So that filled up the morning and it went so great that we were all wrapped and good to go before 2 pm! Got home (b/c as mentioned above my 2nd job was cancelled urrggh) and to my surprise there was a nice little package for me in the mail. I LOVE getting packages in the mail! I unwrapped it immediately to find the most beautiful cosmetic bag I think (actually I know) I've ever owned! A couple of wks ago I was contacted by Yolanda about reviewing one of her BEAUTIFUL handmade cosmetic pouches. The site is called This Magpie's Nest and she has a variety of gorgeous makeup pouches to choose between. Many feature old style photographs on the front w/ old postcards on the back. Really unique and eye catching! I chose the Mrs. Wright...Wishing You Were Here! As mentioned above it's handmade and measures 5X7 (very roomy), it has a zippered pouch and the postcard is printed on Muslin. The inside is lined w/ red fabric and I have to say it's all REALLY well made! Not flimsy or cheap at all! In fact I CAN'T BELIEVE she's selling these pouches for the LOW LOW price of $15/each...seriously I've seen things like this in stores for like $35 and up! Also I just want to mention how beautifully it all came wrapped and packaged...seriously it would make a perfect gift for anyone! It was wrapped in red tissue paper w/ twine wrapped around it and a Magpie's Nest tag. I noticed the package smelled so good and on further inspection when I opened the pouch I realized there was some lavender inside...what a nice touch!
Btw she is offering a 20% discount to any of my readers that mention this post when they are ordering...that means these beautiful pouches would be only $12/each...seriously that's INSANE!!!
So after that my day was complete w/ a nice trip to one of my fav. drink spots in Yorkville - The Avenue. Sipped some white wine and chatted it up w/ a friend! Great end to my great day!
