New Favorite Sling Bag + Hedgren 2018 Fall Collection

I always try so hard to bring a smaller bag. but I always end up bringing a bigger bag than I planned.  I always feel the need to bring everything essential (especially during travels) - tissue, wet ones, alcohol, powerbank, lip balm, etc. 

Now, I am committing to smaller bags with my new sling bag from the Hedgren 2018 Fall Collection.


The bag is made of nylon and parts of it are leather. It is very lightweight with an inside clip (for wallet) and side pocket outside. I love that I can fit all my "real essentials" in it and that it matches my camera color! I am excited to bring/use this in my next travel!

I cannot believe how I managed to bring big bags everyday or even during travel. Big bags totally dragged me - it gives me back pain and limits my movements. 

I know it is a betrayal to my tita commitment, but hey, I am still young, able and carefree; might as well enjoy my time and space (because really, less is more).

Hedgren is one of the few brands that make travel bags look stylish, chic and functional. The brand was established in in Belgium in 1993 and lives through its philosophy to create bags that bear a distinct functionality that serves the evolving needs of times without compromising the elements of style. 

The Hedgren 2018 Fall Collection

I got the chance to attend the exclusive Hedgren 2018 Fall Collection and I fell in love with every pieces from the collection.

The Prisma Collectin

The Prisma Collection embodies Hedgren's timeless aesthetics and functionality with its luxe elements. 

I love the Spectral Bag with detachable strap. It is just perfectly sized (not too small or big) - and is fit for working woman who is always on-the-go. Cuboid on the other hand is a bucket bag which has a perfect mix of functionality and style with its luxurious gold and split leather trims combined with Hedgren’s signature lightweight and water repellent nylon.   I think this is the kind of bag that I would get for my everyday errands and events.

The Charm Collection

The Charm Collection is perfect for women who means business. I love its functionality and timeless look. 

The Appeal Handbag is business bag is wrapped in an elegant exterior with a spacious main compartment, padded laptop pocket and multiple pockets for organization and is made of lightweight, water repellent material. I see myself using this bag for business meetings and client presentations.

The Aura Collection

I think Aura Collection is perfect for those who embraced a mobile lifestyle. It is graceful yet formidable to the harshness of daily commute and travels. 

Take for example this Source Crossover Bag with its water-repellent fabric, modern lightweight design, wide main opening, and RFID protective feature. It is roomy and practical with the essential pockets.

While this Sheen Backpack is an elevated take on the ordinary backpack. Lightweight, water-repellent, and compact, the bag hosts an impressive list of other features such as a discrete back pocket for valuable items, RFID protection, and a cute and convenient key chain
