Feed Your Handbag Obsession (or start one) with Mia Tui- Matilda Mae Purse Review and #Giveaway| 2014 Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mia Tui logoI was sent the following product for review purposes. All thoughts expressed are my own.

For years all this mama had by way of a purse was a diaper bag. Guess that’s what happens when you have 4 kids close together, right? I can’t tell you how excited I was to be able to start carrying a purse again. For the past few years (yes, years) I’ve had one purse. ONE. I love it, but it’s been time for a new one for a while. I mean, most women I know have far more than one purse. Purses are one of those things that you can’t have too many of.  And so I was on a mission to find a new purse and get my handbag collection started.  And then the good ol’ world wide web led me to Mia Tui.

Mia Tui bags are unique and amazing in so many ways.  It is easy to change the usage. They are water-proof inside and out (a perfect feature with 4 kids who spill all.the.time). They have multiple pockets designed with internal accessory bags so you can change the use of your bags in an instant.  They are designed with both style and practicality in mind.

Mia Tui features include:

-Co-ordinating Clutch Bag With Wrist Strap
-Clear PVC Bags With Wrist Strap
-Clips For Your Keys
-Insulated Bottle Holder
-Hands Free Extendable Shoulder Strap
-Full Zip Closure For Added Security

Mia Tui is so awesome they’ve even won awards for their unique interiors!

Matilda Mae aubergineWhen I had a chance to choose one of their bags for review I had a hard time deciding; I really love all 8 styles of their purses, but I decided I wanted something smaller than my current bag.  I loved the look of the Matilda Mae bag , but I also loved the name behind it.  This bag has been named after a very special baby “Matilda Mae”, and Mia Tui is  supporting the Lullaby Trust by donating 10% of the sales to this amazing charity.  The Lullaby Trust is an organization that provides specialist support for bereaved families, promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep and raises awareness on sudden infant death. I absolutely LOVE that Mia Tui is giving back to such a worthy cause that has touched the lives of countless families.

It was hard to chose a color for my Matilda Mae bag- all seven colors are so gorgeous- but I finally settled on aubergine, a dark purple (almost brown) color. This bag is a cross-body satchel so you can be hands free if you desire. The adjustable strap allows you to wear it long or short, so you can wear it cross body or over the shoulder depending on your needs and desires. 
Matilda Mae over shoulderIt’s made of ultra soft faux-leather and has a zip closure, as well as a zipped pocket on the back.  I am loving the zipper for many reasons, but most of all I know it’s safer to have a zip closure to prevent things from falling out and getting lost.  The zipper on the pocket has a star pull, a minor detail which adds great character; I just love it!

The Matilda Mae bag is made in ultra soft faux-leather and has a zip closure and a zipped pocket on the back.  Plus it has a gorgeous pink interior!!

-1 Matching Clutchbag with hand strap
-Key clip
-Phone pocket
-Pen holder

The Matilda Mae can easily fit a full sized ipad in the main part of the bag, or a mini iPad/Kindle in the pocket.  Even with the iPad I had room for everything else I normally put in my bag. 

ipad and moreI can see that it would easily carry a few diapers, wipes, a snack or two… Whatever you may need for a quick outing with baby.  Mia Tui even sells a travel changing mat!

Alongside the collection of handbags is a range of complimentary accessories (like the changing mat) that work across all the Mia Tui bags.  I was able to receive the compact wallet in the matching aubergine color.

This gorgeous compact wallet may look small but it offers so much more. It has 16 credit cards slots, 3 hidden pockets, zipped pocket with 2 areas for coins, 1 section for notes, a button closure, and space for a picture (I use it for my drivers license).
