Get Rid of the Cosmetic Clutter with Trendy Bags from SewFlo! #review and #giveaway US 11/23

Living in a multi-family home that is populated in large part by women can't be easy for my brothers and Father. We all know the sometimes spartan lifestyle that men lead so when I've just been in the bathroom for the better part of 2 hours fighting with my hair and doing my makeup I know it has to be hard on them to come in after me and face the disaster area that awaits them. I know exactly what they see as they walk into the room because I grew up seeing it with my sisters: half a dozen makeup brushes of all shapes and sizes, various shades of lipstick, glittery residue smeared from one end of the counter top to the next and multiple, dubious looking bottles of hair product. That's on a good day. Can you imagine what it must look like on a bad day?

Up until last week I was keeping all of my makeup products in, I kid you not, a Publix shopping bag. If I'm not fishing around at the bottom of my purse/diaper bag for my eyeliner then I'm swiping around blindly in a large, plastic, grocery bag for my concealer. It has caused me no small measure of frustration for months but I'm happy to say that for this years Gift Guide I was given the opportunity to work with SewFlo, a family run business that specializes in handmade items ranging from coin purses, cosmetic bags, storage totes and drawstring packs.

I was sent this adorable Coffee Cosmetic bag for review and am happy to say that my mess of cosmetics have made themselves right at home. Seriously though, just look at how adorbs that coffee print is!

It never occurred to me that with as many different brushes, lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows, primers and other miscellaneous cosmetics as I've picked up over the last 7 or so months (remember I'm a self-proclaimed tomboy who has only very recently begun to enjoy looking pretty) that I wouldn't be able to fit it all in my new Coffee bag. As I looked upon  my collection however I was a little dejected as I realized just how much stuff I actually had. Still, I was determined to try and fit it all and surprisingly enough as I began storing my cosmetics away in it, to satisfy my own curiosity, I realized there was more than enough room to store everything I needed AND as a bonus it was still small enough to fit inside my purse/diaper bag for on-the-go use!

This particular bag measures in at 5.5" high, 2"x7" wide at the base and 8.5" at the opening. 

Easy to clean (should you get a smudge or two) sturdily made for holding all of your essentials and with an easy pull zipper that doesn't catch when opening or closing this cosmetic bag from SewFlo is now among my list of must have accessories. It's a fantastic, must-have, stocking stuffer for teens and for her and is a great addition to this year's Holiday Gift Guide!
