Tips for Buying Designer Handbags Online

Sharing my tips for buying both new and vintage designer handbags online. Who to trust, how to spot fakes and tips on getting the best price.

ADVERTISING
As content creation is our business and how we earn our living you will see advertising in our content from time to time in different forms:
We are very selective about what brands we work with on paid/sponsored content creation and as a rule we don't work with any brand that we don't already or wouldn't spend our own money on. We are incredibly proud of all our brand partnership content and it will always be disclaimed in the most transparent way possible so you know exactly what is and 'AD'.
Because we don't work with a large amount of brands on sponsored content we do rely on our YouTube ad revenue. Any adverts you watch during the duration of our videos will earn us a small percentage of 'ad revenue' from YouTube and we really appreciate you watching the adverts in full (and not skipping them), but only if and when you can. We also know that time is precious so no pressure.
We also use 'Affiliate Links' in the description boxes below our videos and if you make a purchase via these links we will earn a small percentage of commission depending on the sale amount. Not all links are affiliate links but just assume they are
Any items/links marked with '[AD - Pr products]' are products which have been 'gifted' from the respective brands without a contract for sponsored content. This is still classed as a form of advertising because nothing is ever "free", brands are gaining exposure to our audience by us featuring them, so these items are marked as 'AD-Pr product' in the description box but we are under no obligation to feature these items. And as with our paid content, we never accept gifting/pr products from brands that we don't already or wouldn't spend our money on. If we have received a press discount on anything featured this will also be disclaimed.

Just as a comparison of cost difference for one of my large 3.2kg candles:
Cost to buy from Zara Home: £79.99
Cost to make at home: £32.32
Breakdown:
Wax: £14.07
Scent: £18.00
5 x Wicks: £0.25
Container: Re-used

Obviously there's an initial cost of buying your equipment but it's definitely far more cost effective to make your own scented candles.

More detailed footage of renovating this room can be found in our previous home vlogs here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLy02M74DxwkaTiSG7awRxtVmqOmTHxThC

PLEASE NOTE: This fireplace renovation took place over a period of a few months as and when we could amidst all the other renovation tasks but we have labelled how many days it would have taken to do it all in one go to give a rough idea of time scale for each part. The lounge still isn't fully finished but it's a work in progress.
