Let's face it, we're busy women. With all the activities filling up our calendars on a daily basis -- from morning SoulCycle classes to work and then to the occasional Happy Hours -- we need a stylish bag to hold everything. The problem is, there hasn't been a stylish bag that can do it all -- until now.
Meet JEMMA's 'Birdie' bag. After hearing about my busy, always-on-the-go schedule, the brand's founder Joanna Lau told me that the 'Birdie' bag and I were a match made in heaven. I decided to test it out for a week to see what the hype was all about, and it's safe to say after trying it out for 7 days, I can't part with my 'Birdie' bag ever.
My daily schedule consists of early morning workouts, work and different events in the evening, so I needed a bag that could hold it all as I ran all over New York City.
For years, I had been throwing everything in a tote that held everything but the kitchen sink. But my bag was a disorganized mess -- it took me at least 10 minutes to find that moisturizer or lip gloss that I needed.

JEMMA's tote is a total game-changer because it literally has pockets for *everything.* From a wallet holder to a detachable key strap (no more lost keys!) and even a water bottle compartment, I am able to find what I need quickly.
For fitness junkies, it also makes going to the gym to work easy-breezy. An exterior ventilated shoe compartment easily fits a pair of sneakers, so you don't have to deal with your smelly shoes stinking up the rest of your bag. It also includes a washable drawstring bag for your gym clothes, which I was the most excited about because not all the workout studios I go to provide plastic bags to hold my smelly clothes post-workout. Of course, there's also a front pocket that will easily hold your laptop.
The best part about this tote? The luxuriously soft Italian nylon tote is easy to clean up if you accidentally spill your morning coffee. Its sleek and luxurious design also makes it a totally stylish bag for the girl on-the-go, and I can confidently carry it around town without worrying that it's a complete eyesore. The bag comes in an assortment of colors -- from black to tan -- but my favorite may be the stunning 'Oxford Blue' hue.
