Being a Mummy is great, I love everything about it and wouldn’t change it for the world.
Yet there is one thing I miss and that’s a bag for me – not full of bottles, nappies, wipes, toys and child related paraphernalia. Pre-children I had loads of bags, these now live unloved at the bottom of my wardrobe gathering dust.
Recently Britmums Live gave me a great excuse to use a Mummy bag again. Now I wanted something a little different from my changing bags or my usual bags and I had been eyeing up all the wonderful satchels around recently.
Now satchels are highly fashionable at the moment however they come with a high price tag – yes this is because they are made from leather and made to last however for me on a limited budget and knowing how often I would use an expensive satchel I decided that a cheaper option in a funky design was a perfect option for me.
It’s with huge thanks to The Bag Hut that I had a funky Owl Satchel to take to BritMums with me and they also provided me with a matching purse too – it’s thanks to this bag that many people were able to recognise me too.
|Owl Cambridge Satchel in Pink|
This satchel is HUGE. It is called a Cambridge Satchel. Made from oilcloth it is easy to wipe down if necessary, it is an Anna Smith LYDC design with a full over flap which closes with metal clasps. Inside is a front pocket and a fully zipped integral bag, opening this large zip you will find a small zipped pouch pocket to the back and 2 internal pockets for a phone or camera etc. It is fully lined inside and has a large adjustable leather shoulder strap. An additional feature is the id window.
Size: H 27 x W 36 x D 13 cm
Inside this bag I could easily add a note book, phone, pens, business cards and it easily contained all the leaflets and some of the goodies given to me at Britmums. I recently used this bag when I went to Christmas in July event’s and a Tefal Inovations Panel meeting and it was perfect for all the leaflets we were given.
This would make a perfect work bag or even a school bag as you can easily add note/work books and it will even hold a ring binder.
With a price tag of only £28 it is a fantastic option especially if you wanted something a little different than everyone else has – you can even have a few different designs at that price!
|Owl flap large purse|
The matching purse is very cute too and holds loads too, with 10 credit card slots, a photo slot, zipped coin section, 2 inner compartments and a note flap. This purse is the perfect size to fit inside the front pocket of the bag.
Size: H 10 x L 19 x W 3 cms
This is priced at only £8 and is made from a matching oilcloth.
