Good Morning my loves, today I will be sharing with you a recent splurge of mine. Two weeks ago I was in the UK visiting family and decided to spend a few days in London. The weather was perfect, our small apartment had a lovely view of the Canary Wharf and I had missed the busy rushed vibes where no one has time for anyone (JK). Our short visit entailed us watching ‘Stranger Things’ after midnight, eating, shopping and basically galavanting around London. Just wanted to mention the chocolatier cafe SAID in SOHO and its flourless cake, it was BOMB DIGGIDY! one of the best flourless cakes I’ve ever had. Will definitely be going back here, be sure to book beforehand (Yes a cafe booking ) for a spot to be reserved as we ended up eating it outside on someones doorstep as we didn’t want to wait an hour to be seated 😂.

Back to the purchase…

These days I’m all about side bags and backpacks, there’s just something about a bag that can add the finishing touch to an outfit whether its simple or dressy. They are easier to carry around and only minimal items can be added (a way of controlling how much crap I put it my bag) Mind you, I’m a pretty clean person when it comes to my things, you won’t find melted chocolate stains, old fruit or any other junk. Most of my things are organized and are already boxed or bagged (sunglasses, cosmetic pouch, wipes, coin purse…). I purchased the CÉLINE Nano Luggage in Tricolor, I’ve been wanting one of these for a while and it was going to be between this or the LV Capucine BB. The LV Capucine BB was just as beautiful however the middle clasp to secure your belongings was a pain to close and over time the leather flap will heavily crease due to it being opened and closed each time.

I don’t own many bags or purchase many from the high street. I interchange between 6 bags that I own, depending where I am going and what I am doing. I’m okay to pay a little more if that means I am going to get something that is going to last a long time and it’s quality is impeccable. Everyone is different, some prefer having more bags, some are comfortable having that one bag they use for everything and theres some (like me) who prefer to have those few higher end goods. And I’m a WOMAN, I love the finer things in life 😇

Hope you enjoyed my short trip to London, it was a spur of the moment trip and worked out to be a perfect ending. I will for sure be sharing more looks with this bag so keep your eyes peeled 😆.
