The kind people at Knack sent me this bag to try it out. It is a gorgeous bag, but I wasn't sure well-nigh it at first considering they did such a nice job concealing the zippers for philosophy that I had a nonflexible time remembering how to wangle my stuff:) Definitely user-error.

So I used it for a couple of months and folks, I love it and my daughter and I fight over who gets to use it (I win every time). It is stylish and sophisticated and it has one section for your palmtop and work and/or entertainment and then flipside expandable section for clothes.

This can fit under your seat and is perfect for an overnight merchantry trip or a weekend getaway if you can pack light. I've gotten several compliments on this bag when I travel.

But it's so light and I can hands throw it up into the bin. Yes, throw it considering that's how weak I am.

Selfie stick

Don't want to walk virtually with a selfie stick? Me neither. But sometimes, it's the only way that I get into a family picture or can take a steady shot at night. It moreover saves me from asking a stranger. I use this one considering it has a remote.
