Do I Really Use All the Things that I Unbox?

Is unbox an actual word? I genuinely am not sure, but I do know that I did not get the red squiggly line underneath it, so we’re going to go with it. On the internet we always see influencers unboxing things that they’ve either received or have a deal on and you’re always left wondering do they actually use those items once they’re done with their campaign?
Well I’m not as fortunate as those influencers and no one is paying me to post (yet), so that leaves me using the items that I buy. Trust me, I know some of the items I get are expensive! My bank account knows it too and because of that I make sure that I get some use out of the bags that I love to talk about on this website.
Today though I’m going to talk about two bags that I brought on vacation with me! The Muzmm backpack that I unboxed here, and the Gatta Lola Noir that I unboxed here! I brought both of these on my recent vacation with my fiancé and we definitely got some good use out of them.
Let’s start with my Gatta bag. Now if you follow me on social media then you know I love my Christie Tan. It is definitely a favorite of mine and I use it a lot. I regret not bringing it on vacation with me, but then I wouldn’t have really tried out this bag. I shoot with the Olympus OMD EM1 Mark II and I love it. Even my fiancé loves it because of the quick shutter button when he’s being my personal paparazzi, but we’re not here to talk about cameras. We’re here to talk about my experience with this bag. So this camera is no small thing and this bag holds it phenomenally. I put it in lens first and the body of the camera still has some room to spare up top. There’s a divider in there as well, which helps to separate my other thing like chapstick, lipstick, and my wallet from my camera.

I don’t like that there aren’t any places for memory cards or small pockets so that nothing gets lost. That is a big downfall for me. Especially without a zipper or a strong closing on the bag, once it turns over on its side by accident everything comes falling out.  It is super adorable, but the overall organization and security of the bag leaves a lot fo be determined.

Now on to this three in one backpack. We are using it a lot! It’s great for these beach adventures and taking everything around the ship. We have been able to keep towels, tripods, and small things in it with ease. It does have a laptop sleeve in it and a small inside pocket. It also has a front pocket. Other than that the bag is basically a duffle bag, so to better organize it I like to put some smaller things into carry all pouches and then put them in the bag. The two small pockets through out the bag though have been super helpful. It fits two beach towels in there with ease and room to spare. It also has a water bottle pocket on the side that has been helping to keep us hydrated in all of this warm weather. I honestly wish that I had brought both backpacks because I got the 20L and the 30L styles, but I have a hard time giving up my beach bag that I bring up every trip. I mean it has my name on it…and elephants… I can’t give that up.

For any adventure or beach vacation or trip, I would definitely recommend the backpack. It’s easier to add smaller items into separate bags and then put it in the bag, or to dump them into the front pocket. As far as bags that I’ve purchased go, this one is probably the most affordable one I’ve bought and you can get 20% off using the link here. It comes in a variety of colors and styles that will fit your personality. I tried to pick something that would look normal for both me and for Eric to carry. I would definitely recommend this bag.
