One of the best purchases a new mum can make, is a decent nappy bag that will stand the rigours of motherhood. Most of us are well aware that many baby change bags on the market can be priced on the steep side. Some are outright crippling in the cost department. You don't have to spend a fortune however, to find a bag that fits the purpose of the role and fulfils your own desire to look good and feel great.
It is very important to look good and feel great as a mum, even if you are totally not feeling it! A good bag can help you to at least give the impression that you're succeeding and with that, lift your spirits on those rough days we all know.
Motherhood is a hard job and you need to cart loads of incidentals on your trails. Your 'mother load' changes constantly too, and with it sometimes, your bag needs to as well. In the early days, it's all about taking the house along and a suitably sized baby bag is required. As time passes and your children grow, your baby bag becomes a friendlier-sized tote to carry all sorts of mothering and childcare items, as well as your regular handbag stash.
Wherever you are on your journey in parenthood, the newest change bag from Babymel - the gorgeous Grace, will see you carrying everything you need in style.
What I love first and foremost about this brand in general, is the quality and price. Babymel London are a UK-born line and their market is chic mamas who want to look great. (Pretty much all of us!) Their bags tell a story of fashion combined with form and function. Babymel produce bags that are remarkably friendly to use and that match happily with any and all outfits, as well as all walks of life: Plain and simple equals stunning!
Babymel's latest Grace bag is a tan beauty that firmly demonstrates this label's great points. Grace has the look and feel of quality genuine leather but with the ease of care that vegan-leather provides. (A quality PU leather.) You can wipe this one down when inevitable spills occur, wear it in the rain without consequence and all the while, enjoy its simple classic and durable design on so many occasions.
I have been giving this bag a real workout in my daily life and I outright I have to say, I love the size of this tote! It's larger than a regular sized handbag but not so over-sized that I feel like I did back in the early days with a newborn. This bag is supple and so soft and comfortable to wear. I can take it along when I have the kids and it easily fills with my needs and theirs. I can also grab it and go when I am child-free and use it as a regular handbag without the tell-tale 'I am a mummy' look.
Inside the Grace is surprisingly roomy. Everything has its allocated place within the large interior. Its built-in pockets do not gape and over-power the available space. There are two huge elasticated pockets for nappies and wipes, or for holding bottles upright. There's a matching padded Babymel change mat that comes with the bag too. The lining is a sweet and chic polka-dot beige brushed-satin. (Loving that!) This bag is so timeless and attractive to use.
The Grace is like a handbag only, with extras for mamas and her greatness lies in her details. Babymel bags come with detachable straps which are fully adjustable to suit any wearer's preferences. In addition, all Babymel bags have built in stroller straps on the handle which add security and comfort to your possessions when pushing a pram or shopping cart. There's no need for fumbling about to add bits and pieces to your bag when you're in a rush. Just adjust the Velcro tabs and you're away!
Externally I really like the zippered compartment located on the side of this bag which is a wonderful place to shove keys or other bits and pieces like receipts. I call this my 'stash pouch' and I constantly poke my bits of junk in here when I am at the shops and casting a quick-eye over my kidlets. This pocket is actually insulated within and is designed to hold a bottle upright, however, it's also fully lined in polka-dot fabric so it functions as a regular pocket too.
|Grace has an attractive arched top and a zippered closure with excellent long zipper pulls to make mum-life easier.|
There's an external pocket on the front of the bag beneath the Perspex logo nameplate which fits a mobile phone (including an iPhone 6), plus the twin grab handles make for easy carrying.
The Babymel London Grace baby change bag retails for $134.99 and is available to purchase online at Babymel Australia. For looks, style, function and price, the Grace is a wonderful bag to suit every mum and it's a personal favourite on versatility and comfort. It won't break the bank either for this price. All-up, I love the Grace!
