Before Punk was born I had this glorified vision of parenthood. I felt that in order to be a the best parent I had to have the best of everything. I mean how silly would it be to bring a baby into this world and not have the top of the line bottles? hmmm, silly right? So I made sure I had the best...
...you name it...I (still) have it..
And you know what I have found out. What I thought was best for Punk turned out to not be the most practical. The best clothes seemed to stiff, the best crib sheets turned out to be from Target, and the best nursing pillow was soon replaced with whatever pillow I could find in the middle of the night.
While many of "best" baby products have been replaced the one thing that hasn't changed is my diaper bag. I love my diaper bag. When Punk was born...which happened 10 weeks early, we were not prepared. No stroller, no carseat, no clothes, no baby shower, no prenatal classes--nothing. In order to gain some sort of control during this scary situation I went out and bought the diaper bag....because, hey, I was a MOM even though I didn't get to take my baby home for three months. I used my bag to carry new clothes to the hospital, transfer breast milk, and stow away a few hospital diapers every now and then....
My diaper bag has become an integral part of my daily wardrobe. It has turned into my camera bag, purse, refrigerator, and safe haven for Punk's favorite toys.
So when ShicShoppe approached me about reviewing a bag I knew it was time to retire my trusty companion for something more hip (and less dirty).
I LOVE my new bag. Isn't it so bold and colorful?
This bag can hold everything. I'm tellin' ya folks, I have a lot of stuff to carry around and this baby holds it all.
Want to know what I fit into this bag? Well I'll tell ya.
wallet. dayplanner. diapers. wipee case. Punk's shoes. bottle. book. lotion. four lip glosses. phone. ipod. hydrocortizone cream. gum. goat (toy). bottle. camera. yogurt snacks. fruit jerky. glasses. keys. Punk's phone.
One of the best features of this purse is the straps. When I pulled it out of the package I couldn't believe how it's large size could fit into such a small box. Because the arm straps can be tied together it makes the bag easy to fold and pack into small spaces.
Ladies, I am talkin' to you! This purse would be perfect for vacations because you could shove it into the corner of your luggage and you would then have an extra bag for your trip!
So how would you like to win a $15 dollars worth of store credit to ShicShoppe?
