Is that a lunch bag you’re carrying? (A Giveaway!)

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 4, 2008

Just recently my good friend, Lori, told me about the new lunch bag lines from Mario Batali and Elle. I was so impressed with the chic designs that I jumped on the chance to sample one of my choosing when Lori asked me.

I chose a large Elle tote from the myriad of wonderful designs, after much deliberation. They are just all so beautiful, it was hard to pick just one! Well, I received my bag today and I have to say I am anything but disappointed. This bag that I have sitting right next to me would become my new favorite handbag in a instant if it were such a thing. Honestly, it looks like one of the oversized bags I use quite often to fit all of the stuff needed for any outing with my kiddos. Do you think anyone would notice that I am carrying a lunch bag, if I chose to do so? Maybe I’ll try it!

Win it!

I like the ELLE Cathy Large Tote – Beige Plaid. How cute! I love that it is water and stain resistant – definitely important with small children.

What a stylish way to bring my lunches to school. I hate brown-bagging it.
I love the black lunch bag as it goes with everything. :-)

These are so cute and stylish! I would choose the black, because it goes with almost everything!

It is a tough choice between the black and the large beigh plaid. Black is would go with everything.. but the size on the plaid is perfect.

I would love to win the Mario Batali Insulated Messenger! I like all the extra storage it has and that it’s easy to wipe down!

Hi! The bag I would like to win is the Mario Batali Insulated Messenger. My reason for wanting this bag is not to so much carry my lunch in but that new video camera I nominated myself to win over at No Ordinary Life! It just seems safer to carry cameras and video cameras in an insulated (favorite feature)bag so as to protect them from the cold and the heat and the cushioned bag will also protect them as I travel to see my grandchildren! Fun stuff!

I would love the large Cathy tote, my favorite feature is how easy it is to clean. Sometimes the little one goes for the food herself and that isn’t always the cleanest occurrence.

I like the Mario Batali Insulated Messenger..I like how it has interior pockets for all your other things (phone, mp3, etc) and would be something my husband would use as well!

I would love to win the Elle Tamara bag in black because it is just my style!
