My brother just got married on June 19th. His bride, Missy, is a really sweet gal, so I wanted to be able to do something nice for her.
I received the opportunity to review an item from Partease, an online retailer specializing in wedding favors, bridal shower favors, personalized party favors, and more. Partease.com helps you spell parties with ease!
There are MANY gorgeous items on the Partease site, including:
These Mod Dots Black and White Photo Coaster Favors…
These Cherry Blossom Silk Fans…
And these Cosmopolitan Monogrammed 5-piece Manicure Sets.
After browsing the site for quite a while, I chose The Cosmopolitan Monogrammed Cosmetic Travel Bag for review.
The bag measures approximately 8.5″ long by 5.75″ tall and 5″ deep. It is black polyester with pink satin piping and criss-cross embroidery. The zipper goes almost all the way around the bag, making it easy to pack full of things. The embroidered monogram letter actually snaps in place, so it can easily be removed and a different one applied. I got the letter “S” for Missy’s, since her new last name will begin with an “S.”
What I thought…
This bag is super cute. I decided to make a “bridal emergency kit” for Missy for the BIG day. I included a cosmetic bag, toiletries, two-sided tape, tooth pick floss, hand wipes, Shout wipes, toothpaste, nail clippers, a hairbrush, and much much more. The bag held it all AND zipped closed easily! It is well constructed, the seams are finished, and no fraying was noted. The snap for the monogram was sturdy and held the monogram in place well.
Missy absolutely LOVED the “bridal emergency kit” and the bag!
What I would change…
I’ve gone back and forth about whether or not I would change the fact that the monogram can be removed. On the one hand, it makes it nice if you don’t want to have the monogram there all the time. On the other hand, what if it fell off when traveling or something. But, even if it did fall off, it could easily be replaced.
How I rate it:
Lady V dZine gives the Cosmopolitan Monogrammed Cosmetic Travel Bag from Partease a fun five out of five hearts.
