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!

This bag looks fantastic! I've never tried the Namaste handbags, but I have a few of their little notions & needles cases, which hold up incredibly well. Then again, I just got a Tom Bihn knitting bag for Christmas, and I think I'm in love. :)

Namaste products really are gorgeous. I'm a Laguna girl myself. Current count is four. I think. Enjoy!
