Sometimes in life we see something and we just have to have it. We could have a million different versions of this particular item, but for some reason we need ~this~ one. For me, it was ~this~ bag from River Island. Did I need ANOTHER bag? No. Did I buy it anyway? Yes, yes I did. Continue reading “What’s in my bag?”
