Thirty-One Gifts URU Cosmetic Bag (Review & Mini Wristlet Giveaway)

MBP October Spotlight Sponsor

I am a well-traveled momma. I have been to a lot of neat places, and just got back from a quick road trip up to the NYC area a few weeks ago. Hubby and I have a long weekend beach trip planned for our anniversary, which is in just a few weeks, and we'll also be taking a family cruise in January! I don't know that the rest of 2013 will hold, but I wouldn't be surprised if we worked a few more trips in.

Presented by Dottie Brown

On my last trip, I noticed that my tired, old cosmetic bag was just not holding up, anymore. It's a nice size bag, but it's pretty ancient... my mom got it when she was a Mary Kay rep, when I was a little girl, and passed it on to me... and that's what I've been using! So, when Independent Thirty-One Gifts consultant, and MBP Spotlight Sponsor, Dottie Brown and I had conversation about what to feature for the month of October, a light bulb went off and we both had the same thought!

The URU Cosmetic Bag by Thirty-One Gifts

Dottie was kind enough to send me a beautiful Thirty-one Gifts URU Cosmetic Bag in the Pink Parisian Pop pattern. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, because with all of my upcoming travels, I will absolutely need a reliable cosmetic bag.

My URU Cosmetic Bag is in this nice box, which shipped right from Thirty-One Gifts to my door!

My cosmetic bag was individually wrapped, and came with complete product information.

This elegant, pretty and preppy bag is a must-have for any gal on the go! It's extremely roomy, and features two plastic zip pockets on each side, which are perfect for holding those essential items that may end up leaking all over your bag. This makes for easy clean up, if you do encounter a spill- just wipes clean! I love that I can keep my toiletry items on one side, and my make up items on the other side. There's room in between, for items like a hair dryer, flat iron, hair spray, hair accessories, or whatever else you may need to take with you, if you plan on being away from home overnight. It also has an exterior zip pocket, which is great for little extras like packs of tissues or wet wipes, or emergency feminine products.

Lots of room in this great cosmetic bag from Thirty-One!

Exterior pocket for extra storage space!

My test with the Thirty-One Gifts URU Cosmetic Bag, was to see just how much I could really fit in the bag, without overloading it. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was able to pack into my bag! This is going to be the perfect toiletry and cosmetic bag for us to use when we go on our cruise. We don't want to over pack, and the URU Cosmetic Bag will help us be able to pack and carry what we need, and keep it all secure while on the road, and while on the cruise ship.
