IT'S HERE!!! My LV "Mon Monogram" Speedy!

Hi Gorgeous Ones!
Hope you all had an AMAZING weekend & that it was spent with all of those that hold your heart.
Mine was filled with yummy food, people I love, sun/swimming, fun, & much needed R&R! All of these things to me = Heaven! 

Today has been spent getting caught up, running errands, & getting back into work mode. As I'm typing away on my doorbell rings...and here's what was waiting for me! My LV "Mon Monogram" (aka personalized. He He) Speedy! 


I am in no all... trying to brag. I just hope you guys reading this are like me in the sense that you all things girly & fashion related, and love as much as I do...seeing what people buy, taking a peek in their closets, etc. I LOVE watching people's "Haul" videos on YouTube, and watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills...just to see how they live & what's in their closets! Ha Ha. Besides...I think of all of you as my girlfriends (or guy friends), & if any one of you got something fun...I'd wanna see! So...with that said...this is more of a "show & tell", and if you were as curious as I was on what these bags look like in person...keep reading. 

Here's a little bit on how the process works...

1. You can pick out 4 different varieties of "stripes"
2. 2 color choices
3. Up to 3 initials
4. With or Without dots in between letters (VOW or V.O.W)
5. 3 or 4 choices of bags/luggage
6. They tell you it takes up to 8 weeks to "make", but I ordered mine on the 15th...and it's already here! 

I chose the SPEEDY 35 (The medium sized one. Not the smallest...but not the biggest) & below you will see my initials & color choice. My birth name is Veronika Elaine Ohanian, but after I got Married I changed my name to Veronika Ohanian-Welt. new initials are VOW & I love love love that they spell, well..."vow". Ha Ha. 

Here are some sample options, as well as a little preview of what the process looks like on the Louis Vuitton website. If you wanna browse here, click on "SHOP OUR COLLECTIONS", click the "WOMEN" Tab, & they are under the "MON MONOGRAM" option.  

The Unveiling...

Even Dolce wants to see! 


The Back. 

Thank you, Mommy for my new toy! 

I am so excited & couldn't love it more! Thank you for letting me share with you! 
Makes it that much more fun! 
Do any of you have one?
What Colors/Initials/Abbreviations did you choose?
If you don't have one...yet...what would you choose? 
And if you have one...I would LOVE to see it! Your turn to share!

Oh & I plan on posting my "Hollywood Glamour" Giveaway tomorrow, so be sure to stop back by! 
You will LOVE it...promise!

Have a beautiful night, Sweet Ones! 
I love & appreciate you all! 

Love, Hugs, & LV Dreams,

To Remember.



All I saw was smoke and fire; I didn't feel a thing,
but suddenly I was rising higher.
And I felt like I'd just made the biggest mistake
when I though about my unborn child;

when I thought about my wife.
And the answer rang out clear
from somewhere up above:
No greater gift has man, but to lay down his life for love.

And I wonder, would I give my life?
Could I make that sacrifice?
If it came down to it, could I take the bullet, I would.
Yes I would for you.

Maybe you don't understand
I don't understand it all myself.
But there's a brother on my left and another on my right.
And in his pocket just like mine, he's got a photograph.
And they're waiting for him back home.

And it's weighing on my mind.
I'm not trying to be a hero;
I don't wanna die.
But right now in this moment, you don't think twice.

I wonder, would I give my life?
Could I make that sacrifice?
If it came down to it, could I take the bullet, I would.
Yes I would.

You don't think about right; you don't think about wrong.
You just do what you gotta do to defend your own.
And I'd do the same for you -
Yes I would.

I would give my life.
I would make that sacrifice.
'Cause if it came down to it, could I take the bullet, I would.
Yes I would do it for you.
I'd do it for you


As you celebrate tomorrow...please take some time to remember all of those who are the reason behind our day off...& our freedom. For all of our Soldiers-past, present & future...I love you all...and I am eternally grateful. "Thank You" will never be enough. For all the "Soldiers" at home...I have NO IDEA how you do it & my heart & prayers...go out to you as well. "If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace." -Hamilton Fish ♥ 
God Bless The USA!  

One Proud & Grateful American,

Love Your Body

Hey Gorgeous Ones!
As I sit here with another one of my fabulous headaches...I thought I'd catch up on my You Tube watching, and I came across this video & just had to share. This beautiful girl below is Trisha. Someone I've been watching/following for a while now, and I wrote this post about her, when I first discovered her. She's inspired me since the moment I found her & I think we could all learn a thing or two from her. Most importantly...her confidence & her ability to be the epitome of "herself" a world that's constantly trying to change you. I the tenth degree...anyone who lives their life for them alone (without hurting anyone of course), and who...when looking in the so proud of the person staring back at them. Props is an understatement...I give them a standing ovation! With Summer here, and all of us trying to look our absolute best & be "bikini perfect"...just make sure that the measure of judged by you alone. Never compare yourself to anyone else. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be your absolute best. I think we all should live up to our fullest every aspect of our lives, so long as you are trying to be the best version of YOU. Not what society or the world thinks you should be. If your body interferes with your life & activities, meaning...if your weight limits you from living your best life...then might be time to make a change, but if not, and you're 100% happy in your skin...then hey...STANDING OVATION & eat an extra slice of pizza for me! Ha Ha. You, and only you...should be the judge of that. The world is so full of "ugly"...and not at all what I mean is the size of your jeans! "Pretty Is As Pretty Does" & skinny does not always equal...pretty. You are not a size. You are not a weight. You are not an age. You are not a trophy. You are not a doll. You are not stupid. You are not an image. You are not an advertisement demographic. YOU ARE A WOMAN...and YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

What I wrote to her...

"YOU ARE STUNNING & deserve a standing ovation for this one, T! This "mean" epidemic NEEDS to stop & I couldn't be more proud of you for bearing not only your body...but your soul. My Mama always said, "Pretty is as pretty does", and you my dear...are beautiful. If you can't say anything to improve the silence...please, please...don't say a word. We are all in this world together, fighting our own battles, and we all need to stick together & help each other through it all. BE YOU & BE PROUD! XO"

Have a beautiful night, Gorgeous Ones!
As you look in the mirror at the beautiful reflection staring back at you.
She's as beautiful as it gets!
