Leather wallets review

This week I received some leather wallets from a brand called Kinzd to get acquainted with, they are colorful leather wallets that are compact pieces, which is great for who love to wear small bags, but also to who carries a thousand things and any free space is a bonus on your bag, right?

What I find most practical in small wallets is that, besides that they do not take up much space in your handbag, it is easy when changing the bag. When I’m with a large wallet, every time I decide to go out with a small purse, I have to change my wallet as well to fit in the small purse.

 

• Leather Wallets:

Leather Wallet from Kinzd

I have received two models of Kinzd leather wallets and a makeup bag to review, the brand was created in 2012, trying to bring us genuine leather wallets at affordable prices, with worldwide delivery.

I received this model of a small leather wallet and another colored one slightly larger, but also very compact. The workmanship is well made and the leather appeared to be of a good quality, it is a stiffer kind of leather.

Take a look on how this wallet is inside:

It has enough space for cards, space for money and inside the zipper part, it also has divisions for cards. I had put some cards inside the zip that did not fit in the front part and also some coins.

This leather wallet is made with a system called Blocking RFID, which blocks wifi readers and protects the information of those who have contactless cards. These cards make payments without needing the password by just touching the payment reader, I’m not sure how popular they are in other parts of the world, but here in Italy there are some banks that have contactless cards and you can make small payments with them, just by getting your card closer to the machine.

I ran a test with this wallet and the material actually blocked access to the cards.

About the size: Italian ID is a little bigger than this wallet, so it was left with a few centimeters out of the wallet.

 

The other model I had received from their women’s leather wallet collection was this other one, a very colorful one:

This model is very compact one: it has a zipper to put your money and coins, or, the money can also be placed in the long spaces just above the cards’ space.

A very colorful leather wallet for those who like more cheerful and fun pieces, but still in an elegant way.

In addition to the spaces in the front, this wallet also has a zippered space in the back:

• Makeup bag:

This makeup bag is made in another material, it is made in nylon. It’s a small makeup bag, but it can fit some more essential brushes and makeup, it’s small to carry in your handbag to make touch-ups on your makeup during the day or for taking it on weekend or short-duration trips.

It also has a small zipper inside, in which you can put small accessories.

Known as one of the most famous and unbelievable beautiful place to travel in the world is Cinque Terre on the Italian coast. As the italian translation says they are “Five Lands”, that means they are five different villages that are named: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.

Cappadocia is one of the most touristic regions of Turkey, the region is famous for its geological formations resulting from volcanic phenomena and erosion, underground cities, churches and houses excavated on the rocks are a major tourist attraction of this unbelievable place to travel.

The balloon rides are super famous there, as you can seem on the last photo. Another “tourist attraction” is to see the sunrise overlooking Cappadocia or even the sunset if you are not willing to wake up so early, quite worth it if you ask me, I mean, how many chances will you have to see the sunrise in Cappadocia if you do not live there? Please take the opportunity.
