I’m Seeing Double: Brahmin Double

My poor UPS guy. I see him every single day… and I mean every single day. At one point last year, he had to back his UPS truck into my driveway. That’s how many boxes he delivered to me. It was right before Getting Gorgeous and I was doing the gift bags for 350 women. My next door neighbor called me and was like -“What the heck is going on over there?” LOL!

So, last night, I didn’t expect anything different. My doorbell rang. We had some small talk. I took the packages and went on with my night. I placed them on my counter and didn’t open them because I was a little tired and about to start a Twitter party. My husband was the one to check them out. He opened up a box from Brahmin and said… “Uh oh! You’re going to get excited about this one…”

“Which one?”

I went over and looked inside the box and saw this – two new Brahmin Anytime Mini Clutches in Twilight –  just perfect for the winter. Shut. The. Front. Door.

There was a note from the company’s CMO telling me to give one away to a family member for Christmas. This is insane!! I have to see if my mother likes clutches – otherwise it’s going to a cousin.

Have you heard of Brahmin? I write about them all the time because I am obsessed with the brand. Over the years,  I’ve met several of their team members and have been carrying a bag from one of their lines since 2009. I think I’m up to 4 at this point. The quality cannot be beat and every single time I wear one of their bags, SOMEONE asks me where I got it from.

The other day, I was shopping in Macy’s (looking for a new wallet during Friends and Family – kill me) and came across a Brahmin section! When did that happen??? I thought they weren’t in department stores. Turns out they are in Macy’s and Nordstrom. That was a nice surprise.

Anyway, if you are still shopping for holiday presents (for your loved ones or for yourself) check out Brahmin! It’s a gift that will last a lifetime.
