The lovely Noemie K from No's Land has sent me a Blogaward. Thanks Noemie!

Here are the rules :
- thank whoever gave this to you
- copy the award
- repost it in your blog
- tell us seven things that your readers don't know
- link seven new bloggers
- notify the winners of the award with a comment on their blog

So here are seven things about me for my readers :

1) I'm a bag-a-holic. I love bags and have been collecting them for years (I haven't counted how many I have in a while, and I've also tried cutting down on bag purchases, but I still think I have around 70-80 bags (that I use! Everything I don't use I give away to friends... or my sister).
My collection includes brands such as Givenchy, Versace, Longchamp (of course!), Dior, Dolce and Gabbana (just one, but it's great!), Moschino, Celine, YSL, several other high end brands, and tons of bags without any label or from lesser known brands.
This might sound like a lot, and sometimes people think I'm completely crazy when they hear about this, but keep in mind that I've been collecting them for quite some time. It's not like I bought 40 designer bags in one week or anything, it took me some time to build this collection. And it is still growing!

2) I don't take very good care of my bags though. I am a bit ashamed of this, but it's not like I really abuse them or anything. I just don't bother with cleaning them, putting them in their dustbags and filling them with paper and all that stuff you are *supposed to* do every day. (I do it from time to time though, so don't you guys worry!)
This is partly because I don't have time to do that and partly because they seem to be fine even if I don't.

3) I don't like knock offs, and never buy them. I have gotten a knock off on my hands once or twice when I bought something on Ebay (which I love!) but immediately got rid of these.

4) I used to think Hermés Birkin was my dream bag for a long time, but now I mostly dream of Bottega Venetas fantastic leather goods instead. I don't own any (yet!) though...

5) I also have quite a large collection of scarves. Which is a bit strange, to tell you the truth, since I don't really wear scarves that much. But a lot of scarves are just so pretty and so hard to resist!
This collection got started when I accidentally saw a big lot of vintage designer scarves being sold dirt cheap on Ebay a few years ago. I placed a bid, the auction was in the wrong category and so I won. So once I had 30 lovely scarves (one of the scarves was a white Dior-scarf that is still one of my favourites to this day) it was hard to resist adding a few more to the collection...
I think I have around 60 scarves as well. My favourites are a lovely Alexander McQueen one that looks (and feels) so delicate I rarely use it (I'm scared I'll ruin it) and a mint green Valentino-one (that I use, it already has a small stain on it that doesn't go away so no need to worry about ruining that anymore!)
A lot of the scarves are vintage, but some are new as well. I like a lot of H&Ms scarves, especially from the designer collections they've had over the years.

6) I love the smell of Nivea products. And I'm rather big on all sorts of beauty products in general, too!

7) Alber Elbaz is my favourite designer at the moment. I also adore Stella McCartney.

  1. aw,
    thanks for passing it along, and congrats to you :)

  2. Thank you so much for tagging me with this award, darling! And congratulations for receiving it yourself - well-deserved! I too am a bag-aholic. Though I'm guilty of owning knock-offs (I prefer to think of them as replicas). They're more friendly to my current budget. Perhaps someday I will have the chance to own the real thing! :)

  3. Hi there-I love scarves too! Well done on the award my dear!

  4. THanks for the award!!=) will do the tag as soon as I got time..=)I used to baby my bags but then I realized that there is no fun in freaking out every minute over a handbag, so I got over it and it's fun that way..=)Post pics of your scarves!!=)

  7. Thanks so much for the award! You are a doll.

    And I find myself doing the same thing with scarves. I buy and buy and then just admire from a distance.

    Love Grace.

  8. OH, sweetie, finally I am here and want to thank you for my awards. I am a bit behind on these, but I will do my best to do it in December. :)
    I am with you on Bottega bags. It's my dream, too. I have been wanting one for years and one day I will get it. I also adore Celine and am now a bit jealous :) (just a tiny bit) because you've got a few. I also dream of Chanel 2.55, but it's up there with BV... :)
    Where do you keep all your treasures, by the way? 80 bags is a massive quantity! :)))

    Also love scarves... the more the better.

    I wish I could see your collections. I know I am THAT curious, but if you ever get a chance to take a few pics to share with us it would be a pleasure to have a pick. :)
