Once you have kids there is a lot that you have to change.
Changing up the way you spend your time (endless cartoons, questions, diaper changes, hugs, and cuddles) and the things you spend your money on (formula, Target kids' clearance, rash cream, toys, sippy cups) don't seem like big sacrifices because we LOVE to love on our littles.
But there is one thing that being a mama has made me miss... And I miss it a lot. I miss having a bag that is just. for. me. You know, that perfectly organized and stylish bag that has your lip gloss, wallet, maybe some hand cream, all within easy reach and all wrapped in a gorgeous bag that you love carrying around? Well now that you're constantly carrying around your babe, it can seem like a lifetime ago that you got to have a good-looking bag that wasn't dedicated to keeping your kids essentials instead of yours. Well thankfully, The Freshly Picked Diaper Bag showed up to make all of my dreams come true. The fact that this bag looks incredible should be reason enough to want to run out and get it immediately. I am all heart eyes for a sleek leather look with gold accents. Gimme.
But the fact that you can transition this bag from a diaper bag to a carry-all for work to a cute tote-style purse when you're headed out with your man on a date is just too much for my mama heart to handle. It's the perfect bag that makes it possible to not have separate bags. No more one for YOU and one for THEM--now you have the perfect accessory for everyone! The diaper bag from Freshly Picked was designed with mamas who want more than just a utility-style pack on their back. We want something that we're not trying to hide under the table at the restaurant (probably because it is covered in an unknown substance and we would rather not get the stares when we place it on the table). It's gorgeous, easy to clean, and always keeps its shape for a put-together look even when you're feeling like a complete mess. That right there is a #mamawin! Not to mention you can fit it ALL in this bag. It's great for when your babes are small and you need to carry around 1000 diapers, wipe refills and bottles for any outing. It's great for when you have toddlers and you're stuffing a change of clothes for those inevitable accidents and the must-have toys. It's also great when you are done carrying around your babe's things and it's all up to you to stuff it full of goodies (please let me know how it feels to be in this stage of life, because I cannot wait!).
