What's in my eBag: a giveaway

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed, however, are mine and that of The Caro Diaries. 

When I was preparing myself to make the move to New York for the summer, I knew I needed a fantastic bag for the office. Something that said serious, but not trying to hard; fun, but gets down to business; fashion-forward, but I have other strengths. And I looked and I looked and I looked and I couldn't find a bag that was a) big enough to hold my laptop, planner, and everything else I would take with me on a daily basis, b) cute enough for my standards, and c) within my very limited unpaid intern lifestyle budget.
<a sneak peek at tomorrow's post>


So when I discovered eBags, it opened up a whole new world of affordability and fashion for me. I knew I loved the look of some of my favorite designers like Kate Spade New York, Rebecca Minkoff and Michael Kors handbags, but I couldn't justify the price on my salary of $0/month, and so discovering eBags was a dream come true! eBags has a variety of designer handbags for a lot less than department store prices, and a special rewards program where rewards members receive at least 5% back in rewards on every purchase! You can then use these points towards another purchase, so you're practically saving yourself money which I love! 

So when eBags offered to send me a bag for the office this summer, I knew I had to choose this Michael Kors bag that I've had my eye on for months - and at that price, how could I say no?! Plus, I got to check off 'pop of color' off my summer bag checklist.


Check out how I stuff my bag every morning! 



My wallet, cosmetics pouch, hand sanitizer and gum go with me everywhere - this is New York after all! My sunglasses are usually perched on top my head, but I'll usually throw my sunglasses case in there too. If I'm working, my laptop fits perfectly in the laptop pocket (yes, this handbag has a laptop pocket!), and depending on if I'm at work or not, I usually have at least one of my planners. (If I'm exploring or using my days off to blog, my KSNY planner jumps right in the bag too!) 

My trusty Venus Snap stays in my purse too because you never know when you need a quick shave, and like I said.. this is New York! I also, obviously, throw my fave lip color at the time in too because you never know when a photo op comes up! Lastly, my business cards are a must-have in my handbag, and I usually keep them in an inside pocket just in case I run into someone or bring my blog up in a conversation (although I think the only time I've used these are at the HerConference last weekend!) 

So this bag fits just about everything in it - including my kindle for subway rides, headphones so no one bothers me, and hundreds of mints and pens because it's my handbag let's be real. 

Obsessed with this bag as much as I am? Well lucky for you, eBags and I teamed up to give away a $100 gift card for eBags! That can either buy you something nice, or you can add your own cash to it and buy yourself something bigger like this MK must-have! The giveaway runs until next Tuesday at 11:59 pm.. good luck!

  43. I would use the gift card to indulge myself with a new purse!! I haven't gotten a new one in over 4 years so it's very obvious that my purse I have now looks like it's gone through a war.
