Odds & Ends: What's in my makeup bag?


I haven't had a cosmetic bag before this in forever. It got to the point where I just put all my makeup, including the stuff I hardly ever use, in a small plastic storage tote that I took everywhere. It was heavy, messy, and a pain to transport. In high school I noticed the obvious Vera Bradley breakout among students, and I was repulsed. I wondered if people were that set on staying on trend, even if it meant spending a ton of money on something that looked like an old bag lady would carry. Pretty harsh, but that was my first opinion. It wasn't until I saw a pattern that I actually really liked, that I almost gave in. Then, I saw the clearance sticker. Sold. I won't be decked out in a matching purse, wallet, flip flops, and lanyard anytime soon, but I have to say I love this bag. It forced me to cut my carrying amount down to what I use on a regular basis. Also the inside is lined with plastic, so when the inevitable spill happens, it's easy to clean. I still hope to cover more beauty topics here soon, including organization. I've yet to conquer that battle...xoKatie
