Last week I got some big news. This little known Social Media Specialist, fashion and Disney Blogger got a job working for the website of a major network in NYC. Being the fashion obsessed girl that I am, my first thought was, “how can I commute in comfort and style?” Right now, I go to and from work with two-three bags depending on the day. Since, I will be traveling by bus and/or train that simply won’t do. While browsing the Vera Bradley website and with a little advice from Mom I found my solution, The Baby Bag.
I know what you’re thinking, but let me let Vera describe this bag to you, “Our latest Baby Bag has a total of 11 pockets inside and out, including a full zippered back, and holds everything from bottles to extra clothes. We’ve added a special clip for disappearing pacifiers and lined the interior for easy cleaning. Also includes a 26″ x 14″ terry-covered changing pad with coordinating trim.” Where a Mom sees 11 pockets and a zipper back for bottles, pacifiers, and toys; I see a place for my cell phone, iPod, Kindle, pens, and a travel mug/ water bottle. Enough room for extra baby clothes and diapers works perfectly for gym clothes and a notebook. It’s also lined so I can carry my lunch without worrying that it will ruin my expensive bag. Not to mention you can wash it.
Oh and there’s that changing pad for dirty diapers. Since the bag costs around $100 I wanted to make sure I was getting my money’s worth. I have come up with 3 alternative uses for the changing pad.
- Keep it in the bag as an extra piece of lining or a divider between your lunch and other important items.
- If you eat at your desk and you’re a little messy like me, use it as a place mat.
- I currently use mine as a bath mat. It’s a decent size and absorbent. When you aren’t using it throw it over the side of the tub and hide it with a shower curtain. It’s completely washable as well.
Sometimes we working girls need to be a little resourceful to be both successful and fabulous.
