Bag Blaze was kind enough to send me a bag of my choice to review for my readers as well as sponsor a giveaway! This post is way overdue. It was suppose to be part of my back to school segment but problems came up and I was not able to post. The only good thing about this post being overdue is that I will be able to give a thorough review, since I have been using this bag everyday for the past few months.
I will start off by telling you guys what bag blaze is about. Bag Blaze is an online store that sells quality/pricey bags for a cheaper price. They have a variety of bags and in different colors. They get new handbags all the time, so there will be a bag that everyone will like. You can also get free handbags! Of course, you would have to purchase some first. Basically it's a point system. Every 50 points is $5, each bag varies by points depending on the price of the bag.
Out of all the bags they had on their website I decided to choose 'Lyneya Satchel in black'. Sadly, it is not available anymore. The page is there but it is not available for purchase. It is made out of synthetic leather and silver hardware. It has several pockets. One zipper pocket on the back and a pocket pouch in the front as well as a zipper pocket inside the bag and cell and sunglasses pocket. The bag also has a zip top closure and is quite spacious inside. The handles are braided and sturdy; also comes with a detachable adjustable shoulder strap.
I decided to start with the photos from the website. You can see that the photos are exactly what you get in person! Which is great for an online website.. since I usually get sketchy about whether I will get what is in the photos.
Everything is the same from the color and hardware on the bag. I have been taking this bag everywhere. To school and to the store when I'm not really going anywhere lol. It fits my notebooks, folders, pencil bag, makeup bag, sun glasses, reading glasses, car keys, candy (snacks), water bottle (sometimes 2) and does not feel heavy at all (the adjustable strap comes in handy). My pepper spray hangs perfectly on the side (I have night classes, so I keep my pepper spray close). I love the braided handles! They are soft and thick but not weak.
My first impression of the bag was excitement. I also thought that it was bigger than I was expecting (the bigger the better though right?). It did have a bad scent to it in the beginning, so I had to let it air out. It took several days to air out.
♡Where can you get it:
I stated previously that my bag was not available for purchase at the moment but if you really like my bag you can email them and ask them for it, doesn't hurt to try. You can go to their website, to check out their deals and bags that they have to offer. www.bagblaze.com
Why the 4 hearts approval? Like I said previously, I have been using it everyday and taking it everywhere with me. Aside from the awkward scent in the beginning, I absolutely love it. I love the color, texture and feel of the bag. The fabric is soft and just so comfy to wear. I also love that it has a lot of pockets, which is a plus for me because I love pockets.. makes my bag easier to organize. There are several clutches and new bags that I have been seeing on the website that I want to get.. so I will probably get those soon as well (not like I need more bags right? haha).
