Creating my own handbag with Toteteca

Hello everyone,

I was going through my archives, and found some pictures a few months back which I didn’t quite like it and chucked the idea of posting them. But now the reason for this post is only because I want to talk about this amazing brand called TOTETECA, who specialises in personally curated handbags. Yes! You heard it right, this online website makes that makes customised bags as per your needs. And when talking about customised bags, how many times have you found yourself in a situation, where you see another girl carrying the exact same handbag like yours in a party and all you wondered was wish, you had something that no one could ever own. Well, that’s exactly what Toteteca will take care of!

About Toteteca

Toteteca is a combination of two words, tote and teca. Tote is a type of handbag and teca literally means library in Latin.
Their goal is to create a ” bag library ” of sorts where people can select bags in any color and combination to create a bag that is truly unique.

On the Website:

Here is the demo video that explains the entire process from choosing your design and colour, to the payment and shipping process http://www.toteteca.com/demo.php. This will tell you exactly how you can get yourself a customised bag of your choice.

  • There is an exciting array of handbags available on the website from totes to suitcase bags, they have it all and  are designed to meet Casual as well as Formal needs.
  • Each of these bags gives you an option to customise in terms of the base colour of the bag, colour of the metal/hardware used, colour of the inside lining, type and metal of monogram.
  • The awesomest part is the MONOGRAM with the initials of your choice. That means, instead of flaunting a brand’s name on your bag, the bag will have your very own initials or maybe something else that you want on it!S
  • The other best part about Toteteca is, they only use FAUX LEATHER in making these bags, but the quality of the faux leather is of high durability which feels great to touch too.
  •  They ship not only to India, but INTERNATIONALLY too! The shipping to anywhere in India is FREE of cost. They have bags to customise from 20USD to 100USD, which is definitely not too much, given the fact that you get to customise your own handbag. This is definitely a website to try out if you are a handbag lover or hoarder like me 😀

My Experience:

Coming back to what I customised for myself, it’s a cranberry coloured bag with gun metal coloured trims. Given the fact that I literally carry my whole world in my bag, I wanted something that was big, yet looked great to carry with most of my outfits. It came with it’s own small coin such bag, which was so nice to have. The bag was shipped to me in a huge dust bag, which was really thoughtful of the Toteteca guys. This is a spacious and a sturdy looking handbag and has been doing great even after months of using it together. You can checkout the pictures to see how the bag looks like and how I’ve styled it with my wide-legged denims.

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

Hola,

A very happy new year to everyone who’s been a constant support to me and spare their time to visit this sweet little place of mine. It’s 2017- a year of new beginnings, new adventures and new people. 2016 were filled with loads of emotions; from being super happy to being almost depressed, it was definitely a roller coaster ride. But, I think that’s what makes you a stronger person. Right!

Some of the best things in my life happened in 2016, from collaborating with well-known brands and building a relationship with awesome PR companies to getting enrolled in one of the renowned universities in the world, I think it was all worth the struggle and hardships. I learnt so much about blogging in 2016 and made some really amazing blogger friends. I never really had much of girl friends and through blogging, I met some highly talented bloggers whose guidance and help have been one of the factors for the growth of That Trip-e Urban Life. the blog that was started with just me, now has so many lovely people associated with it and who has constantly helped me with covering events, contributing good reading substance and not to forget lots of love and appreciation.New year 2017

I lost my baby dog Pluto in 2016 and this was one of those moments where I didn’t know how to show my feelings. There’s not many people who understand the grief of losing a pet. Even more hurtful was the fact that I was miles away from him and couldn’t even bid my final goodbye to him. But I know he’s in a happy doggie place and watching us all. dsc_2030dsc_2075

 

I’m have high hopes from 2017 and expecting some positive results both professionally and personally. I want to get my masters degree real soon and work towards my dream job. Blogging is definitely my first love, but I’m not yet ready to give up everything and go back to full time blogging for many personal reasons. Well, we can discuss all about that maybe in a different post when the time comes. I’ve not really paid attention to my health in 2016, and will try to be healthier this year and start an exercise regime. I am aiming for a certain body goal this year and for that I need to stop my coffee obsession, which is really difficult for a person like me who’s been living on coffee day and night. LOL! But hell yeah! You gotta do what you gotta do, and that’s why coffee and a lot of other really horrible things needs to be kicked out of my life real soon.New year 2017

Well, this is my plan for 2017 and I am going to try my best to stick to these plans. They are nothing major, but I’m sure, they are going to add so much more to my life.
