I love red

It is my all time favourite colour

Just like my Auntie Rose (she isn't red, she just loves the colour too!)

There is something about the boldness of the colour that makes me feel like I can take on the world

Ok, maybe not the world, but it makes me smile and that's a good place to start.

My red purse is by far my most extravagant purchase of all time.

It is the single most expensive thing i have ever purchased that I did not need.

My sister made me do it! 

We were in New York way way back in 2006 ish (i think) and we 'popped in' to the Louis Vuitton shop. 

And there it was.

Calling me.

After 10 minutes of ooooooing we left.

How could i spend that amount of money on a purse.

For the first (and last) time ever I had disposable income.

We went back in.

I paid $555 

Isn't it ridiculous.

However I've done a little bit of maths.

Over the past 12 years this purse has cost me 7.89 pence per day.

I think that's what is called an investment.

That's what i'm telling myself anyway.

I have no intention of replacing it anytime soon, even if the stitching is starting to go and the leather is starting to wear.

I'm sure there are some people out there who would be horrified at the state of this luxury purchase. But I bought it to be used. 

Come on, tell me, what is the craziest thing you have splashed out on, that was just for you?

I promise I won't tell anyone.
