Giveaway: I'm Too Hungover
to Make a Bag Pun

Monday, June 25, 2012

Personally, I don't care much about handbags, but I've been on a quest for the perfect tote forever — leather messenger bags, canvas bucket bags, backpacks, roller bags, free bags from supermarkets and street fairs — name it, I've got one on the top shelf of my hall closet.

So when Bob from Simply Bags emailed to ask if I'd review one of their beach totes I was all, "Yes! This will probably not end up in the pile on top of my closet!" A week later my monogrammed beach bag arrived and within 24 hours was filled with a towel, sunblock, water and some crap for Anna to snack on (note: cheese sticks are a hot weather snack fail). My favorite feature is the inside zip pocket that kept my iPhone and key fob out of sandy little hands that can't just play with their damned bucket and insist on rummaging around the bag when for the 100th time I TOLD YOU, MOMMY FORGOT THE GOLDFISH! Ahem. Also the carry straps are very comfy and sturdy enough to drag a 33-lb. 4-year-old who insists there are Goldfish in there somewhere all the way back to the car.

Want one? Simply Bags created a sweet little code that gets you 10% off their stuff, just enter SNAPSHOTS at checkout. And because I felt crappy about reviewing a bag I got for free without giving something away, I'm buying one of these for you guys:

The winner will be picked at random on Thursday at 9 a.m. EST and entry is easy (that's what she said — zing!):
