About Maggie Bags:
Maggie Bags legacy began with their parent company, Adrian's Inc., launching Tennessee Webbing Products since 1991. Tennessee Webbing has been keeping millions of yards of narrow fabric out of landfills since they began their operation. At Maggie Bags, their mission has always been to do their part for the environment.

Maggie Bags launched their first line of seat belt handbags in the spring of 2009 with a handful of retailers and a little online shop. Today their fashionable and functional seat belt purses can be found in hundreds of retail locations all across the United States, many online retail stores and in their own online store.

About the Products:
Maggie Bag seat belt handbags are made with automotive seat belt webbing built to meet the government safety standards to protect you in your car. Due to the high standards, millions of these yards of seat belt material get rejected by automakers each year. Maggie Bags uses as much of these rejected material as possible in their seat belt purses and handbags. The availability of these rejected seat belt webbing can vary greatly therefore some of the material must be purchased new to meet the growing demand for their unique and stylish seat belt handbags.


Maggie Bags and their team are always looking for creative ways to do their par in the environment. They are proud that the construction of their handbags is a simple cut-and-sew operation. This helps to minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing new materials and also eliminates the need for typical recycling processes that consume a large amount of energy and other resources.


My Review:
What woman doesn't love their handbag? There are tons of styles that fit our outfits and personality. Now, I have to admit that I am not much of a handbag person. Well... until recently. I've used handbags in the past and they just didn't seem "me". I guess being a mom, I am so used to carrying a diaper bag around. Not only was I using the diaper bag for diapers, I was also using it as a purse as well. It does become a bit boring when you are carrying the same thing around for over 6 years. Yes, I've been using the diaper bag that long, lol.

With my youngest, who is 2 years old, I still have to lug the essentials around. It's funny how I bring the diapers and he never seems to go on himself while we are out, but when I forget the things at home, he decides to have an accident. Oooh for the love of kids, lol.


I received the Cicily Tote ($76.00) in Lime to review. This bag is perfect to hold what you need and is small enough to be a cute tote.

 

Inside the Maggie Bag, it has a zipped pocket, cell phone pocket and a key pocket. The bottom of the bag also has four-nickle plated feet.


And here is how I have been using my Maggie Bag. The thing I love about this bag is that it's not to big nor to small. It's the perfect size for someone that doesn't stash to much in their bag, lol. The only things I keep in the are diapers, wipes, cell phone, wallet and keys. Oh, and I forgot my little baggie of medical things like bandages and other stuff just in case if one of the kids were to hurt themselves while we were gone.
I use this bag on a daily basis, especially when we are going somewhere. I am in love with the color, the size and it's adorable design as well!
