Desperately Seeking ______________ on Sale...

What are you desperately seeking on sale?

Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy. Be forewarned, I'm an adventurous eater with a HUGE sweet tooth. If you're in NYC, I hope you try some of these spots. If you do, LMK what you think. Bon appetit!

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.


Treesje: Port Travel Tote

There is no doubt that Longchamp's ubiquitous Le Pliage Large Tote is great for traveling but sometimes, you want something a little different.  I find that I've been using my two leather travel totes with increasing frequency because, well, it's no fun when every girl is walking around with your bag.  KWIM?  I'm sure you do!  One of those leather travel totes is my Treesje Port Travel Tote in gunmetal:  

Yes, the mortale version (skull motif rather than anchor motif) is more popular but I'm just not a skull motif kinda girl.  Plus, the anchor motif will be perfect for my next cruise!  The bag is made from a soft matte grey leather with embossed silver anchors.  It's slowly becoming more smooshy.  The hardware is a beautiful gunmetal.  This is not a huge bag but it's large enough for a weekend trip (or for use as a gym bag).  It's 17.5" wide and 14" tall.  I like to use this bag as my carry-on when I's perfect for my 15" MBP.  (I use a neoprene sleeve for added protection.) The handle drop is a very comfortable 8" but if I end up stuffing this bag to the max, I like to use the shoulder strap with a 10" drop.  When you use the shoulder strap, it feels like it takes pounds off the bag!   Here's a better look at this bag:

Note:  At approximately 2.5 lbs, this isn't the lightest bag but it isn't the heaviest either!
