Makeup Organization: How to store my makeup collection?

Seriously, this is a never ending question. Where to store all of the makeup we are collecting…? There are so many great ideas out there!

Should I go this route, with a great frame/magnetic setup a la LauraThoughts81?14-03-2011018

Then there is the Alex drawer from IKEA… This is great for storing a growing collection.

Or the even bigger Alex unit from IKEA

Now that’s what I’m talking about!!

This glass top vanity from LizMarieBlog is pretty amazing –

I could try these stick on pods for convenient storage, wherever I like –

A low cost option is using ice cube trays for storage of smaller items –

DVD racks are a great way to organize palettes!

Or I could always use these catchall storage bins, available on Amazon

Or I could repurpose an old jewelry organizer

So much makeup, so many options!!

How do you organize your makeup?

Target Advent Calendar: Day 3!

This weekend went by so quickly!

Sometimes it feels like there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Today felt a little bit like that to me. Perhaps that is why I am typing on a laptop in a dark room just before midnight. Hoping I don’t wake a baby. Or a little dog that barks easily. That would get the other dog going, don’t cha know?

I had a list of things to accomplish. Some things were done, but they all took a little more time than expected.

Life doesn’t go the way you plan most of the time! Back to the task at hand…

The Video

Fun fact: my little dog started barking while I was filming this video and I was completely oblivious. Also, I completely forgot to say the name of the nail color. It was Twilight Twinkle. Skills– that’s what I got.

Anyway, despite not completing my list for the day, I am still hopeful. Let’s get something accomplished this week, and let’s also be realistic about it.

Did you like Day 3’s item? How are you doing? Any goals for this week?

Target Advent Calendar: Day 2!

What a day! My internet wasn’t working earlier today so I wasn’t sure I’d even be able to post. I’m happy to be connected again! It’s time for the second day of 12 Days of Beauty Faves!

As I was editing this video, I caught myself cringing a lot. I was pretty tired when I filmed this particular video, and it seems I had a lot of trouble focusing. Maybe this can be used as evidence that people need a good amount of sleep to function properly. Yes…

I hope you all are doing well and having an enjoyable week. It’s pretty cold here- but I think it’d be good weather for snowshoeing or cross country skiing. We’ve got the snow, and with the sun out- it just makes activities like those lovely. I really like snowshoeing; I need to make some time for it.

Only 2 more days until Friday! Woohoo! What are you up to? What do you need to make time for?

p.s. Tomorrow I will be posting an update on my No Hoarding Here Challenge. I don’t know about that name. I’ll have to think about it. Be sure to check out what I’m getting rid of. 🙂

Target Advent Calendar: Day One!

On Tuesday, I said I would start to upload videos every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until we’re caught up. I didn’t know how soon I would start Target’s 12 Days of Beauty Faves calendar. It’s today! I’m planning on making a short video for each of the 12 days.

I’m a little obsessed with the videos. My apologies for the lighting and ucky coloring in the background. Bad combination.

Also, I checked Target’s site again and they marked the calendar down to $14.99. So the price has been bouncing around. Did you like the product from Day 1? Do you think you’ll purchase this calendar?

Wishing you a cozy weekend!
