This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thanks so much to our wonderful sponsor Eenamaria, We look forward to working with you again! The lucky winner is 'Lisa'. (We post the comment/follower name of all winners, that's why we put it in quotes!) Remember: There are still some great giveaways active on the upper right hand side of the page!

"If you live by different rules and see yourself as an Urban Nomad, a life-traveler who knows her way even in places she's never been before.The one leading to the most sensational salsa club, the fastest ski slope, the hottest job, the most interesting people. Sexy. Secure. Life lived in free-style. Eenamaria is you."

Ascending Butterfly and our friends at Eenamaria would like give you a place to stash all that cash you saved on Black Friday sales!

I was sent the 'Workin It' bag (pictured above) for review, and I just can't get enough of this bag, it's incredibly versatile, transitions well from day into night, and is roomy enough to tote my commuter essentials (and stand up to the wear and tear) without me having to carry TWO separate bags. (I  absolutely hate having to carry multiple bags on a daily basis!). This bag can even accomodate a laptop without the strap buckling! Everyone who knows me knows I carry around way to much stuff on a day to day basis and everyone has been amazed at exactly how much I can pack into it! (Yes I know it's bad for me and my poor shoulders, but I've really narrowed myself down the bare essentials) If you are anything like me you want form and function. A generic messenger bag just won't do as the only compromise between carrying everything you need or looking good while doing it. I want both! And for the frugal fashionista, you are not only getting form and function, you are adding an accesory staple to your wardrobe for an amazing price! (Have you priced a laptop bag lately?)

This bag is definitely a Holiday Buying Guide Editor's Pick!

Thanks to our friends at Eenamaria we have a cure for your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping blues, a place to stash all that cash you saved by being a savvy shopper! (ARV $70) You deserve a treat!

WIN IT! - One lucky 'Ascending Butterfly' will have the chance to win an Eenamaria 'Workin It' Bag as shown above of their own! (gentlemen you are not excluded, tell us which lucky lady in your life would be receiving this as a gift)
