Mommin’ Ain’t Easy, But it is a Whole Lot Easier with Baggallini: A Review of the 3 in 1 Backpack

Savannah Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, Tackles Motherhood with Baggallini 3 in 1 Backpack, mom style, women's fashion, modest outfit

Let’s get real for a minute.

No matter how much we love Motherhood and being a mother, it is not always easy. It truly is a job in itself and, while I am happy to take on this job daily, I am always looking for ways to make it just a little bit easier.

Luckily, I know that I can depend on one of my favorite handbag companies, Baggallini, to always have something that is both stylish and functional. They have done it again with the most amazing bag to meet all of my Mom needs.

Now that Vivi is getting older, I don’t have to bring as much stuff with me to meet her needs. She does still require some extra supplies, though, so I needed something that would work as an addition to my outfit, as well as meet my needs as a Mother. The perfect bag for that job was the 3 in 1 Backpack.

I decided to give it a test drive this past weekend on a particularly warm day. We wanted to make the most of the weather so we packed up the 3 in 1 Backpack and headed out the door. For this outing, we decided to head to our local outlet mall to do a little playing at the park, grab a snack, and maybe do a little shopping. In the bag I made sure to pack my water bottle, snacks for Vivi, a change of clothes, wipes, as well as my other handbag necessities. With all of the pockets and zippers, I was able to keep everything very organized and right at my finger tips. The outside pocket was great for easy snack access, my water bottle fit nicely on a side pocket, and the front zipper was the perfect spot to slide in my cell phone.

So besides the obvious, what other benefits does this amazing bag include? Taking a quick peek on the Baggallini website,  I was able to pull this list of amazing features:

  • Lightweight, water-resistant nylon or printed fabric
  • Removable wristlet has 3 card slots
  • Removable wristlet dimensions: 7.5″ W X 4.5″ H
  • Interior organization and multifunctional pockets
  • Quick access phone pocket
  • Fits iPhone 8 & iPhone plus
  • Interior tablet pocket
  • Fits up to 8″ tablet
  • Key loop
  • Sleeve for luggage handle
  • RFID protection
  • 56″ removable, adjustable straps convert from crossbody to backpack
  • 4.5″ drop length
  • Care instructions: Wipe clean with a damp cloth
  • Exterior dimensions: 15.5″ W x 12.5″ H x 4″ D
  • Weight: 1 lb. 7.5 oz.
  • 1 year warranty against manufacturer’s defects

The feature that I enjoyed most was definitely the fact that this was a 3 in 1 backpack. I literally used every option on our day out and it was so nice! The strap could be easily lengthened or shortened so that I could use it as a crossbody, shoulder bag, or simply hang onto the handles. Perhaps the most unique way to carry the bag was as a backpack. With easy to clip straps and a top loop, the bag quickly and easily became a backpack leaving me hands free to chase Vivi.

This has definitely become our go-to bag for family outings. I love the sleek design, the color literally matches with everything, and you can not beat the ease and accessibility. I cannot recommend the 3 in 1 Backpack enough and I encourage you to add this bag to your collection. As Mothers, we need all the help we can get and Baggallini definitely helps to meet all of those needs.

February Favorites

.

Hello Friends!

It is hard to believe that another month has come and gone, but here we are are already finished with the month of February! January may have dragged, but February definitely flew by at our house!

If you follow me over on Instagram, you probably noticed that I did a small style challenge the week of Valentine’s Day. There was not any specific prompts, just an encouragement to dress for the holiday and build community among everyone participating. It was a lot of fun and I loved seeing everyone’s outfits. If you are interested in seeing everyone who participated, just check out the hashtag #bemrsfowlersvalentine over on Instagram and I know you will feel inspired.

Because of the style challenge, I did not do a whole lot of shopping for the month of February so, instead, I wanted to share with you a few of the outfits that I put together for the week of love. While some of the pieces I already owned, a lot of them were new and were in collaboration with one of my favorite retailers, SHEIN. They had so many amazing pieces available and I was able to put together some truly incredible outfits. I encourage you to check everything out and consider adding some of the pieces to your own wardrobe. They were all super affordable and, if you use the code 1gveras, you can save 15% on your entire purchase!

Platform Crocs

I was gifted a pair of platform Crocs this month and I have to say that I was a bit skeptical at first. I did not know how I was going to make them work in an outfit. I have to say that, after a little research on Pinterest, I gathered some ideas and now I am obsessed. The shoes were incredibly comfortable and the platform was a lot of fun to wear. While I probably won’t be wearing them everyday, they are definitely a great addition to my wardrobe and will be perfect when I have to do a lot of walking. My advice to you should you decide to purchase is just incorporate them into what you would normally wear. For me, pattern-mixing is something that I do a lot so I made that the focus of my outfit instead of the shoes. By doing that, the shoes compliment the pieces and everything comes together for a chic, and comfy, look.

Tiger Midi Dress

One piece that I did purchase this month was this absolutely amazing, tiger print dress from ASOS. I saw it on Instagram on the fabulous @onelittlemomma and I fell in love. Once I saw the price, I knew that I had to add it to my wardrobe. It was such unique piece that I knew I would be able to get a lot of wear throughout the seasons. I paired it with booties this month but I know that it will look amazing with my favorite wedges as it starts to warm up. The sleeves have buttons so they can easily be rolled up for a different, cooler look. The dress looks great with a denim jacket or even unbuttoned as a kimono. The options are unlimited! I encourage you to check out this piece and consider adding it to your wardrobe. It runs a little small so I recommend sizing down.

being mrs. fowler, savannah blogger, february favorites, valentine style, teacher outfit, modest fashion, outfit ideas, asos

Hopefully some of these favorites appeal to you as well! There was some truly great outfits that happened this month that would not have been possible without these pieces. I encourage you to check them all out and consider adding them to your wardrobe.

Mom Bossin’ with Baggallini

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

My life has been incredibly busy these last few months. From work, to events, to vacation, and holidays, we have been going non-stop!

While my life may be sheer chaos, one thing has remained a constant: my handbag!

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

I was recently gifted the Metro Backpack from Baggallini. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical at first. I am not much of a backpack girl but I really wanted something that could carry both mine and Vivi’s things, while still looking chic. Over the summer I potty trained Vivi so there was no need for a big, bulky bag. I found myself shoving a pull-up, extra pants, and snacks into my already full handbag. Something had to change.

Upon receiving the bag, I switched everything over from my own handbag, downsizing a few items, added Vivi’s things, and I was set. I made a vow to carry the bag for the entire month of October so I could form an honest opinion. I would change my bag for date or girl’s nights, but then it was right back to my Metro Backpack.

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

Since I was carrying this bag for the entire month of October, I packed it up to take it with me on my recent Disney trip. This was, by far, where the bag was most useful. With all of the compartments, pockets and zippers, I had everything I needed, remained organized, and stayed looking chic. I got so many compliments on this bag while in the park. I think people expect backpacks to be bulky or kid-oriented so the fact that this bag possessed both style and function was definitely something worth noticing. With the adjustable straps, hooks and zippers, I was able to carry it as a crossbody, a one-shoulder pack, a backpack, AND a handbag. Talk about a versatile bag! Even my husband didn’t mind holding it for me!

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

Here are all the amazing details that this backpack features:

  • Lightweight, water-resistant nylon
  • Removable RFID phone wristlet included
  • Interior organization and multifunctional pockets
  • Quick access phone pocket
  • RFID protection
  • Adjustable strap & key Loop
  • Wristlet interior has 3 card slots

Curious about RFID technology? I was too! RFID-blocking wallets are designed to help insulate you from a very particular brand of electronic pickpocketing, called RFID skimming. RFID stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, a technology that uses tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand to track items at a distance. Essentially this means that as long as your cards are inside the RFID protection pouch, your card information cannot be stolen using this technology. That is pretty nifty if you ask me!

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

All of the pockets and pouches kept me very organized while in the park. I was able to quickly find everything that I needed, which is crucial when you have a very busy three year old in when of the busiest places in the United States. I used the outside zipper to quickly access my phone, the mini zipper pouch to keep my money and cards both safe and accessible, and the back zipper to house our room keys and park tickets. It truly helped me to keep my sanity while in the park and helped me to stay very organized. I cannot recommend this bag enough, especially if you are the Mom of young children.

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

So just what all was I able to fit in this backpack, besides random receipts of course? More than you would think, that is for sure!

I had: a change of clothes and pull-ups for Vivi, wipes, a few toys, sunglasses, snacks, iPad with charger, pouch with essential female items, chap-stick, hair ties, handsanitizer, cellphone, and, in the little pouch, my card wallet and change purse. I was honestly surprised at home! We are heading back to Disney in December and the first thing that I will be packing is my Metro Backpack. It was seriously a very chic lifesaver!

being mrs. fowler, savannah mom blogger, baggallini metro backpack, disney world, toddler style

I encourage you to check out Baggallini’s Metro Backpack as well as their other chic and versatile bags. I can promise that it will be so functional, you will not want to change your bag!

Making the Best of the Rest of My Summer

Summer is just moments away from ending and school seems like it is approaching so quickly, but I am all for living in the moment and only accepting the fact that summer is over when it is actually over. You have to live with the glass half full perspective because if you don’t life can too often seem boring and almost depressing and I want to make sure that I am showing my daughter that living a happy, full ‘glass half full’ life is very, very important. So, with that being said, today I want to share with you how I am making the most of the rest of the summer! I thought it would be fun and productive to create a list of five summer goals to accomplish. I urge you all to do the same, in order to get the most out of these next couple of weeks. Here is my list:

Soak in the summer

I want to do all things summer related. So, you will probably find me eating watermelon, going to the pool, wearing all of the summer clothes, and playing with chalk outside. If you have already knocked out your summer to do list, I highly recommend making another one. Be creative and think outside the box – there really are so many fun things that you can do in the summer! If you hop over to Pinterest and type in summer bucket list, you are sure to find many fantastic lists. A few ideas that you can find on Pinterest are playing in the sprinkler, having a picnic, going to an outdoor concert, watching a movie in a drive-in theatre, dancing in the rain, and making frozen hot chocolate.

Be intentional

Because summer is ending so quickly, I want to make the most of it by being intentional. I believe that it is important to be intentional with what you do on an everyday basis, but in our generation with social media, technology, and other distractions, it can be very hard to actually accomplish this each day. If you have trouble staying intentional throughout the day, you could help yourself out by setting guidelines. Maybe set times where you can check social media, or talk on the phone, wake up early instead of sleeping the day away, and maybe even plan some rest time for yourself.

Make time for myself

I know I touched on this a bit above, but I wanted to talk about it more. Being a mom is a really amazing job and I am so lucky to do it each and every day, but what a lot of moms forget to do is to actually make time for themselves. Our kids are constantly relying on us and our health, mindset, and strength should be constantly taken care of. Having time for yourself is important so that you can re-charge each and every day. This may look different from person to person, but a few ways that you can make time for yourself is by taking a bubble bath, scheduling a massage, reading, watching your favorite TV show, or even going to workout.

Start dreaming of our new house

As some of you know, we are currently building a home in Savannah, Georgia and I am so excited about it! I’ve already been dreaming about it for a while now, but all of the progress that has been made in the past couple of weeks has gotten me so thrilled for the move! Searching for home decor has never been better and it is just so much fun. One thing I am considering is adding window films to our windows. Apparently, they are used for a few different reasons. For starters, window films add a decorative effect to ‘normal’ windows, which would be nice. They can take an ordinary window and make it look extremely unique by adding a textured look. This also adds more privacy in your home! Another great bonus of window tinting is the fact that it can help prevent excessive heat and cold, and it can also prevent harmful UV rays from entering your home. According to UHS Window Tinting and Blinds, “Since 2003, we’ve been helping residential home owners get the best protection from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Radiation from the sun is divided into three components: light that we can see, and infrared and UV rays that we can only feel. As the sun strikes glass, the window film acts as a shield that blocks harmful UV rays, as well as regulates the amount of heat that passes through the glass. In turn, the interior of your office or home will have a more comfortable temperature, even without increasing the cooling or air conditioning capacity in the room. By simply having a window film on your glass doors and windows, you can be protected from the sun and reduce your energy costs at the same time.”

Focus on health

It is easy to get off-track health and nutrition goals in the summer. It has been so hot in Georgia lately and all it seems like I have been wanting is ice cream and refreshing drinks such as sugar-filled sweet tea. You just cannot get more refreshing than that! In these next couple of weeks, I hope to get fully back on-track when it comes to my health and I am very excited to start the next school year off strong and healthy!

Taking the Guesswork out of the Best Child Care in Georgia with Quality Rated.org

The post is sponsored by GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students; however, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

As a teacher, one of the things that I value the most is the education of my own child. When my sweet Vivilyn was still growing inside of my belly I was constantly thinking about what I was going to do for her childcare. I wanted an organization that I could trust  as well as one that would provide her with the tools to be successful once she entered school. While searching the internet one day I happened to stumble upon Quality Rated.org.

Savannah Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, shares tips on child care options in Georgia with Quality Rated, Bright from the Start, GEEARS, while daughter wears Little Adventure's Dress Up, Que

Quality Rated.org is a unique website that offers parents the chance to search through child care options in the state of Georgia. There is over 5,000 state licensed and monitored child care programs within the state and finding the perfect fit for you family can be a daunting task.  With their free search tool, parents can search for childcare options based on price, distance, services offered and a Quality Rated child care programs. You can even search for a child care facility that is on your commute by clicking the “Search Along A Route” option!

Once you have searched for facilities that meet your initial criteria you can easily access each child care program’s safety and inspection reports, opening hours, prices, teacher credential and transportation options.

Quality Rated that I mentioned earlier helps parents identify child care programs within the state of Georgia that are highly quality. Child care facilities can choose to participate in the Quality Rated program. Once in the program, each child care is independently evaluated by qualified early childhood education experts to ensure that they are following the current best practices. It also ensures that they are committed to continually improving their centers and the education they offer. As a teacher, I can assure you that the realm of education is constantly changing. Over time we have learned what programs work, what children need and what is required to meet those needs. It is comforting to see that so many child care facilities in the state are working to improve what they offer to their children so they are always receiving the best possible education.

Quality Rated.org assigns stars to early education and school-age care programs that meet or exceed the minimum state requirements. Some things that look at to determine the star rating include:

  • Employing qualified and well-trained teachers
  • Providing a safe, healthy and caring environment
  • Implementing individualized instruction
  • Offering a curriculum that prepares children for kindergarten
  • A focus on both active learning and social-emotional development
  • Engaging families
  • Providing a low teacher-student ratio

A program can earn one, two, or three stars depending on the standards and benchmarks that they meet. The ratings are as follows:

One star – Program has demonstrated a commitment to meeting standards that exceed state health and safety requirements, meets several quality benchmarks, and scores sufficiently on the independent observation.

Two stars– Program has demonstrated a commitment to meeting standards that exceed state health and safety requirements, meets many quality benchmarks, and scores well on the independent observation.

Three stars – Program has demonstrated a commitment to meeting standards that exceed state health and safety requirements, meets numerous quality benchmarks, and scores high on the independent observation.

Another thing that I love about the Quality Rated tool is that it allows you to look at all Child Care providers in the state, even if they are not Quality Rated. This includes licensed and license-exempt child care providers in Georgia. For each of them you get a comprehensive overview so that you can make the best possible child care choice for your child. This includes all child care providers, pre-k programs and summer camps within the state of Georgia.

The End of an Era: One Last Trip to Toys ‘R’ Us

Savannah Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, Toys R Us Closing Photoshoot,

Curiosity. Wonder. Excitement.

Those are all the things that come to mind when I watch my sweet daughter run around Toys ‘R’ Us. It is sad to think that in just a few years, my daughter will never remember visiting a Toys “R” Us location.

Savannah Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, Toys R Us Closing Photoshoot,

These last few years, we have seen so much growth in our economy. New stores, restaurants and hotels seem to be popping up every other week in my city. It is sad that even though we have seen so much growth, a huge part of so many of our childhood is coming to an end.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen that all of Toys ‘R’ Us stores will be closing in a very short time. In the short time that I have had my daughter we have thoroughly enjoyed all of our visits to this amazing store. When I first found out that I was pregnant, I knew that I wanted to register at Babys ‘R’ Us. When it came time for me to register I remember walking around the store with that scanner, thinking about all of the things that I would need for Vivi. It was so exciting to think about her strolling around in her car seat, eating in her high chair, and carrying around all of her necessities in her diaper bag. As she got older, we would take her to actually play with the toys. We have always let Vivi have fun running around, playing with all of the displays and picking out a special surprise. It became a must-do on our trips into Savannah and it was something that my little family always enjoyed.

When I found out that the store was closing, I knew that I needed to make just one more trip to document such a nostalgic part of childhood. There will be no other words to this post to read. It was simply meant to capture this sweet, sweet moment from my daughter’s childhood. I hope that she enjoys this memory because I will definitely miss the excitement on her face walking through the doors of our Toys ‘R’ Us store.

Pink Hues and Life Updates

Savannah Mom Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, styles a Members Only Jacket, mom style, teacher style, modest style, casual outfit

Hello my Beautiful Friends! Life has been so absolutely crazy lately and I just wanted to take the time to fill all of you in!

Savannah Mom Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, styles a Members Only Jacket, mom style, teacher style, modest style, casual outfit

First up, I am done with school for the summer! Teaching is hard and definitely a stressful job so I always look forward to those few weeks in the summer when I can take some time for myself. We have a family vacation to Disney planned in just one short week, we are planning to go to Charleston for my birthday, and I am hoping that we can squeeze in weekend trip to Gatlinburg. I will also be majorly catching up on my blog, all 11 drafts that I have in progress, and planning out new centers for my classroom. I may have 7 weeks off, but I will be busy for most of those!

Another exciting change is that we sold out house! We are currently living with my parents while our dream house is being built. We will finally have some extra, much needed space, and I will have a closet room! Stay tuned for some fun updates on the house and full post on how I edit and organize my closet room. As of last week the foundation had been poured and the frame had been built. Next step is insulation and dry wall! We meet with our builders the first week of June and I we will hopefully find out our closing date. This is such exciting time in our lives and I cannot wait to see what exciting things are still coming in our future.

Vivi is growing like a weed and has developed the cutest little personality. She is very particular about what she likes and is not afraid to tell you “No!” She has an obsession with all things tiny so at any given time our floors are covered with Shopkins, Hatchimals and LOL Dolls. She has also discovered “Cookie Swirl C” videos on YouTube. Those videos are both annoying and extremely addicting! I find myself being sucked in wondering what Shopkins she is going to get in her blind bag or if her LOL Doll will be a limited edition. Clearly I missed my calling in life and should be making videos of unwrapping Shopkins my profession.

It is also getting so much warmer here in Savannah. I feel like we went straight from Winter to Summer. We are already seeing temperatures in the nineties so I know that it is going to be a long, hot summer. The plus side is that I have been able to pull out all of my cute dresses, off the shoulder tops, and fun sandals. I am loving all of the trends for this spring and summer. They are making my inner 90s girl so happy. Give me all of the wide leg, high waisted jeans and platform sandals!

This outfit was from earlier in the spring before the temperatures got significantly higher. I love this light-weight Members Only jacket and feel like it will be great for cooler summer nights. The fact that Members Only is still around making classic jackets also makes my inner 90s girl so happy! The pink color is a fun touch and I love how it gives a more casual vibe to my outfit. I paired it with one of my favorite pairs of jeans, the cutest blush mules, and a comfy tunic. To finish off the look, I added sunglasses, a pair of fun earrings, and my absolute favorite clutch from the Studio DIY Can’t Clutch This subscription. I mean a Toaster Pastry Clutch? Yes Please!
