Fitmark Bags for Healthy Food on the Go

In our house it’s pool season. Our neighborhood pool is like a 2nd home from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  Being there all day is so much fun but it can wreck havoc on  my body when I’m trying to eat healthy.  Planning out my meals has been imperative for the last few weeks as I’m tried to get in better shape and establish healthier habits.  The snack shack is home to ice cream, candy, chips, easy mac, microwave popcorn and soda. The only good choice for me is a fudge pop at less than 100 calories.

I ‘ve been packing snacks, shakes and food in my Fitmark bag instead.  I received The Box LG for review just in time to pack up for a day at the pool.  The convenience is paramount with its four large seal-tight containers. Each container can hold 2 sandwiches for the kids or a hefty salad for me, a few granola bars plus cut up fruit and veggies. It will hold enough for a few hours sitting by poolside.Fitmark Bags, Totes and Accessories #review #health

The insulated tote along with the included icepacks kept my contents cool while sitting in a shady spot.  The shaker bottle is too small for my protein drinks but Sabreena likes it for her fruit smoothie.

While this bag is meant for someone that is hardcore into their meal management it works perfectly for me and my family too.

These along with Toast Chee have been staple in my parent’s pantry also; I guess that’s where I get it from.

Clic-it for More Organization

No I’m not pregnant but I did get a really cool diaper bag recently to review. I don’t use a diaperbag on a daily basis anymore but when I decide to venture out with Shae and my niece Madi out I need to arm myself with something more organized than a purse.

Let me introduce you to the Clic-It™ Smart Diaper Bag System. Smart seems to be an odd word to give to a diaper bag but since it’s used to explain the organizational features it makes total sense. At first glance it looks like a regular messenger style diaper bag. But when you start digging around and “clicking” the accessories on and off it turns into your own custom designed diaper tote.

Not everyone uses pacifiers, not everyone uses bottles so this bag lets you pick and choose the accessories that fit your baby and your lifestyle. Personally I would us the insulated tote, gadget case, key ring and organizer pouch. I’m a pretty good diaper bag packer, having 3 kids will do that to someone, but having the things you need right at your fingertips is essential when you have a runny nose, fussy kid or diaper explosion.

And if your trip today differs from your trip yesterday you can easily switch around the accessories to suit the situation or a different child. No more bottles, no need to even attach that one anymore. Potty training, no changing pad needed; completely customizable.

Aside from all the additional accessories you can buy the bag already comes equipped with enough outside and inside pockets to make anyone happy. A wipe-clean surface lines the inside and best of all it has stroller loops providing a great way to hang it while keeping

I’ve attempted to video tape the easy click on process and the bag itself but I’m clumsy and stuttered most of the time. The below video will clearly show you how Clic-It has given moms and dads a great tool.

Crumpler Bags introduces Baby Anchovy

Every girl loves a great bag. That doesn’t always mean a handbag though. Crumpler Bags are different that the original design was a durable bike messenger bag used in Melbourne Australia. Superior construction, reinforced stitching, rugged durability, padded shoulder straps and colorful are the words and phrases I use to describe the entire Crumpler line.

They recently introduced a kids line which include 2 bags, Baby Pea and Baby Anchovy. Shae received Baby Anchovy a couple weeks ago to try out. Here is her product review of it:

As you can see Shae’s new Baby Anchovy bag is a unique change to her girly and dainty bags she’s been using. She is able to take Baby Anchovy to the library and load it up or take it to the grandparents with a day’s worth of gear.
I got the chance to try out Dreadful Embarrassment, a messenger laptop bag that retails $105.00 USD. Here is my video review showing you exactly how much room is available.

I’m beyond pleased with our Crumpler Bag experiences. Whatever your need; photography, school, travel, leisure or active-lifestyle find a bag that is not only perfect but will last many many years.  Shop online or Custom bag shop in New York City

CoolComputerBags review and Giveaway


We keep talking about how fun IZEAFest was but there was no mistaking this wasn’t a vacation. This trip was to better our blog. Since this was a “business” trip I needed a quality laptop bag that would hold more than just my laptop.

CoolComputerBags.com to the rescue! They supplied me with this lovely laptop tote. It held my laptop, power cord, small notebook, pens, 3 magazines, phone, Poken, iPod and random little things. I would’ve liked to fit my binder instead of the magazines and small notebook but the bag just didn’t have enough length to fit it. This particular bag is Tote Couture Pleated Laptop Bag in Lani style. It has a handbag look with leather-like drop straps and an outer pocket and is made from heavy durable printed canvas to withstand the weight of a laptop and all its accessories. My favorite feature was the open bottom “pocket” that allowed me to easily slip it over my carry on luggage handle.

If you travel you understand there is a lot of walking involved dragging your stuff behind you but this cool feature helped out a TON. It didn’t need to be on my shoulder or back and there was no risk of it slipping off and spilling the contents. Here is a list of all the fabulous features:

  • Designed to slide over rolling luggage handle
  • 14″ handle drop
  • Padded laptop compartment with secure velcro closure
  • Faux leather accents
  • Brushed metal hardware
  • Metal feet to protect the bottom of the bag
  • Contrasting interior lining
  • Business card holder
  • Pleated front pocket with zipper closure
  • Multiple interior pockets
  • Cell phone pocket
  • Key fob
  • Stylish name plate

Cool Computer Bags is a great stop on your search for laptop bags. Are you a corporate executive? How about a young student? Trendy blogger at the café? On the go through airports and hotels? No matter your lifestyle or personality or budget Cool Computer Bags has the selection to beat all others. Their goal is to provide the best shopping experience by having the biggest selection for both laptops and Macs, lowest prices and superior customer service.

Shagbags-resuable bags for the fashion-conscious

The world of reusable bags has a new name, Shagbag. A relative new-comer to the eco-bag industry, Shagbags were born in 1997 out of a desire to be earth friendly while remaining stylish. Owners Alli and Stefanie were determined to refuse store bags and this meant the shopping bag styles that are often sold near the check-out. While these bags are useful they are usually unattractive and awkward to fold and store. The duo came up with a design that is not just good-looking but durable and accommodating for many uses.


Reusable bags tend to be designed with a woman’s eye; florals, bright hues, girly patterns. Shagbag, LLC has kept everyone in mind with their different design options including cupcake for the teen, nautical theme for the men and a rubber ducky for for those just wanting tp add a little fun to everyday errands. Each Shagbag comes in its own little pouch also, so in reality it’s like getting 2 bags in one. Use the ShagBag for groceries, hitting the gym or going to the beach, the little pouch is perfect for your keys, phone or MP3 player.

Shagbags are made from 100% recyclable, tear-free, stain-free and water-resistant DuPont™ Tyvek®. This design will allow you to not only use your bags for years to come but to also feel confident that when it’s time to say goodbye it can be done safely and with the earth in mind.

Here is my Shagbag, loosely stuffed with standard groceries. As you can see it’s nowhere full but this is just to give you an idea of what can fit; 64 oz apple juice, box of No Pudge brownie mix, 16 oz spaghetti, box of cereal, box of granola bars, big jar of peanutbutter, bag of Somersaults snacks.

Again I could’ve fit so much more with little effort, the bag itself can tote up to 25lbs of goodies, whether it be groceries, new fabric store samples or baby toys for grandmas.

Shagbags are designed to be easily reused over and over. If it’s portable, accessible, crunchable, washable, lightweight, recyclable, durable, eco-friendly, soft and stylish, we will use it. Shop for Shagbags and jewelry and art in their Annapolis, MD showroom (local shopping for me) or online. At the reasonable price of $8 – $16 these would make a perfect stocking stuffer or gift for that person who has everything.
