My new baby!


 I have always been the type of person to go away on holiday and buy small tiny souvenirs that I will forget about a week after returning home. Going away to Portugal this year I knew that I wanted to not waste my money and to only buy things that I really loved. Every time we walked to the nearest town that had a Zara and H&M I wanted to go in and browse. I was told by most of my family members that I could only shop somewhere that we didn't have at home, fair point I guess! There was this little shop called Parfois that was all over Portugal. On the first night I spotted this bag and fell in love with it in Grey. Just before we left to come home I went in again just as the ladies were about to close for the night and were putting out new stock! This is their new colour for the next season and I am so glad that I waited before purchasing it! There isn't a Parfois in the UK but I believe you can buy it online. The only issue with their online store is that the Euro/GBP is the same! So it is more expensive to buy online than it would be to buy it in Europe!





The bag is perfect for this season. It has a Snake print leather design which makes it feel and look more expensive than it actually is! I decided to go with the Burgundy colour as I wanted to use it throughout the winter, and I wanted a colour other than Black! 






The bag comes with so many different pockets that it made it perfect for travelling! I know that this bag will also be perfect to use as a handbag on days that I am out for trips at uni. It has two larger pockets with zips on either side of the bag. There is then 3 sections inside. A central zipped section and then two open ones either side of that. For extra security the bag has a protective magnet close which closes off the sections and also keeps the bag together. There is a extra purse on the outside of the bag which I think is supposed to be used to keep loose coins in. I have been using it for storing chewing gum! This can go in or out of the bag or could be removed altogether! The bag also comes with a longer strap which turns the handbag into a cross body bag. 






Here are a couple of images that you might have seen on my blog in the past couple of weeks. I thought I would include them here as well so you can get an idea of the size! 





I hope you enjoyed this post! Sorry it has taken me a little bit of time between uploading. I didn't realise that as soon as I would get home from holiday I was going straight to work with my dad! haha! 

Let me know what type of posts you would like to see in the future! I am so excited to be buying a new gadget that will help with the quality of this blog!

Lots of love,

  4. That bag is so beautiful! I think it suits you and the season very well. xx I prefer a smaller bag for now, but I think a bigger one is always nice to have. ;)
