Eenamaria Bags Review

3-13-2009-3-52-4012b_red_yel_wh
I’m in love with Eenmaria handbags.  Why? Well these bags are  bright and bold! …And if you know me, I love all sorts of bright and bold color! When it comes to accessories, I like to make a statement!

Eenamaria offers every type of bag you can think of from small weekend clutches to large, functional travel totes that can fit all of your travel, personal, or business needs!
About Eenamaria:

Sarah Morgan is the creative force behind eenamaria handbags. She may have inherited her talent for design from her grandmother who was a Parsian designer. She also may have discovered her talent for design while atending the Pratt Institute of Art in NYC. She generally follows two rules when designing: what period in history she’s currently fascinated by and which neighborhood in New York represents the spirit of that era. Sarah shared her new 1960s-inspired Chelsea Boi line handbags at London’s recent Fashion Week. She has truly made herself someone to watch out for. Not only has she been nominated twice for the Fashion Group International’s ‘Rising Star Award’ but she’s airing her new line on QVC. Her current line of bags are bold and edgy in bright colors on shiny patent vinyl.

116778_2_1My Thoughts:

I was blessed to receive the Workin’ Weekend Baby Tote and the Workin It Satchel to review. I love both these bags in so many ways!

Let me first tell you about the the Workin’ Weekend Baby Tote! This bag is so wonderful! First you must know I’m a red fanatic. It’s my favorite color! So when I found out that this bag was lined in a classic bright signature red, I was quite pleased! Okay, enough about my obsession with red! This bag is very roomy, and doesn’t bulge out on the sides like other bags I’ve used! I love that the bag is weather resistent (added bonus since I live in Oregon). The fact that there are top zipper closure is great!  The front and back extrerior zipper pockets help me keep organized and share my daughters diaper bag without mixing our things together. I know this is called a baby tote but I can honestly see myself using it long after baby needs a bag!

The Workin It Satchel is fun bag. It’s much smaller than the large baby tote and I like it a lot too.  It came in blue/black/and green, how vibrant!  I can stay easily organized with this bag with the added magnetic snap closures pockets on front for my cell phone and smaller camera. I use this one most often when I am not going out with my daughter.

Sun Grubbies Brim Hat Review

100_9221
My daughter's face fully protected by the sun in her Pink Brim Sunhat!

Though my daughter was born during the summer last year and was used to wearing sun hats, this year has been a different story. She hasn’t been too fond of anything being worn on her head.  I know the best thing to do is get into a set pattern. If mommy wears a hat maybe she’ll get the idea that she should wear one too! But until my daughter will grasp this idea, I’m going to stick with keeping her safe and only putting on hats that may be harder for her to remove herself!

So my search for hat that would be per say hard for my daughter to take off was set into motion. Bucket hats wouldn’t work, nor would hats with velcro ties! My search ended when I found a Pink Brim Hat from a company called Sun Grubbies.

My thoughts:

This Pink Brim Hat is perfect in every way with it’s  50+ UPF/98% UV Block! It is lightweight, water resistant and has a 3″ brim which provides plenty of sunblock to protect my daughters face from the harsh rays of the sun! Oh, and my favorite feature about this hat is the adjustable chin strap! My daughter attempted to take off this hat and eventually gave up seeing with it’s strap it was impossible. She now happily wears this hat and stays protected during the summer. No more worries for this mom! Another note, if you are interested, this hats runs from sizes birth to 4t!

Buy it: Sun Grubbies also has a great selection of sun protective clothing, of cotton or nylon, with SPF 30+ for men, women and kids of all ages.

Ozone Socks Review

logo2ozone-socks_6c948e14
Can you say fun, fashionable, and funky footwear? Oh course you can, but are you bold enough to wear it? I am and I’m glad that I can thanks to Ozone socks. I’m now making an overall fashion statement from head to toe…literally!

I was able to review the Patch Fabric in prune, Walking on Roses in Orange, and the  Mixed up Argyle in Bordeaux. These socks are so fashionable, colorful with a bit of wildness to them! My 11 month old loves them. She comes over and pokes my feet, slaps them, and laughs. It’s such a sight to see. Maybe she thinks I’m silly or a bit crazy? …the honest truth is I’m both.

I like Ozone socks, if you knew me well, you’d say they suited me perfectly. Comfort is key, and I’ve worn socks that either come down, are too thin, and ones that make my feet too warm and sweaty! Nobody ever wants that in a pair of socks. But these socks, they stay put,  are  the perfect amount of thickness, and have not made my feet sweat in the least bit! Can we say winner?

Goodbye basic black and white and hello personality! The variety of styles and colors, I’m sure you’ll find more than enough pairs to match your personality like a glove…err sock? I’m glad that Ozone is revolutionizing the fashion world for our feet! Somebody has to do it well and that they have with their huge line of  designer fashion socks, knee-highs and tights for men, woman, and children alike.

On their site, you will find amusing cartoons, and comical stories which displays just how fun socks should be. And, Ozone has solved the problem of the missing sock! They sell their socks individually as well, to make your singles a happy pair again. You can also join the Sock of the Month Club, and a new pair will be sent to you every month. It works out to about half price for the socks, and even features free shipping!

Discount: Use the code sockmonkeys during checkout on their site to receive a 25% off your total order. This code is good till May 31st, 2009. The only limitation is that it cannot be used to purchase the Sock of the Month Club, everything else is fine!

Chic Buds – “Listening never looked so good!”

chicbuds

I was given the opportunity to review chicBuds and I absolutely love them, functionally and fashionably. I chose to review the watermelon white earphones. I picked that color mostly because they match my Hello Kitty Themed iPod so perfectly.

Let me list the reasons why I like these better than regular ear buds;

Number one: These actually stay in my ears! I was always having trouble with regular ones staying put while I was walking, exercising, and cleaning.

Number 2:  They have a retractable cord which is great because with a child, you don’t need to be wasting time untangling when there are things to do between nap times! Note: Do remember to pull both ends at the same time or you will end up with a tangled cord. I did this and felt like an idiot for not reading the instructions. It was easy to fix though, which was great.

Number 3: They sound great! There is absolutely no static whatsoever to ruin your daily podcast, music, or audio book throughout the day.

Number 4: Tthey have wonderful fastening clip so the cord doesn’t bounce around and get stuck on something pulling your buds from your ears. I’ve been sweeping the floor before and that was the case with my regular pair of buds.

Number 5: They look good! Need I say anymore than that? Available in white or black earphones, chicBuds come in five flavors: Blueberry, Grape, Watermelon, Sour Apple, and Marshmallow. I also love the fine detail of the genuine Swarovski Crystals as each set has nearly 100 pieces in place!

Number 6: chicBuds work great not only for your iPod but also for any MP3 Player, CD Player or Portable DVD player or game player, PC, car stereo, TV or home stereo.

These are not only for woman as they also have a line for the trendy dad’s out there called “Rock Buds” available in 4 designs: Rock Band, Rock Star, Wings Like Eagles, and Green Camo. You can buy matching iPod cases on their site too.
These would make wonderful gifts for anyone, graduation and mother’s day is coming up soon! *Hint*
