{Mommy's Little Miracle} Pink Lining Diaper Bags


*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary diaper bag for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

Today Mommy's Little Miracle is featuring a diaper bag company that is so adorable and practical, you'll want to grab one of each style - Pink Lining!

If you've been a reader of Mommy's Obsessions for a while, you may have noticed that I am quite the diaper bag (well really, any bag) hoarder. I just LOVE bags. Shortly after having Little Mister diaper bags became an obsession hobby of mine and I would buy and sell diaper bags like it was going out of style. One diaper bag brand that I became familiar with last year was Pink Lining and I immediately fell in love with their prints!

Are you expecting in 2014? Did you just have your little bundle of joy? Know someone who's pregnant or trying to conceive? Then this event is for you! Alex of Mommy's Obsessions is expecting her second son this October and has created an event that is perfect for expectant mothers! Mommy's Little Miracle is a Pregnancy, Newborn/Early Infancy, and Postpartum event that will be featuring everything from maternity clothing to newborn essentials, to postpartum products you must have! We highly recommend that you bookmark the open giveaway page by clicking on the image below then adding it to your bookmarks bar! Over the next three weeks you will have the chance to enter to win some amazing prizes from items for YOU and things for your little one!



About Pink Lining
(As from their website) 

"From hand-stitching handbags for friends and colleagues in our basement flat in Bayswater (until my mother lent me her sewing machine which neither she, nor i had any idea how to use), then taking snapshots of them on the aforementioned flat’s front door and writing my own press release; to being stocked in Harrods and featured in Vogue and Tatler, all within 6months, (including 1 overnight stay at Heathrow airport lounge when I missed the plane to find our manufacturers which my husband Rufus Pearl- co-founder of Pink Lining luckily made, along with the original and only, 7 hand-stitched Pink Lining samples!) From hand tagging bags with willing friends, (paid in wine or champagne for larger orders), in-between breast-feeding my first daughter and sidling past more and more boxes of bags for stores in London, Paris , New York and Japan. Still from our 1 bedroom basement flat. To our first Pink Lining office off Portobello Road in Notting Hill, complete with new Pink Lining team members , and Molly the dog. Along the way stopping at the Cheltenham Gold cup (for a successful limited edition collaboration with Thomas Pink). From purely fashion bags and fashion weeks... to an exciting and challenging digression into the Mother and child market- injecting the same fashion and design detail but this time into changing bags for Mothers; a change of direction validated when subsequently Pink Lining was selected to be stocked in prestigious John Lewis stores nationwide and then Harrods, and Fenwicks, and House of Fraser, and Bentalls… amongst others…and internationally…To becoming a market leader in the UK.
From the idyllic, (but now too small), office on a flower dotted, cobbled mews off Portobello Road; Rufus and I and our growing family, (now 3 children and Delilah the dog), and rapidly expanding Pink Lining office team and ever growing product range, (a direct result of my aforementioned growing family’s needs), relocate to our current exciting new premises in the Phoenix Brewery (not as bad for one’s health as one might suspect!) in Notting Hill. From establishing ourselves in new territories as far flung as Australia, Riyadh (Harvey Nicols), and Germany (Baby one), to name but a few, to launching PL Child, UK nationwide in Mamas & Papas and being honored to welcome Nicola Horlick as non-executive chairman and Paul Spinks (ex-CEO Cath Kidston) to the Pink Lining family."

When my Pink Lining Bramley Tote diaper bag arrived I was so excited! I had fallen in love with the adorable flamingo print, appropriately called "Flamingo Walk", and wouldn't wait to see it in person! I was extremely excited to see that the outer fabric of the bag had a wipeable glaze over it which is perfect for cleaning up mild spills or dirt that may get on your bag! The Bramley Tote is extremely spacious; it measures 40cm X 31cm X 15cm and is perfect for packing up everything you will need for a day out with your baby or toddler! 


The Bramley Tote features two convenient outside pockets - a large one which is perfect for storing the changing pad in, and a smaller one which I use for my phone, chapstick, and keys! The "mommy pocket" as I call it is discrete and easy to get in and out of without taking the bag off of your shoulder, so if you need to grab something quickly (like your car keys) you will have no problem doing so!


The Bramley Tote features two fabric straps that make carrying the bag easy and comfortable, and they are even removable for easy cleaning! The straps are extremely easy to remove, simply squeeze the clamp together and it opens up, making it simple to remove from the rings on the bag.


As mentioned before, this bag is extremely spacious! Not only does it have a very roomy inside, but it has several pockets to organize yours and your little ones belongings and help you keep your sanity while you're searching for the item you need! Inside the bag includes a zippered pocket, two spacious pockets, an additional pocket inside of one of the two pockets, velcro hold bottle pouch holder, key fob, and pen holder!


One feature of the Bramley Tote that I really appreciate is that the top of the bag fully zips up, giving you piece of mind if you need to bend over to pick something up while holding the bag, or if you are carrying it along with 50 thousands other things like so many of us moms do! I love that (while your bag may get a little unorganized), if it happens to fall/tip over, you won't lose any of your diaper bag's contents thanks to the zipper!


Another feature of the Bramley Tote that I feel is so important is the added rings to make this bag easy to hang from your stroller. As a parent, having the convenience of hanging my diaper bag from the stroller while on the go is a HUGE factor in whether or not I will purchase the diaper bag and the fact that the Bramley Tote has the stroller rings is a huge plus in my book!


In addition to this bag already being fabulous, it comes with a few added goodies to make your bag just a little more fun! Pink Lining took care of mommy's needs and included a clear cupcake wet bag, a mirror that attaches to the key fob inside of the bag, and an insulated bottle holder that attaches to the bag as well! Thanks to these extra items, everything in your bag will have a designated place!


The last goodie that Pink Lining includes in their Bramley Tote is their padded Pink Lining Changing Pad. This changing pad is my favorite addition to the bag - it is very padded and comfortable for baby to lay on as you change them. It has a plastic coating so you can wipe it clean if any messes occur and fold it back up and place it in the outside pocket of the bag!


I have fallen in love with the Bramley Tote from Pink Lining and have packed it up to use at the hospital with Little Boy! I recommend checking out their collection of diaper bags and seeing which style of bag will work for you and your family!
