About a month ago now, I hopped onto a train to London to enjoy the MAD Blog Awards presentation dinner in a swishy hotel.
As the dinner was formal, I needed to wear something suitable for a cocktail party and dutifully shoes my sparkly top, trousers, shoes, etc. and laid them all out ready to pack up for the overnight stay.
Yes. That's an iron. I do things like this when I go away; I take an iron.
Luckily, I had been sent a rather beautiful, and highly appropriate, Black Cabs overnight bag from Pink Lining to transport my necessities. Measuring 62(L) x 26(H) x 26(W)cm, I'll be honest that I was sceptical that I'd get all of that lot above into the bag. However, in it went with ease and with room to spare for a few bars of chocolate in case of a midnight feast!
The bag was the perfect size for an overnight trip. Everything I needed (including the iron, along with hair straighteners, toiletries, 'party clothes', pyjamas, outfit for the next day) fitted in to a very manageable bag which was light and easy to carry. It's a stylish bag, with a hard wearing, wipe-clean exterior and the distinguishable 'pink lining' interior. It certainly looked the part in first class on the train, and in the taxi.
The Pink Lining Black Cabs overnight bag is available for £55.
I was sent this item for the purpose of this review, my opinion is honest and unbiased.
