Dear Handmade Makeup Bag: You Have My Heart This Valentine’s Day

I asked for you from Santa but it looks like Cupid answered my call instead. I couldn’t ask for any other bag to love this Valentine’s Day. Would it be too forward to say I Heart You? You hold more than just makeup, pencils, or other accessories. You hold my heart and all the love I have for you. I mean, look at you! You're amazing and durable and versatile. Since there are so many adjectives, I'll use you instead. That's right, my H-E-A-R-T, just to spell out the many ways you will change my life.

First off, you are HOMEBOUND. The second I laid eyes on you, I knew I needed to get you home to be a part of my life. Since you're a one-of-a-kind from 144 Collection, I know you'll come to me quickly! Wrapped with care and love, I'll be so excited once you get here. You'll compliment my vanity and get to be that staple in my daily routine. I can't order you fast enough!

Has anyone ever told you that you are ELEGANT? You warm my heart when I see you. With the way that you’ll match my winter outfits, I know we’ll get compliments all the time. I've never met such a simple makeup bag that could be as stylish as you. No, you’re not designer, but you were designed just for me.

Everyone’s going to want a bag as ADORABLE as you. Being a nice compact bag, you’ll fit in any overnight bag I own, for those last minute Galentine’s Day trips or for when I finally step back into an office. I love the bright pink lining that stands out against the dark canvas. I just know my work bestie is going to ask about you and I’ll be so proud to tell her you're a 144 Collection Original.

With you being made of canvas, you're always RELIABLE. You're sturdy so I’ll never worry about my essentials falling out. With a soft cotton lining, you’re built to take care of the most fragile pieces of my makeup so they don’t break when I throw you in my handbag. I know I’m in good hands with you as my go-to bag so I won’t want another. I never thought it would be so easy to find a bag like you!

With Valentine's Day around the corner, you are definitely TRENDY. The polka dot hearts all over attract anyone, from adults to kids. It’s the perfect time to take you out on a little date night. We could go looking for makeup or our favorite pens to hold. Perhaps we could go shopping for handmade handbags together, I know that’s your favorite pastime.

Would you accept my offer to be mine this Valentine’s Day? I know I won’t find any other bag that has my heart quite like you. I don’t mean to sound desperate, but I’ve got my credit card ready to order you, just say the word and I’m yours.
