Qwstion: What do you carry your laptop in?
Whether you carry your laptop in a bag but want protection for it, or whether you like the easy grab-and-carry approach of just a sleeve, Qwstion’s laptop sleeve
is definitely one to consider. With a simple yet stylish design, this sleeve wouldn’t be out of place in either the office or at home. There are two sizes to choose from, suitable for either a 13-inch or 15-inch laptop. The shell is cotton canvas, the lining is cotton, and there’s a padded main compartment, document pocket, and a useful strap to make carrying easier.
Time to bag yourself some carry?
So you’re in the market for a bag but you have no idea where to start looking. You do an online search and are presented with hundreds of links inviting you to part with your hard-earned cash on this or that bag that looks amazing. So you click on one. Your bank balance decreases, your anticipation rises, and you wait. The bag arrives. Good times! It looks nothing like the picture on the site. It falls apart after two months. The dog is given the most expensive chew toy it will ever own in its life. You’re sad. The world looks a little less shiny now. Alternately, you could avoid a whole lot of crushed expectations, hours of research not knowing whether you’re looking at a winner or a dud, and check out this handy list of good bag companies. Maybe your ideal bag is in here, or maybe it’s simply a good starting place to get ideas of what you’re after. Either way, you can relax knowing that this list contains suggestions from people who know their carry.
Is superior craftsmanship, sleek style and intelligent design all combined in an eco-friendly package too much to ask for? Not if Jardins Florian
and The Good Flock
collaborate together. The result of their collaboration is a tote bag
that is both aesthetically pleasing and practical, not to mention biodegradable. As The Good Flock states, “The products we make can be buried in your backyard”. Not that you’d want to…just saying…
Invisible limbs and the black hole of doom
For many women, their life revolves around the contents of their handbags. Keys, phone, money, notebook, pens, music devices, sunglasses, tissues, make-up, medication – these contents are all in what is effectively an extension of the body. The handbag goes where you go, and without it you feel that sensation of an invisible limb. However, many handbags are like black holes; things go in and they disappear. Who knows what could be lurking in the shadowy depths as you rummage around unsuccessfully (there’s a reason guys should steer clear of women’s handbags). Fancy reclaiming those lost contents and making life a whole lot simpler by restoring some handbag order? This guide
can help you do just that. Check out the image link as well for extra info.
