Satchel inspired DIY Macbook cover

As a full time digital marketer and a part time blogger, my life revolves around my technology. When I’m not snapping photos on my SLR, I’m busy typing away on my laptop or reading emails on my phone. Sometimes, it’s quite nice to break the routine of sitting at my desk to work, so I’ve recently got into the habit of heading out to local coffee shops with my Macbook and spending a few hours working on blog posts there….
