My husband gives the bestest gifts

I just want to share my favorite new thing. Well, it's not so new since Vince bought it for me soon after our second wedding anniversary. But I just had to share because it's super hotness!

I said I wanted a pink netbook, right? Then I ended up buying a little black beauty a few months ago:
Me and my HP Mini when it was fresh from the box

Well, with my darling baby needing protection, I needed a laptop case. I looked and looked and everything was either too big or too small (the HP Mini's screen is wider than most netbooks). And must all laptop sleeves look so horrid? So as Vince and I wandered into a luggage store, this little cutie called to me.
Isn't she pretty? It's a Samsonite Black Label Signat Mini Attache. It's pink. I'm sooo happy! Vince thinks it's so retro cool. And it actually is retro--this is a re-issue of the 1965 design. I learned that from the little leather label here (sorry, my photos are terrible!):
Because it's Samsonite, we didn't think we could afford it. The original price was PHP 11,390 (USD 238) but--wonder of wonders, it was on sale! It was sold for a huge discount--Vince got this pretty pink sweetheart for just PHP 3,970 (USD 83). Unbelievable. Sold!

Ah! Look at that! It's like it was made for my HP Mini! And it has a little compartment for the charger and pockets for my USB sticks and little odds-and-ends. Love it! Thanks, Vince!

  4. Grabe super mahal naman ng laptop case mo! Well, for me. But I must say it's fab, Frances! Especially the little pockets to put in the trinkets. Cool!

    I need one for my "little white beauty" also. But I need to save, save, save!

    Happy week!

  9. That's so cool! Kind of reminded me of my dad's attache case, although his was brown. It's also very old, older than me probably (I'm 23!) because I remembered it was the only attache case I ever saw him with. It's amazing how you come across wonderful things on sale. :)

  15. That is the prettiest thing I have ever seen in my life! I know how hard it is to look for the perfect laptop bag (it took me a full month), so I definitely appreciate what a find this is. In fact, this is making me seriously consider replacing my one-week-old Sumdex bag. I wonder if they do this in a size that fits a Macbook Pro? Hmmmm...
