She {hearts} Gigi Hill Bags

If your New Year’s Resolution is to be more organized, you’re going to love today’s review and giveaway from Gigi Hill Bags!  Gigi Hill was started by two moms who realized there was a need for fabulous and functional purses and tote bags for busy women.  They created a line of durable, stylish bags with some awesome features!

I love the signature pocket design found in the bags (such as the Audrey, pictured to the left), which is a complete pocket system which wraps around the inside of the bag.  There are bottle holders (water or baby), pen holders, a cell phone pocket, a pocket that zips, and more.  Another great feature on Gigi Hill bags is the key fob, located conveniently inside each bag.  Simply clip your keys to the loop and you’ll never be digging around in the bottom of your purse for your keys again!  Seriously, I can’t even tell you how great this feature is.

I also love my new Olivia bag (pictured at right).  I get compliments on it from everyone!  The inside and outside of this bag are both wipeable so that I can keep stickiness and dirt (I’m a mom of a toddler!) at bay.  The hardware on this bag is beautiful and I love carrying it everywhere, from church to appointments to the grocery store.  It’s just the right size for holding what I need, and while it has a great shoulder strap, there is also a longer strap that can be attached for wearing the bag different ways.

Inside my Olivia bag I keep my Rita wallet (pictured below).  I feel so grown up having a big, zip-around wallet like this!  It holds everything, from cash, gift cards, and change, to a few coupons, my grocery list, and receipts.  This wallet looks fabulous on its own, so if I need to run into the store really quick I can just take Rita with me!  This is the essential organizing tool for your purse, keeping paper, change, and clutter from crowding your purse.

As you can tell, I’m just a little bit enamored with Gigi Hill bags!

She {hearts} The Nicole Lee Alana Tote

016 Big, pretty, bags are my absolute weakness, so when Nicole Lee offered send me one of their newest bags, I just had to accept. Had to. They sent me the Camel Alana Tote, and ladies is it gorgeous! It measures 16.50″ x 10.50″ x 7.75″, making it a great bag for everyday items, gadgets, camera equipment, and baby/kids items!

Right now, my Alana tote is about halfway full. If I’m carrying my DSLR camera and flash, they both can fit in there comfortably in addition to my everyday items such as my wallet, beauty items, keys, phone, point-and-shoot camera, coupon file, and anything I’m carrying around for Jayden. I’d say it’s overnight bag status.


There are actually many different styles and colors in the Alana collection. Each bag in the Alana collection are designed with a faux suede exterior with rainbow basket weave under lining, and satin signature inner lining. The Alana tote features silver round studs and side buckles with an interior wall pocket on the back of the tote and interior slip pockets for cellphone, pens and accessories. The Alana tote is an exceptional bag that I am totally diggin’. I am very pleased with it and can’t wait to order a few more bags from Nicole Lee later this week!

She {hearts} Got a Bag

got a bag


If you’re a mommy to a little cutie under the age of two, you probably carry a larger-than-life size bag with you everywhere, and reserve your smallish girly bags for date nights with the hubby or night-out with the girls. That would be me. But lately I made it a promise to myself to not only sport the cute purse when I don’t have my baby with me, but to also take my affection starved fancy high heels out for a spin.  Yes, some of them are even dusty. Who has time to dust high heels? Not this mommy! Oh and btw, doctor office visits for yourself are a reason to dress up.  They mean you’re taking care of you, and I don’t know what better thing you can do for the ones you love, than to take care of yourself.  So celebrate!


But let’s be honest, probably twenty seven days out of a month you’re gonna need that larger than life bag for the diapers, wipes, squirtable fruit, sling, etc…

Tina at Got a Bag on Etsy has ya covered! She is so creative and has made such a wide variety of designs, none are exactly alike. She has some large bags perfect for the “mommy purse,” and then my favorite Less is more clutch for when you get to sneak away to refresh.

Tina from Got a Bag makes one-of-a-kind bags that are truly unique. You can tell from the workmanship and quality in the seams that she knows what she’s doing and does it well.

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.
