I despise purchasing handbags. No, I really do. Though my Chanel quilted flap bag holds the key to my sartorial heart, it is an impractical choice for everyday use (especially as a SLR-toting blogger).
Each year, I spend a small chunk of money on a bag that can hold a laptop, small camera, and ‘daily essentials’. At minimum. It is no easy feat; rather than heading to the high street and picking up the first thing I fall in love with, I meticulously search the interwebs for each year’s perfect combination of style, utility, and quality.
Or, I did until this year. This year I used Fashiola. The site is essentially a search engine for over 1,000 designers at around 100 online shops which means searching for super-specific items is a breeze. On top of that, you can select all the key features you are looking for (ie. blue tote bags between £80-£200) and sign up to receive e-mails when new items are uploaded or go on sale that fit your requirements!
My second new ‘detail’ takes the ultra-special form of these 24k Gold over-ear headphones from Monster. I have a few pairs of over-ear headphones but nothing holds a flame to these bad boys. As well as being equally gorgeous and comfortable (heavily-cushioned swiveling earcups!), the DJ-quality 24k Golds offer crystal clear sound quality and pure, heavy bass. I’m never going in-ear again.
