The other week, I happened to be looking at my Twitter feed and came across a company I hadn't heard of yet, Lo & Sons. The bag they featured on Twitter that day was their OMG bag (which I'm dying to get my hands on!!!) and it caught my attention. So I decided to check them out and I'm glad I did.
I love how their story began - Helen Lo was in her 60's when she got fed up with looking for the perfect travel bag. She is a frequent traveler that has back issues. Her two sons, Jan and Derek, convinced her to design her own bag. With their help, she did just that and then some.
The bag I want to tell you about is their Catalina bag. I love that this bag is super spacious. It definitely has room for the weekend. It will even hold a toiletry bag along with everything else you might need. My favorite part of the bag is the bottom zip compartment. It will hold a pair of boots or dirty clothes. It has two outside convenient compartments for easy access to things like sunglasses. There is also an inside zipped compartment to hold small items like jewelry. There are just a few things I would like to see added such as a shoulder strap and maybe a zipped outside pocket. The bag is pricey unless they are having a sale, which of course I wouldn't bring that up unless they were. Right now they are having a Valentine's 20% off.
What do you look for in a weekend bag??
All the necessities to be packed.
Top compartment filled.
Bottom zip compartment.
All loaded and zipped up.
I truly find Helen Lo's story inspiring. Seeing a dream come true at any age is an incredible achievement. Like my husband always says to me, "without dreams we have nothing to live for."
