vacation haul

Two weeks in Portugal 

So I dont know if hauls are common in the blog world but I figured I'd show you guys what I manage to purchase during that short vacation.

Jewelry : 

                                                      1. The black matte chain bracelet:   

For a long time I was looking for a black matte chunky bracelet chain when I came accross this one in  Lefties:  In the shopping mall    Price wise it was : 3,99 euros.

2. The rings

The four rings were purchase in the same places, store:
                       And the shopping mall :    
                       Price again 3,99 euros 

3. The two ankles bracelets :  

When I inatially saw this trend it was at the beach and I absolutely fell for it, I mean, I've always loved this style but where I live it is not so current and it's hard to find a nice ankle bracelet in the stores. oh and initially I purchase three, but I lost one in the ocean .....These were purchase at the Nazaré beach, in a little Indian shop, loll I know it's not very traditional . Price: It was about 2 euros each.                      
There's a particular reason why I love these two models so much its because when you walk they make a little jingle noise, and this makes me very happy.

4. The three multi colored beads bracelets :

So these were purchased in Nazaré beach again, in a little kiosk on the side walk, they were about 1,50 euro.

5. The bangle :

This purchase was one of the most fun, I bought this at the  Consolaçao beach, where they were having a arts and crafts market. I think it was 5 euros, but I am not sure . The name of the kiosk: was Mimos Desempre Desempre and email: 

6. The charm bracelet :

I absolutely love what this lady does, I wanted to buy everything I mean I still go to her facebook page and look at the pictures of all the crazy and beautiful jewelry that she makes. The funny thing is that alot of the stuff she makes is not necessarily my style or I think whould look good on me but I love it, I cant explains it !!! I wonder if I am the only one this happens to ????? Ya cause normaly I like the more edgy modern style..... Anyway I cant remember the price, but for sure it was under 5 euros.

7. The two golden colored beads necklaces : 

First of all, these are colored golden necklaces not real gold  
or even plated gold, but appenrently they stay that pretty color and they don't become dark, now It  has not been that long enough to know, but will see with time....
So these are necklaces but I will use them most likely like bracelets, these were about the 9 euro range, and were purchased in the little shops in the city of Fatima. Now the reason why I really like them it's because they remind me of a style that was very popular in Portugal when I was a kid...

8. The plated golden blue and green bracelets :

These two bracelets were purchase at the same place and at the same time one for 20 euros and the other for 25 euros, and again I got it because it reminded me of the trends when I was a kid in my vacations in Portugal. So these are silver and then plated gold, and not complete gold like the ones in my childhood ....

Travel cases and accessories: 

9. The travels cases :

The bigger travel case, I got it because I actually did not have a big cosmetic case for traveling and I like this style although, I did think it was white ,but I it was not, I guess off white (beige) will do ?!

The smaller one is really the one I like, because its soft at touch, and has as very tiny specks of glitter, not very noticeable, and this pouch remending me of the new clear jelly trend that has been going on, which I like.

They were purchased at PRIMARK AT O FORUM and the price range was 4,00 euros for the small one and the bigger one, I forgot the price, sorry, but I think it was around 5 euros. 

10. Coin purse : 

I cant justify this purchase but hey .... I just love it, I saw the color and was floored,  I dont no whats happening to me I am not the colored  tipe person I normally gravitate towards black, white and thats it, but I think the sun and europe give me a different perspective on colour, any who enough blabbing. Ok so inside it's a light purple and on the outside it has an holographic pattern, with  purlple, orange , gold, green colors. This was bought at lefties and again I dont have the price....

11. Key chain :

I have been on the look out for this tipe of key chain for a while, and all the ones that I saw were very expensive. Now this one was cheap, it was only 3 euros at primark and the color is perfect for fall, also it is fake fur which is a plus for me.

Miscellaneous :
12. Schwarzkopf gliss hair repair serum deep-repair :

So fun fact ... lol this came with the mags, apparently in europe they have little gifts when you buy fashion magazines, pretty cool right?? I wish it was the same in Canada. So I have not tried it yet because I am finishing a matrix one, but as soon as I will try it I am going to write a review.

13. The black cami :

So I purchase this in a store that is called shop 1one in the city of ( Leiria ) . Its design locally in Portugal, which is a big plus,  since europe is not very well financially, it's always good to encourage locals. The price was also descent 9 euros. Now I just love this cami, it's see true and has small straps, plus the back has a pretty crochet design, perfect for going out at night.

14. The magazines :

So these are the mags that came with the serum I haven't gotten to read them, but now is the perfect time to start, since it's the automne edition.

Thanks for Reading !

The Controversial post

So a couple of weeks ago I ordered 2 bags online and these items are some that i have been wanting for quite some time, but here is the issue , I ordered 2 FAKE Givenchy bags : the  Antigonia and the Obsedia.

So as far as the shipping goes, it did take about 2 weeks to come, and the shipping was free, they were in neat condition and they look really good for fake Givenchy bags , I mean I am very impressed for the price I paid.

 For the Antigonia I paid about 65 $ Canadian , and for the Obsedia  I paid a little bit more , 234$  ( I know it seems a lot but keep in mind that I really felt in love whit this model ).

Review of

  The fake Antigonia medium sugar goatskin satchel bag :

- The outside of the bag:

Positive aspects:

A bit of technical stuff: so mine is black and has a kinda rough texture on the leather all though, I don't think its leather. With gold hardware , So as far as the exterior , it is very similar to the original one I think from what i have seen in pictures online. It is also pretty sturdy all though I only received it a couple of days ago. As far as the feeling and look of the bag from outside it does not feel cheap . And the hardware is pretty good as fare as the feel  and quality .

Negative aspects:

The way they packed this , was crap because it came in a plastic envelope kinda bag so my purse was folded in 2 so it left a mark or dent in the back side of the bag and the shape at first was not his original shape but i think that it will fix it self with time . 

Another down side, is that in pics the real one looks more rigid in the sense that it keeps its shape form no matter what. This one too, but the material looks a little bit more soft less rigid i guess .... i hope this make sense .

- The inside :

So as far as what i have seen from pics online the inside looks very similar i mean its your basic black lining with a couple of pockets thats all really.

 Smooth leather Obsedia bag:

-The outside of the bag: 

Positive aspects:

 From what i have seen online this bags looks identical to the real one i don't think someone can say its a fake one . On the side it has the Givenchy logo dented in the leather or more like pleather.  The hardware is amazing its very sturdy and this one is silver whit a hint of gold.  And the pleather is like a plastic feel shiny thingy but identical to the original one in the pics.

   -The inside of the bag  :

   In the inside there s again the logo of the brand dented in the bag and again it is very basic inside.

Negative aspects:

As for now i don't find a downside to this purse, even the way it came it was very well pack so that it was not damage.

Controversy :  Now for the controversy , OK , first of all i am not really the type of person that purchases expensive things and that actually care if something is a brand name or not, i am more the type to by something that i like for the style, and i always look for bargains, i mean lets be real here , who has 2000$ to put in a purse i don't . I would love to be able to afford one but that's not the case for now so for the time being i am very very very content . And when i say its a controversy its because  I don't see any one on youtube, bloggers, or else talk about it but i am sure in this world plenty of people have purchase fake items not just bags ! But here is the thing why don't they talk about, are they ashamed well i cant answer for them but on my part I am fine with it lets embrace the fake gorgeous bags that these are and lets hope that more people will say hay i have a fake one to .

****: My final verdict i love both these bag but i have to say that as far as the way the saler sent it, the Obsedia was way better tinking care of but it was way more expensive so....

So what do you guys think is it wrong to buy a fake items or is it OK or you just don't give a f%#@.???
