As you may already be aware, we're in the process of buying a house. I say process, we've sold our house and are frantically on the hunt for the dream abode. Anyway, with that said buying full priced designer isn't in my budget right now. Each purchase of mine at the moment has to be thoroughly thought through.

So when DESIGNER EXCHANGE got in touch and asked if I'd like to work with them I jumped at the chance. If you're not already familiar with the name, Designer Exchange buy and sell designer products. If you're in the market for a designer purchase but aren't ready to pay full price but would consider a second hand purchase, this is for you. If like me, you have some designer pieces to sell Designer Exchange will buy these items off you for cash or in exchange for a voucher to spend on site for a higher price. This is a similar process to the other websites out there that will sell your items for you, however Designer Exchange pay immediately regardless of a sell.

For me, this means I can send off my Gucci Dionysus that hasn't seen the light of day for a few years and pocket the cash immediately, or put the voucher towards another item I've had my eye on for a while without forking out any extra cash I should be saving for the house. Genius!

For this collaboration I was kindly given a voucher to spend at my own will. (However I will still be using their selling service as I have a lot of items gathering dust in my forever overflowing wardrobe!) 

I purchased the Celine Trapeze bag and the Gucci lace Princetown loafers, both in immaculate condition as stated. The Gucci loafers actually hadn't ever been worn!

Home buys.
I'm currently of the hunt for our next house, the family house. Preferably an older Victorian property boasting original features; high ceilings, parquet flooring, ceiling roses, the list goes on!
Whilst the hunt for the dream house continues, it's got me thinking interiors! So, I've complied 10 of the best home pieces I've got my eye on at the moment..






Chunky boots.
They are all I've lived in this Winter, especially since the Christmas break. They're warm, practical, and don't forget versatile. From dressed down with jeans and an oversized coat, or sized up with a silky midi and tights, make these your next purchase.

I thought I'd sum up an amazing (understatement) of a week in the Cayman Island's with a photo diary - the photos I took will speak volumes compared to what I could possibly put into words, and sums up the week perfectly. We experienced a jam packed itinerary and even managed to cram in all three Islands; Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. 

It was the first time I had ever visited the Caribbean, and it's safe to say after that small taste of Caribbean life, I'll most definitely be back.

Luggage has been fairly basic, until now. Gone are the days of the basic plastic carry on, luggage has just gone chic thanks to an exclusive limited collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier? Don't mind if I do.

A unique luggage collection of 12 exclusive pieces in black or Burgundy, featuring a contrasting baby pink inner liner - classic Jean Paul Gaultier.

I'm using the J.P Gaultier Ampli Spinner (4 wheels) the perfect accompaniment for my trip to Amsterdam.
