Mrs. Smith's Bags Review and Giveaway



This is a bag every mom needs. When I say "every mom" I mean that. I was beyond excited for the opportunity to review one of Mrs. Smith's Bags. I'm sure I'll still be using this bag years from now when I drop Lucy off at her first day of school!

You might be wondering why this bag is special. There are a couple of features that make it so fantastic. The first is its organization. As a mommy I learned very early on that's its important to have things like pacifiers, cups, toys, yogurt puffs, and diapers on hand any time you're out in public. Most bags have a few little tiny compartments and a couple big ones so things get tossed in and are difficult to find. The last thing you want in a crowded mall is to have to dig around for five minutes for any of those necessity items.



Rachel Smith designed these bags after a frustrating airport experience traveling with her two small children. I hope you will all take the time to read how these bags came about. Its a story moms everywhere can relate to. She wanted a bag that allowed her to carry everything she needed but be organized at the same time. Her diaper bags offer a drawer, which I've found to be great for toting lunches in, and a top bag area that's great for diapers, clothes and mommy items!



Besides being super organized and able to pack every single thing you'd need when taking your child out, this bag can function as a messenger bag or a backpack! Making the switch is very simple and can be done in less than a minute. I love that this can be a cute backpack because carrying around a toddler puts enough strain on me. Wearing it like this evens out the weight that I support and doesn't feel heavy or bulky.




This is one of my favorites, and the bag I got to review: Pink Polka Dots!


I really wish I would have known about these bags when Lucy was first born. Just in the short time that I've had mine I've already grown extremely attached. No more carrying around a purse stuffed with diapers, a toy bag, a cup that gets thrown in the floor, and a lunch box. It all goes in Mrs. Smith's Bag!

I like the copper bag. Very cool bag. The drawer thing is awesome. hentschelsg@hotmail.com

Shanda said...

Oh wow, what is my favorite baby product.....hmm there are so many. I guess I would have to say my favorite and most useful item would be PhysiObebe No rinse cleansing fluid by Mustela. Its great for wiping their little bottoms down after a long night in a wet diaper. Plus its gentle enough for their faces.

Okay this is so love at first site! I have the biggest diaper bag ever and NOTHING is organized EVER! I have crumbs at the bottom and diapers spilling out everywhere.

Like everything I own I love the black one, but the brown with polka dots is also very cute!

Email:algo0117@yahoo.com

butterfly11780 said...

The most useful product would have to be my mat for restaurants, it suctions to the table, has a little catcher for the fallen food, and cleans easily! This way I can just leave the mess in the mat instead of worrying if my 15 month old will decide to throw her plate on the floor! I recommend it to all!

our most useful baby products would have to be the Cradle N Swing for her first 7-8 months... and from 6-10 months - the Jumparoo! the swing was a lifesaver when she was younger for getting her to sleep so I could get things done around the house, and now that she's more active we stick her in the Jumparoo if we need to get something done without her being underfoot - she LOVES it and bounces in it like crazy! :)
