I know what your thinking......did I really need another new bag? No probably not but there was a sale on the Cath Kidston website and she lured with in with almost 50% off.
I'm a sucker for a new bag and for those who know me well reviewing another bag will not come as any big surprise. If I go out shopping I always have to include a bag shop of some kind. It's like a radar, I'm drawn towards them in a hypnotic state. I'm sure I've taken part in a secret hypnosis act in a former life and they have programmed me to hunt down and buy loads of handbags. That's my theory anyway, some may say it is just your obsession Sue form the Brew. Well ok we all need one, as long as it's not unhealthy and under control, that's fine.
So a pretty little backpack this time. I own a couple of Cath Kidston bags and they are all different. This one is really roomy, it fits an A4 folder in and you can get a 13-15" laptop in as well so plenty of room. The actual measurements are 35cm x 32cm x 12cm and it has two zipped pockets at the front, two pockets on either side with a magnetic fastening and a zipped pocket inside. There are also two more open pockets for maybe popping a phone in or similar items. It has grab handles at the top and obviously the straps for wearing it on your back. It is nice and comfortable to wear as it is made of 100% cotton.
I love it and it will get used quite a bit when I'm out and about. My only concern as I seem to have with every bag I buy is that it is soft fabric and not sure how well it would perform in the rain, but I guess the answer is not to stand out in the rain too much with it. Quite impossible at the moment in the UK, our summer has disappeared slightly. August is proving to be a wash out so far, typical when it's the school holidays. There will definitely be a heatwave in September when the kids go back to school.
Here is the link to this bag. It was in the sale reduced from £40.00 to £25.00 so a bargain to be had.
Thank you for reading and if you have bought a new bag please share your thoughts and experiences, I have to fill my obsession in some way. Think of it as therapy for me.
Take care for now but don't forget to join me tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday.
