A wise woman once told me, “Once you buy your first designer bag, the rest will follow as if you’re buying veggies at the supermarket.”

So, so true.

In the past two months, I’ve gone from couldn’t-give-a-damn to GIMME! when it comes to designer bags. Then, bags = sacks with handles. Yesterday, I told Mr. Manx that I wouldn’t say no to a Louis Vuitton Ebony Damier Speedy 30, but it was pretty common, and so if he was feeling rich this Christmas, perchance he might consider gifting his spouse with a Chanel 2.55 Reissue 226 Black Matte Distressed Leather Black Flap.

Welcome to my blog!

My blog-name is Katie but I will not respond if you call me that in real life because it's not my real name. Yes, I do practise virtual-world paranoia. No, I do not enjoy stalkers. But I do enjoy writing and having folks reading said writing, so welcome to my world. It's nice to meet you.

Don’t say I didn’t say this…

Disclaimers: 1) I cannot help but bitch about work sometimes, but everything here comes under the realm of personal remarks, and nothing here is said in my professional capacity. Nor does anything here reflect the opinion of the institutions that employ me. This is just me shooting off. 2) Most identities have been anonymized, particularly those of folks I know on a personal basis. Same goes for my workplaces. However, commercial and public places and figures remain named. Otherwise some things just wouldn't make sense. 3) Links and sources have been provided where appropriate and possible. They are not meant to challenge anyone's ownership. If this causes any discomfort or offence, please let me know.
