Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Lassig Green Label Neckline Bag Allover Fleur

Mothers Day Gift Guide
2001569
I am kind of a diaper bag snob. I need my diaper bags to be functional, practical, and this is a biggy I want my diaper bags to grow with my family. That is hard for most diaper bags to do. I want them to be stylish and able to carry a bunch of diapers, snacks, spare clothes for the kids, sippy cups, and sunscreen plus epi pens, inhalers and so much more.Plus I rather like the idea of an eco friendly durable bag. That’s not asking to much is it? And when my kids are done with the whole diaper bag stage I want to be able to still use the bag. It seems like some insurmountable feet that would require some sort of cape and flying through the sky. Well have no fear Lassig is here to save the day. Yes you guessed it the Lassig Green Label Neckline Bag Allover Fleur has everything I want in a bag and more. It has the capability to hold everything I need with some great little features that make me smile. Like a wet bag that comes with your bag to match. Pockets galore and room for all the things i need to carry around for all three of my children. Something I always test out in all my bags is how they function when being placed on the ground. If a bag can’t hold its form and stand up when placed down than that’s an issue I can’t excuse. I need my bag to stand up so everything doesn’t fall out or over every time I place my bag down. The Neckline bag holds up very well on its own, even when it’s not packed full.

Another feature that is important to me is top closure. I like to be able to close my bag shut. Not only does keeping my bag shut keep strangers from seeing my bags contents. It keeps my kids out or at the very least gives me the few seconds I need to say “back away from the bag kiddo”. Yes my children pilfer my bag while most of the time they are going for snacks or in the case of my oldest gum. Other times they are dumping everything out of the bag and if my bag is sealed they are less likely to see something of interest that could start the bag up heavel my boys are so known for. This bag has a great zipper that is very easy to use.

One of my very favorite features of this bag is its general style. This is a bag I can use as a beach bag when my kids are no longer in need of me carrying our entire house with us. Or I can use it to carry our lunches in it. It would be an amazing weekend bag too. The whole point is this bags use doesn’t end once your child is potty trained it is so stylish you will want to keep it around for years to come.

The Green Label Neckline Bag Allover Fleur promises sustainability with class. Made from CYCLEPET polyester fabric sourced from recycled plastic bottles, our precious natural resources are consciously spared. At the same time, the diaper bag with its striking shape proves that ecologically minded production also allows for fashionable and stylish bags. The slick Neckline Bag Allover Fleur is available in Black Melange or Choco Melange with applications and a strap made of finest imitation leather. On the inside, the tried and tested convenience of a changing mat, an insulated bottle holder, a water-repellent wet compartment and a detachable baby jar retainer is to be found. Naturally, the bag can also be attached directly to the stroller. But fashion-conscious mothers also like to attract attention when shopping in town by carrying the bag across their shoulder.

I have a bit of a diaper bag obsession. If I see a cute diaper bag with awesome features how can I resist. Well I have found as amazing bag that is so gorgeous I will be using it even when I don’t need a diaper bag. The Babymel Amanda bag is a super cute slouch bag with some features that make it stand out from the others. What features you ask? Well let me tell you first my favorite it comes with built in stroller straps. You heard me built in that means no more throwing your diaper bag over the handle bar of the stroller only to have it dragging on the ground within minutes, no more trying to dig out your diaper bag from the basket under the stroller to find your phone, and no more having to switch your stroller straps from one stroller to the other. With this diaper bag you can attach the stroller straps to just about any stroller in minutes. Next the Babymel is super easy to clean inside and out just take a wipe to this beautiful diaper bag and it is sparkly clean once again. This bag also has pockets to spare. I am big on having pockets in my diaper bags I like having things organized and easy to find the Babymel has plenty plus a ZIPPERED bottle pocket on the side, yep another super cool feature. It comes with a changing pad and a cute squishy heart tag I know it seems weird but this is another awesome feature. Both my kids like squeezing it like a stress ball and it actually keeps them occupied when we are waiting plus it’s really cute. Okay last but not least this bag is so beautiful. Just look at it I took it out today and received so many compliments. It is so pretty I just like looking at it and I mean what I said even when I know longer need a diaper bag this is one bag that will be sticking around I will still be using this one.

The Amanda is our signature Babymel style, which combines the fashionable look of a slouchy hobo with a hoard of great features!

The Amanda is equipped with:

One insulated zip bottle pocket
Three large outer pockets
Internal elasticated large storage pockets
Zipped pocket to keep valuables
Wipe clean lining
Wipe clean outer printed fabric
Adjustable strollerstrap
Changing mat
Dimensions: H 13in W 17in D 6in

The super cool strollerstraps

The strollerstrap is a new invention that allows you to switch between stroller and shoulder. Babymel has designed the strap to be both attractive and easy to use. With high quality velcro the strap seals onto the stroller which allows you to travel hands free!
Instructions for use are included with the bag

O Yikes Review and Giveaway

Result: 295 Francine


We are always on the go. Playdates, errands, things to do, O Yikes! I think O Yikes had us in mind when they made this fantastic bag I reviewed. The “Square” is way to cool. First it doesn’t look like a diaper bag which I totally love. The colors are beautiful and I adore the tweed 60’s look ( I am a hippy at heart). I also really like that it is not a “girly” bag. Sometimes I am in the mood for fillies and girly things but mostly I am not I like simplicity and utility. The O Yikes square has both. I like products that can have a second life (repurposing) which the O Yikes square has it is perfect as a diaper bag and is great as a netbook bag, it would be great for college kids or any student really. It’s stylish and practical. My favorite feature its ability to expand to make room for more is great for when we will be out all day. I can shrink it back down for other time when we are just running errands and I don’t have to carry as much with us. This bag is wonderful it has some great features that make it one of my favorite bags to use.

Here is some info about the bag I reviewed:

As the name suggest, the Square is anything but “square”. Although, the shape is definitely a square, the functionality and appeal isn’t. The nostalgic retro inspired lifestyle over the shoulder bag is perfect for active, urban living with plenty of room to carry all of your essentials. The vintage appeal of the over the shoulder bag, specifically the vintage flight travel bag was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.

The wool fabrics and colors are reminiscent of the elegance and sophistication of the early 1960’s. The size and shape of the over the shoulder bag makes it an ideal ’all around bag’. Not only is it an ideal over the shoulder bag, college school bag, baby diaper bag, but also as a fabulous netbook computer travel bag. The padded computer pocket safely protects your standard 12” laptop or netbook. The over the shoulder bag is also designed as an expandable travel bag giving you an extra 2” to carry everything from family, school, travel, and work gear. It’s a wonderful over the shoulder bag regardless of what you will carry.

Above is a look at the expansion ability

ORE Diaper Bag Review and Discount Code


I recently got the chance to review O.R.E. ’s Ultimate Diaper Bag. I am so impressed by the design and the amount of stuff I can cram into this gorgeous bag. I chose the Twiggy Print, it’s beautiful! I love how durable this bag is, you can throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty. Which is just awesome. The brag tag is adorable I have a picture of my kiddos on mine. I was able to fit TWO one size fits all pocket diapers in the changing area of the O.R.E. diaperbag. The changind pad is nice and long and zips out. There is ample storage throughout the bag so you could of course fit more diapers if you wanted to. One of my favorite features is the little snap in the center of the large compartment. I know it might seem silly but here is why I like it. It gives you the opportunity to open up the main compartment and really get in there to find what you are looking for. When closed it keeps the nice shape of the diaper bag plus it keeps everything together without limiting your ability to get in and find a quick snack or something else equally as important.

Here is some info from O.R.E.:
Yes, you can have it all and you can even bring it with you! The Twiggy Flower Ultimate Diaper Bag cleverly masquerades as a stylish messenger-style pack and comes with matching Brag Tag – a portable picture frame so you’ll always have your little sweetie with you, too.


Made of cozy cotton canvas and fully lined, SugarBooger’s® Ultimate Diaper Bag features an integrated changing pad (so you don’t have to hunt for it) with a built-in diaper-storage pocket that doubles as a pillow for baby’s head to rest on while being changed.


The generous 786 cubic-inch main compartment is complemented by two bottle pockets, three additional large storage pockets, and four zippered hide-aways. Finish it all off with a wide adjustable strap for comfort with built-in D-ring for keys and, whew! Who knew you could fit so much into one easy-to-carry 16 x 12 x 4-inch package? Machine wash cold, line dry.

Buy It: Visit the O.R.E. site to purchase your own O.R.E. Products. And for my Lucky readers here is a Discount Code just for you! Use this code BLG10 for 10% Off any purchase of $10 or More!
