Camera Bag?? for DSLR

My worst habit is forgetting my camera...BUT of course Santa Paws is bringing me a DSLR for Xmas I can't forget it!!!
SO my plan is to have it all in a bag..just for lifting..one that I can stick a purse and phone in too..but one thats not "Handbaggy"...and one that doesn't scream "theres an expensive camera in here"..

So I have looked and decided I like the Lowepro Slingshot 100..
BUt my Mother dear is insisting she buys it for Xmas for me..

Now my Mum has been signed off work for the last 2 years with breast cancer..(she has been diagnosed twice!! so was off for around 10 months..then went back for a couple of months and was diagnosed again and has been off work since)..SOOO I am trying to find it as cheap as possible for her..(tried the "I will go halves but its not happening either!!!)
SO can anyone find it cheaper than 40 for me LOL

Not sure how it comapares to the one you looked at Louise but the one I have is like one of these (prob exact one actually):

Lowepro Rezo 160 Shoulder Bag For Digital SLR & 1-2 Lenses - Black
by Lowepro

Might be what you consider a handbag type though...but I think it is brill and look at how cheap you can get them for!!

Personally Id go for the shoulder type, but the backpack you showed is fine. I used to use a Lowepro, still have it, but with bigger lenses I needed a bigger bag, I have a blue National geographic one now.
