Funktion GIVEAWAY! Ditch your Diaper Bag!

I am so excited to share this NEW and AMAZING company with you. FUNKTION!

Stay tuned for a $199.99 Mommassentials set giveaway too!

As you know, I am all about practical products, ethical companies and giving back anyway you can to make a difference. Funktion says to, "Ditch your diaper bag!" I know at some point in your life you will know someone who is pregnant, you might get pregnant, or have kids and need some style and organization of your current hand bag!

Funktion realized the need for the essentials that MOST all diaper bags do not have. If they do have have nice features, it seems they're country bumpkin flower print or have Disney characters. And, well, that's not my thing. Being a Mom of 4 I need the essentials and that is it. I have seriously had 5 diaper bags in as many years. The bag I have now is perfect because of Funktion.

Let me break this down for you before you click purchase for yourself or that next shower gift.

Changing pad- This is amazing. It is a one-hand folding system and wipes up great! And it has a great a slot for the most fabulous wipe case.

Wipe case - This is my favorite. I have tried so many wipe containers and finally just resorted to a ziploc bag. Until Funktion. It keep the wipes MOIST and it does not open in my diaper bag! LOVE IT!

Bottle holder - Cutest bottle holder ever and it really works. I could fit 2 bottles in it. Great size.

Clutch- This is brilliant. I use it in my diaper bag, but you will also see me with when I am out with my girlfriends.

Grab bag - This in the beginning was such a much more stylish bag than a plastic bag for my blow out poop clothes. It is now used as my snack bag...I cleaned out the poop. Speaking of, remember this story?

Cosmetic case - Used for baby lotion, hand sanitizer, tampons, kid's lip balm and two of my lip glosses. This will always stay in my purse. Being a makeup artist I think I have had some super cute makeup cases. But, a coordinating cosmetic bag for my diaper bag. LOVE! It also keeps all of these essentials in ONE place vs. all the pockets you think you will use when purchasing a diaper bag and then you can never find ANYTHING!!

Paci purse- Because I have two babies right now, it's important to me that this little fella holds two paci's. Until the time comes to unplug them that is. :)

If you have your favorite handbag and/or a diaper bag that makes you still feel stylish and pretty. Keep it. Carry it. But, throw these beauties from Funktion in your bag. They are so essential to my EVERYDAY use. Not to mention the happy vibrant colors! And, let's not forget quality!

I have not carried a purse since Jonah was born (almost 9 months) and if you know me I love my purses. I have a cute diaper bag but would love to be able to carry one of my purses again plus everything I need for him. I too have struggled with finding a good wipes case. Thanks Crystal!

Grrrrl! The owner of a hair salon HAS to tote the bebes in style! I've got 3 now and many more unmade children on the way...Share the {random} high-quality, long lasting freebie love with a fellow mommy blogger and you yourself may just get blogged about.

For me it is not having a diaper bag that really works for me. I am always forgetting stuff and not really organizing it well. I need a new start with a new bag!

I haven't carried a purse for several years now because of my boys. I really could use this Funktion set, especially the clutch and cosmetic case so I can easily remove my essentials from the kid's stuff when I go out...whenever that might be. :)

I'm not pregnant...yet. But, I can remember the diaper bag from my childhood. Kelly green with little yellow flowers all over it. I'm surprised it held up through three kids. I'm surprised my dad carried it at times. I'm so glad I have more options that my mom did!!

Well, as my little guy hasn't arrived yet, I don't have any horror stories, but the organization of this bag seems great! I love the idea of the clutch and being able to keep it all in one place! Plus it seems like it would be best to start off with the right diaper bag instead of bum ones and I trust your reviews!

My biggest diaper bag problem is just going back and forth from the purse during the week to the diaper bag during the weekend. It's always just a big mess. This sounds like it might be just the solution.

Just tweeted this and anything my dear friend Crystal recommends, I would LOVE!
