Merry Christmas from Louis Vuitton!

I must admit that the weather is not great for Christmas. It has been raining for the past few days in Singapore with flash flood in a few areas. The sky is so gloomy (It reminds me of the weather in the UK). However, it won't wipe-off the festive's moods in me! It certainly doesn't affect Louis Vuitton when it comes to gift giving.

For this year's Christmas, I received a nice gift courtesy of Louis Vuitton (Thank you so much!). Inside the box, is a very beautiful set of metal cubes engraved with LV Monogram and Damier canvas. Each cube has a magnet in it so you have to sort of juggle them around to make sure they are attached correctly.

Hermès Le Cheval Horse Cadena

I am always eager to know what design of charms Hermes is going to release each year for the theme. Like this little horse cadena ... I am not sure which year this was released but it is certainly not new. Sterling silver cadenas are prized among Hermes collectors because they are not always available in every store and some designs are not for commercial sale.

Hermès Chou Chou or Silk Hair Pompons

These silk pompons were initially made as a bag charm a few years ago. They were only available for a short period of time and were not so popular then. For Japan market, Hermes produced them again as hair pompons which are equally cute. They were available in many colours and come in a small drawstring silk pouch to keep them in. Unfortunately, you can only find these hair pompons in Japan.

Hermès Scotts Square in Singapore

Hermes has finally opened its store on Scotts Square on 9th December 2011. This will be the 5th Hermes store in Singapore after Liat Towers, Takashimaya, DFS Galleria and Marina Bay Sands.

I didn't manage to attend the party in the morning so by midday the shelf displays were nearly empty except for one or two bags. The store was crowded earlier I was told and the bags must have been snapped up very quickly.

Fortunately, I was still able to get my hands on the limited edition items for the store opening. Something in 100% silk which is the Brides de Gala Twilly in pink. It is also available in regular scarf version.

Balenciaga Mini Mini First Fluo Keychains

For Fall/Winter 2011/2012 collection, Balenciaga has released its latest collection of mini mini first (MMF) keychains in fluo. Yep, bright colors for winter are just great. There are 5 colors in fluo collection and all of them are equally nice to look at.

Do not be fooled by its small appearance because this tiny baby can fit in quite a few items, i.e. coins, lipstick and other small items. The lobster clip is not very strong though so I suggest using a ball chain or some sort if you want to hang it on your bag. You do not want to lose it!

For those who have not got this MMF, please order one quickly as they are selling out fast!
