Dubai and Oman

As some of you may know, my day job sometimes takes me far and wide, I like to travel but when I go for work quite often it is on my own. This was my first trip to the Middle East; aside my brief layover in Doha on route to Hong Kong.
Dress ~ Orginal 50's vintage

My good friend Emma was in Duabi at the same time visiting family, so I was lucky enough to have dinner with them, we joke as it's hard to meet up at home due to everyone is busy and Emma lives in another county from me, yet we get to meet up so easily 7 hours from home!! Only us!

Nica - Satchel Review

What a lucky lady I am, those lovely people at Nica Bags kindly sent me their Alicia Satchel for me to try.

Now I love satchels, for me they are a staple in my daily outfits and it's nice to see one with a little difference.

My bag arrived with much grandeur, I was so excited to see the beautiful large box all neatly tied with a satin ribbon.

The first thing that striked me with this bag is the vintage styled embossed patten in the leather, then the pretty lining, but the jewel in its crown has to be that it has an abundance of pockets which all of the satchels I already own do not.

I tend to carry a lot in my bags, so they easily become a ground for chaos and the bag pocket was a prefect size for my ipad and the split compartments meant that my belongings weren't all swimming around together.

I travelled with this bag last week and the ease of having the twist lock at the front, adjustable strap and the zip pockets were of great advantage.
The back pocket is perfect size for my ipad that comes everywhere with me

Pockets and mobile phone compartment
Nica also do this satchel in black and other pretty printed variations you can see their range HERE 

Which one do you like best?
