Searching for a holiday backpack

If you read my post from last week on My Honeymoon Essentials, you’ll know that I’m now on the hunt for the perfect bag to take away with me on our travels to Bali – it needs to fit all of my flying essentials (books, purse, camera, phone, notepad, magazines – the usuals!) and also be easy for me to pack away my beach essentials (towel, suncream, book, phone, purse, sunglasses etc.)

I want something that’s practical and stylish, so was over the moon when I got the opportunity to work with Moto Chic Gear to write a sponsored post about their gorgeous range of the Lauren style bags which are perfect for active women, looking for high-quality, well designed clothing and accessories. They’ve recently launched localized versions of their site in over 60 countries – so they’re getting pretty big! Customers around the world can now enjoy product information available in their local language, pricing, and sizing, a fully localized checkout process that accepts payment in 25 currencies and low international shipping rates!

Here are a few of the different options available on their site which I think could help me with my backpack dilemma!

The Lauren Bag: Black

I love the design of this, you could wear it as a handbag or a backpack, it’s secure (meaning I’m less likely to be mugged – always good to know!) and looks great – you also can’t go wrong with a black bag! I love a good quality leather bag and the different textures of this make this one different to your standard leather backpack.

If you like a bit of colour in your life, these sportier bags are great. In the same way as the previous Lauren bag, these can be worn as a backpack or a handbag, but are made with a more sport-appropriate polyester. I love there there are loads of colour options for the zips (all waterproof meaning your stuff won’t get drenched if you were to have it on your back during an unfortunate downpour of rain) and they don’t look like your standard sporty bag. I also love that the Lauren Sport bags have a little light inside of them so you can whip it out when you can’t find your keys to get in the door (which is a regular occurrence for me).

This again is another leather version of the Lauren bag in a different colour-way – I like the pop of white and think this makes it look a bit more summer appropriate, which is what I’m looking for. I also think this one could work and look great for mum’s on the school run that need to stock up on everything but the kitchen sink and don’t want something that isn’t changeable or stylish! Imagine all the sassy mum’s rocking these bags at the school gate?!

Let me know what you think of my picks in the comments below and make sure to check our their site for a wider range of clothing and accessories here. They’ve given me a personal discount code for 10% off, all you need to do is type GABRIELLEBANNER in at the checkout (please note that this code expires on the 31st of May 2018 – so get in there soon!)

Until Next Time
