I am not a gamer. I had a Playstation 1 when I was younger but it’s not something I’ve ever been REALLY into. Having spent 8 weeks at home in isolation, I was looking for things to fill some of my time. That’s when I found out about the Nintendo Switch.
Talking through my best and worst purchases of 2019. I didn’t go on too much of a shopping spree, but I did buy a few things. I also had my 30th birthday last year so that was an occasion I wanted to mark with something special. Among the hits, there were also a couple of misses…
I’ve always thought I was a big wallet kind of girl. I have so many store cards, I hoard receipts “just in case” and keep everything and the kitchen sink inside my purse. I’ve come to realise that I use about 20% of the cards I have, and the rest is just taking up room.
I now have a total of seven Louis Vuitton pieces so I wanted to do an updated collection video to show you each one in order of when I got them. I also thought it would be really interesting to go through how much I paid for each item on the pre-loved market and compare that to the retail prices. The amount I’ve saved is incredible!
I’m so happy with the latest SLG in my collection – the Louis Vuitton Toiletry 15. When I first received it, I thought it might be a little small for my daily essentials. But, I’m actually pleasantly surprised with how much it can fit inside!
I can’t tell you how long I’ve been searching for this item! They are always sold out on the Louis Vuitton website, and therefore people have the cheek to try and sell them above the retail price for those that can’t wait for them to come back in stock. I knew I wanted one preloved and was only going to buy one for the right price and in good condition. I had seen so many REALLY worn ones but held out for something better. And here she is…
I bought the Louis Vuitton Trousse 23 pre-loved from a seller on Facebook about 9 months ago. I was really impressed with the quality of the item, being a vintage piece from 1989 (the year of my birth!). However, I knew from the offset that it would be worn – I fully expected it to have a bit of an old smell and the hardware to be faded.
I rate my entire collection of luxury handbags and small leather goods. This was so difficult, I love them all! But it was a fun video to make. Let me know what your best and worst pieces are or if you disagree with any of my choices!
I finally got my hands on the Louis Vuitton 6 Ring Key Holder! It was on my wishlist for the longest time and is the only piece in my collection that is brand new direct from the store.
Personalising my agenda is a way to make it extra special; it also encourages me to use it a lot more! As you can see I’ve had my initials hot stamped in gold – this is a free service offered at Louis Vuitton stores. I’ve also found some really stunning stationary to use inside.
