I am sure most of you are built the same way. When you love an item so much, you wear it to pieces. Well, I really do hope I won’t wear this one to death but I have certainly been sporting this Nella Bella by Tarek Carina in light taupe every occasion I could. With enough room and such versatile design, this Nella Bella tote is just as perfect at the beach as it is for a weekend summer getaway!

In fact, I have, since getting this tote in the mail, brought this carry-all with me to a shopping date, an overnight stay at a hotel and recently, to a much-anticipated day of bliss and relaxation at one of North America’s most winnigest spas – the Nordik Spa Nature (review of Nordik coming up soon, stay tuned!). Seen here with a new maxi from Loft (a sweet and thoughtful gift from my friend, Toronto’s Top Beauty and Style Blogger Elaine of Toronto Beauty Reviews) that is quickly becoming a top fave, the Carina is just the right style and have the right size to carry all my spa essentials.



Made of vegan materials, the Nella Bella by Tarek collection is a Canadian brand, well-designed bags and fashion Accessories. They offer avariety of styles such as satchels, hobos, clutches, drawstring handbags, wallets, travel bags and I couldn’t be more excited for their newest Varsity Collection, just in time for Back to School Shopping.


As a long time fan of the brand, I can honestly say – Nella Bella Accessories & Handbags are both form and function – quality, style & utility combined. Each design is beautiful, trend setting, high quality collections that accentuate an individual’s sense of style. You may be surprised that these pieces are vegan, no leather involved in the production of the entire collection. Even E, who is a seasoned industrial designer and Engineer and have a great eye for detail, couldn’t believe that the Carina was not made from real leather.  As vegan products – the texture, the look and the durability of Nella Bella is absolutely remarkable.


If you follow us on TV whenever we make an appearance, you may also have seen the Nella Bella Carina, along with one of the brand’s top sellers – the London cross-over, at both our segments at Daytime Ottawa on Summer to Fall Fashion transition and at CTV Ottawa Morning Live on Top Trends for Fall Fashion. Even our @20YS Instagram account is full of snapshots of NB.



Don’t be surprised if you see more of these pretty Nella Bellas featured around here!

How about you, do you like fashion vegan products?
