My beautiful new make-up bag...
It's actually a little sad how much I enjoy my new little make-up bag.
Mint, floral, and super organised, tell me what's not to love, ladies?!
After spying it over on Vivianna Does Make-up a few weeks back, and feeling utterly ashamed of my somewhat revolting old excuse for a make-up bag, I decided to hunt this beautiful Paul & Joe make-up bag down while we were in the beauty hall at Selfridges.
Somehow, a shopping trip intended for baby hat purchasing ended up in the beauty hall... don't judge me!
Although finding the Paul & Joe counter proved to be a somewhat stressful experience on a packed Saturday afternoon, let me tell you it was well worth it.
You know when you're a kid, and at the beginning of each term at school you get all excited about getting a new pencil case and filling it up with new stationary? (Someone please tell me I'm not the only one?!) Well, this is like the 'grown-up' version of that feeling, Vivianna definitely got it right when she described this as the 'filofax' of make-up bags.
I've been looking for a new make-up bag for SO long now, and I'm just the pickiest lady in the world so have been putting up with my old one until I found the perfect replacement.
I love this SO much I actually cleaned up all my make-up and brushes before putting them all in... haha
The best thing about this gorgeous little bag, apart from it's pretty-ness is the organisation.
It has two removable pouches inside, one of which is see-through for quick access to those items you use most. I love the little pockets at the back for your brushes so they don't get damaged, a super important feature in my eyes, and rare to find in a make up bag.
I can't believe I've managed to blab on for so long about this...
Have you ever shopped in Paul and Joe? What's your make-up bag of choice?
