A Few Of My (new) Favorite Things

I ordered this camera bag off of Etsy awhile ago and it came just now! I LOVE it. The outside is made from 100% leather and canvas and the inside holds two lenses and a DSLR camera comfortably.

I love all the zippered pockets and especially this little change purse that it came with, making it really easy to only bring one bag instead of both a camera bag plus a purse wherever you go. Perfect for a food blogger on the go, right?

I got this bag because I’m horrible about just sticking my nice camera in my purse along with the entire everything else whenever I go out. I mean, who KNOWS what’s in that black hole of a purse of mine. I’ve been known to tote around sweet potatoes, books, planners and apples before. Not to mention lenses and even the occasional laptop. It’s becoming a problem really. Now, I only have to carry one bag and my life be much simpler and more organized. This isn’t a company sponsored review—I purchased this bag with my own money and just wanted to share it with you guys. Be sure to check out PorteenGear—Robyn makes a bunch of these with different vintage prints…I love them all!
And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, look what else came in the mail today:

I guess it’s time to change my Brita filter….thanks, mom.

I just read your last post saying you were going to be in Austin! I live just a few hrs from there and two of your loyal readers live there– just wondering if you’re up for a meet up? We would love that!

I want to SO much but I honestly just don’t know if we will have time. In a span of three days, we are going to Austin, College Station and East Texas…Almanzo sort of has this planned down to the HOUR. However, if any Aggies are going to the first home football game—come say hi, I’ll be there! ;)

Ahh! My boy’s Dad and step mom live in College Station…weird. And we went to school in Austin. You will love it. Seriously, that place has my heart.

Oh neat! That’s exactly what I need… and so cute, too! And hmmm… when was the last time I changed my Brita filter?

I love the review of something you bought yourself. I need to get something like to organize stuff since I use my old Trader Joe’s canvas bag to throw stuff in.

Haha! Your mom is funny. :) My mom does stuff like that, too. Love the new camera bag! I need to invest in something like that. Two bags often gets cumbersome.

Haha, I wish someone would remind me to change my Brita filter… I change it like, once a year. Gross!

Super cute camera bag. I do the same thing….throw my camera in my purse! I’m sure not so good for the camera.
Have a great evening:)

That bag is clutch! Genius to have a bag that can tote around a DSLR or 40D EOS or other big camera!

Great bag. I have a friend who sells her stuff on Etsy.

I can’t comment on your Zucchini Pizza Post!! It says “Link is broken” ! But…I LOVE it… you know, it’s SO simple-like …well, it would take me FOREVER to make – but I mean simple in the ingredients…my pizzas are always LOADED with tomatoe sauce, CHEESE…and more sauce and more cheese ;)…veggies, ham, etc.
How many servings? I always just eat the whole thing?!

LOVE that bag! My DSLR wants one now too. Maybe I’ll have to buy her one… :) You just created a shopping monster, Jenna!

Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine August 6, 2010 at 7:24 pm

I change my filter exactly on time! lol :) I just want to be safe and all.

The bag is indeed very cute. My camera is bulky and putting in my purse is troublesome at times. I wish I had a bag like that to put it in–so neat!

What a great bag! I definitely saw it and thought woah cute purse! Love it. And your mom… hilarious. Things like that totally make my day.

Oh moms! Gotta love ‘em! :0)

Ashley August 6, 2010 at 9:22 pm

OMG, I really need to get one of these. It is super cute and I imagine that I would bring my DSLR around more often in a bag like that. I usually end up bringing my point and shoot along instead for that reason.

How big is that bag? I’ve been looking for a camera bag/purse too, but not one that is too bulky. Would you mind posting measurements or a photo of a person holding it so we can see the size? Thanks!

I think your mom is absolutely precious. Love random packages from home! :D

That is so cute of your mom to do- moms are the best!

P.S. Love the bag!

Your mom is amazing.
And if you post that every time, I’ll change mine on schedule too. yay!

Katie August 9, 2010 at 1:11 pm

moms are the best because they do things like send us new brita filters when it’s time to change them. :)
