Organized Chaos + Lily Jade Giveaway

It’s never easy to be the first one out the door in the morning, or away from my children for just a quick trip.  There are always extra hugs and kisses to dole out, backpacks to double check, and the sort of reassurance that only mommy can provide.

Chaos has taught me that organization is my friend.  I turn to the same tools and products over and over again, to help keep me on track when it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day available.

Lily Jade Bag Rosie Giveaway

Over the past few years, Lily Jade has frequently popped up here as my go-to-bag – despite my little ones being long out of diapers. I’m at a point in life where I know what works for me, and so I stick to it.  Lilly Jade designer diaper bags are famous for looking nothing like a diaper bag, with top-notch functionality, style, and durability. My Lilly Jade Caroline and Sarah Grace bags have truly withstood the test of time, and my current favorite is the Rosie in camel.

I have a thing for gold and their updated hardware is stunning.

I usually try to plan work functions and meeting during the two days when my kids have after-school classes.  And when I think about it, it’s pretty amazing how NYC’s efficient train system can get me all over the city in a school-days time.  When I’m traveling with a lot of stuff that needs to be well-organized I use the baby bag insert.

It fits into my bag like a glove.

Lily Jade Giveaway || Sunday Swoon

Over the winter, I was introduced to an amazing designer diaper bag by Lily Jade.  I declared it my everything bag, took it with me everywhere and marveled at how it provided a pocket for every compartment of my life.  I thought that I was hooked solely on the Caroline Bag, but then the Sarah Grace made its way to me this summer.

In Gold.  Glorious Gold.

I’m still marveling at how much I can fit into my Lily Jade bags and how organized the removable baby bag insert keeps me.

The Sarah Grace is lovely with well structured top handles and a cross body strap.  And the pretty gold hue matches so many of my favorite things.

Remember that Lily Jade designer diaper bag I raved about a few weeks ago?  I’ve since been toting it everywhere and have grown dependent on the innovative baby bag insert.  Designed as a bag to grow well out of the baby years – it’s perfect for family outings and solo work trips.

The Everything Bag || Lily Jade

We had quite the busy weekend with birthday parties galore (three in one day!).  I even managed a solo evening on Friday night, to attend a P&G Beauty party in NYC’s Theater District celebrating the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.  I indulged in several “glam” stations and have been admiring my Olympic level nail designs all weekend.  Go Team USA!

I took my new Lily Jade Designer Diaper Bag along for the fun as nothing about this beautifully crafted leather bag screams “mom”.  I simply removed the “baby bag” insert for my big night on the town and added it back to schlep the kiddie accessories over the weekend.

I keep saying that I’m going to reclaim my bag as just my own since we’ve been diaper-free for well over a year, but I still find myself vacuuming out the inside of my bags every now and then (not kidding).  Motherhood has proven that child-related gear simply shifts post-baby years (I now lug LeapPads instead of diapers), and urban adventures on trains and our feet call for just one bag. Lily Jade’s “baby bag” insert has proven to be the answer to my organizational issues with 16 sturdy pockets and secure spots for kid-sized water bottles.  I love that I can reach in and remove the washable insert when heading out sans kiddos.

Lily Jade’s luxe leather bags are an investment – but are also multi-functional, fashionable pieces that will well outlive the diaper years.

Grab my Caroline Bag in Brady for a newly reduced price and stay tuned for an exciting giveaway!

My Everything Bag + Giveaway

Lily-Jade-Rosie-bag-black

When life seems to be in disarray – there are a few things that I try to keep organized – my bedroom, my work space, and my go-to bag.  Now and then, I connect with a band that meshes perfectly with my life. I’m currently on year four of packing my days into Lily Jade designer diaper bags, and I’m absolutely a loyalist.  Even though I no longer have tiny babies, I love how the bags have proven to evolve along with the changing shape of motherhood – making them suitable for anyone who craves functionality, quality and versatile style in her bag.

The backpack carry option is among the features that I love most about Lily Jade – taking the strain off of my shoulders and neck on days when I’m traveling all over the city.  All of  Lily Jade’s backpack diaper bags convert to a handbag or messenger carry option, and the removable baby bag (with 12 pockets!) keeps things organized and secure.  My current new favorite is Lily Jade’s Rosie. The beautiful structure, super luxe leather, and multiple carry options set it apart from any bag that I’ve every owned.

Once packed with sippy cups and pull ups – my Lily Jade bags now safely carry cameras, delicate lenses, my laptop, (sometimes kid’s stuff!) and more – making it suitable for the baby years and beyond.

Work and Summertime

#spon: I’m required to disclose a sponsored relationship between Marino Bambinos and Intel.

As back-to-school photos fire up everywhere, it’s hard to believe that the last weeks of summer are upon us.  This season has been so incredible and in some ways, there is a bit of newfound ease that comes with little ones growing older.  On our feet, scooters and trains, I’ve been trying to consciously say “yes” to parks, playgrounds and beaches whenever remotely possible.  I hope that the children will remember their days woven with adventure and the sibling togetherness that summertime allows. 

Packed schedules and mama-duty make work-time efficiency all the more important.  A stolen hour here or there is basically how I’ve been meeting deadlines for the past few weeks.   I previously shunned lugging around my cumbersome laptop for those what-if  moments until a collaboration with Intel 2 in 1 HP Pavilion made work-on-the-go possible.  I shared specifics on my HP Pavilion last month and the versatility and mobility have quickly become the features that I most appreciate.

At a mere 3.23 pounds, it fits nicely into my bags and a simple flip from laptop to tablet makes it a great family device.
