Major Baggage: @Baggallini

I have always been a fan of big bags because I like to carry a lot of stuff. I am one of those girls who "likes to be prepared...just in case." The downfall is, I can never find anything quickly because big bags can be an abyss of clutter and chaos. But I would just keep calm, and continue carrying on. That is until I learned about Baggallini. Now, I am not sure if you are familiar with the brand, but you know this brand is worth its weight in gold (don't judge me for the ol' school phrase) if it was founded by two former flight attendants. I mean flight attendants are the epitome of organization and ease because they have to be ready to be on-the-go. They needed something that would be their travel companion, with a lot of pockets, keep them organized, and yet still look stylish. Seriously, you couldn't ask for better functional handbag designers! So, let me thank Lisa for turning me onto this brand. It was so hard deciding on which bag I should get. It was one of those things where you could kind of use each style. But I picked the Tulum Tote and I haven't stopped wearing it since. I usually stick with black bags, but this time I wanted a pop of color, so I opted for the pacific blue. Ok, so let me tell you why it is my favorite. It has so many pockets!!! But not like so many where you still don't know where you put things. It has just the right amount. The outside pockets are a dream because I could put my cell, keys, sunglasses, hand sanitizing wipes, coldcalm, business cards, etc each in their own pocket for easy access. There is also one large pocket with a zipper...which I haven't had to use yet, but I am sure I will be soon. In the back of the bag there is a large pocket (with a magnetic snap closure) that usually housed my tablet. Inside there's a zip pocket where I kept my lipsticks and mirror, and there are two open side pockets where I put some other misc items in. The main compartment held the rest of my essentials like water, my wallet, food, and the kitchen sink. All of my friends kept saying how much they loved my bag, so of course I loved the compliments and it made me feel like job well done on the style choice I made. It is functional and stylish. Not like your mom's tote bag. Sometimes I just think totes get a bad rap in general because nobody views them as an everyday carrying choice...just something to dump spillover stuff into. But with this tote, it wasn't used as a secondary bag or as a dumping ground, it was my primary. Plus, I loved the gold hardware accents (always a good combo).

You know it is not complete without me modeling the bag for you (it's ok, you can laugh). But I seriously LOVE my Baggallini Tulum Tote. I just like bags where I don't have to think about what bag I am going to carry? Or if it goes with my outfit? And if you're always on the go, traveling, running errands, just living life, then I would definitely suggest picking a Baggallini bagg that suits your lifestyle...because they definitely have one! Oh, I think I forgot to mention...all the bags are suitcase friendly. I am sure you are well aware of the struggle of balancing your bag on top of a suitcase and trying to roll with it all. Yeah, you don't have to struggle with Baggallini baggs.

The tote comes with a mini purse inside!

you could stick your suitcase handle
straight through for jetsetting ease.

I thought you might like to see what the bag looks like inside. Now you see why I love it so much. If you're on a bag hunt, then you should definitely stop at Baggallini and pick a style that is right for you. They really are for life's journey.
