Whatcha got in the bag, baby?

I am not afraid to admit I miss the beach a little. Sun, rinse, sun, cocktail, repeat. Who hates that schedule? I also forgot to tell you about my fabulous new poolside treat. One day whilst lounging in my sun frock, I spied a fabulous tote on a woman's arm as she strolled by. The women next to me pointed it out to her friend, and said, "Look, she has the Bubble Beach Bag."

I thought: Bubble Beach Bag? Oh, do tell me more.

The on site boutique was closed that sells the bags was closed that night but once back in Atlanta, I knew that bag would look smashing at my own pool. One click off Google later, and I was on the phone with V., the owner of Bubble Beach Bags.

How pretty are they? This pretty:
And they come in multiple fabulous colors and two sizes. Whether I have my iPod and towel, or a bag full of Buzz Lightyear pool toys (umm, not for me silly, for MiniMac) this bubble bag is perfect for poolside faire and super easy to keep clean. It also deflates which means it is perfect to pack for your upcoming trip. Lightweight and pretty? Of course I had to have one. The small one is fantastic too and perfect for a book, keys, BB, and your sunblock.

Now, I am not here to flaunt my lovely bag in front of you. After I got bag in hand, I chatted with V. again. In the 10 signs you know you had a great vacation post, many of you shared that you have beach/pool/cruise vacations ahead as well. Don't you need a new bag on your arm? V. and I think so, so we have partnered for the  

Whatcha Got in the Bag, Baby? Giveaway. 

Oh, I am sorry, I meant Whatcha Got in the Bags, Baby? Giveaway. Shall I clarify? Bubble Beach Bags is five star so we are giving away not one but FIVE of these fab totes. 
That is right. We are giving away three large and two small Bubble Beach Bags so you can have some new sparkle this summer. Keep it for yourself or give it to your favorite person. OR just keep it for yourself. You know you deserve it.

Dual Mom said...

I WANT that bag! In silver. I follow here.

Dual Mom said...

And I'm following the bag "lady" (heehe) on FB.

Dual Mom said...

I've also broken my anonymity and follow you on facebook. Of course if you tell anyone I'll have to kill you. So kidding....

This is just indicative of how much I want that silver bag.

Intense Guy said...

Not gonna share your Buzz Lightyear Pool Toys huh?

:)

This is just what I was mentally picturing when you said, "Baywatch Girl" in your previous post... Bubbles... plastic... umm....

Oh go on, don't mind me sitting here babbling... you got other comments to read...

Very cool fun bag! Looks great for any activity where you might get a little dirty. I'm thinking of the barn and my horses. Now wouldn't I be stylish toting that around?

Cara Smith said...

Those are too stinkin cute. Love that they are deflateable.

susan said...

Jenny-I definitely want to be a beach fashionista. I don't "tweet", but I'm a follower! Love 'em---and I would be a good ambassador (not like the nasty "pool lady" :)

Jules said...

Dare I even enter this contest????? ;)

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Greeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!!!!!!!!! I love the greeeeeeeeen one!

We are considering a cruise at the beginning of September and that would be just SO perfect for my cruise-y beach attire! I'm all about green.

Hey, and you didn't nix Canadian entries this time? Bonus!! ;)

I'd tweet, but I have no followers, so it'd be pointless and I'd feel like I was cheating...

The Vegetable Assassin said...

You know what, lady? You suck. Because I do not do MySpace or Facebook or Twitter or following because a) I use a Reader for following and b)I don't social network because I have a LIFE so I can never enter your damn giveaways ever, also? I'm in Canada. Yes, thanks for HULUing my ass in that respect too. I'm going to go now and sulk and eat chocolate and maybe whip up a voodoo doll with your head on it, while pretending I don't care.

Who wants a bubble bag anyway, hmm? NOT THIS FOREIGNER.

PAH :)

Baloney said...

That bag will be perfect for my beach trip. If the oil spill ruins the beach, I will still have a fabulous bag. It's a win-win. :)

shortmama said...

I have no pool or any planned beach trips but I still want it because its so cool looking!

Just out of curiosity, does Jules begging for the bag on twitter give her more entries?

Little Ms Blogger said...

will the bag come with brownies in it? -- I know this counts for nothing, but I thought you'd laugh

Teddy Started It said...

OMG! OMG! OMG! I saw the Bubble Bag and almost clicked away from your blog to go buy one. Then I said, "Breath, girl...BREATH - finish reading." And then I saw the giveaway!! I MUST have this bag. I'm going on a nightmare...I mean lovely cruise next month with 25 members of my husband's family (oh yeah, you wish you were me!). One of these beauties will make it all seem OK. I just know it.
