I have to admit that I haven’t always been interested in handbags. When I was a teen I couldn’t live without one. I carried my whole life in my handbag.
When I became a mom my handbag was replaced with a diaper bag. I think we had just about everything in the diaper bag except the kitchen sink.
After many years of lugging around a diaper bag about as big as a piece of luggage I didn’t want to carry anything around with me after my kids were older and we retired the diaper bag. From that point on I have only used small purses, basically no bigger than a wristlet. As long as it fit my wallet, car keys and cellphone that was fine with me.
I returned to the workforce last summer. I found that I needed a bigger bag to hold things I might need at work like medicine for headaches, compact mirror, power cord to charge my phone, snacks and more. From that point on I have been using bigger handbags. In fact I actually put my wristlet inside my handbag so that I can grab it and run into a store without having to take the whole handbag with me.
I have to admit that as time has gone by I have become more and more interested in handbags.
My most recent aquisition is a gorgeous handbag from the company Fricaine. Fricaine has a lovely portfolio of bags that are sure to interest many handbag lovers.

Fricaine sent me their Queen’s Hand Satchel to review. It’s truly very beautiful.
Here are some more details about this wonderful handbag.
- High quality, durable micro-fiber leather meshes with the body made from 100% cotton using special jacquard design and printing technology.
- This roomy, eye-catching handbag has a custom-made lining that contrasts perfectly with the exterior.
- All hardware is forged with real gold-plated material with anti-soul treatment and has no chance of corrosion.
- It has one card pocket, one interior cell phone pocket, one exterior pocket and one drop pocket.
- Comes with an adjustable and detachable strap.
- The pattern is vivid and the handbag is very comfortable to carry.
I have to admit that the orange color would not be my first choice. I tend to stick to darker colors, like black or dark brown – only because I worry that other colors won’t match my wardrobe. I have found that this bag is so colorful that it matches almost everything I wear.
This bag is roomy. There is more than enough room in this bag to carry all my essentials for work – and the some. I can carry my iPad mini, a book, charging cables for my iPad and cellphone, snacks, beauty and health products and still have room to spare.
I like that the bag offers you the option to either hold it in your hand or carry it from your shoulder with the strap. I prefer the shoulder but occasionally it’s easier for me to hold it in my hand. I like that flexibility.
Fricaine puts a lot of love and attention to detail with their bags. When mine arrived the metal pieces were all covered in plastic to protect them from getting any scratched on them during shipping.
There are even little “feet” on the bottom of the bag to protect it when you put it down.
The bag is exceptionally well made. I have been using it since it arrived several weeks ago and it’s still in great shape. There is no tearing, fraying or busted seams.
I’ve received a lot of compliments on my bag. Several people have asked me where I purchased it from. Even my teen daughter who is obsessed with bags (she has too many!) loves this bag and keeps asking me if she can have it. Ha! No happening. This wonderful bag is mine.
