Check Out My New Bag: The Anytime Tote From Brahmin

Hello LOVER!

I’ve been crazy over Brahmin for a few years now. Not only because I LOVE the PR team that works with the brand, but because the line itself is both unbelievably classic AND trendy at the same time. How do they do that???

I’ve been carrying around the ‘Anytime Tote’ for the last week and I have adopted it as my third child. You know when a bag is new and you don’t put it on the floor because you don’t want to get it dirty. It’s on my lap more than my kids are! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

It retails for $225 and isnโ€™t on store shelves yet. It will be available in the next few weeks on and in retail. This is a sneak peek! Colors are canary (yellow), light pink, clay (light grey/brown), oyster, white, cantaloupe, birch (shimmer white), and theyโ€™ll be adding more throughout the season.

(it’s new – not messy yet, what can I say)

Take a look at the inside of the bag. I love the three pockets and they couldn’t have come at a better time. As some of you know, I recently got the iPhone and am obsessed with NOT scratching the screen. So I put my keys in one pocket, the phone in another and use the last with the zipper for everything else (loose change, credit cards etc).

I can’t get over how roomy the whole thing is! That’s my wallet and NOOK. The size is very deceptive because there’s a lot of space to play with.

        Vera, it’s not AS good as The Hunger Games trilogy, but you might like Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. It’s a four part series, Young Adult. It’s really interesting and action packed. I think it goes: Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras.

    PS. Start with the Howard Schulz autobiography. He’s the CEO of Starbucks and the story is fascinating.

    hey Vera….when I first got my iPhone i was also paranoid about scratching the screen. They sell clear screen protectors that do the job perfectly….have had one on my phone since I got it (over a year ago) and not a single scratch. Well worth the $14.95!!!

    And if you buy the screen protector at the ATT store, they will put it on for you, WHICH IS WELL WORTH IT! I was a spaz putting it on and it had bubbles and air pockets everywhere. But its amazing and will never get a scratch.

    I am a Brahmin lover too. I have been drooling over the pecan crocodile series and my great husband bought me the Claudia Pecan Melbourne bag for me yesterday for an early annivery present! I am sooo…LUCKY! Now I will get a matching wallet to be complete. Ironic that you can own the bag for a year and if you tire of will sell on ebay for more than you paid for it! How luckky can a girl get?
