In the midst of my current Outlander obsession (I’m currently reading Dragonfly in Amber), I have been on the hunt for all things Jamie Fraser with a Highland themed giveaway in mind featuring my lovely Mulderie Wood candles. During this search, I came across a wonderful Etsy page selling bookish and nerdy tote bags: Alohomora Design.
Main designer, Alli, from Southern California, has been interested in craft and design from a young age and has cultivated this passion into a full-time job. She has combined her interest in design with her favourite books, movies and television shows to create something magical! Plus she’s a super lovely person too which makes communicating your order really easy.
I’ve been lucky enough to sample five of the Outlander designs from Alohomora Design: “Take Me Home to Lallybroch”, “Your Face Is My Heart Sassenach And The Love Of You Is My Soul”, “Dinna Fash Sassenach”, “James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser” and “Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ!” I’m sure all of these will have every Outlander fan grinning. I can’t wait to share these totes with all of you Outlander lovers in my Instagram giveaway.
If Outlander isn’t your style, there are Game of Thrones totes, Sherlock Holmes totes, Parks & Rec, Harry Potter, The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory totes… The list is endless! Whatever your nerdy downfall is, Alohomora Design will have you covered with their diverse designs, I promise. One of my personal favourites is ‘When In Doubt Go To The Library’ from Miss Hermoine Granger herself. If you’re a wizard wannabe then there is a 20% off sale on all Harry Potter totes for the month of July to celebrate his birthday.
Each tote comes in a variety of sizes and colours. There are two tote styles: 15″ x 16″ or 15″ x 12″ with 4″ gusset (natural colour only). You can also choose from the following colour combos to suit your OOTD: natural tote with black ink, natural tote with gold ink, black tote with gold ink and navy tote with gold ink. I was lucky enough to sample all four and they’re all gorgeous.
Not only is the range of designs and quotes impeccable but the quality of these totes is very high too. They’re made from 100% cotton making them lightweight but strong enough to carry your books and laptop. They’re ideal for holding all your library books on your way home from school or University or simply for showing off your love of pop culture while you’re out shopping with friends.
If you’re looking for a tote-ally (yes, I went there) unique gift for your friend then these are perfect. You could even pair a geeky tote with one of the literary candles by Meraki Candles. Or, of course, you can treat yourself to something fun and original. Check out all Alohomora Design totes on their Etsy page. Keep up to date by following them on Instagram and Twitter too.
Remember these totes will be up for grabs in my next giveaway so to stay updated follow me on Instagram.
