Fab Shopping

Jolita Jewellery.

If you're looking for a new place to shop online (now that we're avoiding Amazon), check out the lifestyle website Fab. It's quite new to the UK and sells a range of goods from fashion and homewares to last-minute gift ideas. Like this lovely necklace.

One thing the fashion and beauty panel discussed at the Mumsnet Blogfest - sorry I haven't reported back yet, it's been a very busy week - was blogging and transparency. How it's wrong to receive freebies without flagging them up. Or not to declare payment. So, I have to tell you that this is a sponsored post. That I've been asked by Fab to go on an imaginary online shopping trip, to pick out my favourite pieces. And here they are:



I've always fancied a nest of tables by artist and Bauhaus professor Josef Albers. They'd fit in beautifully with the retro-modern vibe at That's Not My Age Mansions.  Both our radios packed-in this week, so let's add a new one to the imaginary shopping list. I've been listening to news via the computer but it's not really working for me... 

Safe Radio.


In honour of Nicholas Ghesquiere - wonder where he's going to pop up next? - lets include a keffiyeh scarf.

Maze scarf by Zuzunaga.

And I could do with a new rucksack. So let's go for something vibrant and modern. Just like me, ahem. This one's from Mandarina Duck.

Why are we avoiding amazon? But I love the bits you've chosen here, especially that necklace!

Une Femme - Amazon haven't paid any tax in the UK. I've linked to a newspaper article about it.

Une Femme said...

Ah, OK. They did get away with that for a while here, but are now collecting and paying sales taxes, at least in my state.

I love FAB! Their customer service is top notch. They've gone out their way for me every time I've had an issue. And they work directly with the artists and small businesses. Can't say anything bad about my experiences with them.
