I dream of owning a Carrie Bradshaw style walk in wardrobe, with a wall of shoes, bags and a beautiful French dressing table, but until we win the Lottery, I’ll continue dreaming!!
Google ImagesWe have a spare room which would be a perfect room for girly goodies but at the moment is a super boring office for my husband, filled with books, a desk, computer and a map of the world......are you still awake? Ok....sorry!
The wardrobe/floordrobe is a whole other issue, so for now I’ll stick to the beauty side of things!
So our bedroom was looking super messy with all my makeup, skincare, body care and all other beauty products a girl simply has to have!! Makeup bags full to the brim, Glossy Boxes full of nail polishes, skincare and samples, larger boxes and bags filled with bodycare and haircare!
One Morning Graeme was moaning about my obsession with beauty products and my ever growing collection taking over the room. I massively hinted that I’d love a dressing table, but in the meantime I just need some decent storage!
We have a little cubby hole opposite our bed which housed a TV. We never watched tele in bed so I suggested moving it and having my own beauty area there!
Our bedroom is pretty unisex, it’s deep purple and cream, but I didn’t care if my beauty area didn’t match the room. It was my only girly area (that sounds rude!) and I wanted it to be just that......Girly!!
I’d seen these mini chest of drawers from WHSmith on a few blogs and just thought they were gorgeous and a bargain at £9.99. So I’ve divided up all the makeup I currently use into Face products, eyes, lips, cheeks and the bottom drawer holds lashes and other bits and bobs.
I got two of the matching documents boxes to put my haircare and tanning products in. They were £3.99.
My makeup brushes are stored in these tea light holders from The Range , and only £1.99 each! I think they are really pretty!
I’ve kept my favourite nail polishes in two Glossy Boxes, and the bits I use when doing my nails, remover, files, nail clippers etc in a cute tin from TKMaxx which was only £1.99!
I don’t own as much skincare as I do makeup, so that’s just where it needs to be, in the shower room, bathroom etc, night cream is on my bedside table!
The rest of my products, which I don’t really use, but can’t bare to throw away, I have stored in Glossy Boxes under my bed! I’m such a flippin hauder!!
It’s a far cry from a walk in wardrobe or dressing table, but it’ll do!.......For now!
Oh and here is my lovely Dad putting up my mirror!
