My office at home is my sanctuary. I spend a ton of time at my desk and usually get my best work done there. However, there’s times that I need to get out of my house and see humans. Working for yourself and by yourself, isn’t always easy in that sense. I try to get out of the house every so often and meet up with Cathy or Lauren. We like to grab lunch, catch up and get some work done to break up our at home routine. It’s a great way to stay in touch with one another, try new restaurants out and also get a new perspective on things.
When I head out, I used to use a giant backpack, the one I typically travel with since it is so big. But since I usually just bring along my computer, notebook, wallet and phone, I don’t really need such a giant bag. Plus, I would always have to put my computer in a laptop sleeve to keep it safe. Recently I upgraded my day to day “work” backpack, if you will, to the best backpack for a laptop. Say hello my new super sleek Samsonite Zalia Backpack. It’s the perfect size for the things I need in a regular office day. This particular day was spent at my new favorite spot, Upbeet!
I personally love that I don’t have to take my computer in and out of a sleeve anymore. The Samonsite Zalia Backpack compartments are padded and help to protect my computer without one. It also has space for my iPad should I want to bring that along too. In the other section of the backpack, I’m able to pop in my usual essentials like a wallet, my sunglasses, phone and so on. It’s got lots of pockets and sections to keep everything organized and in its place. It’s such a nice update from my oversized backpack that doesn’t really help protect my most expensive and essential tool for my business, my computer.
