Pamela Fugate Designs: Custom Tote Bag Review

I recently had the chance to review a tote from the fabulous Pamela Fugate Designs shop on Etsy!

The tote that I chose, since I really LOVE using my reusable bags when I grocery shop, etc., was the R is for Recycle tote! I LOVED it!! It is really great quality and is made of 100% cotton canvas. Here are the specifications for this bag:

- 10 oz heavyweight natural canvas fabric
- Full side and bottom gusset
- 22" reinforced self-fabric handles
- Machine washable
- Measures 15" x 18" x 6"

I found the tote to be really roomy, and works well for me when I go out shopping. I really appreciate that it featured a great bottom gusset for extra durability and space.

My fave part is how nicely she packaged it. It came wrapped with tissue paper and had a twine tied around it. Very nice presentation! I think any of her totes, or items from her Etsy shop, would make an excellent gift!

Pamela is a graphic design specialist for over twelve years, and her company "Pamela Fugate Designs" specializes in all-purpose, custom graphic designs to fit anyone's needs. You can even have items personalized with names, logos, etc.

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought the Halloween Boo Bags were really cool, and could hold alot of candy! :) Her shop also has baby items and just about any Holiday design you could think of also! This Halloween bag is my favorite:

Fiber One Cereals- Review & A Quick Giveaway (CLOSED!)

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. I try to get my daily fiber intake, but it's not always easy.

Online colleges offer nutrition
for people who care about the relationship between food and

Fiber One cereals make it easy to incorporate more fiber into your daily diet by giving you at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving..As a matter of fact, some of the FiberOne cereals give you over 50% of your daily intake of fiber!

My BlogSpark recently gave me the chance to try 5 different varieties of Fiber One cereals. Being a huge fan of caramel, I thought I'd love the caramel delight, but I was disappointed in the taste. It had an "odd", "fake" taste to me. I LOVED all of the others with the Fiber One Raisin Bran Clusters being my favorite! It was SO delicious!
