Do you remember my fabulous Father's Day review for CafePress last month? Well, they were so pleased with my last review that they agreed to let me review another one of their awesome products and share it with my lovely readers!
Just in case you've been living under a rock, CafePress is an online shopping paradise. They have thousands upon thousands of unique and personalized gifts for family and friends. Whether you want a special coffee mug or a sassy t-shirt, odds are you'll find just what you're looking for at CafePress. You can even create your own designs by uploading your very own photo for CafePress to print!
It's always so hard to pick just one item since there is just so much to choose from, but I ultimately decided on the Mommy Blogger Beach Tote for my review. It arrived just in time for our weekend beach getaway.
The oversized canvas bag can easily hold two thick beach towels and a few beach toys with room to spare. It features a large, outer compartment with Velcro closure, perfect for a magazine or book, sunscreen or maybe a few extra swim diapers and packet of wipes. It also has a small inner pocket for easy access to a cell phone, keys and/or sunglasses. The thick, generous straps make it comfortable and easy to throw over your shoulder and go.
I love the bright, girly hot pink color and I was happy to proclaim that I am a "Mommy Blogger". I also love how roomy and practical the tote is. However, I was unaware that the words "Daddy Blogger" were also emblazoned on the back of the bag. My husband is not a blogger - and even if he were, he would never be caught dead with a pink beach bag - so this was not very fitting for us. If I had known this prior to ordering, I would have probably chosen another design. I'm sure I could return it but but since that side is mostly hidden and I really do love everything else about the bag, I plan to continue wearing it proudly.
If this had been my first experience with CafePress, I may have been disappointed. However, since I've had numerous positive experiences with them where my item was exactly what I had hoped for, I can't let one "so-so" experience deter me. I will definitely be back!
