I had a chance to drop in for the Breast Cancer Fundraiser that was hosted by Women’s Society and Development Club on Sunday, and here are some photos I took from the event. It was so much fun and very well organized.

Spotted a few Fyunka totes from Impression Boutique.

If these traits applies to you, then read on!

I previously posted about the amazing Alaa Balkhy‘s illustrations. She’s taking it one step further by creating Fyunka (Arabic of bow – how cute is that word?), a tote line featuring her illustrations of translated quotes from popular culture.

Totes are amazing because they can fit ALL of your stuff, especially for college, I always have a tote bag on me to carry my laptop, books and school supplies. Fyunka makes practicality UBER CUTE!
