I recently was given the opportunity to review a handbag from Glass Handbag. I am very excited to share my experience
Had you asked me a month ago about my favorite handbag, you would have received a confident answer. “Coach!!!!!!” Without a doubt, I have collected Coach for many years. To be honest I cannot remember the last time I carried any other kind of handbag.
I’ve always believed that a girl cannot have too many handbags. Now my husband would not agree. haha. Okay, cannot say that I blame him.
As a mother of four children it’s not often mom get’s to splurge or spoil herself, a new handbag is such a treat. I don’t get handbags for holidays, lol I guess I am picky and hard to please. I call it, I know what I like. I am not picky about much, just handbags and shoes. The way I look at it is, if I am going to spend money on something I want to be sure it’s what I want. Let’s face it if you’re a fan of Coach, they don’t come cheap. I personally have to save up, it’s a nice reward now and then.
What can I say, I love handbags and shoes, lol. Okay, we better move on. I could talk about my addiction for ever. Yes, that would be where the blah-blah in Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog came from.
Thanks to my new amazing friend, the owner and talented designer at Glass Handbag, I have been introduced to a new brand. To be completely honest I was a little worried about the review, I’ve always been a Coach girl. Things change I guess, because now this mom is rock in an awesome Glass Handbag.
Let me tell you a little about Glass Handbag. They launched there business in 2010 and developed a luxurious handbag with an integrated lighting system. The handbag is still fully functional. These luxury bags have a built-in panel light; when you open your bag to find something, there’s light. They are hand-made by extremely skillful craftsmen. One takes pride in the leather work, another on hardware, and third is electronics.
I asked the owner/designer of Glass Handbag, “What made you put a light in a handbag.” She responded with, “I think every girl should have a luxury handbag and not have to dig around to find keys, lipstick, or anything else. I’ve always wanted to see one with a light in it. So I got bored and decided to go for it.”
When I was asked if I would choose a handbag, it seriously took me 3 days to choose. I had my husband and daughter helping. The selection that Glass Handbag is amazing, definitely one of the toughest accessory shopping choices I’ve made so far. I take my handbag and shoes selection pretty serious, lol. I know it sounds funny, but I really do. There’s nothing better than rockin a handbag that you love. After going back and forth, I event sleept on it for a few days I decided to go with the Diamond Girl Leather Handbag in silver.
I received my handbag in no time, I honestly thought it would have taken much longer. It was delivered in a huge box, I almost thought it was something else. Once I opened the big box there was the Glass Handbag logo. The box that it came in was fabulous, I knew by the box I just received an extremely well made product. Once I opened the box, it was love at first sight. I had to sit back and marvel over it in the box, I almost didn’t want to touch the handbag, it was so beautiful. The leather the handbag is made out of is definitely high quality leather.
Once I took my Diamond Girl Handbag out of the box, I realized how well made it actually was. I then installed the batteries, it was extremely easy to put the batteries in. Simply slide the back of the battery pack off, install 2 AAA batteries, and slip the back on again. You’re done, it’s really that easy. I was ready to show it off. WOW, talk about spoiled! I had forgotten all about the light inside, when I opened it there was a blue light. Now, this I could get used to!
I immediately ran out of my office. Oh, I forgot to let you know that I had my bag delivered to my work. I ran out of my office to showed all the girls my new handbag. I think we all forgot that we were at work for a few minutes, lol. We even had one of our customers joining in the fun. It’s funny when you show everyone how many people say something about the light inside. I’ve heard, “I have always wondered when someone would put a light in a handbag“, “I have thought about putting a light in a my purse“, and “finally a one with a light.” It’s funny, most women have thought this at least a time or 12, but Glass Handbag actually did it.
So what all comes with the Glass Handbag? Inside the box I found inside a product catalog, instructions explaining how to work the light, a dust bag, more batteries, more batteries, and the handbag of course. Something else that I found neat, was the batteries that came with my Diamond Girl Handbag. The batteries said Glass Handbag on them and had the logo. Thought that was a very nice touch to an already amazing product.
The light on the inside is simply amazing. It lights up a blue color, and is bright enough to find anything you’re going to need. When you open your handbag the light comes on, and when you shut it the light goes off. Reminds me of how a refrigerator works, in a way. Let’s face it, there’s probably a time every women who carries a bag of some kind, has needed a light to find something in that dark hole, but settled for the cell phone method. I have used the light already more times than I can count.
I have to admit, the light on the inside is by far my favorite feature. I feel like I am always searching for something in that deep dark hole in my old purse. No more digging, I can see what’s in the bottom of my purse now. I also love the color, it’s gives it an elegant touch. I also like blue, so much better than a normal yellow colored light.
Another feature I found really useful is the metal feet on the bottom. I am known for setting my handbag down while I load kids, grab kids, grab something, it seems like I have to set it down all the time. I love that there’s actually some form of protection when I need to set it down. Glass Handbag really have out done themselves.

I think one of my biggest pet peeves has to be customer service, if I ever get horrible service I won’t go back. I don’t care how much I like a product and if it’s the only place on earth to get it, give me bad customer service and I will not return. I can guarantee you’ll receive wonderful customer service from the amazing group at Glass Handbag. I’ve become friends with the owner/designer and she’s the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. She is a wonderful women, that takes pride in what she does and it shows. She’s extremely kind-hearted and I wish her all the luck in the world with her amazing business. I know she’ll go far. Rest assured that if customer service is important to you, then you’ll defiantly be happy.
The handbag is amazing, well made, and it’s obviously made with a lot of TLC. They’re well thought out and everything that goes into making a Glass Handbag is top of the line materials. Even my 2-year-old is in love with mom’s Glass Handbag. Every chance she get’s she’s in it checking it out and messing with the awesome light. Makes me one proud mommy. What can I say girls already got an eye for amazing handbags. Oh, yes she can use a credit card too, lol. I still cannot get over the time that had to have been put into this bag, from start to finish, you can tell there’s a lot put into it. Everything right down to the box. I actually still have the box in my closet, it’s just too nice to toss out.
