Giveaway and Review: Plumeria Beach Bag from Original Satin Doll

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS, LAURA!!

Today's giveaway is sponsored by Eco at the Etsy shop Original Satin Doll.



For review purposes, Eco sent me this Plumeria Beach Bag from her shop. I loved it instantly, as soon as I received it. It is durable and extremely well made. It's also substantially larger than I expected; it truly is a beach bag that can carry everything you need to get to the beach!


I had used the Plumeria bag around town as a carry-all a few times, but I really didn't need that much space for a purse. Not by a long shot. So I was glad for Monday, when I finally had a chance to get to the beach and put this great bag to use!  (Unfortunately, I forgot my 'real' camera and was stuck taking iPhone pix, but I think you can see what you need to see well enough, right?)

The bag was a workhorse at the beach! I stuffed four large beach towels, a magazine, my phone and hairbrush (in the two inside pockets perfectly-sized for such things) and a few small odds and ends, plus some of the kids' beach toys. And I could have carried more, if I had needed to do it. There was absolutely no sign of strain on the bag, and it was great-looking, to boot.

In short, I this bag!!

You can win one, too - the exact one I have. It's a $60 value and worth every penny of that!



Check out the shop for more great beach bags here!


Also, if you're a mama with a wee babe, be sure and check out this Baby Bag department. The bags look amazing! I would definitely have picked out this one if I was still in those days, myself.



Or maybe this one? You know I like my fish, right? ;)



In any case, be sure and look through Original Satin Doll for what will definitely be a top-quality and stylish bag. Check back in late August for an all-new line of handbags, clutches and evening bags!

  43. I like how the diaper bags look. But I would not use it as a diaper bag so the "baby" on the front of it is not ideal. But the beach bags are all adorable.
