Blogmas Day 24: Christmas Eve Traditions & My New MCM Bag!

Hello lovelies! Merry Christmas Eve!! Time to really kick off the holiday festivities! Here at home, we will be preparing all day for Christmas Day which includes snacking on some hors d’oeuvres, wrapping the last of our gifts, listening to Christmas music, watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” at night, and opening our Christmas Eve gifts! It’s been a tradition in my family for so long that my sister and I get to open one present each on Christmas Eve. I’m not sure if this is something everyone in the world does, but it’s certainly part of the festivities in our home! I wanted to share what I got today, as it’s extremely special to me and I’ve never gotten a gift quite like this before.

This MCM backpack is one of the cutest little bags I’ve ever seen. It’s such a unique color and looks very mature. It’s a medium size, which means it will easily hold my wallet, some makeup, feminine products (if need be), and anything I else I would need when on the go!

You know this is one of the fanciest things you own when it comes with its own bag to keep it safe! I honestly love the bold and black logo on the front of this clean, white bag. It seriously makes me feel like a princess just letting it sit on my white sheets, lol! My mom actually found this bag at Nordstrom Rack, with a major discount! There’s nothing better than finding a nice bag on sale! It’s funny, I actually don’t know much about this MCM brand, which is weird considering I’ve worked seasonally at Nordstrom for a few years now. I’m going to do some research soon, but if you guys know anything about it, let me know in the comments!

The outside is gorgeous with the two toned stripes, diamonds, and MCM logo scattered throughout, but the inside had me as equally head over heels. It’s not super clear in this photo, but the inside is entirely black, with the same black logo placed throughout. It has nude detailing inside, which pairs perfectly with the all black interior. Also, the gold detailing of the zipper and buckles is just to die for and is the perfect match against the nude and black.

Again, the little gold detailing is brought out in the front with the square medallion. This is one of my favorite parts, it really makes it look official and has a “no funny business” type of vibe, haha! Lastly, the straps are the perfect size and are very comfortable when you’re wearing it. It also has a handle if you’d like to carry it around that way.

I honestly can’t wait to use this bag, it really is perfect and totally my taste. If I ever take a Europe trip or do any sort of traveling for that matter, I know this will be the best carry on bag! It’s not too small since it will still hold my wallet and a passport, but not too big and bulky to the point that I’m being weighed down. Let me know what you think of this or if you’re looking into any high end bags this Christmas! Thank you again to my mom for getting me such a thoughtful and gracious gift, I love you! You all can check out her Instagram here, she posts some incredible interior design photos as well as some healthy recipes and food hauls! Talk to you guys tomorrow for our last day of Blogmas!!!
