One would expect that with all my road trip experience, I’d be an expert when it comes to packing. Honestly, I’m not. Road tripping, as opposed to flying, has spoiled me because normally I can pack whatever I want with little regards to space issues. Instead of learning how to condense my clothing, I’ve learned what luggage, totes, and bags I prefer to use when I travel. https://i.pinimg.com/150x150/69/57/72/695772bab739bfdf0e283ec5afaaaaeb.jpg

I put 3-ring binders, notebooks, laptop, everything I need for school in this bag, and it holds up really well. Stitching is strong and fabric is super sturdy. The wide bottom makes it convenient for putting in lots of things. The fabric is flexible yet holds up the shape even when completely empty. I really like the fact that the bag can "stand" on its own when I put it down on the floor. The large pockets all around are so handy for organizing things. I especially like the mesh pockets on the sides, which I use to hold water bottles. https://i.pinimg.com/474x/7f/59/bb/7f59bb9fc1ec1591030444cf1a9f1d8b.jpg

When I’m out with my husband, hiking or taking a local day trip, I normally travel with my point and shoot and DSLR camera. While I have a heavy-duty camera backpack that I pack with my camera gear when I’m traveling, I don’t normally haul it all around for day trips which is why I was excited to receive the Sling-Back Bag. I can store my phone, battery charger, business cards, point and shoot camera and DSLR in this handy bag and hit the road. I recently went hiking with it and loved it. It’s very comfortable and can be worn cross-body or over the shoulder. If the large compartment where I stored my Canon camera was padded, I’d use this all the time as my go-to camera bag for day trips. This bag is shown in Black but is also available in other colors and patterns and sells for $48. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/30/ca/07/30ca0796d7aa6ade54dc481b9dea97a4.jpg
1. It holds all the essentials and then some. There's a place for a pen to fill out the custom forms, a money pouch, and a pocket for your phone and passport. That money pouch would've been helpful while trying to get JetBlue to rebook my flight since supposedly "cash would've been easier than credit card..." slightly suspicious he wanted me to bribe him. Alas I didn't have cash, so he booked everyone else before me and I ended up spending 2 days at JetBlue terminals trying to get home! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/8d/97/4d/8d974d95c699f1e04ad00aca79bcf7ad--lia-sophia-ecards.jpg

Okay here we go, so I bought this last week for one of my friend's birthdays and THANK GOD it is more pale pink than in the photo. It's good quality (won't really know until she uses it) the zippers glide easily, the little keychain isn't total crap quality, it's basically you get what you paid for in a GOOD WAY. This surprised me, it's also bigger than I expected. I think she'll love it. Definitely recommend this. https://i.pinimg.com/474x/fe/92/03/fe9203685ce0d9d955156a86f380ac08--new-nurse-gifts-for-nurses.jpg

My FAVORITE product from Thirty-One Gifts is the Fashion Games purse in Cognac Woods Pebble. I have used this purse exclusively for over a year and a half. It has doubled as my briefcase and carried my laptop on several flights to Atlanta and California and I use it around town as my everyday purse. I love the slouchy style, the roomy interior and the small inside pockets where I can put my phone or keys and not lose them. After near daily use, this product is showing very little wear.  Originally this item cost $98 but it’s now available as an online extra for $58 plus tax and shipping. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/7f/a7/cf/7fa7cf372d4845769ea9b945d1939e62--thirty-one-products-thirty-one-gifts.jpg?b


I LOVE the Around Town Tote. I took this on a trip to the Smokies with me earlier this week and it worked perfectly. This roomy tote stored my laptop, planner, extra pens, chargers and travel brochures. It easily held everything I needed to sneak out of my hotel room and into the hotel lobby to work at night and I love the Skies for You Pebbles color. It is available in four different colors and many personalization options for $78. Personalization is extra. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ae/dd/69/aedd6982834c25bcb2fa3fc76bdc658f--holiday-decor.jpg?b

You can by this wallet for $50 on Etsy and it comes with 6 zippered fabric envelopes each with a vinyl tab to stick your category label. If you want different budget categories, the shop owner will create customized stickers for you. The shop is filled with different styles and fabrics (including a Mickey Mouse themed cash envelope wallet!). https://i.pinimg.com/736x/f9/2a/cf/f92acf5c27693b689a9d8274cbaba3ae--website-younique.jpg
I’m completely in love with mine! I haven’t given birth yet (4 more weeks!), so I’m not an expert on diaper bags but it seems like it would work better than the gerber diaper bag that I bought. The only think that the actual diaper bag has on it is the insulated section to keep bottles cool. My plan is to go with the gerber bag for a few weeks and if I don’t love it, switch them out. If you end up using it as a diaper bag, let me know how it works for you! https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/fc/eb/c2/fcebc2bf0c53323c7dc3b7458f852ec0.jpg
