Its Not Me Its You, London

The weather is as decided as Twitter is about that "conscious uncoupling" thingy. It thinks it should be Spring for a minute and then decides, nah sod that, let's tell Spring that it's an idiot. Yeah, because we know what it is like to be a season, and stuff. I imagine Paltrow to be a mild day with interspersed showers, you know, doesn't bother me whatsoever yet can be slightly annoying but only if a shower comes just after you hung the laundry out on the line. Plus, their conscious uncoupling is a hell of a lot better than the many unconscious couplings that occur every Friday night up and down the country. In any case, she put the notice up on her website and the media went mental, on both sides. Who does she think she is versus Leave her alone she has only ever had a positive message to give. Basically, for both camps it was good fodder and to be expected, as she was half of a global power couple and she has thrown her opinions - or showers as I call them - into the public domain.

Now, like the clocks on Saturday, let's move forward, si si? It is that time of year that we start gearing up for festival season. Yes, we have been looking at our tickets now for over six months but with the clock change we finally start to feel the buzz. On this note we have some quite pleasing news, for us anyway and hopefully for the INMIY festivalheads amongst you. Right, we will be at both Glastonbury and Boomtown with our wares. And we have been busy getting some new designs and slogans ready for the occasion. Basically, our philosophy was quite simple: what is both a functional yet aesthetically pleasing piece to wear whilst in a mosh-pit? Obviously we recreated the conditions in our laboratory and Jems got to bounce about to a blasting radio. Needless to say, I think we have come up with some good stuff. (Sorry, Pearl, for all the noise last week!). We will keep you updated on developments. Yes yes oh yay!

The next bit of news is not really news just that we are, with time, getting a bit more organized. Basically, Tuesdays will be the day that new stuff will go up on the website. Every Tuesday, Jems will have a batch of stuff ready for me and I will photo it all and upload. Of course, if there are any delays or changes I will let you know but our new plan seems pretty damn steadfast so all should run smoothly.

Finally, the website will be one on the 17th of April. We may do some online giveaway but I just wanted to, once again, thank you all for coming by and interacting with us virtually. When I asked to manage the blog and site I never thought I would like doing it as much as I do. So, thank you.


p.s. And let's remember there is only one winner in the Paltrow story, that "guru" chap who came up with the new term for divorce and will have many failing couples jump on the bandwagon.

Be the first to know about new stuff going up here. We promise to only send nice, useful things that we feel you need to know about.


Its Not Me Its You is a brand of leather stuff to carry other stuff, made and printed by hand in East London. Each piece comes with a slogan. Set up in late 2012 we pride ourselves on the quality of the leather, the craftsmanship and the foil-embossed slogans. Your bag is a statement, we believe, and with a 'Its Not Me Its You' bag you will be making that very clear for all to see. You can find us here and in Topshop (London).
