Louis Vuitton Favorite PM + 6 Key Holder

A little over three months after my first Louis Vuitton purchase, I’ve done it again.

Bitten by the Louis Vuitton bug

When I bought my Speedy 30 in January, I did so under the assumption that this would probably be my only Louis Vuitton purchase.

We don’t visit beauty counters a lot when we shop but when we do, I make sure I pay attention to anything that she likes. Fragrances aren’t something that most women buy a whole lot of. We typically buy one, maybe two, a year because they tend to be rather pricey. Continue reading
