Look at My Leather Handbag Samples!






















This week I saw my handbag samples for the first time. I was so excited! I also saw that we need to focus on a few finishing touches.

Have a look!


Ode To My Linden Tree & Beautiful Buenos Aires





















I'm working on my handbag business quite a lot lately so I'm vlogging my journey. I hope you are enjoying following along!

One thing is for sure though. In this short video you will see a lot of autumnal trees in Buenos Aires, listen to great music, and the witness the evolution of my very own Linden tree during the course of one fall week.

Thank you for watching!

When Podcasts Bring Joy


If you are looking for a new podcast I have one recommendation for you: At Home With... And if you are going to download one episode, please try the one with Terry De Gunzburg, founder of By Terry. However, the last episode of At Home With... Lisa Eldridge was equally exciting.

I've been listening to these episodes in the car coming back from the school-run and I can attest they can transform a lousy day into a blissful one, and all in the comfort of your own home, or car in this case.

My favorite so far was the one with the founder of By Terry (but then again it's neck to neck with the one with Lisa Eldrige!) just because Anna Gardner (The Anna Edit) and Lily Pebbles were so genuinely interested in learning about Terry De Gunzburg's life and career that it shined through the whole interview/home visit. 

I grinned and laughed so much that I wished my 15 minute car ride lasted longer so I could keep listening to the podcast. Don't worry I listened to the entire podcast at home (twice!). 

It was especially interesting to learn how Terry De Gunzburg developed her iconic products Touche Éclat and Baume de Rose.

You'll find all this and more in this video. That, and my favorite lip combo. Oh! and I have a proper living room again, with a couch, chairs and all!

Enjoy!

May Favorites / Caudalie Premier Cru Update


I've been using Premier Cru by Caudalie for over a month. I understand now why people love this brand so much. It's made out of natural and good quality ingredients, and that translates into a better looking and feeling skin. 

It's all in my May's Favorites video. Have look!

Nailpolish Preference and Seasons

























I'm going through a rebellious phase. I'm currently NOT into the so called "season appropriate" nail polish. And I am proud of it. Haha!

If you like fall trees and nail polish this might be a good video for you.

I hope you enjoy it!

Benefits of Ginger Tea

 



Near the end of  my weekly vlog I lost my voice! I woke up Friday morning with "that" voice and continued with my day as usual. However, little did I know that the woman that sells my kids school uniforms would be the one who'd help me with the cure! She told me that ginger tea was considered a natural remedy to get your voice back. Did you know? I didn't!

So, off I went to get my ginger tea. 












































As I type this post, I'm happy to report that my voice is almost fully here! So I guess it worked.  

That's the scoop for today's post. If you are curious about how "that" voice sounded (not good) it's all at the end of today's vlog... Have a great week!

Do you know of any teas that help with other ailments?

Eye Candy: Leather Handbags






















After debating for some time, I decided to show you the bags I currently have for sale and explain how I ended up with these beauties. Thankfully, I did film this video that specific day because the day after, I lost my voice! Yup! Still sound like an out of tune flute...not cool at all.

Anyways, I'd had a hard time parting with one of the Birkin like handbags when I sold it a while back, so the one you see in the picture above stays with me, I'm keeping it, yay!

I hope you enjoy this haul!

P.S. My eBay corner of the internet where you can find the black bag and the blue one for sale!
