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.

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
