Before my daughter was even born, I despised baby bags. I was under the impression that a baby bag would be one of the most important pre-baby purchases I would make. I spent hours researching the different types of bags and the number of zips and pockets each bag had. Eventually I decided on what I thought you be the perfect oversized and slightly less unattractive baby bag for me.

Fast forward a few months and I was in the depths of new motherhood. I went everywhere with that bag. Whether I was running down to the shops to grab some milk, or going on an overnight road trip….that bag came with me and my new little bundle of joy. But I quickly came to the realisation, the bag was so big it didn’t fit in my pram. I also quickly realised, I never used the thing. Much to my surprise, I didn’t need to change my daughter's outfit 30 times every time we left the house. Toys? HA! My daughter hated the things. 75 nappy changes? Not a chance. I was lugging this huge bag around for absolutely no reason other than the fact I was kinda told I had to by all my mum friends.

My daughter wasn’t even 3 months old and I went against everything I had ever been told about baby bags and the requirements of a newborn, and I got rid of the thing. I knew I still needed a bag big enough to carry our necessities, but I wanted something which was stylish enough to not scream “MUM”. After more endless nights of searching, I replaced my baby bag with the Spark Reversible Tote.

Running a business whilst being a mum has proven to be quite the juggling act. After returning to work just four months after having my daughter, I was always on the lookout for gadgets that simplified my life. The best thing about this bag is it has a USB cord to recharge most smartphones with a rechargeable battery which stores enough power to charger my phone twice whilst on the go. It’s stylish reversible design comes in black, which is perfect for a more professional look, and tan, which I loved for a more casual style.
Back in those early baby days I was able to throw in a change of clothes for my daughter (because a poo-explosion is almost a rite of passage in early motherhood), a muslim wrap, a nappy wallet and a small lunch box with the essentials for on the go feeding. Now days, as long as I have an endless supply for snacks, water and our nappy wallet, we are good to go.
