At the moment mine and my brothers bathroom is being updated so yesterday I had to clean all my makeup/ beauty products out of the bathroom and find a new home for them, for the next month. Firstly I separated the products I regularly used from the ones I didn’t. I had a good old clear out and stored away all the things I didn’t use regularly into a huge box. Next I put all my shampoos, body wash and all the things I needed for the bathroom, into another box which is now being stored in mums ensuite which Ben and I are now going to have to share with her for the next month. Now …. Makeup! Mum said I wasn’t allowed to keep or do my makeup in her bathroom because there just wasnt going to be enough room for both of us in the morning. So this is when I created my own little bathroom/ dressing table ontop of my chest of draws. So I thought I would give you a Little tour and some tips about temporary storage.
Firstly on my chest of drawer I have my usual Jewlery storage plus I have added bits and bobs from the bathroom including, all my body moisturisers/ deodorants, my contact lenses, Hairbands/ hair clips and of cause my makeup with my brushes and mirror.
Firstly on the left hand corner I have set up a little Jewlery stand and earring pot to neatly keep all my necklaces and earrings. My Jewlery stand is from Oliver Bonas and I made the pot in DT when I was about 12. It’s an elephant!! (OMG sorry I know it needs a dust) You also might see that there are just some pieces laying on the top, these are my most worn peices of Jewlery and are just cute decoration. There is also a very cute robin key ring from accesorize which I got one Christmas.
Next I decided to recycle the large Vaseline tin and keep all my contacts and large hair clips in. I think this is rather quirky and very unique so I love it!!!!!
Next is this deco patch cat which I made at work. I work in a little art shop and when this cat came into The store I knew I needed to make it because it is perfect for your hair bands or brackets. It is also unquie because you have made it! It adds another dimension and a pop of colour.
Next onto makeup ….. This is the more exciting bit!! I Simply have a cute tin which I am keeping all my everyday makeup in. Next to this I have my mirror and then I pot, which I also made, with all my brushes in.
I think that’s all for now
Lots of love Elle xxx
