Well, I did it. I came back from the perfect, hot, sunny, beachy weather of Puerto Rico into the cold, snowy frozen tundra of Pittsburgh, PA. There may have been some pouting along the way, but I made it back, and as a welcome home present, we're even getting a humongous snow storm. Awesome. But rather than fixate on the fact that spring doesn't look like it's coming any time soon around here, I'd rather think back to the wonderful week we spent in paradise! I'll have a full recap up later this week, but today I want to talk about my bag-- my very cute bag that went with me everywhere while I was in Puerto Rico and carried ALL of my beach essentials!
I had been on the hunt for the perfect little tote to take on our trip, so when Lauren, an Independent Thirty-One Consultant, contacted me and asked if I would like to try one of their products, I jumped at the chance. I knew I wanted something small enough to fit in our larger beach bag that holds all of the sand toys, towels, etc., but also large enough to carry all of the things I wanted to have with me at all times-- from my cell phone to extra diapers for baby C. When I spotted the Round-About Caddy in Navy Wave, I immediately knew it was "the one." I mean, look at all the things this one little bag can hold!
It really was a dream for someone as obsessed with organizing as me! All of the little pockets helped to make sure my smaller stuff didn't get lost, and the big pocket had enough room to hold all of my larger items and gave me easy access to whatever I needed at all times. Sweet!
The water-resistant fabric was absolutely perfect for the beach and pool, and if you look closely, you can see the bag's mesh bottom, which means it will dry out quickly if/when it gets wet. I loved having this tote as my main bag on our vacation because it was compact and easy to carry, but it also held a lot. And now that I'm home, I can use it to hold my makeup and hair products so I can get ready anywhere in the house and still keep an eye on those mischievous little Cs! 😀
