pergolas reviews the Large Cafe Bag

Organizational pouches. So I’m kind of scattered when it comes to my daily belongings. I ordered some small and mini pouches, but doubted that they’d actually keep things where they should be. As of today, EVERYTHING is still in its proper place (except my keys. I never get around to actually attaching them. Lol). I like that when I pull out my “wallet”, it is still attached to my bag, so it is not going anywhere. The front zippered portion is where I throw my miscellaneous items, and the main compartment has my pouches (wallet, change purse, make-up bag), pens (yes, I am actually utilizing pen slots for the first time in my life), my phone, my work phone, and my prescription sunglasses.”

dorayme: Thoughts on the Little Swift and Wasabi

dorayme on the Little Swift and Wasabi

“My first thought out of the box was WOW! It all looks so pretty together! I know that there are different philosophies to collecting TB, some more coordinated than others, but my personal preference is to gather a coordinated collection of matching and complementary pieces. The new Wasabi works so well with the other colors I have, and I love that!”

Back to school (paperless this time) with the Ristretto

Back to school with the Ristretto

“The features of the bag itself speak volumes, however my personal story with the Ristretto may add another dimension to the many college students out there. I’m a current business student at Sacramento State University and have made it a goal this upcoming semester to go paperless. It won’t be easy by any stretch but this past semester I was able to accomplish a semi-paperless routine. Now that I’m going full on, this semester means no traditional note taking, all eBooks if possible, and limited use of paper unless absolutely required. I will be able to accomplish everything I need using either my MacBook Air or iPad. On a side note, I’m even taking the public train system and riding a scooter to school from the station. Bag and all.

The Ristretto bag is the perfect fit. Just enough space, comfortable to carry, and highly stylish I might add. It is the best bag I’ve ever owned for reasons beyond what can be highlighted in this review.”

Simply Bike: travel with kids w/the Aeronaut and Checkpoint Flyer

“The beauty of the Aeronaut is that it is the absolute largest it can be while still qualifying as a carry-on bag. This meant that every aircraft, from the huge international carriers to the tiny domestic ones, allowed us to bring the bags on board and we were able to fit them into the carry-on compartment above our seats. This was especially important to us when flying overseas after our San Francisco trip, as we had our baby’s bed in the Aeronaut, to which we wanted access as soon as we arrived in Romania.”
