Spartina 449 (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

"Inspiration for Spartina 449 products begins at our seaside cottage on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. Rich in natural beauty and steeped in history, it is here our lives slow down. The windows of our home studio are framed by the towering branches of ancient live oaks and look out upon the calm waters of the Calibogue Sound. Playful dolphins, majestic shrimp boats, and soaring sailboats pass by daily on their mysterious maritime journeys. Spartina, the inspiration for our name, is the native marsh grass that graces our shores and protects our pristine beaches."
 I am absolutely in love with Spartina 449 and am so excited to share their wonderful products with you! As a new mom, I was constantly searching for the perfect bag and I thought once I found it, I would never need another one again. Wrong! I soon realized that there are a lot of bags considered to be the "perfect bag" and that's why we need so many. Depending on the day and what I am doing will determine the bag I choose. Whether I am going on a date, a hike, to the park, or on a trip, I pick a bag that will keep me organized while looking cute! I told this to my husband the other day, but I don't think he was as thrilled as I was!
Whatever you need Spartina 449 has it! They have adorable handbags, which include: Shoulder Bags, Totes, Satchels, Back Packs, Travel Bags, and Bucket Bags. And if you think that is a lot, there are more products under each category! Seriously, this store is bag heaven!
I travel a lot to visit family, so I chose to review one of Spartina 449's Travel Bags and I absolutely LOVE it! The print of the Gracie Duffle Bag below is extremely stylish, and puts my old duffle bags to shame. I brought this duffle bag to Moab a couple weeks ago, then to Winter Park and really enjoyed the roominess to the bag. There are two open pockets and one zipper pocket inside, along with a zipper pocket on the outside. There's also six metal feet on the bottom of the bag and a removable shoulder strap. This is the perfect travel bag for a short trip and is also a perfect size bag to use as a carry on.
What I really like about Spartina 449 is that I can purchase different products from the same collection. For instance, I would love to own a Gracie 13" laptop cover and Gracie Clutch because they are adorable, and would look so good with the Gracie Duffle Bag.
Other products that I just adore:
Island Girl iPad Cover
This is the cover I'm going to get when I get my iPad!
Sarah Snap Wallet
I like to switch out my wallets every few months for a change, and I think this one would be perfect!
I just recently got new eyeglasses and would love this cute, handy, protected pouch.
