THEIT Bag – The “IT” Bag

Are you a photo lover like me? Do you like to capture life’s moments β€” your vacation, your baby’s first steps or even the simple things in life such as the delicious meal you are about to eat? Are you a beauty or fashion blogger who loves to take photos of products you’ve purchased, events you’ve attended or your make-up/outfit of the day?

If you said yes, to any of these questions, then girl, will you enjoy what I have in store for you!

I have both a DSLR and a point & shoot camera.
You probably agree that a DSLR camera has better photo quality hands down! But there are days where I just don’t want to lug around that big, heavy thing with me!  So I just resort to my point & shoot camera or most often than not, my iPhone camera and just sacrifice the quality.

Sometimes being lazy and opting for a lightweight, small camera size vs. photo quality isn’t such a great idea. Especially if you are travelling on vacation.  After many weeks of contemplating whether I should bring my DSLR on my trip to Europe, I reluctantly decided to leave it at home.

Why, you ask? Although my Lowepro Slingshot camera bag is very comfortable and practical, I must admit, it doesn’t look fashionable! It just wouldn’t have looked good with my trendy outfits walking down the streets of Paris, Venice, Barcelona, etc. Also, I felt like this bag just screams, “Tourist!” and I didn’t want to be called out like that.

Back in October I was contacted by Nicole, Founder & Creative Director of THEIT bags. She is being featured in a media book called, CRAVE Toronto The Urban Gal’s Manifesto for its second edition β€” a book which features successful and inspiring female entrepreneurs in Toronto. She said what drew me to her was not only my talent, but my passion to follow my dreams and my eagerness to inspire others. (I liked her already! :P)

She contacted me to inquire on my make-up rates for her photo appearing in the CRAVE Toronto media book as well as my rates for her THEIT bag’s upcoming lookbook. I happily gave her my rates and couldn’t wait to work with her.

I actually heard about her THEIT bag from a mutual friend of ours last year when the THEIT bags were launched. As being an aspiring photographer, I thought her bags were the greatest idea ever … a fashionable & trendy camera bag β€” the “IT” bag!

Pronounced as one word – “THEIT” bag – is a modern, chic camera bag used to capture life’s moments in style. Why didn’t I think about this bag before I went on my trip? It would’ve been the perfect thing to carry my DSLR in without being afraid that it clashes with my outfits as well as ensuring it’s protected!

This high quality, water-resistant bag has a detachable chained strap to wear as a cross-over or on your shoulder. With adjustable and removable compartments to insert and organize your camera body, flash, lens, batteries, etc., this purse is padded to protect the gear inside.  There is even a compartment for your Ipad or tablet. On days where you don’t want to bring your camera, you can remove the inserts (if you’d like) and just use this bag as a regular purse! How awesome is that?!

So last week, I finally had the opportunity to meet and work with the beautiful and intelligent face behind this THEIT brand. Nicole, a previous flight attendant who had the same dilemma as moi β€” wanted to capture life’s moments and travel with style while having peace of mind that your camera is safe. This is what inspired her to create the THEIT bag.

Below is her before and after photo for the CRAVE Toronto photo shoot.
