The Cambridge Satchel


I thought I'd show you one of my all time favourite bags. I received this Cambridge Satchel for my 19th birthday in September, and I've been using it pretty much every day since to take my books to university. 

This is the 15 inch, Dark Brown , classic satchel. I chose this one as I thought it would go with everything and be a classic piece in my wardrobe for years to come, and I truly think that's going to be the case. It's extremely good quality and very sturdy, supporting a couple of my books and even my Mac Book Air when I need it to. The 15 inch is a good size to get if you want to carry around A4 books and an A4 ring binder as they will fit very comfortably. The satchel is thick and sturdy, it stands up by itself and protects my items inside.

I love how it gets better with age and becomes slightly worn and loved looking. The straps used to be quite stiff but the leather has softened up beautifully. It's an investment piece, but a really worth while investment, always going with my outfit and always looking stylish. 

I can't recommend the Cambridge Satchels enough, I get so many complements on mine and I know it's going to last me a long time.

  8. Wow this satchel is amazing!

    My cakes came out a reddy orange colour tbh, they weren't as red as I'd hoped and I put quite a bit in. I used the one they suggested.

    But I have the Primrose Bakery book as well and they don't make red velvet cupcakes because they say you have to put sooo much colouring in to make them a deep red that it's not good for you :/ They don't like making cakes with too much artificial stuff in. But I love them, the cream cheese icing is so yum!! xxx

  10. I'm so considering one of these before I go to uni. They are so classic and go with anything. I think it's worth the hefty price tag. xo
