Does anyone else find that each day just seems to get busier and busier? Between working to make an income, keeping fit at the gym, evenings spent blogging, all while trying to maintain a consistent and enjoyable social life – it can be tough and to be honest, daunting at times. Do I need my laptop today? Or is it my gym gear? Or all of it? Who knows.
That’s why now, I take the essentials with me during the working week so when I have a spare moment, I can really utilise that time and stay productive. Spare 20 minutes on my lunch break? Let’s crack out the laptop and type some blog content; or after work, I feel like heading to the gym, I have my running trainers, leggings and a sports bra always on hand – because I know as soon as I’m home that motivation will completely disappear.
None of this was possible before my precious Gaston Luga bag came into my life. When Gaston Luga kindly reached out to offer me one of their bags within the collection, I knew I had to jump at the chance. In my mind though, I was thinking about travel. On my last long-haul adventure to China, my rucksack straps on my fake designer bag ripped so I required a replacement desperately – that’s what you get for buying fake, folks. Now, don’t get me wrong, the Gaston Luga bag is perfect for travel but it’s also a paramount option for so much more.
If you don’t already know, Gaston Luga is a quality brand from Stockholm, Sweden, who specialise in Scandanavian designed backpacks. Their minimal style and colour selection make their pieces capsule wardrobe staples and leaving you in a state of hygge.
I opted for the Classy bag in black – a solid choice if I do say so myself. This spacious, canvas-style bag is fashionable, so I can wear it without worrying about ruining my outfit, yet incredibly practical. I don’t have to worry about carrying multiple bags full of items anymore, like a packhorse, or forgetting to pick one up as I leave the house as everything is in one place. The minimalist design makes this bag effortless to style as it goes with anything.
It’s also been a godsend when I’ve had social and blogging events after work and need to carry all of the essentials like a change of clothes, makeup and of course, dry shampoo, the most needed essential of them all. Usually, I can be seen rocking an extravagant, every-so-chic, Frozen carrier bag from Tesco with all of my belongings – but not now! Now, I socialise in style.
As I mentioned, this handy backpack will also be brilliant as hand luggage for a trip away too, making it a fabulously, versatile piece. And with a trip to Falkirk this weekend, you better believe this beauty will be travelling with me.
The bag itself comes equipped with a handy laptop pouch which is padded to give your laptop the protection it needs during those long commutes. The pocket fits most 11-13” laptops which is great!
It’s strong and durable in design so you won’t have to worry about the straps falling off, unlike a fake designer backpack…
Gaston Luga is also giving each customer a clear, travel Arlig pouch with their order, perfect for all of those little bits and bobs that go missing in the abyss of your bag. For me, that would be lipsticks – those pesky things disappear all of the time!
What’s more, is that Gaston Luga is offering 15% off on any purchase at the moment with code “KIRSTYJARVIE” so if you have your sights set on a bag, now is the time to do so!
