Sometimes I think I might as well carry a rolling suitcase around when I go out with my daughter. For about a year after my daughter was potty trained, I used to carry her diaper bag around, just because it was the perfect size to fit all of her “necessities”. Regardless of where we go, you never know when she’ll need a Band-Aid, Neosporin, snacks, small toys, a sippy cup full of water, sunscreen, wipes or even tweezers.
Then, there are the times, when I venture out alone. Maybe I’m making a quick shopping run. Maybe I’m going to the gym (BIG maybe). Maybe I’m going to a long-overdue hair appointment. Or, even better, maybe I’m going out to dinner and a movie with Hubs or on a much-needed girls’ night out. I used to have to rummage through my closet for a small purse and credit card wallet. Then, I’d proceed to empty out the contents of my wallet and switch them to the smaller wallet and purse. If the purse was too small, I’d stuff my iPhone into my coat pocket, separately. So, every time I would look for something, I’d have to check multiple places. I’m confused and annoyed, just trying to explain it.
Well, BellaVita recently sent me a sample of their iPhone 4/4S Wristlet. At first, I was unsure how I’d feel about carrying one wallet with all of my credit cards, driver’s license, cash and iPhone in it? Then, I realized how much time it saved me, moving from activity to activity. It’s perfect for a busy mother with everything in one place.
It’s a brilliant concept and design. There’s still a plastic window for my driver’s license, since everyone still cards me when I buy alcohol (okay, only when I’m wearing a hat. Okay, sometimes when I’m wearing a hat). There’s a slot for my credit card and ATM card. And, there’s an inside slot for cash or phone numbers (if you’re single). Okay, I haven’t been single in a long time, so maybe people don’t write down numbers on napkins anymore. They just save them as a “contact” in their iPhone. Well, the wallet holds your iPhone 4/4S, so problem solved. And, there’s a camera hole, so you can take pictures of your friends or kids without pulling your phone out of the sleeve.
As a mother, the BellaVita iPhone 4S Wristlet is perfect for quick outings. There’s a wrist strap, so I can just pull the wallet out of my giant, kid-friendly purse and run into the grocery store, after I drop my daughter off at preschool. Or, if my hands are full, it’s small enough to fit in my coat pocket. The wrist strap is detachable.
The BellaVita iPhone 4S Wristlet is not only functional, but it’s genuine leather and comes in six different colors. I chose Vita Cioccolato (dark chocolate) and it matches most of my wardrobe perfectly. I would recommend it to any mother that finds herself constantly on the go, but doesn’t want to sacrifice style for functionality.
