While I may be a fan of another brand of bags for use when I am being a mummy, I do however like a different style of bag for when I'm being 'me'.
Just because I like Dairy Milk, doesn't mean I don't also like Galaxy.
Get my drift?
Therefore when Mia Tui sent me one of their newer designs, the Lottie, I was very happy to test the bag out and see if it was as good as the other bags I have from their range. And I have a fair few Mia Tui bags; four Graces, two Amelies, one Sofia and one Ava at the last count.
I did say I like bags.
The Lottie is the first bag by Mia Tui that isn't designed for multi-use; this isn't one aimed at use as a gym bag, or an overnight bag, or a change bag. The Lottie is meant to be a small cross-body or shoulder bag, big enough to fit the essentials in, and great for grabbing as you're running out the door to the shops etc.
I've got a fairly hefty purse (my mother would be proud, my single friends look on in disbelief) which fits in nicely, alongside my phone (or an iPod) into the slim internal pocket, and there is space for two pens as well as the usual key fob. There isn't a bottle holder but a small bottle does fit inside. On the outside of the wipe-clean bag is a zipped pocket ideal for ladies 'bits and pieces', and the main internal section has a zip keeping the contents away from prying eyes and safe and secure.
I very much like the strong 'steel' colour of the Lottie that I was sent, I'm generally not a girly woman and Mia Tui colours are chosen to reflect women of the 21st century. The Lottie range comes in black, brown, steel blue, teal, sand, red and aubergine; definitely something for every woman.
And the best bit is that they only cost £15.00.
What are you waiting for?
I was sent this product for the purpose of this post, my opinion is honest and unbiased.
