These Bags are BUILT for the Holidays: City Carryall #Review + #Giveaway #MBPHGG16

Thank you to BUILT for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.

Got a lot to carry? I know I do! I can't go anywhere without feeling like I have to bring the entire world along with me. I'm you're average mom, who has way too much to carry. I am often leaving the house with kids in tow, a diaper bag, a handbag, and usually some type of tote bag. Why so many bags? I need room for everyone's stuff. Does 'Mom, will you hold this for me?' sound familiar? If I had a dollar for every item I had to hold and tote along for my kids and my husband, I'd be a rich woman!

BUILT is making my life a little easier these days, with their awesome neoprene products! BUILT was founded in 2003 by three friends, John Roscoe Swartz, Aaron Lown and Carter Weiss. They found a common bond in their passion for innovative design, well-crafted goods, and their enjoyment of food & wine. This led them to the use of Neoprene and the creation of BUILT’s definitive Two-Bottle Wine Tote.

With an inventive design team, BUILT has expanded upon its original creation. Offering an entire collection of goods that provide a fresh take on everyday gourmet and baby essentials combining both function and fashion with neoprene.

I received the adorable City Carryall in Plum Dot from BUILT.

I love totes, and this pretty carryall bag is right up my alley. It's a great design with a pretty pattern, in some of my favorite colors! I love the pattern on the bag- it's so peppy and modern. I'm not usually one to carry a bag like this, but the design is just too cute to pass by. Not only does the bag look great, it's super functional for my busy, busy mom life. I am always on the go- to school, to church, to weekly activities with the kids, running errands, etc. I don't live in a big city, but if I did (NYC, holla!), I would use this awesome carryall everywhere!

The bag is super durable. It's made from neoprene, which is amazing! Neoprene is what they use to make wetsuits, so it helps to keep things warm and dry. The bag is very lightweight, so it's easy to carry, and it has a ton of room for whatever you might need to carry along with you.

The bag has an inner pocket with a snap closure, and tons of room inside!

I just got back from a trip, and I took this bag along with me. It was the perfect carry-on bag for my flight, and was easy to carry around with me. It's also a great bag for trips in the car! It can hold so many things, and I can always quickly find what I need in there.

Getting ready to head out of town, and taking the BUILT City Carryall with me on the plane!

This bag is a must for moms! It's also great to take your work to the office in, perfect for teachers, or any working professional. Love reusable shopping bags? Make this bag your new shopping tote- you'll love how many things you can safely pack inside of it, and how easy it is to carry! It's also squishable, can fold up, and looks great anywhere and any way you choose to use it!

Fashion and function collide in this light-weight, ultra-durable tote bag. The City Carryall helps keep daily essentials together in one fun, stylish package! Made from durable neoprene (the wetsuit material) and features high-quality faux leather straps and zipper closure. Includes an interior pocket, perfect for your keys, wallet, smartphone and more. Folds flat when not in use for easy storage. Wipes clean.

*Also available in black and granite
