My 34-year-old Traincase

DSC_0246

People have been asking where I got my red traincase from ever since I’ve exposed it in the background of my recent videos. The very first post I made about this baby was back in 2010! I looked horrible in the post, but if you wanna read it, here’s the link:

I didn’t buy it. It was handed down to me by my mother! Would you believe this traincase is 34 years old?! When I got it, it looked as good as new! It’s Samsonite, by the way. I don’t know if this model is still around at present.

I’ll be buying a bigger traincase very soon because my makeup collection has definitely grown over the years (and it still is!)

Red is such a lucky color. (You all know how I feel about red stuff!)

So…I hope that answered the questions of those who asked!
