CLOSED ~ Cuddly Monkey Tote Review and Giveaway
I am a tote bag fiend. There I said it. Yes, I love tote bags. I have so many. I have some small ones, medium ones and some large ones. They are recyclable, linen, plastic and everything in between. I use them for so many things. I use them to carry books, at the beach, for lunch and to travel. I honestly have at least 15 tote bags that I use.
When I was contacted to review a Cuddly Monkey tote bag, I jumped at the chance. A girl can't have enough tote bags.
Here is a little info on Cuddly Monkey:
The new collection of Cuddly Monkey tote bags are the definition of stylish but functional fun -- perfect for any stylista on the go. On the outside, the durable 100% cotton canvas makes the bag useful for any outing. On the inside, the vividly designed cotton linings prove that Cuddly Monkey isn't your basic tote bag -- it's the tote for every lifestyle, from the inside out! Cuddly Monkey was born in the heart of Soho in the design studio of Stag&Hare, a team of brand strategists and designers with a passion for creating and exploring. The current selection of totes range from $68 to $94 retail value.
I chose the Goddess tote to review because it had both a long strap and smaller straps. I love tote that give me the option of long and short straps. I also liked the fact that the Goddess Cuddly Monkey tote is huge! The inner part of the tote is large enough to fit anything! I was able to fit my exercise shoes, clothes and two water bottles. I was also able to carry my work laptop and files along with my purse in the tote.
The tote is sturdy and very well made. It is made of canvas so it will hold up for years! I love the cute inner lining as well. There is an inner pocket with a zipper to hold the important stuff. There are also 4 outer pockets that are great to slip in sunglasses, phone, keys or a water bottle.
It also looks great. I have had a few compliments from co-workers. This is also a great bag for traveling. This weekend I am taking a mini vacay and I was able to put in my laptop, toiletries and shoes in the Goddess bag with no problem. I cannot wait to take it on my trip to Costa Rica next month. Not only will it be great as a carry-on but I can use it to go to the beach!
I have to say that the Cuddly Monkey Goddess tote has become my favorite tote! It is so perfect for my lifestyle and it is so stylish. I am not the most fashionable person around but this makes me seem like I am. I would totally recommend these to anyone who loves totes as much as I do. Well, I would recommend these to anyone! I love mine!
