After some procastinating, and being lazy, and wondering how to get the best pictures possible without natural light (cloudy & rainy day over here), I'm now ready to work on my newest blog entry (yes, this one).

I found Cottonpurr on Etsy through Pounce, which means I was bored and decided to look around Etsy to see what newness I could find, saw one her wallets and decided to check her shop!

I must confess a total love & addiction to handbags, purses and wallets, an addiction anyone that knows me is well aware of, and if any of you have read my entry about Dolly bags, must have guessed.

I started checking her shop, and totally fell in love with her wallets, and also the Asuka bag, though her shop is filled with loads of lovely bags, either ready to ship or made to order. She also has camera pouches, and cell phone pouches, which was what I decided to make my first purchase from her shop.

A confession I must make is that I tend to be an impulse buyer, but only from shops I've bought before, and sellers I know about. For new sellers, I always spend some time reading around policies, profile and listings and feedback... You can say I get to be a lil thorough when it comes to shopping from new people. I have found that it is always the best way to buy, reading and knowing what you're getting properly, and making sure you want what you're buying.

After checking her cell phone pouches, I decided to convo her after measuring my phone, cause none of the pouches seemed the right size for my phone, so I wanted to ask her if she could combine the two pouches sizes she offers, and make one better suited for my very pink Sony Ericsson. I also asked for a custom fabric that I had seen in her sold items. She convoed me back saying that she'd gladly combine the measurements, and that she had the fabric I wanted, so she set up the custom listing for my pouch!

After a week, I got another convo from her, with pictures of my lovely pouch, and telling me it was going to be shipped that day, and after 5 days I got an extremely well & careful packed cell phone pouch that won't only work as a replacement for my current pouch, but will also work as wristlet for those times I don't want to take much with me, aside from my phone!

Ain't it cute?

Two Girls And A Bar of Soap!

Hi there!

Finally, I'm back! I've had a few busy days at work, very busy days, I'd even say, and I really haven't had the energy and the time to update the blog, or even to plan the next entries, which I shall be doing this week. I can't wait for my holidays, which will mean some time to just relax and be with my boyfriend, and on occassion, write a blog entry with finally some decent pics of myself taken!

But, this blog is not just to rant about myself, this blog is dedicated to announce my new blog! I'm now the proud co-author and collaborator of a new blog dedicate to review Bath & Body products!: Two Girls And A Bar of Soap!

Brooke, from Crossbones Couture, which I can proudly name, not only as a favourite seller of mine, but as a good friend, and fellow B&B products junkie, proposed this idea to me, since we both love handmade B&B products and we love talking about them! We have only started, and will be doing reviews of our favourite products so far, and you can find the links to our favourites shops in the blog too!

Also, if you want us to review your products, e-mail us, we love trying new products and discovering new shops!
