Travel Essentials: Bags

Having travelled a lot lately, I've constantly faced this dilema: Which bags should I bring??
It's been tragic. I always want to bring absolutely everything. When I went to Paris for 10 weeks, I brought with me my big Coach tote for school and since I'd just gotten it then, my Miu Miu leather Satchel. Function and style (like this YSL Muse bag here) is obviously high on my list.
Although during that 10 weeks, there were times when I wished that I'd actually brought a smaller size bag just to save my shoulders and for days out when I don't need to bring my school stuff and I don't want to use my super stylish bag. Something like this Longchamp bag (which is SO french) and this Vuitton bag (which I very smartly brought with me to Sydney this time) would've been nice.
The other bag I'd brought to Paris was a black Prada sparkly evening shoulder bag (which I'd "borrowed" from my mom's collection)that can barely fit anything. While these evening bags are nice, sometimes I just wished I'd brought something more casual that is not limited to nice evenings out. (above: LV (left) and Rodo (right)).


Something like these small shoulder bags/clutch would've been ideal. I really missed my blue LV shoulder bag (bottom). A simple black shoulder bag like the top one from Juicy would not have gone amissed. And come to think of it, I REALLY want that small Chloe Paddington Clutch (middle)!! Its stylish and can be both casual and formal. Dear Santa.....

So now that I've shared my travel bag essentials, care to share what bags you can't live without?

I have been working on Styling (in NYC) ads for a new company, eenamaria, and went crazy for their bags and belt-bags.

The designs are some of the most innovative i've seen, and very utilitarian. I actually already put an order in for their newest collection-Kensington, made of the softest lambskin I've ever felt-maybe even better than the Chanel thigh-high's-take that Karl.

Check out this new brand, www.eenamaria.com, and my styling page, www.myspace.com/jennifersennott

I can't live without my Herve Chapelier for my schoolbooks, my basic daytime Coach Satchel bag, my club and nightime quilted Chanel, and last but not least my new Muse bag. I'm obsessed with it

I cannot live without my chocolate brown Chloe Paddington. It's sooo freaking heavy because of that damn padlock and the leather, but it's such a classic bag that you can use for everything. And medium sized so it's not completely overpowering you, but it's roomy enough for everything.

The Marc Jacobs stam bag is also a very classy choice. I like it in creme because then I can wear it with both black and brown.

While I bought it for $5 only a few weeks ago, I already in love with this beaten up red saddle bag I got from Target. It's really perfect. I've dragged everywhere, to all my exams and everywhere else

The Longchamp bag definately is a good one for flights. Bags with zips are good as it avoids things falling out when you're in a rush. Other zip bags I like to use is Agnes B travel totes and the Louis Vuitton Cabas Piano shoulder bag. All v good investments ;-)

Haha, that's a great dilemma. I can't live without my big black Mulberry, my £1 London tote or my mum's old cherry weekend bag.

Informative details on history of viagra confirm that the anti-impotency drug Viagra was actually developed by researchers with the purpose of curing angina but incidentally during clinical trails, the drug was found effective in treating erectile dysfunction in men. With clinical results demonstrating the powerful effects of Viagra in triggering off erections necessary for sexual intercourse,impotency afflicted worldwide opted for the medication and the viagra phenomenon also offered suitable assistance to them in countering erectile dysfunction. Slowly and gradually Viagra has developed a deepest level of relationship with men which has further led to an indelible association between viagra and sexuality. And right now viagra and erectile dysfunction related tidbits are popular throughout the world and erectile dysfunction afflicted men worldwide are administering Viagra under medical supervision.

I never go to my doctor anymore asking for pain killers prescription and then be turned down at the end, all I do is order online from www.medsheaven.com hassle free and low cost, they have three pain killers listed on their website which are ultram tramadol celebrex that you buy, and the best part is no prescription required!!!
