Timbuk2 Giveaway

At the Sea Otter Classic, I had the pleasure of meeting Ann from Timbuk2. Their tent was next to ours, so we were neighbors for 4 days. Ann is a Tough Chik and she feel in love with the Zip Up Hoodie.
Ann and Myself

Ann asked for my business card and said she was going to put a bag in the mail for me. I was floored. I have received free bars and bath salts over the year, but never a bag! A few days later, a box came with not 1 bag, but 2! Imagine my surprise. Ann sent me the Harriet Shoulder Bag and the Minnie Rae Shoulder Bag!

A little back story, I am designer bag girl. I live for a nice Michael Kors bag. I am in love with my Furla bag I bought in Italy, so I wasn't sure how I would feel about a nylon bag. I decided that my trip to UT, NV and AZ would be a good test and let me tell you, I LOVE THE HARRIET BAG! It was perfect! I carry a little too much stuff for the Minnie Rae (I would love to be that girl, but I am not) but Harriet and I became BFFs!
