Briefcases for Women Shouldn’t Be Boring

Briefcases for Women Shouldn’t Be Boring

If you think Briefcases for Women, what do you have in mind? Black, boring and rather masculine looking work bags? Bags which are practical but far from being stylish? Well if I think of Briefcases for Women I think of a handbag, which gets me through the day, no matter how busy it is. I think of bright colors, a roomy and practical inside with a beautiful outside. Just because we mean Business, it doesn’t mean that we have to give up our style. So I personally like my Laptop…

Take Your Best Friend to the Races

Looking for the perfect bag for the Spring Racing Carnival? When you’re going to the races you know its going to be a long day. You have to think about that when you’re choosing your outfit.  You have to wear something that looks fabulous but is going to last the distance.

Its also got to last the distance,…

Now’s the Time to Spring Clean your Handbag

Now’s the Time to Spring Clean your Handbag

We all know about the benefits of Spring Cleaning your home and wardrobe. Nothing beats opening those cupboard doors and seeing everything all lined up and co-ordinated – whether its your Kitchen Pantry or your Wardrobe. When was the last time you Spring Cleaned your Handbag or Work Bag? I just did mine and I can’t tell you what I found in it – disgusting really! All those old tissues and wrappers that I just thrust back into my bag when there wasn’t a bin handy over the last few months of…

Best Women’s Travel Bags

Why our Bags are so great for Travel I’ve been overseas twice in the last 2 months.    First trip was to an Accessory and Materials Fair in Hong Kong and then onto the factory in China to brief in our next fabulous range of Women’s Business Bags.  The second was to Bali with friends for a week of total over indulgence! For both trips, our bags proved invaluable. Firstly, the business trip: This time I didn’t take a Lindsay Laptop Bag, my usual Business Travel Bag. I took everything I…

How to Travel Smart

How to Travel Smart

Qantas interviewed their most frequent Frequent Flyers and asked them for their tips on how they travel and survive away from home and stay unruffled, elegant and efficient. Because you can no longer manufacture bags in Australia (sad to say this industry no longer exists), I have to travel frequently to our overseas factory. Some of these things they’ve recommended I already do but I thought I’d share what I think are the best. Switch off your Bluetooth when out and about – hacking is now too sophisticated. Take a four-point Australian…

How to Organise your Work Bag

How to Organise your Work Bag

Everyone has a bag that they currently take to and from the office everyday.  The problem with a fashion handbag is they’re not designed as work bags. Their straps are not strong enough and they don’t have a place for everything that you need at your fingertips. This means that every time you try to find something it’s jumbled with everything else in the bottom of your bag.  If you need to take an electronic device to work, or to a meeting, then you need to carry another bag…

Revamp your Work Wardrobe for 2014 for under $200!

Christmas is over for another year and another New Year is upon us. I gave up making New Year’s Resolutions a long time ago – just too much pressure too early in the year! Now, I try to take some time when I’m sitting on the beach in January thinking about the year that’s been and what changes and goals I want to achieve in the year ahead. Nothing concrete, just some ‘big picture’ thinking that I can then turn into documented goals when I’m back in the office in work…

Women Helping Women – Why I love the Sisterhood!

I’ve taken delivery of the samples for the next range of My Best Friend is a Bag, fabulous work bags for women.  The hard work has started! Every bag has to be photographed inside and out, plus you need the ‘fashion’ shots. Those shots that you’ll use for PR and Social Media and every other opportunity that comes along. When you’re working in a large fashion company this is when the Marketing and PR team take control. There’s usually a team of people who organise all the shoots, book the talent,…

My Best Tip for Working Mothers

My Best Tip for Working Mothers

I’ve always been a fiend when it comes to being organised.  I don’t know whether its an Aries thing, but the only way I could function as a full time working mother was to be organised to a standstill!  I found that the more organised I was, and the more routinised our working week, the better we all functioned and the happier we were as a family. My Top Tip for Working Mothers During the School Term When my son was in primary school and a really picky eater, at the…

Desk Drawer Best Friends

Even though our fabulous business bags for women are full of pockets for things you can’t live without as you go through your busy day, over the years I have realized there are a couple of things that I don’t want to carry around but can’t live without in my office drawers as well. My desk draw essentials are: 1. Perfume. Don’t use it all the time as I always splash some on when I’m getting dressed in the mornings but there are always those days when, due to a man-made…

Why Mess Adds to Stress

Why Mess Adds to Stress

Have you been feeling more stressed at work lately? Want to feel more in control? The remedy may be as simple as de-cluttering your workspace. Psychologist Sherrie Bourg Carter, in her book ‘High Octane Women: How super achievers can avoid burnout’ believes that messy work spaces can contribute to us feeling anxious, helpless and overwhelmed. Her reasons are: Clutter causes our senses to work overtime and draws our attention away from the task at hand. A messy desk tells us subconsciously that we’ve still got lots of work to do. THE GOOD NEWS IS: This is…
