5 Ways to Use Your Quote Zipper Bag

5 Ways to Use Your Quote Zipper Bag

With spring break and summer just around the corner, I figured we'd let you in on a few of our favorite ways to use our quote zipper bag!

1. Travel

I love taking our quote zipper bags along with us on our travels. They're the perfect size and obviously gorgeous for those spontaneous instagram flatlays! I typically use a different bag for each of the following categories.

  • Makeup
  • Hair Accessories
  • Jewelry
  • Delicates (weekend trips only....if not you'll probably need a bigger bag!)

2. Feminine Products

These quote zipper bags are honestly so great at concealing feminine products! I hate having clear ones for fear of someone reaching into my purse and seeing them or the slot in your purse where it can so easily fall out. The beautiful designs make it so much easier to see that your period can have pretty things too!

3. Coffee Shop Work Supplies

Pack up your pens, pencils, and cute supplies in your quote zipper bag for your next coffee shop work day. When we're all spread out on the tables you know you need to add a little pretty for that snapchat or insta story and it's the perfect size for all of your office supplies!

4. School Supplies

So obviously since they're the perfect size for pens and pencils it's natural that they'd be a great fit to take to school. So, if you're still in college or have a daughter, niece or cousin that's still in school, this is the perfect gift to brighten their day! They'll totally feel like cool girl pulling this out of their backpack ;)

5. Snacks

This is the perfect bag to fill with bars, snacks, and gum for a long work day or photoshoot. No fishing out individual bars from your purse or carrying a not so pretty lunch box of snacks!

There you have it! Our five favorite ways to use our quote zipper bag. Do you have any unique ways you use yours? I'd love to hear and create a mega list of awesome efficient ideas! Comment below with yours!

Small Business Spotlight - Love Neen

Small Business Spotlight - Love Neen

It's time for our new monthly blog series! If you missed it before, once a month we'll be showcasing an amazing small business owner. You'll get to know all about their business, how they started it, what they sell, and a few extra fun facts!
So let's introduce, Neen!
 
 
What inspired you to start your company?
Ever since I was young I've always had a passion with creating and making things with my hands. I love the process of putting pieces/materials together to create something special to make someone's day. Now that I have my own shop I have the opportunity to share my passion with my customers. Just to see how much they love and enjoy what I make puts a huge smile on my face and always inspires me!

What is your favorite part of being an entrepreneur?
I would say how I have control over my own schedule and I answer only to myself.

What are some of the biggest challenges you've faced and how have you overcome them?
Something that I find challenging is the different roles that comes along with owning any company/ business and having to play them simultaneously within myself. There are different duties such as planner, supplier, finances, craftswoman, marketing, manager, etc. I struggled with this quite a bit in the first half of me opening my shop but as the days go by I learn more and more and I'm starting to find my rhythm. Although not quite perfected yet but I'm still working on it constantly and I know it will all come together as long as I keep a calm-happy attitude and a drive in my heart!

What are some of your favorite products in your store right now?
Some of my favs would be my confetti pop tart and panda cone dangles. Those are always so much fun to make!

What is the one thing you'd love to tell people who are new to your brand?
I would say that the goodies that I offer in my shop are just to be cute, fun and a little extension of you! Whether your looking to get a neendori (traveler's notebook/notebook cover), those fun little kawaii inspired dangles, etc. their meant to show a bit of your fun persona, brighten your day, and just make you smile!!
 
THE FUN STUFF 
 
Favorite Food: 
Korean spicy pork- I love spicy foods!
 
Favorite TV Show: 
Ellen- Her show always uplifts me!
 
Favorite Drink: 
Boba tea- Preferably milk tea or green tea
 
Favorite Saying: 
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist." -Oscar Wilde
 
Favorite Movie:
50 First dates- I'm a sucker for most of Adam Sandler's movies. That one always makes me cry!
