I am so excited for today! The first Groovalicious Gotta Get! No – it is not a BacknGrooveMom T-shirt!
As moms in business, we travel throughout our day prepared for the unexpected. We ready ourselves for sick kids, spring breaks, conference calls while waiting for school pick-up, workouts, and BUSINESS. We transition from carpool driver to business woman to soccer/ballet/basketball/gymnastics mom seamlessly. Some days, I believe that as mompreneurs we actually may have an extra 30 minutes in our day (or at least we make it seem that way).
We all have our products that we swear by, that we cannot live without, and remain loyal to day after day. YES, the smart phone is all of our best friend (and enemy), but it is not the first on this list. I am certain that there will be one week dedicated to the phones that we adore. This week, it is thrilling to unveil the first of my Groovalicious Gotta Gets.
If you know me personally or even just follow me in cyberspace, you know that I never go anywhere without my tote. I was so excited to abandon my diaper bag for a purse a few years back, but as I made the move to a mom in biz……I was back to needing a big bag. I fell in love with totes about 2 years ago, and now my purses sit on my vanity collecting dust. It is only appropriate that the first Groovalicious Gotta Get is my mompreneur tote. Without the tote, we would have nothing to fill with all the other Groovalicious Gotta Gets.
This past Mother’s Day, the boys and DH bought me this fabulous tote at Coach.
The Audrey Tote in Blue Patent. It is gorgeous, has amazing interior pockets with a dedicated place for a smart phone, deep enough to hold a laptop, and a gorgeous periwinkle satin lining. The Audrey Tote is definitely a BIG splurge, hence it was a present, so I am always looking for a more realistic model. I found this groovy get at Target.
This fun bag/tote is by Mossimo for Target, and wait – it was only $29.99! The bag is super stylish and sophisticated, especially with a leopard print lining, and it comes in a number of colors (I saw white, camel, grey, black, and eggplant). I was able to stuff EVERYTHING that I carry around into this bag including my 15″ laptop and/or my iPad.
The interior has 2 pockets – one zippered and one open – either could be used for your smart phone. Although, there are these adorable side pockets on the outside that I found perfect to unzip and put my phone inside.
I met some old friends for dinner this week, took out my iPad, tossed the Mossimo tote over my shoulder, and headed out for the evening…..another important feature of a Groovalicious Gotta Get. The tote definitely handled my busy day with style, accompanied me to the boys’ basketball camp, and went straight into my girls night out!
There you have it! The first Groovalicious Gotta Get – a mompreneur tote! I never leave home without it! RB
