I made a very important purchase recently…
Do you know who GirrlScout is?
If your answer to that is yes, GO YOU.
If your answer to that is no, NO WORRIES! Like, at – a l l : )
In a nutshell, she’s the sassiest little photo-taking firecracker you’ll come across.
Curse word advocate.
Creative beam of light.
Blue-haired babe (currently. color subject to change, often).
Go check her out (but like, yesterday mmkay.)

Anyhow, her name is Michelle, and she also has a shop.
I follow her on Instagram and saw the upcoming release of a limited edition “face shit” bag, complete with accents of hot-pink and little cacti.
Saw it and immediately thought “uhm. y e s s s 😑”…
So naturally, I ordered. Which was a wise move on my part, because that ish sold o u t t t in about 48 hrs. *thank you, me.*
So if you’ve been here for a bit, you know that we travel pretty often, and my current makeup bag situation (while pretty cute) is nowhere near ideal. It’s enormous, for one – and has a freaking handle, for two. A handle? Come on. That’s too large, lol. For me, anyway. It just isn’t the most practical thing I could be hauling my everyday arsenal of makeup in. And I have been on the lookout for a new one, I just hadn’t stumbled across anything that said “that’s the one” to me.
Mind you, I live in the desert. So the cactus theme seemed ridiculously appropriate. In addition to that, I love supporting legitimate independent businesses, and other creatives. I respect what the brand owners are doing and the messages that they put out (she and her partner both do the shop, and are frequently involved in each others photography work).
O T H E R A P P E A L S
– The actual text (haha!): I mean, you guys…if ever there was a more correctly labeled cosmetic bag than this one, I’ve never seen it.
– Size: this is a 7 x 10 – which is perfect for both your everyday haul-around, but also…FOR TRAVEL (I just tested this theory this last weekend and can safely report back..blog post coming soon).
– The design: and the fact that the design is custom drawn.
So now that you know a little about the brand, its owners, and the motives/thought behind this purchase, we can get into the goodies.
When this package came, it did not disappoint…
And there you have it. This is what being a happy customer looks like : )
Here are some links to check these guys out if you’d like (which you probably should, but I’m bias):
