Satchels, Why Do I Love You So?

25 Jul

I’m so in love with satchels.  So when my dear friend, O, showed me the Cambridge Satchel, I immediately fell in love with them and went crazy over the colors they offer!

Don’t you just love the colors?

Heart Attack!

After a few weeks of contemplating and stopping myself from buying, I finally gave up and gave in — and I’m glad I did 🙂

As if choosing which color to get wasn’t hard enough, deciding on the right size was also tough!  :O  It was pure dilemma!  But I’m happy with what I ended up getting, YELLOW in 11″.  It was pure LOOOOOVE!  So bright and sunny!

Did I mention that they smell absolutely great?  Even Lexi loves it (check out her blog about this here)!

Satchels, why do I love you so…. Let me count the ways…

1. They keep my things organized inside.  Since they come a bit ‘box-y” or “square-ish”, my things stay put the whole time even how much I move around.

2. They make me pack light.  I’m a pack rat.  I’ll pack whatever I might — take note, MIGHT! — need whenever I’m out.  With a satchel’s limited space, I just bring what I NEED for the day.  So whenever I use my satchel, my husband would always say, “Hey, you can actually pack light (insert sarcasm here!)” 😀

3. They go with almost anything!  It matches most of my clothes.  Whatever my mood is, I can just sling on my satchel! 🙂  Saves me the trouble of thinking of what bag to use!

and last but not the least…

4. They keep my hands free.  Whenever I go out, I prefer keeping my hands free as much as possible.  Who wouldn’t?  Keeping my hands free would mean, I’ll have an easier time going thru store racks for good finds, I can carry my shopping bags after hoarding (whenever my dear husband’s not around to shop with me),  I can hold my Honeh’s hand whenever I want (Cheesy but true 🙂 ) and of course, it allows me to carry my little one, Lexi, whenever she’s tired of walking.

So when did this love for satchels start?  When I got my hands on this one from Topshop — in pure fragrant soft leather!

Love. Love. Love...

I'm in love with the color!

The next satchel in my list?  Let’s wait and see 🙂

    Hi Ade! I am so glad to have found your little blog. It’s one way for me to keep in touch with you and keep myself up-to-date on your recent fabulous finds. HAHA Speaking of fabulous finds, I am green with envy. I have always wanted a Cambridge satchel. The faux leather ones they have here just doesn’t cut it. When I get my first paycheck (of course I’d have to find a job first), this will be the first thing I buy!

      Hi Baby Girl! I miss you! Super! You haven’t visited me! When do you plan to do so? I’ll ask Little Girl to visit at the same time! Let’s have lunch or coffee!\

      I’m glad you found my blog 🙂 This is my little happy space 🙂 — and yes, I’m loving my Cambridge! The leather’s a little stiff but I still love it! I want to get another one but I have to file for bankruptcy after if I do that! Haha!

      Miss you and thanks for leaving me a note. Mwah!
