Back to School LeSportsac Giveaway #2

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED! 

Hey my little ponies! <– I’m calling you folks my little ponies now because I like ponies better than kitties. Thank you to all who entered my first Back to School LeSportsac Giveaway! I will be picking a winner SOON — hopefully I can sit down after I get off work today and print out the entries, cut them up, fold them, shuffle them,  pick one out of a hat, and then announce the winner tonight! I’m so sorry to keep those who entered in suspense. I’ll get on it. I promise!

In the meantime, the second and last Back to School LeSportsac giveaway will be for this hella cute Messenger Backpack in their funky “Giddy Up” print!

This backpack is EXTREMELY versatile as it can also be used as a messenger bag! Sling it over your back or over one shoulder — this bag can be used however you want. When I took it out of the box I thought, “Oh, that’s a cute messenger bag.” Then I started playing around with the straps and was like, “HOLY CRAP IT’S A BACKPACK TOO!” I failed to see that LeSportsac had mentioned it in the email they sent me. Derp. It was still a delightful surprise though and it’s roomy to boot which is always important! There are two pockets in the front of the bag when you open it up — perfect for storing things that you need easy access too. There’s also a side pocket which I’d probably put a little compact and chapstick in (because who wants chapped lips at school or anywhere for that matter?), or even a pen. Do you ever find yourself digging for a pen when you suddenly need one? Like when you need to write something down, or if someone asks for a writing utensil to jot a quick note? That little pocket will save you from digging! The larger pocket is great for holding a few books for an English class, an iPad or laptop (best to hold a laptop in if you’re using it as a backpack), notebook, and other essentials. There’s also another zip pocket on the back of the inside of the bag to store other small items. I personally like it best as a messenger bag, but I do love that this bag gives you another option (and one that’s good for your back and shoulders!). 🙂

Like the last giveaway, you’re more than welcome to enter whether you’re in school this semester or not 😀

Back to School LeSportsac Giveaway #1

* Giveaway now closed. Thank you to all who entered! *

I’m super stoked to announce that this “Heather Hobo” from LeSportsac’s Fall 2013 collection is up for grabs in my latest giveaway! LeSportsac was kind enough to send me two bags to give away to my fantastical readers, so the next Back to School giveaway will be up right after the giveaway for this cute hobo bag ends in 10 days! I’ll get to the giveaway details in just a moment. First things first: let’s talk about the bag for a bit, shall we?

This “Heather Hobo” comes in a rusty light red bandana inspired print which is perfectly titled “Howdy.” The shade looks just a tad bit brighter in person than it does in the picture above, which I think looks better in my opinion. This is definitely the kind of bag I would’ve taken to class every now and then as it’s spacious enough to hold the essentials: a notebook, planner, pencil pouch, wallet, iPod/phone, book, etc. I always had a tendency to bring medium sized totes and purses to school just because I didn’t like carrying big bulky bags that were heavily loaded. But even if you do wind up putting more things inside it, there’s a convenient adjustable strap (which is beautifully embroidered and reminicent of a guitar strap) that you can throw over your body to avoid getting that whole one-shoulder-pain. Y’know what I’m talking about? That pain you get from those over-the-shoulder bags because you have too much crap in your bag? Crossbody bags are great for avoiding things like that, and this bag can be either/or since the adjustable strap can be taken off if you don’t want it there. YAY for versatility and convenience!!! There’s also a little pocket on the front of the bag which is perfect for placing your phone and chapstick for easy access. And there’s a couple of other pockets inside the bag as well. There’s no such thing as too much storage space for a bag!

Whether you’re back at school this semester or not, you’re more than welcome to enter this giveaway!

But let’s lay down some ground rules:
