As you may recall from my previous Pink Lining review, I am a HUGE fan of their gorgeous bags so when the very lovely people at Pink Lining HQ recently gave the opportunity to review one of their Mini Bags - I may have squealed a little!
The Mini Yummy Mummy Bags come in four beautiful styles at present...Flamingo, Pink Bicycle, Wise Owl and Woodland... I was momentarily torn between Woodland's beautiful green design with it's cute little deer prints but I quickly decided it had to be the owls!
With my choice made, I waited anxiously for its arrival...keen to see if this Mini version could equal it's full-size counterpart in the style and substance stakes!
My bag arrived a few days ago, and I was not disappointed!
The bag is 27 cm long by 18 cm high, which sounded quite small when reading the dimensions on the website...but once it arrived it was clear that actually, this size is ideal once you get past the baby stage!
I can't be the only one out there who finds a full size changing bag just TOO BIG once baby has reached a certain age?!
Sure, when Tyne was a few months old we needed to take numerous bottles, nappies, a change of clothes, snacks, and all kinds of essentials out with us on every journey - and sure, if we're going out for a long day we still may need to take extra things so a changing bag is always handy.
But it feels that now he is 1, it is no longer necessary to carry around so much stuff - most of the time we are only nipping out for a few hours, and so all we need is 1 bottle and maybe a snack, a nappy or two and some wipes.
The Mini Yummy Mummy Wise Owl bag is IDEAL for this!
There is plenty of room inside for all of those things, plus it still has the Pink Lining change mat inside and there is still room left for a few other essentials too and a zip section inside for loose change, etc.
There is also a back pocket perfect for keeping separate any wet bibs, etc...and a front pocket which is the perfect size for holding my phone and keys (It secures with a zip, so I needn't worry about losing them!)
The bag also comes with a detachable shoulder strap, which is perfect for hanging over prams if you prefer not to use as a clutch-style.
And - as we have all come to expect from Pink Lining - the design and material are of very high quality!
I absolutely adore the stylish, on-trend Owl design and the grey colour is just perfect as it will match any outfit!
Personally, I am so glad to have a nice compact change bag to take out with me now instead of carrying around excess baggage - I adore the Mini Yummy Mummy!
