Pink Lining Notting Hill Tote Bag

There was only one thing I really really really wanted when having Charlie over six years ago and that was a Pink Lining changing bag. I fell in love with the gorgeous styles and the uniqueness that changing bags didn’t have to be dull! I was lucky that my parents brought me one for my birthday a month before he was due. And from that day on my love for the brand has grown and grown, as has the amount of choice and products they now sell. I am the proud owner of no more than 5 bags and one toy storage bag so when I was offered the chance to review their new style brand new print I absolutely jumped at the chance!

I was sent the Notting Hill Cottage Garden tote bag and it got its first outing on our holiday to Bluestone.

The bag was launched last month and is a new shape and size. The dimensions are 48L, 16W and 27H. This makes the bag slightly longer and wider than a Yummy Mummy style bag. The bag itself doesn’t feel like your typical changing bag that has zillions of compartments (usually to lose all my stuff in!). It has thin leather straps that make it a perfect chic handbag that doubles as a change bag. It comes with the instantly recognisable hot pink interior lining, a change mat and wet bag and internally there’s a mirror, two removable insulated bottle holders, two nappy pocket and a zip pocket.

Pink Lining – obvs!

I would point out that the bag does not the long shoulder strap but integrated stroller straps so you can attach it onto the pushchair. This works better for me as my buggy has one long double handle so hanging long straps around it can sometimes be a no go!

The new style bag comes in this cottage garden style and is also available in a gorgeous sunflower pattern. It is priced at £69.00 on the Pink Lining website.

Perfect for hiding my scary face!

I love how versatile the bag is; whilst with other bags are quite obviously a baby changing bag, this has the ability to be a perfect changing bag but as you and baby grow out of the need for nappies and wipes, it can then be used easily as a handbag on it’s own. It’s large enough to fit in all the stuff for my twins (two outfits, extra nappies etc) and didn’t feel full to capacity. One of the girls cups leaked inside and I easily mopped it up and it didn’t mark or stain the lining.

All in all – yet another top design and fabulous new shape and sized bag. Pink Lining – is there anything you can’t do?!

    Oh I really like that, bright, clean, not saggy looking like some, and doesn’t look like a hold-all! Really good looking bag and Catriona is right, you wouldn’t know it was a change bag.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! Love the colours and it is a great size too. I tend to just use a huge handbag these days but I run the risk of forgetting either nappies, wipes or other essentials! X
