It’s funny, I always believed that when I would become a mom my life and career would slow down to a halt. I was so sure that brands wouldn’t hire me anymore and that I would spend the rest of my days as a stay-at-home-mom and blogger. Well, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. My life now is actually busier than it was before, not just because I have a baby to take care of, but because work has been pouring in. I cant complain, because I love what I’m doing. I just never imagined that it would be like this, and I just feel incredibly blessed to be able to do it all and more.
Well, the reality is not all things that’s supposed to be done is finished and there are days when I just want to sleep for a week. But every morning I wake up with renewed energy (no matter how little sleep I have) and that for me is a clear sign that I am doing the right thing.
Because I am usually doing a million and one things in a day, I have to be sure I’m dressed for any occasion. My day takes me from shoots to meetings to errands and more, and most of the time I bring my little one with me. My bag needs to be stylish and comfortable, and it needs to be able to carry everything from my essentials: my wallet, mobile phone, planner, and makeup kit; Tristan’s snacks and toys; and my nursing cover. Yes, I carry A LOT of things everyday, and I need them all, so my purse has to keep up with my lifestyle.
I recently discovered Avon Designed by Jodi bag collection, which is composed of three stylish bags to suit every active woman’s lifestyle. I’ve been using them for two weeks straight and it has been with me to my Pilates classes, errands, meetings and shoots. First of all, I love how spacious the bags are–they fit everything I need, including sometimes an extra t-shirt (for those spills and little accidents). And they are durable and made well, which I think says a lot about Avon. Oh, and now I am an even bigger fan of Jodi Sta Maria, because these bags are stylish and chic!
