A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
If you are a child of the 80's, then you probably remember what a fanny pack is. If you are like me, then you probably proudly toted one around, feeling rather stylish. Face it, fanny packs were beyond convenient! I had a purple one when I was younger, and my family went on a trip to Disneyland. My fanny pack came in handy because I never lost it, nor had the slightest worry about it getting stolen. My money and my chap stick were safe and sound when I went on all those exciting rides.
Fast forward- in my high school days, you would not have caught me dead with a fanny pack. At that time of my life, only nerds wore them, and I was not about to look uncool! So, needless to say, I hung up my fanny pack indefinitely, and did end up losing it. I ended up losing many wallets and purses because I was just too 'cool' to be seen with a fanny pack.
And then, I became a Mommy. I found myself WISHING that fanny packs were still a thing because it was so hard to carry around a purse, a diaper bag, and a squirming baby. How was I going to keep track of my car keys, wallet, lip gloss AND my those ever vanishing binkis? How convenient would that have been to have everything neatly packed away in a nice little fanny pack nestled snugly on my hip.
Now, my children are mostly grown, and I want to be one of those "cool moms." I still have one more child at home, and my days are not as crazy. However, I am not any more organized now than I was with three active little ones demanding my sanity. Cool moms use fanny packs! I promise, they DO!
I cannot stand carrying around purses when I go walking, running errands, or traveling. Purses are way too bulky, and they get in the way. I need a place to keep my essentials, such as my keys, cash, debit card, cell phone, a mirror, facial powder (because I get oily) AND my lipstick. I cannot leave home without those things at any given time!
I have found that the best place to find a great variety of really cool fanny packs is at fanny Factory. At Fanny Factory, they're reclaiming the fanny pack by taking its best features and making them better. And then punching up the style factor with awesome trendy patterns and prints.
I love my Tropi-Cool fanny pack! It features a small zipped pocket on the front and back, a large main compartment with a smaller zipped interior pocket, PLUS a hidden pocket under the top flap for discreet items. I can even carry tampons in it!
