betsy-johnson-bow-clutch.jpgHow exciting as I said in another blog, Betsey to me was not well known, it was only because of the many magazine pictures with Betsey clothes on American stars that I knew about it.

Now it’s become one of my favourite designers and I am ecstatic that there is a 20% voucher available to print out on the website to take in and use in the Covent Garden store in London. Browse online to see if you can find anything you fancy then either phone through to ask if the store have it or take a risk and be in with the chance of being inspired by something else. They have plenty of accessories and bags in the store I love this Betsey Johnson Bow Clutch pictured here. Online it’s available for $98.

The 20% off voucher is available online under exclusive-London store promo on the main page and is valid on full price merchandise excluding accessories. It expires on the 31st of March 2008.

benicassim.gifI’ve got festival fever this year and that might be the result of having far too many festivals to choose from.

The Benicassim Festival is from what I hear one of the best for hard core dance/electro fans and indie/pop fans. Think about it, this is the perfect place to take a vacation with your friends, located between Valencia and Barcelona in a small beach town called Coast De Azahar in Spain. Enjoy the sunshine and lazing on the beach during the day and get down to some immense partying in the evenings through till dawn. Expect performances from dance acts such as Armand Van Helden, Simian Mobile Disco and The Rapture to indie acts such as The Klaxtons, Arctic Monkey’s, Muse, Kings Of Leon and The Hives.

The festival takes place between Thursday 19th of July through till Sunday the 22nd of July with a huge free beach party on Monday the 23rd. Get your tickets through costing £140.05 plus a transaction fee for a four day ticket with camping. Visit the festival website for more information and day ticket options.
