Ever wondered what other mamas carry in their bags, Mary Poppins-style? We spill the contents of mama’s work bag so you can check out all our essentials to take to the office (from breast pump to glam necklace)!
Maternity leave is over and it’s time to hit the office (or for the mumpreneur, coffice). We’ve chosen the super elegant House of Sheens Zoe Tote in gray, for our office handbag. This smart tote made with delicate calf leather wields pockets to hide away our work essentials and is roomy enough to fit a laptop or iPad. House of Sheens bags, designed by Shireena, make seriously high-quality arm candy — they’re all crafted by artisans within S.E Asia. (See below to score 10% off!)
Our sexy iPad case, also by House of Sheens (available in different colours, made with genuine python and cobra snakeskin), is so lust-worthy in fact, that we’d be happy to hit the theatre (to see Swan Lake woohoo!) and use it as a clutch! To make the transition from office wear to evening glam, we’ve packed our contemporary oriental Bravo Necklace by Bravo Jewelry, sporting semi-precious yellow agate beads and a carved jade pendant designed with oriental motifs based on Feng Shui. This bold statement piece instantly upgrades any outfit! Gloss on some lippy, spray on some dry hair shampoo (it’s great for between washes and there’s a version for dark coloured hair, too) and we are good to go!
Our hand cream of choice is Clary Balm (not just cos we love the cute tin); its made from a healing infusion of virgin olive oil, calendula, chamomile, lavender, plantain and Australian wildflower beeswax and is just the thing when your hands (or lips, elbows, or face) need nourishing. Sore nipples, nursing mama? Try it! It’s 100% organic and non-toxic for mum and baby! Bond girls, take note, ‘cos this is where we introduce you to the Willow Pump, the coolest looking breast pump of all time. You can pump while you’re in a meeting — it has no wires or tubes, fits under your shirt and is super quiet and discreet! (Full review coming soon or ping us if you need to know deets now).
