TOP 5 designer shoes on eBay up to £50 // jak kupic buty Manolo Blahnik, Saint Laurent, Dior do 250 zl na eBay
As I mentioned a few times in here, I'm an eBay addict. I can't sleep at nights because I'm browsing through all of the designers clothes/shoes/bags/accessories endlessly. That's how I always end up with over 80 auctions on my WATCHING list. Some of them are not my size so I thought I might share my treasures with you guys! Instead of spending another £50 in ZARA, get yourself Manolo Blahnik, be more like Carrie Bradshaw not like all of the mannequins from high street shops. I don't have any problem with Zara of course, I just like spending my money in a smarter and more exciting way. It's also a myth that on eBay you can only buy used used and dirty clothing. Most of the items I bought were completely new, some of them still in a box and authenticity card and I have never paid more than £50! Sounds amazing, right? So have a look what have I found for you this week. And if you manage to win anything, let me know please! I love hearing about great eBay deals, seriously :D
Jak wspomniałam tu już wielokrotnie, jestem nieco uzależniona od zakupów na eBay. Nie śpię po nocach, bo wertując kolejne strony w poszukiwaniu butów/torebek/ubrań od projekantów. Tak oto, pod koniec tygodnia zawsze kończę z niemal 80 aukcjami na mojej liście obserwowanych. Niektóre z nich nie są w moim rozmiarze, dlatego pomyślałam, że podzielę się z Wami tymi znaleziskami. Zamiast wydawania kolejnych 250 zł na buty z ZARY, zafundujcie sobie parę Manolo Blahnik lub YSL. Jestem przekonana, że w większości przypadków przy odrobinie szczęścia i wytrwałości, zapłacicie nawet mniej niż 200 zł łącznie z kosztami przesyłki. Nieprawdą jest, że na eBayu roi się od zużytych, brudnych ubrań. Większość rzeczy, które udało mi się kupić, była kompletnie nowa. Część z nich wciąż w oryginalnych opakowaniach i nigdy nie zapłaciłam więcej niż 250 zł (a mam w swojej kolekcji nowe, przepiękne GUCCI, jeansowe botki Dior z super-extra jeansowymi bransoletkami na kostki, vintage kitten heel Chanel, wciąż w pudełku - i wiele innych, wszystkie autentyczne!). Dlatego właśnie zerknijcie na moją listę i licytujcie. Jeśli uda Wam się coś wygrać, napiszcie! Uwielbiam słuchać o zakupach na eBayu, poważnie :D
1. Manolo Blahnik Suede Blue High Heels £50 or Best Offer
Manolo Blahnik suede heels, used for press
shoots which basically means NEW. Size UK 7, EU 40
Użyte tylko do sesji zdjęciowych, więc niemal nowe. Rozmiar 40.

Saint Laurent, skóra, wystawowy model, rozmiar 39
3. Dior Sequin Sneakers auction, used, now £21 , RRP £790 I would love to fight for those but they're not my size, so have a go everyone who is a size EU 37! Te slicznoty nie są może w najnowszej kondycji, ale cena kusząca, mając na uwadze fakt, że do lepszej kondycji na pewno można je doprowadzić. Rozmiar 37.
4. Chloe Black Leather Court Shoes size EU 39,5, auction, now £9.99
Chloe, skóra , rozmiar 39,5. Wyglądają naprawdę w porządku.
Everyone has something they want to improve, something they're not truly satisfied with. If it comes to me, one of those things is my lips. I've had treatment done to them before but unfortunately the result was disappointing. After visiting Dr Vikram from Harley Academy I learnt that previous clinics had lacked experience and skills. And after this search it seems it has been a difficult journey finding a doctor who will not overdo your lips, sausages or make you look like Jar Jar Binks's missing twin.
My problem was that my lips were asymmetrical, the top lip projects too much by the last unsuccessful treatment. Since work 2 weeks ago at Harley Academy I've never been happier with the results :D The staff are friendly, helpful and the setting is less like a hospital and more like a 5 star hotel (which is very important when you're stressed and curious whether this is gonna work or make it worse).
The treatment wasn't painful at all, the localized anesthetic worked wonderfully and my lips were immediately looking much better. We used a filler called Belotero - no lumps and my lips feel totally natural, when the anesthetic wore off :) I had a little swelling for four days after the treatment but no bruises or pain. I don't wanna be too smug but my lips feel just perfect now. I know it wasn't my last visit at Harley Academy, it's great I finally have a Doctor I can trust with my lips, no more worrying about looking like Jar Jar Binks :)
P.S. As some of you may have already noticed, I've had the braces done recently. It doesn't interfere with the lips treatment, the only aftereffect is that the lips are pushed forward a bit more than normally as you can probably see. Sorry for the dry looking lips (that's what the braces do to them all the time even a moment after using a lip balm, unfortunately). I did not put any make up, I thought it's the best way to show you how the lips really look like sauté.
Here's Harley Academy Clinics website and that's where you can find them on instagram and facebook
I've been always complaining about jackets and coats when we we're visiting the cooler parts of the world. Believe me, I know how difficult is to find a waterproof jacket which will be both warm and comfortable at the same time.This jacket has got it all. The perfect place to try it out was obviously Scotland! It doesn't make you too warm when you go on a trip in mountains because of its breathable layers. Lots of pockets ensure you can warm up your hands and your phone at the same time :D You can even adjust the waist and the cuffs by using an elastic bungee cord. Pretty cool, isn't it?
I'm almost sure that PVC over the knee boots will hit the streets this coming season. I've got my pair last year so I'm giving you some ideas for New Year's Eve party outfits that include these boots. I'm aware of the fact these are not for everyone; some might consider them too Gothic and others might not like the platform etc but I hope it will give you a bit of inspiration. Please note that all of these outfits would also look great with just a pair of simple high heels, so I advise to play with what you've got at home to style it your own way.
That black PVC dress is my eBay treasure. I was looking for a PVC one, wasn't even thinking of a fluffy trim but when I came across this little black dress I thought it may work great if the PVC quality is as good as the boots one. It transpired it is exactly the same material so I couldn't resist but wear it all together with a shiny diamond choker.
It's too late for my Christmas list to Santa Claus but I've got something I'd like to share with you. These three items I've chosen from all of the Christmas items I received recently. Although, I guess I should add my Christmas cook hat to that list. My passion for cooking passion encourages me to get myself weird cooking accessories, but that's a topic for another post :)...So let's check what have I prepared for you this time:
1. Gardeners Mini Herb Tin Set by Crabtree & Evelyn - Christmas cooking, Christmas cleaning and all of the others duties that come this winter time... Your hands deserve a good therapy afterwards so I recommend this trio! The little planting tins are a cute addition too
2. Desenio wall prints and photographs - Danish brand available online in the UK offers you a wide range of wall prints and photographs that are actually a lot nicer than generic posters. We've chosen these three frozen water themed prints to hang above the bed. Feels refreshing :D Great present idea!
3. Fig Tree St Eval Candle - I know how people love scented candles. Not difficult to notice it smelling Christmassy sweet scented candles on every corner. If you prefer something more delicate, this one should satisfy even the biggest candle opponent (trust me, I'm the one of them). Handmade in Cornwall, not too pricey and decent looking. Dear candle, you've got my recommendation.
When I spotted those white shiny boots on eBay I knew exactly the way I'm going to wear them. I remember the time when wearing white boots that type was rather shameful, now I don't feel ashamed at all. They'll look great with denim flares as well, give me some time and I'll show it in here. The puffer jacket with big one zip works perfectly too, not only because it keeps me warm, I just love the hood!
Kiedy zauwazylam te biale, blyszczace buty na eBay'u wiedzialam dokladnie do czego mi sie przydadza. Pamietam czasy, gdy noszenie bialych kozaczkow bylo raczej karygodne, aktualnie jednak nie czuje by karanie w tym wypadku bylo uzasadnione :D
From now on I have to wear glasses, Ed's made me a pair as you can see and I totally love them, if you wave at me from the distance I'll wave you back this time :D! The wine red velvet look alike coat goes well with my new appearance too, it looks a little bit paler online but the color which arrived might be even nicer. Btw it's so nice to find a little quiet spot in the center of London just off Oxford Street...
Oto ja i moje pierwsze okulary. Od teraz, gdy pomachacie do mnie z daleka, na pewno odmacham :D! Welwetowy plaszcz online wydawal sie znaczniej jasniejszy, ale musze przyznac, ze kolor, ktory dotarl jest calkiem niezly. Tak poza tym, super jest znalezc pusty zakatek w centrum Londynu tuz przy Oxford street.
It's difficult to hide that MIU MIU is currently my favourite shoe brand. I'm still hunting for a bag but in the meantime, please have a look at my new treasure! The blue woolen jacket from StyleWe is unbelievably cosy and warm, perfect for our London weather at the moment (to be honest, I didn't expect it to be even nicer than what I saw on their website!).
Trudno ukryć, że MIU MIU to aktualnie moja ulubiona marka. Wciąż poluję na jakąś super torbę, ale w międzyczasie zerknijcie na buty, które dziś do mnie przyszły. Co do niebieskiej, wełnianej kurtki ze StyleWe, jest ona niezwykle milutka w dotyku i co najważniesjze, ciepła. Szczerze mówiąc, nie spodziewałam się, że w rzeczywistości będzie jeszcze ładniejsza niż na stronce. Takie niespodzianki uwielbiam, także polecam, w razie pytań :)
