I’m so in Love…

with this handbag, that is. It’s Namaste’s Zuma and I love it!

My Namaste Zuma Bag

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not a Material Girl.  Expensive Handbags are not for me.  And this was a steal! If you follow my tweets (I’m iKnit2Purl2 on Twitter), you might have seen a tweet last Sunday mentioning a  50% Off Namste Sale by Little Knits .  What a deal!  I was so excited that I had to share it with everyone!

So what do I love about my new handbag? Well, first, I love the size…I have several large, not huge but large handbags, that get a little heavy and a little cumbersome.  Zuma is a little smaller at roughly 9″ W by 11″ H with a 17″ Base.  And its lightweight which is perfect since I tote a knitting bag along with a handbag about half the time. Open it up and there’s plenty of room for stuff.  Plus 2 zipper compartments on the outside.  I love this feature as I can stuff my keys and phone into one compartment for easy access.  It closes on top with three magnets.  Usually, I prefer zip tops but the 3 magnets (one of which snaps) seem to prevent the contents from falling out as I throw my purse in the backseat of the car or beside me on the passenger seat.  A regular occurence as I pick up and drop off kiddos at school and other activities.

I’m already thinking about which color Zuma to get for summer!
