His side of the story

Two strangers, a man and a woman. Waiting, dreaming, wondering around on a deserted platform. No strings that seem to attach, aren't there? Maybe, if you look closer you will see some comparisons; they both wear black, both wrapped in leather and both carry some fine pieces of Italian craftsmanship. Yes, that must be it; these two share a love for leather bags! I already told you in the...


What to put in your travel bag?

I love to go away for the weekend. A quick visit to the sun, a romantic citytrip or a family visit is just the perfect getaway to relax and charge your battery.

Always a challenge of course as you have to make smart choices to make sure that everything fits within this hand luggage bag,...

Paul’s Boutique Bag

When I studied in London five years ago I had a special Saturday ritual. I loved waking up late as I worked in the local pub on Friday night, going to Portobello Road, visiting TopShop on Oxford Circus whereafter I would dress up for the big party night out. I don't know about you, but when I go abroad, it is easy to be infatuated by a local fashion brand....

What to wear to a wedding?

The wedding season is on! It is time for love, time to party and time to dress up. It is a big day full of joy and emotion. It takes a lot of planning and organizing and I guess that the easiest part is saying "yes" to the question, "Will you take this man/woman to be your lawfully wedded husband/wife".
