TakeATote Review and Giveaway...

Cool For School Giveaway #4


Thanks to the mother/daughter team at TakeATote we recently had the opportunity to review an adorable little pouch like this one:
A little background on TakeATote/Yvonne Totes:

What we thought: I love the pouch I was sent to review. It is the perfect size to hold my ID, cell phone, keys, and chapstick. It is perfect to just grab and go when I'm on my own(yes, those RARE occasion do happen:) or to toss in the diaper bag when I'm on-the-go with the kiddos.
