Do not travel without Tartan + Twine organizers and your SlimSonic toothbrush

If you had a dream vacation, where would you go? Hawaii? London? The Cayman Islands? Or would you go somewhere fun with your family to get away from the hustle and bustle of life?  What would you take with you on that trip – and by that you know I mean cosmetic and beauty products – the stuff that really counts?

I’m not a big traveler although I’ve certainly had some amazing vacations but when I go somewhere I need my cosmetics and my tools. A vacation wouldn’t be fun if I was empty handed. Since I don’t travel often it took me forever to use this terrific Tartan + Twine Brinton Alley Beauty Organizer which I now regret.

I’ve never enjoyed a beauty organizer as much as I do this one. It’s totally compact (only 8″ x 5″ x 2″) yet it holds a collection that a beauty junkie can appreciate. I was able to carry every cosmetic item I’d decided to take on my vacation and still had room for more. It has two pouches that are detachable, a makeup brush organizer, and a side zip pouch.

The material that the Beauty Organizer is made of is very sturdy so this is a bag that will last you for years. The quality of the construction is top notch. It’s made of coated cotton with uncoated cotton trim, the detachable pouches are made of uncoated cotton and clear PVC. While the Brinton Alley with its great red and black tartan plaid isn’t available because I am late reviewing it, they have a lot of other bags at Ulta and including this gorgeous new Waverly Vine Beauty Organizer that is spring personified.

One of the beauty tools I put in my organizer is this Violife Slim Sonic Classic toothbrush.

I get a little crazy when it comes to germs when I’m traveling so the Violife Slim Sonic is perfect for me. Not only does it come in the cutest designs for approximately $15.95 but it keeps everything sanitary. Since it closes I can even keep it in my purse without worrying about it. The Slim Sonic is a battery operated toothbrush (included) and it cleans at 22,000 brushstrokes per minute.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.

    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!
