Neat shit worth sharing – school edition

Hi all, long time no write.

As with all bloggers who experience a prolonged absence, life just got kicked into overdrive. Fortunately for me, overdrive meant very, verrry good things.

I might have mentioned that I was applying to graduate school and right now we are in the midst of interview season. I went on one and I have two more next week.

Well, I’m happy to say I got in! I’m going to enter a PhD program in the upcoming fall!

Which means a couple of things: 1) I can finally not stress about my fate being determined by admissions committees any longer and these next two interviews are completely stress free since the school I got into was my top pick and 2) I get to do back to school shopping again! YAY!

So while I wait for the Lisa Frank online store to get back into working order so I can buy a new trapper keeper, I thought I’d focus on my favorite item, the back to school bag.

I have been on a never ending search for the perfect tanish/brown, leather, messenger bag that I think may still be out of my reach for reasons like this:

mulberry bag

$1,250.00! For that amount of money I want more than just free shipping – I want it shipped and delivered to me by a shirt-less, male model riding a horse.

This almost makes this bag at $450 sound reasonable.

green bag

Such a cute style and color! But alas, no amount of saying “I’m worth it” is going to convince my credit dog.

So here are some more wallet friendly options – what do you think?

Happy weekend everyone!
