When I saw this clutch a year ago at my good friend Elaine’s blog at Toronto Beauty Reviews, I immediately fell in love with it and since then, it has always remained on my wishlist. Evidently, each of Minling Pan Studio’s creation was thoughtfully designed and crafted with a lot of heart to it. This vintage cologne bottle clutch is so original, it’s an absolute crowd pleasure and one piece that you definitely want to have in your collection as it is well-made, high quality and 100% adorable.

With such a fast paced world and everything being tweeted, posted, snap chatted in an instant, the art of writing is slowly moving towards being extinct. The truth of the matter is, there are plenty of us who loves the good old pen and paper, of writing our thoughts down and planning our day. There’s something serene, cathartic and visibly tangible about writing. And when you write it on something as pretty as this Kate Spade planner, it’s even more inspiring as let’s face it, we all love pretty things, inspiring things that takes us away, if only for a moment. Lost in our thoughts. Now isn’t that such a lovely present to give her at Valentines Day?
