|The Purple Dandelion Cooler bag and Pink Giraffe Lunch Box from SoYoung Mother|
Catherine Choi is the creator and owner behind SoYoung Mother and she first started off designing a diaper bag that was and still is, sophisticated and easy on the eyes. Her diaper/lifestyle bag is an all important parent bag, easy to carry with a shallow bottom and see-through pockets so you'll never have to fumble trying to look for what you need with baby on hand!
Catherine is actually a family friend and I met up with her sometime back. I think the first time I heard and saw her bag was when I saw her at church actually. I then saw her website and was smitten when her lunch and cooler bags were introduced.
And here we are! I love the modern designs and the colours really pop off the bags. Most importantly, these bags open up wide and are incredibly easy to clean (just a damp cloth will do). The bags are also coated on the outside so you'll never have to worry about stains and they also come with a handy strap. I have the Purple Dandelions cooler bag and although they look smaller than the lunch boxes, they pack quite a satisfying lunch as well! I've gotten so many great comments at work and at Keira's school as well.
If you're looking for a lunch bag for yourself or your loved ones, head on over to the SoYoung website and see where you can you get yours. You can either order off the website shop http://www.soyoungmother.com/shop.php or check their retailer link stockist. Thanks Cathy for our great bags! We are loving them..
**Nota: A small tip in washing/drying instructions from Catherine: "Just in case you get a spill in the lunch box, even though the instructions say do not machine wash or dry, if the linen gets wet to the point where you can see it has penetrated the outside layer, then please dry in the dryer." I'm thinking low heat and check to make sure your bag is thoroughly dry. Thanks Catherine!
