The Coast + A Giveaway with SkipHop

Last week, we packed our bags and headed for the coast. Seaside holds a very special place in our hearts. You've heard the little saying, "you are my person." Well, this is our place. And this place of ours always leaves us better than when it found us. Always. We were given uncommonly beautiful weather for the month of March. And we let the sunshine pour all over us. At the end of our stay, Graeme insisted we hadn't stayed long enough and strongly protested the packing up of all our bags. Jobie was also quite sad to leave the "he-hide". 




p.s. I wanted to talk a little about SkipHop. Have you heard of them? They reached out with an offer of one of their Duo Luxe French Stripe diaper bags. And, I actually used it as a weekender bag for our coast trip. (see the last photo above) I really enjoy diaper bags that don't appear to be diaper bags and their French Stripe Duo Luxe bag really caught my eye. The best news is that SkipHop is giving away one Due Essential Diaper Bag (choose your favorite style) to a Cranny + Me reader this week! This would make a wonderful gift for the next baby shower on your list! (Or, if you're like me, a wonderful addition to your vacation bag collection, with all of its pockets and compartments! Books, Graeme-bear's sling shot, diapers and wipes filled mine this past weekend.)

To enter, leave a comment letting me know which style of the Duo Luxe you'd choose if you were to be the winner! Also, please make sure to leave your email address or other contact information. (If you'd like an extra entry, share this giveaway on Facebook and let me know in your comment.) Happy entering, friends! And, happy Monday! (The winner will be announced next Monday.)
*CONGRATULATIONS TO LACIE WRIGHT! Random.org picked you as the winner this morning!*

    1. Hi Sarah,
      I wasn't sure if I missed an email? Do I contact you or Skiphop to get the tote?

    2. Hi Lacie! Oh, I am so sorry that I am just seeing this! I sent over your email to SkipHop this week, so I imagine you'll hear from them pronto. Let me know if not!

  15. I love the French Stripe as well. I had a Skip Hop for my first child and passed it on to a friend. Then I had another "unexpected" blessing:) I would love another Skip Hop bag for this little guy!

  16. I'd love the Duo Luxe French Stripe!

  17. I like the gray one - but I'd have to go with the stripes probably since it has way cuter handles and I like the metal rings for the straps! Wish I already had for our little weekend trip we are taking this Saturday down to Connecticut :)

  18. Shared on FB - and wanted to say we love so many of our other SkipHop products like the bath arm rest!

  20. Oh, goidnes!!!! I am seriously torn between the French Stripe and the Chevron! We looove to visit the coast and ho as often as we can. So fun, and just truly relaxing. With two kids in tow, we are always looking for good bags and this would make a good addition to our small stash! :)

  26. I've had this French Stripe diaper bag in an online shopping cart for a month, and just haven't bought it yet to replace my current Skip Hop! Maybe it's because I was meant to win it ;).

  51. Oh Sarah, I love Seaside, too! The last time I was there it snowed on the beach. There was about a 10 foot strip of sand between the snow and the ocean, from where the water had lapped up onto the shore. I'll never forget it!
