Pink Shoulder Tote Bag from Vera

Vera Tote Shoulder Bag from Vera


If you don’t know me, let me tell you a secret. Ok its not much of a secret since I pretty much tell everyone and anyone. I LOVE pink! And I LOVE Elephants almost as much as I love pink. And if you give me the 2 together I about die with excitement!

I knew I HAD to have this bag. And it doesn’t disappoint! The pattern is beautiful and bold the pink is more of a magenta and is lovely. My pictures don’t do justice, this bag is so much prettier in person. And I love the rope handles, they are a soft yarn feel, this not stiff and straw feeling like some cheap bags. And they are nice and big/long too.

I’m unsure of the fabric of the bag itself but it is a bit textured, thin but still durable and flexible. The inside has a thin lining with a nice little coin pocket. I do wish the liner was a bit thicker as it seems rather thin as you can see right through it. I love the fact that this bag zips close! Most bags have a snap which I am not a fan of. I love zippers!

Besides the pattern, my favorite part is how huge this bag is. You can fit a ton in this. My bag measures approx 21″x 14″ This is great for a day at the beach, or even a weekend trip. You can easily fit a few pairs of clothes in it. There are also a ton of other color/design options available go check them all out here. This is a great value and I will be using mine alot!

I’m kind of old school when it comes to technology, I still use a regular wired earpiece for my phone when I drive, which isn’t the most comfortable on long car rides. Most of my driving tends to be highways and usually the same boring routes so I tend to spend alot of time talking on the phone or flipping through radio stations since I can’t stand commercials.

I knew this was going to come in handy on my next 2 hour car ride! Although it did come with a user guide, I didn’t feel it made much sense on how to get it to work. It was more of a tip sheet. So if you aren’t big on technology it might take a bit of time to figure out. I plugged it, synced it up to my phone and just picked a random radio station til it came in clear. My biggest con would be the volume, it was rather low I had to turn up my volume on my radio rather high in order to hear the other person. I am not sure if that is the device or my car. Otherwise the phone part worked nicely. I really liked how an incoming call will ring and then you will hear a voice announce the phone number.

Next I tested out the music feature by using the sd card feature which I absolutely love! I had music and pictures on my sd card so I wasn’t sure how it was going to work but it automatically started playing music as soon as I inserted the card! This part is great, no more commercials on long car rides, and the remote would be great for a passenger or kids in the backseat to control the songs. It also has a 3.5mm input or a USB input so you could hook up a mp3 player or other device too.

Another great feature is on the bottom side is another USB 5V so you can charge your phone also. This also works with many different types of phones! I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 which is rather old. So if you have an old phone, or an older car but want to be all tech and cool, or….. if you just get sick of wearing an earpiece and listening to commercials like me, then this little gadget is great.

Toothbrush Shield & *Giveaway!*

Toothbrush Shield by IntelliDent 


I’m guessing you have no idea what a Toothbrush Shield is, mostly because I didn’t know what one was up until a few weeks ago. But trust me your going to want to find out! I travel, and when I do I use a toothbrush cover, or when I lose it I sometimes just throw a toothbrush into a plastic ziplock, and then of course I forget about it all day as I return and its wet and gross and smelly and it results in me throwing away my travel toothbrush (good thing I keep a supply of back-up travel toothbrushes) but that gets pricey. Not anymore!

The toothbrush shields come in a pack of 10, all nicely individually sealed, super easy to use and fits on all size toothbrushes.

These are great for traveling because the material is breathable and drying but doesn’t get wet on the outside. They are lab tested to be 99.9% effective against surface and airborne bacteria, were as plastic caps hold the moisture in and are known to trap and breed bacteria. I don’t know about you, but its kind of gross to think about germs and bacteria crawling around in my mouth!

Even if you don’t travel much these are great for home use too. I never realized how important it is to keep your toothbrush covered! Here is a fun fact from the IntelliDent Website:

 Did you know? A flushing toilet releases a fine mist of airbourne droplets that settle on surfaces within a six foot radius of the toilet; this mist can contain e-coli and many other harmful bacteria.

So while the shield doesn’t kill germs it does block them, so while your out buying a new toothbrush you should probably get some of these to go with! Your mouth will thank you! Have a mouth guard or retainer? They got you covered too. There is a shield for that. Want another reason to love this company? Made in the USA and Women Owned 🙂

IntelliDent was gracious enough to send me extras so I want to share!! I am giving away a Sample Pack of Toothbrush and Mouth Guard Shields for a lucky reader to try!! Can’t wait to see if you will win? You can find them in select Walmarts, and online at Drugstore.com, Walmart.com, Walgreens.com and Riteaid.com
