What does it all mean?

Prince George Christmas presents

The royal family are undoubtedly the most talked-about people in the world, with the millennial royals – known as the Fab Four – and their families making the most waves.

Yes, the budding Sussex family and the Cambridges are accustomed to a great deal of fame, making them vulnerable to the dreaded rumour mill.

It emerged last year that Prince William and Prince Harry created an ingenious way to stay under the radar during their adolescent years, an example that the young Prince George seems to be following.

Both William and Harry are reported to have employed code names during their early twenties, allowing them to be spoken about under the radar by their inner circle of friends and keeping relationships private.

Their choices? Prince William went for ’Steve’ and Prince Harry went a little more curve ball, opting for ‘Spike’.

Yes, Prince Harry is referred to by some people as Spike and it’s hilarious.

But it wasn’t the Dukes’ nicknames that made news this week, instead it was the next generation, with Prince William’s eldest son, five-year-old George, reported to be going by a pseudonym already.

According to The Sun, a dog walker was approached by Prince George in Berkshire, where he was playing with his grandma, Carole Middleton and Princess Charlotte. But he didn’t introuce himself as Prince George.

‘I was asked by a police minder not to take a photo of the children, which I didn’t, but George started stroking my dog,’ explained the dog walker who has chosen to remain unnamed. ‘Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it.’

She continued: ‘To my astonishment he said “I’m called Archie” with a big smile on his face. I don’t know why he calls himself Archie but kids often play with their names and I think it’s lovely.’

It is thought that like his father and uncle, the name ‘Archie’ is most likely to be a security measure, but then again, as the dog walker pointed out, he could just be having a bit of fun with his moniker.

Either way, Prince George seriously suits the name Archie.

Sharing a Slice

I feel like I haven’t really gotten out much lately. Which would explain my lack of blog posts! I always struggle to feel inspired in January, the high of Christmas is over and us Londoners are left with the drab reality of drizzly streets and a vitamin D deficiency. This year I have even more […]

vegan handbags

At the British Fashion Awards, Meghan Markle said that whilst it was once ‘cool to be cruel’ in the fashion world, it was now ‘cool to be kind’.

Major labels such as Chanel, Gucci, Burberry and Tom Ford have pledged to stop using fur and exotic skins in their collections, while others are making a conscious decision to only using leather as a by-product to the food industry.

However, more and more people are now going one step further and turning to products that don’t use leather altogether, and if you’re in the market for a vegan handbag, there are plenty of chic designer and affordable options out there.

Vegan designer handbags

It’s impossible to mention vegan designer bags without mentioning Stella McCartney, who’s been pioneering ethical fashion her whole career. She is one of the only designers who only uses vegan leather throughout her collection, for example made out of recycled plastic from the world’s oceans.

Of course, you can buy fabric and faux leather bags from most designer brands which aren’t exclusively vegan across board, though they sometimes use non-vegan products such as animal-based adhesives. Some great designer options include Jill Milan, Poppy Lissiman and Arran Frances, who are launching their first cruelty free collection in March, with a view to soon being a 100% cruelty-free and animal-friendly leather, with a focus on sustainability through longevity.

Vegan leather handbags

Contrary to the name, we’re obviously not talking animal skin here, but different materials made to look like it. According to PETA, ‘most vegan leather is made of polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order. It can sparkle, have a nice glossy sheen, or be saturated in all kinds of shades.’

Affordable vegan handbags

Because real leather is expensive, vegan leather tends to be more affordable, especially if you look to high-street brands. Matt & Nat, Doshi, Wilby Cluth and LaBante all have great sub-£100 clutch bags, backpacks, tote bags and more.
