The Handbag Diary

The real conclusion has drawn to me as soon as I set my eyes on designer bags. Yes, they look beautiful, stylish and well-made. But as much as you enjoy carrying them on your arms, they bore and tear your pocket like bleach on an overused cotton shirt. If “look for less” is one of your fashion motto’s then I suggest you keep your eyes off these tempting bags. Some lessons I learned way back when I was naïve enough to even think of purchasing one was never buy it for the sake of “social status” or even Label Blindness. Women buy expensive bags while men drive expensive cars to be able to validate their economic standing (at least from my perspective). I believe we should spoil ourselves sometimes but isn’t a $1,000 hand bag kind of goes beyond the limits? But if you want hand bags that are beautiful, stylish and affordable at the same time, why not check out these Fashion Handbags.

Tote Handbags are perfect for work or a night in the town. They are big enough for you to store all your essentials and they are small enough for you to carry. And when you have a fancy dinner or maybe attend a special event, isn’t carrying bulky handbags a turnoff and would just spoil your whole outfit? Evening Handbags are must-have in these occasions. From Rhinestone Studded Fuchsia Sash Evening Handbag to a Black Polyester Evening Handbag. You can choose a wide variety of colors, size and design that would suit your style best. And who says handbags are only for women? Automotive Handbags have this unisex style that can use for both men and woman. It’s sturdy, durable and functional. And as they say imitation is the best form of flattery, so if you want to have a designer bag but not willing to pay the price, why not buy these Designer Inspired Handbags they honestly look good as the originals and serve the same function but are more affordable and easy on the budget.

My lustful attraction to designer handbags has vanished from my system. My infidelity for designer and expensive things may come back to haunt me from time to time and I may crave some when I see these delectable handbags online or inside glass windows. But law of gravity dictates, what goes up must come down and these once “it handbags” becomes just handbags.

When it comes to totes and handbags, you are certain that you always get what you pay for. But sometimes that is not always the case. There are times that you would get very expensive totes and handbags that turn out to be fake and flimsy. You would also get bags that, while highly stable and useful, end up being not the kind of bag you are actually looking for. It is a certainty that totes and handbags can be useful in their own right. But would it be better if you get a bag that can give you an opportunity to help Mother Earth?

Ma’mitons, a brand dedicated to creating some of the most fashionable and eco-friendly handbags across the globe, gives you the opportunity to do just that. Ma’mitons was first conceptualized by Cameroonian-born Priscilla aka Ma’mitons with the goal to help poverty around the world one step at a time. She comes from the village of Bangoulap and was given the rare opportunity to study and earn her bachelor’s degree in business at the University of Maryland. From then on, she focused on linking her own culture to the rest of the world while saving Mother Earth from further harm.

And she did just that through diligence and patience. For many years, she did thorough research and saved enough money to start her own fashion accessory brand you know as Ma’mitons. Most of her products include totes, handbags and many more accessories that you would die to have and they can serve as a great gift for your loved ones as well. Every totes and handbags she has available are created out of natural materials and are handmade with sheer intricacy by some of the best Cameroonian artisans she has ever hired.

The natural materials her brand uses are found somewhere in the forest of Cameroon, which can be found somewhere in Central Africa. The handbags, in particular, are crafted out of leaves known to them as raffia (ra-phia), leaves that grow naturally and are only found in the Cameroon forest. The raffia leaves are purely supple and hard-wearing, which makes it an excellent cloth to use to make clothes and wallets as well. With a cloth that is so durable yet so soft, there is no denying that these totes and handbags will last a lifetime and will be worth your purchase.

Looking at the pictures of totes and handbags on the website, you cannot help but be amazed at how beautiful the bags are and find it hard to believe that these are all handmade. And while they may come at hefty price tags, you are surely guaranteed that these totes and handbags will not disappoint you. And also, what you pay for will go to a good cause. Because every 1% of their sales will automatically go to the SOS Children’s Villages, a charity organization that helps orphans and abandoned children find a new home. Be part of the good cause.

Going Green in Motion.

Solar panels have long been considered a good source of alternate energy. We see them powering houses, street signs, and office buildings. We don’t normally think of taking them with us from place to place though. Be prepared. We’ve found a good source of alternate energy that can help you be more efficient too.

Have you ever been away from home and needed to make a call only to find that your cell phone battery was dead? I know I have. It’s always when you really desperately need to make a call. These days, pay phones are getting harder and harder to find. What’s a girl to do?

A company called Reware has got your back. They make and sell bags, totes, and even a “Profolio” that have their very own solar panel. The line is called Juice. If it has a cigarette lighter adapter then it will work with these bags.

From their site:

Juice Bags come with a built-in Car Lighter Adapter (CLA) socket – the same plug as in a car. It’s universal. Just plug in the adapter you would normally use in the car that is approved for your phone, PDA, MP3 player or other 12volt device. The moment sunlight falls on the Juice Bags solar panel, the bag generates electricity. It is that easy!”

Juice bags are made in the USA. Reware is interested in reducing it’s carbon footprint, but they are also interested in supporting the economy domestically.
