Perfect for travel!
This bag is the perfect little hands-free bag for traveling! My iPad Mini which is housed in a Targus rotating case, fits in the main compartment. This compartment has a zippered pocket where I put my passport in. The built-in wallet is an excellent idea, I'm glad I don't have to bring a wallet. I put my cards and IDs in there and some cash - I do not have to fold the bills, they fit right into the slot behind the cards. There is still space for small things like keys and lipstick. At the back, there's an open pocket that closes with a magnet. I put my boarding passes there for easy access. I put my phone there too, but most of the time it's in the main compartment (it's still roomy despite having the tablet). The bottom feels sturdy with reinforcements, I'm not sure what it is, maybe cardboard? I wear the bag crossbody so I'm hands-free while walking and exploring. This is definitely a must-have bag if you travel a lot with your mini tablet.

All in one
I bought this purse in Marina Blue for my trip to Disney World. My mom wanted me to have a cross body with a wallet built into it so I would be able to keep track of all my stuff without having to dig through my Tote. The little hipster has just that(: It has enough room for my iPhone, snacks, hair brush and other small things. The wallet part in the front has a place for my debit card, cash, license and gave me easy access to my Park Hopper pass for the rides.

Holds more than it looks like it would!
I was curious about this style when I started looking for small crossbodies that had more space than my mini hipster. The price point was a little high for trying a new style (as I have so many styles already, too), but when I saw it on the Sale shelf in Camellia I knew I had to give it a shot. I'm so glad I did!
I loaded this bag up to take to a hockey game and it was awesome to have my money, phone, etc. easy to get to but not really in the way. I put my Burt's Bees sanitizer, a pen and my cell in the back magnetic pocket, tissues, lip gloss, mints, pen, small composition book/notepad, gum, my Kindle Paperwhite (in the case) and, in a pinch, my Accuchek Nano BG meter (w/o the Kindle). The zipper pocket inside I put extra cards, cash, coins and receipts/coupons to be sorted. The outside holds my most frequently used "wallet" cards, my coupons if I'm going to the grocery, sometimes an extra pen or pencil.
I was carrying a Cassidy (another style I love) and this little thing holds about 3/4 of what it did! I'm really impressed that it can hold all it does, it's comfy to wear, it stays put AND it doesn't look like a big "saddle bag".
