I was given a nappy bag as a gift which is great when I have the pram to hang it on, but I find it really tough managing my fabulous Mimco handbag (that February purchase) with all my stuff, the big nappy bag and carrying a baby.

Not long after getting the handbag, I bought a handbag liner from Borne Naked which I loved for how it turned the chaos in my large bag into blissful order. Time saved rummaging for items was great, but I still struggled with a solution for how I could convert my bag from the times when I only needed my stuff in there, to doubling as a baby bag when I really didn't want to lug a separate nappy bag out with me.
The solution - two Borne Naked liners! One filled with all the lip glosses my heart desires, my trusty Chanel No.5 and other such Mummy gear, and one with all I need for a quick trip out with bub (change mat, nappy, wipes, dummy, emergency toy etc...) No more last minute rummaging before I leave the house to toss out what is surplus and having to run around finding the little things I need for bub.

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know I am on a bit of a mission to create more order in my life. After my efforts in sorting out my handbag dilemma, I have yet again one of those contented feelings you get sitting back, looking at something great you have created. As I type this, my "mummy" liner sits in my handbag and the "baby" version is on the bookshelf in Baby T's room ready for a quick swap over. The only item I have doubled up in both is a lip gloss.
As a side note, you may have noticed, the little camo satchel in amongst the items. This is from Baby Spare Ware. I don't remember where I picked it up from, but it's a nifty little emergency set of baby clothes.
