As a blogger, I am so very thankful that the World is my office. I literally can take my laptop (or phone, or both) and writing tools with me and work anywhere I want. But, being able to carry all of my blogger necessities is not always easy, until now. Today, I introduce you to the American Shield Granite 25 Backpack. My go-to to carry all of my blogger (or even hiking and travel) necessities.

My Favorite Blogging Companion

Everyone knows that when it comes to blogging on the go, a camera and laptop (or some sort of writing tool) is a must. But for me, I am always looking for something to hold my things securely. Recently I was contacted by American Shield to try out their Granite 25 Backpack and I’m not only impressed, but I’m also loving it. If you’re looking for something that is not only classy and stylish but completely functional – this is the bag for you. I’ve been using it as my blogger bag and it’s been the best backpack for my needs.

What makes this backpack so special?

The Granite 25 Backpack from American Shield is an elegant and timeless design. It offers you versatility with spacious room and can be used for functional or multi-purpose needs. The bag is designed and made in the USA. The Granite 25 features Oxford Fabric (that’s tough, strong and durable) with textile lining. You have beautiful genuine leather accents on the buckles that are gorgeous and smell absolutely amazing. You get a flap + press stud (magnet) + drawstring opening to ensure that you secure your belongings on the go. The magnetic closure is very strong and sturdy. The straps are padded for comfort and the back is also padded. There is also a 15″ laptop compartment, which comes in handy on days I want to take my laptop with me.

Lots of pockets to hold all of your things!

The bag features a total of 8 small inner pockets (perfect for pens, etc.), 1 front pocket, 2 external side pockets (my favorite place to put my cell phone or my water bottles), 1 back pocket and one strap pocket (perfect for your jump drive or memory cards, house key or pocket change). It’s comfortable to use, with adjustable straps and even comes equipped with a top handle.

Is the Granite 25 only available in black?

The Granite 25 Backpack is currently available in Black & Brown, Green, Coffee and Black (which I own). It’s made with quality materials so it will hold up to the stress you put on it. And, trust me when I say I put stress on the backpack. I have taken this backpack with me everywhere and it’s been a great companion.

What makes this backpack a favorite of mine?

My favorite part about this backpack is how comfortable it is on my shoulders. I suffer from back problems and holding a backpack on my shoulders and back for long periods of time can cause much strain. But, my Granite 25 is so comfortable on my back and helps to evenly proportion my items on my back so I can hold it comfortably. As I mentioned before, the back is also padded which makes it comfortable to wear. If I decide I don’t want to hold it on my back, I can use the top handle and hold it in my hands.

How much is it?

The Granite 25 backpack retails for $249.00. Yes, it’s a pretty hefty price tag, but absolutely worth the investment. The back is made of quality materials and as I mentioned before, it’s sturdy and will be a work horse for you. American Shield also offers a Limited Guarantee.

Granite 25 Backpack Sizing Dimensions

Length – 16.6 inches, Height – 13 inches and Depth – 7 inches (15.6x13x7) – (42cm x 33cm x 17cm)

The American Shield Granite 25 is a backpack worth looking into. As a planner girl, I find that I am always looking for a bag that I can grab all of my things and head on out. This backpack offers me the versatility to be able to hold A LOT of things that don’t need to be work related, so I can grab whatever I need at that moment and throw it in there.

This could be your Go-To backpack!

Did I mention that this makes a great bag for hiking, traveling or exploring? Well, it surely does. The backpack can hold so many things, that it makes it ideal for use as your go-to bag for any occasion. I’m looking forward to using this backpack for so many other uses. I think this would also make a fabulous graduation gift for that graduate that needs something good to carry all of their school books or work-related items.

I am so beyond impressed with the quality of this backpack and I’ve been raving about it to everyone I know. It’s worth the price point when you get a backpack that’s gonna last. But I think one of the biggest qualities that this backpack has for me, is how it looks. This could easily be an executive style bag. It doesn’t look like a school kid’s backpack and could be used as a briefcase for an executive. It’s classy and very nice. I also love that it could be used for both women and men.

I can’t seem to figure out why I love pairing jeans with a t-shirt, but it’s a love of mine I can’t seem to overcome.  The great thing about wearing jeans (in any wash, really) is that you can dress it up or down.  Jeans pants are seriously that one staple item in the closet that goes with just about anything.  I’m all about that casual flair and vibe this outfit gives off and while it may not be other’s cup of tea, I’ll rock it.

As a busy mom, I am usually rocking out a messy bun (we call it a tita bun here in Hawaii), shorts and a t-shirt on a daily basis, but I like to take my casualness and turn it up, if even only a notch. lol

Potter what?

As many of you know, I’m a total Potter Head.  No, I’m not talking about the green stuff, I mean Harry Potter, silly… lol.  This tee from the Harry Potter Collection was found at Walmart and was less than $10, so it was not only a bargain, but I fell in love with it.  And, did I mention that it is a 2XL?  It’s nice and slouchy on me (which I enjoy) and it fits, woohoo!  When I wear any of my Harry Potter tees, I’m not sure why but I tend to pair my outfits with my Alex and Ani bracelets.  I think they go well together and just offer great vibes all around.

The Outfit Details

Besides my Harry Potter Hogwarts Alumni Tee, I’m also using Refuge Skinny Jeans from Charlotte Russe in a size 16.  These jeans are super comfy and I love the dark wash of the denim.  They are also high-waisted which is perfect for my tummy area.  To bump up this casual outfit a little more to something dressier and sexier, I added a pair of Hide and Peep Heels in Black from a local store here in Hawaii called Jeans Warehouse. My accessories are quite simplistic (as they usually are) so as I mentioned above I am using my Alex and Ani Bracelets with this outfit.  For my watch, I’m using one of my Invicta Angel’s with a Black Silicone band and to carry all my mommy gear and essentials, I have been using my Coach Backpack.  For sunglasses, I’m using a pretty affordable pair from Zoo York shades.

My Makeup

My makeup was quite simplistic as it usually is.  I’ve been loving a fresh look with just mascara and a lippy lately.  I’ve been also loving the Essence Cosmetics Water Kiss Glossy Lip Colors.  I’m using a blend of Aquatic Chic and Mermaid Diary on my lips.  Of course, for mascara my go-to’s are the L’Oreal Voluminous Base topped with the Essence Cosmetics The False Lash Mascara, Lash Princess and Volume Stylist.  Can you see a trend here?  I really am a HUGE fan of Essence and I’m so glad that we have an Ulta here now so I can actually buy their products on island.  For my brows, I’m using the Beauty Junkees Tinted Brow Gel (another go-to).
