Pots & Things

26 March 2014

I don't know how many times I've mentioned it on my blog, but I seem to have a problem with storage in my room. I have too much stuff and don't know where to put anything and recently I brought  some stuff and thought hey why not show you guys. I' very fussy with my room and it has to be neat, even though it rarely is, and to keep it tidy everything needs a place. Unfortunately I'm not there yet but there's no point fussing over my current room as after the summer holidays I'm going to be moving into my sisters room which is much bigger and has more room for storage and everything and I want to make it so nice oooh I'm so excited!
I have a plan in my head what I want it to look like, it probably wont work though but oh well!

Back to the post; here are some little things I have in my room to try and keep some order.

I use two make up bags to hold my makeup; one is from Primark and the other is from Topshop. They are both good at containing my makeup and stopping it from cluttering my drawers, but I would prefer to have a drawer with a separator in it or something so I can see all my makeup and make it easier to choose what to use. I love it when makeup is set out like that; but at them moment I have no appropriate drawers so these are good. I separate my makeup into the separate bags by what I use on a daily basis and what I don't, but to be honest I use a mix of everything so that system doesn't really work!

In my Ikea pots I' pretty typical. I have two which I keep my makeup brushes and stationary in. I got them in light green and light pink because they go best with my room, but mainly because I like them best in these colours. My stationary one isn't really big enough for all of them but it's too cute not to use and I'm worried my makeup brushes one wont be big enough in a while due to my ever expanding make up brushes collection, but I will find a way for everything to fit!

To hold my fabulous array of white board pens I just use this old cup which I think I made ages ago. It's old but cute (kind of) and just has that kind of three year old arts and crafts party vibe thingy even though I' not sure if I made it myself or not...but it has my name on it so maybe! I don't know, but it's just a lil cup just the right size for my board pens.

I think I've mentioned this before but I also love this little box thingy I got for, I think, my birthday last year. I love the patterns on it and the inside is velvet and I just love everything about it except the clasp has always been a broken. Its such a cute little box and I love the mirror and detail on it. I use it to store some hair bands in and other random bits and bobs. I think it's off eBay and although I love it, it has always been fairly broken with a very delicate clasp and lid.

To store my lotions/moisturisers and nail varnishes in I just use two random boxes. One is a box which I got a Christmas present in years ago which I keep my nail varnishes in. Like with my makeup storage, I'd rather have them stored neater so I could all of my options, like on one of those stand things. However my nail varnish collection isn't very impressive, so for now this is good.  I want loooaaads of nail varnishes but I rarely wear nail varnish. However, when I do, I do seem to change it all the time so really there is a little reason to buy more.. To keep my moisturisers in I just use the Our Moment box from One Direction since it holds them all. I don't moisturise nearly as much as I need to, even though I do have quite a lot of lotions; none are particularly fancy but still a moisturiser is a moisturiser.

Finally the last thing I'm going to show you are these little pots I keep my earrings in. I've had the green one for ageeees, sine I first got my ears pierced I think or very close to that time and recently got the heart one. I love both of these, I love the pattern and designs and the mirrors and just love them both so much. I think the green one is from Menorca, but I'm pretty sure you can get them in England; definitely Camden. They're cheap and hold all my earrings perfectly. I split up my earring between them by sterling silver (which I call my baby earrings since all my sterling silver earrings are really old embarrassing ones like fairies and ladybirds..if you wear these I sure they look great I just don't like them personally on me) and the non sterling silver ones. This makes it easy because if I've had non sterling silver earrings in for too long they turn my ear green? I know it sounds odd, but it is very common, so I have to change the to sterling silver so having these two pots makes the process easy!:)
