My New Love: August Bags
Isn’t she beautiful? She has traveled with me for the last few months. And, she has been a wonderful companion. She didn’t talk too much, or snore. She just held everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, perfectly in place while I got through security and customs. She sat nice and quiet and was slender enough to go under the seat in front of me. I didn’t have to put her above me where I couldn’t reach my lipgloss, if needed, when that gorgeous man sat next to m-
He got upgraded.
She was close enough so I could grab my iPad and watch Leslye Headland’s “Bachelorette” for the fifteenth time (it’s my plane movie). And, she could fit my iPad, my Beats (by billionaire Dr. Dre*), two books, my wallet, bags and BAGS of 3oz. liquids (I’m old. I need moisture-ous things.), snacks, my daughter’s lovey, her iPad, crayons, a coloring book, a game from the airport, lollipops, a flask (I wish!) and a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. Yes, it’s like a Mary Poppins bag. Yet, it carries like a sophisticated, luxurious purse.
If I wasn’t such a horrible packer, I could probably just bring her (and maybe a friend) and jet to Spain for a week. Or, more likely, Legoland. Either way, I’d look and feel amazing because of my “new love” glow!
But, seriously, this purse and company are awesome. Jenna and Charlie are probably the (hottest) most down to earth couple you’ll meet. They are good people who care about exploring the world and giving back. The purses are handcrafted, locally, in Los Angeles. (So ChikFood.) The company is also partnered with Operation School Bell and has pledged to provide a backpack for every bag they sell. (Ultimate ChikFood Prize Winner!) So, just like those over-priced slippers you pay for (that give back, too), you can feel better about buying your scrumptious bag. I’m glad I already have mine, before Gwyneth finds out and they partner with Goop and they sell out in five minutes. Damn you, GP! With the good taste…
These bags are an investment, but they’ll last forever. Where ever your Life List takes you, now you have the carry on. Where will you go?
