Travel Chic With Gaston Luga | #anywherewithGL

Being forever on the go, I end up feeling like a bit of a pack mule with all the things I shove in my bag and I end up with a very sore back by the end of the day from all the weight I've been lugging around. I genuinely don't think I've used a backpack since I was in high school but with my bad back I've needed a better way to carry my stuff around so I was excited when the lovely folks at Gaston Luga sent me an email offering to send me one of their incredible backpacks to take with me on my travels and they've even kindly given me a discount code to share with you all!

Who is Gaston Luga?
Gaston Luga is a Swedish brand whose inspiration for their backpacks came from a French traveller who customised a backpack to feature functionality and style, all of their backpacks bridge that gap in the market for backpacks for men and women that not only look amazing but also are really functional whether you need it for every day, taking to work, for going on holiday or even going on long walks.

My Thoughts 
I decided to go for the Classy Mini backpack which is one of their smallest backpacks and is a miniature version of the Classy backpack. It's 30cmX20cmX7cm and with the mini you get the option to customise the vegan-friendly PU leather top flap with a choice of 3 different colours, black, burgundy or baby pink. With us being deeply in the throes of autumn and on the way to winter, I decided to go for the black Classy Mini backpack with the additional burgundy flap and for me, it's the perfect compliment to my A/W wardrobe. The PU leather wipes clean very easily and the canvas part of the backpack is water-resistant so it can resist the beginnings of the usual English downpours we get. 

When empty I found it very lightweight and I even put it to the test of being completely full and even both ways I found it very lightweight and I could wear it all day without my back getting sore which is a major feat for someone with a chronically bad back! Being quite petite I found the size of the Classy Mini perfect for me as it didn't seem to overwhelm me or make me look like a child walking to school (I am legit that short that if the backpack is too big, it does make me look like a child). I was surprised with how much room there actually was inside the backpack considering it's a miniature version, inside is a beautiful burgundy colour with a padded pocket at the back which could fit an A5 notebook or a small iPad inside, in front of that it also has a thinner pocket that you can fit smaller things like a card wallet or a lip product inside. The rest of the bag is just an open pocket that I usually keep a couple of things in, mainly a brolly (a must with the English weather at the minute!), my inhaler and EpiPen (again absolutely musts), and a couple of lip products.

I'm really impressed with the Classy Mini, it had enough space for everything I need for a day in the city and I even used on a weekend walk with the family and it kept everything I needed for the day including a couple of snacks. I loved that the straps didn't dig into my shoulder even when the bag was completely full and they didn't budge from my shoulders which was perfect when I was out walking through the forest with my family. If the Classy Mini isn't your style, there are also 6 other designs on their website that I think are actually pretty unisex so there is a design for everyone! 

The lovely folks at Gaston Luga have given me a personalised discount code (DLBLOG15) to share with you all for any products from their store. From now until the 13th November instead of getting 15% off with my discount code, they are running a Singles Day offer for 25% off everything in store. Be sure to let me know if you pick anything up!
