I thought I’d do a little post on the replacements that I’ve accumulated recently, since getting my entire bag and its contents stolen two weeks ago. Note the word ‘accumulated’, as much it has been very generously gifted to me by friends and family. I’ve still got a long way to go before everything is replaced, but I’m getting there!
I have wanted a Longchamp Le Pliage bag for ages as I really like their classic design and had heard great things about how much they hold. I opted for the large, long handled version in Navy (Graphite was sadly out of stock) and since owning it it has become indispensable. It holds SO MUCH. Perfect for day when you’re running around town and need to carry your essentials but also extras like an SLR camera, etc. The big pull of this bag is that it folds up, which is oh so handy.
Despite its rather steep price tag, I would definitely have coughed up for a replacement Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon, as that colour and formula is just perfection. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have been happy about it, but I still would have done it. Luckily a friend of mine was a total and utter sweetheart and bought me another! Isn’t that the nicest?!
My mum, bless her, bought me this little slimline croc-effect/snakeskin type purse and I absolutely love it! I find most purses too bulky for me to use day to day, but this is the perfect size and design for me. I am actually really, really chuffed with this! Clearly my mother’s taste is improving, through my training..
Ha. Yes, this is meant to be my phone.
I decided to get this ASUS Fonepad as a temp product to tide me over until all the main phone releases are announced next month. I didn’t want to invest too much, as I would only be using it for a few weeks, but I also wanted to try something different from Samsung as I am quite interested in tech and like to see what’s out there. This ASUS Fonepad really appealed to me as coming from a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, I much prefer a nice, big screen. This is essentially a 7 inch tablet with phone capabilities, and in that sense it is pretty ridiculous to use as a phone, but for the budget price of £180, I am actually quite impressed with it! I really like the simple interface and surprisngly found myself being more productive on this relatively low-spec device than I was on my Samsung Note 2. The only thing is it is very large and clunky. I’m going to cover this properly in an in-depth review soon, as I think it would be quite an interesting read, but yes, actually an impressive lil’ device!
Still got a long way to go before it’s all replaced (eugh, the passport!), but I’m getting there!!!!
