With Halloween upon us, what’s better than a cross-body bag on a night out with friends? My original plan consisted of doing just that back in New York, where I planned on going to a concert with a few of my girls, then grabbing dinner and drinks afterward. But Hurricane Sandy had something different in mind. I ended up having to rebook my flight from Seattle to New York for this coming Friday, so instead I made new plans to have dinner with one of my best friends in Ballard. But regardless what goes on this holiday, something as practical as this little gold Kipling bag is great for holding important things, like a small wallet and camera, your cell phone and maybe a lip gloss or two, when you go out on the town because let’s be honest, what else do you need on Halloween (or any night out really) besides a trusty little cross-body and an epic costume/outfit? Plus, doesn’t it remind you of something Carrie Bradshaw would own/wear? Total bonus points in my book.

Once again, I want to send out good  wishes and energy to my friends and family in the east coast area right now – please continue to stay safe and dry. Fingers crossed that power returns to everyone soon. Love you all! xo

Since I work for myself, my day to day is constantly changing depending on what’s happening with certain projects, clients or stories at the time. And, since I don’t go to a traditional office, on days that I am at home, getting caught up on emails, I prefer to try and get out of the apartment and head to my favorite coffee shop for a change of scenery. But that requires lugging my computer with me, which always ends up being put in a random tote bag or my purse, which can’t be good for my beloved MacBook Pro.
So, when Kipling asked me to give their tech-friendly tote a try, I jumped at the chance. I love that it has lots of pockets and compartments for all my necessities, which helps me stay organized, while keeping my laptop away from anything that could scratch or bang it up. I’ve found it’s a much better option than shoving it into my everyday purse, which is full of things like keys, sunglasses, a pair of heels and my SLR camera. Yes, I’d say this trusty little tote is a much better option for my everyday life. (I think I hear my laptop thanking me as I type… :)

After living in New York for eight years and working for myself for the past four, I find that taking breaks from the city helps me feel more grounded and centered when things get a little too hectic. So, my remedy tends to be to head home to Seattle as much as I can, and because of my flexible schedule it allows me to see my family and friends more often than not, which is pretty great in my mind. :)
And speaking of flying home, I am headed to Washington on tomorrow for a quick reprieve and am bringing this handy Kipling cross-body with me. I love a trusty and wearable bag that can withstand the daily wear and tear I impose on it since I tend to be fairly hard on my bags – poor things. Plus when traveling, everyone needs a bag with easy-to-get-to compartments for necessary items, such as a place for their licence, debit card, phone and keys, that you can grab at a moments notice. Check out all the other great cross body bags that Kipling as has to offer, here!
