Izebella is growing so fast. She is now 17 months old and although no longer a small baby, I still need to take a fair few things with me when going out somewhere. She still needs nappies, wipes, creams plus her cup. Then there's my purse, phone, keys and things I need.
I needed something that was both practical with enough storage space and a big carry handle and also something that was stylish and looked good. A bag such as this can be hard to find. It's impossible to put baby stuff into a small handbag and a lot if changing bags don't offer enough space or pockets for mummy things. When the opportunity arose to review a bag from Rosebud London, I of course jumped at the chance.
Rosebud London is the sister company of Pink Lining. The brand is developed by Charlotte Pearl and created in response to the need for a stylish yet competitively priced bag for mothers that ticks all the boxes.
I was sent the rosebud messenger love bloom bag which retails at £40. The bag arrived beautifully presented and wrapped in pink lining. A pink ribbon was wrapped around the package giving it that extra special touch.
The bags design is both eye catching and beautiful. The Love Bloom design features retro flowers in burgundy and soft pink. Each flower contains a little mini heart and feature soft green leaves. The style suits the modern day mother and goes very well with my red pushchair.
The bag has so much space inside it. It comes with 2 x external elasticated pockets, 2 x internal elasticised nappy pockets, 2 x insulated bottle pockets, 1 x internal zip pocket for valuables. It has an adjustable shoulder/buggy strap (22 inches shortest & 41 inches longest), The bag also comes with a key/pen fob and pen loop. There is a lightweight changing mat in the bag too.
I love the addition of the zipped pocket. This is so handy for keeping my valuable mobile phone in. The key fobs are especially useful for clipping keys too rather than rooting through a bag in the rain trying to find my keys. A changing mat always comes in handy no matter how small. After all not all of my friends or family have babies and I can't expect them to be happy changing poop on their clean carpets. This bag has so much space including the main body and the addition of the outside pocket which I find useful for nappies.
The bags fabric easily wipes clean with a damp cloth. The bags dimensions are 12.5 x 26.5 x 36 (D x H x W). It's made from100% nylon. Lining: 100% nylon.
I really love this bag. I have had a few changing bags in the past with having 3 children but this is by far the best one. It is very practical in terms of how much space it has and how much fits inside. Plus the addition of all the extra pockets and parts such as key and pen fobs. It's very fashionable and I love taking it out with us.
I would of loved a bag like this when Izebella was born. A bag such as this would make a great baby shower gift for the mum to be and also a lovely Mother’s Day gift for a new yummy mummy.
