Look at My Leather Handbag Samples!






















This week I saw my handbag samples for the first time. I was so excited! I also saw that we need to focus on a few finishing touches.

Have a look!


Ode To My Linden Tree & Beautiful Buenos Aires





















I'm working on my handbag business quite a lot lately so I'm vlogging my journey. I hope you are enjoying following along!

One thing is for sure though. In this short video you will see a lot of autumnal trees in Buenos Aires, listen to great music, and the witness the evolution of my very own Linden tree during the course of one fall week.

Thank you for watching!

When Podcasts Bring Joy


If you are looking for a new podcast I have one recommendation for you: At Home With... And if you are going to download one episode, please try the one with Terry De Gunzburg, founder of By Terry. However, the last episode of At Home With... Lisa Eldridge was equally exciting.

I've been listening to these episodes in the car coming back from the school-run and I can attest they can transform a lousy day into a blissful one, and all in the comfort of your own home, or car in this case.

My favorite so far was the one with the founder of By Terry (but then again it's neck to neck with the one with Lisa Eldrige!) just because Anna Gardner (The Anna Edit) and Lily Pebbles were so genuinely interested in learning about Terry De Gunzburg's life and career that it shined through the whole interview/home visit. 

I grinned and laughed so much that I wished my 15 minute car ride lasted longer so I could keep listening to the podcast. Don't worry I listened to the entire podcast at home (twice!). 

It was especially interesting to learn how Terry De Gunzburg developed her iconic products Touche Éclat and Baume de Rose.

You'll find all this and more in this video. That, and my favorite lip combo. Oh! and I have a proper living room again, with a couch, chairs and all!

Enjoy!
