Tote’s awesome

If you’re mentally removing apostrophe from headline, don’t. My lunch tote, a fabulous blend of form and function, really is awesome.

Igloo tote exterior

Polka dots add a playful pop to a color that goes with everything. Shoulder straps leave hands free.  A wide base means the tote won’t topple. And its compact exterior belies a seriously roomy interior.

Igloo tote capacity

This capacious carrier comfortably holds lunchbox, fruit, water bottle, train read, and light cardigan. All that and a bag of chips (not pictured).

Daiso detour

Ever been to Daiso? The Japanese chain has four stores in DFW. I popped by their Plano location for rainy day inspiration. Here’s a tiny sampling of the cute stuff on offer.

Daiso also has stationery, bento boxes, itty bitty dressing bottles, pretty Japanese paper fans, and loads more. Oh, and snacks! And Marukawa fruit-flavored bubble gum 🙂
