fox and was asked if I would like to receive one of the ClaireaBella bags to review and I jumped at the chance! 

How Claireabella Started

ClaireaBella was born from massively humble beginnings. She was born as a character based on Claire Barratt the founder of ClaireaBella designs.
The story starts with a trip to Paris with her then boyfriend, now husband Mr ClaireaBella (Jon). 
They had a drawing done by an artist in Place du Tertre, near to the bottom of the Sacre Coeur. Claire loved the way the artist captured her eyes.  The way he caught her eyes on paper was a true representation of her and she loved it.
 Claire painted her first jute bag inspired by the painting and the first ClaireBella bag was born!

The cute label on the bottom corner of the bag

I adore all the glitter and the diamant√© eyes - its beyond cute!

Loving the pink bows!

The size of the bag is slightly smaller than an IPad, but it is a great size to carry your lunch in!

So adorable that it comes with a little charm saying "handmade with love"
You can buy these beautiful Jute bags by clicking 'Here' by looking at the website my bag would retail at £24.99 but I cannot find an exact match for it.

You can order these bags directly from both Toxic Fox or from the Claireabella Designs Boutique but stock is limited from the direct site so be warned! 

Here are some other ClaireaBella Designs you can purchase through Toxic Fox

There are so many ClaireaBella Designs to choose from on Toxic Fox and they really do make great Christmas gifts!
