I’ve never been one to sacrifice style over comfort. Even at eight months pregnant you’d find me in my fave pair of block heels, whilst my Fendi Baguette bag never left my side during my twenties despite the fact that it’s probably the world’s smallest bag and I could barley fit my lipstick in let alone my purse, keys and phone!

Now in my 30’s and with 2 young children, my teeny tiny handbags just won’t cut it-I depend on large, make that gigantic, spacious bags that combine functionality and style that work for me, and my family.

I might need to carry around everything bar the kitchen sink, but I want the perfect piece of arm candy to hold it all in! That’s not asking for too much is it?!

This is where the Pacapod Cromwell tote bag comes in… elegantly chic yet utterly practical too, it’s a must-have for any Glamour Mama!

With a bold and beautiful combination of fabric and leather, the bag exudes timeless style, whilst the saddlery detailing reminds me of Hermes or Aspinal of London – although the Pacapod is just a fraction of the price at £150!

In fact, the Pacapod Cromwell is so much more than just a bag. It comes with 2 detachable ‘3-in-1’ pods that are discreetly hidden in the rear of the bag and allows you to keep your bag organised no matter how many nappies, baby wipes or toys you need to carry around with you (and as you can imagine with 2 kids under 6, I get lumbered with quite a lot of stuff!).


Plus the fact these pods are detachable means that you can continue to use the bag even as your children become older, this classic tote bag will simply never go out of style.

What’s more, this versatile bag can be worn in three ways – either over the shoulder, across the body or on the pram.

Pacapod was founded by Mother of 2 Jacqueline Waggett, which explains why it’s so suited to every parents’ requirements, the compartments make finding your essential items super easy, whilst the contemporary design is perfect for fashionista mums who want a bag they’d choose to rock, baby or not.

It’s easy to see why Pacapod has won countless awards which includes accolades from Mumsnet and Parenting and Pregnancy magazine too.
