We sat, throughout December, biting our (in-need-of-a-manicure) nails, eagerly waiting to hear our fate - was it meant to be? Were we one of the chosen few? We can safely say, no, we were definitely not good enough for a Santa visit - it was, of course, the announcement of the winners of the SheerLuxe Online Shopping Awards we were wearing the carpet thin for. The fabulous online lifestyle magazine and directory holds an annual poll of the crème-de-la-crème of the online shopping world, with every category a girl could possibly dream of, from handbags to perfume and beds to chocolates! The best part of these awards, and, a great reason to be thrilled at being crowned a winner, is that the public have chosen their faves - so, we would like to thank our customers, admirers and avid followers for helping us win the Bed & Bath category.
Being an office of luxury loving ladies, we quite often find ourselves immersed in Sheerluxe.com, flicking through their "Hot Products", getting shopping list inspiration from their delicious recipes or signing up for the latest competition.
