You know how sometimes things are just meant to be? Well that is how I felt about this company. As mentioned in my previous post. My mom and I went on a search for a new Diabetes Bag. I really disliked mine although I was attached and have kept it because it was familiar. (ever hold on to something to long just because...) My mom discovered this great company called Stick Me Designs. Now to make it even better she lives right near me! I'm an instant gratification kind of person and I really want to see the bag and love it before I purchased it. With her being local this was easy. We met at a local book store one rainy Sunday afternoon and spent a few hours talking. Rickina had Gestational Diabetes. She didn't like the bags that were out there so she created her own. This lady is smart, and has a million ideas running around. She is like the kind of people you see on Shark Tank. Anyway I fell in love with her bag and purchased one. While I was doing that she agreed to let me give 2 away!! In addition to that she said if anyone purchased one from her she would give 15% back to our Walk Team. In the comments section you just tell her you are from Joshua's Rock Stars or mention my name.
I told her I would offer up my opinion on the bag and be very honest. I want to make it clear I purchased my bag and she gave me 2 to give away. Also check out her site because she has other products she has created and has some special clubs and great opportunities for you to get involved too! Also she has even set up special pricing if you join her VPS (Very Special Prickers club)
The first thing that I loved is the fact that everything has a place. Joshua is currently making the switch from Diluted Insulin to full strength insulin plus he has his lantus pen (he and Brian share one pen) It had a place for the glucagon pen and his meter. there are spaces I haven't used that are for remotes and such for a pump. You cant see it but in the middle of the 2 sides is a pocket as well and that is where I keep the lancing device.
In the mess pocket I keep the smarties, the used needles extra test strips and lancet pieces.
on the back there is a zipper pouch that fits my fruit snacks emergency, my out of the house log book and calculator.
there is an insulated pocket!!
and yet another zipper pouch. This is where our keytone meeter and strips live.
PROS: it is compact. When I am just running in the store it has emergency sugar options, and all the supplies I need with out my giant blue bag. Remember Joshua is 2 so we still have a "diaper" bag too. I love that it has the insulated pocket with it. I can put the little "frozen ice cubes" in the packet with the insulin when needed. I also love that when I open the bag nothing goes flying out!! THIS IS AMAZING!! I also love that it has some room to grow with us. We have added Brian's extra supplies to it which has saved us a few time and there is room as Joshua moves to a CGM and Pump (one day). I also love that she is right here in Va Beach, VA and is a Navy Wife. More than that I LOVE Rickina and her story. Cons: Right now, it only comes in limited boy colors. She is working on this. They have the most adorable owl print right now though that I would buy if Brian wouldn't kill me. I really cant find fault in this bag!
Also while you are on the website check out the other bags. She has an older bag that I am using as a wallet right now! I loveeeee it too!!
