Buti-Bag Company Review & AWESOME Giveaway!!!

Good morning everyone! I am so excited to bring you this review & giveaway today! Remember Worry Bud's post regarding the buti-bag company, where Nicole - the designer for & owner of this chic line of baby blankets, bags & other essential baby & mama gear - offered Bloomin' Babies readers a great discount on her products?! Well,  being the very generous person she is, Nicole is now bringing Bloomin' Babies an AWESOME giveaway as well AND she's extending the special discount for Bloomin' Babies readers only!! 

Just like many moms, Nicole's idea for the buti-bag company line came from needing or wanting something specific for her baby, but that specific thing not being available in the marketplace. The buti-bag company's first design brought to market, the bundle (Patent Pending), was created after Nicole just couldn't find anything she liked to hold a few essentials once her baby became a toddler and less "stuff" was needed. She wanted something of quality that would hold a few essentials and a product which would have a functional life beyond baby/toddler-hood. Thus, the buti-bag company & the bundle were born! After her creation of the bundle, Nicole expanded her line to include many more chic & modern baby & women's accessories with today's active lifestyle in mind. And lucky for all of us because the buti-bag company offers so many functional, yet adorable & beautiful things in some of the best patterns I've seen out there!


Like the cute, yet very functional original bundle (Patent Pending):





And the also very functional, yet equally adorable bunvelope:



And these drool-worthy (pun intended ;oP) binkmeister pacifier clips:


Oh, oh & these beautiful large & cuddly blankets





And I could keep going & going on all of her adorable stuff!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE her designs & pattern options!! Ahhh, cuteness overload! Check out the buti-bag company's online shop & sign up on the email list serve to hear about exclusive deals & find out about the new products being added to the buti-bag company's line very soon!


*~*Review*~*

Since Worry Bud first introduced the Bloomin' Babies readers to the buti-bag company, the very sweet Nicole even offered to send Baby WB an item of WB's choice to review before giving it away to Bloomin' Babies readers, here's what Worry Bud had to say about the buti-bag company's products:

When Nicole from the buti-bag company contacted me to thank me for the post I did on her company & said she'd like to offer Baby WB an item to try out, I was sooooo excited. As most of you know, I have a slight (read: a little outta control) baby buying obsession that Mr. WB has been trying to reign in since we found out Baby WB was a girl! I had been searching for a cute & multi-functional shopping cart cover for Baby WB for a while & neither of the two stores I registered at had anything I liked, so when I saw the buti-bag company's bi-o-pad, I just knew that was the perfect thing for my little girl! I had also been searching for a travel wipes case that wasn't so bulky & didn't leak (I have experience with the standard hard plastic travel wipes cases since I have a younger brother that I am over 20 years older than & know for a fact that most of them leak) as well, so when I saw the very well designed & functional pod, I knew I'd love that too! I offered to pay for the pod, but Nicole insisted she'd throw that in as well!! My items arrived in just a few days & were packaged very nicely so as not to crush the pods or ruin the bi-o-pad in any way. I was also surprised to find some ADORABLE binkmeister binkie clips as well! 




The bi-o-pad was soooo soft & cuddly & very well-made. I know it's going to be a permanent staple in Baby WB's diaper bag any time we go out shopping, to dinner, or for any other reason really. The pod will also always be found in Baby WB's diaper bag since you can conveniently carry baby wipes in these when you're on the go! And finally, once Baby WB starts using pacis, I can't wait to clip one of the stylish binkmeister clips to her outfit or bib so that her paci stays clean & off the ground (which is particularly important to me since I'm a bit of a germ-o-phobe), woot! I can't wait to use all of my buti-bag company stuff when Baby WB makes her arrival!!! I was so impressed, I even went back on the buti-bag company's site & purchased a big, cuddly blanket for Baby WB as well!
