So Modern. So Charming. So FREE!!

I've been eyeing the Modern Charm store for awhile now as I just love her things. Her use of fresh fabrics and retro designs is just darling.

I recently received one of her headbands, and popped it on my head straight out of the mail. Would you believe it stayed ALL DAY LONG?! I have fairly long, very thick hair so I was pleasantly surprised. And it's soooooo comfortable to boot! I'll definitely be getting more of these.

Now the fun part for YOU comes in. Modern Charm is giving away this free make up bag and headband set to one lucky PamperingBeki reader! On Friday, June 15, I'll pick one random name from the comments section on this post as the winner. All you need to do is leave a comment! (Feel free to spread the word and link to this post on your own blog. Double entry if you do.)


Everyone needs a makeup bag. Use it as "packaging" for another gift, such as jewelry, bath products, or a gift card. Or just to hold all those makeup goodies we all love.

You will appreciate the flat bottom design of this makeup bag, designed to stay open and upright at the same time for ease of use. A full strip of velcro all the way across the top keeps everything secure, and ribbon tabs make opening easy. This is made of a yummy Alxander Henry fabric with sage green, buttery yellow, and pink.

Also included is a cute skinny headband - great to pull your hair back when you are washing your face, or to simply wear!

Measurements: 10" wide x 6" high. Fully washable.



So fresh. This is what Modern Charm is all about.

Wow! I'm first to comment. Thanks for your product review. I've seen those headbands on Etsy, but my hair is so heavy, I usually can't wear headbands without them slipping.

Wow, these are so cute...I would love to try one of the headbands...I don't usually have luck with them staying put on my thick hair.
