Edit: Contest closed! The winner is Samantha Griffith-Niles. Congratulations! :)

First off, I am not a bag connoisseur. When I Find a purse that I like I use it very single day, so I have to really love it. I recently had the privilege and opportunity to work with TSC to review the Bali Double Entry Hobo by Aimee Kestenberg.

This purse is gorgeous. It comes in black, chestnut, denim, lipstick red, and metallic, and today I am going to show you the black and chestnut versions. When I first opened the box I could smell the leather immediately (although they were wrapped up nicely), and when I opened them both I was so pleased by what I saw. The black is a deep shade, while the chestnut is a bold brown that I would equate to a rich cognac colour. Both have a buttery, pebbled leather, patterned lining, and metal hardware.

The fun part of these bags are that they have a double entry. What does that mean? That means that not only does it look cool, the flap that folds over and closes also opens up and is like a lined, deep pocket that goes all the way down the back of the purse. This is a really neat addition to a purse, and allows it to carry so much more than its size would lead you to believe. The Mary Poppins bottomless bag comes to mind.

Aside from the double entry, there are also several zipped pockets on the sides, across the back, and inside that will keep everything neat and organized. It also comes with a dust bag. I am very much into organization and utility because I tend to carry my life (and my children’s lives) in my bag, and this checks the boxes.

The general shape of the purse is a classic hobo style with a short (but adjustable), thick leather strap that allows for both shoulder wear or to be carried on the arm or by hand with ease. This is such a classic style that you will can wear it anywhere from a night out, to running errands in your casual clothes without batting an eyelash.

SHOP THE POST


I am going to have a holiday give away for my Canadian readers this weekend. I don’t know yet if it will be tomorrow or Sunday so keep an eye on your inbox if you subscribe to my blog post emails because it will be in there.

Do you know what I hate? When you are shopping on Amazon and are thinking of buying from a 3rd party seller but it doesn’t list where they ship from. How am I supposed to know if I want standard or expedited shipping if I don’t even know where it is coming from. Does this but anyone else?

I put together a gift guide for some cute, last-minute under $20 gift ideas from Amazon (because of variety, and the ability to order really late and have it still arrive on time). I hope you enjoy my selections :)

Weekly Reads (and maybe videos):

  • This is truly one of the best articles I have read on women and self-care. Like it says, “True self-care is not salt baths and chocolate cake, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.”
  • Did you see who Time’s Person of the Year is? This movement is making me proud and giving me hope.
  • Have you been following this guys Twitter feed? I have it open in a tab just so I make sure not to miss something. There is so much information that it’s easy to get lost but it’s been worth the read.
  • You have only got until Monday to try the new Starbucks holiday Frappe. After the Unicorn frappe debacle I will remain skeptical but reviews sound promising.
  • Diphtheria is back. Why is it back, and what is it. And to go along with that article this post gives you a real perspective of what an outbreak is like. Disclaimer: it’s a sad read.

Weekly Finds:

Make sure to check back this weekend if you are a Canadian reader to enter the giveaway!
