Back To School Guide: Sugarbooger Day Tripper Tote, Matryoshka Doll {Review & Giveaway}

Featured Sponsor
I've been on a quest for a new everyday bag that would be just right for running the kids to their activities and very, very soon, taking them to school. A purse isn't quite big enough, but a diaper bag is just too big. Sugarbooger by o.r.e. offers the Day Tripper Tote that I have found to be perfect bag.
About o.r.e.
Lisa Lowe started o.r.e. with a bold line of graphically innovative recycled-rubber bulletin boards that were designed, assembled, and shipped from her garage in Long Beach, California.
Fast forward nearly 20 years, o.r.e.'s focus of fun + functional has not changed and they have grown their brand collections above and beyond bulletin boards to include lots more items  for everyday living. Whether you’re a mom needing to be fashionably organized, a pet-owner looking for a better feeding solution, a college student in need of cool shower curtain to spruce up an apartment bathroom, or you’re just looking for a functional bag to take on vacation,  their hopes is that o.r.e. is an easy place for consumers to find all their products you have in mind – and then some. 
So what does "o.r.e." mean? It's simply their way of saying, "All Designs Are Original."

ace and friends thoughts 
If you haven't noticed, I have a small obsession with Matryoshka Dolls (more commonly know as the Russian stacking dolls), so I was immediately drawn to this delightful print. As I perused the expansive collection on o.r.e.'s site, I immediately fell in love with the Day Tripper Tote. Based on the measurement, I felt this would be the bag I needed for my everyday errands. When it arrived, I was even more impressed with the print, the style and durability of the bag than online. So, was my first impression long-lasting. I took it with me to a family picnic and felt that would be the ideal opportunity to give this bag a run for it's money. After an all-day affair at the state park, the bag worked out perfectly. I was able to fit my main necessities such as phone, wallet, camera, wipes, sunglasses and water bottle with LOTS of room to spare. The kids had left over crafts from the day at the park and upon leaving, I was able to a carry four big drawing books and markers too. I never knew I could LOVE  a bag, but the Day Tripper Tote has won my heart. xoxo.
