Make Mother Daughter Memories With Caboodles

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Caboodles. All opinions are my own.

When I was a little girl I can remember countless times growing up that I would peek into my own mother's jewelry boxes. I remember marveling in wonder at her collection, which even though it was small, carried such meaning in every piece. My Mom was never one to spend large amounts of time putting her make up on every morning (she was too busy as a single Mom taking care of four children and running a daycare in her home), but when we went to see family or spent any length of time away from home, my Mom would pull out this large, orange carrying case from the 70's and pack up her makeup, lotion, and necessities.

A few weeks ago, I was helping my Mom go through some of her things in storage and happened to find this orange makeup case that I remembered so well. Instantly I was taken back to the days were I was my Mom's little girl instead of now having daughters of my own. It's amazing how something so simple as a makeup bag can carry so many memories! When I think of makeup and accessory bags, my mind instantly goes to Caboodles. My daughter Eva and I each received our very own bag from Caboodles, at no cost to facilitate this review, and I'm so excited to start making my own Mother-Daughter memories with my own sweet girl and our Caboodles!

Adorbs Mini Backpack

Eva was thrilled with this unique, stylish, and sassy Adorbs Mini Backpack! No matter the personality, Caboodles has something for everyone! With so many colors, patterns, and styles to choose from - there's no better place to look for a new little purse, bag, or backpack for your daughter this Christmas! Eva has a couple of purses that she uses from time to time, but one thing I absolutely love about this Mini Backpack (aside from it's obvious adorable appearance) is simply the fact that it's a backpack. In our house, we like to reward our kids for hard work. We also know and support the value of education. Our kids know that for the time being, going to school, working hard and doing their best is their current "job". Every good report card they bring home comes with some monetary payment for a job well done. Eva has been saving up for quite some time and she always likes to take some of the money she's earned when we head out to the mall. It's so easy for little girls to set down a purse or a wallet when a special toy catches their eye and I especially love that with this Mini Backpack, she can not only carry a few things to keep her busy in the car, but its a safe place for her to keep her money when we are out shopping.

 The Adorbs Mini Backpack provides plenty of room inside to store everything your daughter would need for an outing. Eva likes to carry a hair clip, her Ipod and headphones, wallet, lotion, and a few little trinkets. Eva is able to pull the backpack closed with the drawstring and then secure it with the Velcro on the backpack. This backpack is made of a plastic material that makes it easy to wipe clean and the straps are also adjustable to fit your daughters height and carrying preference!

  Caboodles has so many different Mini Backpacks to choose from! The Adorbs Mini Backpack pictured above can be found at most retailers including Target, Walmart, and others for the average price of $9.99! This cute bag would make the perfect stocking stuffer for your special girl this Christmas!

Envy Doctor Bag

Like most girls, my 7-year old daughter, Eva, is always looking for opportunities to try out my make up. My bathroom used to be riddled with bag after bag of my makeup - simply because I just didn't have a place to contain it all. The Envy Doctor Bag from Caboodles allows me to put all of my makeup in one place! There is space on each side to hold brushes, a mesh pocket (where I now store my microderm abrasion tool, and a smaller zipper pocket on the side. I have to say, my favorite thing about this bag, aside from how sleek it looks, is how wide it opens up! I don't have to hold it open with my hands to use the products in side. Once I zip it open, it holds its form allowing me to pull my makeup in and out with ease.

  The Envy Doctor Bag Features:
  • Zippered Top
  • Extra Wide Opening
  • Spacious Open Interior
  • Four Interior Elastic Pockets
  • Adjustable Elastic Storage Bands
  • One Zippered Interior Storage Compartment
  • Two Zippered Exterior Storage Compartments
  • Two Carrying Handles
  • 12" x 7” x 6.75”
  • Comes in black or Polka Dot

 I was excited to organize my make-up, and Eva was equally excited to help. Organizing my makeup means Eva usually gets what I no loner use as her own makeup to play with. She had a blast helping me find the best places to put my foundation, eye shadows, lip sticks, etc. I was amazed at how much I was able to fit into one bag! Our family is gearing up travel for the holidays and I'm looking forward to being able to travel with all of my make up finally in one bag!

 The Envy Doctor Bag can also be found at your local retailers (Walmart, Ulta, Meijer and more) or online on Amazon Prime for the average price of $34.99.

 After all of our organizing, Eva and I couldn't help but take a little time to play! She loved getting a "makeover" from Mom and I loved making more special memories! There's no doubt that some day, when my daughter is older, she'll probably find herself helping me go through my old things in storage and will inevitably come across this same bag, bringing back her own treasured memories of her own Mom and her days of growing up. And just like my Mom, I'll gladly give her my old bag, which holds much more than makeup - it holds years of memories and reminders of the love shared between a mother and her daughter.
