I was recently sent a backpack from Beara Beara, a British genuine leather bag brand. Though I love designer bags, I am also an avid fan of indie bag brands as they often come with a friendly price tag and high-grade quality. My indie bag collection ranges from South Korean, Thai, Malaysian labels and now this handsome chap all the way from London. I have been using this bag for about two weeks now and brought it along with me to my recent trip in Macau. So today I am sharing a bit about this beautiful and functional backpack that I absolutely adore, and how I usually pack when I travel.
Beara Beara is a responsible brand that upholds quality, style and humanity. What caught my eyes are their gorgeous design and luscious leather. I got their classic and bestselling backpack Mya in Brown. Initially, I was torn in between the Tan and the Brown as both colours are equally gorgeous. I picked the brown in the end as I feel it matches better with my entire wardrobe. Depending on the light, you may see black cherry or rich dark chocolate, which is absolutely gorgeous.

I couldn’t get over the detail and quality of the bag. It is made of full soft leather, with an extremely sturdy frame. It measures 24cm x 31cm x 14cm, and fits my new Macbook Air perfectly. I love the secret zip pocket at the back which is the best pocket for passport and credit cards. It also has a zipped pocket inside and features a small pocket on the front with buckles.

I love to travel. And when I travel, I do my best to make sure I look good and feel comfortable, which could be a struggle even to avid travellers. But this backpack has been a game-changer. The design and functionality are well executed while keeping that vintage British style alive. I matched it with casual dresses, tees and jeans, and even smart casual for business. The best thing? A (stylish) backpack keeps my hands free! Which is great when we are transiting at the airport, or exploring a new city.

What’s In My Bag When I Travel:
I must say the size of the bag is not big. However, I have yet to feel that I need an upsize at my recent trip. It fits in my MacBook Air, wallet, a water tumbler, a book, my sunnies and even a thin cardigan. Not all items are captured in my photo here but here are my travel essentials I can’t travel without:
SUQQU Flawless Lipgloss 02 | This has become my favourite lippy this year. I suffered from cracking lip early this year and could not apply any lip products as they often resulted in a sharp pain at my lips except SUQQU. My lips feel hydrated and plump after one application and I am sold.
Giorgio Armani Essence-in-Foundation Cushion| Lightweight, amazing cover and dewy finish, perfect for my schedule.
Medication & Eyedrop | Axe Universal Oil (for the uninitiated, this is one quirky item most South-East Asian would have in our bag.) For all unpleasant moment from headache, nausea to a runny nose. Daily disposable contact lens, make up remover wipes, eyedrop etc.
SEABAND | A band to wear on each wrist to relieving nausea, travel and motion sickness by exerting pressure on the acupressure point (Nei-Kuan Point). I really recommend this as it works well on me and I can go drug-free!
MacBook Air | For work and connecting with the world.
Water Tumbler | I always make sure I carry a Thermo bottle with me whenever I travel. Age is catching up?
