Yes, I recently purchased the classic Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the Nano size, I absolutely love it and used it way too often maybe. This is the black with silver hardware as well as in the material of pebbled grained calfskin. It come with detachable strap with lanyard clasp fastening. When I was purchasing the bag, I was deciding between the baby or nano size for a very long time. I like how the baby size have a zipper pocket inside, but the nano does not. But the reason why I went for the nano is because I like to wear most of bag cross body, just a lot easier to get around the city. The baby size looks very awkward and big on my body when I wear it cross body. Despite the cons of not having a zipper inside, I have no issue with it. Also, when you look at the nano, you probably think it will fit nothing. Nope, you are so wrong, don't underestimate a bag by its look. It fits as much stuff as my Chanel Le Boy bag! On a happier note, this nano size is around $500CAD cheaper than the baby size,  so I think this bag is a big winner!

Many of you may notice that I recently purchased a new bag from Saint Laurent. My very first designer bag ever that I purchased was this grey Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the size small, with gold hardware. Yes, it is one of those bag I regret buying. I probably only get to use this bag 3 times a year. The size was not practical for me, especially this is the older version of SDJ and smooth leather, despite the size of the bag, it was not spacious at all and it is fairly heavy in my opinion. When I purchased this bag, I had an idea of everyday bag, a bag that I will be able to fit all my essentials for both school or work. I was wrong, whenever I carry this bag out I feel like an office lady who work a 9-5 job or something along that line. The bag itself was just too big for an everyday bag and it gets in the way of everything, also it does not fit my macbook pro 11", it was the biggest disappointment in my bag collection. I thought about selling this bag for a while now, the only two reasons that I still haven't sell it, it is because firstly it's my first ever designer bag! I never ever purchased a designer bag prior to this one, it took me a very long time to decide to purchase this bag and it was a pretty pricey item for me at the moment. Secondly, SDJ is always a classic piece to have in past decades. However, the cons honestly outweighs the pros... 
Also on the side note, the size small is almost double the price of the nano size! But I wear the nano one almost everyday, because of the size and colour. I've learned my lessons, to purchase smarter and wiser! Don't be like the old Chloe! 

Love,
Chloe

3 Lessons I Learned in 2018

A new year, a new chapter in life, 365 more new chances. Everyday is a day of lesson and changes. 2018 was a rough year for me, a year full of learning, especially learning from the mistakes of yesterday. Here's the three lessons that I learned in 2018:  1. Never Settle For Less It does not matter whether its relationship, career, friendships or purchases. Applying this idea in all aspects of life. Make sure to set your goal and standards for everything. In 2018, I've made some wrong investment and settling for less than you deserve. Often, we all know who we are, know what we want, and know what we deserve never settle for less. People always connect with this idea only to people. However, when it comes to career, I personally learned to never settle for less than your worth and what you deserve, and never force yourself to do what you don't like. When it come to purchasing, I've learned my lesson of never settle for a cheaper alternative. Always follow your
