GIVEAWAY: A momi ‘O Baby’ accessory bag worth R300!

This competition is closed: the winner was Mariette.

It was only when I had my third baby that I could finally afford a really gorgeous ‘baby bag’. (And they say that the youngest child only gets hand-me-downs: not true baby Oliver, you spoiled little sproglet.) So I was thrilled, right in the beginning of January, when momi baby bags got hold of me to show me their range.

One of the things I love about their brand is that that are called ‘momi bags’... because, frankly, these are bags for grown women who aren’t letting motherhood cramp their style. You want to be able to stash a couple of disposables and some formula powder in there, and probably (if you are anything like me) your phone, your purse, your make-up bag and your car keys.

This is one of the bigger bags, and you can see how well it is made.


Momi Bags is giving away an ‘O Baby’ accessory bag to give away to one of the Lionheart readers. It’s worth R300 and it is just so classy and practical. It’s the perfect size for when you quickly need to nip out to the shops, and you just take the basics with you. I love the style; it’s Chinese silk brocade.




HOW TO WIN
Simply leave me a comment below and tell me: what is the strangest thing that is in your handbag at the moment? If you like, you can also join the momi baby bags and Living Lionheart Facebook pages. 

I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday 19 March at 5pm. This competition is open to residents of South Africa only. Winner drawn randomly.

  7. have a dove`s feather, it belongs to my grandson. He and his granddad found 2 kittle lemon doves in the yard, they could not fly away because they were stuck in some threads of an old t-shirt that someone threw away. They detangled the birds and let them loose. He gave me the feather to keep and show everyone that he ``saved`` the little birdies

  17. The strangest thing in my handbag at the moment is this thing called baby vac nasal aspirator it's a strange looking thing but does the job so my son doesn't get post nasal drip where it drops back into his throat and chest then causes bronchitis. He's always got a runny nose so have to keep a extra one in my handbag for on the go .

  18. Right now there's not too much that's strange in my bag. But this one time... I'd been noticing an intense fruity smell wherever I went. I was pregnant with my first child and had one of those massive red handbags with loads of pockets that were fashionable at the time. I was at my gynaes office, waiting, as one does, and I decided to clean out my handbag. When I stuck my hand into the side pocket, I encountered cold, squishiness. My hand came out, covered in brown goo, stinking of rotten fruit. I'd forgotten a nectarine weeks ago. I don't think I ever got the smell out of that bag, but it was good practice for finding hidden rotting kid food all over my house ever since.
