Maizie's Favorites: Aleysa Bags

We are thrilled to share another monthly segment highlighting some of our favorite women-owned, small businesses.  In March, we featured In the Curious Kitchen - where comfort food takes innovative twists and turns! 

Alesya Bags is a Charleston, South Carolina, based company designing stylish laptop bags for hard-working women.  Every bag is fully lined leather and comes with two straps options - shoulder and crossbody. 
I asked founder Alesya Opelt Macatol what is her favorite entertaining tip, and she shared:
Martha Stewart is my entertaining role model, but the best home chef I know uses the Pillsbury pre-made pie crust.  Secret: You cannot tell the difference between store-bought and homemade!  Use the rest of your favorite Martha recipe for the filling."      
When asked about her favorite hostess gifts she shared that they fall into two categories - “Consumable or Frivolous”:
“ The Gray Ghost Bakery Chocolate Espresso cookies make a lovely nightcap or breakfast treat. Old Whaling Bath Bombs are sure to delight if your host has children. A beautifully illustrated Charleston Coffee Mug from The Tiny Tassel with a side of coffee beans from King Bean Roaster is always appreciated.  I start my day with 20 Strong. The Dash Mini Waffle Maker looks like a toy, but works better than my big fancy waffle maker!"
