Whenever I take a short trip somewhere, I am always searching for an organizational solution for my beauty products. As you can imagine, I have a hard time choosing what products I want to take with me. As the years have gone on, I’ve learned that I end up using a lot less than I ever take with me, and it makes it easier for myself if I just carry multi-tasking makeup products with me (i.e, eyeshadow palettes). I used to shove my beauty products into anything I could find…an old Victoria’s Secret shopping bag, a section of my suitcase, or even a plastic bag. Sometimes my products would end up broken or opened and splattered everywhere. Enter beautiful, inexpensive, accessible travel accessories by Modella. This 3-Piece Weekender Set in “Flower Hour” is not only functional but it’s also gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing.

Flower Hour just has my name written all over it in design. It has a gorgeous paisley flower design with a bright minty-turquoise color that just screams happy.
In terms of style, I think this bag is just really elegant, classic, and timeless. It’s got a bit of a “boho” vibe to it, which I love, but most importantly, it stands out, so I’ll always be able to find it easily.
The bag has double straps at the top so you can carry it the way you would a regular purse. I love this in a beauty organizer because I can stick it next to me in the car while I’m traveling and I don’t have to worry about anything breaking or spilling during the ride. You could even keep this inside of your car on a regular basis or next to your office desk as a “beauty bag” of essentials you might need.
When you open up the 3-Piece Weekender Set, there are three compartments: a large zippered compartment at the top, a small zippered compartment with clear casing, and a small zippered compartment made of netting material that houses a loofah and two small plastic bottles.
The biggest compartment is more than enough space for a weekend or short trip. You can see how large it is in comparison to my hand above. For a short trip (3-4 days or less), I would place my essentials in this compartment, including an eyeshadow palette, mascara, my eyelash curler, foundation, blush, and lipstick. I tend to bring colors I know I will actually wear while on the trip, so this space is more than enough for a short trip.
The next compartment is one of the two smaller zippered sections. These both flip up, and the casing is clear so you can see what is inside. This would be perfect for small toiletries, and it’s probably where I would pack something like my toothbrush and toothpaste to keep it safe from everything else.
The next compartment is the same size as the one above, but this one has a netted texture to it. This is perfect for any products that might get wet or have moisture to them. Inside of this kit, you also get a loofah and two small plastic bottles that can house any of your liquid or cream beauty products. I LOVE this idea. It’s genius to include these. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve packed everything only to forget to bring my loofah with me!
The plastic bottles are genius. I absolutely loathe having to go to the store and buy “sample size” shampoo and conditioner, but at the same time, I don’t want to lug my full-size ones around. I can easily squirt some shampoo and conditioner into these bottles for the trip so I’m not wasting any, and I’m not weighing myself down. You can also use these for lotion or face creams…really, the sky is the limit. These are the only two bottles I have like this around my house right now for traveling, so you better believe they will be getting a ton of use.
Overall: The Modella 3-Piece Weekender Set is beautifully functional and helps you organize your toiletries and beauty products easily. The design, Flower Hour, is bright, classic, and gorgeous. I love the addition of the loofah and two plastic bottles inside of the kit for traveling. It makes taking a short trip that much easier. Since my in-law’s live in FL, we usually take the trip there a few times per year. I’ll be taking this with me on the trip every single time!
