Searching for the holy grail - handbag / mummy stuff bag
Help please... I am a sahm to 3 young dc (7,3,1). My lovely DM has offered to buy me a new handbag for my recent birthday. I need something capacious to hold snacks, cups, nappies, toys, wipes etc as well as my lippy, phone, diary, letters etc. so something with some dividers/pockets to prevent my constant stress of digging stuff out of the bottom. I like colours and want to feel good and not mumsy. I find large carrying handles you can use over your shoulder good too and I have to hang it securely over the Maclaren a lot.
Not too much to ask surely? Any ideas? Thanks a lot
My lovely DP got me a Modalu Pippa for my birthday the other week. I have no kids, but there are three massive compartments which would be brilliant for keeping kid supplies separate from mum essentials. Pricey, but nicey
I have a Pippa and love all the pockets, etc - but personally I don't like all the bright 'gold' metal work - OTT for my taste and detracts from the classy image. But if you are OK with that it's a really useful bag.
They do a larger range in their store in Greenwich, I have one and absolutely love it - it's big enough for nappies and general kid junk but not so big you can't find anything. And it wipes clean. What's not to love!
