Wish I could join @missrubyredshoes as she goes to Paris, but instead I’ll just pull out a few ‘souvenirs’ from my last trip to France: @majeofficiel dress, #celinetrio, @stephanerolland_paris fan (just a memento from his haute couture show, but I love it as much as any other souvenir), @nini_peony necklace (not a souvenir, but was sent from Paris by the gorgeous Inès Carratié), @maisonvalentino I bought from @departement_feminin (a few months after I got back from my trip) ☺️.

I’ve been eagerly awaiting this package in the mail, and it arrived today β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘. A cute-as-a-button wood button trivet by @snug️studio from @home.apparel’s online store, which boasts an amazing range of homewares (including these polkadot straws and grid Washi tapes).  Can’t wait for the @snugstudio cloud boards to be restocked, they are seriously too cute! πŸ‘ŒπŸ’•

Walked past this little alley today after a coffee @coffeebranch, and had to snap a pic, shame it was so narrow I couldn’t capture it all (I was literally backed up against a window/wall) πŸ˜… (at Coffee Branch)

On the one hand I feel sheepish with my ‘thank you’ posts, because I don’t see many others doing them. On the other hand I’ve been doing them since I said thank you to my first 1000 followers, and it seems like a ‘Brigadeiro tradition’ now, just like my ‘#brigsmacs’ pics ☺️ but most of all, I just really want to say thank you to each one of you, especially those I get to interact with on this amazing community that is @instagram, you put a 😊 on my 😢, thank you πŸ‘! #thankyou #80k

Had an embarrassing/awkward conversation whilst shopping today 😬:

SA: Where did you get that Chanel bag?!?
Me (a little embarrassed and blushing): Paris ☺️

SA: Which store?
Me (a little confused, brow furrowed, blush deepens): Chanel 😢?

SA: Oh, so it’s real?
Me (feeling more awkward): Uhm, yes…(thinking: No, I went to the ‘fake’ section of the store?)

SA: Is it leather?
Me (Can I go yet? 😳): Uhm, yes… (No, I got it from the diffusion line Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld, and got the pleather version).

SA: Oh, yeah. It’s better to pay a little more and keep it longer.
Me: yes… (beetroot red and slowly shuffling away)

Does anyone else get shy and awkward when asked about where you bought something? I feel so much more comfortable when I can just say something like “Zara or Topshop”, or my usual answer (because it’s true): “the Internet”. πŸ™Š #chanelboy #boybag
