The other day while strolling through Woolies I found these gorgeous little kiddies lunch boxes covered in polka dots and colourful stripes. So I thought to myself: "Gee, that’s nice” and then I bought one.

It was only when I got home that I realized that I don’t really need a bright and colourful lunch box. Oopsie – there goes that impulse swiping of mine again.

It’s ok though, because while I don’t need a bright and colourful lunch box, I do however need a bright and colourful place to store my make-up.

Now, as most of you may know, I'm not the hugest fan of make-up and the little goodies I do have are usually banished to the back of the toiletry cupboard in a very feeble little zip-up bag. Yet after a recent trip to Benefit in London, and a conscious effort to have more fun with the stuff,  I feel it only fitting that my once minimal stash now deserve to be brought forward to the front of the cupboard - in all their bright and colourful glory!

Once a lunch box

No longer a lunch box


And, I might add, a normal person toiletry bag goes for anything between R150 and R450. Unless of course you shop in the food section at Woolworths, where you can pick one up for R27.95.

  1. Why are you so clever?! I bought the same little lunchbox, and I just LOVE it! But now it can come in handy for more than just yummy food... x
