Clippy Bag *Giveaway* CLOSED

Clippy, bag, personalised bag
Ever since I became a mum, instead of buying a bag because it was beautiful, I had to make sure the bags I bought was big enough to store all the baby stuff. And this bag just kept on growing and growing, until the matter of design does not matter anymore. It is a good bag as long as it can keep everything in place.

However, it does not stop me from longing to find a perfect sized handbag that I can use for shorter distance, or when I'm out and about on my own while hubby looks after the kids.

I was really excited when I was given the opportunity to review one of the Clippy bags, which famous people such as Jamie Oliver uses. I loved the website, and the idea of able to personalise your own bag. It could just be the handbag for me since I have such a hard time finding one.

A good variety to choose from on their website
Clippy bag has lots of pockets for you to slip things in to personalise it, such as photos, postcards, fabrics, and smaller decorations such as souvenirs, stickers and anything you can think of.

If you aren't keen in having people seeing what you carry in the bag, you can buy one of their suede lining pouch that costs £10 to slip inside for more privacy. The pouch has a zipped inner pocket as well.

I've used the provided kits and some pictures to personalise the bag. It looked really cute, and I love the sticker kits they sell. But I think it's not very suitable for the good old me. I would probably decorate another bag for Abby using the kits as she couldn't keep her hands off them! I wasn't gonna give up on the bag though, and decorated with other items I've found that is more suitable for me.

I bought some silver fabric, pendants and beads to decorate my bag. Although it looked simple, but I'm sure I'll be picking up more items to decorate it with. This bag is now ready to come with me to blog camp in Birmingham!

Another good thing is, if you get bored easily, you just need to swap the decorations!

Clippy's website also sell other products, check out their lunch bags and Luxe range. If you can't be bothered with decorating your own bag, you can create customised bags online as well.
