The Everyday Basic Bag

November 2, 2017 in Lifestyle - 1 Comment - 2 min read

I don’t know about you, but I I really don’t like spending a fortune on everyday items, like bags, some accessories etc. And by everyday I mean items worn for work or the gym. make no mistake, I care about my appearance but I also value saving money where I can be saved and grabbing a bargain when I can.

So, I needed an everyday bag for work. something I could carry my lunch in, occasion work stuff and other items necessary for your everyday office life, pens, sticky notes and of course hand lotion. Never underestimate how handy having lotion is in your bag, your hands need a little touch up throughout the day, especially if your typing like crazy.

Off to Primark I went searching for something that was cute, fairly grown up looking, and able to stand the test of your everyday use. And I cam upon this cute little £12 bag. Cheap is exactly what I wanted but stylish and fairly simply too. I wanted to grab something that would also be perfect for the autumn to winter transition and I think this army green style is the way to go.

So over to you, what do you think? Do you agree with me about the basic, margin everyday bag? I’m all for splashing out on the more expensive chic items too but my theory with this bag is that it’s not going to be in a place where it will be appreciated but I still need look fairly smart – Does that make sense?

Fall has arrived in Cambridge

    I totally get what you mean! This bag is way cute! I have a hard time finding a cute bag to store everything in. But for me, if I want a bag it’s uusally something I splurge on beacuse I don’t want it breaking on my commute (which has happened to me before)

    • 💫 Well, it’s my second day of working from home for the foreseeable future. I’ve worked from home quite a bit anyway with my job but doing it long term is going to be quite a shift. 🎉However, it is something we can & must do if able. So how am I setting myself up? 🥰I’m trying to keep as much of a schedule going as possible when it comes to work. I’m also working on creating a barrier between my home environment & work environment, it’s important to not let it all merge into one. 🙏🏻 I’ll be sharing everything through my stories and blog soon. Remember, we are all in this together! My DM’s are always open if anyone needs a chat. 👌🏼💖
    • ✨ A little throwback snap from one of my new favourite hotspots in Cambridge, wishing this had been my breakfast this morning. 🍳 I obviously won’t be cooking anything as fabulous while I’m working from home, but one can dream right?! 💖💫
    • 💫 LIVING LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE. ✨ We’ve not really ventured out the house much this weekend except for the one Tesco shop. (Not a fun experience) Although the UK isn’t on a lockdown yet, we are prepping for it and limiting where we go. Ive really been enjoying the #staythefuckhome & defo recommend you give it a scroll. Stay safe, stay well & stay home (if you can) 🥰♥️
    • ✨ With all the noise from the news & a heavy work load, I’ve been finding it difficult to get a proper good sleep 💤 this week. I’m sure some of you are just the same. It’s a crazy, unknown time and difficult to just switch off from that anxious feeling. Luckily I’ve found a little  bedtime spray, a good book 📚 and night time moisturiser can help calm me down a little. While it obviously doesn’t magically solve everything, it does help me. 💫 So, I encourage you all to do the little things that make you feel just that little bit better during this time.♥️
    • Happy Sunday! 💫 oh my goodness, it’s been a hella of a busy time of late. Over the last few weeks, works been full on & I somehow managed to squeeze in a driving test along the way (which I passed 🎉) AND as a result, I’ve had a very exciting weekend shopping for my first car, feeling very happy & lucky. 😌Today I think I’m just gonna nest at home and enjoy the art of doing nothing ✨
    • 💫 Going into today with this as my mantra.👌🏼 Its no secret that I’m currently finding myself swamped at work! 😩So wishing you a peaceful & smooth working week ✨💖
