A lot of my friends have kids, and in the past few months, a few of them have welcomed new babies. For a new mom (or an experienced mom with a new infant), finding the right diaper bag is a must, but it seems like quite the feat.

Many of you have heard me mention my coveted and beloved Proenza Schouler Crocodile PS1, and I’ve long promised to bring you the story of how I nabbed it for such a great price and how much I love it.

There are so many e-commerce sites filled with beautiful bags that it can be hard to narrow down who has the best bags and bag deals at any given time. Every week we bring you the deals of the week, and sometimes I end up finding more deals that are too good to pass up between those posts.

Event: A Day of Shopping for Sweets and Treats

Our Bags: Chanel Large Boy Bag and Chanel Mini Boy Bag

What To Do: A great day of shopping includes looking for accessories and apparel, as well as finding the perfect sweet treat to end the day.

Seriously, words could never explain just how much my mom means to me. My mother is simply amazing, and I feel incredibly lucky to have such an amazing woman as my mother. I’m not alone in this feeling, and celebrating our mothers for just one day will never be enough.

This week at PurseBlog is dedicated to our moms, leading up to Mother’s Day this Sunday.

To kick it off, we decided to showcase some of the places in the city that we love going with our moms, along with the bags we love to carry for our mother-daughter dates (or the bags we’d like to carry!).

Bag: Coach Bleecker Sullivan Hobo

Price: $378 via Coach

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Coach has been knocking it out of the park with its bags over the past couple of seasons. We took the brand’s Spring 2014 collection on a tour through New York recently, and I fell in love with spring’s edgepaint bags.

Time continues to fly by, and today we welcome May to our calendars.

The saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and with the start of May, we wanted to kick things off with a fun video. Starting today, we will be welcoming each new month with a fun video celebrating one of our favorite bags of the moment.

We talk about a woman’s main accessory, the handbag, all the time, but I feel like we leave out the smaller accessories sometimes. That ranges from the pouches you carry in your bag to the key fob you use to organize your keys.
