**This post is in partnership with ERA81, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I received the toiletry bag complimentary from ERA81.
Where I put on makeup and where I keep my makeup are not one and the same. At least once a year, I also travel to Colombia for a couple of weeks. Figuring out the best place to carry my makeup has always been a struggle. I had a bag from Target but it was so inconvenient, and I ended up leaving it in Colombia the last time it was there. I was so excited when ERA81 reached out and said they were interested in working with me. Keep reading to find out how I am liking the bag!
If you’ve never heard of ERA81, they are a San Francisco based company. Their target audience are professionals living in a fast-paced world. They want to make products that look good, but that are also practical and functional. Made with vegetable tanned leather and waterproof lining, these bags are so stylish. If you want to learn more about the materials and care instructions, you can find them here. Their current lineup includes wallets, toiletry bags, laptop sleeves, laptop bag, passport covers, camera straps, planner stash bags, and travel wallets.
They sent me the small toiletry bag in black. The perfect travel bag for the girl on the go. This bag is available in two sizes, travel and home, and currently available in black and navy. The leather has a waterproof lining, it is big enough to store all your essentials. From makeup to skincare, it can also serve as a great gift for your boyfriend or father, as it can also serve as a shaving bag. With only one zipper, the bag opens up to show four open flex pockets, one detachable zippered pouch, and one full-length open flex pocket.
I love using the detachable pocket in the toiletry bag to store my makeup brushes. They fit perfectly! And that way I can keep them all contained. I usually store my makeup in the full-length pocket, and my skincare in the four upper pockets. The bag also comes with a padded hand handle which makes it so easy to carry!
Overall, I love how sturdy the toiletry bag feels. I am sometimes afraid that my products will be unprotected when I travel with them, but I don’t feel that way about this bag. I also love that the products don’t get shaken up and there are multiple compartments to keep everything organized. The lovely people at ERA81 were also kind enough to monogram my bag with “MARIIA” (which is part of my Instagram handle). That was such a special touch and it makes me love my bag even more. You can add this to any of their products!
