Oh gosh!  I think I have recently become allergic to nickel too.  DD has always had the allergy and I thought I’d escaped it.

Earrings that I’ve worn without a problem before, now feel like hot pokers in my ears.  My ears swell up as well.  Putting in my good quality earrings and it immediately feels soothing.

I became allergic to earrings I’d worn for 10 years, but only after I’d become allergic to other things. I found the itch so bad, I had to put cortisone cream on my ears and use an ice pack. Even jewellery that is supposed to be nickel free sets me off, so when I went to get new everyday earrings, I went to an independent jeweller and had a long discussion about my needs. My new earrings are trouble-free.

I'm currently on the lookout for a bag to replace my current, much loved, Colorado black tote. It's 8 years old and the inside is looking really grubby now(was used since Dd was 2 so lots of toddler snacks and stuff went in it over the years, plus shopping!) and some of the gold isn't as gold as it should be, but it's the perfect size and I love Colorado's leather. 

None of them have long enough straps(I have fat arms and once you add a coat in winter it's impossible to put them on your shoulder) or they aren't real leather. I refuse to pay $240(DJ's I'm looking at you) for a fake leather bag.

I do have 2 smaller Colorado bags, one cross body(that looks stupid on me cross body, it's too big and sits weird on me with a thin strap)that I use as  shoulder bag, and one that is a shoulder bag but not quite big enough for my needs.

I haven't looked at TKmaxx, i might look one day. The ones I've been to here seem pretty crappy though.

It seems to be a luck thing, I must admit, because they don’t keep a steady range.

I shouldn’t have clicked on those Wanderer bag links.

Oh I know...the santorini was my first purchase, and I have since bought a small crossbody one for if I am out for dinner or something and don't need much, a tote, and a wallet. I do wait for their sales though, which seem to be after Christmas and midyear usually!

I rarely use a handbag these days. My back isn't great. I carry my phone, sometimes a myki card or car key, and thats it. Keyless entry to the house so no need for house keys. I have a little card purse for when I need my drivers license, medicare card etc, but I don't permanently carry them on me.

When I do need a bag, I like a crossbody bag. I have a leather one which I keep meaning to replace with a fabric bag as its quite heavy, which doesn't help with my back. I got it from Strand Bags, its lasted years now and when I was a stay at home mum it got a good workout. Barely sees the light of day now though.

For work, I cycle so I have my bike panniers, I just take one of them up to my desk. I keep a backpack at work for when I need to go across town during work with my laptop, or I just carry my laptop in my hands.
