A trusted white handbag

White handbag: La Martina (old collection),  similar here 

La Martina is having sales on bags. Do check them out for exclusive discounts. I love their collections particularly The Guards. This post is not a promotion for the brand. It is written on my own accord with my honest opinion.

Location: London. 

Hi my loves, hope you guys are having a good week so far. In this short post I will be featuring one of my handbag. I only have 3 handbag in my collection so far. Of course it is my dream to have more (which woman doesn’t) but I am very contented with what I have at the moment. This is the bag I would reach for on the days I am feeling more dressy. In my opinion, a white bag completes any outfits. And I have been using it season in season out without any problem. The size is small but it could fit my essentials very well such as handphone, key holder, card holder, a few make up and a shade. I still remember getting my La Martina at Forte dei Marmi, Italy. It was my first designer handbag and every time I use this handbag it reminds me of the beautiful memories I had on my travels there and also a reminder that I bought it with my hard earn money. I am very proud of this bag and I just know I will keep it in my collection for the longest time. Do you guys have a bag that has a special memory attached to it? Share it in the comments below, it would be lovely to hear your bag memories.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

#pickabookFriday – Have a Little Faith

Hello everyone! We have come to the end of the work week (for most of us) and that means it is time for another #pickabookFriday instalment. This week's feature is another Mitch Albom's gem – Have a Little Faith.

Sometimes we all need a little pick me up book and this book fits in just well. Please don't be discouraged by the title of the book with the perception that it might be purely religious. I understand religious books might not be everyone's cup of tea. This is a beautifully written story of a remarkable journey between two worlds – two men, two faiths, two communities – that will inspire you in one way or another.  It is a story about how two distinct men use their faith for survival. In this book, the author reflects on different aspects of life such as  how to endure when difficult things happen, what is heaven, issue of intermarriage, elements of forgiveness, doubting God and the importance of faith in trying times.

Why this book is profound? Mitch Albom pens his magic in this book which successfully delivers the message that there is a profound comfort and hope in believing in something bigger than oneself. Some quotes I would like to share with my readers,

"Faith is about doing. You are how you act, not just how you believe.”

“You are not your past.”

Although this true story is based on the author's journey, it is a story in which everyone can connect. There is something to take away at the end of the read.

Hope you guys enjoy reading as much as I do. Do share your favourite books in the comments so all of us could be inspired to add more books our collection! Happy Weekend everyone!
