A couple of weeks ago the lovely Rickina, creator and owner of Stick Me Designs, posted on facebook about wanting to give us bloggers a chance to test and blog about her product. I jumped at the chance because I've honestly been wanting a Stick Me bag for a while, but haven't ever gotten around to getting one.
Stick Me Designs is a company that makes meter bags that are NOT your plain old black bag. They are beautiful. Because honestly, who wants to have that boring old black bag? Not me. I've had a black meter case for 25 years now. And we all know how boring they can get.
Rickina sent me the Aqua Deco print of one of her cases. She also told me I could either keep it or have a give away. It came in a cute package and when I got it out, it was amazing! The fabric seems to be pretty durable and there are a million and one zipper pockets, and elastic bands. I put some of my things in it to give you all an idea of what it looks like.
Basically, I was able to fit in my meter, lancet device, 2 bottles of strips, insulin, emergency batteries, glucose tabs, a spare infusion set and reservoir, along with all the other supplies needed for a full pump change. I also put in my glucagon kit. And it all fit! In fact, one of the pockets on the outside of the case is lined in a cold pack material, which is where I stored my insulin.
I loved this case. But I decided to part with it. Here are my reasons, it's kind of big (obviously, to fit all of that stuff) and I would have an issue fitting it into my purse easily. I would probably get a lot of use out of it on vacations and on short trips, but not the every day use that I think a student carrying a backpack or a parent of a child with diabetes might be able to get out of it. Because it was given to me, I didn't feel right keeping it if I wasn't going to use it all the time.
So instead, I'm giving all of you a chance at winning this awesome Stick Me Designs bag. All you have to do it comment on this post before midnight CST on Monday, June 6th. I'll do a random drawing for the winner. But even if you don't win, I highly suggest you go check out Rickina's site. She has some beautiful and functional products that you should check out.
*disclaimer: This product was sent to me free of charge in exchange for me blogging about it. I was not told what to blog, only to be honest in my blog, which I have done.*
