Weekends With The Cambridge Satchel Company

Did somebody say handbag?! I'm about to spend the next 5 minutes of your life gushing about my all round love for handbags and in particular my snazzy new Cambridge Satchel! *droools* 

A couple of posts ago I explained I was tired of being a fatty and wanted to take the transformation, come blood, sweat, doughnut refusal tantrums and tears, to become Beyonce slimmer. In order to motivate myself and basically have an incentive to say 'no' to all those fatty oh so bad badness food, my boyfriend offered to go halves as well as pay for embossing on a Cambridge Satchel should I meet my goal weight. Two Weight Watching months later and BAM I reached my goal weight and it was goodbye thunder thighs (my thighs do still applaud me as I walk up and down the stairs!) and permanent food baby and hello shiny leather Mini Cambridge Satchel of goodness in the colour 'Dusk Blue'!

It's been a dream of mine to own a satchel made by The Cambridge Satchel Company for many years and I cannot believe I have one that is all mine!! I wanted a mini satchel for summer holidays but quite frankly, I am that in love with it it has become my current permanent weekend bag. 

The detailing is so beautiful, from the stitching to the logo imprinted on the back of the bag. Plus I adore having my initials embossed on the front, it makes it extra special and one of a kind! The quality in leather and make of these satchels is truly a work of art.

The irony (although their are no complaints here!) was that this losing weight reward came accompanied with a Curly Wurly! Nice touch Cambridge Satchel (I let the boyf have that one, after all he did pay for two thirds of the bag!)

I do have a life long lust for a larger 13" Cambridge Satchel in 'Oxblood'. Something about them is so alluring. The vintage look of them is enough to die for and they just scream 'British'. I love it! Maybe come Autumn I could treat myself, after all, a girl can never have enough handbags!
