  • Annabel Trends Shoulder Bag Samsara
  • Annabel Trends Shoulder Bag Zebra


It seems when you go on holidays that Mum’s handbag turns into everyone’s bag! The Annabel Trends Shoulder Bag was given a very good road test on our recent family holiday to Lithgow in the Blue Mountains.  
When we travel we do a lot of walking with the kids. Everyone has their own camera (around their neck) and their own drink bottle; I make sure I carry snacks and treats to keep everyone going, too. Then there are the beanies, jackets, towels, sun cream and everything else that you carry just in case you need it! That not only weighs you down, but also makes it hard to find something at the bottom of the bag, with all the other stuff on top.
However the Annabel Trends handbag is extremely lightweight, yet strong and features long shoulder straps and lots of pockets on the outside. This meant I could use two pockets for drink bottles (yes, I was able to fit two bottles in each pocket), one pocket for cameras and the last outside pocket for lollies, tissues and little bits that would be lost elsewhere. The main compartment held my nappy wallet for Teddy and I was even able to fit a jumper in there and still be able to locate my mobile phone when it rang!
What surprised me the most was that the straps were long enough to make the bag double as a backpack, which proved easier to carry when walking long distances. With the thick straps it was also quite comfortable to carry this way, even with the weight I had packed into it. The kids quickly learned where their bottles were kept and always put them back in the right spot. 
As an everyday handbag I also loved the Annabel Trends Shoulder Bag as I don’t think I ever misplaced my wallet. Tucked away in the special zippered compartment in one of the pockets, it was easy to access and I didn’t have to rifle through everything else in the bag.  
The Annabel Trends Shoulder Bag comes in two gorgeous designs, Samsara and Zebra.

  Annabel Trends Shoulder Bag really nice. I like it's features and two front pockets; one fastened by a magnetic lock, the other by a zip. http://www.espelhofashions.com/
