Here’s to the start of a new week! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, we spent it relaxing and enjoying Columbia, while also cleaning up our old apartment. We said goodbye to our first place together, and while I’ll miss it a little bit, we do love our new home each and everyday.
For the past several weeks, I have been on the hunt for a good cosmetic bag to travel with. Several years ago my best friend gave me the perfect set for being a bridesmaid, but sadly I have worn it out and needed to replace it. I had the hardest time finding something I would love as much as my old bag, and was getting a little discouraged with the search. Everything I shopped for would be too small and defeat the purpose of packing lightly. I didn’t want to keep traveling with 3 or 4 toiletry bags. I saw on several Instagram stories the brand Cuyana, and decided to check them out; I instantly fell in love with the “Leather Travel Case Set” when browsing!
Made in Argentina, this pebbled leather set is beautiful and sturdy. The price can’t be beat, you get both of these pieces for around $110. Most single bags I found cost this much, if not more for something of this quality, and would still have not been big enough for what I needed.
The larger one is perfect for storing my facial products and toiletries, and with the rounded rectangular shape, fit nicely in my suitcase. The inside is beautifully lined and easy to wipe down with a wet cloth when needed to be cleaned.
The smaller one is a great size for my makeup; I don’t usually travel with all of my products, so this makes me pack lighter. But it holds all of my essentials which sold me on using it as my makeup bag. I also have limited storage in my bathroom, these display beautifully and hold what I need each morning.
I am excited to say my search is over, it was getting overwhelming with styles, colors, and function. But now I have the bags that fit all three! Hopefully this will help you, or make a great gift for you mom, sister, or friend. They come in a variety of colors, this one is pearl grey, to choose from. My particular color is sold out right now, but with the selection you will definitely find one that matches your tastes. This will become you new favorite travel accessory, something that is functional and very classy!
