Yes a new change for 2018. I am changing Whatever Wednesday which was the day for random posts about random subjects to What to Buy Wednesday where I am aiming to review various products around the shops and online and give them a teapot rating out of five.
So for my first 'What to Buy' this year I am reviewing a new handbag. Oh surprise surprise I hear you say, especially those that know me very well. Not another new bag!! This one I'm not actually supposed to have yet as it is an early birthday present. My birthday is only next month and I think my mum thought it may border on child abuse or some sort of torture to forbid me from using a new handbag.
It is gorgeous, very soft leathery looking bag and yes it is one of those 'bags within a bag' which I think is the greatest idea ever. Two bags, yes two!! Oh I'm in heaven. For those who don't know me at all I am a total bagaholic. I love bags, all types too. I can actually get excited about the shopping bags at the checkout in the local supermarket. Sad I know.
This newest member of my collection came from The Little Shed which is very lethally situated around the corner from where I live. Lethal because they just stock gorgeous handbags, gifts, they have cake, tea and coffee and what's more lovely friendly staff. It is literally so hard to pass by without going in, I'm addicted.
The smaller bag fits inside the bigger bag and can be secured with press studs but get this, there is also a nice long strap provide too which you can attach to the larger bag or to the smaller bag so the possibilities are endless. Both bags are very roomy and the smaller one has a main compartment with two inside pockets and a zipped pocket on the outside. Believe me I carry all sorts of stuff around and there is so much room here and you can keep everything nice and tidy using the small bag or leave that at home and just chuck everything into the big bag, it's totally up to you and how you are feeling at the time.
Just love a bag I can change my mind with and stay dainty and small or go large and shopper type. This one pictured is a dark grey colour but there are other colours available - an olive green and a light pink were in stock today. The price? £26.99 so if you want to know more or are interested in purchasing one you can find details about The Little Shed in Allestree here at: www.thelittleshedallestree.com
So what teapot rating do I give this item.....well its a........
5 stars out of 5!! yes a very happy bag lady......well erm, customer sounds better.
Thank you for reading my review today. Please join me tomorrow for a Verse for Thursday as usual but for now.......
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
