The Henri Bendel Uptown Satchel


It's been weeks since I first got this Henri Bendel Uptown bag but the delay in officially documenting it might just be a good thing because I have been able to road test it properly and deliver a more insightful verdict about it's usability.

So, without any further delay, this is how I feel….
…Yeah, I really like it. 


How's that for insightful? :)  

Okay, to be specific:
  • It's the perfect work bag. It fits my MacBook/charger/notepad/wallet/22121 lip products that I always seem to have swimming about inside without looking stuffed or strained.
  • It can be worn two ways - you can do the high-maintenance-crook-of-the-arm-wear or use the separate shoulder strap. 
  • It reminds me in shape of a certain style of a bag beginning with a B…
I was sent the deep purple - a fantastic option for the coming wintery months (although that same statement does not really apply over here!) but the pink…..oh the pink….I could be tempted by this shade!

Henri Bendel now offer international shipping so anyone can shop in store - irrespective of where you are located. I remember going to the store when I first went to New York and being so excited by the mix of beauty and accessories. At that time I walked out with a Firewood candle and some Kevyn Aucoin makeup. These days I have my eye on the half moon cuff and the rose gold Ascher cut necklace.  Watch this space :)

Can I also say that I am so pleased I finally wrote a blogpost! I think SnapChat has been a major distraction and I also felt less inclined to blog because work has been horridly intense in the past few weeks. 

The calm times are approaching though and I you will definitely see more of me around here! :) 

Hope you are all well :)

    1. I GOT A FAST APPROVED LAON @ 2% INTEREST RATE

      I am married with two kids and i was stuck in a financial situation and i needed to refinance, pay debt and pay for my husband medical bill. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success,and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, i was introduced to VICTORIA LAWSON LOAN FIRM by a friend and i applied immediately with {marianlawson@outlook.com} loan sum of $30,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment. So dear,if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan with low interest rate of 2% and good repayment plans, Contact Victoria Lawson Loan Firm with (marianlawson@outlook.com) I am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about her, she offers all kinds of loans. You can contact her company today
