Tili Bags (and giveaway)

In last month's issue of Instyle magazine, a certain product caught my eye, and I knew I had to find out more-Tili Bags!

Whenever I travel, I end up using about 7 or 8 different Ziploc baggies to throw stuff in-makeup, shampoo and stuff, Q-tips-you name it! On my recent beach trip, I had packed everything to cute little perfection in my favorite green suitcase and my new makeup bags-and I realized that the Ziplocs were completely cramping my style. The founder and owner of Tili bags and I must be kindred spirits because she came out with these-

Yes, those ARE super-cute printed reusable zip & seal baggies that you are looking at. Tili bags! It's like they were made for me.
Tili bags come in adorable little cardboard boxes of 12, with 4 each of three different designs, all in the same color palette. They have large one gallon sizes, and small one quart sizes, either box will cost you less than $10, which I couldn't believe when I first found out the price. The colors and patterns are rich, vibrant, and so cute. Tili bags can be used for about a zillion and a half different things-to carry makeup, toiletries, loose change, jewelry, snacks, or even a small stash of diapers for your diaper bag or car. (I just had a few loose diapers rolling around in my car since I don't carry a diaper bag anymore now that G baby is older. Now that G baby is a big boy I am going to stash some clean undies and shorts in a tili bag and keep them in my glove box!) Every bag even has a "A tili bag for..." printed in a little box, which makes them awesome for gift bags!
Here's me, in a daze of chic and functional
Wherever I travel, I bring a stash of cotton balls and Q-tips in a ziploc bag. Never will my bathroom bag be dull and boring again.
Another thing about Tili that I love, is their website-it's so fun and cute. They have the most adorable little introduction page and even the list of uses for the bags is done in a really chic and unique way. You should really check it out! You can also check out their facebook page hereI received my Tili bags yesterday, and I have already been putting them to good use!

I also always keep certain toiletries in bags as well-since they tend to leak. I fit everything I would need in one bag with room to spare-shave cream, face soap, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. 

If you have a leak, just rinse the bag out, let it dry, and use it again. Not only does the print on the bags give you some privacy, but the material is thick enough that you can open the bag and it will keep it's shape-making setting it out to dry easy!

Another great use I found was to stash my bangles and bracelets in it when I travel-instead of just throwing them in my suitcase because they're too big for my travel jewelry case. Oops.

If you carry a large purse-Tili bags are a must! Your on-trend purse is the last place you want to bring down with a bunch of plain plastic baggies!

I put all of my makeup that I carry in my purse in a Tili bag-no more makeup spills or messes grossing up my purse! Yay!!

I love these bags so much that I have chosen to make them the subject of my first give-away. Yes, that means one of you is soon going to have your own box of chicness.
