Giveaway: Epiphanie Bags

This giveaway is now closed. Check back soon for the winner!

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s  Home for the Holidays!  We’ve got 15 giveaways across the entire network this week—all great gift ideas, perfect for the holidays.

Today I’m psyched to give you a chance to win a gift for yourself, or for another lucky lady in your life:

That’s right—we’re starting things off with an Epiphanie Bag! I’ve had my eye on one of these since I first saw them at a blog conference a few years ago, and in the few short weeks I’ve had one, I’ve been completely impressed.

Valued at $155 to $188, these are high-quality handbags that double as durable camera bags, too!

Learn more about Epiphanie Bags and how to win one.

I love that I no longer need to carry around a utilitarian-looking camera bag when I tote around my DSLR. With this one bag, I can carry my camera equipment and my normal purse stuff!

All the dividers are removable (and moveable), so I’ve actually taken them all out and used my Lyric bag as a laptop bag. It works wonderfully! And I love the bright, happy color.

Epiphanie Bags are the brainchild of Maile, a San Antonio-based photographer, blogger, and mom. She calls herself a “man bag liberator.” Love that.

One reader will win an Epiphanie Bag of her choosing!
