Flying Buttress Review and Giveaway

 Hola my loves! 'Tis the holiday season for wish list to come up and all of us to start shopping for our loved ones :) It can get a little bit crazy when you start to run out of gift ideas.
So, today I'm so excited to introduce you to Flying Buttress, they designed a handbag collection that is perfect for children or tweens! Their approach on handbags encourages imagination, sustainability and individual expression. They specialize in handbags, totes, tech cases and lunch bags. 

I recently had the opportunity to review a Booie bag from Flying Buttress through the Latina Lifetstyle Bloggers Collective #LLBLOG Holiday Gift Guide
and let me tell you that this handbag is perfect for any child, tween or grown up like me :)

Before I talk a little bit more about what makes these handbags so special, let me tell you what I received. I was sent  the Booie Bag Gift Pack, this pack includes (1) Booie Bag, (2) Mona Lisa Panels, (2) Kimberly Panels/Magenta Sequin Panels, (1) Fabricmate Marker - Color option Black or Magenta.
 You can buy the handbags separately and as many panels as you want or you can buy a Gift Pack like the one shown above.

 Can I just tell you that I love the idea of snaps on a bag. I can be so crazy and I can easily get bored with my handbags.Their bags feature exterior snaps for attaching any of their 35+ decorative panels! Say what?! Yep you heard that right, a bag with snaps and tons of panels to choose from. All of their U.S. manufactured panels fit their five styles of Flying Buttress handbag line. That means that you can switch the panels as many times a day or week that your heart desires.
The bag is the size of of a medium lunch bag - Dimensions: 8"H x 10"W x 2.5"D

It is lined with a white, pink silky material and it has a zipper on the inside. 
You can carry it across or just by the shoulder and you can also use it without any panels, the denim also works.

My Booie bag all snazzled up! 
So you see this is the perfect bag for any person who loves to change up their bags without having to purchase a new one (even though a girl can never have enough bags) or for any budding artist you may know.
My son loved decorating these panels and I can't wait to carry around my bag (tomorrow) and proudly display my munchkins art! You better believe that this is a masterpiece still not finished and I thank Flying Buttress for helping encourage my munchkins imagination!
