Bags! Big or small? Cheap or expensive?


A few years ago my Mum and Dad went to Singapore and my Mum called me up while in a shopping centre and said "They have Guess handbags here for £50 do you want one?" and I remember thinking wow that sounds like a good deal but no £50 is a bit of a crazy amount to spend on a handbag when I already have one.
That Christmas I opened a present and inside was this guess handbag that my Mum had seen!

It was love!

The handbag was so well made you could just feel the quality of it.
A few years later we booked a holiday to Australia with a stop off in Singapore and I thought maybe ill get a another bag.
I could not believe the price difference between the UK and Singapore! 
I ended up buying 5 bags (yes I know this was completely excessive!)
They ranged between £30-£60 each! I found one of the same bags in the UK for £150 so crazy price difference!

5 years on and 3 are still going strong! The others have been so loved and worn that really they need throwing away!

After getting really nice bags I cant imagine going back. Although you pay out more money initially they last for years.

I have a problem when it comes to large handbags though, I fill them up! I know a lot of girls seem to be the same.

I looked in my handbag recently to find out why it was so heavy and I had 3 tape measures, a full size hand cream, a notepad, 3 pens, a purse, 5 lip sticks, 3 packs of tissues,  a ton of receipts and unfortunately the list goes on!
I made the decision to get a new bag, a small one to precise. My theory was with a small bag I can only fit so much in it and I can stop hurting my shoulder!! and was it a good choice?

Yes it was a great choice! 

I really wanted to get a leather bag, one that I know will last years! After ALOT of window shopping I brought the Ted Baker Markun. 


I love this black is small, classic and goes with every type of outfit!
I have had it for a few months now and the leather has slightly softened which I love.
It was quite pricey at £150 but it is amazing quality and I honestly do think I will constantly use it for years. 

What are your guys favourite bags!?

See you next week!

Christie Friday-Lush Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion Review


Lush Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion

I got this as a birthday present and loved using it!

This smells just like cake mix, a lovely vanilla edible kind of smell which last on your skin for a few hours after applying.
I don’t know what it is but this moisturiser just feels really luxurious and like it should be ridiculously expensive like the creams from Laura Mercier. The price is £11.95 and worth every penny!
It sinks into your skin when apply it no matter how much you apply (I do like to use a lot sometimes!)
It doesn’t leave any white streaks and isn’t oily it just leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturised for hours. 

Its defiantly one of the best body moisturisers I’ve ever used. 
 Another win from Lush!
