*********I love cute things.
When I realized I absolutely HAD to have a new bag of some sort for transporting my makeup when I go to NorthPointe, I started my search. It didn't take me long to come upon exactly what I need.
FOSSIL, INC., the world-famous designer and manufacturer, makes cosmetic cases in a wide selection of sizes and fabric patterns. Lo and behold, I tracked down a collection of them at the Elder-Beerman store in the Beloit Mall.
Initially, I was looking for a larger bag than is available in this line, but I had immediately fallen in love at first sight with the collection and couldn't walk away. I gathered my thoughts, did some quick thinking and acted appropriately; I bought two of the small cosmetic totes. Without pencil and paper, I had calculated: 1 small bag + 1 small bag= 1 large bag. (I've always been exceptionally good at math).
I couldn't be more tickled with my purchases. I must point out that the outer fabric of my new cosmetic cases is very durable and also that the pattern and bright colors I selected please me every time I see, touch and open them.
Of course, a more conservative consumer might argue that a heavy-duty zip lock bag would work as well, but come on now; it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.
I can't fight it. I don't want to fight it. I won't fight it. The simple truth is simply this: I get a BIG kick out of cute, LITTLE things!
