SmiLe aGain Creations Review and Giveaway

I have a mild addiction with handbags... we have a love hate relationship. I love them and hate them because I can't own all of them in creation. How amazing would that be? I got the great pleasure of working with Susie this week. The owner and operator of SmiLe aGain Creations on Etsy. She has a wide range of unique handmade items in her shop... the one that caught my eye? Her buckeyes hobo bag. 

You may not know who the buckeyes are... Ohio State baby! I love them! and Susie made a kickass hobo bag out of an Ohio State t-shirt. So not only do I have a killer, casual purse but it is also sporting my favorite team. She also carries bags from other colleges and teams in case you aren't interested in Ohio state... although I don't know why you wouldn't be ..(just sayin!). She also has some more plain bags, you know if you aren't really into sports, but want to look fashionable and comfy with your new hobo. She has a style for everyone!

Susie is nice and an amazing shop owner. Everything is reasonably priced and perfectly giftable.  She is so friendly. I wish in the customer service world that I always got to deal with someone like Susie. She is quick to answer any questions you may have and never makes you feel like you are asking too many. You can tell that she takes great pride in what she makes and wouldn't send you anything or represent anything but the best!

As stated above I received the Ohio State hobo. It is a medium sized hobo bag with tons of room for everything you need to carry on a daily basis. I was able to fit 4 cell phones, an iPad, a Kindle fire, A small make up case, my wallet and chargers for all of the above and I still have room. A lot more fits in this lovely bag then I thought could. It also held up to the test. My life is everything but calm, I live out of my purse. I am always on the road and have a 2 year old on the ride as well. So I have sippy cups and binkies and diapers... which also had no problem fitting! I was able to carry my life with me in my purse and have it look fashionable... and it didn't fall out because its all nicely zippered in!

Its also very structurally sound. Susie has perfected these bags. They are sewn to perfection. With everything in the bag... mind you this is a lot of stuff and was relatively heavy... I had no issues with seams ripping or the sound of tearing. It carried everything like a champ. Another plus is where it was made from a jersey knit shirt, the handle feels padded, so even though its heavy, its extremely comfortable on your shoulder. Nothing compares to this hobo! 

Take it from me... I own 247 handbags and this is my go to bag right now. It holds up better, I don't have to worry about losing my things in my car and it fits everything and still has room for more!  Whats also great for all you cross body lovers, is this bag can be worn on the shoulder or as a crossbody bag... you get the best of both worlds!
