If you are a child of the 80's, then you probably remember what a fanny pack is. If you are like me, then you probably proudly toted one around, feeling rather stylish. Face it, fanny packs were beyond convenient! I had a purple one when I was younger, and my family went on a trip to Disneyland. My fanny pack came in handy because I never lost it, nor had the slightest worry about it getting stolen. My money and my chap stick were safe and sound when I went on all those exciting rides.
Fast forward- in my high school days, you would not have caught me dead with a fanny pack. At that time of my life, only nerds wore them, and I was not about to look uncool! So, needless to say, I hung up my fanny pack indefinitely, and did end up losing it. I ended up losing many wallets and purses because I was just too 'cool' to be seen with a fanny pack.
And then, I became a Mommy. I found myself WISHING that fanny packs were still a thing because it was so hard to carry around a purse, a diaper bag, and a squirming baby. How was I going to keep track of my car keys, wallet, lip gloss AND my those ever vanishing binkis? How convenient would that have been to have everything neatly packed away in a nice little fanny pack nestled snugly on my hip.
Now, my children are mostly grown, and I want to be one of those "cool moms." I still have one more child at home, and my days are not as crazy. However, I am not any more organized now than I was with three active little ones demanding my sanity. Cool moms use fanny packs! I promise, they DO!
I cannot stand carrying around purses when I go walking, running errands, or traveling. Purses are way too bulky, and they get in the way. I need a place to keep my essentials, such as my keys, cash, debit card, cell phone, a mirror, facial powder (because I get oily) AND my lipstick. I cannot leave home without those things at any given time!
I have found that the best place to find a great variety of really cool fanny packs is at fanny Factory. At Fanny Factory, they're reclaiming the fanny pack by taking its best features and making them better. And then punching up the style factor with awesome trendy patterns and prints.
I love my Tropi-Cool fanny pack! It features a small zipped pocket on the front and back, a large main compartment with a smaller zipped interior pocket, PLUS a hidden pocket under the top flap for discreet items. I can even carry tampons in it!

My oldest son just got married a few weeks ago. His wedding was on the beach in Hawaii. That trip was not just a vacation, I had to look amazing. After all, I am the mother of the groom, and there were many photos taken. Therefore, I had to bring many, many beauty supplies, which included: all of my makeup, shampoos, conditioners, curling irons, body lotions, facial care and hairspray, just to name a few.
Having any of these items spill in my suitcase was a huge fear of mine. Thankfully, I discovered the MelodySusie® Hanging Waterproof Toiletry Bag, which helped to keep my beauty products and toiletries organized and easy to find.
It is so hard to get ready in a hotel bathroom without much counter top space on which to place all of my beauty supplies. I was so thankful that my MelodySusie® Hanging Waterproof Toiletry Bag could hang on the back of the hotel bathroom door!
It made everything so much easier for me when I was getting ready for the big day, plus, I always knew right where everything was, including my razors, toothbrush and even my vitamins! Below is a peek into my bag, but what you see is not even half of what I was able to fit into this amazing toiletry bag. It has so many pockets and places to store everything!

I am excited to share with you the NEW London SOHO New York collection of beauty bags and makeup brushes inspired by Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Be the Belle of the ball and style like a princess with this enchanted line which is available now exclusively at Walgreens.
Check out these adorable bags:
Belle Enchanted Eyes Brush Set (3 piece)
Medium Fluff Brush – Short round shape creates depth and detail.
Large Fluff Brush – Soft, fluffy bristles allow shadow to glide across eyelids with ease.
Flat Angled Liner Brush – Angled shape creates flawless lines and can be used with powder, gel or cream liner.
Material: Nylon bristles
My thoughts: I will never cease being a fan of Beauty and the Beast or any of the Disney Princesses. My daughters love them too, and when I was sent samples of these NEW from London SOHO New York products, my daughters kind of went crazy and took them from me. I love my girls, so that was perfectly fine with me. It was actually kind of cute to see my grown up daughters (ages 17 and 19) fighting for these Disney makeup bags and makeup brushes. Both girls have travel plans this summer, so the bags will definitely come in handy. These darling bags are very durable, high quality bags.
The makeup brushes are of high quality as well, and have the stamp of approval from my daughters as being perfect for applying their makeup. Now if only they would learn to share!
