Hopefully you all  have a summer holiday booked and you’re looking forward to a week or two in the sunshine. It will be a time for taking things easy, reading a book or two, enjoying a few glasses of wine, eating some good food and not thinking of the school runs, washing, ironing, cleaning or work..!

The Mia Tui Amelie bag is the essential travel item for the summer and you can win one full of Oriflame products.


The Amelie bag is hefty enough to accommodate a laptop, e-reader, iPad or work files, the Amelie Travel Bag – features a multi-pocketed waterproof interior so that travel documents, pens, mobile phone, keys, water bottle and other essentials can be stowed in separate compartments and are easily accessible.

The Perfect Travel Bag

When I designed the 1st Mia Tui bag it was for travel, having two kids and doing a lot of long haul flights I needed a bag that could fit everything, allow me to find everything quickly and easily, whilst negotiating a then 3 & 4 year old,  and zip up.

So the Amelie bag was born.

I thought with the summer holidays not too far away (really they are not that far away) I would tell you why I think this is the perfect travel bag and give you a little discount code if you wanted to purchase one. Code MT102 in the discount box will give you 20% off the Amelie range.

For some reason as soon as you step foot in an airport you kind of lose your mind, you always panic if you have your passports, where have you put your keys, have you got your foreign currency, then you have to contend with security and getting everything out of your bag – I think you get my picture.

So what I wanted with the Amelie bag is, that if used properly you will know exactly where everything is and you can breeze through check-in, security and board the plane looking cool and stylish.!

The bags that you get with the Amelie bag should be used as follows..

The Clutch – Your purse, passports, boarding passes (then when you are at your destination use as your evening bag)

The Carry-on Liquid PVC Bag – Well as the name suggests use this for your carry on-liquids or make-up. When you are at your destination this is great for your small electrical items around the pool as it is water-resistant.

The Large PVC Bag – This can be used if travelling with small kids for a change of clothes, nappies & wipes, or if you have older kids for their colouring pens and bits to keep them quiet and let them easily see what is in the bag, or for your camera/video & leads. When you have got to your destination use for your sun creams.

You have clips for your keys so you will never lose them, together with phone and pen holders, so if you have to fill in a immigration form you will know where your pen is, oh and your passport and boarding passes for your flight number because they are in your clutch bag. 🙂

The water bottle holder is great when you have  passed through security and need to grab a bottle of water, and you won’t have any accidents with spilt water in your bag.

The beauty of this bag is that it is water-proof inside and out so you can use it as your beach bag if you have gone somewhere hot.

The large pocket is big enough for a 13″ laptop and I am told the clutch bag can actually fit a Kindle..!

When you have everything you need to hand around the inside of the bag in the right bags, then there is a big space in the middle to dump the non-essential items.

I hope this give you a better understanding on how best to use the Amelie bag as a Travel Bag.

Mia Tui reviews

I thought I would collate all the reviews that have been done on the Mia Tui bags in one easy to find page.

I designed the bags to be used for so many different occasions, Work, Baby and Travel, you choose how you use your bag.

How I would use the bags are as follows

Amelie – this is the perfect travel bag for me, it is airline compliant and I know where all my essential things are. Once at my desitination it becomes my beach bag as it is water-proof and the clear bags are for my suncreams, ipod etc.

Use as a….

  • Hospital Bag
  • Work bag
  • Baby bag

Ava – I use this when I am out with the girls, I can fit everything I need for them, water, snacks etc but still have my stuff at hand in the co-orinating clutch.

Use as a…

  • Baby Bag
  • Work bag
  • Travel bag

Grace – this is my everyday bag, I can still take drinks with me and always find phone, pens and keys, I wear it across my body so my hands are free, but if I want to change I just take out the strap and its as traditional handbag

Use as a..

  • Everyday bag
  • Baby bag
  • Light travel bag
