Pimp My Speedy

I just got home from a “no boys allowed” brunch and I went to check the mail. I saw a package and I was shocked to see who it was from. It was for me, but I just ordered this item and wasn’t expecting it until next week!

A few months ago (either October or November) I was watching a random haul on youtube and she mentioned this website, called Pimp My Speedy. I immediately bookmarked the page and I had to do a little search so I can give her credit for pointing me to this website. This is their purpose according to the website:

We are your online store for solutions to sagging Speedy bags! Our various products will help provide your bag the classy structured look, additional pockets for organization and most of all, STOP SAGGING!

And they’re not just for the Speedy!

Shortly after looking at the site and being very interested, I emailed them to see if I had to get the base board and the organizer or if the organizer works well on its own in providing structure to the bag. I received a response within 24 hours and I was very happy with that. I was told that both aren’t necessary and may add extra weight if you did use both but the organizer is fine on it’s own. I placed my order Thursday morning for the organizer only and as I said, the package was in my inbox today (Saturday). I immediately took it out and inspected it. I am very pleased with the quality and price. I never expected it to look so well put together for $22! If you have a Louis Vuitton bag I am telling you to check out this website. Everything is reasonable and there is fast, inexpensive shipping (at least to me in Washington).

I didn’t take a shot of the bag with the organizer in it to compare it to the bag without the organizer because there was nothing in the organizer to help hold the shape of the bag. It was just taken out of the package so I didn’t expect any difference in the shape. I will post a picture with it in use so you can see though. I used my speedy a few days ago and it was resting on a chair so that’s why it looks so wrinkled right now. Oops.

Hope you found this post useful!

My Current YouTube Obsession

Over the weekend I was watching DulceCandy (who I mentioned in my other blog is a huge inspiration to me) and I started watching other random hauls and videos. I came across a make-up video with a title that drew me in at first glance: “Basic Makeup: A whole bunch of tips”. This struck me because of the word “basic”. I don’t wear a full face of make-up so whenever there is some simplified version of something I’m all for it. After watching this video I kept going through the vlogger’s videos and I skipped through the stuff I know I can’t do yet but just tried to get to know her. I can say I’m currently following her on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Her name is Tatiana Ward and she goes by BeatFaceHoney. Besides the basic tutorial, I liked that she is using products people with darker skin tones tend to use. YouTube has been very instrumental in helping people’s careers take off (the talented and not so talented) but I love coming across people like Tatiana who are down to earth and genuinely care about helping you out, and I hope that she is able to have her career really take off asap. Over the weekend I watched a haul where the person was so concerned about the way their hair and nails looked that I don’t even remember half of what her haul was about, and I wasn’t interested in watching anything else from her.

I’ll definitely keep posting my YouTube obsessions on here because in this age of sharing, it would be selfish to keep such great finds to myself! Check out the vid below and let me know what you think!
