Cath Kidston, MBE

Congratulations to our lovely Cath, who has been awarded an MBE for services to business in this years Honours List.
 It gives me great pleasure to know that a woman who has effectively shaped the lifestyle aesthetic of a nation is being recognised by the country that inspires that very aesthetic and Cath Kidston is an inspiration to every one of us sailing through the days on the wings of that which we are absolutely passionate about, and thoroughly committed to, no matter what life throws at us along the way...

In other Cath related news, dear little Stanley popped into my in-box to let me know that this month marks the beginning of the Cath Kidston Book Club.

Said Stanley:

"This month we are launching our brand new bookclub and we would love for our customers to get involved. Simply tell us about the books you love and why. The best reviews will then be printed in the Cath Kidston magazine and you could even have your favorite book with your review on sale in our shops and on our website. Simply email us your favorites at
Happy reading!x

Which rather joyously ties in with one of the first Puttery Treats on my all new Puttery Post programme: the twelve books of the New Year, with my choices being posted here soon...

Get reading my little HoneyBuns!
