Out & About With Pixie Mood (With A Vegan Handbag Giveaway - CLOSED)





There are so many great things about spring and summer, not the least of which is a renewed desire to get out and about exploring. We can finally head out to enjoy our favourite destinations, whether city or country, without worrying about freezing our butts off. I'm looking forward to exploring art galleries, museums, parks, restaurants, outdoor concerts, city streets and festivals. Of course, when heading out to any of these fun spots for several hours, you want to be prepared. A good handbag is a necessity.

When I spotted Pixie Mood's new Arianna Backpack, I knew it would be the perfect thing for all my spring/summer outings. While I'm beyond the diaper bag phase, I still tend to carry lots of stuff. Snacks, hand wipes, cosmetics, money, keys, brochures - I'm not happy unless I'm well prepared. But I also don't want to weigh down my shoulders, neck and back with a giant backpack. The Arianna Backpack is a lightweight and stylish option for carrying my day-trip essentials. It has adjustable straps for comfort and a zipper closure to keep valuables safely in place.



These pictures of me using my Arianna Backpack were taken on one of our early spring outings to the Royal Ontario Museum. That's the Douglas Coupland: everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything exhibition. Like all of Pixie Mood's gorgeous accessories, the Arianna Backpack is vegan - all products are made with cruelty-free materials so no animals are harmed.​

Pixie Mood bags are fun and functional - bright, bold colours and unique designs with pockets and zippers for your phone and other necessities. They use a polyurethane vegan leather (PU-leather), which is higher quality than synthetic leathers such as vinyl or PVC and has less of a harmful impact on the planet. Each time I carry one of my Pixie Mood bags I get compliments. Last time I was carrying my Arianna Backpack a woman asked me where I got it and said, "You can tell it's good quality."
