MOM STYLE // LONGCHAMP LE PLIAGE AN ALL SEASON TOTE



Hello! Let me start the first quarter of the year with a series called Mom Style. And hopefully through this series i will have the chance to introduce other moms as well who brings light and inspiration as an individual and as a mom through their daily life, without forgetting herself. But for now let me add and combine all my personal interest and thoughts and write it all down here through this series.

There are times that the busy days of mom life left you loss out of track with yourself to wholeheartedly serve your love ones no? So a blissful chance indeed when there are moments you pick a pieces of your old self and incorporate a dose of your current joy in your day to day life. Like going to spa, treating yourself to the nursery, or just try to shop at your favorite store ( and try to see yourself  infront of their full size mirror and compare that with your favorite mirror pal at home,😰 Does anyone can relate?😜 ) or travel once in a while if that sounds good to you. And even a sleepover with your good friends and chat all night if that brings you happiness. Just some thoughts that will help ourselves to be inspired and wonder in our everyday living as an individual. A dash of joy in our everyday life is important, right?


Now lets talk about this series. If you've been here for a while now, you know how i'm fond of bag since the beginning. and if you're a new visitor, i had to stop purchasing years back due to priorities. So for now let me start this month with an article i love too talking about.  Bag!. Do you come to think what kind of bag did not leave your closet all these the years? That there are types whom you are fond carrying everyday and there are also a piece you only like looking at. Though Longchamp tote is not the bag i first hand carry with me, but it's a kind of bag that i'm fan of to have all through these years. And if you know me, i easily get hook when i really like something and it's hard for me to move on,  and this brand let me do that over and over again.

So now, let's talk about why i'm hooked at this all time season tote.

FABRIC

Personally, i love their limited collections of Le Pliage canvas. The good thing with limited edition is that you can have the Le Pliage collection in different fabric, printed or not. Same with leather handle, it comes in different color from the usual Le Pliage line, and you can pick two shades in each season from the collection of prints. Luckily i have the chance to get a new one from the autumn collection which shown here below. Comes in a satin canvas with an exotic crocodile scale effect. While the old one seems like a jacquard floral print, while i still have the regular one in nylon. All fabric is lightweight that makes them a go to tote for  travelers as well.



COLOR 

I love bold and deep colors and Longchamp have a wide variety to choose from. Name it and you can have it all. All posted photos are unedited to let me show you the true shade, in daylight. 


DURABILITY

Base on my usage, they can last for years as long as it is properly taken care of. I just shake them off and make sure there is no traces of dirt left inside. And if necessary, i wipe mine with wipes and air dry before putting back to closet. The first one i have purchased is still with me, in mint condition, from Spring 2012 collection.


SIZE 

Usually i picked the medium/large size. The only downside is that it can become slouchy if you put too much inside. But recently i added the small size tote and find it more perfect for my liking. Shown below is the size comparison. 


STYLE

I adore that you can wear it everyday if you want to. Simple yet chic. Classy but not too flashy. A perfect tote for my casual look, i used mine with trouser and in rare times even with a dress. 


What kind of bag are with you all these years? What do you think of Longchamp Le Pliage? Do you have one still, and in use? or are you over it?








*Disclaimer
This is not a sponsored post. LongChamp has been a favorite brand of my mine since i started being fond of bags. All thoughts and opinions are my own and no way told me to do so.

LIFE // NEW YEAR THOUGHTS


Happy new year everyone! We are still on holiday vacation mode but ready to go back to school this week. Also, taking advantage of the time to reflect on life, on what's gonna be about, on what will matters most, and feeling hopeful for a fresh new year start.

The last time i did a new year's resolution is on my high school days, it's always a part to do a resolution after coming back from a holiday vacation. As far as i remember, from that time after, i labeled mine with "goals" and not a resolution anymore. 

So here goes my list;

On Motherhood:

Listen and Be Present- Since i find inspiration about the things that i love ( home, life,  style, beauty and motherhood ) and learn about different cultures and tips on a day life through social media, but there are also time that it affects my communications in some point. Scrolling on and off on phone takes a lot of time too, right? Though i'm not good in sacrificing things that i love that help me grow as a person, but i also do my best to try and find solution when it's needed to be. So on this part i need to find time to balance myself between being online without sacrificing anything. Thinking of having a days or a week off in a month to refresh and balance things out is one solution that i consider. 

On Career:

Time Management - This year i decided to make a room and spend time working. To be productive in some way that that will help me grow as a person. Being away from work for so long help me to feel that i'm retired on my career, but it isn't. Though i love and enjoy my life now, but a part of me still miss it. Life now thought me that a passion continue to keep burning inside of you, it only need to help you focus and kick yourself out to start doing what you believe in, and have the determination to keep moving. Last year, i made a step back on writing to focus on personal matter. However, this year, i'm determine to make an effort and time for it. It feels good to know that you still have a dream inside of you and have a chance to make it a reality. To earn and to save and to help compensate my love one as well is a goal to fulfill. So for this year, it's all about working hard and make a room for it. It doesn't matter how big or small i can go but it's more about  making a vision a reality that matters.

On Beauty:

The good thing about aging and taking good care of your skin at an early stage is you finally see ultimate results when you age. It payback time, literally. Thinking about all the application of creams even though you are too sleepy at night make it all worth it.And at this point you don't need to worry about aging cause you feel that you're at at your best, you age gracefully, the way you wanted to be. So as i always tell, prevention is better than treatment, always. Right?

Again the topic is all about beauty that's why i talk so much ha ha. So for this year, i will continue to test new products and replenish some favorites. Still on a goal to combat  hyper pigmentation, lifting, mostly around the jawline and firming as well. I have some skincare reviews on the list too and working on a blog post. So stay tuned.

On Family:

Still on our list to travel and explore new places. For now, we still don't have a place in mind to visit but as always, travel once a year is a must. To help us become more closer, rejuvenate, and to help us bond outside our comfort zone. This becomes a family tradition for years now that we enjoy and i took advantage of this kind of moment, too. While we all have the time to make it happen.

On Home:

This year is about home improvement. STILL. Painting, fixing and changing details in some portion  of the house as a minor aspect. And also positively thinking that our kitchen renovation will be over until the end of this year, hopefully. A major goal indeed! 

Friends, I'm looking at a hopeful, brighter and healthier 2019! I wish and pray to achieve what we have in mind and what our heart desires. What about you? What's your major goal for this year? 


Till again, 
Angie
