I know this is a bit random, but I’ve just this year discovered Kipling bags. They’re so versatile, functional, and, well, cool! the only problem is that they’re not cheap but they seem very durable so hopefully built to last. All Kipling bags come with a little monkey attached on a keyring which is kind of cute.
So far I have four. A small red one with lots of pockets and a shoulder strap which is good if you don’t want to carry too much. A bigger black one with two carry handles which I am tending to use as my every day bag. I’ve just bought a large white one which will be ideal for our holiday with loads of pockets and loads of room for sun creams etc. finally I have a lilac laptop bag which is really cool! perhaps doesn’t provide quite enough protection for a laptop so you still have to be a bit careful with it but its colour and style makes up for that.
they all have names. I don’t know the name of the red one, the black one is the Esmae, The laptop bag is the Nyx and the big white one is the katan.
