Ipsy Time! February: #ipsyLOVE

Damn, that bag is cute!  It’s my second favorite next to my glittery November bag.  This one smells like a brand new backpack on the first day of school.  My January bag gave me wicked grade school PE flashbacks, but I enjoyed other aspects of school.  This bag makes me happy.  I rated the last…
