Being a mom means you no longer have the time to take care of yourself the way you use to. Doing my hair, makeup and getting out the door in a clean outfit is now last on the list and most days I am lucky to have had time to shower. The role of a stay at home mom has really put a cramp in my style, one that I use to be very proud of. That is why I was ecstatic to have discovered a company that offers stylish products for mom and baby, ones that don’t compromise you being a trendy mom. I had the pleasure of reviewing the gorgeous Pink Camellia Tote Bag from Balboa Baby. Upon first glance, this elegant tote does not appear to be a baby bag at all. I would personally use this even if I didn’t have dozens of baby items to tote around with me when I left the house. The quilted fabric gives it such a unique and high quality look, something I adore about the bag. The tote also contains an insert at the bottom, which gives it structure and support. You don’t have to worry about all of your baby items and supplies tipping the bag over, as the bottom makes it stand upright perfectly. There are also two inside pockets available for those items you don’t want lost in the bag, such as spare change, wallet and chapstick.
The two outside pockets are easily accessible and ideal for items such as your cell phone and keys. I really like the zipper closure on top, most baby bags just snap shut, which increases the risk of items accidentally falling out. The reinforced straps make it a comfortable tote to carry on your shoulder. This tote is also washable and that is probably the most important feature in my opinion. It is inevitable and unavoidable… at one point or another your baby bag is going to need a good wash! Being able to easily toss this tote in the wash, without the worry of it getting destroyed in the process, is just fantastic. I could just go on and on about how stylish and functional this bag is, I am truly impressed with this one! The color options are great and Balbo Baby even offers this bag as a duffle or messenger bag.
