Day #16: I Am In LOVE TNMBN Giveaway Event

It's Day 16 of the event and today's 
review & giveaway is brought to you by Open Hands.
I am your typical girly girl, I love clothes, shoes, makeup to change up my hair style and of course an amazing handbag! Being a mom of 3 little one's  its been awhile since I have carried much other than a diaper bag. :-/ I have been using the same purse for "Date Nights" for the past 3 years! I was so very overdue for a new purse. About a year ago I stumbled upon an amazing Etsy shop called Ivey Expressions and I have been obsessing over admiring her work ever since!

 I kid you not when I say I would often go to her page and be in awe of her work. I fell in LOVE with so many of her bags! So I was thrilled when Joanna agreed to work with me and my blog. When it came time to choose my bag, I was browsing for a bit before finally deciding to go with the Front Ruffle Purse. I thought it was so cute & girly! Just what I needed for a good date night, or girls night out.

  Joanna, owner of Ivey Expressions, is great to work with! Every bag is custom made so you get a bag that fits YOUR style! I am a big fan of that! When it came to my bag, I chose to go with the sea foam colored ruffles and camel colored strap.  When my bag was complete a picture was uploaded to her FB page and I was so excited to know it was on its way!!

 When my bag arrived I RAN into my house from the mailbox! I was so anxious to open it up! I opened up the package, and seriously... love at first sight! 

  I love everything about this purse!! Everything from the fun girly ruffles on the front & the inside fabric to the little zipper that matches the frills! This purse has turned me into a giddy school girl all over again! I have a hook on the back of our bedroom door and the night it arrived my husband and I were watching tv in bed and I just kept glancing at my purse hanging on the door and getting a big smile on my face, my hubs couldn't help but laugh. ;-) He said he really likes it too! Normally he complains about all the bags I have lying around, but this one he actually said "thats really nice, I do like that one!" .

  I was anxious to see how well all of my stuff would fit into it! Even though I plan to use this purse for when I am out without the kids, I still carry a lot of stuff with me. I am that girl that over packs for every know, we go away for a weekend and I take about 4 bags. Well the same can be said for my everyday outings. ;-)

Everything fit!!

  I really can not say enough about this purse and my experience in working with Joanna! She really is fabulous to talk to and her work is just as amazing!! Ivey Expressions will definitely be getting business from me in the future and I would definitely encourage you to give her shop a try!!

  Joanna has been kind enough to offer one of you a $20 credit to be used at her shop! Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win. This giveaway will remain open until Friday March 2nd, Good Luck!!
