Ally Capellino is one our great treasures at Bloomsbury & Co, we love the understated simplicity and functionality of every item. From launching her first womenswear collection in 1980 Ally has has stayed true to her Britishness and now has two shops of her own. Going back to her fashion accessory roots her bags, wallets, purses and belts have won her many fans.

Classic styles that you will come back to time and again.
Ally Capellino's AW13 collection takes on some really moody colours for this season, giving a great contrast to her light summery collection with its sea blues and mustards. The classic frame bags are all hand made in London with a factory that is unique in the UK. All use beautifully grained Italian veg tanned leather and feature the Ally Capellino Cockerel motif. Any item from the Capellino collection is guaranteed to last you a lifetime and will always be a classic.

It's Nixon Time!

Nixon watches came into being 15 years ago as a reaction to the lack of quality and choice available on the market. They now consider themselves a game changer in the market who can "deliver what you need in various high stress work and play environments" with "a network of athletes, rock stars, retailers, and dedicated loyalists that bring Nixon products to market. They are absolutely committed to every last detail ensuring that what you get is the very best and will reflect your values, style and character.

Our collection of watches has grown each season as it's popularity demands us to expand colours and styles. New in this season we have the new version of the Unit 40, we were smitten with the original design but this new sleeker design has us falling in love all over again. And the ever colourful Timeteller's will have you re-considering your outfit to match your watch!

With something for everyones taste's from the traditional and super functional to the brightest fashion colours and hard wearing timepieces you won't be disappointed with Nixon watches in any way. View our online collection here or come in store for more!

Rodgers and Rodgers Jewellery Sparkles

Rodgers and Rodgers was started in 2010 by Lynn and Kate Rodgers in rural Derbyshire. All their jewellery is handmade using 22ct gold vermeil, 925 sterling silver and carefully selected semi-precious stones. Their jewellery is simple, elegant and timeless. With an ever expanding range of gorgeous semi-precious stones at the heart of the collection we have a hard time keeping a favourite. Currently at the top of our wishlist is this sublime Astrid gem bangle.
We think the pure simplicity of each item speaks volumes. The beautifully faceted stones allow the colour to really shine through and who couldn't resistant stacking these rings together?

 Mix and match your colours across a range of styles of rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces. Each made with the utmost skill and attention to detail. The studs have become a best seller (not only with us in the office!) with such a great price starting at £15.95 in a rainbow of dazzling semi-precious stones. We have a great selection online but if you can make it to our Bloomsbury Store in Bath then a bigger, brighter collection awaits you!

Don't be Sensitive

We love the new focus on specifically designed face care ranges from Burt's Bees and the new Sensitive range has been a revelation to us Bloomsbury girls. With the super soft cotton extract running through the collection you can wave bye bye to redness and irritation after cleaning away make up and wake up happy to fresh glowing skin.
The cotton extract will help your skin replenish its outer layers that can get stripped away when using harsh soaps and irritants. It will also soothe any redness and the rice extract and aloe will boost your skins moisture levels. The whole range is fragrance-free and as always only the most natural ingredients are used.

The new facial cleanser towelettes have been our favourite from this range as they are perfect for taking away on holidays and weekends away. Knowing you can always clean away dirt, oil and make-up at the end of the day with these tucked in your weekend bag is bliss! An added bonus to the wipes are that they are made from FSC approved natural cloth so absolutely everything about these wipes is gentle. You can view the whole Sensitive collection here!

We'd love to know what you think of the Burt's Bees face care products - you can leave us a comment here or email us at

Burt's Newest and Brightest Range

We love Burt's Bees at Bloomsbury (the kind with 6 o's love - loooooove). Ever since we discovered Burt's we've stocked the whole range in our lovely little shop and just can't get enough of it. So we're super thrilled to get their new Intense Hydration range in stock.

The collection includes the basics you would expect to find in any facial care range with cream cleanser, eye cream day and night lotions and a lovely new treatment mask. The range takes its inspiration from the Clary Sage a botanical ingredient which is known to tolerate harsh Mediterranean climates. For use on dry skin these products will help promote your skin's own ability to retain moisture whilst helping to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

The treatment mask has us most excited as it's a totally new product from Burt's. Use this for an instant skin boost and revitalise your skin with moisture. It can be used once or twice a week and will give you a relaxing 10mins to yourself whilst it gets hard to work.

The lotions are sublime to use, not greasy at all and are scientifically proven to provide your skin with intense hydration (when used in combination with other products in the range). As always only the most natural of ingredients go into making each product so you can be sure of what you are putting onto your skin.

You'll love what you see when you try the new Intense Hydration range from Burt's Bees. Click here to see our collection!
