Kirrily Johnston and Special K joined forces to create this Limited Edition (50 only) two-tone hand made handbag made from soft calf leather in tan and Special K signature red suede, featuring gold hardware as well as a handcrafted zipper tassel and is valued at A$750.
Created as part of a promotion for Special K’s snack bars, a recent research poll around women’s snacking habits revealed that only one in five women actually carry a snack in their handbag, despite 96 per cent of women knowing that they will get the urge to snack during the day.
The survey also revealed that Australian women carry at least 2kgs of ‘daily essentials’ in their handbags (ridiculous aren’t we?), which most commonly includes their phone, house keys, car key and pens. Some of the more unique articles women confessed to carrying in their handbag included – teapots, a rabbit’s foot, pork ribs, screwdriver, shifter and pliers, bicycle pumps, hammers or even mineral lick for horses. Wow!
Even with her busy schedule, Kirrily Johnston knows how important it is to prepare for snacking as part of her routine:
“I know what it can be like, you rush from one appointment to the next, you’re flat off your feet and you literally don’t have time to prepare for when that afternoon snack craving hits” says Johnston.
“This bag and the snack pocket act as a stylish, physical reminder to pack a snack each day – to pop one in your bag just as you would with your keys or wallet. And if your bag is anything like mine, it’s full of all sorts of things, so I designed the pocket on the outside so that your Special K snack bar won’t get lost and is always within easy reach” says Johnston.
Me, I always carry around a small bag of mixed nuts so that if I’m caught on the hop, I have something healthy to snack on otherwise I’m tempted to purchase something not so good.
