Autumn is almost here. The leaves are falling off the trees, there’s a faint dew in the morning air and the sun is casting long shadows as it sets earlier and earlier. Shops are offering generous discounts as new season stock floods the high street. We’re ready for the new season, but the weather doesn’t seem to be just yet. Autumn is just around the corner, autumn is teasing us. 
 
I, for one, simply cannot wait. Nor am I prepared to wait. As September draws to a close, I’ve decided to break into my autumn wardrobe. Starting with this wood grain effect tote bag from the fabulous Amanda of Two Tickets. As a teacher, I’m always carrying things to and from school: exercise books, paperwork, text books…you name it. When Amanda said I could choose anything from her range, I knew it was this classic tote that I would be taken with. 


Isn’t it a beauty? The bag is a perfect autumnal shade and contrasts with most of my dresses. The handles are made from the softest leather and even when carrying heavy goods, it doesn’t dig into my shoulders. What I simply adore is the Two Tickets emblem, it’s classy and retro. 

Who is the brains behind Two Tickets? Amanda Schwartz, a New York designer of luxury leather goods and accessories for the urban woman. Her vision started with a toaster, a mid-century rocking chair and a leather backpack. Sounds crazy, right?

Amanda is a woman on a mission! A woman trying to raise money for her first handbag order. You can support her by pledging from as a little as $1, to higher amounts. In return for backing her project with $12 or more, Amanda will gift you with certain goods. 

A huge thank you to Amanda for gifting me with such an amazing bag. A bag I’m sure will last for years to come! You can also find Amanda and her creations over on Instagram, hands off the moon phase scarf! It’s mine…in the future. 

Are you a fan of the classic tote?
Are you excited for autumn?
 
As always, much love,
