Staying at Chris house twice a week means I end up carrying things back and forth a lot including my makeup. Until recently I had just chucked it all into the bottom of my handbag (leading to make up covered keys and my brush bristles going the wrong way) which was far from ideal. I had been looking for the perfect size for day makeup use for a while and when Hayley (from London Beauty Queen) ran her competition with SewLomax for a bag I was shocked to have won. 

I can't believe the difference it has made. No more broken product, fretting over losing my mascara and smooth brushes. 

It's just the right size to fit everything I need but not be too big in my bag, has the best zip I have ever had (just the right amount of stiff) and best if all its so cute. The embroidery is perfect (I love red lipstick) and I love the cotton reel logo on the back. 

I honestly feel like this was made for me in mind- I mean the raspberry colour fits so well with my hair (although I love EVERYTHING and seriously feel like I NEED a pencil case for uni).

I feel like this is a step towards more beauty related posts for me- something I don't really do for the simple reason is I like to really test a product. Unless it's love at first application (lipsticks) beauty is something I really test especially when it comes to my hair. Such as this bag which I've actually had fir about a month :)

Plus I need to practice my product shots. I'm surprised these actually take longer than outfit photos- I tipped my make up out 7 times to get the "casual just fell like this look" then gave up. I have seriously poor photography skills.

P.S. I just realised how smudged my products are- at least I can prove I really road teat my things. 


  1. Congratulations, you won such a cute cosmetic bag, so nice! I think I never won anything - it's just what people say "I never won anything". Not as a giveway. I got in another way (like, best email about a band) and occasion. I was a bit absent, also from my blog, because I had a long trip and got food poisoned during the first week! Now I'm OK and back to the blogosphere! Hope you have a great week and enjoy the nice bag!

  2. Aaaw, that's an adorable little bag! Yeah, I am ashamed of just shoving things in my purse lol, usually just lipstick though. And then I leave it in the car and it melts and ohhh no...

  3. Oh my word, this little pouch is just the cutest thing ever! It's definitely a handy thing to have for those stray little makeup bits :)

  4. My make-up gets carried around in an old plastic bag from H&M, it is a disgrace really, I need a cute little make up bag like this one.
    Congratulations on the win!
