She {hearts} Salt Water Canvas Beach Bags


IMG_9594copyHow many of you live near the beach? Or better yet, how many of you take a beach trip? Pool trip? Camping trip? Yet,how many of you have ever purchased a beach bag from your local shopping center, that is flimsy… never holds it shape or what you need for the day… and you find yourself fighting to keep it together more than anything!? ::raises hand::

With the beach less than 2 hours from us, I had to have a great beach bag.

Add the fact I have 3 kids to that, and it was really an essential for our trips.

I could not be more pleased with Salt Water Canvas beach bags. They are by far THE BEST beach bag I have ever used. This bag is so incredibly sturdy… It holds its shape perfectly and is so easy to keep clean and organized.

She {hearts} The Sweet Sugar Beet

Two years ago my hubby and I went on a 2 week road trip, sans kids.  It was awesome!  I got to meet Drea, swim in the ocean, hang out in Nashville, check out the capitol building in Washington, and best of all, hang out with my hubby!  One thing that I knew I needed was a great bag to carry all my hair/body care products.  So I searched Etsy and came across The Sweet Sugar Beet.  I purchased the extra large Cosmetic Bag, and it fit everything perfectly.

Then last year I finally got sick of having a way-too-small bag for all of my mineral makeup and brushes.  So I purchased another two bags from The Sweet Sugar Beet.  I use the large Cosmetic Bag to hold all the makeup/brushes I use on a daily basis.  This way I don’t have to dig through everything.  I use the medium Cosmetic Bag to hold all my extra eye shadows, lip glosses, eye liners, etc.  It’s a great system for me, and the bags are exactly what I needed.

She {hearts} Ore Day Tripper Totes.


I am a handbag-aholic!

Even before the whole What NOT to Wear thing happened I was obsessed with cute bags, purses, totes, anything with handles, designed to hold things you need while you’re out with a cute print on it would catch my eye.

And, as a mama to a whole mess of little people I’m always in need of a big bag.

The kind I can shove snacks and drinks into that can withstand a coupla of spills without making me want to disown someone.

That’s exactly how Ore caught my eye!

They have THE most adorable totes ever!

So many cute designs that are durable and roomy and fun.

Perfect for a Dude Mom on-the-go.

They sent me this Dia de Los Muertos Day Tripper tote last summer and I carried it everywhere.  Picnics at the park.  Days by the lake.  Shopping, library, everywhere!

And, tons of people compliment me on it regularly.

Definitely a must have for summer!

She {Hearts} Gussy Sews

I fell in {love} with the fabulous Gussy Sews about a month or two ago.  A friend of mine linked to her on Facebook, and I’ve been dreaming about Gussy’s ruffles ever since!  But it’s not just her fun style that has me hooked.  It’s Gussy herself!

“Hi there :] My name is Gussy — my husband and I live in Minneapolis with our puppy, Bauer. I write a blog ( and run handmade business (, both called Gussy Sews, and I spend my days balancing blogging about my journey as an Indie Biz owner and sewing ruffles/creating new product. This May is my 1 year anniversary working solely on Gussy Sews and I’m suuuuper excited to celebrate! The year has gone by so quickly — it makes me incredibly excited to dream about where I’ll be in just another year. “



I started reading Gussy’s blog around the same time I found her shop, and I’m all the more excited about supporting her because of it.  Gussy has worked super hard at making her dream job a successful business.  Gussy sews all of her products in her home, and each gorgeous bag comes complete with a flirty freestyle ruffle.  I just placed my first order a couple weeks ago, and I can’t wait to get my ruffles on!

She {Hearts} Jo Totes Camera Bags

Jo Totes are amazing bags in and of themselves, but they really are fantastic camera bags and so well priced. You can read my FULL REVIEW on the Jo Tote Camera bag here.

She {hearts} Baggu

I love me some reusable bags. I especially love them for grocery shopping, for the obvious waste reduction reasons but also because they are so much more comfortable to lug around and each bag typically holds more than their tiny plastic counter part. When I unload the car it’s with as little trips as possible.

My collection of miscellaneous bags was getting bulky, too bulky, taking up about a quarter of my cart. I needed change, I needed that cart space. Enter Baggu.

I love that each Baggu bags can smoosh down to almost nothing when not in use, but still packs a punch of being able to hold 50lbs, not to mention being machine washable. The X5 kit comes with a little drawstring pouch to keep them in and they fit back in there even after use. Even if it’s your husband that returned them to the pouch. Even if he just shoved them in- with no careful re-folding as you would have done. After using them for the first time my husband remarked how great these were. I have to agree, doing your part while being appealing to the eye and wallet!

Perfect for a trip to the grocery store, farmers market, library, take out food, or even a quick wrapping job, there is no end to what these little guys can do.

{heart} it

Baggu bags come in a variety of colors and start at just $8 a piece, or as low as $6.50 if you purchase 6 or more.
