OUR CUDDLY MONKEY BAG
We were sent the very fabulous Chica bag from Cuddly Monkey in black. The bag is sturdy, well made and I love how well lined it is.
My intention was to carry it as a bag for my pool stuff (water bottle, sunscreen, NOOK, magazines) as I wanted something separate from what the kids carry. However, the bag is so cute and I have gotten so many compliments on I that I have started carrying it every day as a purse.
I love that I can grab a few extra things like my iPad or netbook and everything fits in in perfectly. This truly is a bag that can be carried everywhere.
Now you know you want to win one, right?
