Céline Favorites

I present you my current obsession – Céline’s Luggate Tote Mini! I’ve always had a lack of black purses due to my thinking that black bags often hide the detailing of the designs. But if I were to buy any black bag, this would absolutely be it! ❤ The Luggate Tote series came out in 2010, but it didn’t catch the public’s eyes until it was spotted on arms of celebrities. Once it became popular, of course it then became a more exclusive choice and grew considerably in price. Since then, certain styles have been discontinued (i.e. Medium and Shoulder size), but more styles and color combinations have been added to the line. As intimidating as the price tag may seem, it is a stylish and durable product with refined craftsmanship, a worthwhile investment you can proudly add to your designer collections. As much as I love big bags, I believe the Mini size would suffice. But – don’t judge by what it sounds like, it isn’t that “mini” and a size Medium is actually so big! It also comes in smaller scales called …

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Hello beautifuls! This post is dedicated to my love for watches! I love all things both stylish and functional, so watches definitely belong in this category. I own two MJ watches and I’ll show them off today! Since I never bothered to look up their official names, I named them myself 🙂 Mod Chic Brown Pretty In Pink Both these watches were bought from Watch Station. The store hold watches from many brands such as MJ, Armani, Fossil, MK, DKNY, etc. The best part about the shops is these amazing sales they host! Both of the watches you see here were priced under $70 each! The quality on the other hand are not exactly top notch, but I’m certainly not complaining since you get what you pay for! I bought these at two separate visits of the shop. I’ve always loved brown leather strap w/ clean watch face combo, so when I saw Mod Chic Brown I did not even blink before pulling out my wallet. 🙂 And Pretty In Pink? Which girl could resist? I thought it was a fabulous find for the summer …

Ted Baker Store

Lovelies! As I mentioned in one of my previous post Have You Met Ted?, that I would show you around their store and showcase some of their products, since I absolutely adore the brand. Below are taken at the Ted Baker local store in Toronto Eaton Centre. The store interior has such unique and sweet decors, click on the photos to see the slideshow! Ted Baker is a luxury clothing brand, it sells designer clothing and accessories for men and women. They are already a very established brand, originated in the UK. To me the style reminds me a little bit of Kate Spade, but it is also much more. “Ted Baker’s combination of classic British style and quirky detailing has won it a loyal following of fashionistas and fashionistos worldwide. As you browse through the beautifully cut designs in store, pay special attention to the details: this is a label that delights in subtle touches of embroidery and trim. Ted Baker prides itself on offering ‘twice the product for half the price’ – and the fine fabrics, tailoring …

Flower That Never Dies

Flowers that never die? Sounds plenty incredible and a little crazy. This is a gift from a friend who got it in France, and it actually doesn’t die. It isn’t magical or anything, it’s named “preserved flowers”. 🙂 Preserved flowers were invented by Vermont Co. located in France in 1991. Since then, this growing industry has dramatically expanded, spreading worldwide to countries throughout Europe and Asia. Once the flowers start to bloom, they are picked and immersed in a non-toxic, drying compound that draws out the moisture and then dyed with various colors. This unique preservation process gives flowers long-lasting, sustainable life. Isn’t this just amazing? What do you think lovelies? Love, Val ❤

Have you met Ted?

A couple weekends ago, I was shopping at Toronto Premium Outlet, and I found myself a new love – a brand that I absolutely adore – Ted Baker! Their style quickly reminded me of Kate Spade, but there is something about it that isn’t quite the same, and makes it more appealing to me.   I did score some lovelies while at the outlet store! Although if you haven’t really seen Ted Baker products, I’d highly recommend visiting their actual stores, they are gorgeous! I will do a separate post on Ted Baker at Toronto Eatons Centre, and show you what they are all about and why I’m so in love. This is what they call a Shopper Bag – Not your average handbags eh? Its retail price is about $50-$70, I got it on sale for $30! Girls, what are you waiting for?! It’s does not have any zipper/button and definitely can’t replace any of my purses, but It is so adorable I just want to carry it places! I currently use it to carry my lunches to …
