JoTotes Bags

While gallivanting about NYC I had a sidekick that stuck with me the whole trip…My Jo Totes camera bag! To say it was a handy camera bag is a serious understatement. First, it completely protected my camera (which is like a second child so it was a must that it stay snuggled safe when I wasn’t clicking away). Second, it was super easy to retrieve my camera when a photo opp presented itself. And let’s be honest I am prone to see almost every moment as a photo opp (much to the amusement of my hubs). Third, I fit SO MUCH stuff in this bag and it never felt like I was over-stuffing it (shall we just refer to it as the Mary Poppins bag? Yes.) or like it was too heavy. Best. Investment. Ever. As you notice, Jo Totes is one of our spectacular sponsors and I am not fibbing when I say that these babies would make a killer Christmas gift. Here are a few of my favorites:

Above is there Georgia Nautical bag…a personal favorite!

I am loving this bag for a smaller bag option…

and this bag is my second favorite!

My Jo Totes bag came in especially handy at the MOMA in NYC, where I was clicking photos left and right (like a super annoying art-enthusiast tourist).

^ When I saw Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon I was brought to tears. It’s hard to explain how someone could have an emotional response to a piece of modern art depicting nude prostitutes, but for some reason or another it moved me. Picasso was brilliant. Misunderstood by some, but seeing his work in person was absolutely breathtaking.

^ One thing I adore about modern art is the lack of requirements for materials. Anything and everything is fair game when it comes to mediums. As a hands-on DIY enthusiast I can appreciate draped painted posters and broken frames and funky “furniture” as art. I buy it. Makes sense to me.
