Review - StorkSak Travel Duffle Bag

This is the weekend bag that tops all other weekend bags.

I've used this bag on flights, train rides, and road trips, and I'm still amazed at how much I can fit into it. It keeps everything nice an organized too, which I  love!


I was not able to fit it in the overhead bin on the airplane I was on (it was a smaller plane), but it fit perfectly under the seat in front of me. It fit great in the overhead storage on my Amtrak train as well.

It is so versatile too. The hanging organizer was a lifesaver on my last trip to NYC. I was sharing a room with two other girls, and there wasn't a ton of counter space in the bathroom. I was able to hang the organizer on one of the towel racks to keep all my toiletries together and out of the way!

You can tell right away that this duffle was made with quality and for durability. The leather trim accents are beautiful. StorkSak even included straps on outside of the bag to hold your jacket! They made sure to create a travel bag that reall…

Hello, hello!

So while my personal blog may have been quiet for a year, I definitely wasn't just sitting on my hands (I have a kid, so we all know how busy life can get)! I was contributing to a local Big City Moms blog. I submitted posts twice a month on topics that were relevant to me or the season.

I wanted to share some of the posts here though, so you could read about some of the things that were going on in my life. As a new mom, I was continually learning new things about myself, my husband, and our new way of life with a baby.

This is my author page that lists all of the posts that I had written: Ruzella Wagner

Hello!

It's been far too long since I've updated this, and after the amazing weekend I had, I have a renewed faith that I can keep this going.

It's been over a year since my last post, and I have excuse after excuse as to why. Between some health issues, figuring out motherhood, and a huge family move, I'm back.

I'm excited for what the future holds for this blog! I have some awesome collaborations in the works, and I can't wait to share them with all of you!

Some things to look forward to:

Timi & Leslie - Classic Tote - London

Hello! (In my best Adele voice)

I hope you had a great weekend! I hope you are all enjoying the somewhat Spring-like weather. Timi and Leslie sent me two diaper bags to review right after I had my baby girl last July. Life was rough as the beginning, but as I wrote about in my last post, things are slowly getting easier. I was able to write my review on the Jessica bag a few months ago, and now I want to talk about their Classic Tote.


I've been using this bag for about 3 months now, and it has been my go-to. I have 3 diaper bags (I know that you only really need one), but I love how each bag brings a different sense of style. The classic tote is just that, classic.

Happy New Year!

I know, I know - it's already the end of February.

This whole mom thing isn't easy. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but for some reason, I didn't think it would be this hard. Don't get me wrong, having my daughter has been the biggest blessing in my life! She has changed our world, and has made it so much better. Her smiles and laughter get me through each day.

There is so much more planning involved with just getting out of the house (which we need to do more often). Are we leaving near a nap time, meal time, or fussy time? Is there a place where I can nurse her (I really need to figure out how to use my NuRoo Nursing scarf)? How presentable do I really need to look? Is there anything that I'm shopping for that I can't just buy using Amazon Prime?

It is getting easier, though. Those first few months are still somewhat blurry, but that's okay. Once my girl started getting to be more mobile, things got easier. She's not sleeping t…

A New Love

I love, love. I understand what love means, how to walk in love, and how to speak lovingly.  When I met my husband, I learned about a new love. I have never loved someone so much before, and getting married "sealed" our love. My husband knows all there is about me, and loves me anyways.

When my daughter was born almost 5 months ago, I learned about another love. [I really started learning about it the second I found out I was  pregnant]. The moment we heard her cry for the very first time, I'll never forget. This little person has completely changed our lives. I'm still awestruck that she is mine. She was part of me for 9 months. I felt her kicks, punches, and hiccups. I would daydream about what she might look like, and worry about things I had no control over.

Love is one of those emotions that can take you on a roller coaster. It will make you cry tears of happiness, but also sadness. It can make you scream with joy, and in anger. It can make you say …
