When we took a family vacation....

then these were ALL the luggages that came with us lol:
1 TUMI suitcase
1 Samsonite suitcase
2 Klipling suitcases
2 unbranded suitcase (for the nannies)
1 Louis Vuitton Keepall 60
1 Le Sport Sac baby bag
1 Kipling baby bag
1 Moozee chic bag in red
Plus a baby stroller

It was a party of SEVEN, consisting of 2 adults, 2 toddlers, a 2month old baby and 2 nannies. The vacation only lasted for 5 days and 4 nights but we carried that many lol.

My DH and I can manage to put all of our stuffs in only 1 luggage bag of Louis Vuitton Keepall 60. The rest of suitcases/luggages were used by my kids.

Althoug it may look small, but that LV luggage bag really deserved to be called 'KEEPALL'  :D

Vintage flowers patterns from Cath Kidston

I digged out my computer harddisk and found these photos. They are group photos for every batch of my Cath Kidston shopping haul. Pssstt, I only bought Cath Kidston stuffs only when they had SALE.

I admired the team behind CK (i.e. Cath Kidston) who can continuosly design classical and vintage flower patterns for their products. The names of the pattern are also reflecting its strong inspiration, such as winter meadow, briar rose, trellis rose, folk flowers, bunch flowers, winter rose, etc....
The names are just lovely and sweet.

And by the way, many of those bags are no longer in my closet. As I gave away some to my close relatives.

We are the BLUE family

My BLUE bags collection as of August 2011:
  1. Chanel Maxi Soft Caviar Blue
  2. Balenciaga City SGH Electric Blue
  3. Balenciaga Work RH Outremer
  4. YSL Easy Crest Leather Blue
  5. Celine Mini Luggage Cobalt Blue

Another batik bag in kawung pattern

I mentioned before in here that I love 'kawung' pattern.
This is another my fave tote bag (and also good for pilates bag) in kawung pattern from Ziba Label. It is combined with brick-coloured lizard skin.

My (future) bag closet

Today I visited our new house (still in progress) and found out that the walk-in closet has been nicely set up in the master bedroom. I have requested a special space for keeping my bags collection, and wanted it to be separated from the other wardrobes. And this is the final result. The size is just right (not too big and not too small) and I am sure it can store my curent bag collection comfortably.

The bag closet is 1 meter width and 2.4 meter height, divided into 6 shelves. --> I would definitely need small steps to reach the top shelf :D

Oh, and I have to mention that the other part of walk in closet has proper "his" and "her" wardrobes. So when my entire bag collection can no longer fit into this bag closet, I can still keep them in my "her" wardrobe *thinking to expand the bag closet*

And by the way, today I wore my new open tote from Cath Kidston in slate dots patterns. Considering that today was a hectic day and I planned to visit to the house which is under construction (dust everywhere!), then wearing this bag was the right choice.
The oilcloth bag is just dust away. No need to worry if it will get any dirt or stain from the construction.

This bag is still on my wishlist


Although I have had several pieces of BV bags, I still want another one in Ebano large veneta. Veneta is my fave style from BV (as well as Sloane). If I ever have my own money tree, then I want to collect the large veneta in several colours :D .

Ebano Intrecciato Nappa Large Veneta

style 115654 V0016 2072

Inspired by the shape of the timeless hobo, the traditional Veneta is a signature element of Bottega Veneta's handbag collection. Its concave armhole and flattened, minimalist body are balanced by a substantial handle, making it both roomy, comfortable as well as distinctive. An ideal bag for daily use. The bag has one interior zip pocket, a cell phone pocket and zipper closure. With gunmetal hardware.
20.1" W x 19.7" H x 2" D
51cm W x 50cm H x 5cm D
Drop 10" /25.5cm

Kawung has been one of my all time favourite batik patterns

Among the wide array of batik patterns, parang and kawung have been my all-time favourite ones. I am easily drawn into any products that use these 2 batik patterns. From tissue case to pillow cushion :D So it was no wonder that I got several bags in parang pattern and quite a few in kawung. This is one of them, a simple tote bag in kawung pattern from Lovely Batik.

I just noticed that recently I carried a lot of receipts in my bag. Well, then it is time to sort those stuffs and just throw away the old ones. I normally only kept receipts from the last 1 month of spending :D

Inside my make-up case

I got the make-up case from Sea Breeze Studio @Etsy and this is what I carry inside the case:

  • MAC pressed powder in NC35
  • MAC satin lipstick in 'Pink nouveau'
  • Shu Uemura blush in 'Pink 30'
  • Shu Uemura cheek brush
  • Tissue
  • Foldable comb
  • Sugar free 'Gofress' --> an instant mouth refresher
  • Toothpicks --> very very important items given the fact that I am wearing dental braces
  • Band aid --> a great help when my feet get blisters from wearing a super-tight or new pair of shoes

It is time to detox our body
It is time to clear our mind

It is time to clean up my closet

Hence some of my cousins, aunties and close relatives will get these bags from me :)

Nice goodies from Cath Kidston Summer Sale - Part 2

Holiday bag and day bag

Holiday bag in 'Country Rose'

The holiday bag can be folded and tucked into its matching pouch that came with the bag. Nice!

The holiday bag has 2 zipper pulls which is a good attribute for a holiday bag,
so that we can lock the bag by using the padlock

Day bag in 'British Birds'

During the last Cath Kidston summer sale, I made several purchases and last week I just received the second batch. The first batch has been featured here.

Here comes the second batch of my Cath Kidston goodies: 
  1. Day bag in British Birds
  2. Holiday bag in Country Rose
  3. Shopping trolley (foldable) in Slate spot (photo N/A)
I found difficulty to take pictures of the shopping trolley as I need to put some stuffing quite a lot to make it look like a trolley.

Anyway, there are some reasons why recently I am quite drawn to Cath Kidston:
  1. The vintage flowery patterns can hypnotize me successfully LOL
  2. The bag is my preferred bag to do the grocery shopping and to go to the pilates studio. Because they are made from oilcloth fabrics, then it is very maintenance-free. I don't need to worry the bag will get stain from the fresh seafood/meat that I choose from in the supermarket. And I can also be careless when I put in my dirty and wet clothes after having the sweaty pilates session
  3. And lastly, not so many people are seen to be wearing the 'authentic' Cath Kidston bags. Fakes are everywhere but it is very obvious when it is fake!
