Blog Spotlight- Better Life Bags

I am not actually here, I am at the beach. I'll see everyone Monday! :)

I am so excited about today's blog spotlight! I'd like you to meet Rebecca of Better Life Bags. She is one of the most talented women I've ever seen in blogland, and I mean it! She's the kind that turns on her sewing machine and whips up something magical.

 You've seen this gorgeous number! Her Carla bag is my favorite, simple with small details (love the little pleat in the middle) and even has pockets for you cell phone and keys. And that's not even the best part, by clicking here you can see her stunning collection of fabric choices and then pick. you. own!! That's right, you choose your own fabrics and Rebecca will custom make your bag for you! No mass produced items here, your bag is stitched with you in mind!

Expecting a little one or know a mom-to-be? She makes diaper bags too! This one is called The Emily, whenever I get around to having some kids The Emily will be my top choice for diaper bags ! And yes, you can customize this one too. :)

Toting around a toddler in one arm and an infant in the other? No problem! She makes convertible diaper backpacks that you can wear FOUR different ways. Seriously, how clever is that? All the features of her regular diaper bags but infinitely more handy dandy! And (are you catching on yet?) you pick your fabrics!!

There are probably a lot of students in your life, and she's got them covered too! The Brynnda is a chic messenger bag sturdy enough for books and big enough to hold a laptop. It even has pockets for pencils and calculators!

Wait, you don't need a new bag?? I bet you DO need a ruffled clutch....

And a new checkbook cover. (I know I do! My poor checkbook is an embarrassment of tatter brown plastic. Yuck!) Oh and guess what? With the purchase of a bag, Rebecca ships accessories free!!

Have I sold you on Better Life Bags yet? I haven't even told you why I like her shop (and blog) so much. She is a wife and mommy (soon to be mommy of two!), just like a lot of us. She is busy with her own life and family and she loan out 10% of the bag transaction to a low-income entrepreneurs in developing countries. You read that right. Her belief is that she can "make lives better one purse at a time." How inspiring is that? When you buy a bag, you receive a print out of who got the 10% and what they are going to use the money for! In the near future, she and her sweet husband are going to expand the business to give even more by creating job opportunities and community service projects in a poor, immigrant, Muslim community.

How can you not love Better Life Bags? Amazing products and such a generous owner. I hope you take a few minutes to check out her shop and blog. I believe you'll be just as inspired as I am.

Oh...and you can take advantage of the 25% OFF SALE!! :)
