Make-up Disaster

Make-up bags are just one of my many many many weaknesses...


About 5 months ago, I decided to go on a massive spree and treat myself to some / ALOT of new make-up. A ridiculous amount of money was spent, my eyes literally watered when I seen the total flash up on the till monitor. But I fought back the tears, handed over my rent money and went home happy as larry with my new treats.


Anyways... I soon found that all these new products would not fit in any of my old bags. I needed a new one which had to be original, inexpensive(ish) & big enough to fit most of the make-up I need... but not to bulky to carry around. Its not alot to ask from a make-up bag is it? It didn't take long until I came across a company called Disaster Designs who design and make unique purses, bags, notebooks and other gifts...



I instantly fell in love with their designs and after a long debate I finally settled on the Object D'Art Make-up Bag which has a beautiful, vintage style illustration and applique bows featured on the front and back. There is even a little perfume bottle attached to the zip and navy fabric with a bow pattern in the inside and it was this kind of detail that made this Make-up bag a must have for me. It is also sturdy and durable made from Faux Leather and spacious enough to carry pretty much all of my essential make-up. It is also extremely well made and 5 months on it still looks pretty much brand new. 


However it turned out to be a little too big for me to carry about day to day so I had to buy a little, boring, cheapo make-up bag from Primark to just put essentials in if I needed to touch up throughout the day. But this is the bag that I put everything I need in when I'm travelling home at the weekend. It even looks amazing just sitting on my dresser looking pretty and I've lots of compliments and questions about where I got it from.





This bag is far from a disaster in my eyes & I just wanted to share this awesome company with everyone. Their range is amazing and next time I have a little money to spare I'm going to treat myself to an overnight bag so I don't have to carry that god forsaken ugly kitbag through Belfast anymore.


I bought mine on Ebay but this website has alot more of their range of products available. http://www.campusgifts.co.uk/acatalog/Disaster_Designs.html


Let me know your thoughts on it?! I know its a little different but thats just how I roll...
