Little Black Bag - June (#2)

I already posted my first bag for June from Little Black Bag. Here's the 2nd! If you don't know what Little Black Bag is, you can learn more about it in my post about my first bag.

I started out with an extra item in this bag from Klout, so I was able to get the main item I had my eye on plus several smaller ones!

As usual, my mail people managed to dent up my box, but Little Black Bag is great about packaging things securely, so nothing arrived damaged!

Before I could even look at my other items, I had to pull this one out. This bag caught my eye immediately and I absolutely HAD to have it. It came with a nice dust bag, which I appreciate - I love switching up my bags regularly, so it's nice to have these for storage.

This is the Melie Bianco fold over satchel and I LOVE IT. Oh my gosh. It feels buttery soft, it's really great quality. I adore all the little details, especially the little lock and the belt details. It's hard to photograph the color properly - it's a great gray color, slightly more warm toned than cool. 

It's the perfect size - smaller than a messenger bag, but has a ton of space. It's larger than it looks in the photo.

I am really impressed with the quality of this. It's my first Melie Bianco bag, and I am now interested in trying more.

I love the interior! The inside flap has a suede feel to it. The polka dot lining is adorable! The interior is divided into two large sections with a zipper section in the middle.  It also has the standard zipper and cell phone pockets.

The bag has a nice crossbody/shoulder strap included.

I also got my hands on two more Cargo quads! I got one in my last haul and adore it. These are huge and the packaging is just gorgeous. I'm determined to collect them all.

I received Baja and Tahiti. Baja is the perfect neutral palette for my pale skin with pink undertones. I have used it nearly every day this week. The light pink shade is gorgeous, as expected, and I was pleasantly surprised by the pretty peach shade - in the photos, it looked more orangey. The browns are pretty and subtle and great for the crease.

Tahiti is so much fun! I love greens and blues, so I lusted over this one for a while. The light gold/green color is my favorite in this one, and all four shades look gorgeous together. I can't wait to play with this one more!

This is my first Cargo lip gloss. I got the shade Nassau. It's a nice, subtle color with some shimmer. It goes on sheer, shiny, and not at all sticky. It has a nice scent to it! I love the small size for my purse.

I also completed my Lavanila rollerball collection with this one - Vanilla Grapefruit. Such a unique and lovely scent. 

The next three items are a little different. I am a renter, so my interior design options are limited when it comes to jazzing up the walls. I'm also moving in the near future, and I've been trying to think of ways to liven up my bedroom. LBB offered several wall decals this month, and I was excited to snatch some up!

 I love these vanity mirrors. There are three of them in varying sizes. The design is so pretty and will look great with my damask and vaguely parisian thing I've had going lately.

These are decals, as well. The first is a huge tree with birds. I can't wait to see how this looks on the wall. I love trees and nature themes, and I love the size of it. The second pictured is actually a chalkboard decal in the shape of a scroll! I'm excited to use this to jot down reminders to myself.

And finally, I completed my Ali Khan ring collection with this stone accent ring. This is so pretty in person, and so sparkly! It's another stretch ring, and it's nice and big and bold.

Love it! All four of the Ali Khan pieces I got this month are great quality and super pretty. I fully intend to get my hands on more.

So, here is everything I got between my two Little Black Bags this month! I love this site so much, and I really appreciate the variety! For just a bit over $100 this month, I got an amazing bag, three home decor items, six pieces of gorgeous name jewelry, five perfumes, and a lip screen, all from reputable brands. Little Black Bag has definitely cemented itself as my new favorite way to shop! 

So, have you tried it out yet? Here's my referral link if you're interested!

Isn't it so freakin cute? I haven't been able to wear it yet because I've worked every day since I got it (I work in a healthcare facility, so no way I'd wear it to work, lol) and I'm DYING to wear it. So adorable and full of detail in person.
