Maranda Lee/Hot Mama Hand Bags Review & Giveaway
Every mama loves hand bags, but when you become a mom, it's not always easy to find the "perfect" hand bag to fit all of your growing needs, and be stylish at the same time. I found Maranda's amazing Etsy shop recently, and it was love at first sight.
With so many bags to choose from, it wasn't easy to decide, but on thing was for sure....no matter which one I ended up choosing, it would meet all of my busy mom needs and beyond.
I finally settled on the large Emma bag in the Ironworks pattern, with polka dot fabric on the inside lining.
I could not wait to get this bag, and was nowhere near disappointed when I finally received it. First of all, I wanted the darker pattern because of the obvious reason.....things get messy quick with kids!
The fabric is very very durable and strong, and the strap is adjustable to a few different lengths, which makes it easy to use for anybody. Inside there are 3 "open" pockets (no zipper or snap enclosure), 3 elastic open pockets, as well as a clip for pacifiers, keys, etc. The bag itself has a snap closure to keep contents from falling out, yet everything is still easily accessible.
There is SO much room inside! I can easily carry diapers and wipes in the wider elastic pocket, sippy cups in the others, my wallet, check book, snacks for the kids, cell phone, camera, and even after all of that, there is still tons of room to spare!
Lately, I have been using this bag as my dance bag. I have hip hop dance every Friday night, and I throw my wallet, keys, checkbook, cell phone, water bottle, dance shoes, and a change of clothes in this bag, and there is plenty of room...and it's way cute and stylish to carry around. And the compliments I have received are endless.
I wish I could include photos here for you to see, but if you have read any of my other more recent posts, you know my camera is broken. :-( So, when that is finally replaced, I will post pics!
All in all, I am so happy with this bag, and in the short time I have had it, it has already gotten so much great use, and will continue to do so. If you are looking for a roomy, stylish, chic bag, Hot Mama Handbags is the way to go!
Purchase it: You can purchase this bag and many others at Maranda's website.
