Team Favourites: April Edition, Spring Selection

Welcome to Hope and Story’s Team Favourite’s Series, where we get together and shout about our favourite products.

April brings us many things, budding blossoms, chocolate eggs and a long bank holiday weekend. If you survive being fooled on the 1st, then there is nothing but enjoyment for the remainder of the month. Follow us as we discuss some of our favourite Spring products from accessories and clothing to perfume and gifts!

Lizzy – Director

‘Nothing makes me happier than a handbag; new, old, small, big, round, square – I do not discriminate; they are all welcome in my treasured collection.

The bag I am reviewing is by Brit-Stitch, their Milkman Satchel in Stormy-sea is what I would describe as a forever bag – a wardrobe stalwart.

It arrived in a lovely cloth drawstring bag, which revealed a very pleasing, well-made leather satchel – a long adjustable strap ideal for shoulder or cross-body and I was pleased to discover, an inside pocket – so no panic rummage for your bank card necessary and a colour that will go with absolutely everything.

I love this bag; I’ll enjoy it and I predict future purchases given the range and colours Brit-Stitch have to offer, there’s always room for just one more…’


Ellie – Digital Marketing Team

‘I love fashion, it’s what makes me feel great and show off who I am. Lielle womenswear is a brand that I love… the quality, the style, the colours, and the overall products are beautiful pieces. My team favourite is the ‘Milano Top - Ivory and Gold’. I received this top for my birthday, and it really is a statement piece… I received so many compliments and felt amazing within myself while wearing it!’


Grace – Digital Marketing Team

‘As a mum, I am always looking out for treats for my little girl that won’t result in a sugar fuelled meltdown. The Easter holidays can be a particularly difficult time to limit her surgery intake, what with the Easter bunny visiting and the never-ending supply of chocolate being gifted by friends and family.  I absolutely adore the ‘Easter Hunt Crayons Kit’ by ‘The Crayon Bug’. Not only does this product provide the perfect activity over Easter but the vibrant crayons and the wonderful colouring sheets are just beautifully made and well presented.’


Saffy Barclay – Account Manager

'A top pick for this month and season has to be the 'Caritas Eau De Parfum' perfume from 'Memoize Perfume'. The prettiest scent for Spring and Summer; If you spritz this in the morning, I can guarantee at least one person will ask you what perfume you’re wearing that day!’

Here at Hope and Story we are a small team who are diverse in age, lifestyle, and interests, but we do have one thing in common, we love to shop! We hope we have inspired you to go over to our store and treat yourself to a British made product.
