    First there was oogiewoogie,

    and there was boxermom,

    then there came Baggiana and doloresmia....

    And after two nights and days of thinking and lots of tPF reading, I became a mom of this chocolate beauty.:heart:

    I was in quest of my first cabat ever since I saw the iced tea (rame) mini cabat at the Ginza boutique in February.

    There are far too many colour choices I would have loved; rame, ottone, parma chevre, oxidized copper, and maybe reflet, but it was C_24 who made me re-realise how amazing BV's classic colours truely are.

    Of course, anyone who have talked about cabat here at the BV sub definitely helped my decision.:yes: Oh, and on top of that, this beauty came originally from bv.luxery's hands.

    So, thanks all for being there! This is truely made of tPF love!!

    Now, onto some important pics.

    2009-07-03 campana in cabat resized.jpg Campana fits in mini perfectly, LOL

    2009-07-03 pyramid in cabat resized.jpg Pyramid snuggly fits in mini. (well, sort of.)

    I agree with blueiris, there is nothing mini about this cabat if you look at the size. I think the naming was to appeal the Asian, especially Japanese customers. We lurrve anything and everything tiny and cute, and mini cabat even sounds like a cute little hippo in Japanese, LOL. I'm no exception and love calling this mini cabat. Hope you don't mind, blueiris.:heart:

    It's just so perfect in every imaginable way for me; the size, the colour, the ease of use, the simplicity that brings versatility, and the incredibly beautiful workmanship. I am determined to use it without babying it, so for the first time I sprayed it. I will carry this everywhere, everyday, and forever.

    Tomas Maier is so right, "it's engineered, functional, aesthetically pleasing, beautiful inside and out - and it works."

    Thanks for letting me share!!:biggrin:
