Kipling’s Tamiko Laptop Backpack

On first sight the ‘Tamiko’ is unassuming and the Jersey Grey colour makes it versatile enough for most outfits. The medium backpack doesn’t completely give away it’s well thought-out design and functionality straight away. This well-design item makes it a perfect everyday work companion for college or work, with its two buckle cinch straps fastening, laptop protection and a neat pocket for your mobile or e-Reader. 

Carrying a lot of equipment on most occasions this bag perfectly accommodates for laptop, phone cables and even a change of clothes, bottled water and a spare pair of shoes. Multiple compartments and pockets allow me to keep things fairly organised. Padded back, and backpack straps make for a comfortable experience for back and shoulders when wearing the bag pack.

The beauty of the bag is while it is expandable and has quite a bit of depth to it, when you are carrying less tightening the straps ensures the bag remains aesthetically pleasing and doesn’t take up much room when standing or sitting on the busy tube during rush hour.

The waterproof interior ensures the back isn’t ruined in case of any spillages and also protects your clothing from any spillages in the bag. Ink, Drink, body oils, creams are all kept at bay and as someone who has experienced each of them it is a nice touch for those of us more inclined to experience those mishaps.

Priced between £96,- to £116,- is on the dearer side for the cash-strapped student but on the more affordable spectrum with good value for money. There are other brands offering the same and more in terms of organisation at much lower price points whilst embracing tech and security a little more such as USB charging port and antitheft facilities.

As with most purchases the buyers preferences regarding aesthetics, level of organisation, quality, functionality, and space required or desired, perceived value and their emotional connection to the brand may be a bigger deciding factor than budget alone. 

It’s a good bag pack practical enough for working and outside of working hours. Personally, if I considered using it for work alone my preferences would include better facilitation of tech that we all use on the move and higher level of organisation and security.  But an overall it’s a great bag that I will use frequently.

Ease and comfort in 2019!

summer fashion metaphor for ease and comfort result

Just like the very flavour of summer - blended in a drink altogether, the fashion for summer of 2019 is a perfect mixture of brights, pastels, ease, glams and comfort! The summer fashion trends for women include the classic and elegant fashion styles of trousers and blazers, maxi dresses, slip dresses, structured shirts, pleated skirts and milkmaid tops, with minimalistic styles when it comes to bags and ease and comfort for shoes. The effortless path to exploring the best complimenting shoes for the attires stops at the vast category of sandals, sliders, mules and clogs. The bags as to be considered the value-added accessories are in fashion with shades of blue and beige in clutch bags and tote bags whereas the chic shade of black in the classic backpacks!

Easy Sneakers And Backpacks

Trainers and backpack paired with denim shorts or jeans is the ultimate king of comfort and classic summer appeal. The trainers have been in trend since last year and haven’t really gone out. Trainers in white and beige are perfect summer attire with ease and comfort fused with style, and the glam of prints. The graphic details added, is the millennial twist to the modern yet chic trainer design. When paired with milkmaid tops of bright shades and denim shorts or jeans or a summer dress, trainers can be encorporated into a casual outfit for the beach or even a day out shopping!

Sandals And Clutch Bags

Sandals are the ultimate all-rounder for fashion trends in shoes, with heeled sandals and strappy sandals in black, glimmers of metallic and jewels are perfect alternatives for the less comfortable stilettos and high heels! Small heeled sandals in black are perfect for formal as well as semi-formal party settings, and the flat strap sandals in gold and silver, glammed with jewels are perfect for a relaxed party attire, paired with playsuits or maxi dresses. The strappy heeled sandals in metallic shades also offer a complimenting look to midi dresses or split skirts and dresses as well. Sandals paired with a clutch bag is a multi-purpose duo for many settings!

Sliders And Mules

Sliders and mules are the ultimate casual attire when it comes to dressing for the summer season. The sliders in tan shades offer a perfect compliment to the classic pleated skirt-structured shirt duo this summer. Mules in black with kitten heels, provide comfort and stylish design to the vintage checked blazer-suit outfit for professional as well as casual days-out. Alternatively, brightly coloured mules worn with a simple dress, or coupled with baggy jeans and a thin knit top, offer that vintage look. Sliders and mules are perfect example of summer fashion which is easy and comfortable, yet still having high-end fashion appeal.

The Only Curls Hair Towel at a cost of £15.00, is a manmade miracle for those of us with curly hair! The towel is made of microfibres which have been developed specifically for curly hair, offering  a simple solution for frizz-free curls after washing.

Hair is most fragile when wet and the uneven surface of a regular cotton towel roughens up cuticles and absorbs moisture from only the surface of the hair. Uneven cuticles and imbalanced moisture distribution results in frizz! This towel is small and quite thin, so not too bulky to carry in your gym bag, or overnight bag either. The 100% microfibre smooth yarns leave cuticles intact and absorb just the right amount of moisture for perfect frizz free curls every time! Try it! You will love it. We did!
