The perfect bag for working mamas - What Katy Said

The perfect bag for working mamas

I have two jobs; being a mum to my three trouble-makers and being a blogger.

As I type this, Wills is asleep next to me and the girls are in their ballet class – prepping for their show in a few weeks time.

Every Tuesday I use this time to catch up with emails, write first drafts of posts, and do general admin for my business. It is precious time and I catch it when I can. If you work from home then you’ll totally understand!

I had been on the look-out for the perfect bag, one that would keep my laptop safe and have space for all of the ‘stuff’ that comes with having kids.

Baby wipes, hair bobbles, toy cars, raisins, crumbs….. I don’t think I need to go on.

The Idaho Jones Gallivant Nappy Bag does just this!

First of all, how gorgeous is the gold zip detail? It is so stylish, not what you’d expect from a changing bag, is it?

It has so many different pockets, with space for wipes, nappies, an insulated bottle pouch and enough zippy compartments for all of your own bits and bobs.

The thing that sold it to me though, is the fact that it has a dedicated space for my MacBook. I have the 13″ MacBook Pro and it fits perfectly. Plus, the pouch is padded, meaning it is protected from any bumps.

It also comes with buggy clips, which is the main way I use it at the moment. So useful to be able to have everything right in front of you as you wander around the shops. But of course, on the days I travel into London I will use it as a stylish rucksack, filling it with pretty notebooks, stationery and all of my cameras!

So whether I am shopping in town, travelling for work, or multitasking with both at the same time, the Idaho Jones Gallivant is definitely the answer!

As a bonus from me to you, if you use the code whatkatysaid at the checkout you will get 15% off your order! Go go go!

Are you a work at home mama too? How do you strike that balance?

I was sent the bag in return for my honest opinion. As always I only feature products I love and want to recommend to you.
