The first and only backpack to the Damier Graphite Collection, Michael is lightweight and combines style and comfort. I find the shape interesting, its oblong-ish, really sleek in my opinion. It claims that it could carry a laptop but with its size (10.2" x 17.7" x 6.7"), I think netbooks are more likely to fit in. Michael is ideal for school, business or travel. It features two zipped pockets on the exterior, a foam padded computer pocket and a mobile phone pocket. Very functional I say. Available at Vuitton for $1530
This slim and practical computer sleeve is stylish and functional which features a double zipper closure and a foam-lined computer compartment embossed with the Louis Vuitton inventeur logo. The sleeve comes in two sizes: a 13-incher and a 15-incher. I'm really fond of this case but what bugs me is that it could only accommodate the laptop leaving behind important accessories like the power brick. Anyway, its available at Vuitton for approx. US$650 and US$700 for 13" and 15" respectively.
Damier Graphite Camera Bag
Another great addition to the Damier Graphite family is the Camera Bag. Its strong and protective, the bag could carry small and medium sized cameras and features lots of useful compartments for accessories. It can be carried by hand or on the shoulder, either way, it would look fabulous. Camera bag measures 8.6" x 15.3" x 9.4", available at Vuitton for approx. US$2250

JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THIS BABY!!!!!!!!
Ladies, have you been in relationships where the guy told you that you need too much? I have.
Fellas, I know, you have been in relationships where you felt that your girl needed too much from you?
Please try reading with an open mind. I am sure you will still jump down my throat and that is ok.
“You are too independent!,” you say
Like it’s a disease or an ailment
But I recall yesterday
When you said “you are too needy”
“You are way too emotional”
“I can’t always be there for you”
“I can’t do everything for you”
So I stepped back
I revaluated my stance
I started to evolve
I went took classes to better understand myself and finances
I began to trust myself
And as I began to grow
The chant in my head grew louder
“I think I can! I think I can!! I think can!!!
I paid my bills, bought me some clothes
Some shoes and a nice car
I realized I never really NEEDED you
But I WANTED you
I wanted you there for me
I could do these things by myself, FOR myself
So my confidence grew and GRew and GREW
You started noticing the changes
You said “Finally! Handle your business baby!”
But then I handled it too well
I did not call you every time things went wrong
And then you began to say “You are too independent!”
“You think you don’t need a man!”
“Why won’t you let me help you?”
Bottom line baby, I don’t NEED you
I got ME, I WANTED you but now I DO ME
It’s too late to be my knight in shining armor
You took the back seat when I wanted you in front
To protect my innocence
My eyes are now open to the world
And though I do not like its harshness
I have saved myself
I have made it
I AM an independent woman
My message to the Ladies? Sometimes YOU need to handle your business; your man should not take care of your EVERY need or want.
To the fellas? Try to PROTECT your woman the world can be dreadful and she does not need to know its EVERY torment!
To all: Find a balance, let your man save you once in a while and be your woman’s hero!
