Cleaning and conditioning your leathers

I recently looked at my Givenchy Antigona and realised how much I had been mistreating it, it had been about 3-4 months since my last clean and condition, this has started to make the bag shape a little off. The things I use are in the image below and the steps I use them in.

1. I use the Mr.Sheen wipes for once a week cleans

2. I use the hosehold leather care kit usually one a month, the kit has a cleaning solution, conditioner and sponge to apply the xonditioner, follow the instructions on the box for best results.  I find the best place to get leather care item is from car part stores or high end bag and leathergood stores.

3.  After doing the leather care kit I use the water and stain repeller to keep everyyhing safe and  as a bit of a security blanket.

I think the most important thing to do after cleaning and conditioning is to stuff the bag with tissue paper and let it sit in the dust bag for a  few days to ensure it doesn’t lose shape while it is mosturised.

Doing this once a month will really make your items last so much longer. Remember they are an investment!

Beauty Bay haul

I found out about beauty bay from a friend with amazing eyebrows, I always wanted to try Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade and only knew of it being on Net A Porter which has huge postage costs, so she let me know I could get it from Beauty Bay and they post to Australia! I decided to get a few extra things to get free post. First things first if you have ever thought about trying Anastasia Beverly Hills then you just need to go and get it, I’m so glad I did and don’t know why it took this long. It doesn’t transfer or rub off, is the perfect colours and is just so amazing! I watched some YouTube videos and just went for it. I’m so happy with it!

While I was there I bought an Urban Decay eyeshadow palette, 3 brushes and got a free lip and eye primer. Delivery to Australia took exactly 2 weeks and was packaged beautifully. Very happy!

Byredo – Mojave Ghost perfume from Mecca Maxima

About once every 6 months I look for a new perfume, I went into Mecca Maxima and had a smell of some Diptyque candles and a brief look at the Byredo stand, I sprayed one on my wrist but thought it was too potent and just walked out. An hour or so later and I got this amazing smell of something a little vanilla, a little musk and a whole lot sophisticated…. it was the perfume! It had completely changed and was so devine. At that stage I was already in my car, had paid my $50 parking fee and on my merry way to Ikea. As soon as I got home that night I got onto the website to get it, it came in the post in 3 days and even came with 3 samples for shopping online. I suggest you try this one on, I bought Mojave Ghost.
