Bag this Heavenly Headboard


There can be something very old fashioned about headboards. Say the word, and I bet you are imagining one of those upholstered Draylon affairs that used to lurk in spare bedrooms in the 1980s. That’s why we were so excited to see a fun new idea from one of our favourite HIBS100 blogs, H is for Home. It’s a headboard that isn’t a headboard at all, but a clever display of lovely vintage bags simply nailed up over the bed.


If you feel inspired to do something similar, then plan out your display carefully on the floor before you start banging in nails, make sure you measure your spaces accurately and think about an interesting mix of colours and shapes.

Of course, you don’t have to use handbags. You could choose family pictures in intricate frames, vinyl records or record sleeves, shoes or even books with colourful or decorative covers. It’s a beautiful way to showcase a treasured collection, and makes a really personal statement. The joy with handbags (apart from having a very good reason to buy lots and lots) is that you can take one down from its nail, use it for the day, and put it back up again in the evening.

A big thank you to Adelle and Justin at H is for Home for sharing. Pop over to their Pinterest for more great ideas and tweet us at @HIBS100 with your own inspirations.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
