Happy Birthday Lil Crissyr!!!!!

Happy Birthday!!!!
Can you believe my blog is 3 years old! I have enjoyed having a blog, sharing my ideas, fashion favourites and showing a little side of me that not everyone gets to see. I have also learnt a lot about myself since creating this blog. 

1- I am camera shy.
Yes, ok, I can do a selfie because that's just me in front of the camera and most of the time it's me being silly (Thank god for SnapChat). But when it comes to somebody else taking my picture (thanks Jocelyn), I go all camera shy and nervy. I have been practising though, so hopefully my face will not look too awkward next time you see me. Ha. 

2 - I love shopping and looking for bargains.
My name is Crissy and I am a shopaholic (Hi Crissy). I am not going to lie, my wardrobe is probably bursting out of the seams and my bank account surely hates me right now. I love clothes! To my friends, this is a given and one that remind me off every chance they get. 

3- Managing time to write is hard sometimes.
Blogging isn't my full time job (as much as I would love it to be). I have another job so finding time to blog isn't always easy. But when I do blog, I love to write a few at a time and spend time on it. I have a few ready but I just need to find time to shoot. 

4 - I am still learning new things. 
Since I started blogging, I have begun to explore fashion more and trying new styles such as my knee high boots and even my new timberland boots (whose debut is coming soon). We all know my love for black, but now I am trying to add a bit of colour into my wardrobe too. I'm still getting use to this so stay with me. Ha. 

5 - I love the my camera.
I an not going to stand here and say that I know what I am doing because in actual fact, I haven't got a clue but...I am learning. Ever since I bought my Olympus Pen, I cannot put it down. It is a lovely camera but it boy do I need to go on a course. 

I know I always say this, but I really am looking forward to sharing more with you all on LilCrissyr. I have got a few things coming up so I will continue to try and post as much as I can. I have now scheduled myself so that I post once a week. I am hoping to stick to this. But before I leave, I do want to say a massive thank you to those of you who do take the time to visit and leave me messages and emails. It is truly appreciated and I love receiving them so Thank You once again.

March - item of the month

This item really shouldn't just be for the month I thought it would be a good idea to make you more aware of them. We use them all the time. I absolutely love them. 

Yes I am talking about the handbag! My love for handbags really begun thanks to Sienna Miller and Nicole Richie and a certain Balenciaga bag. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag and it is still one my favourite bags to date. I bought my first one in blue when I was at Uni. It was a blue motorcycle bag. I loved it. I used it to death. When I say this I mean that the colour went a horrible colour because of so much use. Don't worry readers, the bag is being repaired as we speak. What I loved about the bag was that it has character, it has a bit of edge to it and to those who know me, will know that I too have a bit of edge when it comes to my wardrobe. 

My collection started there and gradually began to grow. Since then I have built on my Balenciaga family and also introduced other members to the small collection. My current favourite hangbags are my Givenchy Antigona bags. Now I have to admit now, that no I do not earn lots of money. Every bag that I buy I think about first and save for it. Not all my bags are bought straight from the shops either; some are second hand. This is also a reason why it also takes me a while to buy a bag. I check that they are 100% legit. I do not mind if they are second hand as I always think that I will give them a loving home. But please, before you purchase, make sure that it is genuine. 

My favourite bags are bags that I can use for different occasions. In particular bags that I can wear across my body. So what next for my collection. One of my dream bags is a Chanel jumbo. This bag is a classic and one that I will always love. This bag I would buy from the store as I would love to experience tho whole Chanel experienceBuying this bag would be a dream, but right now it is only a dream. So...what's your favourite bag??
