I was sent a wonderful handbag to review from Nicola at handbaglover.co.uk. She chose to send me the Amanda bag and it is absolutely fantastic!
The bag looks really expensive and yet it doesn’t have a high price tag….in fact the Amanda bag is only £40 from her online handbag boutique, Handbag Lover.
The bag is really spacious and easy to carry. You can either opt to carry your handbag with the tote straps or you can clip on the long over body strap and wear it across your body or slung over your shoulder.
Any mums out there will really like this bag because of the fact it has a removable internal compartment. This detachable inside zip-up pocket is the perfect place to keep your kid’s change of clothes, wet wipes, etc so that you can access them at a moment’s notice. The alternative is to keep the children’s bits and bobs in the main body of the bag and instead use the internal compartment to store your valuable essentials such as mobile, purse and camera, etc.
The bag is made from a leather look material and the inside of the bag is a ‘soft to touch’ material in a taupe colour. It looks posh and very grown-up…no wipe clean vinyl lining here! Something I’m used to as I have spent so long using changing bags when I go out :o)
The bag also has a natty little detachable coin purse which is handy to keep the pound coins in, whether they be for a trolley or for a kid’s £1 toy near the checkouts.
The Amanda bag would be useful for all sorts of people. It could be used as an executive style handbag for the office, as a deluxe style changing bag for yummy mummys, as a smart holiday bag or as a general day-to-day handbag that has enough room for all those handbag essentials. It is the perfect handbag to add to your collection. :o)
There is a zip up panel across the top. This gives you peace of mind that your belongings are secure inside. If you choose to store your purse and keys in the detachable inside pouch then they will be even safer which is fantastic.
If you are looking for a spacious handbag that has a designer appearance then look no further than the Amanda handbag. It has gorgeous handles with a laced design (see photo below to see what I mean) and all the little extras, such as the clip on long strap, detachable compartment and coin purse, make this bag a fabulous find!
You are sure to be delighted with it and all your friends will be ‘très envieux!’
You can buy the handbag from the Handbag Lover website but please be warned…when you visit the site I would not be surprised in the slightest if you end up treating yourself to more than one bag. There are so many beautiful bags to admire! If you are a Handbag Lover please pop by and make friends with Nicola on facebook and twitter. She will give you a warm welcome to her fabulous handbag boutique.
My other favourite handbags from the site are the Emma handbag in emerald, the Lexi satchel in dusky pink and the Katie handbag in red. the bags on the site are organised into the following categories – All Handbags, Shoulder Bags, Tote Bags, Across Body Bags and Clutches/ Purses. They even stock Ipad covers. I have a feeling the category you will all browse the most is the SALE one though…..how can you resist a new handbag when it’s on sale. At the time of writing this there are no bags on sale but make sure to keep checking back to see when new handbags are added.
Before I go I would just like to apologise to Nicola for taking so long to write and publish this review and I’d like to congratulate her on having one of her handbags featured in this weeks Woman magazine! How fab is that! :o) Here’s a photo of the feature (courtesy of Handbag Lover’s twitter page).
Please pop over to the Handbag Lover website and have a look-see at the wide array of colourful, designer style handbags available. Thanks everyone.
