Babymel Grace Review - WIN A Stunning Nappy Bag Plus an Exclusive Discount Offer! #SLHFeaturedThursdays


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!

  9. My partner bought our nappy bag and it's bloky blue with a plastic liner and no pockets... well it has pockets but only because the liner tore. Dad deserves to look stylish when he takes his daughter out to lunch!! He would feel so special with this one... AND he would be able to find what he needed unlike his bloky version.

  14. The biggest barrier to finding the right baby bag is wanting to avoid the typical 'daggy baggy' mummy look. Being water resistant is a huge drawcard especially proven from previous experience - children and their belongings are definitely not spill-proof! There are so many more features that appeal to me.....my list would go on forever!!!!!
    In summary this is the perfect bag for me!

  19. Oh I love this bag - I love that is doesn't look like a nappy bag at all (plus any zippers on the outside is a outright win for any mum!)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just love it. I would use this as my everyday bag and I could do with a new classy, stylish bag. The beach bag I bought on my honeymoon and the six year old nappy bag I own are getting a bit daggy!

  22. I would LOVE to have a bag that I could take to work as well as cram all the baby essentials into! This would definitely fit the bill and looks nothing like a "baby bag".

  29. Eva Lewis - I would like to win the Babymel Grace Nappy Bag because it seems that 4 years ago when I had my son, I had absolutely no sense of style (or idea) when it came to nappy bags. I bought this stiff round thing that is so impractical and DEFINITELY doesn’t look like a handbag. Being 15 weeks pregnant with my second, there’s not many things on my list to buy but most certainly one of them IS a nappy bag. It has to be stylish, roomy and not look like a nappy bag.. and the Babymel Grace fits my criteria perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wendy Sutcliffe- I'd love to win this, I was never a "bag" person but the last few years I have started lusting after gorgeous bags! I love bags with pockets and lots of room for all my junk! I don't drive so I always have to carry lots of "Just in case" stuff! (I love that they have a "Wendy" bag!!, if I'm not lucky enough to win Grace, I might need to buy Wendy!)

  31. This would be perfect for me and my baby! Kathryn Londrigan

  32. I know this is supposed to be a bag for baby stuff but this looks nothing like my baby bags I've used...this is one I'd keep especially for ME!

  33. What a stunning bag. I'd downsize my current Mary Poppins Tote to this bag for sure. I don't need to carry as many baby things now that Phoebe is 18 months old.

  34. Love the babymel bag I haven't got a nappy bag or anything and Bub is due in 3 weeks

  36. Such a gorgeous bag and big enough to carry everything baby related!!

  37. Sarah Ellwood -
    Such a cute bag, with some really cool features. My favourite being the insulated bottle pocket, which is handy when we have to be out of the house most of the day. I also like the luxury padded changing may and the fact the bags water resistant, which makes for easy cleaning, which makes for a happy mum.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been 8 years out of the baby game - and therefore 8 years out of knowing about nappy bags! I have NO idea what I need, but it seems you do, so I'd love to put my hat in the ring to win the Babymel Nappy Bag. If I could choose any, I'd go with the Big Slouchy but hey, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth and I would also be perfectly happy with the Grace!!! OMG! That one would go so nice with the leather on my pram! EEEK

  39. With neck problems I've been searching for the perfect bag to distribute the combined weight of toddler snacks and newborn bottles, so the Harlow backpack has won my heart. What an amazing idea!

  61. Belinda Moxey - I love how this bag is stylish enough to use as a baby bag or a handbag with no obvious signs of being a baby bag if I use it when I'm out without the children. I especially love how everything has its own little section keeping the bag neat and tidy at all times and in situations where you cant look inside the bag, you still know where to find the important stuff in a hurry.
