YSL Purchase Experience in Honolulu, Hawaii

If you have not already been informed, Hawaii is one of the best places to purchase luxury goods in the United States. Official Yves Saint Laurent boutiques sell all items for prices that are 20% lower than the online listed prices for the U.S. website.

Other luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Valentino, Dior, Jimmy Choo, and etc also offer cheaper prices. Not all brands offer a discount on all of their products. For example, Gucci's small leather goods are 20% off and their bags are 25% off. There is no discount for shoes and belts. The tax in Honolulu is around 4.5% meanwhile, it is around 8.9% in New York City. With this in mind, I wanted to purchase a luxury purse during my Hawaii trip.

Le Parmentier Yucca Suede and Leather Shoulder Bag

Recently, I have been gifted with this lovely leather crossbody bag from Forzieri. The bag is from the brand Le Parmentier and the style is the Yucca bag. I opted for the bag in the nude color because I thought it was the perfect blush shade. This post is based off my honest opinions on the bag.

Summer Favorites 2019

The sun is vibrantly shining! Sunsets are at a later time. Summer is my favorite time of the year. I want to share my favorites for the summer of 2019! 



I typically do not go for leopard printed clothing but this dress from Anthropologie really caught my eye in the store. The first thing that drew me to the dress was the light fabric. I really enjoy wearing light, flowy, and easy pieces for the summertime. Currently, I am very into dresses that have buttons down the middle and a slit on the bottom. I also wanted to try wearing a piece with a leopard print. Lastly, this piece was on sale and additionally 25% off so this dress was asking to be purchased. 


What I’ve Gotten out of Blogging and Micro-influencing




1. People will reach out for tips and advice and I learned that it’s okay to refuse
I typically answer simple questions regarding blogging and micro-influencing but I will not offer my time to grow someone’s account, especially if I get nothing in return. One weakness is being too nice. This is something I used to have an issue with. If you constantly lend a helping hand, their expectation might be: “oh he/she will always be there to help me” or people will just use you as a stepping stone for their own benefit.
