Bags, bags and more bags! It’s a festival of fabulous bags! Bags for my every need! That’s how I feel as I look through the Namaste collection. I have discovered the most chic makeup bags and the cutest bags ever for carrying and traveling with all of my skin care and makeup products. I was introduced to Namaste in the goodie bag that was given to me at a party at my friend Leslie Sarna’s house (check out Leslie’s amazing site). As I previously wrote: The actual goodie bag that was filled with all sorts of fabulous treats was a Namaste Reusable Grocery Tote. Namaste also added their own goodie, their Small Pouch, to every gift bag/tote. I love the Namaste Small Pouches. They are all super cute, great colors and patterns, and my Small Pouch happens to be the new home for my favorite lip glosses. My list of lip “favorites” is growing by the day and was in need of it’s own pouch in my purse. So, that’s what I’m using mine for. The Namaste Small Pouch is the perfect size pouch to use as a small makeup bag to keep in your purse.
After I fell in love with the Namaste Small Pouches, I got in touch with Namaste to see if they had any other bags that I could keep my skin care and makeup products in. That’s when I found the Oh Snap! pouches. The Oh Snap! mesh pouches come in three different sizes (sold in a set) and are available in three different colors (light pink, red, and charcoal gray). They’re sturdy, easy to clean, and are perfect for traveling. I like to separate my skin care and makeup products, and other girlie stuff, in different bags when I travel. Here’s something great to know (and another reason to buy a Namaste bag): Namaste is partnered with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and donates 10% of the sale of each light pink Namaste product all year long. Love that! Not only do the Oh Snap! pouches come in light pink, but Namaste’s Buddy Case also comes in light pink (among other beautiful colors). The Buddy Case is a small, chic little case, that’s perfect for carrying small items. It has hidden magnetized interior walls to keep your metal items in place and a removable interior divider. I like to carry my jewelry in it. When I packed my suitcase a couple of weeks ago, I used three Oh Snap! pouches and a Buddy Case. In the largest Oh Snap! I carried my skin care products, in the medium Oh Snap! I carried my makeup, and in the small Oh Snap! I carried Q-tips, cotton pads and other cotton “girlie products”. I used the Buddy Case for my bracelets and necklaces. Of course, all of these bags/pouches are also great for daily use in your purse. You can make it super easy on yourself and use an Oh Snap! for your makeup bag, then snap that baby up when you’re done and just throw it in your purse for your touchups later on in the day. Clearly, all of these bags and pouches can be used to carry anything you’d like. My mind just happens to always go directly to my skin care and makeup products.
If you want to be super chic and carry your makeup in style…I also like the Skinny Mini. All of the Namaste bags are animal-friendly and their animal-friendly faux leather is absolutely beautiful. I have to add that I also love the Namaste handbag and tote collection. My personal favorites are the Mini Messenger, the Monroe, and the Hermosa. Love, love, love! Bags for my every need! I love their colors, I love the different styles, I love the attitude of the company and I LOVE carrying their bags. It’s all about Namaste!
On a side note: Namaste has a few different meanings and interpretations. Namaste is the recognition of one’s existence by another person. My favorite interpretation of namaste is “the spirit in me respects the spirit in you”.
