Since this blog is a safe place to share, here are a few ootds from my Instagram that I've been wearing these past couple of weeks. 



 

You can find this last outfit completely described in the video below.

Unexpected Turn of Events






















This past week I sold my first EVER eBay bag - or bag for that matter - and on top of that, later that day, I learned that the person that bought it was a very special person.



































Everything unfolds in this video, I hope you enjoy watching it!

Thank you! 

Alina




P.S. Isn't this bag beautiful? It was very hard to part with!

Chic Leather Handbag Factory Spotted
























Last week I went to yet another place where they make leather handbags which may be the one I pick for my own brand!

This journey of starting my own business has proven to be challenging but still a lot of fun. 

Thank you for following me along as I dive into this process!

February Favorites/ US Favorites Haul






































For this past month's favorites I have great finds!

This CC cream is the best thing I've ever tried so far. What I like the most is the multiple benefits you get from this product. It's an anti-aging hydrating serum combined with SPF 50+, and it's full coverage. It feels so good on the skin! And the fact that the nice lady at Ulta sold it to me along with this beautiful brush makes me look forward to taking care of my skin. 



I'm also showing other products in this video that are worth remembering. You may want to grab a a cup of joe and take notes!

My bag is also featured, and I could send it to you if you wish to get a new one in black here! (I have only one left, Thank you!) 

I hope you like this video and subscribe to the channel for regular updates.

Have you ever tried any of these products? Let me know!

Things Are Getting Interesting

























I feel like I'm finally starting to make progress with this business adventure as I get into the nitty-gritty of it all. 

It takes lots of time and energy but it's so worth it. Having the opportunity to develop a very well thought out product, and taking the time to select prime quality leathers is a blessing to me. 

In today's video you'll find another Argentine Leather Factory visit, a sneak peek into my Snapchat, my breakfast, bits of Buenos Aires and little old me.

By the way, let's be friends on Snapchat. Isn't that a fun platform? Anyway, do find me over there, my handle is non other than... eclecticalu. Apparently I enjoy making a fool of myself with filters and things of that sort...we just laugh a lot basically. Come on! It's good for the soul, I say!

I hope you like today's video!
























P.S. THE dress and 15 days of dresses

APPLESAUCE DELICIOUSNESS...






















I made The Anna Edit applesauce recipe and I loved it. It's one of those recipes that are quick & easy. Once you have a batch in the refrigerator you suddenly feel like it'd be a good idea to pair it with every dish, savory or sweet!

A warning: I cannot be trusted when it comes to cinnamon. You may want to add only a few teaspoons like normal people do.

The video is short, it's snappy... and I hope you like it!
