Congratulations to the winner, Libby Schnee!
Not one to pass up a good opportunity to try something new, I gave it a shot:-
Charlie Lapson sent me a coin purse and a key chain holder.
To be honest, I was not entirely sure I wanted the key chain holder, afterall, I have enough on my ring as it is. But I was convinced otherwise, when they told me,
“You’ll like it, we’ll send you something bright enough that you’ll never miss your keys.”
… and sure enough, they were right.
If you’re like me, your purse is the “Woman Cave:” an endless pit of darkness and stuff.
Needless to say, the bright yellow definitely helped without a doubt. I really like it and have found it’s size as well as colour not only fashionable, but useful and holding true to its function: to help me locate my keys.
The other item they sent me was this uber chic little coin purse. I found it to be really cute and rather functional as well.
Now, I typically walk around with a giant Vera Bradley wallet that I’m in love with and I keep replacing it whenever it goes to fashion heaven because I’ve killed it from use.
So I’m always a bit skeptical when anyone tries to change my routine. Especially, since I’m so used to my routine. But I found the Lapson coin purse to be a welcome change, in fact, I found it downright adorable.
It’s not as big as it looks in pictures and fits just as many coins as my Vera.
This may not be important to you, but its important to me because I always walk around with a lot of quarters.You never know when you’ll need them — pay phone, Coca-Cola from the vending machine, extra change on a cab ride etc. etc. etc.
But quarters are heavy and when there are a lot of them in one place, they become really bulky and clog up the coin area of your purse. With this Charlie Lapson creation it actually makes life just a little easier because it’s where I stored all of my quarters.
Needless to say, I was definitely happy with the samples, heck, I tried to be all fancy and get Ankee to pose with it; she ignored me.
The most I could do was put it next to her.
As you see, it’s the size of her head, if not smaller
