For part III in my Shop Small Series I’m introducing a brand that I get to work with! Before I get to that, if you haven’t been following along with my series, I’m showcasing some of my favorite small businesses in the weeks leading up to Christmas. The goal is to not only share my favorite brands, but also hopefully encourage you to focus on shopping small and local this season! To read about my shop small story click HERE, and check out previous posts on my favorite chocolate shop and this very unique hot chocolate.
Today’s awesome small business is a diaper bag company called Ann Medeline. They make quality insulated bags with tons of pockets to stay organized. Among other things, they’re water-resistant, come with stroller straps, and they just so happen to be super freaking cute. I’m not a mama, but I know that I can’t do large one-strap bags. They put all the pressure on one shoulder and they’re so uncomfortable, so my favorite aspect of these is that they’re backpacks. On top of their main diaper bags, they also offer insulated lunch bags for pumping mamas (or lunch), as well as car organizers, changing pads, and my favorite: mini bags for your mini me’s! Scroll down to see my photos, I sooo want one for my nephew. Are you a mama? What do you think of these? I know their products have also been used as college backpacks and camera bags!
These photos are some that I’ve taken for Ann Medeline’s business over the past year or so. It’s such a blast working with beautiful models and the sweetest kids for a little photo shoot. I’d recommend these bags to all my mama friends, I think they’re beautifully crafted, and like any great bag, I’d be proud to carry it around all day.
