BAGS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR BABIES

(Note: I know you’ll probably go straight to the pics/ prouducts and I know I have wittered on a bit but do read my ramblings so you can see why I’ve chosen the bags I have!)

 I have seen many changing bag monstrosities. For some reason perfectly stylish people can fall at this hurdle. Yes, I do accept that once you have a baby who needs a zillion changes of clothes a day and sicky muslins, wet wipes and breadsticks become a permanent fixture Continue reading
