THERE IS MORE TO MAINE
The Anchored East Company is based out of Maine, bringing to mind sailboats and New England style lighthouses scattered along a rocky shoreline. The name itself is a blend of th classic nautical theme and the feel of being at home on the east coast. The founder and owner of Anchored East, Emily, was born and raised in the state and still lives there today with her husband and two children. She began the company after her second child was born, wanting to expand professionally as well as contribute to her family’s finances. This is something I believe many full time moms can relate to, myself included. And since she is able to run the business remotely, thanks to the flexibility of the internet, she still gets to spend her days with her children while continuing to build and grow her business.
The birth of the company occured in June 2017, only after the design was perfected to create the ideal combination of fashion forward and mommy function approval! As production began, all the final details needed to launch the small business were completed. Emily hopes to add other color options for the bag in the future along with other products to the line. The diaper bag can be bought from Amazon (Prime members rejoice!) or from a few local boutiques located throughout Maine. This is great news because with Amazon you can get your 2 day FREE shipping and their customer service PLUS you can put it on your registry!
MOMMY’S BAG OF TRICKS
When I look at this diaper bag, this is what I think of, because there are so many useful pockets and spots to put stuff! I don’t know about you, but I stressed way too much over picking out my first diaper bag when I was still pregnant but if I had seen this one it would have been a much easier decision! The color, a nice neutral gray (I seriously love me some neutrals) even makes it easy for Dad to carry too! They say parenting is a team effort, why would that not also refer to the diaper bag, right? The material is waterproof/juice-proof/spit up-proof basically all things messy proof which is a must for a bag like this. This is consistent on the interior of the bag as well, which is large and spacious with room for pretty much anything you can think of! This includes, an insulated slot to put a bottle of breastmilk or formula, for a day trip or just running some errands, as well as 3 other pouches and one zipper pocket.
Some of my favorite features are on the exterior of the bag, besides the color and material. On one side, there is a pouch to put a packet of baby wipes with a zipper for incredibly easy access, which has already come in handy on numerous occasions! On the other side is a pouch perfect for your personal water bottle of any size. The front has a pocket that is great for anything you need to grab nice and quick- pacifiers, favorite teether or snacks- or even your own personal items – wallet, keys, and chapstick. And the last pocket on the exterior of the bag is actually on the back, putting it between your back and the bag when worn. This is for anything you want to keep safe or out of reach, and there is padding to protect your back from anything you put in there.
Like I have already mentioned, this is a backpack style bag, but what I haven’t mentioned is that it can stand alone when you set it down. You see, it has four little metal feet on the very bottom which allow it to stay upright every single time you set it down. This is such a great feature especially for when you need to get into the main section of the bag. It’s ability to support itself makes for easy access to all the pockets and also keeps things from falling out. Last but not least, it includes adjustable clips that can be used to attach the bag to just about any stroller and/or shopping cart. This bag basically has every single one of the best diaper bag features for a fraction of the cost without having to sacrifice on style. And what makes it even better, is it doesn’t have to be used as a diaper bag! With it’s sleek design and versatility in can be used for almost anything you need a bag for! So if you are just dying to have this adorable bag all to yourself you can head on over to Amazon to get your very own Anchored East diaper bag!
