    i am so excited - i have just bought a Mulberry Bayswater handbag (which i have wanted for YEARS) for a really good price. I am not going to use it until i get to goal (and quit smoking!) but i am just so pleased, i used the money i have saved from not going out and not having takeaways!!!!
    this is the one - Mulberry - Luxury English Fashion

    anyone splurged on themselves recently to celebrate their weight loss??

    black in darwin leather! i told my boyfriend it was an investment. when he still looked dubious i told him to add up how much he has spent on beer and takeaways since i have been on the diet and then if it came to less than i spent on the bag he could disaprove all he wants. he looked very sheepish!

    Gorgeous bag, now I'm wildly jealous... I've wanted a real mulberry bag for years. I bought a knock off one at Christmas, but haven't used it yet.

    some of the knock off ones are great quality though, i looked at them. but they aren't cheap either! i got mine (the seller authenticated it) for £235 off ebay, the only problem with it is there is a screw missing from the clasp, mulberry said they would fix it for free which is good news. they are such good quality.

    Oh I think I might just get one as well, to be honest I thought they'd be an awful lot more expensive.
    Okay, it's a choice between a Mulberry handbag (black) or getting laser hair removal on my legs (which is a lot more expensive than the bag). But I've promised myself that I'd get that done when I get to goal. Ohhh, what to do, what to do???

    I KNOW! it was a VERY good fake, i only knew because i peeled the leather back on the tabs on the feet, it was pink instead of grey, the leather wasn't as soft as in the shop and the handles were a tiny bit thicker and not as supple. It's a nice bag, but when i pay £250 for something, i want it to be a vintage bargain or else i will save up for the real thing!!

    the seller refunded the money thank goodness, she said she didnt know it was counterfeit (the girls in the mulberry shop had a hard time telling it was a fake too!) and i am sending it back today. i wouldnt even have it in the house i was so upset!!

    luckily my boyfriend said he would put some money towards the real deal when i get to goal...will be a proper treat then!

    grrrr...everyone - beware of evilbay counterfeits!!

    Hey hon .
    Sorry to hear your bag was a fake.. I must be honest most of them are on there I think... unless an individual is selling one personally that may have been used. Its not something I would ever buy on ebay.. x

    very sexy kelsocool! what sort of car is it? my mum recently got a hyundai coupe sports car after years of having station wagons. she is a terror on the roads though, so i am hoping she decides driving isn't for her anymore and gives it to me!
