Winners are:

Laptop Backpack – Aimee W.
Luggage Tags – Celeste, Donita, Denise, Nadia, Abby, Jessica P


For the last several months, I’ve been on the search for a good laptop carrier. I’m constantly taking my laptop with me on trips, to my neighborhood Starbucks, or to the doctor’s office for a long wait. And plenty of little scuffs and scratches on my laptop will prove that I haven’t had a good carrier for my little outings.

casauri laptop backpack fun fasionable modern womanUntil now.

In my search for the perfect carrier, I was hard pressed to find something that was functional, but cute at the same time. Plenty were the black, masculine briefcase style carriers. But a girl needs something girlie, am I wrong?

So you can imagine my excitement when I came across Casauri, makers of fun and functional bags, cases and carriers. Casauri is 100% women-owned, women-run, and minority-owned, by sisters Helena and Emily McHugh.

casauri backpack laptop interiorWhen I received my backpack, I was already expecting something fashionable, with a modern striped design. But what I wasn’t expecting was the workmanship and quality in every detail.

Featuring a fully padded interior flap pocket for a laptop, zipper pockets to organize small items, two front zipper pockets, a back pocket for a magazine or paperwork, you’ll never run out of space for all your papers and every day necessities. The shoulder straps are fully padded and adjustable, made of water resistant polyester.

Casauri also offers many other items including laptop portfolio cases, carry-on bags, luggage, iPod and camera cases, ID cases, wallets and more.

To enter, check out all the wonderful products over at Casauri and then leave a comment in this post by next Friday, March 6 at midnight (MST).

    The Weekender bag in Sky Blue would suit me just fine. And I could use the Passport case too (in Slate Blue) since I just got my passport renewed. It would keep my passport clean and tidy for the next ten years without a doubt.

I have a lot of school books, and every bag I buy tends to fall apart on me quite quickly, which is annoying! I love this bag, and all of your bags are really cute!

    Tough choice…but I would have to go with the Laptop Brief 15.4″ Style No. LB1511. And I just cannot decide between the Natura Brown and Sunstripes for color.

    Oh my goodness, there are so many cute products! I’m all about the laptop backpacks, though; I have an over-the-shoulder carrier, but with all the stuff I carry in and out of work I’ve been lusting over backpacks for my laptop. I totally want to win it. Like, a lot a lot. A lot. I also like the messenger back and loads of other stuff. But they pale in comparison. Did I say I want it a lot? Just making sure.

    P. Jozette Edwards Says:

    I absolutely adore the striped backpack. I have a two year old and that would be a great diaper bag accessory for him. I find that I spend a lot of time on my laptop, so this bag really can come in handy for me. Carrying a purse is cumbersome, so a book bag allows my hands to be free to keep up with the two year old! I’ll tell all of my girlfriends about your site. I have no problem with that!
