|AD-bag was gifted to be featured in post|
Yes it's been a while, and for that I apologise. Lots has been going on and I for one am happy to now be in February. From the horrid weather we had in Jan which was extra rubbish whenever I went to shoot. I'm finally getting settled into freelance life (and lovin it) and renovations with the house have started up again, so busy busy busy.
Anyway, expect posts on a more regular basis around these parts, so please stay and be my blog friend!
Backpacks remind me of school. The "geeky" kids and skaters used to use them the most from what I remember. The other little groups would either not use a bag, use a cross body bag or drawstring one (this totally gives away my age but I'm cool with that). I'm pretty sure I used an array of bags throughout my time, as a new school year wasn't the same without a new school bag.
Now at 30 I'm still starting a new year with a new backpack. I started this year with a new Fjällräven Laptop bag in green (GIFTED), but instead of holding my school books and pencil case, my backpack now holds groceries, my laptop when I hunt out a nice coffee shop, water bottle, my camera and more! Making adulting and errand running a lot easier.
In all honestly, I've never had a backpack that's as nice as this (and I'm being totally honest with you). The material is so hardwearing, and comes in so many colours that everyone could find one perfect for them. Since this bag arrived at my door, I recon I've used it 90% of the time because it's just great. I've taken it everywhere. It's come with me to supermarkets, London, Dunelm to buy new pillows (pictured below), and have to fit with the other half as to who gets to wear it.
Small details really make this bag special. Well, to me I really appreciate the small things. At the sides of the bag are small slots which fit an umbrella in perfectly, freeing up room in your bag. Game changer for sure! I also really like the small pop stud fastening that holds the carry straps together. Never have I seen this type of thing on a backpack but I love it. It's an extra safety precaution but also keeps the bag looking a bit neater.
Is that a thing you ask? Yes, yes it is!
So, yes you've guessed it, I'm a huge fan of backpacks. If I had to choose a style of bag that I had to use for the rest of my life, a backpack would be it, and this Fjällräven would be the one. For the space and amount it can hold, the protection it gives to my laptop and the just overall coolness. Plus, the colour ranges they have is something I very much take my hat off to. So extensive!
Are you a backpack lover or hater? What colour Fjällräven would you choose? I've got my eye on the Kanken Clutch in collaboration with Acne. It's just GORGEOUS.
Much love friends
