The Practical (mom) Meets the Fashionable (mom)!

Based in Dallas, Bag Bug is a designer house of innovative accessories, bridging the gap between the fashionable and the practical. The first patent-pending product designed by a woman for women is the Bag Bug™, an accessory created to help keep your handbag from constantly slipping off the shoulder, while adding comfort, and accessory appeal.

The Bag Bug™ can also be used to keep your purse off the floor by hanging it on the corner of a table, bar, or countertop, as well as on the back of a (round) chair! Bag Bug™. Wear it, Love it, Adore it.

The Bag Bug™ can be used on both round and flat straps, and most strap materials (cloth, leather, plastic, rope).

 

How to wear your Bag Bug™:

Everyone’s shoulders are different. You may have more than one handbag or diaper bag that you like to use. Because of this, my recommendation is for you to test different areas of your shoulder for the “sweet spot” of comfort. For me, the Bag Bug™ feels most comfortable toward the front of my shoulder. For others, that sweet spot is right in the middle of the shoulder. So, play with it, move it around and find your comfortable sweet spot! Keep in mind that sweet spot may be different when you switch purses and/or strap types.

 

How to select the shape of your Bag Bug™:

The best way to decide which shape of Bag Bug™  to get for your purse is to determine if the majority of your purses have round or flat straps, to begin with.  Tip: If the straps are flat and thick, the round shaped Bag Bug™ works best as it opens up wider and holds wider straps than the flat shaped Bag Bug™.

The Bag Bug™ can be used on most types of bags: Cocktail purses, small, medium, large and extra-large purses, with flat or round straps, including laptop and diaper bags.

 

How to attach and remove the Bag Bug™ to your purse: Whether you have 1 or 2 straps, it’s easy as 1, 2, 3!

Attaching the Bag Bug™ onto your handbag with a Round Strap(s) or Flat Strap(s):

  1. Widen the opening of the Bag Bug™ with your hands. Don’t be afraid to open it; it’s stainless steel so it’s strong material and won’t break on you (just don’t open it to 90 degrees). Slip your strap(s) through to the middle or back edge of the Bag Bug™. Depending on the size and thickness of your straps, you will be able to fit both or only 1 strap through the Bag Bug™. Nevertheless, the Bag Bug™ will keep both straps on your shoulder, as long as you wear it correctly.
  2. Once your straps are inside the Bag Bug™, press down strongly to close the Bag Bug™ over the straps so that it works properly and doesn’t slip off. This is the most important step! You don’t want to lose your Bag Bug™!

Here’s a helpful video that demonstrates how to attach your Bag Bug™, and shows you how to get the most out of your Bag Bug™!


Removing the Bag Bug™ from your handbag with a Round Strap(s) or Flat Strap(s):

  1. Widen the opening of the Bag Bug™ enough for the strap(s) of your purse to slip out easily. This will prevent your straps from being scratched by the Bag Bug™.

Note: The Bag Bug™ is designed to remain on the strap(s) you place it on. You can remove it at any time and it can be used daily.

How to select the color of your Bag Bug™:

I like to match the color of the purse’s hardware (the metal clasps, buckles, etc) to the color of the Bag Bug™. Each Bag Bug™ comes in 3 different colors: Silver, gold-plated, and rose gold-plated.

CityLine

If you’re looking for to check out some newer developed areas around town, check out CityLine. CityLine is located in the SE corner of George Bush Tollroad and Central Expressway. It’s just 2-3 stops off the DART from Parker station. It’s loaded with new restaurants and fun shops so visiting CityLine is a must!

CityLine is a new development that is served for mixed use of restaurants, Whole Foods grocery store, movie theater, offices, residences, and retail shops. It was created in hopes to bring more of a city life to the suburbs. They say the have something to offer everyone!

I loved that everything was within walking distance. I went around dinner time so I saw people out walking and enjoying themselves. I also thought the area was very well lit and there were tons of parking areas. That’s always nice!

I recently checked out CityLine and I was really impressed! There were so many fun restaurants to try out including one I’ve been hearing about, Fernando’s Mexican food. This was definitely the most packed as we were strolling by! It’s one I want to try sometime soon.

I also spotted Tom + Chee, for every grilled cheese lover! I’ve heard great things about this too. I was pleasantly surprised to see a nice variety of eateries. They have some nicer places that will cost more and some lower priced ranged sandwich and yogurt shops too.

To check out more shops and restaurants at CityLine they have a great directory to view them all with store information on each.  They have a movie theater that says opening in 2017 on the directory site. I did not see it the day I went so I’m not sure exactly when it will open.

CityLine is a really nicely done development that offers so many choices and things to do for the family. It will be a perfect place to spend a family night out or even a fun date night.  There were more developments going up and some construction going on because they are adding even more to the area!

Check out CityLine and let us know your favorite place there!
