Day 40 Compact
The word compact immediately brings to mind the words powder and Stratton, the brand I remember from the 50s. Oh, the fiddle-faff of decanting loose powder into one of these decorative metal cases, then fitting the gauze screen that stopped the powder escaping, not always successfully, and remembering to wash the puff before it got too greasy! I no longer wear powder as I hate the way it settles into the wrinkles. This little travel pack was a Christmas present from a friend; everything in it is a very compact size and it all fits very compactly into its "compact".
