Take Your World with You

with Beside-U Canada

The holidays are here! This time of year means that I am on the move more than at any other time of the year. There are days I need to take a lot with me to accomplish my “Holiday To-Do List” yet I do not have enough room in my tote to hold it all. Beside-U Canada asked me if I would review a bag from their chic lines of purses, bags, back packs and totes to see if I could take my world with me while on-the-go! I chose to test their Zamora tote in Stone Blue from their Endeavor collection.




The Zamora tote boasts many features users love to have in a bag. It has a locking main compartment so important items will only be able to be accessed by you while wearing it. The RFID guarded zippered pocket can hold credit and debit cards to help avoid identity theft. There are also plenty of roomy pockets that allow for users to bring all sorts of items along with them.



My favourite feature of the Zamora tote had to be its size. It is a bag I can take with me on when I need to take a lot of things with me for a day away from home. I was able to bring everything I needed to set up a mobile office with me in this bag with room to spare! This makes working while on the road or in between meetings at a coffee shop more manageable.




The handles and straps are also fantastic! I was not worried when having to carry heavy items around all day. The handles felt sturdy and were great to use if I had a lighter load to bring with me. The adjustable strap helped carry my laptop and other heavy objects on my shoulders with ease.




Another feature I love about this bag is that I can also use it for more than just a laptop bag. It would be great to use as a chic overnight or carry-on bag! It could carry all of the clothes I need for a one-night stay away from home, to bring another outfit with me if I have a function to attend when a stop at home is not an option or to bring what I need to work and be comfortable while on the road!

I was really happy with the Zamora tote from Beside-U Canada! It allowed me to take whatever I needed to take on a hectic day or to get away and have fun. The colour is fabulous, it has quite a few security features, and the strength of the straps and handles made it easy for me to carry heavier items. This bag will be great to tote for the holidays and a fabulous gift idea to give this year!
