On Beautiful Bike Rides & The Making of Argentine Leather Handbags



I went for a short bike ride and loved it so much that I decided to update you on my leather bags.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! You'll find birds chirping, and a beautiful scenery. Have a look!





Let me know how you call these types of hats, please? Thank you!

APPLESAUCE DELICIOUSNESS...






















I made The Anna Edit applesauce recipe and I loved it. It's one of those recipes that are quick & easy. Once you have a batch in the refrigerator you suddenly feel like it'd be a good idea to pair it with every dish, savory or sweet!

A warning: I cannot be trusted when it comes to cinnamon. You may want to add only a few teaspoons like normal people do.

The video is short, it's snappy... and I hope you like it!

Starting My Own Business: Conducting a Leather Handbag "Research"

































I may have met with a friend at the mall and may have enjoyed a cup of coffee but, we did put in some hard work.  

Actually... it didn't feel like hard work AT ALL. All right, it wasn't exactly research ...I went to the mall to have a look at what the brands are offering. Phew! 

Now that we made it clear and I got it out of my system. Here's the second Vlog SAB (Starting a Business) where I talk about friendship, protesters, and nail polish. Very eclectic, if you catch my drift...





Thank you for watching!

WHAT'S IN MY BAG - AIRPORT EDITION & PLANNING A GIVEAWAY



As you may know, I came back from the US last month. So I thought I'd show you a recreation of the things I took to the airport with me. I was surprised by the capacity of this bag. It fits a lot. Please excuse my craziness in this video and have a look! :D



The Real Deal

Below you'll find the pics I took before leaving the house, the day of the actual flight, and the progression of what I was adding to the bag as minutes flew by.

I'm selling a bag just like this one in black. Here's the link If you are interested to see more details of this gorgeous leather bag, click away. 

As you may know from my last vlog, I'm testing the waters regarding e-commerce but I'm starting a line of my own. This bag was made by "Casa Lopez" here in Argentina, a brand that is very well known for its great quality and craftsmanship.   

I'm making my own line of bags as we speak, and I will be so excited to share them with you when they become available. My main concern with the making of these bags was finding the best leather in the market and the best craftsmanship I could find. I'm also planning a giveaway so stay tuned for that!



































See you next week!
