Can't Live Without It

Today I'm linking up with my good friend Cait and blogger friends Laura and Stephanie and sharing what I can't live without!



When I started to think about something I can't live without my purse quickly popped in my head. 

I've had my Cuyana Leather Tote for over a year and a half, although it feels like way longer, and I've never gotten more compliments on a purse or been in love with a purse more. Yes, I'm in love with my purse. It isn't just any old purse, Theo gave it to me for our one year wedding anniversary embossed with my new initials. That big black hole is practically my buddy. It goes everywhere with me, to work, vacations, the store, on a boat, on a plane, you get the idea. It does have one pocket so it isn't a full big black hole but it isn't uncommon for me to clean it out, you know every 6 months or so, and find a recipe or grocery store list from over a year ago or a half eaten Kind bar.

Surprisingly for how rough I am on the old bag, it looks almost brand new. I say almost because it developed it's first black ink mark that I can't get off. Usually I can get pen marks off with some alcohol wipes but this mark ain't budging. I like to think it gives it character. 

As much as I love my Cuyana tote, I wouldn't be too hurt if Theo surprised me with a newer model one these days. I'm thinking a push present/diaper bag.  hint, hint :)

  1. I do love your tote! And the fact it's monogrammed is so cute! I don't think I could live without my purse either. Can you imagine having to carry everything in your pockets? I feel like that would be SO uncomfortable! Happy Friday girl!

  3. I had a Madewell Transport Tote, it's really similar. I love, love, love it. Perfect for almost anything and looks better as it ages. I need to get it monogrammed, though!

  6. I love the fact that the new one has a zipper! My purse always falls over in the car and without a zipper, EVERYTHING would fall out.
    Happy weekend!
