As life becomes more busy and filled with accomplishments and worries alike, it can really set your mind at ease to sort out your belongings. Getting rid of things you don't use, mending things that need fixing, and organizing the things you use daily. For me, my morning make up routine was one of those things that were in dire need of organizing, as my ever expanding collection of daily products was just creating a mess all over the bathroom counter. After googling, pinning, soaking up inspiration and comparing prices, this is part of my solution.
I ended up buying a lipstick tray over at aliexpress.com, but you can find similar options on ebay. This one was super cheap and arrived about two-three weeks after I ordered it, which was much faster than expected. Great value for money!
Secondly, I bought this acrylic 3 compartment desk box from muji. If you order from Belgium or the Netherlands, I advise you to visit the German website as it delivers for a much lower price than the UK website. Now, my experience with muji has been mixed: the products are lovely, affordable and delivered quickly, however, one of my deliveries (this acrylic drawer box) was damaged, and even though I emailed muji repeatedly over the last ten days, I only received a reply once. They have not yet sent me a return form to allow me to send back the item free of charge, and I will surely not pay to ship back an item that was damaged on its way to me. Hopefully muji will still fix this, but it's not exactly recommendable customer's service.
Finally, the hand jewelry holder you see on the right has been in my possession for a while, ordered via Bol.com's jewelry store. I think it looks lovely, and it's a great way to store -and show off- the pieces of jewelry I wear on heavy rotation.
Doesn't look half bad, does it? How do you organize your make up? Any tips or recommendations, or options on your wishlist?
