The Grace from Mia Tui

Mia Tui was created in 2010 by Charlotte a Mum of 2 who had spent years searching for the perfect bag. She created Mia Tui the busy woman's best friend that is stylish yet practical at the same time. Mia Tui was created in Vietnam a place Charlotte lived for 3 years, she spent hours in the factory ensuring there was a good working environment. Mia Tui are proud that their people come before anything else, and that's where the quality starts in the hands of their happy craftsmen and women. No matter if your a busy gym bunny Mummy, a working Mum or a Stay at home Mum with a full on schedule there will be a Mia Tui to suit your lifestyle.
I had a bit of a job on my hands deciding which Mia Tui I would like to try out. I don't normally use a handbag but when I am out with the children I usually have a bag for life slung over the handles of Skye's mobility pushchair. I needed something with a decent size as I have to take Skye's things out with me. She has specialist continence nappies that are quiet large so a small bag just wouldn't do, I spoke with Mia Tui and they recommended the Grace bag and after looking at it I agreed this would be perfect.
The Grace bag retails for £45 and is available in 8 stunning colours (it is only £39.99 in the chocolate colour way) Inside the bag there is also 2 other little bags, a clear pvc bag perfect for make up or even to use as a wet bag. There is also a small clutch bag which is ideal for your purse and keys so you don't have to dig around your bag for them. The thing I love most about the Grace is that it comes with 2 straps, a long one for using as cross body satchel and a short on for wearing just on your shoulder.
The top of the bag zip closes which is a good security option for when out and about, I have had a few bags that only press stud close and prefer the zip option. There is a small zip compartment on the bag of the bag also if you want to put anything handy in there. The internal of the bag is a beautiful vivid pink colour and there are some fab features inside the bag also.
  1. Insulated bottle pocker
  2. Pen and mobile phone holder
  3. large pocket on either side 
  4. Elasticated key holder (LOVE this no more digging round for my keys!!)
I have used the bag daily since I got it and I honestly love it, the leather is really soft and its looks really stylish. I have used it when out and about with the children and also when I have gone out on my own. I have packed it up with kid and Mum essentials to show you what I got inside.
My essentials when I go out for the day include my kindle, purse,phone, make up bag, brush, deodorant, hand cream and charger. My little haul fitted in to the bag with masses of room to spare, which is handy as I always come home with more than I took out. Usually blind bags and kinder eggs for the children. I have a 15 inch laptop and it was just an inch to big to fit in, so if you have a smaller one it will fit in easily.
Miss S had a doctors appointment so I knew we would be out for a few hours when you incorporated travelling on the bus. I managed to get in a few nappies, wipes, brush, bobbles and phone. I also had her medical file in there to. There was bags of room left I could of easily fitted in around 6 of her specialist nappies and even a change of clothing.
I am really impressed with the bag, its great quality has lots of space and is ideal for a busy Mum of 4 like myself. I like that I can use it as a change bag and also as a handbag when I've not got the children. I think its definitely worth the investment as you can use for anything.
