Hello and welcome to Jessie Bear Blue!
I'm Charlie, mum to 4-year-old Jessica and twins, James and Chloe (born December 2019).
I live in Warwickshire with my lovely family which also includes my partner, dogs (Tommy and Poppy) and rabbits (Sky and Flash).
Whilst excitedly making my pre-baby purchases when pregnant with Jessica, I remember having a surprisingly difficult time deciding on the choice of baby changing bag. Not because there were too many to choose from, but because I found they either looked great but had a price tag to make your eyes sting, or they were affordable but seemed to be designed, as far as looks were concerned, purely with the baby in mind and with little consideration for the parent.
Don't get me wrong, taking on the title of mum is the most incredible thing, but sometimes us mums don’t always feel quite as good about ourselves as we deserve to.
For example, I didn't use a handbag for months after having Jessica, I just used to carry a changing bag around with me which looked more like it was designed for her than it was for me.
I struggled to find bags which were practical, affordable and, yes, fashionable.
Who better then, to design baby changing bags than the person they are intended for? My bags are here to help you keep your own bit of identity during the early years of parenthood.
Why the name Jessie Bear Blue?
Well after my blue-eyed beauty, of course!
She is definitely my absolute inspiration behind this whole project. I have worked so hard to get this business idea up and running and she has been all the motivation I have needed.
And with twins a few weeks old, I'm now ready to launch my business at long last.
To understand the business is to understand just how important Jessica, James and Chloe are to me.
Welcome to my family.
