Beauty to go.

makeupbags.jpgRecently, I mentioned how disorganized my makeup collection was and I did get around to cleaning up and putting things in order. In the process, I noticed I had a lot of throw-aways in there like old products, crumbled shadows and free samples I will NEVER use (I’m not a fan of purple lipstick on fair skin.) I also realized that my cosmetic bags are in a sad state of overuse. I try to have at least one good large organizer for travel and a small one for stashing in my handbag in case I need extra backup when I’m out. Unless you’re my husband, you will never see me without lipstick on and that’s a promise! So for me, it’s time to buy some new cosmetic cases. Sephora has some good choices for travel bags, like the Essential Travel Cosmetic Case. It is made with durable nylon and has 3 zipper pockets, 2 side pockets, 1 large slide pocket, a roomy interior and a hook for hanging if needed.  For everyday use, I could just go to Target or Ulta and get a cute inexpensive makeup bag and I just might. But….I found these makeup bags at Kate Spade and I am now obsessed with them. One: they’re green and I LOVE green. Two: they have a bobby pin pattern on them, so cute! Three: the fabric is sealed so no stains, that means they’ll last and are worth the extra $. Four: Kate Spade is one of my addictions, I can’t help myself! Okay, now that I got that off my chest, I am convinced I must have these cosmetic bags and hopefully this well thought out decision will seem rational to my husband as well. We share our money so we consider each other’s opinion with unnecessary very needed splurges, we’ll see how it goes!

    That is one thing I hate about travelling…having to lug all your junk around

    I know! When I was coming back from Paris, I used one suitcase for all my dirty clothes and just threw them in there. Of course that is the one bag the airport decides to search! How embarassing!
