Since becoming a mummy I seem to fill my everyday handbag with endless amounts of nappies, dummies, wipes and rusks. My bag has quickly become ‘mummified’. Recently, I received an absolutely gorgeous bag from my favourite friends at Bag Trader and the second it arrived I made a mental promise that this saucy number was going to become my ‘weekend’ bag free of bibs and baby things and lots of room for all the essentials: lip gloss, bobby pins, hair ties, drink bottle and sunglasses. Most importantly it would be a bag just for me!
Determined to enjoy the freedom of having my own bag back to myself, I loaded up the back of the car with all of Miss One’s essentials and did what anyone would do with a fancy new bag… I strutted! Yes that’s right I strutted. I felt hip, I felt cool! Mumma had a new bag and she was not afraid to show it. We went to lunch, we went to coffee and we even enjoyed a sneaky wine. My new bag and I were quickly on the path to becoming besties. It felt amazing to be a grown up and have a bag just for me, one that was not filled with used snot rags and with random sultanas floating around.
The Cross Body Leather Bag or as I was calling it ‘my grown up bag’ is made of the most delicious leather that smells amazing and the quality is just beautiful. As I opened my bag and quickly filled it with all ‘must haves’ I relished in the amount of room the bag offers without it being big and bulky. It’s a perfect weekend bag and far nicer to carry than my usual bulky heavily supplied bag I use during the week.
One of the beautiful things I’ve learnt about Bag Trader is they never fail to deliver on two things: quality and style. No matter what bag you choose they are all unique with classic and timeless designs that don’t date and seem to work with your wardrobe no matter what your style. The Cross Body Leather Bag looks beautiful with jeans or dressed up with a maxi for dinner.
So after a weekend of enjoying my ‘grown up bag’ and feeling foot loose and fancy free I thought it was time to share the love, I’ve teamed up with the sensational Jillian, owner of Bag Trader and we want to give one of you a bag make over.
