Weekly Wishes #8 - Backpack Hunt Continues

Weekly Wishes is a link-up over at The Nectar Collective, where people share their goals and aspirations for the upcoming week, and discuss any challenges they may have faced. Feel free to check it out and link-up yours, too!


I missed last week's Weekly Wishes. Mostly because I failed my goal of buying a backpack.

I did look for one in several different stores. I even almost bought one! But I have been having a difficult time finding one that I really like. It has to be large enough to fit my laptop in, and all of my textbooks and it has to be good quality, pretty and an affordable price. I know that I will continue to use this bag well after college so I don't mind investing a bit of money into it, but I do have a budget of $100. I might even be willing to go over a bit if I really like a certain backpack.
The only backpacks I have managed to find are either - large, ugly and expensive or small but pretty, good quality and affordable. Either way, none of the backpacks I have come across met all of my standards. It's important to me to only buy things I absolutely love.
Since shopping in stores has proven to be pointless I will continue this goal and begin shopping online!
And perhaps I need to consider different options. If I can't find a backpack large enough for my laptop and my books, maybe I need to start looking for a separate laptop carrier. However, I really don't want to be juggling too many bags. Why is this so difficult?
Backpacks I am considering:
13" x 17" laptop bag/ Light-coffee Canvas-Leather Backpack/ Canvas backpack/Handmade bag/School bag

Super Large Genuine Leather Backpack / Travelling Bag / Camping Bag / Messenger Bag / Crossbody in Classic Black
HALLOWEEN SALE - Purple Canvas Women Backpack, Rucksack, Satchels, Messenger, Shoulder Bag, Tote, Hobo, School Bag - ESSENTI


I've been putting more effort into blogging and because of that, interesting opportunities are presenting themselves to me. I'm not going to elaborate on that statement until things are more finalized. However, I am really excited to be back to a regular blogging schedule and hope to keep it up!
Because I didn't manage to check off all of my goals from Weekly Wishes #7, I'm going to stick with them over the next week and I hope to have better news next Monday.

And I would love if I could get some feedbacks, comments or suggestions for my backpack dilemma! Only thing is, I want a backpack, not a messenger bag because it hurts my shoulder.

Did you manage to complete any goals lately? Tell me about it!

  1. Why does shopping for bags have to be so hard? I like the first one you're considering. Good luck with your wishes!

    1. Thanks! The first one is my favourite, too, I think.

  2. i love the 1st most too. Yeah.. it's always hard to find something that has both great function and form. my husband and i have been looking for a bag for over a year actually. if it's something you're gonna use regularly.. you just have to find the perfect one! :)

    1. Thanks! Glad to hear I'm not the only one who finds this difficult, I thought maybe I was being too picky.

  3. I LOVE the first backpack! Too cute! New follower from The Collective :)

    1. Hey, thanks for following! The first backpack seems to be many people's favourite... Really considering buying it!

  4. First off, I love your photo!

    Secondly, I am a fan of the middle bag. Leather always seems to last forever and I love the modern look of it. Plus, black goes with everything.

    I totally understand your bag dilemma. I've been looking for a bag since October of last year. I've found plenty that I like but none that I love. Like you, I refuse to spend a large sum of money on anything unless I truly LOOOOVE something. So, I continue to look. Hopefully you have better luck than I.

    I look forward to hearing what opportunities are presenting themselves to you!!

    1. Thanks!

      Yes, leather does seem to last forever! It seems like a great bag, I love all of the different pockets and how it opens right up. Although, it is the most expensive of the three, over my budget by a bit. Ha ha, oh no! I hope you're able to find something you like! I've been known to go without because I can't decide on what to buy.

      Thanks :)

  5. It's the most simplest of things, but buying bags is hard! I love the first one!
    Good luck :)


    1. Thank you! It does seem like it should be simple, which is why I'm getting so frustrated! Maybe it's difficult because it's like an accessory you wear every day, lol.


I truly enjoy reading all of your comments! I read every one of them, and do my best to reply to each of you!
