hashtag ‘life organised’, isn’t that the dream?
since leaving my old agency job in 2014 and starting to run my own company, i’ve been more on-the-go than ever. no longer confined to the office day-in day-out, i’m now running from meeting to meeting and working between coffee shops, our client’s workspaces, my home office and our shared co-working space, where we hot-desk.
this means continually touting my laptop all over town and although i have one of the lightest macbooks around, i’ve still found my shoulder aching terribly after a day spent schlepping across town and navigating the crowded city streets. i’ve been noticing more and more that this shoulder pain was affecting not only my mood but my sleep patterns, so decided that 2016 was the year to resolve this.
on the face of it, the solution was pretty obvious: switching from a overloaded shoulder bag to a backpack; what was less obvious was which backpack to go for. to be honest, i haven’t carried a backpack since i was 12 and the thought of them made me shudder – even though vogue may claim they’re back in style i’d not really spotted any that were both fashionable and practical, until knomo popped up on my radar!
