Hello lovelies!

I am coming home to the UK in two weeks so thought I would use this opportunity to do another HUGE blogsale!

When I have done blogsales in the past I almost feel like I have to justify why I am selling things but I do have a genuine reason for selling everything-am happy to answer any questions you have about why I am selling it and how long I have had it for but 90% of the time the answers will be I have something else extremely similar/it's the wrong colour for me/I have more than one of this item AND I have had it for less than 1 year.  Remember because I live abroad and don't like paying Dubai prices, 95% of what I buy is online so occasionally I do make mistakes and buy stuff that doesn't work for me.

So here we go:

The "rules"
**To purchase, please leave me a comment with the item(s) you would like.  First come first served.  Happy to answer any questions-you can leave a comment, email or tweet me @expatmuaddict with your question.  If you can't comment on the post (you should be able to post as a guest) please just tweet or email me**
1-Prices are in GBP and I would prefer to only post to the UK-if you are an international buyer please leave me a comment and I will quote you on postage
2-Postage will be £2.50 +30p for each additional item and will be sent on a trackable service.  I am willing to reduce postage on smaller items.
3-Payment is by paypal only-please leave me a comment or email me with you paypal address and I will invoice you
4-If you tell me you want an item between now and Wednesday 4th September it will be posted to you on Thursday 5th September.  If you would like to buy something after the 5th September it will be posted to you sometime during the next week-I will be on holiday in Cornwall so depends when I can find a post office! 
5-Payments must be made within 24 hours

Please use google for swatches-I have been honest about the size and condition of each item.

Finally I am selling this beautiful saffiano leather Michael Kors Large Hamilton tote bag.  It is in the colour red with gold trim and was bought from Macy's in NYC in March 2013.  The red colour was exclusive to Macys.  It has never been used and is still in its dust bag with the tag still on it.  Reason for selling is it's too small for me on a day to day basis.

I bought it for $358 + tax.  These bags retail for £310 on Selfridges website.  I am asking £200 for it.  It's brand new and in perfect condition.  All the specs of the bag are on Michael Kors-just google Michael Kors Large Hamilton Tote.  Postage will £10 extra. SOLD

Happy shopping guys!

PS if you live in Dubai where I live and want to purchase anything please just use the GBP/AED spot rate to convert the price to AED and I am happy to sell at that price for cash (or paypal).  Please arrange to collect from me from my office location which is DIFC in Dubai-thanks!
