The Cherry Blossom Girl

ime to swoon! Have you heard of French blogger The Cherry Blossom Girl? Alix is a photographer and fashion designer who loves things like fancy tights, frilly dresses, twinkle lights and glitter.

It’s one of those blogs that you can just melt into and zone out completely in a happy daydream of cotton candy beauty. I especially love her set of HOME photos.

Her travel photos will make your little heart yearn to hop on a plane. The Cherry Blossom Girl is my latest obsession!

Milchmaedchen Offer for decor8 Readers

Every serious small business lady needs a stylish bag, don’t you think? I have a plain Jane black nylon bag (ashamed to admit) but I’m considering dropping the cash to give myself a bag that doesn’t scream COLLEGE KID. Before signing off for the weekend, I want to mention a special promotion that Irina from Milchmaedchen in Hamburg, Germany would like to offer to decor8 readers until the end of October. It’s especially useful to readers looking for a well designed, good looking laptop bag made especially by business women for girls on the go.

If you recall, I visited Irina in her shop this past August and wrote about it here, her shop is so nice and it is exciting to have her in nearby Hamburg because I find her style very good and her products well chosen. The special offer that she’d like to extend is a 10% discount to decor8 readers (and free shipping within Germany, if outside see details below) on a brand new collection of stylish laptop bags designed by German designers Miriam Paschmann and Anja Heinz of Haikouella.

To view them click here and then look for “unterwegs mit laptop” in the left column. The website is in German but within the description of each bag Irina has an English translation.

I don’t know about you, but finding a stylish laptop bag is nothing short of a nightmare for me. I can’t seem to find anything that looks professional yet has some character… something unique about it, a pattern that is subtle but definitely noticeable. I think Haikouella does a nice job at being stylish, grown up, yet fun.

Re: Shipping — Shipping costs differ from destination to destination (within Germany shipping is free, within EU: 15.- Euros; Overseas: United States with DHL logistics within 10-12 days: 32.- Euros/ within 6 days: 45.- Euros). Orders from the U.S. and other countries outside of the EU need to be processed individually so please order via email and let Irina know that you found this offer on decor8. Contact Irina: shop AT milchmaedchen-design.de. Offer good until October 31, 2008.
