Diabetes Product Review (and giveaway) – Stick Me Designs

Stick Me Designs

I went for a walk this weekend. A long walk – diabetes-wise – at over 3.5 miles. Long enough to need some supplies.

  • My DexCom receiver
  • apartment keys
  • True2Go meter (smallest meter/lacing device I own)
  • tube of glucose tables

When the weather is nice and my laundry is done, I typically wear basketball-style shorts with big enough pockets to carry everything. This weekend, I was in yoga pants with no pockets and knew just what I needed from my diabetes supply closet.

In 2007, I found a company that was making diabetes “cute.” In a world of plain black cases, Stick Me Designs was something exciting a different. I purchased a small clutch – the same clutch that I used on my walk this weekend.

Not only are the products cute – they are also well made and survive years of abuse use. This is the picture from the original 2007 post. For me, this wristlet is the perfect size for those times when you need more than just your meter but don’t want to carry ALL your supplies.

When I saw that Stick Me Designs was hosting a “Keep/Try and Giveaway” on Facebook a few weeks ago, I had to enter. I was thrilled to be chosen and quickly chose my favorite design (keep an eye on this blog for the other review).

I’m loving the Lotus Lily pattern that I chose. I like girly stuff as much as the next woman, but am not a huge fan of pink. I wanted something feminine without screaming PINK and this fit the bill.

I <3 this pattern!

The deluxe clutch is little bigger than the wristlet. For me it is the perfect size for a road trip, or when I will be away from home for a while. Let me explain –

As an insulin pumper, I am a bit spoiled. I work close enough to home that all I typically carry with me is my meter and a tube of glucose tablets. Refills, site changes, and any other trouble shooting can happen in the comfort of my home. But (for example this weekend!) when I’m traveling, I’ll pack everything.

In addition to my “normal” stuff, I’ll need an extra tube of glucose tablets, at least one site change (just in my purse the rest in my carry on), a vial of insulin, ketone meter, ketone strips, extra test strips, back-up meter, and who knows what else. The Deluxe Clutch has a place for it all, and it even has an insulated pouch for the insulin.

endless options inside!
insulated pouch!

If you need a great travel bag, or you need to carry more supplies on a daily basis, this clutch is perfect for you.

The founder of Stick Me Designs, Rickina, experienced gestational diabetes during her pregnancy, which is what inspired her to develop her company and she has been a great member of the diabetes community for as long as I can remember. She is the place to go when you need a great product to feel better about the daily hassles of diabetes.

Please check out all the products over at the Stick Me Designs store.

While you are doing that, are you feeling chic? Well, than I have the PERFECT solution!

I am giving away a Deluxe Clutch in the beautiful Scroll Chic design.

Check out this pattern!

I am headed somewhere FABULOUS to celebrate (among other things) my 9th diaversary.

Leave a comment on this post by Sunday February 5th at midnight and I will randomly select a winner from the comments when I’m done celebrating rocking diabetes one more year!

  • Alyssa says:

    We may be diabetic, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be fashionable as well! Happy diaversary!

  • Rebecca Mumford says:

    10 years of a plain black case is more than enough for this chic!
    Like everyone else, I’m so tired of the boring bag my meter
    came in, and have been looking for something classy.
    Something that actually has the space for everything I need to carry
    with me daily.
    The Deluxe Clutch in the Scroll Chic design is exactly
    what I’ve been wanting — it’s soooo roomy and sooooooo me. 🙂

  • Joanne says:

    Ohhhhhh, pretty! Love the design… sign me (well, Elise) up!

  • Debra says:

    I love this bag. I would love to win it 2/2/12 is my 1 year d-versary.

  • carrie says:

    The lotus pattern looks great on the outside, but mostly I just leave my meter open when home, so I would just be looking at the black inside. Can you specify a different interior? I have been thinking of getting one for a long time now. Well two actually! If I win, that would solve half of the battle. 🙂

  • Lisa Chiles says:

    Very prettty, I’ve been dropping hints to my hubby that I would like one for my birthday.

  • Nicola Downie says:

    Hi my 12yr old daughter would love to win a fancy bag for her diabetes kit, she was diagnosed 7months with type1 after an emergency admission to hospital. She has coped astoundingly (as i’m sure other diabetics do too!) injecting 4times daily and has returned to her much loved sport…tae kwon do. Winning this bag would be something special to her!!! 🙂
