In my last blog post I wrote about my love of bags, including tennis bags. After Idawen (the makers of my current tennis bag) read it, they were so pleased that another bag from their collection was on my wishlist, they sent me a new tennis bag as a present! My blog has been online for just under two months now and this was my first blog-related gift, so I thought the occasion deserved a blog post. I should probably point out that they didn’t ask me to write this post in return for the bag – I just wanted to share this moment with you and tell you more about my new bag!
When they contacted me about the gift, the designers at Idawen told me straight up that they didn’t think they should send me the Beach Hawaii bag that was on my wishlist.
‘You already have that model, you need to try out a different one!’ they said.
There are currently 5 models in the Idawen sports bag collection (Beach, Sam-XL, Bouza, Bocce and Wuivre), and I chose the Bouza Premium bag as I liked the fact that it wasn’t so obviously a tennis bag, and so I would also be able to use it to go to the gym or shopping.
I work from home, but I often carry my laptop around with me (I can frequently be seen at the hairdressers typing away on my computer whilst getting my hair dyed!) and so the fact it has an inner pocket that can support a laptop was an extra bonus. It is called a ‘Premium’ bag because it also comes with an extra waterproof inner bag (that you could use for trainers) and a power bank for your phone/tablet (that works with any digital device that can be charged with a USB interface). And a real bonus with all Idawen bags is that they are PETA-Approved Vegan, which means no animal was involved in their production.
There are three Bouza models: Navy, Pink Neon and Vintage and I immediately went for the decidedly flashy Pink Neon as I liked the contrast with the silver grey and black, and I knew it would match well many pieces in my current tennis wardrobe. I also tend to wear quite a lot of dark colours in the winter, and this bag will certainly help liven up my outfits. It is not a bag for people who don’t want to be noticed, but as an English girl living in a small town in Italy I already feel that I stick out a bit, so the odd extra stare is not going to bother me!
In addition to the new bag, they have also given me a discount coupon, worth 20% off an Idawen bag, to offer to my Instagram followers as part of a giveaway!
