o so gorgeous

Santa came early!


I’d been lurking the oGorgeous website since the new bags were released, and the above silver bag was on my Christmas list. I was beyond excited when my friend Cassey offered to send me one- it just arrived today. As you guys know, I hardly ever do product reviews on the blog, but wanted to help spread the word about these beautiful bags, especially since Cassey is a good friend of mine and is so very talented. 

I love the option of the short straps, or the long strap

and couldn’t wait to fill it up with some of my gym staples to take to work.

It has a lot of pockets, and there was plenty of room after I added the following:

bag (4)


-dry shampoo






(I don’t mess around with makeup in between classes, but if my face is washed and I have moisturizer and eyeliner on, all is bueno)

-outfit (Wunder Unders and tank)

-snacks (in case I want something different than what I brought, or need more fuel)


-Polar FT40

-iPod and headphones

*I forgot to add my bamboo facial cleansing cloths. They’re perfect for in-between sweaty classes

The bag has some amazing features, and I’m so excited to start using it every day. I was worried it might be too blingtastic with the sparkles, but it’s perfect. Ideal size, compartments for jewelry and extras

and clasps that rotate (tangled gym bag straps are no fun).


Bella was a fan, too 🙂


(I was totally holding a piece of chicken in my hand when the Pilot took that picture)

Tonight has been a pretty chill night. The Pilot was craving pizza, so he got takeout and I made something easy for myself at home.

It’s not the most visually appealing thing, but fantastic nutrients:


Greens, Goddess dressing, 2 baked sweet potatoes, heated up turkey (tempeh would be a good option, too), goat gouda, garlic, salt, pepper and chives

So good 🙂

I baked a sweet potato for this little thing, too.

Shower and bed are calling my name.

See ya in the morning!



Today’s tip: Do your bangs get curly after a sweaty workout, too? My favorite way to keep this from happening is to pull them tightly to the side and put one bobby pin to hold them down against my head. I look like a total goober, but when I take the bobby pin out, the bangs are still straight.

    the bag rocks and so does Cassie…she is SUCH a sweetheart!

    enjoy your bag and between that bag and your amazing looking diaper bag (which looks nothing like a ‘diaper’ bag b/c it’s so modern and fabulous)…you have hit the baggie lottery lately!

  9. Sylvia on December 14, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    I was totally eyeing that bag too! I’m so glad you love it. I WILL be at least begging the hubby for one 🙂

  10. Michaela on December 14, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    I absolutely ADOOOOOOOOOOOOORE her! She is simply amazing and I always do her workouts!
    And the bags, omg. A dream coming true, right?

  11. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food on December 15, 2011 at 12:40 am

    I’m very in love with that bag! I’m always lugging extra stuff with me because I always go right from work to teach Jazzercise. I feel like I’m traveling flying somewhere everyday with all the stuff I pack when I leave my house! That bag would be perfect!

  12. Krystina on December 15, 2011 at 12:50 am

    I’ve seen a couple of her bags recently and they’re SO cute! Love. 😀

  13. Claudia Mann on December 15, 2011 at 1:16 am

    That bag is beautiful. Will you please let me know where the bag was made at? I checked the website, but didn’t find the answer. Thank you.

    • Cassey @ Blogilates on December 15, 2011 at 4:48 am

      Hi Claudia! The bags are designed in the San Francisco Bay Area by me and are manufactured in Guangzhou. I have personally visited the factories there to make sure that everything is up to standards. If you have any specific questions, you can email me at cassey@ogorgeous.com and I can answer them for you!

  14. Lauren @ Sugar Coated Sisters on December 15, 2011 at 1:49 am

    Cassey pimped out a lot of bloggers! Love the sparkles.

  15. Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon on December 15, 2011 at 8:03 am

    Love the bag!
    And I had a similar dinner the other day only I topped mine with some leftover lentils and a blob of ricotta!

  16. Emily on December 15, 2011 at 8:09 am

    Oh my gosh, I too have been lurking on that website. The bags are so gorgeous! I just can’t justify spending that much, even if I use it as a purse too!

  17. Jessica @ brighteyesandbushytales on December 15, 2011 at 8:50 am

    I really really love that bag!! I’m thinking about getting the black one to use as a gym/work/travel bag! I am all about just a touch of sparkle! That bag will probably be great for you when the little one arrives, too! 🙂

  18. Lauren on December 15, 2011 at 9:20 am

    Gina! The bag is beeeeautiful! I am wondering how you feel it compares to the livewell 360 you used to use? Obviously the ogorgeous has a little more bling 😉

    • Fitnessista on December 15, 2011 at 10:59 am

      the 360 i have is much larger, so i tend to use it more as a travel or overnight bag. the livewell fabric is more like a cloth fabric, and the ogorgeous is like faux leather

  19. Alycia on December 15, 2011 at 9:24 am

    I love that bag! She also makes a gorgeous pink with with a bow on it.

    I love the Coach wallet too!

  20. Alison on December 15, 2011 at 9:32 am

    Love that bag, may have to add it to MY list! 🙂

  21. Katy on December 15, 2011 at 9:51 am

    OMG I love the bag!! Totally need to get one!!

  22. Dawn on December 15, 2011 at 9:55 am

    Love the bag, and love Cassey too! That colour would go perfectly with all my Lulu outfits…hmmm!!! Maybe a self-Christmas gift?? <3 Gina, that belly of yours is just getting cuter and cuter, wishing you all the best for the holidays and a very special delivery!! So exciting!! 🙂 <3

    • Fitnessista on December 15, 2011 at 10:58 am

      thank you, dawn! 🙂

  23. Rachel on December 15, 2011 at 10:19 am

    OMG! So prudy! I’ve been in need of a new gym back and I wanted something super cute but haven’t found anything I liked and I wasn’t going to settle!

  24. Debbie on December 15, 2011 at 10:33 am

    What is “Goddess” dressing?

    • Fitnessista on December 15, 2011 at 10:58 am

      from trader joe’s. annie’s makes it too, but it’s a creamy, herby dressing

  25. Chelsa on December 15, 2011 at 10:37 am

    The bag is so adorable. I workout at home so I wouldn’t need the bag for working out but It would be cute as a travel bag for my workout gear. I may just have to buy one. Thanks for sharing. I love reviews when they are real and you’re good at keeping it that way.

  26. Allison on December 15, 2011 at 10:41 am

    FAB bag!!! Loving glittery and sparkly things 😀 I have a bag of sweet potatoes that are dying to be used- maybe one will make an appearance tonight 😉

  27. Jackie on December 15, 2011 at 10:45 am

    I LOOOOVE that bag! I usually have one big bag with all of my work and gym stuff. Would a laptop be able to fit the bag?

    • Fitnessista on December 15, 2011 at 10:57 am


  28. Anna Crouch on December 15, 2011 at 11:29 am

    OMG. I want the black version of that bag! I may or may not have just *accidentally* emailed the link to my husband 🙂

  29. Pinky on December 15, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Oh man GINA you aren’t helping the bank account! After your reference I bought a Livewell 360 bag using an Open Skys deal and LOVE IT for my gym bag. But nooooowww I want a pretty ogorgeous bag. DARN! Maybe a bday gift from the bf!

    My sisters will love you though, I just bought them mat slings for Christmas….thanks!


  30. Alyssa @ Life of bLyss on December 15, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    oh my gosh, that bag really is gorgeous. I’d KILL for onna those puppies!

  31. Sonia (the Mexigarian) on December 15, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    I would mostly use my gym bag for pool equipment like my swim suit, goggles, cap, towel etc. Would this bag be okay to carry such wet things (even if I wrap the wet stuff in plastic bags)?

  32. Laura J. on December 15, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Love that bag!! I’d totally use it as an overnight bag (or diaper bag!) too 😉

  33. Barb on December 15, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Sold 🙂 I was so excited to see the promo code..I was on the fence about buying one, but the code pushed me over the edge.

  34. Megan Infantino on December 15, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    That bag is fabulous!!! Do you know what type of material it is? Is it washable?

  35. Elly on December 18, 2011 at 9:53 am

    I just ordered one the teal one for myself! I liked the lululemon ones since they could also nicely hold a laptop and yoga mat too, but these do all that and are in fun pretty colors.
