To celebrate the new baby Prince George of Cambridge, a group of bloggers (including myself) are raising money for one of Kate Middleton’s patronages EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.)
Our most recent fundraising activity is a “Pippa Middleton themed” charity auction lot on eBay. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to EACH (we’re using eBay for Charity.)
Two brands worn by Pippa have kindly donated items for us to put in the charity auction. So a big thank you to LOGUE London and Argent of London for sponsoring us! I have also donated my spare copy of Celebrate, signed by Pippa Middleton. (You may remember I was super fortunate to receive a personalised signed copy from Claudia Bradby at Christmas this year, addressed to me! Very exciting! So I’m donating the copy I bought before that!!) It’s in brand new condition.
Chance to grab an absolute bargain!
The auction lot is a great opportunity to pick up a bargain – the combined value of the goods retails at around £440 ($670) but bidding on eBay is currently £99 ($152) – plus we’re kindly offering free shipping too if you’re in the UK or USA!

The lot includes:
#1 – LOGUE LONDON - SONIA DRESS
Pippa has worn a couple of items from LOGUE London, including the “Bella” dress to a Beyonce Concert and the blue silk “Emma” shirtdress when shopping in London’s Chelsea neighbourhood.
Pippa hasn’t worn this ‘Sonia’ dress, as it’s part of the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection – it is not available on the brand’s website until the end of August. You can get it exclusively from us, in this lot!
It’s a dress that would suit Pippa beautifully – I’d expect to see her wearing it in the future!
