Purse Bling {Review & Giveaway} Go hands-free with the Hip Klip and Klub Pocket

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

For a few hours in the morning, twice a week, Big Sister E heads off to "summer camp," where she has a great time playing and learning with a group of other preschoolers looking for some fun. So, two days a week Little Sister B and I have a little quiet time until, without fail, I glance at the clock and realize we have to hurry up and leave to go pick up her big sister.

When we get there, I have to show a card in order to be let inside, which I don't mind. It's good security, right? However, as I'm pretty much always wearing my standard outfit of yoga pants or sweatpants and a t-shirt or tank top, that means one thing: no pockets. So every week I fiddle with trying to keep track of the card, my car keys and Little Sister B as we go inside.

On the way out is worse because then I not only have the card, my keys and my daughter, but Big Sister E, her backpack and the random art projects she has created. In the past I stuck things in my shoe or tucked them into the waistband of my pants and ended up generally annoyed by it. I don't need the diaper bag and this isn't 1990 so I'm not going to wear a fanny pack... what does that leave?

Introducing my new favorite accessory: the Hip Klip and Klub Pocket from Purse Bling.
A patented clip that attaches securely and holds on tight, the Hip Klip itself is an attachable keychain that can grab right onto your waistband, purse, backpack, boots... pretty much anywhere! Use it on its own and never have to dig down to the bottom of your bag for your keys or worry about them falling out of a shallow pocket.

Opening and closing the Hip Klip is really easy and how could I not feel ready to hit the beach every time I see the cute flip flop design that I picked out? However, making a good thing even better, attach a Klub Pocket right onto the Hip Klip and you have an instant hands-free mini purse.

This specially designed 5.25" square wallet not only takes the place of carrying around an entire purse or bag when you don't really need to, it is lightweight and so completely easy to use. Bring it with when you are going for a walk, hanging out at the park, taking a bike ride, shopping at the mall, going to garage sales... pretty much anywhere that you would only need the necessities like your ID, keys, credit cards, etc.

On one side of the Klub Pocket you'll find a zippered compartment that is great for keeping things secure and safe and on the reverse, there is an open pocket that has just the right amount of room to tuck a cell phone or small camera right inside. Perfectly simple and convenient!

Since it arrived, I have used my Hip Klip/Klub Pocket Combo each time I have gone to pick up Big Sister E from camp and every time I shake my head and think of how much easier this has made it. With one clip, I hook it on and my hands are free to keep track of the kids instead... who actually also think the Hip Klip is pretty cool:

Purse Bling has a fun demo video on using the Hip Klip as well

The Hip Klip/Klub Pocket is just one of a long list of innovative and useful products from Purse Bling that help make life easier for women and their purses. With great items like their Purse to Go Organizer or the Decorative Purse Hangers to keep your bag off of the germy floor, Purse Bling has something to make getting along with your handbag just a little bit better.

As for me, I'm happy to trade in a little of my chaos for a cute, portable pocket that can go with me anywhere at any time. With four styles of Hip Klip and 25 Klub Pocket designs to choose from, that means you can customize your look 100 different ways - and there are new designs always being added! For $14.95 for the set (and $5.95 for a single Hip Klip in case you want an extra for just your keys or to make your Klub Pocket twice as secure), these are a handy thing to have around and make a great gift!

Ready to try out the new, hip generation of fanny pack? Thanks to the generosity of Purse Bling, one person will get to leave their bag at home and go hands-free, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of
Hip Klip/Klub Pocket Combo from Purse Bling!
