Review: Zosephine Messenger Diaper Bags






My favorite time of year is quickly approaching us, and Yes that is indeed the Christmas Season, Ho, Ho, Ho!! And, I am so totally smitten with my new diaper bag from Zosephine that I have to include it in my Holiday Season Gift Guide Recommendations. With the festive holiday season right around the corner, I am beginning to review products that I feel will make special and very unique holiday gifts. And oooh yes, the spectacular Messenger Style Diaper Bags from Zosephine are at the top of my Holiday Gift Guide List! The Zosephine Messenger Style Bags offer sleek, modern styling with artisan detailing and are roomy enough to hold everything that the Hip Mama needs for baby (and herself too)! What I love most about these unique Diaper Bags is they make you look and feel professional, pulled together and organized, and give your outfit that complete "polished" look. As busy mother's we may feel the chaos around us, and in our minds feel that sense of being overwhelmed by all that we have to do, but carrying this ultra sleek and chic Zosephine Bag will give others the illusion that we have it all together, and those of you who have been there know exactly what I mean! It reminds me of that old deodorant commercial that had the catch phrase "Never Let Them See you Sweat". Well, when you carry this extraordinary Diaper Bag it will communicate "Never Let Them See you Stressed"! It is no wonder that such celebrities like Oprah, Angelina Jolie and Courtney Cox covet this bag, along with many others!


Carrying this simple yet functionally chic diaper bag will erase any feelings that you look frumpy & dumpy, because these bags make you look classy and urban hip. No one will ever know what you house inside of it. While you will have it filled with diapers, baby powder, baby wipes and all your other little baby necessities, it will look as though you are sporting around your laptop and business files. Being a mommy is work, and it does require a lot of important gear and why not house all those imperative items in a bag that represents the mother who takes that role seriously! That's why these bags will make even the mother who thinks she has it all, an extra special and very unique Holiday gift this year. Let me share a little about Zosephine the company with you:

REVIEW

I was sent fabulous Seattle Messenger Diaper Bag to review. It couldn't have arrived at a better time as I really needed a more functional, spacious and stylish diaper bag to carry all of my daughter's gear in. I had seen pictures online of The Seattle Bag so I knew I was going to be pleased with it in terms of visual esthetics, but little did I know that to behold this bag in person is even more spectacular than just seeing images of it online. It is impeccably made, the way it is constructed is of the utmost quality, truly meticulously crafted and will no doubt stand the test of time and abuse.

The first thing that I noticed is the gorgeous color. I had envisioned it to be light blue based on the pictures I saw of it online, but the color is more of a blue-teal with a hint of chocolate brown in the woven fabric which I really love. The complimenting fabric that embellished the front flap of the bag as well as the wide bag strap is absolutely gorgeous! The colors are brown, green, that blue-teal and light blue, such a nature and sea feel to it, just like Seattle!! Also, the material is a nice thick linen-like fabric, much more texture to it than I thought, which also appealed to me right away, it just gives the design such a rich, elegant look and feel, classy! Next, a mother's dream in terms of storage!! There are pockets so fit everything I carry around with me so I can stay effectively organized and be able to find quickly and easily the items I need in a hurry when out and about. This diaper bag offers so much storage compared to any bags I have used before and will be such a life saver when I am trying to change my daughter in a dash on the go, love that it will make my life so much easier!

The bags are lined with a white nylon fabric that is a breeze to wipe up! No more messing around trying to keep my old cloth diaper bag clean, this one wipes up quick and easily and if something should leak inside of it, not to worry, because the lining will protect the outside material from getting soiled. I also love that the lighter color of the interior makes it easy to see what is inside your bag so you can access what you need without exerting much effort to see it, the light color makes everything inside stand out!

All the Zosephine Diaper Bags come equipped with their own white nylon changing pad, now how amazing is that?! It folds up perfectly to fit into the nice size inner square pocket. Oh, and did I mention that there are a total of 7 inner pockets?! How incredible is that, now you know what I mean about being able to stay organized! There are 3 smaller pockets on one side of the inner bag, 2 long and narrow pockets on each side of the end of the inner bags which are great for holding either your baby's bottles or lotions and talc that you may want to bring with you. Then there is a zippered compartment on the other side and a large deep pocket which can store any number of baby gear items you want to make sure to have on hand. Then the entire center of the bag is wide open to hold diapers, onsies, teeshirts, wipes and whatever doesn't fit into the pockets. This bag truly is my idea of a dream diaper bag!

I love the cool messenger style of this bag. There is an outside zippered compartment and the beautiful pattern fabric strap of the bag is adjustable so you can position it so that it fits on your shoulder exactly where you want it. I love that versatility since I very often find bags that don't always come down low enough for me to be able to reach for something I want comfortably. Having the ability to adjust the strap to where I can most easily reach inside it in a hurry is an important feature for me.

There are two magnetic snaps that work to close the front flap. There is the perfect size small cell-phone pocket prominently placed just under the opening flap which is wonderful! I like that where the pocket is positioned will protect your cell phone from falling out but makes it accessible for you to easily reach for it when you need it. Okay, just when you thought you had it all with this bag there is indeed more! There is a nice size steel key holder hook sewn right into the upper portion of the bag. No more worrying about losing your keys or not being able to find them in a New York minute.

Every single attention to detail was considered when this bag was designed resulting in the ultimate mommy diaper bag. From the moment I took the bag out of the box I knew it was extraordinary from any other diaper bag I have used before. I know that once my daughter no longer needs me to carry her diaper gear I will be able to use this bag for just me! It is so roomy and ergonomically styled for convenience for keeping me organized, that I will transform it into my own handbag once my diaper changing days are over with. Now that is a gift that will keep on giving!

A very special thank you to Zosephine for providing me with this product to review.
