What I treated myself to for my 32nd birthday this year…
It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post so I thought it was time for a catch up! I’ve just had my 32nd birthday so I wanted to share what I got up to. One of my absolute favourite things to do is go away for the night, have a nice meal and a relaxing stay so that’s exactly what we did!
Sustainability is a word that is thrown around a lot lately. It’s in the news, its on TV, a lot of brands are talking about being better when it comes to producing or packaging their products. It’s a subject I feel really passionate about exploring and pushing further in both my personal life and on my blog.
I know everyone is in different situations with work at the moment – I had a brief couple of months in the office when they opened again, but I’m now back to working from home. However, I did get some used out of my bags again for a little while, and this is what I was taking with me.
The great thing about small leather goods is, they are a great way to dip your toe in and get a feel for a brand, before committing to a higher priced item like a handbag. You can pick up an SLG on the preloved market for a fairly affordable price and see how you get on with it.
It was my 31st birthday earlier this week and last year I shared what I got for my 30th (I got the Chanel WOC which was incredible!). You seem to really enjoy seeing these and I LOVE sharing them with you. Feeling so unbelievable grateful as always, and I of course treated myself to a couple of amazing Louis Vuitton unicorns…
I am generally a very casual dresser. A tshirt and jeans is my staple outfit and most of my clothing is from the high street. However, I like to elevate my looks with high end accessories. I can throw on a blazer, a preloved handbag and a designer belt and it just takes things up a notch!
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!
