Pics from my Phone

Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace dupe from JoeFRESH at Loblaws for CAD$19. First saw Veronika’s etsy-version here and Katherine’s original here. May have to go back for the turquoise version.

My next wishlist item – LV Damier Ebene Neverfull in the PM size – it’s so tiny I love it! It’s about the size of a speedy but no zip and you can put it on your shoulder. I  wanted to take a pic of me wearing it but the sweet salesguy didn’t understand and posed with it instead LOL!

Whole Foods carries Butter LONDON nailpolishes! I love it when I can sneak *MY* shopping in with a grocery run!

My first FRANKEN-polish (yes – that’s what they’re called!). Turning my Sally Hansen I Pink I Can into something more wearable – ignore the clumsy application. Just kept mixing in darker shades until it turned a deep pink color.

Cookies I’ve baked for my kiddies’ class parties…who knew decorating cookies could be so much fun? 

What’s your next wishlist item?

    My wishlist item is also an LV Ella! I keep debating between a speedy or the small neverfull. I love both. I'm a sucker for the speedy, but I think the tote is more practical. I'm waiting until my next birthday in September to treat myself 😉 Do you own a speedy already? This will be my first foray into the LV realm.

      I have the Mono Speedy 25 (pic here: http://ellaprettyblog.blogspot.ca/2010/04/outfit-of-day-and-some-shopping.html)I got it in 2010 but I'm just starting to use it more now that the vachetta handles have turned a honey color (I like how they look when they're darker, and you don't have to worry about uneven discoloration).The speedy is a classic – CON: it can feel a bit heavy as you have to hold it on your hand or forearm (not ideal for shopping) PRO: the zip closure is very practical and secure. I've heard the neverfull straps can dig into your shoulders – and you have to be careful with your wallet as there's no full closure – but I'll get a zipped purse organizer to go inside mine :-)Can't wait to see what you choose!

      Thanks Schnelle – I was so excited to find the necklace – I'd been wanting to order one from the etsy shop – but this was even cheaper.

      Thanks Sarah – they were fun to make – I used new playdough cutters as cookie cutters.

      I can see why it would be a favorite! I actually prefer LV's 2 "basic"/classic bags (speedy & neverfull) over there more expensive ones – the simple designs look best to me.

    Oh my gosh, I can't believe that was from JoeFresh?! I totally thought you were wearing V&A! What a great find. 🙂

      I wish I had the real V&A necklace…although there are probably A LOT of other wishlist items I'd get before that LOL!
