Hadaki and Reisenthel Review and Giveaway

I have been needing a new wallet for a little while now. The current wallet that I have doesn't hold much, and for some reason doesn't stay snapped shut properly. All of my credit cards fall out inside my purse because of this. It's annoying and I am constantly on the hunt for whatever I need.

Hadaki sent me one of their large money pods (their name for a large wallet) and Reisenthel sent me a Mini Maxi Shopper Bag.

First, let me tell you who Hadaki is: *description taken from website.
* HADAKI is all about affordable luxury and fashionable function.
* HADAKI products feature top quality materials and fine workmanship.
* HADAKI products are eco-friendly, free of AZO and Phthalates/DEHP, DBP, BOP and other harmful chemicals.
* HADAKI products are easy to maintain, with most surfaces featuring water resistant and wipable fabrics and finishes.
* HADAKI consumers include students, young professionals and anyone who appreciates fun and funky design that
makes life easier.
* HADAKI is based in New Orleans where we draw from the city’s energy and vitality to create exciting new designs.

I love Hadaki. I think their line is fun and full of life and energy. I love brightly colored and unique pieces, just like what they offer.

I received the large money pod:



I really love this wallet. It's a large size, big enough to hold everything I need. It has multiple compartments for credit cards, cash, change, receipts, and anything else. I think the colors are cute and perfect for summer. I love the inside print too. It's funky. I like that the outside zips up because nothing can fall out that way.

Reisenthel is a 39 year old German company with a concept to make products that are extremely functional and versatile-perfect for everyday mobility and storage needs.



Reisenthel sent me a great Mini Maxi Shopper! I received an orange one called "bubbles." It's a reusable shopping bag that is extremely handy. Sometimes you don't want to carry groceries by hand, it's so much easier to carry them in a bag on your shoulder. The print of the bag is so cute, and the bag itself is of a good sturdy quality. It can't tolerate anything extremely heavy, but it can hold a few groceries.

Folds up easier, ready to use quickly! The handles are also longer, so it's more comfortable to wear on the shoulder.

A fun way to help the environment and use less disposable bags - a good eco friendly idea, and no sacrifice at all!

Holds 15 liter (about 4 gallons), max weight capacity about 15 kilos (30 lbs).

  45. I would like to win for a similar reason that you needed a new one--in my case it is just the coin purse, it gaps so that the change falls out.

  53. These products are great. I love the hadaki money pod, Medallion Collection in passion. This is just what I need, a wallet large enough to keep all my cards and receipts.(I love that they're made in New orleans.) And the Reisenthel bag looks beautiful. I use as many re-useable bags as possible to help our environment. Thanks!.

  56. I have problems with wallets these days. They do not make them large enough to hold check books, cards, (especially with all of the store cards you get now). I currently have a wallet, check book holder and coin purse in my purse. This gets bulky and time consuming which is why I would love to win this giveaway. In the market for a new purse as well.
