Now I’m a touch of a fan of
Louis Vuitton,  classic , very well made pieces, some vintage pieces can be picked up from respectful sellers for great prices.
I have many of the “season” pieces but in later years , I’ve kept to the more elegant styles.
They don’t date.

A classic Chanel, a timeless look.
This is a 80 s one.  A huge increase in the bag happens in May,  buy before or go vintage.

(My friend Carl @ablokeseyeview just posted a blog on “Nip and Man” @NipandMan  after I told him to check out the range) check out His page, really witty and proper northern bloke, with great male reviews.

The  it’s moisturise time
Guys get break outs too , most don’t want to do “man make-up ( come to that later)
So the best way to keep those blemishes at bay, is too use the
Face B4 serum, it’s designed too help control break outs,  leaves the skin soft but No shine , great for guys skin.

It has fantastic results.

Now if you wish to skip , far enough,  but for those interested.
CC creams,  are awesome to help “colour correct” the skin,  hiding uneven skin, breaks outs, dark circles.
They are light weight, very easy to blend and undetectable on the skin with the right match.
A really great one packed with vitamin E.
