I’ve had my handbag for a while now, I’d say over a year at least. It’s quite a big bag – my boyfriend calls it my Mary Poppins bag because I carry so much stuff in it! But it’s been perfect to use during the week when I have a lot to carry to and from work.
I have to admit, it’s from Primark or as I like to call it ‘Primani’, not the classiest of shops! But considering I only paid £10 for it, it’s lasted a long time.
Anyway I was really sad this week to discover that I couldn’t do it up properly because the clasp was hanging off (See below).
Then pay day arrived and I decided it was time to treat myself and to say goodbye to my Primani lovely.
My colleague suggested I try looking on Topshop’s website, and shortly after I started looking through their collection, I found a gem, ‘The Maggie Bag’ By Marc B. It’s a good size and I love the metal heart and the pocket on the front.
At £45 it was affordable for me and I shopped using Give as you Live, which means 2% of my total spend went to my favourite cause, Dementia UK.
24 hours after purchasing I got the Thank you email below. Now I just have to wait ‘patiently’ for Maggie to arrive!
