Splurge vs. Save – Mini Leather Backpack

I’ve decided I need to start using a backpack again. Not only are they super stylish but they’re better for my back and neck. After travelling 18,000 miles over the Christmas holidays, I realised I can’t run through airports with an across-body bag laden with all sorts of junk.

I’ve been browsing the sales furiously and came across 2 similar and cool leather mini-backpacks. One for a fraction of the price as the other.
