Hmmm.. you see 'diaper bag' and you think of Mom, don;t you?
But Dad needs them too! And most Dad's would prefer something
non-pink/purple/orange, and more suited to being carried by a man, right?

I was sent the Amara Shoulder bag in a gorgeous sage and white print to review!
I LOVED how classic the bag looked with the green sage and the black leather in a classically trimmed way. The bags looks MUCH more expensive than it is! Now I may not have a baby or toddler in the house, BUT I have a child active in dance, and means taking ehr to functions and carting a LARGE bag is not a good thing, when you have to walk to the stage on the back 40, or deal with a crowd at a festival, or tight quarters backstage. But having a do-it-call/carry it all diaper bag CAN be the solution! Especially when the bag is as stylish as this one is! And how THIN it is! It isn't bulky like your normal diaper bag at all!
This bag holds EVERYTHING we need to take! It has four exterior and seven interior pockets, that's ELEVEN pockets, that do NOT flap open at any moment, but are nicely stitched so they stay upright and keep their contents SAFE. There are even magnetic closures for the exterior pockets to make opening and closing 'a snap', and to keep your items from rolling OUT if your back gets knocked over. ANd speaking off- there are four smart feet at the base, to keep you bag OFF the floor (and away from those germs!).
The nifty light colored interior is really a huge plus, as it really does make everything inside easier to see- who would have thought? As you can see I can get a full size binder IN the bag, and STILL have plenty of room to add more stuff. Even my DSLR can fit snuggly inside- I know you just had an ah-ha moment didn't you? A fashionable tot/camera bag/purse for the Summer! Yes indeedy, this one IS. And with the padded shoulder strap, it is VERY comfy to carry walking out to the beach, or on your day's adventure. Plus it comes with convenient adjustable straps to attach your Amara to your stroller (for those theme park days!).
But the Amara bag isn't done yet! Also included: is a dirty clothes sac for keeping the mess away from everything else. You remember those baby messes don't you? Yup pretty bad! But as a 7 yr old, sweaty dance clothes can be just as bad! And she usually likes to get OUT of her clothes if we are staying at the festival, for obvious reasons! It also comes with an eco-friendly PEVA-insulated bottle holder- perfect for keeping her thermos of water or water bottle nicely chilled, and the moisture away from everything else in the bag! The bag also comes with a soft changing pad (which can also function as a placemat) or sitting pad! And finally, there is even a mini pouch, just right for a pacifier (or a big girl's jewelry or money!).
SO as you can see, the House of Botori bags are perfect for mom with newborns, who want a stylish bag, and a bag that will grow with their child's needs, yet still stay fashionably chic!
The House of Botori also has some great lunch, work and travel bags for all moms and dads too!
