Everything you need to know about vegan handbags

Posted on May 5, 2021 at 1:32 pm


We all love a handbag for travelling. A chic satchel, a tote that’s big enough to carry everything, from your passport to your sunglasses and camera! But what if you were vegan? What if you were forgoing animal leather in favour of cruelty-free versions made from faux leather or vegan materials such as canvas and plastic?

You’d still want a handbag that was cool, durable and comfortable. Fortunately, vegan leather is that it is much lighter than animal leather. It’s also much stronger than it looks. So, if you’re looking for a handbag that ticks all the boxes and is cruelty-free as well as being ethically sourced – read on!

Has fashion missed the vegan boat?

No way. With clothing brands making headlines by adding animal-friendly lines to their collections in recent seasons, it seems that fashion has cottoned onto the fact that there are more vegans in 2015 than ever before (around 5% of people in the UK). But what about accessories? Well, it seems that fashion hasn’t caught up just yet, but we think this is only a matter of time.

Vegan handbags are booming right now. This has to do with the fact that more and more people are considering whether or not their choice of accessories are cruelty-free. This means a growing demand for vegan handbags, especially those which resemble luxury classic brands. How can you choose a good looking leather alternative? Which one looks best?

Research, research and research!

Buying the right vegan handbag takes time. Make sure the brand you are buying from has the eco-friendly and cruelty-free credentials that you expect. The good thing is that nowadays a lot of vegan brands are gaining popularity, so you don’t have to worry about them going out of style or becoming outdated.

Another thing worth considering is the quality of material used for your vegan handbag. Cheap options might look cheap and fall apart easily. It’s always better to pay more for a high-quality handmade bag (if you can afford it) than invest in something low-quality that will probably break down and wear off after a few months. After all, this is an investment piece, right? And there are plenty of ethical designers out there who can give you ideas for what kind of vegan handbag would go well with your own personal style.

Will vegan leather go out of style?

Absolutely not. Vegan leather is here to stay. It looks and feels just like real leather yet it’s strong and durable too — when you buy from a top-quality brand. Vegan handbags are a fine example of how useful vegan leather is.

Thanks to technology, synthetic fibres are more like the real thing than ever before. And they come in a variety of high-quality textures and colours that are practically indistinguishable from animal products — at least until you touch them and feel their softness. And yet, there’s one big difference: vegan leather is free of cruelty. It doesn’t involve using or abusing animals. In fact, it may be kinder for our planet too since fake leather isn’t as harmful to the environment as living beings! Can you believe it? No animals were harmed in the making of your precious new handbag. Isn’t that amazing?!

Van conversions are becoming increasingly popular, especially through the lockdown which the whole world has been placed under recently. With people turning to creativity and the most popular choice being a van conversion. Making a van into a mobile home, perfect for road trips anywhere and everywhere.

Somewhere To Wash
When converting a van, people always remember that they’ll need a bed. But they always forget that they will need somewhere to wash. Not only wash yourself, but wash any dishes and cutlery that you use. You should have at least one sink installed in your van to ensure you have somewhere to wash dishes and brush your teeth daily. You should also have some form of shower that you can use to wash yourself. Whether this is an entire cubicle, or an attachment for your sink for you to shower outside.

Endless Storage!
Coverting a van into more of a campervan is an exciting time. But you will ofcourse see that the amount of storage space you have once a bed, toilet and kitchen area is fitted gets massively less. During your whole van conversion you need to think on your toes of ways you can create more storage. Fro example, have a hollow area under your bed where you can store items. Cupboards up above where you wouldn’t be putting anything else. At the front of your mind, always be thinking about storage with everything you do.

Coverting a van into a campervan can be extremely exciting yet still stress. These are two of the main essentials which people always forget to consider. So make sure if you are completing a van conversion to include somewhere to wash as well as an ample amount of storage!

The Top Reasons To Use Self-Storage Facilities

Posted on October 30, 2020 at 12:27 pm

We often talk about gap years and long periods of travel on our blog, however, one aspect that must be considered is self storage, especially if you’re looking to secure your valuables, so they are safe and sound when you return from your adventure. Self storage is a fine choice for travellers because it’s much cheaper than continuing to rent your property, and you will have a dedicated team to rely on should any incident occur whilst you’re away.

Of course, self storage is so much more useful than holding goods for travellers. It’s not unusual to have more items than you have space. Many people simply can’t store everything they own in their own home. If you need more storage space, you’ll want to look at some of the top reasons to use self-storage facilities. Having access to storage space could benefit you in a number of ways.

You’ll Have A Way To Store Seasonal Items

It’s likely that you own a number of items that you don’t use all year long. As an example, you may have decorations that you only hang during the holidays. These kinds of items can be nice to have, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want them to be taking up space in your home all year long.

Self-storage facilities are the ideal solution when you’re in a position like this. When you have a storage unit, you’ll be able to keep these items safely secured when they’re not in use. You can enjoy seasonal items without crowding your home.

You’ll Have Less Clutter In Your Home

If you look at pictures of homes in magazines, you’ll notice that these properties are rarely cluttered. Living in a clutter-free space can greatly enhance your home decor. A storage unit can help you to move a lot of your belongings out of your home, which means clutter will be less of an issue for you.

Having access to a storage unit can improve the overall appearance of your home. It’s an excellent option if you plan to move house in the near future, but a storage unit can also be an excellent option if you don’t have any moving plans on the horizon. Let’s say you need self storage Olney, then perhaps you should consider looking at all of the facilities in your local area and request quotes — most suppliers can turn around quick quotations, often within 24 hours.

It’s A Great Way To Downsize

If you’re thinking about downsizing, a self-storage unit could be the solution to a lot of your problems. If you’re able to store a lot of your belongings, you’ll be able to live in a much smaller space.

If you feel as though you couldn’t move into a smaller place because you have too many things that need to be stored, you should look into storage. You can store plenty of items in a storage unit and move into a smaller place that meets your current needs.

As you can see, there are many compelling reasons to use self-storage facilities. If you have more things than you have space for, start looking for solutions. A storage unit could be exactly what you need.

Unusual Places To Visit Around The World

Posted on October 18, 2020 at 4:43 pm

The world is a wonderful place, but what unusual places have been created for us to visit? Which of these places will you visit?

Thor’s Well, Oregano
Based on the coast line on Captain Cook Trail, Thor’s well is outstanding. Especially in rough weather conditions. You will see the surf being sucked into a giant sinkhole. Making for some amazing photographs.

Lake Hillier, Western Australia
One of my personal favourite unusual places where I would love to travel to is Lake Hillier. What is more unusual than visiting a lake which isn’t normal water colour. This lake is pink! Scientists say it’s from algae found in the lake. However, this doesn’t make it any less impressive.

Red Beach, Panjin China
This is simply a beach which is red. It is extraordinary to look at and photography. The reason why this beach is red is because it covered in seaweed called Sueda which turns bright red.
