I love a giveaway, I really do. There are loads on Instagram at the moment. If you see one you should definitely enter it, even if you think ‘oh I’ll never win’ because it feels like there are 20,000 other people out there who have also entered.
Because if you do enter a giveaway, occasionally you will win!
Isn’t it pretty?
I’ve never had a brightly coloured bag. I have always gone for either tan or black because ‘they go with everything’. And it’s true, they do go with everything. But I am really loving the extra edge a fun coloured handbag brings to the outfit equation.
I’ve never actually had any ‘mustard yellow’ in my wardrobe and I am surprised with how versatile it is as a colour. I tend to wear a lot of black, or at the very least a lot of neutrals, so a fun and colourful handbag really makes a statement (a good one of course).
It’s made of silicone which means no worrying about spillages, which is good for me as I’m a bit clumsy sometimes. The silicone actually feels really cool! I showed my husband and he thought it was pretty awesome as well. I think a silicone bag is such a clever idea, and it would be great for anyone with kids (or people who are just prone to spillages like me) as you can just wipe any mess or spills straight off it.
The handles are a good length for carrying either over the forearm or by holding the handles, and it also comes with a detachable longer strap which is something I definitely look for in a bag. I like the versatility of just using the handles, or by using the longer strap to turn it into an over the shoulder or cross body bag. That kind of versatility is always a winner for me when it comes to a handbag.
What is the best thing you’ve won in a giveaway? Are you a fan of a brightly coloured bag?
