Wedding Work: Bridesmaid Gifts

With 10 days left until the big day, I decided to finish up my bridesmaid gifts!
Goodies and bags!
J even got in on the action! 
I think the finished products turned out really nicely! The bags are tiny nylon carry-all's from Thirty-One and were the perfect size for all of the goodies I picked out. Today I found some great deals at Bath & Body Works and found a mini candle, aromatherapy lotion, and hand sanitizer--all in our green and orange colors--to fill the bags. I also included the jewelry they are wearing for the wedding from Cinderella's Pumpkin. Cleverly attached with a picture holder are personalized notes for each of the girls. One more thing to check off the list! 

What are your ideas for bridal party gifts??

Travel Tote and Farewell Florida

*Insert lame excuse for blogging hiatus here*

The last few days have been a whirlwind of packing, moving, traveling, and wedding plans. With that said, I wanted to share my travel toiletries bag with you. 
 I got this bag from a friend at my bridal shower and I LOVE it!! It's a white cotton waffle weave pattern, and has a waterproof lining on the inside. I'm not sure of the exact measurements, but it fits everything! 
I have a full-size deodorant and toothpaste in here, an eye cream, foundation, powder, a comb, some perfume samples, hair ties, bobby pins, and extra razor cartridges. There's plenty of room for more; it also held my toothbrush, miniature shampoo and shower gel but those were in the shower when I took the picture!
I love how well this bag holds it's shape and how easy it is to pack. My only worry is that I will get it dirty because it's white all over!

What's in your travel toiletries bag??
