New Bag ...

I have wanted a new bag for ages. I love starting a new course with a lovely new bag, but my boyfriend (who is far too sensible) said I should wait until I knew what type of bag  I would need. Well, I'm sorry Mike, but I just couldn't resist anymore!! Although it is not the most practical of bags, it is everything I want and I have not stopped using it since I bought it. 
 It was £30 from River Island. I could only see it in black but I wouldn't be surprised if they brought it out in other colours. I really wanted a sturdy bag to hold all the junk I will inevitably put in there and I think this looks like it should do the job. The straps feel very strong, and although it isn't leather it still looks like good quality. 

 One thing that I always look for in a bag is secure compartments. I live in a busy city, and you always have to be conscious of your bag, so I like knowing everything is more secure when it's all zipped up. Although this bag doesn't completely zip up, it has two compartments that do, as well as a little side pocket, so I usually keep all my valuables in there and then do the popper up for the main bit, which to be honest is still pretty secure. I also love a bag with compartments because it makes it easier for me to find things when I need them. I'm definitely guilty of throwing so much random stuff in my bag and then never being able to find the important stuff when I need it i.e. my keys or phone, if it doesn't have pockets.
