Pink Lining Yummy Mummy Bag Review

I have always loved bags and when I became a mummy my love of handbags extended to a love of changing bags because of course, what parent could live without a changing bag?? I mean we have to take out everything bar the kitchen sink don't we.

I have always lusted after the lovely Pink Lining changing bags so when I was asked to review one from their ever growing range, I jumped at the opportunity.

I didn't actually know which bag I would be reviewing so when a Pink Lining package arrived I was like a kid at Christmas.

So what was in the box…..

It was their most popular changing bag, the Yummy Mummy bag in the new Bumble Bees and Stardust print.

I have to say it is more gorgeous in real life than it is in the photos on the internet!! With an exterior made out of 100% cotton with an EVA coating, it is both stylish and remains practical because it is easy to wipe clean.

I love the print, with bees, stars and flowers in multiple colours dotted all over, it is fun and unique, I am a huge fan of stars so the design really appealed to me. The iconic cupcake and yummy mummy writing are placed front and centre on the external front pocket which simply poppers shut.

There are also two more pockets situated externally on either side of the bag, making them easily accessible. These pockets are made out of canvas and each have a PU bow placed in them, Pink Lining really do have an eye for the smallest of details. 

The canvas handles are nice and soft and can be made into one with the leather strap in the centre of them.

There are two zips which open and closing the bag easy to do. Inside there are lots of goodies to be found : a changing mat, a wet bag and a detachable mirror.

I love that the accessories for the changing bag have the same cupcake on them as on the outside of the bag. The changing mat is nice and padded and again easily wiped clean. The detachable mirror has come in handy when needing to distract Layla as I have been changing her nappy. The wet bag as been great for holding dirt nappies/ wet clothes and means the rest of the bag remains clean and dry!!

The bag itself is quite deceiving. From the outside it doesn't look like there would be much space inside, you would be wrong to think this.  Lined with the signature bright pink lining, there are 2 insulated pockets, perfect for keeping bottles or pots of food warm. There are 2 large elasticated pockets, ideal for keeping nappies and wipes in, pocket for your phone, a key fob, no need to rummage around for hours trying to find those door keys. They have even put a pen holder in there, someone always needs a pen.

The lining inside is water resistant so no need to panic if a bottle or cup happens to leak. You can see from the picture above that because of all the added pockets, there is plenty of space left in the centre for all those other essentials that you will no doubt need to take out with you.

If that wasn't enough for you, Pink Lining even provide you with a detachable  canvas shoulder strap which matches the handles alreadt attached. This is perfect if you prefer to carry your bag across your body rather than on your arm but it also makes it possible for you to hang the bag on your pushchair too. It is simple to make longer and shorter and it has quite a range making it ideal for anyone however tall you are.

Overall I absolutely love this bag, it surpassed my expectations!! Priced at £79.00 it is great to look at as well as doing a great job of holding all those much needed baby/mummy essentials. And with 11 designs currently on their site to choose from, there is definitely one for everybody. I wouldn't hesistate in recomending this to friends and family.
