ONA Review/Giveaway Post

Before I start to tell you how awesome the Roma is, let me tell you how I fell in love with some of their products...

Take a look at them, those are camera bags! Aren't they so stylish?



I especially LOVE these...


(Katie, if you ever need somebody to review those beautiful bags, I am here for you! :) )

Well, usually before I write a review post, I always try to read and study the company I am representing. I went to their web site, and read some things and I went "Yes! I know exactly what you are talking about!"

Here is the part that I soo totally agree with written by Tracy, founder of ONA;

"I love photography. There's something truly magical about taking a photo that tells a story and captures the essence of a moment in time. So I carry my SLR camera everywhere. On dreamy vacations. To Sunday brunch with friends. To family gatherings and trips to the park. But I loathed carrying a camera bag that was clunky and distracting. On occasion, to avoid looking like a tourist, I even tried stuffing my camera into a stylish non-camera bag, wrapping it in scarves or t-shirts and hoping it wouldn’t come in contact with my other stuff. Inevitably, it did. And my camera ended up with the nicks and scratches to prove it..."

When I bought my DSLR, it was a packaged deal, so it came with the bag. I thought it was really neat to protect my camera, but soon I found that I didn’t like my bag. It is bulky, and it speaks loudly "I AM A CAMERA BAG!" I don't like that.

The bags created by ONA are true to their philosophy... camera bags should be discreet, stylish and functional.

I was given the chance to use one of their products Roma.


It is a camera insert, and boy I LOVE this already. A lot of the time, I don't want to take the whole bulky camera bag wherever I go. Roma is not going to be a replacement for the camera bag with ALL my lenses and accessories, but I was able to pack my DSLR and small lens and put that into my other bag that I wanted to carry that day. It didn't only serve as a camera insert, because of the five exterior pockets; it helped me organize my other stuff in the bag.

It is well made, very functional... and the best part of is, I am given the chance to do a giveaway for my readers! If you are the one lucky winner, you will understand why I was so excited about this product.

Ok, here are the rules to enter:

1. Head over to ONA and browse for a while and come back here and tell us your most favorite product. (1st entry)

2. Become a follower on my main page. (2nd entry)

3. Blog about this giveaway, tweet, become a fan on ONA’s Facebook page. (3rd entry)

I will run the giveaway until Monday the 21st and announce the winner on the 22nd.

Good luck every one!
