Good morning guys, phewww. Finished these article just in the last second because it’s so important to me to keep my baby (obviously talking about the blog) up to date even in hectic times like these days when I actually prefer to bring all the moving work to an end but yet feel the urge and need to share some news here. So here is a quick update of what I wore the past sunday while filling up my wardrobe and buying some of the little essential things for my flat such as a vacuum, a shower curtain and so forth. So you see, the look had to be super comfy and easy but not to warm because I definitely felt warm enough because of all the manual work. Furthermore I finally carried out my new Valentino bag. I had an eye on that beauty since I first saw it, it was truly what we call love at first sight and I mean it!

Yah I know it coasts a huge amount of money but sometimes we have to pamper ourselves, right? Items like this bag make you feel special and proud because while wearing it, because you know you worked hard for the money to purchase it and if you love it, you will never regret your decision to buy it. Since I first splurged a huge amount of money on my beige Chanel bag about a year ago and never ever regret it (even if I wear it in very rare occasions) I learnt to appreciate the quality and the feeling of wearing a high fashion designer bag. I’m not born into a rich family (relating to the money), I don’t expect to get anything for free in life, I know that the hard way is always better than the easy one and therefor I know that nothing comes from nothing. I believe in hard work, in ambition and in endurance and this is how I live my life. If I do something I do it with all my heart and soul, with all my power and simply all I can bring it. This might be the mentality of a typical swiss but maybe this is just mine because I was raised with these values and I’m thankful to my mom and dad for giving my this piece of advice for live. All I wanted to make clear with these lines is that if I wear high price pieces, I worked for it. They’re not given to me or bought with money I didn’t earn with my own work. They are bought with my own money and they are my rewards to show myself every day anew what I can reach with my diligence. Enjoy your day, my dears and always remember: Nothing comes from nothing!

  59. Good for you! I know, it&#39;s hard when people don&#39;t realize when you&#39;ve worked hard for something. Personally, I find it hard to rationalize spending that much money on a purse when I could go to Europe for the same amount (we all have our priorities, right?) That said, the bag is effing hot, and I can totally understand why you fell for it! :)<br /><br />Shani x<br /><a href="http://
