One of the many things that I’ve instantly been able to enjoy since starting my site is getting to meet great people. It reminds me of my *NSYNC days – while out at their many concerts and events I met the best people and we bonded over *NSYNC (did I just say that out loud?). There was just an understanding between all of us, a camaraderie. Now, (that I’m older and more mature) I have my makeup and skin care to obsess over. They are my new *NSYNC.
One of those people who I’ve been privileged to meet is Tanja from Sweet T Original. Tanja is the brains and the creator behind these fabulous handmade makeup bags, tote bags and wristlets. She’s a girl after my own heart – she started her company out of a love for makeup, an obsession for lip balms, and, of course, a passion for sewing.
I was lucky enough to receive her “Tribal Bag” (pictured to the left). It’s made out of bold, bright and fun fabric by the Finish company Marimekko with a delightful, shiny, yellow satin lining. The tribal bag big enough to hold all of your makeup essentials, but small enough to fit in your purse. Check out some of my other favorites in Tanja’s line – the Antoinette wristlet, the Mon Cheri III makeup bag, and the Tattoo wristlet. Tanja’s bags are really a must have for the cosmopolitan, trend-setting woman. The Beauty Bug will be heading to NY tomorrow with her Tribal bag in had spreading the “Sweet T” word. Check out Tanja’s entire collection, and tell her the Beauty Bug sent you.
