What I Bought: Urban Outfitters Pebbled Effect Satchel

My Urban Outfitters bag arrived this morning - bang on delivery time. I needed a new everyday black bag after I'd literally worn my old one to death. I like to buy my bags in black as it goes with everything and it's classic. I have to admit I was a bit put off purchasing this bag at first as I didn't like the £4.99 delivery that came along with it. Especially as the brown version was in store in Manchester and I can get student discount in the shop but not online (what is with that by the way?!) so I could have got the bag for £7 less if they'd had my colour in stock but hey, I guess that's life! 


The website describes it as an 'over-sized' bag which is slightly laughable to me who carries the contents of my home around with me daily. The bigger the bag, the better in my eyes - I like something that I can literally throw everything in - from a spare pair of heels to my collection of magazines. However, I do like the fact it's smaller than my previous bag (RIP) as it will encourage me to question what I actually need to carry around with me and give myself a lighter load so to speak. 


The bag itself is great for storage as the exterior features a back zipped pocket (perfect for when you want to grab something but don't want to open the entire inside contents of your bag), two open front pockets and finally the main zipped pocked. Inside of this there is an inside zipped pocket (which is an essential for me), plus a mobile phone holder. 


The real test will be when it comes to using it. Fingers crossed it meets my expectations!
