Vanchi Review

Since becoming a parent I have noticed a huge change in what any disposable income is spent on.  No longer are shopping sprees all about me and my ebay watch list is full of toys and clothes suitable only for little boys.  Sometimes it is lovely to have a nice treat, something for me to enjoy and changing bags have been my guilty pleasure recently.

They may not be just for me, but I tend to use a changing bag as a handbag as well so I think of it as mine.  I have recently been testing a gorgeous Vanchi bag and I really feel like I want to show it off.   

It may not look much like a changing bag but it is full of pockets to keep everything handy and comes complete with an insulated bottle holder, a snack pot holder, wet bag and changing mat.  The bag is gorgeous black leather, waterproof and so much roomier than it looks.  I can easily fit in everything I need for Dylan and myself and still have plenty of space.

In fact, when I went to the MAD blog awards recently, I took everything I needed for the evening in there! Shoes, dress, make up, book and hoody for the train home, evening bag and of course all my normal handbag items.

This is my bag today, with all Dylan's bits, all my handbag bits and my hospital notes folder ready for  our scan in - plenty of space and it still doesn't look big!

I love having a beautiful bag on my arm rather than a bag that looks like it is designed for nappies and it makes it easier to use for other things. The bag comes with carry handles perfect for wearing on your shoulder and which also fit across the handles on my Cosatto Super lite.  It also has a long strap so it can be worn across body or across a wider pushchair - great for when I haam pushing a double next year! 

The only negative I have about the bag are that it is quite heavy, even without anything in although this is of course down to the quality and sturdy materials it is made with.  It doesn't fit underneath the pushchair as well as some smaller bags too but this isn't a problem as I am quite happy wearing it and showing off my gorgeous changing bag.

All in all I am very impressed and loving having my but of luxury.  I would recommend Vanchi bags as us mothers need to treat ourselves, and there is no reason to stop using when nappies are no longer needed!
