We all know how annoying it is to lug around a huge diaper bag with the whole kitchen sink inside. Wouldn’t it be nice to pack just the essentials? With the new Sensible Clutch, you absolutely can! The Sensible Clutch is a collaboration between The Sensible Mama & TWELVElittle. The Sensible Mama is an exclusive online baby boutique where I regularly shop for all of my favorite essentials for me and my kids! TWELVElittle is an amazing diaper bag company that focuses on providing fashionable and functional everyday bags for the modern family.

I will be honest I am personally an over-packer with EVERYTHING, so only packing the essentials can be tough lol. The clutch is so cute and spacious though so I can easily pack what I need and still keep a bag in the car for all my extra just-in-case items. This simple but stylish bag is perfect for all stages of motherhood. Whether you use it as a diaper bag or a date night clutch. It really is a unique, pack-it-all purse. It is an absolute mom essential.

Not only is the Sensible Clutch cute and spacious but it is also made with great quality. The exterior of this clutch is made of 100% vegan leather. It was originally made in teal but was recently released in a gorgeous grey color as well.  The interior is a mix of water-resistant polyester lining and vegan leather. It is free of harsh chemicals such as PVC. Spot cleaning is recommended. The inside is a beautiful Gingham print lining designed with the TWELVElittle & The Sensible Mama Logo.

This fabulous bag has both a Mommy Pocket and a Baby Pocket with just enough space to hold all the essentials. The Mommy Pocket has multiple card slots, a clear id slot, and a mesh zipper pocket.

The Baby pocket includes a slip pocket for diapers and an elastic strap to keep a baby wipe case in place. The Sensible Clutch does come with a custom TWELVElittle wipes case, but you can replace it with your own if you wish. The way you pack it is entirely up to you. You can pack it up for you and the kids, or just pack it for you. An Amazon Fire Tablet fits easily in the elastic straps as well.

Side gusset snaps on both sides allow the “baby” pocket zipper to go from half-way to a full opening. Double zippers allow access to all pockets for easy opening. It includes a vegan leather short strap with an adjustable buckle and an adjustable webbing long strap. You can wear it crossbody with the long strap or over the shoulder with the short strap. Both straps are removable so you can carry it as you wish.

The great thing about the Sensible Clutch is that there are so many uses and ways to pack it. Even if you are not a mom and have no kids, you can still use this cute bag. It looks more like a purse than a diaper bag so the possibilities are endless. It’s the perfect bag to use with or without baby.  So many accessories look super cute with it too.

As mentioned earlier the Sensible Clutch was originally made in a stunning teal, but was recently released in a sleek grey color! Both are available to buy now from The Sensible Mama!

Mommy Con 2018 – Orlando

Saturday, September 1st we headed to Orlando for my first ever Mommy Con! Mommy Con is a convention dedicated to educating parents about natural birth, breastfeeding, and babywearing. They advocate values of holistic health, eco-friendly diapering, child safety, female self-care, and wellness. They have created a community of support, acceptance, and non-judgment for parents in their journey of parenthood.

Mommy Con 2018 was held at the Caribe Royale All-Suite Hotel & Convention Center and it was a blast! It was amazing to be surrounded by fellow Moms and Dad’s, attending the sessions and checking out all the great companies. It was definitely an event worth experiencing.

There was a full day of events scheduled for both Moms and Dads. We enjoyed many Educational sessions, tested out products, and meet with a variety of parenting experts. There was a babywearing lounge, the Vagina Village where they discussed feminine wellness, a cloth diaper resource center, and play places spaces throughout the event. Huggies even provided a free diaper changing area. There was also a quiet room set up for napping babies and toddlers. I even spotted some parents napping in there lol.

There were games, giveaways, and tons of shopping! I was able to meet with some of my favorite vendors while discovering some new companies as well. They all offered a variety of products and services geared towards kids under 5.

There were also tons of workshops and sessions geared towards Dads in the Daddy Con portion,  along with a Dad Games Competition featuring That Dad Mat. Daddy Con is the ultimate dad focused parenting convention that covers all aspects of fatherhood.

Mommy Con 2018 was a fun event, and I can’t wait to attend next year! Whether you are pregnant with your first or a mom of three, I highly suggest attending. It is the ultimate #momweekend full of education, learning, samples, shopping, and the ability to test out new products! You will meet with leading experts on everything relevant to parenting. You can also try on baby carriers, get picky eating solutions, and potty training tips.

Mother’s Day Giveaway

Mother's Day (1)

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th! Setting aside a day to honor Mother’s is a tradition going back centuries. Most celebrate by spending the day with their Mom and exchanging gifts.

As a Mom and a daughter, this day means a lot to me. I became a Mom at a very young age and although it wasn’t planned, it changed my life for the better. I now have three kids. I will admit being a Mom of three kids is a lot more challenging than I expected. I’ve had good days and bad days. I have even gone through postpartum depression (more on that later). It hasn’t always been easy. Yet, I wouldn’t change it for the world. The sleepless nights, the tears, the stress are worth those moments that remind me why I would do anything in the world for them. Becoming a mom has been the best thing to ever happen to me.

So many times you feel like you've failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child, you are SUPER MOM.

Let us all try and remember all the Mother’s in the world and make their day as special as possible. They may act like it’s no big deal, but I guarantee you it is. Acknowledge them and make them feel appreciated because being a Mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world.
