Get the Look: 30 Cute Cosmetic Cases

Last week I pulled together a collection of cute cosmetic cases, “Kiss & Make Up” in the Boston Globe. I generally like to do a travel-related roundup in the summer, and I had already done weekend bags last year.

Mostly, though, I was inspired by a particularly cute cosmetic case by Deux Luxe, that the publicist had sent me back in the winter—the Anguilla cosmetic case in jade green emblazoned with exotic birds. I love the look. Unfortunately it didn’t make it into the Globe, but I’ve included it here (#17), along with 29 other cute cosmetic case finds.

Bostonians, pay attention to #1, #9, and #18 by ultra preppy, Brookline-based design label Ame & Lulu. I’m kind of attached to #2 from Catseye London. Adorable, though maybe channels too much of a crazy cat lady vibe? There’s a doggie one as well (#21). And if you’re more of a boho girl, Target has a couple of great Coachella-worthy makeup bags (#5 and #8).

Browse through for a new one; you know yours is smeared with gunk. Me? I still use the iconic brown & white striped cosmetic bags and toiletry case from Henri Bendel, a long-ago gift from an ex boyfriend’s mom. And yeah, it’s a bit worn.

Shopping Trip: Pod

Pod is a charming home furnishings and gift shop in Brookline Village, that I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never visited IRL until last week. It’s got a great feel—sort of Brooklyn meets Japan with old wooden floors and festive Asian lanterns. A lot of the items, like the gold leaf lotus bowl, porcelain feather ornaments, Kinfolk Magazine, metallic zip pouches, and brass coffee spoons are  for sale online, so if you’re not in Boston, you can still (and should) shop.

Flowers & Gardens: Seed Bombs

With any luck, this year it will be March showers that bring May flowers. We’re on our fourth day of rain in Boston. At some point it will stop raining and warm up. Julie Baine, owner of Pod in Brookline Village sent over this fun and easy garden solution, the Seed Bomb ($7.50). Each muslin pouch contains five compressed balls of soil and compost that have been impregnated with East Coast wildflower seeds. Simply chuck it into a field, abandoned construction site, barren hill. That’s my kind of gardening.

ARTmonday: Tim Moore’s 100 Buddhas

Tonight I received an email invite to a reception for artist Tim Moore for 100 Buddhas. I couldn’t locate a website, but I now see that he had a show at Farm Gallery in Wellfleet this summer. I blogged about the gallery earlier in the season, but I totally missed Moore’s work. In any case, his Buddhas are now hanging at Pod, a small home accessories shop in Brookline Village. Looks worth checking out. There’s a reception tomorrow night, Tuesday, Feb. 2nd, 6pm to 8pm.
