Just when I thought Bag of Love had exhausted all possible subscription surprises, a little notification popped up in my Facebook feed a few weeks ago alerting me to a mammoth release of Bag of Love surprise editions; aptly named Happy Bags!
I think SURPRISE is Bag of Love Founder, Mi Mi Teh’s middle name.
Mi Mi ‘SURPRISE’ Teh. No kidding!
The lovely founder of Bag of Love single-handedly keeps me on my toes and has me committed to a life of hard labour. Yes, I’m staying employed because I can’t leave my job when I need more money to buy more bags.
I feel like the Bag Lady version of Gollum – come to me, my preciousssss!
Anyway, the Happy Bags were the sort of beauty news that causes beauty fan girls around The Valley to either faint from over excitement or scramble for their online cash in panic. I effectively managed both but I am proud to say that I have fine tuned online shopping to an art and can do it with my eyes closed and this release was (excuse the pun) in the bag!
Anyway, what these Happy Bags did was put the special back into Special Edition.
As of publishing this, most if not all of these bags are now completely SOLD OUT so if you didn’t manage to grab one then that’s that until Bag of Love manages to hatch up another batch of covet-frenzy lovelies.
Picking just one of these bags to buy was an exercise in tremendous self-restraint as I could have easily lived happily ever after with all of them but because budget prevailed, I rather grudgingly limited myself to buying only one.
This post is just me re-living the lovely experience of Bag of Love’s very impressive Happy Bag release and wishing that I could have done the Pokemon thing and grabbed them all.
Can you guess which Happy Bag caught my eye when it came to the crunch?
Honestly, with Mi Mi running wild in this town with her Bag of Love beauty subscription, my purse is never going to get fat or take a holiday.
I find that I am hopelessly on auto-alert for her next amazing Bag of Love announcement and this time she did not disappoint. I only wish I had more notice so I could have readied my coffers to buy up more but I’m still extremely pleased with my lone purchase.
For RM169.90, a girl doesn’t get very far at the Guerlain counters around the world so this bag is pure steal!
I tested the eye pencil and it’s so smooth and sexy and a completely indulgent colour from my usual black.
Really, these moneyed brands do produce formulas of a quality that brings a grown woman to her knees because this lovely gossamer shade slides on like room temperature butter and just feels well, expensive!
Now, before I go and frolic with my new Guerlain kit, I really wished you could have seen all the other Happy Bags and I don’t want the fact that I couldn’t afford them all stop you from finding out the contents of the other bags.
So, for yours and posterity’s sake, I hope that Bag of Love is alright with me re-posting the official images of all the wonderful choices available that day.
The photo credits of all the images below go entirely to the pros at CHLei Photography and Bag of Love.
Did you manage to snap up one of Bag of Love’s limited edition Happy Bags? I’d love to hear all about it.
If you didn’t get one but would have liked one, which bag would have been your Muse?
RM39.90 regular bags are now only available bi-monthly to Peninsular Malaysia ( add RM8 for shipping to East Malaysia)
