Last Friday we did a DIY Makeup Pouch on #NationalHandbagDay with Josie Maran and Risa from Hello Giggles. They came to our showroom and while Josie was intensely getting questioned with Risa's 'Inconvenient Interview' she was still doing a great job making the bag. 2NHD

What we learned is that Josie can kinda do it all. She is a mother of two, a successful entrepreneur (with her own cosmetics line run with her husband/photographer), model, actress and lady of many skills. We love that her Josie Maran Cosmetics has the mission of 'Luxury with a Conscience' and she is so passionate about giving back and empowering others. So. Inspired.


We stayed with her ethos and picked out recycled leathers and a natural eco-friendly cork fabric to create this DIY makeup bag. The final product came out great and was the perfect fit for all her JM cosmetics. Stay tuned for Risa & Josies Inconvenient Interview so you can watch the DIY action and also get some good laughs. These two are hilarious and we had a great time with this special project on National Handbag Day!
