*I received a complimentary diaper bag for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*
Pink Lining is a company that makes amazing diaper bags, and accessories. It was started in a basement flat in Bayswater by hand-stitching handbags for friends and colleagues. Within 6 months they were being stocked in Harrods and featured in Vogue, they are now a market leader in the UK. Their changing bags are very fashionable and well made with the needs of mother and baby in mind.
When I was pregnant with Little Miss I received a very nice diaper bag that I loved and was proud to carry everywhere! Unfortunately when I had Baby C I was not as lucky, so I went and picked up a cheap diaper bag that did the job but was not fashionable at all, it has spent most of the time in the back of my car or shoved in the bottom of a stroller, only pulling it out if I really needed it. Most of the time I would put the necessities in my purse so I didn't have to carry the diaper bag I had. I just couldn't get myself to spend the money on a different diaper bag when the one I had worked just fine. I'm the type of person that hates to spend money on myself, I have horrible buyers remorse and prefer to spend money buying the kids or my husband something they want or need. So when Pink Lining offered to send me one of their bags to review I'm sure you can imagine how excited I was!

They have so many cute bags in a variety of styles and prints, I must have starred at the website for over an hour trying to decide which one to choose because I loved them all. I finally decided on the Yummy Mummy Changing Bag with Navy Bows, and I have to say it was a fantastic pick!
I was so excited to have a stylish and functional diaper bag I couldn't wait to pack all of my stuff in! I was very surprised at how much room the bag has. It has enough room for all of Baby C's things and my stuff as well, including my wallet, sunglasses, a water bottle, and more! This bag will eliminate me having to carry a diaper bag and a purse since everything fits in one, and it is so adorable I love carrying it everywhere! It has a beautiful water resistant nylon lining in shocking pink, 2 insulated bottle holders which are some of the best I have seen, 2 large diaper pockets, pen holder, key fob, small zip pocket, and a cell phone pocket. The outside fabric is 100% cotton canvas laminated with EVA coating, I love the way it feels it has kind of a smooth waxy texture to it and wipes clean very easily.
I was very impressed with the padded changing mat that came with it, when they say padded they sure do mean it! It's way nicer then the ones my past diaper bags came with. The Yummy Mummy also includes a detachable mirror and a wet zip bag with little cupcakes on it
On the front of the bag there is a small pocket with a cute little cupcake embroidered on it and the slogan yummy mummy on the flap, I like to keep my lip-gloss and hand sanitizer in here so it's easily accessible. Each side has an elasticated pocket with a little bow I love all of the cute little detail Pink Lining puts on their bags, these pockets are perfect for holding a bottle of water, snacks or anything else you want to keep easily accessible.
The canvas handles are soft and comfortable; they can be made in to one with the leather strap that snaps them together. It also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap that is equally as comfortable and can fit over any stroller handlebars.
I would recommend Pink Lining diaper bags for anyone who is expecting or has small children. This would also make a great gift for an expecting mother!
