As some, but not all of you know, I have been working independently for about six years or so. My life is tailored to what feels best to me and makes me the happiest. I can handle sacrifice and hardships as long as there is purpose behind it all. As a business owner I get the chance to custom make my life and I also, custom make most of my days when I need to (I am working towards being able to custom make everyday as I please!). Freedom is definitely my driving force, Unconventionality is a constant in the way I lead my life and how I decide to spend my days, My definition of success is a bit different than most people's definition of success. So it comes natural that I person like me would be super excited about getting a handbag that is 100% custom made!
The talented Ana from Anoushka Design and I met on Instagram. She kindly offered me a custom made handbag to try out. I must be honest. At first I was doubtful that she'd be able to meet all the things I needed in the bag. I am a perfectionist with keen attention to small details. We exchanged emails back and forth where she asked me questions about my design until we were both clear on the final product.
My bag took a few weeks to arrive as it was made to order and shipped all the way from Croatia! I was so excited the whole time and just couldn't wait to get my hands on it! When it arrived it was everything I had imagined and more. Every detail, compartment, zipper. Everything! It was exactly what I asked for. I needed a bag that could transition from work at home, to work at the cafe, to Target runs, to drinks with friends, and even to weekend getaways!
I could have just presented you with the bag and showed you how cute it is but I wanted you to see how much it fits me and my lifestyle. This is the 'Ana Bag' as I like to call it. I don't think the designer will mind as we share the same name, lol! This bag is so ideal for me. However, it might not be so ideal for you and your needs. That is why, regardless of who you are. Whether you are a barista or work in corporate america. You need your custom made handbag too! It feels so good to know that even the tiniest compartment has a purpuse and an item it was designed for. You can pick the color, materials, divisions, zippers, color of the zippers. You have complete and absolute design freedom!

I love hearing from you. Are you a fan of handbags? What is a must have in every bag you own? For me, I love long straps. I like bags that allow me to have my hands free...you never know when you need to carry a shopping bag and a cup of coffee you know😉.
Thanks for the visit darlings! See you in the next post!
