Harris Tweed Laptop Rucksacks *sponsored post

Some of you may have read my profile, but in case you haven't, my lifestyle, or at least the 'work' part of it, revolves around freelance writing. Although a lot of the time I am in front of the laptop screen at home, I have been thinking recently about what I'd do if I decided on a change of scene, opted to try a co-working space, or just needed to take my laptop out with me for work.

Normally I just have to choose a bag from my collection that will fit my trusty notebook, pen, and camera in it, but if I needed my laptop with me, I'm not sure a normal rucksack would fit the bill. To me, my laptop needs to be safe and secure, and not bashing up against my other items as I walk out the house. If you're thinking along the same lines, then maybe the stylish backpacks on offer from City Backpacks will provide a solution.

City Backpacks are an online retailer, and the largest European stockist of a Korean backpack brand called 'The Earth'. The Earth have two different laptop friendly designs - the Harris Tweed Laptop Daypack, and the Harris Tweed Laptop Rucksack. Both combine leather, hard wearing canvas, cotton twill, and Harris Tweed, woven by islanders in the Outer Hebrides in their designs. What struck me about the items was their durable and practical nature. If I want to carry a laptop around I want something comfortable and hard wearing on my back, and it looks like The Earth have produced items catering for both those needs.

Both the laptop day pack, and laptop rucksack come in blue or brown colour schemes, and each has slightly different features, so you can choose one to suit your needs, whether you are looking for a college backpack or something to take to work.

My favourite of the two designs is the Harris Tweed Laptop Daypack, as I prefer all my pockets to be internal, and like the larger panel of Harris Tweed at the top. This design has a separate 15" laptop pocket, zip fastening around the top, and the signature padded shoulder straps and branded detailing. It looks like there is plenty of room for a laptop and all my other bits, but if you're looking for something a little bigger, with a couple of extra external pockets, then check out the Harris Tweed Laptop Rucksack.

City Backpacks also offer a range of urban backpacks, and other items to suit sports and outdoor use. The Harris Tweed Brand from The Earth illustrates this companies commitment to providing products using high quality materials that are built to last, and you'll find this is a common thread throughout all their products.

You can find out more about City Backpacks and The Earth on their website, and maybe discover you're own backpacker style.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
