Liebeskind Berlin Esther Satchel…

Liebeskind Berlin is a leather goods brand out of Germany that I wish I’d heard about sooner! Going through their website (, I saw many beautiful products that I would love to own from the brand. Their items are well made, sturdy, made of quality leather, and can seemingly stand the test of time.

Alrighty! So, that brings us to the Liebeskind Berlin Esther Satchel and the Liebeskind Berlin Leather Coin Zip Pouch. I ordered these from Nordstrom Rack as some of my birthday gifts to myself, and while I was extremely excited while waiting for them in the mail, that excitement turned into a bit of disappointment once they got here and I opened the package.

For starters, this is what I bought:


The Esther satchel that I ordered…


The Leather Coin Zip Pouch

This is what I received:


Also an Esther Satchel, but…

Notice something different? The purse that I ordered and the purse that I received are not the same purse. Both fall under the Esther Satchel, as the bags have the same general design, but different embellishments. However, the one that I ordered had two zippers across the front, while this one has a different look altogether. Thankfully the coin pouch came as it was supposed to. Now, I kept the handbag that was sent, as it is lovely as well (and I love it now), but I’m still in my feelings about the situation. So instead of rehashing the subject by typing out the whole story again, I will post a YouTube video that I made about the subject below.

What are your thoughts? Have you ever ordered from Nordstrom Rack and it surprisingly ended up being fulfilled by Hautelook as well? If so, what was your experience with that? Did you receive the items that you actually ordered, or were they substituted with no explanation?

Delivery from Hong Kong: Qeautybox!

I’d wanted to check out Qeautybox since it began, due to it being the brainchild of Queenie Chan, who you may know from YouTube as BeautyQQ. I’ve followed her channel for around seven years, and she’s always in a constant state of creativity, and has no problems with sharing what she does, and how she does it. Absolutely love her, love her energy, and also how nice of a person she is! She’s done plenty outside of YouTube, among which would be writing books, having a perfume line, and now…Qeautybox! It’s a box subscription service of sorts, but without the commitment. When new boxes are put together, you go to the website, order whichever box you’d like, and that’s it. You’re not locked down to a monthly subscription, or one where you have to remember to skip the month. Which is good, because some of us completely forget that we have the option to do that at times. *raises hand*

The Qeautybox that I ordered was one of the Travel boxes. The choices were the Airbus Box and the Boeing Box. I chose the Boeing. Included inside:


This clutch, y’all…this clutch. *heart eyes* It is a functional clutch purse, with a strap, and an extra pocket on the inside. Now, I cannot cram everything that I normally carry in my purse in this, because it would look quite bulky if I did, and I wouldn’t be able to zip it up. But you can still carry quite a bit in here! I love that it was designed to look like a credit card. Love!


This “passport” is super cute as well! There are even stickers (“stamps”) inside to mark all of your Qeautyland travels. 😉 The luggage tag was a nice addition, especially as I was in need of a new one. 😀 The colors! *sparkles*


Above is the Best Sample Kit from CNP Laboratory, and the Jojo Azulene Mask.


The CNP Laboratory sample kit included one use of the Anti-Pore Blackhead Clear Kit, and I don’t get blackheads, but my pores clog very easily. I tried this kit (used the masks and the tools above), and the pores on my nose were cleared right out! It gives almost the same effect as the nose strips do, but far less painful, and is far more gentle on the skin. This is a product that I would like to use again.

The kit also included three samples each of the Invisible Peeling Booster (removes dead skin cells, revives and brightens skin – I have not tried this one yet), the Propolis Energy Ampule (kept my skin moisturized overnight), and the Mugener Ampule (did not see much of a difference, but it’s for irritated skin, and my skin wasn’t irritated, so…).


The JOJO mask was nice. There is a moisture booster essence (upper right corner of the package) that you put on first, and then you apply the sheet mask. The mask was moisturizing, but I did not see much of a difference in my skin with this one. It was relaxing, though, and it will always get points for that. I love sheet masks. I really do. I need to start a collection. *thinking and plotting*


The next three products were the Betadine Feminine Wash (self-explanatory – I haven’t used this product), Nature’s Unicellular Toning Water (used after cleansing to help hydrate skin – I’m ready to try this, but am waiting to, as I am almost finished with a micellar water that I’ve been using), and iS Clinical Cleansing Complex (deep cleanser – I really like this one. My face felt super clean after using it!).


NudeStix Lip/Cheek Pencil in Ripe. It doesn’t work for me as a lip color, but I can use it on my cheeks as a blush, heeeeeey! I love the container that it comes in, and it also comes with a sharpener. The company was thinking about us when they put that in there. Had to be. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t need an extra sharpener? 😀


This is a Korean Ginseng Berry Tea (link here), which is supposed to be good for immune system health, fatigue, and memory. All I know is that it tasted good. 😀


This FLOXIA Regenerating and Redness Control Cream was really nice. I don’t have much of an issue with redness, but the cream was very moisturizing. I got about four uses out of the sample, and used it at night. My skin was still moisturized and bright when I woke up, so this one gets the seal of approval based on that alone!


This is the Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel, and is a soap-free formula for face and body. Avène is one of my favorite brands, and I wish that it were easier for me to get my hands on it locally, or to get some of the company’s products that are available in other countries, but not in the United States. One of my favorite cleansing waters from the brand comes to mind, and I cannot get it here in the States, but I digress. *sighs* I have not tried this Cleansing Gel yet, as I’m trying to get through some other cleansing products at the moment. But trust and believe that I’m excited to try it! Again, I love the brand, as their products have always worked well with my skin.


This one made me smile, because I’d just returned from a trip where THANN products were made available in my room (thank you, Marriott!). I was telling myself that I should have grabbed a few more of the products when housekeeping came by and asked me if I needed anything…and then asked me if I wanted more products! Why did I say no?!? *laughs* But I came home and got this Qeautybox in the mail, having already forgotten what was inside. So when I pulled this out of the package, all I could do was giggle! This is the Rice Extract Body Milk from THANN. It doesn’t say which collection it’s a part of, but I’m going to assume it’s part of the Aromatic Wood collection (there’s also Oriental Essence and Jasmine Blossom), because it smells just like the products at the hotel, and they were the Aromatic Wood collection. It’s kind of a woodsy citrus scent, if that makes any sense. Orange and tangerine oils, and all of that yumminess.



There was also a card included in the Qeautybox for use with Y5Buddy Pocket WiFi Egg rentals. It’s only good for a specific set of countries, and is good for two free days of the rental service. I’ve never tried to use a service like this one, but it has always interested me. I might have to try it the next time I’m overseas, if it’s available wherever it is that I land. This particular card is only good until November 1st of this year, and I have no set travel plans for the rest of this year, so unfortunately I won’t be using this one. But it’s a great idea!


So that was it for my Qeautybox! As far as the price goes, each box is different. The Boeing Box ships from Hong Kong and costs HK $198.00, which for me came out to be around $37 USD (with shipping). It’s pretty affordable, and you get to try out some things that may not be readily available in your country. Which is good, because…being exposed to new things! But maybe not so good if you really love the product! Which is why it’s nice to be able to order from overseas. 🙂 If you’ve ever tried out Qeautybox, let me know how you liked it in the comment section below! 🙂
