{kiwi embroidery} review + discount + giveaway

Remember Snuggle Time Embroidery? Well, Mandi (owner, along with her hubby Josh), has another online-boutique! Kiwi Embroidery offers a selection of non-baby related items that are personalized :) Mandi sent me one of her cosmetic bags & handkerchief. I had my monogram embroidered on the cosmetic bag & for the handkerchief: my aunt's new monogram (since she just got married). Both were packaged so cutely too!

(I didn't open up the handkerchief since I'm giving it has a gift)

Let me just say that the cosmetic bag is so much bigger than I thought it would be! (which is great!) And, the side has a thick handle too...

The inside is lined in a water-proof, vinyl-like material - so spills/leaks & such are no problem. There is also a large pocket on one side - which can fit a large comb (and even a graphing calculator!)

As you can see: this bag can hold so much! On the left, I've loaded it up with toiletries, including two full-size bottle of lotions. On the right, you can see how this cosmetic bag can become a terrific storage device for school supplies! And yes, that is a graphing calculator in the pocket! ... not to mention there is still tons of space left to fill!

With school starting up soon, this would work great to keep in your child's backpack with all their pencils, pens, notepads, etc. Or, keep in your locker! A name, initials, or monogram can (of course!) be added to the bag at no extra cost.

Discount! Mandi is offering a great discount!! Enter code: EtsyItUp for 10% off your order! (no expiration)

Portions of the sales from Kiwi Embroidery are donated to such charities as: the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The USO, Boston Shriners Hospital for Children, and Project Bread. :)
