Camera Bag c/o JoTotes

Since we’re smack dab in the middle of “holiday season”, it also means that everyone is always in a picture taking mood (well for me, it seems like I take even more pictures around the holidays).  I know sometimes I revert to using my phone for pictures, but I promised myself that I wouldn’t have Austin’s whole childhood documented in poor quality phone photos and that I need to take some Canon 50D pictures of him at least a couple times a month!

And what makes it even easier to carry around my camera, lens, cleaning wipes, as well as my daily essentials like wallet, phone, lipstick, keys… is this gorgeous Missy Mint bag!  First of all, it’s my first ever mint bag and I am in LOVE with the color.  The bag itself has a ton of padding, removable velcro inserts that snap in easily so you can create your own sized compartments, and tons of pockets.  It’s truly a high quality bag, super stylish and I love carrying it around (on my arms or crossbody – score!).

  193. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justigication seemed
    to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say too you, I certainly get annoyed while
    people think about worries that they just do not know about.
    Yoou managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
