Now that my growing baby hump has revealed our big news I can finally start sharing some of my favourite finds for our much loved bundle of joy. I secretly started my shopping a few months ago with a new ride to seat our two littlest ones and last week I added a gorgeous gr8x nappy bag to match, I am super pleased with this stylish travel combo:

If you are a regular Hip Little One reader you no doubt know that I have a soft spot for all shades of blue and I often dress both my girls and my only boy in blue. So regardless of what our new addition will turn out to be (we love our surprises!) I was immediately drawn to the neutral blue colour of the recently released Zoe, doesn’t it look awesome?

Zoe (RRP $99.95, Snowflake Blue) is the latest addition to the gr8x nappy bag range and it is quickly winning hearts across the country. I am not surprised these bags are flying off the shelves, as the spacious but lightweight satchel style bag is packed with clever features that will make life easier for busy parents on the go. After five babies I consider myself a bit of a nappy bag expert and I know exactly what I want and don’t want, so no more miss-buys for me.

Measuring a generous 39cm x 26cm x 17cm in size the Zoe offers plenty of storage space for all your baby’s gear and even some of your own bits and pieces too. Inside you’ll find neat internal pockets to keep everything tidy and organised, on the outside are two smaller front zip pockets (ideal for your car keys or your favourite lip gloss) and a handy end pocket on each side to keep your baby’s and your own drink bottle within hand’s reach.

Personally I just love the clever zip-around top, allowing the bag to open up nice and wide so you can instantly find what you are looking for. Especially when you have a nappy emergency you’ll be glad not to have to dig around in the dark for ages to find a packet of wipes or a clean nappy!


There is plenty more to love about Zoe like an adjustable shoulder strap with comfortable padding, super practical easy-clean canvas fabric and protective metal feet on the base to ensure the bottom of your bag doesn’t get dirty or damaged when placed on the ground. As an extra bonus your new Zoe bag comes with a complimentary soft, padded, change mat and a zipped insulated bottle traveller in matching blue fabric.

Blue may be my absolute favourite colour, but if is not really your shade you’ll be pleased to know that the Zoe bag is also available in neutral and classy Snowflake Grey to perfectly match your monochrome look.

Big Baby Shower – Day 10

Yesterday we talked about going out for a quick walk with a new bub with minimal gear, but we all know that on some days and outings you do want to take more than just the basics. Don’t worry, there are other options than huge boring, black backpacks. Here’s how to bring ‘the bulk’ without it looking bulky and without losing your sense of style.

The spacious Calypso Satchel by Australian label gr8x is a gorgeous baby bag with a convenient double zip around top flap, allowing you to easily see inside and find what you are looking for. No more endless feeling around in the dark hoping to dig up the item you need, we don’t have time for that! Two zipped front pockets will you keep your car keys, phone or lipgloss safe and within hand’s reach.

Made from soft PU leather and with an adjustable shoulder strap the Calypso Satchel (RRP $139.95) is comfortable to wear, even when it’s filled with lots of baby supplies. On the inside you’ll find a soft, padded change mat for hygienic nappy changes on the go and an insulated bottle holder to keep your baby’s drinks at the right temperature when out and about.

If ‘Out with the old and in with the new’ is your motto for 2015 you will love today’s giveaway from our lovely friends at gr8x. Most women won’t leave the house without their favourite bag, it holds all your important goodies (and generally a lot of not-so-important items too) and while it may look fabulous on the outside the inside is often a gigantic mess. Time to tip your bag upside down, work out what stays and goes and move the must-haves over to this stylish new Bianca Satchel:

Bianca Satchel

Featuring an eye-catching faux buffalo leather exterior the Bianca Satchel (RRP $179.95) is going to have all the mums talking, it looks really trendy and nothing like a boring baby bag at all!

Not only does the Bianca look awesome, it’s a super practical design too with a handy dual zip that allows you to open your spacious nappy bag nice and wide to help you easily find what you are looking for. Inside you can count on a selection of practical pockets to keep your belongings organised and within hand’s reach. The Bianca is said to be sporting the new gr8x signature lining, I can’t wait to see what they have been working on!

This lovely baby bag can be carried by the handles or worn over the shoulder using the included adjustable, removable shoulder strap. To make sure your bag will look like new for as long as possible it is fitted with protective feet to prevent the bag from touching the ground when you put it down.

The much anticipated, and very beautiful, Bianca Satchel is due to arrive in Australia next month so if you are the lucky winner of this gorgeous new gr8x design you’ll be one of the first Aussie mums to get your hands on one. Good luck!
