Next Day Delivery. To Belfast!! How long have we looked at those promises in the UK mainland and seethed with envy? Well now Next is making them for real and I'm inclined to be a little excited about it.
So, it's 8am on a Tuesday morning and, while most people are still in bed or rushing off to work, the lovely people at Robinson & Cleaver are feeding us our breakfast and showing us their offerings for Christmas at the launch of the the new Next Belfast Delivery service.
There are gorgeous candles, baubles, snowglobes, festive salt and pepper shakers, cuddley toys, and much more.
Owls and Deer were the creatures of the day which suits me fine.
I couldn't help thinking of the Wizard of Oz when I saw these cute children's shoes. If I had a child they would definitely be getting them!
Of course we couldn't leave the clothing out. They had everything from winter warmers to your party season glitz and glamour. My favourites were this tartan mini skirt and metalic grey pleated mid length skirt.
Bumped into the gorgeous Aoife from www.BellaMalone.com trying on this faux fur coat. Should probably point out that it's from the kids range, though she's looking fierce!
The three ginger amigos! Myself, Nic from www.strawberryblondebeauty.com and Rebecca from www.bexberry.com
I had such a lovely time at this event and really wish the Next Belfast team all the luck for the new service. We definitely need more of this in our wee corner of the world!
