Mia Tui: Ava (Competition)

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Mia Tui bags, in fact I own… <counts> five of them. Eeek! I have an Amelie and four Graces, my most prized one is the beautiful leather one although my red canvas Grace offers up stiff competition.

The fantastically versatile bags were originally designed as travel bags, but they were quickly discovered to be excellent change bags as there are so many different compartments inside to hold all the paraphenalia required with babies! As The Boy has grown, I have downsized from the Tardis-like Amelie to the more sedate Grace, which Mary Poppins would be very impressed with. I skipped the in between stage of the Ava for no reason other than I was trying to be brutal with the amount of stuff I was carrying around. However it is an excellent meeting point between the two, and an incredibly useful design with a plethora of pockets still and plenty of inside space.

Now one lucky reader of TheBoyandMe can be in with a chance of winning a stunning black Ava worth Β£49.99

Inside the Ava you will find:

  • 1Β Clear internal bags with hand strap
  • 1 Matching Clutchbag with hand strap
  • 2 Water bottle holders
  • 2 Key clips
  • Phone pocket
  • Pen holder

To be in with a chance of winning this stylish and practical bag, please fill in all entry mechanisms on the Rafflecopter form below. Incomplete entries will be deleted.

    Probably the 5 year old chewing gum – sitting at the bottom waiting to be eaten – not in it's packet or anything! Pretty gross but I must admit my handbag is a little like a black hole that never gets cleaned out πŸ™‚

  2. Tracy Nixon says

    Thanks for the giveaway! My lucky pixie keyring stays in my handbag! I have had it for 28 years and I believe it brings me luck (at times!)

  3. Michelle says

    The strangest thing in my bag is probably the three year old strepsils, or the wet wipes I have with me wherever I go!

  4. Lesley J says

    In my handbag (Amongst other things) I carry my own knife and fork with built in salt and pepper sprinkler – had it for years, and had to use it a few times – well you never know – lol! Also got a mini set of binoculars in case I spot anything interesting whilst on my travels. Then there are the tissues and tissues and tissues and tissues and…..

  5. Stephanie Boulton says

    A hematite stone for its supposed healing properties. I've had it for years even though I don't really believe in that sort of thing anymore.

  6. Johnson Babies says

    I am renowned for having dummies and rattles in my bag on nights out (you never know when a baby might need to be pacified!). I now find it bizarre that I carry make up in my bag- wear it? When?!

  7. Veronica brown says

    A whistle, have ever since i was a teenager and my dad insisted it was a great way of drawing attention if i ever needed to.

  8. says

    Ok so technically I don't have a handbag, only an ugly man-style changing bag which my husband insisted on having when I was pregnant because he insisted he didn't want to take a girly bag with him when he took the babies out on his own. It's never happened, not even once. So it's time for me to have a nice one, please?!

    Wierdest thing in there? At the moment, a load of dry wet wipes because my little girl has emptied them from the packet into the bag when I wasn't watching, because there is no zip on said bag, like there is on the lovely Mia Tui Ava πŸ™‚

  9. says

    I'm really boring as I don't have anything strange in my bag at all! Everything is normal apart from two spare door keys as I have a habit of getting locked out!

  10. Emma says

    Squeaky carrot-shaped dog toy kept for sentimental reasons. Everyone laughs and say I should get rid of it. Soon perhaps. If I'm lucky.

  11. Lorna Peppiatt says

    My business card from many moons ago when I had a 'responsible' career position, look at it often and remember those days fondly πŸ™‚

  12. jennifer thorpe says

    an odd sock that I picked up from the inlaws after the kids had a sleepover, every time I see it. I think, I'll pair it up with its other half and then forget about it πŸ™‚

  13. EMMA WALTERS says

    I have a whole collection of oddness in my handbag as it also acts as nappy bag and camera bag. The oddest thing today is a broken toy car that I was hiding from the toddler so he could forget it's broken.

  20. Heather Haigh says

    Nothing strange really unless you count a tape-meaure which I carry for checking dimensions on things like furniture I a considering buying.

  21. Helen says

    Helen searches through her handbag to find ….. a few ripped up beer mats; several weeks ago we were in a local beer garden with our granddaughter (3) and she wanted to practice writing her name; having nothing to hand we split some beermats up and she practiced on those.

  22. Sam B says

    I just had a little rummage and found 2 giant paperclips and a little pot of bubbles. I wonder how long they've been in there!

  23. Kirsty Caffrey says

    I've got a mini book that was bought for my son when he was a baby called 'I love you this much' – its in there as it reminds me of him and I cannot bring myself to take it out!

  24. says

    Right I think I navigated Rafflecopter ok…… Hmmm most bizarre thing in my handbag would have to be a whistle, attached to my work keys. A remnant from my teaching days and comes in handy sometimes when I am doing games at youth club!

  25. says

    Nothing much unusual in my bag, unless you count the fact there is some money in it at the moment – that's quite unusual for me!

  26. julie kenny says

    Piece of wallpaper in case I eventually find the right curtains and some anti-bacterial handgel.

    car keys – I dont drive but for some reason whenever we park up anywhere my husband gives me the car keys to put in my bag.

  36. Lucy Zelazowski says

    A large reddish rubber Kong dog Frisbee. I cant leave home without it, my doggy is mad for it! I'm a massive fan of Mia Tui bags. Just Gorgeous. I bet my frisbee would fit in the Ava.

  37. Alli Marshall says

    The most bizarre thing in my handbag – I still have loads of business cards from cybher lol (not my own)

  39. Hilda Hazel Wright says

    I don't know if there is anything bizarre in there. I don't often use a bag these days, I just grab purse, keys, tissues, lipbalm in pockets. I suppose keeping a selection of pills in a bank's coin bag is a bit odd, but they fit in there so well (a strip of paracetamol, ibruprofen and rennies and some plasters) and it stops them popping out of the packaging! Its like a mini first aid kit!

  45. fiona o'farrell says

    A keyring that when you press a button says random things from Carry on films, really funny in silent situations though. Press a button and you get " errre stop messing about" and it's really loud πŸ˜€

  46. Laura Pritchard says

    The most bizarre thing EVER found was a fresh cat poo (bleugh!), but usually an emergency sanitary towel!

  56. says

    Ok I just looked and really this is quite bizarre you know when you cant find a pen or a usb memory stick, well its because my bag eats them. I found 9 pens and 7 usb memory sticks, why do I even have 7 usb memory sticks? And one of them was shaped like a manta ray?!

  57. Sarah Ballantyne says

    One odd baby sock – it was stuck on my trousers one day when I got to work (dratted tumble dryer) and I stuck it in my bag. It's still in there for some reason even though the 'baby' is now 2 and a half and the matching sock went in the bin ages ago. I keep forgetting to take it out.
