‘Back 2 School’ checklist
- a bag, Mary Poppins style!
If you watched ‘Mary Poppins’ when you were little, you’re childhood was pretty sweet. Remember how when she arrived to the Banks residence with this carpet bag, and she pulled out a huge plant, a mirror and even a lamp? the bag was pretty much bottomless! and she pretty much had her whole life in there, right down to her pair of lilac pumps.
When looking for a bag (generally, as well as for school/college), I always strive to find something practical, i.e to fit ‘my whole life’ in there and to look cute!. As much as I wish to buy the first pretty tote I see, my mother has taught me that when shopping for items I’m going to be using a lot, the quality of it trumps everything else! This means, investing in a well made, leather bag! Please don’t fret readers, I know some leather bags can be quite expensive, but high street favourites such as TOPSHOP and River Island offer very well made bags for reasonable prices, such as this tan tote bag from River Island for £70, or this leather and faux pony skin bag from TOPSHOP which doubles as a messenger bag for £60 (pretty awesome deal actually). However, I did spot this faux leather backpack from TOPSHOP for £36, the metal clips make this look really secure, and it gives off a simple edginess to it.
However, in the past I have purchased non-leather bags from Boohoo.com and ALDO, that have lasted me for just under 7 months, which is actually pretty good considering the way I treated some of them (I’m not the most careful person, but I do try, LOL)

SALE Season: River Island
One of the best things about December is the crazy sales after Christmas, and after braving it out in West End on Boxing Day last year, this year I think I’m going to take a break and shop the way God intended; in my pyjamas with a cup of tea, gossip girl season one playing in the background and River Island on my laptop screen :D
River Island are now undergoing a crazy, exclusive online sale with more than 50% off thousands of items. All the images above are from the sale, so why are you still here ? Log onto River Island ASAP and grab yourself a bargain ! ;)
Happy Holidays & Happy Shopping !! xx
