Saw these cute pouches on pinterest and found them on amazon on sale so I bought them for my bridesmaids as little gifts and one for myself.  Perfect to hold some makeup and money.

I am having so much fun figuring out my bridesmaid gifts! I decided early on I want to get them a nice bag they can use to travel, and pack it with fun stuff. I also don't want to give them anything cheesy or too linked to my wedding, because I want them to really use the stuff again. Here's what I have so far:

 

1) J Crew canvas weekender bag. I got this on SUPER sale at the J Crew outlet - only $40 each. I figure they can use them as their carry on, or just use them in the future for weekend getaways. I would attach pics of mine but I have no idea how to do that, so here's the link.

2) Mini make up bag from Bath & Body Works. I love that these are so bright and fun! They could even work as clutches. I got one in each color.

3) Stuff to go in the mini make up bags

-- Pure Paradise mini lotion and hand sanitizer, also from BBW

-- mini Stila make up pallete from Nordstrom Rack

-- CO Bigelow lip treatments - 1 Mentha lip tint, 1 My favorite lip balm. I love love love these and they were on sale! 

 

4) Other stuff to go in the J Crew bags

-- Havaina flip flops from Nordstrom Rack 

-- travel pillow/iPad holder from Bed Bath & Beyond

 

So far, believe it or not, I've only spent $90 per bag! I want to spend about $120 - $150 each, so I'm trying to figure out what else to add. I'm considering either a passport holder, like this adorbs one from Kate Spade, or necklaces, like Dogeared or the Kate Spade initial necklace. I also could use the extra $ to pay for their hair or makeup, but I don't know how I feel about that. It's definitely less fun than buying more presents, but maybe more practical. 

 

What does everyone think?? I'm so eager for feedback, but the people I'd normally ask are the girls I'm buying for! Help!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
