Christmas Presents

When I shop for gifts for others, I always end up seeing something I want. And I just did. This year, I'm gonna get it for myself if nobody else does.

It's a backpack. I have two backpacks, one for everyday use and another for hiking. My daily pack, which I wear for just roaming around, is old and cheap. It could stand being replaced by something new and nice. I looked and looked and finally found a perfect one at Tumi (a store that makes excellent luggage). It's small but well-designed and looks good. The picture below doesn't really do it justice. In person, it exudes quality and sophistication. Like me!

What do you want for Christmas?


  1. I want chocolate! Ha! That is a lovely backpack, Ally.

  2. Happens to me all the time when I go shopping for gifts! That looks like a good quality bag. Can you ask Santa for it? xxx

  3. It's gorgeous!! I just got a little piggy backpack from Sparky's Toy Store, but I want a bit bigger leather one, as well.

  4. It looks good! I am hoping to move house for Christmas so I don't really want or need anything. However, I always love getting acrylic necklaces like Tatty Devine so if one of my relatives HAD to buy me something, I'd like one of those!!

  5. I love this backpack, perfect for one or two day trek/hike. I am crazy for hiking. i did many trek in last 2 years . I want to do more trek will be best gift for me.

  6. I am a big fan of Tumi! You did well to choose this as a gift to yourself, and as a concept I like that. Good to give to others , and also good to treat yourself.
    Enjoy the season!

  7. My whole family decided we are not doing any gifts this year, so no pressure on anyone! It's quite relaxing!
    That's a beautiful backpack, so classy!

  8. I have this problem myself :) I always end up shopping for myself, even when I know I shouldn't but well, we need to reward ourselves for our hard work every now and then, right? That's a beautiful backpack, Ally! Glad you are spoiling yourself--you deserve it!


  9. That back pack is gorgeous ... Just like you!!!!

  10. Very cool! I'm guilty of shopping for myself when Christmas shopping. I just want to be rid of this sinus trouble! That's what I want. (3 rounds of antibiotics and many miserable days).
