Ok, its a bit quiet here so I'm going to try practice uploading photos of bags you ladies have probably seen before all my new goodies arrive! Bear with me, I'm totally techy useless.

If I'm successful, the first image should be of my Tan Matte Hold Me.

Another pic of the Tan Hold Me. I love this bag. When it first arrived (it was my second BE), I went out for a meal with my husband and eventually he leaned across the table and asked me "Why do you keep clutching that bag to yourself and squeezing it?"

I love the simple design, I love how it smooshes down and I love how much I can get into it.

Ok, so I loved it so much, I decided to dip my toe into BEC and create my first bespoke. I love the fuschia lining but I didn't want to have pink lining with black pebbled luxe, so I went with purple. I can't believe how the leather has broken in, the bag just puddles. Love it.

My BE love all started when I moved to England and saw a picture (of some brightly coloured Hold Me bags) in a magazine called Red. I went to the website and was browsing, thinking that "I'm not really a handbag person, shoes are more my thing". And then I saw THIS bag. It looked soft and slouchy but with a different shape and in a colour that just blew me away. My first BE..my SMM in Petrol Glossy (now sheen)

So, by now, visiting the BE site had become a habit, something I did for fun. And then I saw it...the Hug Me...in chocolate. I must admit, when this bag arrived, it was bigger than I thought it would be and I wasn't sure that I liked that. It can be heavy and I don't like the messenger strap it came with, but now that I've got used to carrying it in my hand, it's a keeper!

Haha, your comment about your husband cracked me up!

That is one beautiful family. I particularly like your black pebbled hold me...gorgeous. Am I right in thinking that hug me is the small (regular)? It is much bigger than I thought it would be - the photograph of it next your other bags puts the size in perspective.

Yes, the Hug Me is the small one, I don't think I could cope with the maxi!

Thanks so much for taking the time to show us your wonderful BE family. I really miss seeing what everyone has purchased. Is that HM in the old tan? It looks like it, but I wasn't sure. That petrol is also supposed to be big for fall according to "In Style" magazine. I can't wait to see your TMA Midi Cream Pebbled & Charm Me in Dark Grey Matte when they arrive.

ROTFL! That is priceless!
