a garden bag {giveaway} with apolis...


I love the mission behind Apolisa socially motivated lifestyle brand that empowers communities worldwide. While Apolis carries mostly mens' clothing and accessories, I've always loved their bags for myself; I find them to be the perfect mix of casual and polished.



So, in celebration of Mother's Day, I've partnered with the guys at Apolis to give away this Apolis + Kinfolk garden bag (which retails for $78) to one lucky reader. The bags are handcrafted by a women's artisan co-op in Bangladesh and finished in California. While the garden bag was designed for gardening and picnicking, it's been perfect for using as a baby bag for Ruby. The multiple outside pockets come in handy for having quick access to toys, games, snacks, and other toddler necessities. (And I'm all about baby bags that don't look like baby bags.)

To enter, simply visit Apolis' website and then leave a comment here telling me how you'd use the bag. Entries must be posted by this Monday, May 6th, at 8 a.m. PST, and one winner will be chosen at random*. And, you can see more from this fun day shown right here...

P.S. Apolis is offering a special 20% off discount sitewide for Oh Joy readers for Mother's Day. Enter code OHJOY20 at checkout through May 12th, 2013. And, if you're in the United States and want to receive the Garden Bag before Mother's Day use the ADDITIONAL code MOTHERS for free USA "2-Day" shipping through Tuesday, May 7th.

Both codes are exclusively available to Oh Joy readers.

UPDATE: Congrats to Doris R. from Dallas, TX for being our winner this time!
