GiGi New York: Tote-ally Awesome.






Traveling a lot
offers you the ability to learn
how to travel smart.

You learn what things you can do without
and what things you absolutely can't live without.

Pretty much anything that weighs more than 
my makeup bag or a paperback book
isn't making the cut...
my shoulders are so worn down from years of schlepping
my laptop, notepad, camera, water bottles,
piles of books I wanted to read (but never did)
around as we traveled.

But I'm older & wiser now....
and I have a kid
that requires lots of other transported junk gear.

So how do you travel smart
when you need all the essentials,
need it to double as a diaper bag,
but want to look like a normal/non-mom person?

Well, I have no idea...
but I think this cute tote bag
by GiGi New York
gets me pretty close to it.






I like the idea of using a bag
that is cool enough to me to wear pre-baby 
... after you become post-baby.

Obviously, I realllly like that idea. Reason 1051 I'm not a fashion blogger. God bless those special people.




Plus, you can put your own initials
on the cute bag tag...
or have them stamped directly on the bag.

{Like my cross-body from last summer had, remember?}



Your choice.




Traveling is hectic enough...
so why complicate it with extra pieces
when you could just carry everything in one, pretty, chic bag?


Especially when you've already got your hands full.
