NOW CLOSED! Alexa-esque Satchel Giveaway!

After tweeting a photo of my new purchase of this replica Alexa bag I got so many comments from people saying how much they loved it, that I decided it would be the perfect gift to giveaway to celebrate hitting 400 followers on my blog a few days ago.
The Alexa bag is somewhat of a bloggers staple, but for those of us that struggle to find the change for a sandwich at lunchtime, forking over at least £695 to own one is a bit of a pipe dream. For me personally it's something that I will treat myself to when I finally have a good job, I think I'll know I've made it when I have a real one all of my own!

I absolutely love this replica version (lets just clear this up right now, this is NOT a real Alexa, just before anyone wins and then complains that I've sent them this haha), which I picked up for myself after spending a few days trying to find the best one, and I'm SO pleased with it. Its really nice quality, and a nice shade of tan PU leather (fake leather!) rather than being too orange and cheapey. I also love the inside of it, a cute floral lining with a zip up inside pocket for valueable bits and pieces, and a little slot at the side for a mobile and oyster card. It also comes with a long shoulder strap which is really handy. I've had a lot of compliments about this bag already since I got it a few days ago, and one girl even said to me 'OMG is that an Alexa?!?!', trololololol.

  63. Hello - as per the previous poster - I was wondering if you could tell us where you ultimately decided to buy the bag? I've been scouring the net for one but an unsure where to buy. Thanks in advance :)

  64. You may also feel like you were about turn out to be overwhelmed from the intense sexual excitement on the well done gay sizegenetics. You could potentially locate a Gay sizegenetics therapist in the website for sexy sizegenetics. They can indeed be able to take appointments to acquire a Male sizegenetics today. There are actually plenty of different versions of sizegenetics. There's always a therapeutic sizegenetics that you may receive on your chiropractor that targets specific areas of pain or past injury sites; you have sizegenetics that will be occuring at public spas, where you'll make an appointment and enjoy a specific period of relaxing Shiatsu, hot stone, or aromatherapy sizegenetics; then you have erotic sizegenetics. Each offers its own advantages and serves its own purposes.
