OOTD: A Digital Nomad

Long time no outfit post right? Yes I know. I kind of lost my outfit post mojo some weeks ago but I think I have found it now. I have been so busy in the last couple of weeks, so outfit posts have been the last thing on my mind (sorry fashionistas) but I found style inspiration from somewhere a few days ago and shot some outfit photos. So brace yourselves, I think I am back in the game!

This outfit post is centred around this stunning brown KNOMO bag. I came across this Audley Slim Leather Bag by Knomo some days ago and I was blown away by the amount of space in it and how light weight it was (0.88kg). Most similar bags with a lot of compartments tend to weigh a lot more than this so it was love at first sight as soon as I carried it.

In this bag, I can conveniently carry my laptop, iPad, Kindle, phones, notepad, pens, wallet and other bits easily. It has so much space but in a slim compact design which is brilliant. I can see myself using this chic bag a lot. It oozes sophistication and understated style. It is so stylish and smart – the bag of the future. And great for a digital nomad like me. I can take all I need for work away with me in just this bag.

KNOMO bags are all about an organised life (#LIFEORGANISED) with a good-looking and functional bag. The whole idea behind the life organised message is about making everyday easier for digital nomads by eliminating clutter, and organising your belongings as efficiently as possible in a KNOMO bag. From luggage to organisers, backpacks to clutches, there is a KNOMO product for everyone – men and women available.

The coat I have on is an Oldie but a true Goldie. I have had it for a few years now and it still looks as good as new. That is why I rather cough out good money and buy quality than spend a few quid on a piece that wouldn’t even last a season. I can still see myself wearing this stunning winter coat many winters to come. Except I give it out of course.

I got the other items I have on about a year ago and they are all still going strong.

The Gift of a Scent

The gift of a scent is one of the best gifts you can give a perfume lover like me because you are not only giving me a perfect present I would love, you are also gifting me a memory. And since it is the season of giving, I have been thinking of various fragrances and perfumes and which scents I would love to give and receive this Christmas. Choosing the right scent for a loved one can be very tricky, you have to get it right which means you have to know what scents the person would like. It can’t be too strong or too mild, it can be a weak or an overpowering fragrance, it has to be just perfect. Which is why I won’t recommend you buy a perfume as a Christmas gift except you know the recipient of the gift inside out.

Here are a few perfume ideas you may find useful –

 

Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Eau De Parfum Spray

I love this fragrance. It smells amazing and stays on all day. The bottle is a beauty, and I think it would make a fabulous Christmas present. It may be pricey for many with prices ranging from £64 to £90, but I bet it would make that special person very happy.

 

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum

This is another great Christmas gift idea for a perfume lover. This YSL Black Opium is a lovely and fresh feminine fragrance. The packaging is so beautiful. And it stays on for ages too. Prices vary from £47 to £87.

 

Gucci Bamboo Eau De Parfum

This Gucci Bamboo perfume has a fruity/floral fragrance that smells divine and stays on all day. I would be thrilled to receive this perfume, I think it looks heavenly and smells even more heavenly. Prices range from £68 to £80.

 

Prada La Femme Prada Eau De Parfum

This Prada perfume is a true jewel. The amazing bottle is a stunner, and the floral fragrance leaves you smelling amazing all day. It is a great scent for the season, and a fantastic Christmas gift idea. Prices range from £49 to £99.

 

These perfumes are great Christmas gift ideas for the perfume lovers in your life, or anyone who likes to smell nice. You can get them and more at House of Fraser.
