Wink and Winn diaper bag giveaway

Note: This post is sponsored by Wink and Winn, but as always, all opinions are my own.

According to my hand dandy app, the bambino will arrive in 16-ish days! Ahh! This week I finally shared a few tutorials from the nursery, how to make ledge shelves and how to make easy valances. I’ve got lots more exciting baby things planned next week, maybe even some pics of this giant belly (here’s one from Valentine’s Day)! But today, We’ve got a fancy diaper bag giveaway.  She’s big, has a zipper at the top, dark colored, multiple compartments inside, and even has a tassel! She’s from Wink and Winn, a fun new company that allows you to design your own bag. Yea, that’s right you get to pick it all out folks. It’s harder than it sounds, ha! There are so many pretty choices, choosing one is tricky business! I finally decided on this diaper bag beauty:

Wink and Winn diaper bag giveaway

Here’s how it works… you go to the Wink and Winn site, and first choose a style of bag. Mine is a North South tote. The site is interactive and fun and it makes it really easy to see what your bag would look like in real life. I spent a few minutes, or uhh hours, whipping up lots of combos. Here is my narrowed down list of 6 choices. Oh and those gold dots on the bag are the 7 customizable pieces to your bag (handles, tassel, top trim, sides of bag, front of bag, hardware, and bottom of bag). There are 33 color/ material choices just for the outside and then you have to pick a liner, hardware, and tassel!

Wink and Winn


I narrowed it down to these 2 choices and facebooked it. Facebook voting had a 50/50 split. Uh oh. No what? I decided to be practical. True. The navy bag is darker and would show less mess, so that’s the one I got to use as my diaper bag!

Final Wink and Winn


Here’s another fun thing, Wink and Winn sends you periodic sneak peeks of your bag in production. Here’s the first one:Wink and Winn diaper bag

Then, I also love that you get an email when the bag is done! You can get excited and start expecting it at your door!
