I believe this is a trait of Virgo’s but I frickin’ love organizing!
So my little room where I do all things makeup was looking like it should have been on an episode of Hoarders or needed a do over by the Queens of Clean Kim & Aggi of How Clean Is Your House? (Anyone else love that show? THE BACTERIA THEY FOUND…OMGGGGGGG). My problem isn’t bacteria (I hope!) it’s just messy and unorganized and got to a point where I was like…fuck it i’ll do it next week…and next week..and next week. Eventually I gave in, got up early one morning with a mission in mind and this is how it was achieved.
I only bought a few things to try and get all my crap in check so this is also a budget friendly post! Yay!. First stop was Officeworks where I picked up the Keji 10 Drawer Chrome Trolley
This cost me around $38 and I built it myself in around 20mins. I also bought the Keji 4 Drawer Storage Organizer in Clear
RRP $14.92AUD This is a dupe (is dupe even a thing when it comes to storage?) for the clear boxes you see the Kardashian Klan (facepalm) use or can purchase for a gazillion dollars more online. I’m sure the ones online are a far superior quality plastic and have fancy knobs (lol!) but this is serving me well. You’ve probably seen it featured in my MakeUp Edit
I then went to a local shopping centre and picked up a few more bits and bobs to help with my project. I purchased the two heart tins from Kmart for around $5 each. Perfect makeup brush holders! The pink boxes and the little clear box with dividers are all from Daiso for $2.80AUD each (I love that store, it’s like Aladdins cave). I’ve used the pink boxes on my desk for Empties (video coming soon!) and things I need to swatch/photograph for the blog & the little container with dividers is where I stash my cotton pads/tips etc.
So without further ado, and no judgement please! Here are some before & afters.
First up is my dressing table
My desk where I blog.. take photos & now do my filming in front of
There has also been another change here, the lamp, candles & pugs have been swapped to the other side with my pink drawers etc. If you watch my videos you may have already seen this. I just took these photos awhile ago. I probably should have moved those Converse but they are for a DIY project i’m working on ;).
So the new updated and more organized room is going swimmingly! I’ve managed to keep the mess/clutter down and put my makeup away diligently everyday. It also feels nicer sitting in here and blogging because everything has it’s place and working in a tidy environment is just always more productive I feel.
Hope you enjoyed this post, I love reading all things organization and highly recommend watching OrganizedLikeJen
on YouTube for great decluttering ideas!
