Last weekend, I was talking about things I wanted for my birthday.
My friend, Angela, piped up and said “The most expensive birthday gifts are the ones that you buy for yourself.”
I have been lusting after a handmade leather satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Company ever since I have moved back from England in 2011.
When I saw that there was free shipping for the months of May and June, I knew my time had come. I carefully picked out the size, chose my style of embossing and hit the purchase button with a flourish.
Within days, it had arrived at my doorstep in all of it’s deep leather glory and I was rocking it at the MagNet conference all week.
I even had Lyndsey call out “Bye, Jessica’s bag!” as she was leaving the office today. (Yes, I somehow managed to work with one of my best friends of all time.)
So, rather than keep this awesomeness to myself, I think you should buy one too. But not yellow. I have dibs.
Regardless, this is my new bag and I am proud of it.
I sold my old Matt & Nat handbag to a coworker and will be proudly showcasing the bright yellow against my hopelessly boring outfits in a valiant effort to perk up my style.
What is your latest splurge?
