The Skinny Bakery was founded in 2013 by 24 year old home baker Mariella Forte – her passion has always been experimental baking! Mariella developed a range of lighter bakes and calorie controlled goodies made with veggies like beetroot and sweet potato, tofu, fruits and fat free dairy. She quickly gained the recognition of the likes of Whole Foods Market, Selfridges Food Hall and several high-end delis, gyms and health food retailers nationwide.

The cakes are freshly made by hand in the West London bakery, and shipped out nationwide everyday from their online store. (Have a peak here!)

We looove that we can munch on yummy baked goods and not regret it after! For a chance to try some of these delights head over to our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) and follow the competition directions! Oh and you could win a box of Portlebay Popcorn too! YAY! (This competition launches at 5pm tonight)

 

Meet the Meco Tote

It’s Day 5 of our advent competition and today we are introducing Catherine and Emma, two Berkshire based mums, and the masterminds behind Meco! These two lovely ladies together created the perfect handbag, which is not only super practical but also very gorgeous too! This fabulous creation is called a Meco tote.

The gorgeous Catherine and Emma

The Meco tote is a new concept in handbag simplicity. Made from silicone, each one of the six sumptuous colours looks fabulous carried by the hand or over the shoulder, and contrasts perfectly with the understated handles. It also has a hidden magnetic clasp which is an essential security feature. The tote measures 36 centimetres high x 30 centimetres wide x 11 centimetres deep, (excluding handles), making it the perfect size for every day use!

The Meco Bag

This enchanting tote wears unbelievably well; you can throw mud at it, pour coffee on it or even colour it in with felt tips and it will wipe clean with a little soap and water! It doesn’t scratch, fade or stretch and is harder wearing than leather. What a dream come true!

The Sea tote

Oh wait, there’s even more glorious news! The bag is 100% vegan and cruelty free,  and the silicone used to create the tote is a natural, sand based material which is recyclable. The PU handles are also less harmful to the environment and more durable than PVC – AMAZING!

We are in love. To be in with a chance of winning a Meco tote, pop over to one of our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) and follow the competition directions! BEST OF LUCK! (This competition launches at 5pm tonight)
