It's been almost a week since Charlotte picked up the award for the Best Changing Bag once again at this year's Mother & Baby Magazine awards night.
It's not the first time Charlotte has won this award, in fact, it's the 5th time and the 4th consecutive year that Mia Tui changing bags have won!
For the last few years, the awards ceremony has been held at the Westminster Park Plaza overlooking the Thames and the Houses of Parliament. It's a stunning backdrop and the Hotel is wonderful. Every year, there is a stunning Christmas display in the foyer which really sets the scene for a fabulous evening.
This year, we arrived at the Hotel in time for a light lunch and an afternoon of pampering! It was our Christmas treat and we had both been looking forward to a little downtime prior to the awards evening.
We had a wonderful afternoon and I have to say, Charlotte must have been very relaxed as her laptop was nowhere to be seen (even though it was with her!) So relaxed in fact that we suddenly realised that time was getting on and we really should be getting ready for the awards dinner.
Charlotte wore a beautiful LBD and to compliment her look, she chose a Silver Rebecca. Rebecca really is such a stunning bag, it works perfectly for day or evening wear with the choice of strap length to carry you through any occasion, day or evening.
When we got downstairs, there was just enough time to do a quick FB Live and we had many of you watching and wishing us luck for the awards. We went on to the Ballroom where the awards are held, there are 37 awards so as you can imagine, it is a fairly long evening. We had a great host the actress Sally Philips who some of you may know from Miranda and Bridget Jones Diary. She really kept the room in great spirits all evening with lots of laughter.
The award for Best Changing Bag was fairly late on in the evening, in fact, award 35! But with good company and great food, the evening flew by. Soon it was approaching the time for our category.
Even though Charlotte has won previously, it doesn't get any easier waiting for the Gold Award Winner to be announced. We were a little thrown when it appeared that the winner had previously won the award twice .... Charlotte has in fact one 4 times before! But then Sally announced the Gold Award was for the Jennie and we realised it was, in fact, Mia Tui. Charlotte had picked up the award for the 5th time!
Charlotte was absolutely thrilled and a little shocked to have won once again! After accepting the award, Charlotte was whisked off to film a short video for Mother & Baby about what winning the Mother and Baby Award means to the brand and to her customers, how it gives parents trust in a product at what really can be an overwhelming time with so many new products to choose from and buy.
If you aren't familiar with the Mia Tui range of Changing Bags, have a look here at the collection. They make amazing gifts for expectant parents and with Christmas fast approaching and a celebratory 20% off using code MBA20 off until 11th December 2019 it's a great time to buy for yourself or as a gift.
I am sure you will all join me in congratulating Charlotte and the team on the win once again this year.
