How’s it holding on so far? Here are my thoughts on the tote and TN. Read on!
Tote Bag: Large in BlackI guess I miscalculated the size of this bag. I was actually in the market for a leather bag that I could use to work that can withstand all sorts of business-style uniforms. One facet that I’ve overlooked is that it has no zipper and it’s pretty much a carryall. So, I’ll keep on searching again in the meantime.
What’s to love:
- Vegan leather
- Large size can carry so much stuff
- Very lightweight on its own
Thoughts so far:
I’ve already used it as an extra tote for work so that I can bring my workout clothes when I do the dance dance portion in the afternoon. Sweating out is good, right? So far, it does a good job of carrying my workout shoes, extra shirt, workout pants, small towel and other stuff that I may toss in there.
Why do I love it?
It’s more stylish to carry a black vegan leather tote than a bright gym bag on wash days. Black matches everything.
Traveler’s Notebook with Accessories in Rose GoldHere’s something to fall in love with, I kid you not.
Maybe because rose gold is a weakness that’s why I gave in. But nothing could have prepared me for the beauty that’s the TN.
What’s to love:
- Vegan leather in rose gold!
- Side pocket for stickers, travel washi stock and other ephemera
- Beautifully stitched
- Comes in safe pouch
- Comes with detachable pen holder
- Inserts are both in Plain White Paper and Brown Kraft Paper, (be still my vintage-loving heart)
Thoughts and Why I Love It:
If only it arrived earlier, I think this might be the TN that I’ll be bringing along with me for my Mountain Province escape. But I have a pretty good feeling that this TN will have its own time to shine. Just looking at that neat stitching has just assured me that it’s worth the treat, and that I’m a proud owner of a uniquely Filipino, handmade TN.
