A while ago, the very gorgeous Alex from Alex Loves had her blog birthday, and to celebrate held a series of competitions that truly did blow everyones mind! Now, never to miss the chance of winning some goodies I entered them all like a woman possessed, in the mere hope that I'd be lucky enough to win! Despite my normal bad run of luck that happens to follow me around constantly, Alex announced me and two others, winners of the Kipling bag competition. I was truly thrilled! This was the answer to all my problems. I finally could get my hands on a bag of my dreams!!
I've always loved Kipling bags, I was one of 'those' girls that would always stare into the shop window, trying not to lick the glass with want, for all the gorgeous leather goodness on show. Kipling, named after the well travelled author, are well thought of, well designed bags and well known. Trendy yet practical, upscale yet reasonably priced, durable yet daring, Kipling bags are the must-have accessories of over 35 million women in more than 60 countries. That’s some SERIOUS monkey business!
After being given the opportunity to pick a handbag of my choice by the equally lovely Lucy Cole from Kipling, I kept true to my roots and style, and decided on the Large Bagel Vintage Leather bag. It came in a choice of colours: Black Fox, Woodwinked, Purple Canvas, Grey Canvas and my choice: Brownie. I fell in love with my Brownie Bagel (That sounds yum) with its soft vintage leather, delicate shape and roomy compartment. It was ideal for me, as it fits A4 sheets, has a zipped pocket, room for my mobile phone and pens and has the most adorable coloured lining. This bag is made from super high quality Italian leather, with a relaxed slouchy style that is cool but super feminine - perfect for me.
Like a kid before Christmas, imagine my thrill having this come for me!
I have to say this bag is my new friend, a partner. It may very well be for life too...... A match made in heaven I'd say?
Until next time...
