    Who would you invite to your dinner party?

    I would invite Big Ang from Mob Wives.I admire her unwavering confidence, flamboyant style and she's hilarious. She sadly passed away last year but she was the life and soul of any party.

    My top 3 hair care tips: 

    1. Have fun with your hair. No matter what length hair you have there are so many fun ways you can wear it. Look at YouTube for tutorials on how to style your hair.

    2. Good blonde hair is unbeatable. The perfect shade of blonde can take time to achieve, especially if you are transitioning from dark hair.
    Persevere and look after your blonde hair and the results will be worth it.
    A professionally coloured blonde in great condition looks expensive.

    3. Towel-dry your hair before applying conditioner, it's a simple one but you will get so much more benefit from your conditioner by doing this!

    What is your perfect pizza?

    My perfect pizza is Chicken BBQ from Papa Johns but I am also obsessed with Papa Johns special garlic dip!

    If you ruled the world, what’s the first thing you would do?

    I would make guns illegal everywhere.

    Happiness is…

    Being curled up on the sofa with my fiancee and dogs watching trashy tv with a Gin and Tonic.

    Your best pick of Mimi & Thomas products is

    My best pick of Mimi and Thomas products would be the Verity Leather cross body purse. I love the unique design with the option of detaching the two parts. It's so
    versatile as you can use it as an everyday practical purse, a classy clutch
    or simply combine them together as a crossbody.

    Name: Rachel Bowler

    Occupation: Model


    Hope Charity Fashion Show at Leicester Bentley

    My morning beauty regime...
    I cleanse, tone and moisturize every morning without fail.

    Which models did you look up to when you started?
    I love models like Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Karlie Koss who are doing other ambitious things along side they're modelling, they're focused girls and I think they're great role models.

    How do you stay in shape?
    I love walking in the countryside because its what I've grown up around, I most enjoy weight training.

    Soundtrack of my life
    This is hard because I can't go a day without listening to music. If I had to choose one song that's Guaranteed to make me dance, its 'I bet you look good on the dance floor' by Arctic Monkeys.

    Your dream holiday
    Another hard one as seeing the world is such a dream, but it would have to be somewhere extreme like seeing the river dolphins in the rainforest. I love adventure holidays.

    Your best pick of Mimi & Thomas product is

    VERITY leather cross body because its so smart and diverse and I love the shape. It's the perfect day to night bag.

    0 comments / Posted by Janet Carlisle

    I cannot believe it's already 30th November. A very quick re-cap for the last few months it has been quite manic over here. As we started collaborating with fashion bloggers we are gaining more exposure on the social media and our lovely cashmere and clutch bags are warmly received and excellently styled by many fashion bloggers both UK and overseas.


    October highlight was definitely our participation at the Leicester Fashion Week seeing our pop up stalls in a few beautiful venues and Mimi & Thomas cashmere and clutch bags proudly accessorised our new sister brand True Cashmere collection on the catwalk. Follow us on Instagram/ Facebook @truecashmere



    In November we have been invited to a number of glamorous charity fashion events locally in Leicestershire, all fizz and fashion! What a fantastic opportunity to meet our customers as we are an online based retailer. It's lovely to hear our customers feedback, get to know them more which is wonderful.



    Well well well 1st December tomorrow and we are in full christmas spirit officially, with our S/S 2017 collection being produced we cannot wait to share with you!!

    If you have not yet got that clutch bag sorted for the upcoming christmas do or is looking to treat someone that perfect kitten-soft cashmere wrap, then look no further, click to shop and treat yourself some lovely items from Mimi & Thomas.
