School is starting back across the nation and one of the concerns that usually enters my mind is… college students. If you’ve been to college or are currently enrolled in college, I’m sure you know how annoying it is to have to carry large books, tablets, paper, and everything else you can imagine, depending on the area of study. I had to take all of my nursing equipment plus all of my text books, drug books and reference books. I didn’t have anything cute & large enough to carry everything at once. I didn’t even have anything ugly and large enough to take everything with me. I had to run (literally) out to my car between classes, and pray I made it the next class on time. Sometimes I made it, sometimes I slid in without a second to spare.
I’m sure everyone knows someone in college or you might even have a child in college yourself. I wanted to work in collaboration with Maggie Bags to give one of you the chance to win a Maggie Bags Butterfly Bag that will hold just about anything a college student would need to put in it so they don’t have to make multiple trips to their car in between classes. Now don’t get me wrong, this bag is not specifically for college students, it can be used any which way you decide to use it, if you’d rather keep it for yourself; diaper bag, beach bag, workout bag, or even as a large stylish handbag, which is what I will use mine for the majority of the time. It’s a very versatile bag and is one of my favorite Maggie Bags because of it’s versatility. It would even make a great bag for teachers to keep all of their work and activities in (you could throw away those ugly briefcases, lol).
It was really hard making the decision of which Butterfly Bag I wanted because all of the colors are gorgeous, however, I decided on the Maggie Bags Butterfly Bag in Tropical Combo. I love pink and lime green and I’m sure I made the perfect choice for me. I can use it so many different ways and I have quite a few outfits that will blend in well with it when I use it at a handbag. I think I have everything except the kitchen sink in my handbags and they just aren’t big enough to suit me. Maggie Bags Butterfly Bag is nice and roomy and I can zip it up and go without worrying about having to leave anything behind. I love the top zipper so I can keep everything hidden inside.
Maggie Bags uses rejected seat belts as their material so you know they will last a lifetime due to the durability the seatbelt strips provides. They take the seatbelts that do not meet government standards for automobiles and thus are keeping them out of the landfills and are instead, helping to keep our environment clutter free.
Things I love about the Butterfly Bag?
I love the longer strap length. I can wear it over my shoulder without it rubbing against my underarm. I have plenty of room to open my bag all the way to either remove products or add products in it. Short straps tend to rub my deodorant off of my underarm when I’m trying to open it without sitting it down. I really hate getting deodorant on my handbags.
The bags come in a protective plastic covering which I think is a nice touch. It arrives safe and dirt free.
Each Maggie Bags Butterfly Bags has the brand logo attached.

The bottom is one of my favorite features. Due to the 4 little metal feet, I can sit it anywhere without having to worry about getting it dirty.
This is one of the outside pockets. The outside pockets have hidden zippered pouches for storing whatever you need to keep out of prying eyes; money, credit cards, etc.
There is a nice roomy pocket on the inside on one side of the bag. Note the popular purple lining covering the inside of the Butterfly Bag.
A zippered compartment inside on the back side of the bag.
Handy little pockets to put your pens, sunglasses and phone (or whatever else you want to use the pockets for).

Each bag varies slightly in size due to the different sizes of the seatbelt webbing, but regardless, you will get a nice large & roomy Butterfly Bag.
I participated in a Maggie Bags blogger contest earlier in the year which I won thanks to all of you who purchased a Maggie Bags, bag, or accessories, using my promo code. I’m including another promo code (no contest this time but I suggest taking advantage of this generous savings code) for 20% savings on any purchase (except clearance items and bundle & save categories) you make at Maggie Bags. Now would be a great time to start working on Christmas gifts. Use promo code: TERRI20 when checking out.
