Chanel Ivory Caviar Boy Bag in Old Medium

I’m in the midst of working on a lot of exciting posts for the new year. Some that are long overdue (like my handbag one –ย coming soon!) and other topics, that are a little more personal.

As always, I turn to you lovely readers and ask you, is there anything in particular you’d want to see on here? Anything more of? Less of? Any specific topic(s)? Whether it’s relating to style, motherhood, beauty, interior.. Let me know!

Lastly, in case you missed it, I broke down all of my favorite beauty products in hair, makeup and skincare and answered all of your questions, for those who asked. Keep em’ coming!

    Hi Helena,
    love the blog, been following for a year or so now. Just wondering if you have any product recommendations or tips for growing your hair? mine tends to break at the ends quite a bit!

    Great style, and I love DUMBO!


  • marsela

    I am expecting my first boy in June and I would love to see more about first time mom essentials, must haves, tips. I’m so over whelmed coming up with a registry. So much crap… what do you actually need?

  • Lorna

    You look amazing, Helena! I’m very excited to see the blog post on your bag! I would absolutely love to see a post on your favourite jeans. We have a lot of the same taste in denim and as I’m a denim addict, that would be amazing! I’d also love an updated closet post if you were up for that. I think a tour of it would be amazing!


  • Gitta

    This look just proves that simplicity is key. Love it!!!

    I need a post about your workout routine – you promosed one a looong time ago!

  • A-ca

    Hi, I would like to see you jeans collection and how you decide to pick up a pair versus not. All of your jeans fits really nicely!

  • brett

    I love your skincare posts and of course I love your style so always enjoy your outfit posts! I trust your opinion more than most bloggers so love hearing about the products you love!

  • Grace

    Would love to learn how you decide what big purchases to make and if you buy retail (or purchases used items on Tradesy or other similar sites). Would eventually love a Chanel Boy bag, but they’re so pricey!

  • annie

    I love the simplicity of this outfit ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Gabrielle

    Would love to know more about:
    1) Your shopping philosophy. What stores to do you always hit and do you go shop to pass time or do you shop with goals and objectives in mind?
    2) How often do you splurge on shoes/bags or investment pieces as a blogger?
    3) How does your husband feel about blogging and showcasing your life online/social media? Does he help with photography, aka: “Instagram husbands” lol. I stopped blogging bc my husband was getting upset that I had my phone in my hand 24/7 and couldn’t live in the moment hah. How do you juggle all of that and be a fab mama!?


  • Cyran

    I’d love to read more motherhood posts and skincare posts. But definitely love the personal style posts, so I’m looking forward to more of those as the season changes – really like your style.


  • Ellie

    I rarely/never leave comments on any blog but had to post this..

    you were the first blogger I ever followed and will forever be my favorite and in my opinion the original true fashion blogger in this world of blogging..

    your style is second to none, your taste is chic, effortless, timeless and classic, you truly love fashion and anyone can see that you are not blogging to get paid for your readers to click links or to work on collaborations solely to get incentives..

    your opinions come from the heart and not to mislead your followers into purchasing items/clothing/products so that you can benefit…

    wherever your blog leads you in 2017, I will be right there following along and cant wait to see what the new year brings!! <3 <3

  • Adriana

    The Black Blush

  • Cheyanne

  • Kate

    Fitness + nutrition posts, for sure! Also your day-to-day makeup routine would be great. And some video content!

  • Kate

    I would love to see some posts on how to style items in different ways or outfit ideas for different situations.
