Altego {Giveaway}

Surprise! You get a guest blogger today! My name is Braden, and I’m Camille’s little brother. I’m just a couple of semesters away from graduating with an engineering degree, and this summer I got an internship at MIT (hello, Boston!) Well, in my humble opinion, a new big internship is the perfect excuse to upgrade a young professional’s hardware, so I did.

I got the Altego Canvas Laptop Messenger Bag. At 15”, it fits my 14” ultrabook laptop quite comfortably.

My very first day taking the bag to work was quite rainy, but the coated canvas kept all my papers inside perfectly dry.

Zippered pockets on the outside and inside are great sizes for tablets, file folders, or headphones, while the top flap secures with the slightly more professional-looking self-locking twist knobs.IMG_0227

The back side of the case has a good quarter inch of padding, making it comfortable to wear on my back, and providing a bit of extra padding for the everyday wear and tear that a bag gets when it commutes along with you two hours every day!
IMG_0237I would like to make clear here that the girly fingers you see displaying the inside of the bag are not mine—Camille just helped with the photos! But as you can see in the picture here, there’s enough space inside for a few books in the main compartment, while still providing enough smaller areas to keep various odds and ends—pens, flash drives, chargers, you name it.

IMG_0256[1]At $69.99, it is a bit of an investment. But I see it as a worthwhile one. What other accessory will I take with me to work every day, to the office, to meetings, to conferences, etc.? The quality of the materials is high, and I haven’t seen any signs of wear to speak of, so I expect this bag to be around for quite a while! IMG_0259[1]

For more info about the company and the bag, you can follow this URL and search for their messenger bags: http://altegobrand.com/

One lucky winner will receive their own Altego canvas laptop messenger bag ($69.99)!

What a great Father’s Day gift idea!!

Welcome to MamaNYC‘s 3rd annual mamaLOVE giveaway hop!  Its time to celebrate all the miracle moms in our lives and win some prizes that moms would especially love.  This event runs from May 1-14, and you can find the grand prize of a Mother’s Day gift basket and a pendant necklace over at mamaNYC.

mamalove-2014-banner_zps7a2711e4As I was approaching motherhood with my first baby in my belly, I decided I would never tote around a big ugly diaper bag, or atleast anything that reminded me of a diaper bag.  I would only own chic, fashionable, trendy handbags that would happen to have extra diapers and sippy cups inside.  Two kids down, and I am singing quite a different tune.  If I’m going to be carrying any bag around that is enduring spit-up accidents, sippy cup spills, snack cracker crumbs, and filled with every toy we own, its most certainly going to have a lot of features that those supposedly trendy bags don’t have, without sacrificing style or personality.

Lug-LogoLug Life bags!  Have you heard of them?  These bags are winning awards and showing up in all sorts of magazines like Good Housekeeping, Women’s Health, and Family Circle.  See, LUG’s products aren’t just for the mom.  They are for everyone who uses everyday things from laptop cases to lunch totes, wallets, beach totes, gym bags, school backpacks, and clever travel gear.

Since babies and kids are going to be playing a prime role in my life for at least the next decade, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this Tuk Tuk Carry All Bag, which is sold for $113 and categorized under the “Diaper Bag” section, but really, like the title suggests, it can be used for anything and everything.

IMG_0507

This bag (and all LUG bags) have unrivaled organizational features!  No one should have to carry around a ‘pit’–you know, a catch-all that you have to dive into and rummage around in order to find anything.  With this bag, everything you could think to bring has a place and a space.

Untitled-2Look at all these genius features!  Included is a drawstring bag to hold extra clothes, shoes, or even the clothes your baby was wearing before the blow-out.  You also get a changing pad (so useful!!) and an attached key ring.

IMG_0514Oh, and would you look at that?!  A pair of gym shoes in the back!  See, you really could make this your hip gym bag on the weekends.IMG_0522Now check out these straps.  They can be folded up and hidden inside the corner pockets, or pulled out and strapped around the handle bars on your stroller.  Genius.  There are SO many pockets and SO many places to hold water bottles, sippy cups, and baby bottles.  No milk spills in this neighborhood because this material is water-repellent!

The Tuk Tuk comes in TEN vibrant colors…
