Clippy London Review and Competition

I was sent a great style your own large beach bag to review from Clippy London, it had 24 pockets that you could fill with anything your heart desired, if your feeling sentimental, romantic, humorous you can tailor design your bag to your mood!

These bags will never go out of fashion because you can update them and keep changing them with the latest styles.  If a certain colour is in you can fill in the pockets with what’s hot, then the next month if its not you can try something new!

The quality of the bag was good, it was very strong it survived being filled with heavy toys and dragged around by my youngest.  The handles seem sturdy too.  So if your filling your bag with shoes, cakes, wine for a girly weekend this is the bag for you to take shopping!  You could even hide your shopping list in one of the pockets or anything else you need to remember because if you’re like me since being a mum your brain is often filled with dust bunnies!

I just hosted a baby shower and one of these bags would have been lovely done up with baby pictures of people attending, you could then play guess who everyone is and at the end the mum to be could leave with a stylish bag (to carry her baby shower presents in).

You could use black and white photos, add ribbons and beads, shells, basically you can have a whole lot of fun making your bag unique to you!  My mum adores card making, she would be in her element filling each pocket with a mini card she has lovingly created.  The perfect bag to showcase her work!  Or you could give your previous children lots of little pieces of paper to scribble on and hey presto a perfect proud parent art gallery on the move.

Clippy London even has some fancy stickers to buy if you get stuck like the adorable kitten and slightly grumpy looking cat set.  If like me you fill your bag with all sorts you can buy a spotty-lining bag to let people really think your sophisticated and give the impression you have Gucci sunglasses, fancy perfume etc inside instead of crayons, snacks for the kids and probably an old unwrapped sweet stuck on the bottom!

Youngest helped me with the design.  He was slightly scary with the scissors so when I managed to wrestle them off him, he settled down to picking which pictures we would use and which pocket would be there new home. 

Here is youngest at work creating our masterpiece (of our favourite photo’s of him and his brother):


Here is the end result:


This bag has an RRP of £25 and I would have gladly paid that because its great value for money, as it’s a bag that will never grow boring, there is no limit to what you can do with it!  Plus if you stuck for an activity to do with the kids, empty it and get them to fill it again (keep repeating until they get tired and need a nap!). 

Clippy London have kindly offered a follower of my blog the chance to win an item of their choice (subject to availability) from their website www.clippylondon.co.ukTo enter complete the rafflecopter below, the competition will close on the 3rd of May.
