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, zip up and fit under the seat in front.
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 Travel13 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.
