9. She can drive without a license!
Now, that’s a perk of the job if there ever was one. She is the only person in the U.K. who can drive without a license or a number plate. She learned how to drive during World War II and she served as 2nd Lieutenant Elizabeth Windsor for her job at the time which was operating a First Aid truck for the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service. She’s also trained to change a flat tire or a spark plug, bet Prince William can’t do that!

8. She can travel without a passport
Other members of the Royal Family need passports but Her Majesty doesn’t need one because all passports in the UK are issued in her name.

7. She actually gets to celebrate two birthdays
One is her real birthday in April, the second is the official birthday which is celebrated in Commonwealth countries is usually a fixed day in June. Where can we sign up for two birthdays?

6. She has her own cash machine
Coutts bank installed a private cash machine in the basement of Buckingham Palace especially for their beloved monarch.

5. She owns more animals than you can imagine.
In addition to her own two corgis and two ‘dorgis’ (a dachshund corgi mix) she legally owns all the swans in unmarked open waters and all the whales, dolphins and sturgeons within three miles of UK shores. How’s that for a pet collection?

4. She’s not technically required to pay taxes
But we love her because she voluntarily began to pay her fair share in 1992.

3. She’s immune to prosecution
It’s lucky she pays her taxes without being asked because even if she was required to, she can’t really be arrested. She and her family are also exempt from Freedom of Information requests.

Carol Ann Duffy
2. She has a poet of her own
The honorary position is given to a poet whose work is believed to be of national importance. Carol Ann Duffy currently occupies the position.

Queen-Elizabeth-II
1. She is the head of a religion
The royal title goes hand in hand with leadership of the Church of England. If she even decides to convert to another religion, she can be stripped of her title. We’re sure she wasn’t too tempted by Scientology anyway.

Louis Vuitton Lockme II BB

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

While I wouldn’t exactly call the design revolutionary, the Lockme II BB is a couple of things. For one, it’s quite different from bags Louis Vuitton usually puts out, not exactly runway-ready nor is it something that’s covered in monogram. Not that it’s a bad thing either, I see it as a good in-between, and an option well-suited for those not into looking too trendy or too, dare I say, logo-ed.

Measuring some 22 cm across (it is the smallest in its family of bags, and which also explains the added letters BB on the end), it’s made of soft calf leather and comes with duo slings, one, a long leather one that can be length-adjusted and/or removed, the other, a metallic chain sling that you can use like a top handle (or leave it as a form of decoration).

On the inside, you’ll find compartments galore, from smartphone pockets to those you can slip cash or receipts into, within a textile tone-on-tone interior (in other words, it will be the same colour both inside and out). Priced at SGD3100 (it is full leather, after all), you’ll find it in Rubis (shown above), Rose Ballerine (a really soft pink) orNoir.

And if you like what you’re seeing but wish for it to be bigger, there’s also a largerLockme II which comes in at about 28 cm across, both of which are now available at Louis Vuitton boutiques in Singapore for your kind perusal.

When chapter 1 is extremely successful, there will also be chapter 2, just like a popular movie. That’s the natural thing to do. So when Louis Vuitton introduces the Lockme Bag, it needed to release the Lockme 2 Bag.

Tada!

READ: Louis Vuitton Lockme Bag

What can we tell you about the Lockme 2 Bag? Well… first it’s more compact and tighter in design. It’s…how to put it? Much more modernized.

Obviously the Lockme 2 Bag is the upgrade version of its first edition. The handles, logo, strap, front flap, luggage tag, they are all different.

I am not sure which one you like more, perhaps you can tell me?

But anyways, a fresh new reading for the Spring season. Made with an over-scale LV Twist closure in shiny Palladium brass that adds an edgy touch. It comes with an adjustable shoulder strap that can be removed. A classic luggage tag with Louis Vuitton signature on it.

Crafted from soft calf leather and smooth calf leather trim, the brand-new version is for the modern woman. Measuring 11 x 7.9 x 4.3 inches, priced at $2910 USD, €1980 euro or $1640 GBP.
