No matter how old my boys get, I find myself still utilizing many of the items that I had for them when they were babies.  Since I’m a work from home and stay at home mom, the number one thing I find I still use is a diaper bag.  Now, hold on – obviously I’m not going to be using this particular bag to hold diapers, the boys don’t use those, ha ha!  But, I don’t use my old diaper bags in the traditional sense.  I turn my diaper bags into work and planner bags so I can take my work on the go.  About 5 months ago I was sent this very cool bag from CiPU and today I’m going to share my thoughts on this accessory as well as how I utilize it for my personal use.  It may not be traditional, but it’s functional and we all know I love anything that offers function to my life.

Now, it’s no secret that I’m a laid back simpleton, basically – I’m a casual gal.  So when I can find something that works for me… I’m excited.  I was contacted by CiPU and asked to try out this “diaper bag” and if I enjoyed it, if I could kindly provide a review.  Here’s the deal – since I was using my Coach Diaper Bag from the twins as my work bag, I thought to myself… “hmm, this will be interesting to see how it would work for me.”  And, so I accepted.

CiPU is pronounced – ‘Shee’ (translated to “happiness” in Chinese) and ‘Pu’ (translated to “store” in Chinese) like “shee” in sheet and “PU” in put.

CiPU was founded in 2009 by a group of mothers and brand owner Jarrah, all of whom had one shared inspiration – an idea to gift mothers love, happiness and affection.  CiPUs focus is on style by exploring colors and patterns to suit every occasion, however – each bag is full of functionality (you see that word there, it’s golden to me) and created to meet a mother’s everyday needs.

“The Bowknot in their logo represents the ribbon on a gift, meanwhile it also looks like an “infinity” symbol.  Since children are such a precious gift and a parent’s devotion to their children are testimonies of “infinitive love” the bowknot symbolizes infinite love and the power of gifts in a single wish, a wish that every mother can enjoy blissful, long-lasting memories with their children – the greatest gift in life.”

Each CiPU bag is hand-crafted with lots of love and many of the bags are limited in quantity since they only make a few of each design.  They are each made from environmentally friendly materials and I love that CiPU offers Free US Delivery.  All CiPU bags were created with different styles and patterns to focus on women because mother’s are still women and looks matter.  Perfect for function while providing lightweight carryalls to take the load off your shoulders.

Check out my video review and come chit chat about this bag with me.  My video can be found here or embedded below.

Lightweight | Stylish | Easy Cleaning | Organizable | Large Compartments | Water repellent

CiPU offers a variety of bags to fit the mothers’, fathers’ and even babies’ style.  From Large tote bags like the one I have here to diaper backpacks in every type of color and design.  I have my eyes set on a camouflage one, a plain black bag and the Leopard next.  Let’s talk a little about this awesome diaper bag shall we?

work bag, diaper bag, CiPU diaper bag, CiPU, amazon buy, amazon haul, review, product review, planner bag, planner, work from home,

I have the CiPU Tote Diaper Bag in Heather Gray (Large).  This bag retails for $158.80 and comes with 13 large compartments to hold all of my necessities.  Now, as I mentioned before, I’m not using this bag as a diaper bag, but as my work bag so this is perfect to host all of my planner supplies, planners and even my laptop and tablet all fit inside perfectly.

work bag, diaper bag, CiPU diaper bag, CiPU, amazon buy, amazon haul, review, product review, planner bag, planner, work from home,

This bag features 1 hidden compartment (which I love to put the boys wipes in or even store their dirty clothes while out and about so it doesn’t mess up any of my papers.  You also get the following accessories to go with your bag:

  • Personal belongings pouch – this pouch comes with detachable straps and you can use this to store your diapers, wipes and changing mat.  I use this particular pouch to store my tablet for safe keeping and a few notebooks.
  • Foldable Changing Mat – this soft and easy to clean mat is perfect for changing baby, but again – I use this bag for work – so this changing mat is used as a little sitting mat for me when at the park or in case I want to put my bag down without sitting it directly on the floor.  It’s machine washable which makes it perfect for on the go.
  • Retractable Key Hold – probably my favorite thing now to keep my eyes on hand at any given time.
  • Chest Strap – this helps to keep my strap in place to prevent slip-downs
  • Slip Proof Should Straps – these soft on the shoulder straps are great and comfy.  It made long hours at the airport easy because my arms were not sore from carrying my bag too long.
  • Stroller Clips – These are great to clip to a wagon or stroller to keep your bag with you.  I use it to attach to my sports cart so I am not taking up real estate of the wagon with my bag.

The material is very soft and easy to spot clean or wash should I need it.  I love that this bag is water repellent (inside & out), especially since I always take it with me, that way I don’t have to worry about spills.  This bag comes with a gorgeous hot pink and bright lining which makes it so easy to be able to see inside and grab everything that I need at any time.  And, since this bag is made of quick dry material – it helps to prevent mold (so you don’t have to worry much about spills from milk bottles or juice causing mold if you don’t get it dried up quickly.)  This bag is perfect for outdoors – whether rain or shine and I love that it’s so easy to take with you.

work bag, diaper bag, CiPU diaper bag, CiPU, amazon buy, amazon haul, review, product review, planner bag, planner, work from home,

The CiPU Large Tote is very lightweight at just 1.2 lbs. – one of the lightest on the market.  And, remember how I said CiPU offers different bags for different personalities and sizes, your littles can have their own little backpacks too.

So, now that you have a bunch of information to make an informed decision on whether or not this bag is for you… let me keep it real for you all.  This bag is costly, but I am a handbag lover and most of my bags cost well over this amount already so I would spend this money in a heartbeat – especially after my great experience with this one over the last 5 months or so.  When it comes to how I spend my money, I tend to look at things as an investment.  These bags are an investment in not only your style and longevity of having them, but your comfort.  They are easy to carry and hold, giving you various options and so easy to clean.  As a busy mom, I know that the last thing we want to be doing is scrubbing a bag of strains or water spills.  While I don’t currently use it strictly as a diaper bag, I know the quality of the bag will hold up in that if and when I should have another child – I’ll be able to use this.  I also love that this is functional for me and allows me to use this as a “mommy bag” no matter the age of my children.  I can carry all my work stuff inside while still have a ton of room for mommy stuff too – whether it be wipes, extra clothes, toys, books for reading on the go or games – whatever tickles your fancy.

work bag, diaper bag, CiPU diaper bag, CiPU, amazon buy, amazon haul, review, product review, planner bag, planner, work from home,

We all know I am brutally honest here and I have to say – Yes, this bag is worth the cost and definitely high quality.  Like I mentioned before – I have my eyes on a few others and I plan to get them.

We are literally a couple of days away from the new year and ringing in 2017, so I thought this would be the perfect time to go ahead and share my thoughts on the 2017 KITLife Planner with all of you.  I’m a huge lover of KITLife Planners, this particular planner being my fourth that I own.  Each year I have found a new way to use the planner and I’m so overjoyed with the changes that KITLife has made to the planner that I’m excited to share it with all of you.  The KITLife planner is a daily planner layout that allows you to literally grab life by the hands and make it wonderful.  The KITLife planner is more than just a planner, but a community – encouraging women to be productive, grateful, healthy, giving and live a life full of intention.  This Planner has made such a difference in how I do things daily and yearly and I’m going to share it with all of you.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The KITLife Planner retails for $58.00.  I know, I know… many have told me in years past that that is such a hefty cost for something that you may throw out at the end of each year.  But here’s what I have to say about it… “Life is an Investment and to make it fruitful, we need to invest in the proper tools to help it grow.” (Yes, I wrote that… lol)  A Planner is just that, a tool to help keep you organized.  The KITLife Planner is a daily planner that consists of a monthly and daily layout.  I find that a daily layout is my favorite for the lister in me, I love writing out my daily to-do’s and track my progress as I complete each task.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

There are three different types of planner covers available for 2017 – The Classic Edition (which is what I am sharing with you), the Crown Edition ($72.00 – the Gorgeous White with Gold Foil cover) and The Festival Edition ($65.00 a fun cover with pink, blue and purple triangles).  Each Planner also offers you the opportunity to add in additional pages to customize your planner (at an additional cost).  The pages include:  Note Add-In, Graph Add-In, Budget Add-In, Direct Sales Add-In, Direct Sales Team Add-In and Teach Add-In.  These add-ins must be ordered at the time you order your planner.  Each plan is estimated to ship in 5-7 business days after placing your order.

So, let’s get into all the fun details.  The 2017 KITLife Planner has a new hardcover which feels much like suede.  The Team at KITLife call it the Velvet Technique in printing the cover.  It has a really cool and smooth texture that make this planner feel so luxe.  I absolutely love it and I LOVE that the planner cover is now a hardcover instead of their laminated cover like they have had in previous years.  This new hardcover makes the planner much more durable and protects the pages within.  The KITLife Planner also comes with a movable dashboard as it did last year.  I really enjoyed this option last year, but sadly, my dashboard didn’t last me past the 2 month mark.  I’m pretty brutal.  But, KITLife made some revisions and now has a very sturdy design that’s perfect for the 2017 planner.  I love that it is still easy to move and flexible without being too flimsy.  It’s a great addition and I love it.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The planner is smaller in size in comparison to past years.  Honestly, I LOVE this because it was a bit cumbersome to take my KIT with me on the go.  While I still do not take it with me usually, I love that I have that option should I decide to do so.  While it is a bit smaller in size – you still get the same amount of writing space as you did in previous years.  The monthly calendar spread also offers the same amount of space for writing which is great.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The Daily pages offer a variety of different options for daily planning.  A Checklist that also has a place for daily tracker stickers (available through KITLife), The Big 3 for Top To-Do’s each day, Time Slots from 6am to 8pm for appointments and time management listing, Wellness Tracker (to help keep track of water intake, weight and exercise and Gratitude to list what you are thankful for each day or special events that occurred.  Each weekly page also includes a Quote by various people (one of my favorite parts of this planner) and you still get a Doodle Break that is listed on the months that have a spare page before the monthly layout.  These doodle breaks are what I use to jot down any notes for the month that I need to reference like conversations on the phone, etc.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The Daily Pages have been revised in comparison to previous years which I LOVE.  I really needed an area to list my appointments and I love that there is an option for that now.  Below is a photo of last year’s layout for the daily section.  As you can see, the Fit & Fab Tip is no longer on the page, however, I still have the same amount of writing page, but I have it organized in sections to really list out what I need for the day.  I LOVE IT!

Saturdays and Sundays are still sharing one page with the “Peek at the Week” for the week following which I enjoy.  I really liked that option on my previous KITLife Planners, so I do like that it was continued.  But, I love the layout for this year’s 2017 planner much more.  I think it’s just streamlined overall and makes it so much more appealing to my eyes to keep organized.  The Peek at the Week is my place where I tend to plan out my blog posts for the following week, so I like that it’s still included.

KIT = Keeping It All Together

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The KITLife Planner has a great Welcome Page for each month that talks about Wellness, Food and Extra Tidbits to keep you motivated and you still get your Quarter Check-ins every 3 months as you have in previous planners.  I love the simplicity in this planner in that it takes you to the last day of the month without adding extra bulk, unless you purchased any of the add-ins I mentioned previously.  At the end of the planner you get a paper pocket on the back cover (I’ll be using this for receipts for donations) as well as a zip pouch which I plan to use to hold my post-its and stickers.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The KITLife offers gorgeous colors through out and is perfect for someone who loves a decoration or color but doesn’t really do the decorating themselves.  The planner through out offers a theme that really is visual and perfect for inspiring you to keep on top of your tasks.  I love that this is overall a Functional Planner for me.  Each year I use several planners and the KITLife is what I consider to be my “Hub-all” planner, where I plan my days out while keeping myself on task.  I list everything in this planner from my daily life (quick excerpts) and my to-do list as well as my blog and youtube channel tracking.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

 All of the KITLife Planners are designed, printed, assembled and packaged in the United States.  The 2017 Planner is 8.5″ wide by 8.75″ tall and is less than an 1″ thick.  Each planner is bound with a metal coil which is approximately 2″ in diameter.  The Planner pages are printed on 70# paper, which is sturdy and has held up to me using highlighters, felt tip pens and even some of my markers.  And, this is a traditional yearly planner that begins on January 1st and ends on December 31st.

Walk through the product layout and get an overview in my video here:

The KITLife Planner is one of my favorites because it is something I can use for my entire life’s organization.  Like I’ve mentioned before, I use several planners at any given moment, but my KITLife Planner is my hub for EVERYTHING – my personal and family schedule & appointments, to-do’s, blog and YouTube and so much more.  Since it is not quite 2017 yet, I’ll come back in a few months and share how I have been utilizing this planner so you can get an idea on what might work for you.

So – what about you?  Are you a planner addict like me?  Do you think this planner would work for you in planning and keeping you organized?

I love getting flowers for Anniversaries, Birthdays, Mother’s Day or “Just Because”, but I’m always open to fun ideas and little things that make these occasions fun, exciting and sentimental.  While flowers are nice, I love finding products that are practical and will have a purpose.  This year, I wanted to share a few items that I have been loving lately that would make GREAT Mother’s Day gifts.  Whether you are buying this as a treat for yourself or making the day of that special mommy in your life, these gifts are definitely some that will make any woman happy.  Read on if you want to check out this round up of Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.

I have had my fair share of great Mother’s Day gifts.  My husband and I are so in-tune with one another that we usually know exactly the gift we want to get for one another or something that is practical and we’ll get a lot of use out of.  My goal for this list is to offer a variety of goodies for any woman, whether the stay-at-home or work-from-home mom, busy business woman or the granny with style, these gifts will surely please.

Let’s start with a little makeup – shall we?  I recently was introduced to Youngblood Cosmetics, a beautiful line of mineral cosmetics created by Pauline Youngblood.  From Foundation to lipstick and everything in between, Youngblood Cosmetics offers a wide range of color cosmetics that is made with quality ingredients and great black and chic packaging.  I have been using a few of the products from the line and look forward to trying more.  Anything from Youngblood is gorgeous, but two of my favorites is the Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow Quad in Shanghai Nights ($43 USD) and Mineral Radiance Compact (pictured) in Splendor ($43 USD).  Each or any of the products are perfect for the sophisticated woman that is looking to add a little color to their life or the makeup and beauty loving mom that wants to try something new.

A great cleansing oil and a fantastic mud mask is perfect for that mother in your life.  One of my favorite gifts to give to my favorite gals is the Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for Face and Body so I just had to include the Fango Active Duo Set as a gift option.  This two piece set retails for $60 USD but the Fango Active Radiance Facial Oil retails for $60 on it’s own, so it’s like you get a free product or gift with purchase.  This set is gorgeous and I love how Borghese products display on the vanity.  The Radiance Facial Oil has a blend of botanical oils that help to transform the skin’s texture, soothe dull and dry skin and nourish and restore lipid loss due to aging and environmental damage.  The Fango Active Mud for Face and Body is one of my holy grail masks, offering a detoxifying mineral-rich mask that hydrates and firms the skin while reducing fine lines and providing you with smooth and toned skin.  Paired together, this not only makes a wonderful gift – but a great treat for anyone.

Can we just talk about the design of this unit for a second?  My gosh, it’s so pretty and girly and would make the most wonderful Mother’s Day gift for any mom.  The Michael Todd Soniclear Petite is one of my favorite skin cleansing tools.  I have raved about it time and time again here on my site and would recommend ANY of these units for a gift.   This cleansing tool is the petite version, smaller than the original and the elite but perfect for travel and comes with a universal USB enabled charger which makes this great for those on the go.  It’s a waterproof unit with 3 speeds to help tailor to your cleansing needs and is antimicrobial.  What makes it so great is not only the design (and the pattern) but that this product is reasonably priced at just $109.00.  I seriously wouldn’t mind unwrapping one of these as a gift and I know it would make a fabulous present for anyone.

I wrote about these two products from LATHER on my blog a few weeks back and they continue to be favorites of mine so I know they would make any mom or mom to be happy.  The LATHER coconut creme body whip ($22 USD) is one of my favorite body butter / lotions to date.  I have used MANY, trust me, and I find that it not only smells yummy – it moisturizes my skin wonderfully and leaves a light fragrance that is so delish.  This body creme is silky and whipped to perfection and my skin is left soft and hydrated for hours.  This is the perfect creme for any mom or mom to be.  I highly suggest this as a gift to that “mom to be” because this would make a great body creme to lather on the body while pregnant too.  The Vanilla & Argan Lip Scrub ($10 USD) is a must have for anyone.  It is moisturizing and tastes delicious and sloths away any dry skin on your lips leaving them plump and soft for your favorite lip product or for kiss… teehee.  What’s great about these products is that they come from a great brand and are made with quality products.

With the summer months just around the bend, nothing says beachy and ready for some sun like a great tote.  This gorgeous striped Sportswear Tote by Helly Hansen ($50 USD) is lightweight and the perfect bag to store your everyday essentials for all your summer fun activities.  It’s available in three different colors:  Navy, Aquamarine and Sorbet and has a shoulder strap and carry handles.  Marine stripe fabric and detailing give this tote the perfect look for sporting and toting around this summer.  As a handbag lover, I know that I would love to get this quality made bag as a gift this Mother’s Day.

The next gift is one of my favorites… for moms like me who like to take their hair ties and rubber bands and turn them into an unsightly fashion statement as we wear them on our wrists.  The Bittersweet Hair Tie Bracelet ($45 USD) was created by Maria Shireen – a functional fashion accessories company.  It was a gift from her husband as he had it designed and created so that she could  eliminate the pressure on her wrist from the elastic bands but also make her hair tie look like a stylish bracelet, by creating a channel that holds the hair tie in place.  Hello – total genius, simple, unique but functional.  This bracelet has literally changed my fashion game up hugely.  If you have seen any of my outfit posts here on the blog – then you know that I have turned my many hair ties into the ugliest thing to grace my wrist, but I NEED them at a moments notice so I keep them handy that way.  Now with the Bittersweet bangle I can literally look fashion forward without being a fashion faux pas.  This literally makes a great gift for any mom and I know they will make use of this bangle as much as I do.  I love it so much – I have my eyes on the gold and rose gold too.

You can’t go wrong with buying your favorite mom a perfume for Mother’s Day and Pacifica Beauty offers a set of three for just $19 USD.  The Daydreamer Roll-On Trio offers three delectable scents that would make any mother happy.  Tuscan Blood Orange, Tahitian Gardenia and Indian Coconut Nectar (one of my favorites) this set offers a roll-on perfume for everyone.  Pick up the whole set and gift it together or break up the set and make three mother’s happy this Mother’s Day.  Pacifica offers cruelty free products and are available on their website: Pacificabeauty.com, Target and Ulta stores.

Now, of course – I know there are moms out there that may be stationery, planner, pen or paper addicts… like me.  So, I wanted to make sure that I included something that would satisfy those moms too.  I LOVE pens and some of my favorites come from PenGems and from their signature collection.  I probably have 8 or 10 of them and I love them not only because of the way they write, but because they are beautiful, stylish and just a great statement to any planner, purse or notebook.  Pens, pencils and notebooks can be great gifts for mom from children or grandchildren.  I love searching through Target’s One Spot Dollar Spot section for cute notebooks, pens and pencils as well to give as gifts.  You can get a great selection for about $1 to $3 and you’re bound to find something you will enjoy as well as the favorite mother(s) in your life.  These kinds of gifts are easy to personalize and make great little presents to open.

Of course, we can’t leave out the techie gadgets and nothing says awesome like the gift of a camera.  The Sony RX100 iv ($950.00) is the perfect gift to give that will help that special mom capture every moment that her family has.  It’s compact and powerful.  With the ability to capture images in 21MP at up to 16 frames per second and record videos in 4K or HD – this is the perfect camera for a beginner or camera enthusiast, offering an impressive compact camera for every day use or for special occasions.

Whatever gift you decide to get that mom or moms in your life, I’m sure it will be wonderful.  These are just a little suggestions of products and goodies I’ve been loving lately.  Of course, as I mentioned previously – I love flowers and welcome them with open arms (especially my favorites) but when you want to think a little outside of the box, some of these presents would be perfect gifts for your loved one.  I look forward to Mother’s Day each year because it reminds me that being a Mommy is so much more than presents – it’s love and happiness year round.  I look forward to my sons making me beautiful handmade cards that take them hours to complete and while Mother’s Day is everyday in my house, I think it’s a day worth celebrating.  Besides, I wouldn’t be a mother myself without the help from my mom and those that have come before me… right?

Happy Day!  I finally after a long wait got my Erin Condren Life Planner for 2016 in the mail and have had some time to make use of it before posting this review.  There’s a lot for me to cover in this review including my thoughts and experience with the ECLP Customer Service team so if you’re interested in it all – click the video here and check it out.

This is my second ECLP planner over the years and I was quite excited to get my hands on the gold version, especially since I had some credits that I could use towards my purchase.  I’m enjoying the Horizontal layout in comparison to the vertical layout which I’m truly  not a fan of and I do love all the gold that this planner sports.  Customer service was not a great thing to deal with and I explain it all in my video (embedded below).  I also noticed that the planners paper quality is not as good as my original was – it seems like the paper is thinner, but ultimately I’m able to make it work.

If you’re interested in learning all about the ECLP, my experience and also take a look into my planner, check out the video above.

I will be using this planner as my purse planner since it’s smaller than my Keeping It Together planner or KITLife Planner.  It works for scheduling on the go and fits perfectly in my purse so it really is a great item to have.  I’m not quite sure I’ll be purchasing from Erin Condren again, but while I’m using the planner – I’ll make the best out of it.

What about you?  What planner are you using this year if you do use one?  Have you tried the ECLP before?
