Happy 4th Birthday Chic&Seek!

One of my favourite shopping websites, Chic & Seek is turning 4 years old this week!

In honour of the birthday celebrations, I decided to choose my four favourite items on the website, one for each year!

Chic&Seek are a online shop where you can buy pre-owned and vintage designer items. Everything is in great condition and it is all 100% authentic. Their beautiful items are sourced from the wardrobes of London’s most fashionable and famous women, so it’s not your average designer cast-offs!

My first favourite item is this Celine Nano Luggage bag. This is a classic Celine bag and it’s so chic. This bag has only minor signs of wear to it, and it comes with the original tags, authenticity card and dust bag. It’s a great little saving off a great bag!

Next up, I love this vintage Hermes scarf in ‘like new’ condition. The colour is so pretty and I love the glamorous ladies printed on it! It is a brilliant price for a beautiful piece! It’s a really special print, I can’t stop looking at this!

These ‘Gently used’ Classic Chanel flats are beautiful and timeless. If these are your size, they are an absolute steal! If they were my size, I would buy them in a heartbeat!

Finally, I couldn’t resist this Dolce & Gabbana card holder. I always find you use card holders more than you think, for both business cards and Oyster cards, these bad boys are always in your bag, so you may as well have a nice one! I love the bright yellow metallic. It’s really fun and fancy, and it would be easy to find your bag too!

There are so many great items on Chic&Seek, I could have picked 40 items rather than 4!

If you see something on Chic&Seek that you like, now is a great time to buy, as they have kindly given me a discount code to share with you all. Just enter ‘LUNCH!’ At the checkout for the generous 10% discount!

Happy Shopping!

What’s in my handbag!

Today I have been using my vintage Longchamp bag. I picked this up years ago for practically nothing from a vintage store, I don’t think they realised what a beautiful bag it is! Lucky for me!

I have filled it with the bare essentials as I like to travel light round London. My Lipbalm is This Works Turbo Balm. I love the slick packaging and it is a great rose scented cocoa-butter based moisturiser! Perfect for the gal on the go! Also I have with my a Stila lip crayon, I don’t always carry a whole make-up bag around, but I always carry a lipstick, because a quick swipe of it makes such an impact! I love the hot pick colour of this lip crayon and it lasts really well too.

My purse is by Vivienne Westwood, I love Westwood purses, they are good quality and really functional.

My Oyster card colder is by Chanel, it was a birthday gift a couple of years ago. It’s so beautiful, as it also doubles as a business card holder.

My phone case is new, it’s a beautiful floral print by Ted Baker for Proporta iPhone5 case. I love Ted Baker for Proporta cases, they do the best prints at really reasonable prices! This one has such a pretty romantic feel to it, I love it!

Jo Malone… Pure perfection!

If I could only wear one brand of perfume for the rest of my life, it would be without doubt, the scents of Jo Malone. I absolutely adore them, I always go in their stores, I smell every scent, I buy candles, soaps, bath oils and my favourite product of them all, is the incredible colognes!

They make amazing gifts for friends and family, and myself too. If you ever need to buy a little something for someone as a gift, Jo Malone never disappoints.

During this past winter I was wearing Wild Fig and Cassis, but now it’s summer I wanted something a little more summery and fresh, so I’m using Lime Basil & Mandarin. This is actually their signature a scent and it is marvellous! It’s fresh, fruity and zesty, but the basil adds that delicious herby scent and balances the citrus scents. The top note is Mandarin, the heart note is Basil, the base note is Amberwood, with the scent of Limes running through it also.

This perfume is so beautiful and it really lasts on your skin, as on my scarves and cardigans too. All Jo Malone products are incredible quality, the scent really lasts and they are so pure and rich.

Lime Basil & Mandarin is absolutely stunning and I adore using this perfume. It really is a modern classic!

If you have never tried Jo Malone, then Lime Basil & Mandarin is a brilliant place to start. Next time you are near one of their stores, pop in and try it!
