Caboodles

I picked up this vintage Caboodle case at the weekend from the boot sale. It cost me £1 and found the pastel colours very eye catching. (I am obsessed with pastels). It's perfect for storing all my make-up in one place and is pleasing to the eye as well.
When I got home I did some research on Caboodle's and discovered the first design was made in 1987. I don't remember these cases to be honest as I was born in late 1989, but I can imagine girls storing their hair scrunchies in them and going to sleepovers. The inside has a mirror as well and different compartments so it's easy to separate all my bits n' bobs.
Did you have one of these as a kid?
Check out this advert! I love it :)

  1. I'm a few years older than you, and I don't remember these! They're super cute, though <3

    (I'm also wondering what the little round and square cases in the bottom right corner of the advert are, the ones with the little brushes for lids...)

  4. Maybe not the same brand, but when we were younger I remember getting jealous of my baby sister who had one for her dolls. Come to think of it, I should tell her this if she still has it with her!
