Over the past few months we’ve introduced you to some gorgeous new arrivals from the latest gr8x baby bag collection: Charlotte, Escapades, Ella… they are all so pretty! But of course we couldn’t end 2015 without introducing you to the lucky last design (and as always we are giving one away too!). Meet the beautiful Charlotte in classy charcoal finish:

gr8x Charlotte Tote

This season the new Charlotte Tote (RRP $159.95) has hit the shelves in three great looks: Avalon Damask Dove Grey, Avalon Damask Twilight Blue and last but not least Charcoal. This classic, neutral colour is easy to mix and match and doesn’t go out of fashion making it a smart and stylish choice for modern mums.

The Charlotte tote is designed with a high quality PU canvas laminate outer that is easy to wipe clean, no need to worry about grubby fingers and sticky messes ruining your lovely new bag. Even the bottom of your bag is well protected thanks to the protective feet that lift the base off the dirty floor.

The Charlotte Tote is fitted with a detachable front zipped pouch so you can carry your small valuables (phone, car keys, wallet) individually if needed. I particularly love the two end pockets that allow instant access to your and baby’s drinks.

On the inside there is plenty of room for the essentials like nappies, wipes, a change mat (included), bottle holder (included), a change of clothes and toys. Keeping your baby bag organised is easy using the handy internal pockets, a neat and tidy bag will save you precious time and sanity!

If you are a regular Hip Little One reader you probably spotted the eye catching new Avalon Damask print that we featured in last month’s gr8x post. Move over plain and boring baby bags, this beautiful custom print shows that mamas don’t have to give in on style when travelling with their babies. If you’re looking for a spacious bag that will easily hold all your baby essentials this new release will have you swooning:

Ella Carry All

The trendy Ella Carry All (RRP $159.95, available in Twilight Blue and Dove Grey) is measuring a roomy L40cm x W15cm x H30cm in size yet is surprisingly light weight, making it perfect for active mums on the go.

The gr8x design team knows most parents are busy enough as it is, which is why they make sure their baby bags are fitted with lots of little parenting hacks that save you time and hassle. Take for example the high quality nylon outer: it’s strong and durable and can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth, no tears wasted over sticky fingers or dirty marks.

Ella Carry All BlueAnother great feature is the collection of internal and external pockets in a range of sizes, helping you to keep your nappies, wipes, creams, baby food and other baby must-haves tidy and organised. After all, no mum has time to dig around in the dark depths of her baby bag desperately hoping to find what she is looking for (especially when dealing with a messy emergency!). And how clever are the adjustable stroller clips for use on pram or stroller? Thumbs up for hands free travelling!

Lovely bonus: The Ella Carry All comes with a free quality insulated, zipped bottle traveller and padded change mat in gr8x signature print.

Australian designer label gr8x has just released its latest collection and I have already spotted the perfect match to my navy blue Joolz ride:

Charlotte Tote

The brand new Charlotte Tote (RRP $159.95, available in Twilight Blue and Dove Grey) is sure to be a hit with hip mamas who are looking for a stylish baby bag that ticks all the boxes.

Turn heads wherever you go with this practical tote-style bag featuring the trendy new Avalon Damask print and matching PU leather shoulder straps/trim. It has a strong, high quality nylon outer that is easy to wipe-clean and a handy front pouch that can be unzipped, creating a perfect mini-bag for your car keys, phone and some change or even baby’s dummy.

gr8x Charlotte Tote Dove GreyOf course there are plenty more pockets to help you stay organised: a convenient ‘slide pocket’ at the front, two handy end pockets on either side (ideal for your water bottle and baby’s milk) and a range of internal pockets to keep all your baby gear neat and tidy. To stop your precious new bag from getting dirty and damaged the base has been fitted with protective feet that lift your bag off the ground, allowing you to enjoy your bag for longer.

As always the new gr8x designs include a quality insulated, zipped bottle traveller, padded change mat in gr8x signature print and a set of adjustable stroller clips to easily attach your bag to your pram or stroller.

JJ Cole Collections

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 10

Of course we could not possibly run a Welcome Baby Giveaway without adding a stylish nappy bag to the massive prize pool, after all every new mum needs something to carry to around all those adorable baby goodies in. I think this brand new JJ Cole Collections number totally fits the bill and it’s perfect for parents of beautiful Spring babies:

The tote-style Camber Baby Bag (RRP $89.95) is the ideal pick for trendy mamas on the go who want a convenient, spacious bag that is both pretty and practical.

Camber Citrus BreezeAvailable in a range of gorgeous prints and colours the Camber will be your go-to bag this season, just toss in your must-haves and head out for a wonderful day outside with your precious bundle(s). Wear it over your shoulder with the padded shoulder strap, go traditional and carry it by the two tote straps or enjoy hands-free and clip your Camber to your pram using the free no-slip Grips attachments.

Camber Black GoldLike a real tote should the Camber offers plenty of storage space, both inside and out. One of my favourite features is the large outside pocket, away from nappy creams and baby food it’s the perfect slot for a book or even your iPad. The handy bottle pockets on either end allow for easy access to a much needed drink while the two zip pockets keep car keys, your phone, a dummy or your lip gloss within hand’s reach.
