Two New Shoulder Bags

I don't know about you, but in summer time, I am all about the quirky little shoulder bags. It is way too hot and heavy to be lugging around a great big 'Mary Poppins'-esque bag with everything but the kitchen sink in. In summer, I prefer everything much easier and quicker. With this in mind, I made a sneaky little purchase on and added two cute shoulder bags to my basket.

I've wanted to order from for a long time, as they are always advertised on my Facebook and Instagram feeds, so I thought a bag purchase would test the quality first before I splurge on clothes. I got 60% off my order, making these bags highly affordable, and I think you can get 60% off too on your first order. The shipping took about a week, but as it was free shipping I couldn't really complain, and it is a Chinese company so I was expecting it to take longer.

Starting with the Flower Embroidery Flap Chain Crossbody Bag. I bought this bag as I don't own any white bags at all, and I like the multi-coloured floral embroidery detailing as a fun way to jazz up a boring outfit, or to incorporate more colour. Also white is such a summery colour! It has a simple click in to place fastening, and just one big pocket inside. It is not the biggest bag, and it will probably just hold the essentials, but sometimes that is all one needs. It also has a long gold chain for the handle which makes the bag fall on my hip. I got this for £15.14, and its full price is £35.07. The only thing to be wary about with wearing a white bag with jeans is that the colour of the jeans could transfer on to the bag, especially if its from a cheaper material, which this could be as I haven't tested it yet. It feels quite nice quality though.

The Camera Shaped Crossbody Bag with Buckle was a love at first sight purchase. As you may have noticed, I am putting more effort in to my blog and loving it, and so taking beautiful pictures is currently an obsession that I am trying to perfect, so buying anything camera related helps right?  Even though this bag is smaller in height, it has more hidden pockets and is wider, so will hold the same amount of stuff or even more potentially. It has a pocket at the back that doesn't close but looks perfect for a phone that can be easily slipped in and out, and then a small zip pocket on the inside. The cute lens is also a small little circular pocket with a zip. It also features a gold chain handle, but with a striped buckle to make it slightly more comfortable on your shoulder, and the chain is shorter making the bag fall above my hip. I again got this bag for £15.14, and its full price is again £35.07. 

What are your current favourite bags?
