How We Carry Tukula & A Giveaway

****Congrats to the giveaway winner Janelle from LeeMaeMarie!!*****

Being the founder of tukula I have received (or taken from inventory) a lot of bags.
After using each bag on a daily basis I feel like they all have very different uses so I thought I would share my thoughts on how each bag could be best used...

If you're like me and don't use a big bag for day to day use the Shami Bag is a good fit for you! I use this one most days to hold my wallet, keys, chap-stick, a pen and post-its...and it's perfect. I normally see it used as a shoulder bag but I wear mine cross-body more often. I like wearing it cross-body because I'm shorter and the bottom of most cross body bags end up hitting my knee but the shami doesn't.

The sling bag is an all time favorite amongst tourists in uganda and I have even seen that this style is even popular amongst tourists in asia as well. Living on the east coast it's easy for us to do day trips to cities like DC, NYC, and Philly and this bag is perfect for long days out. It's best worn as a cross-body bag as well and can usually fit all of the daily necessities as well as a light jacket or book.

The tote bag has become an all-time favorite of mine. We spent a few days in Cape-May New Jersey at the beach and it was the perfect bag for the trip! With the weather being so unpredictable theses days here in PA it's been great for packing sunscreen, a sweater, a bottle of water, and umbrella along with all the daily necessities. Most larger bags have thicker fabric or are lined with foam but the tote bags has a light weight cotton fabric that makes it not feel bulky even when you're carrying a lot.

I feel like most women have a favorite bag and I love hearing about what makes them their favorite bag. So as a special spring treat I'm going to be giving away my favorite bag, the new tote bag.
