I’m moving at an incredibly slow pace today. I am pretty sure it has to do with my fear of starting a new job tomorrow. I’ll be selling handbags (Is this perfect for me or what?) at a high-end department store. My experiences will definitely be a future post–lol!
But–I have to tell you about the little gem of an organizer I found today. My makeup desk is a chaotic mess and my attempts to organize my cosmetics and beauty products always manage to go awry. And so, I’m constantly shoving shit around and getting nowhere.
Anyway, there’s a Five Below discount store at the strip mall where Sally is located. So I went in. You never know what treasures lurk at Five Below! While checking out the cosmetics aisle, I came across an eye shadow palette by Colormates. At three bucks, it looked like a decent palette to throw into my purse if I needed a quick touch up.
Not a bad choice of shadows. The only color I would bypass is the blue. But this is a decent palette to keep in your purse or to take along on an overnight trip! Right?
I was actually surprised at how pigmented these colors are. They feel nice and don’t seem to be ashy–they are aren’t the most finely milled and there can be a bit of fallout, but overall, it isn’t bad at all!
There’s also quite a bit of shimmer, but overall the pigmentation is decent for a three dollar item!
And I’m cruising the other aisles but nothing strikes my fancy. And then I spot it–a little gem for organizing! A hanging jewelry organizer. Upon inspection, I noticed the pockets were a good size. A little light bulb went off in my head! I could use this to house some of my makeup!
Isn’t this great? Not only are some of my cosmetics no longer stuffed in drawers or boxes, but they are easy to find! I have to go back and position the cosmetics so that the labels are facing the same way! I’m so happy!
I’m liking this so much that an additional trip to Five Below is needed. At five bucks, this is a great little gem of an organizer! When I’m getting ready in the morning, I can take this out of the closet and hang it over the closet door knob within reach. I’m also glad that the black & white color combo was available!
Here’s a closer view.
So what do you think? Anyone have cool DIY organizing ideas that they want to share? God knows that I could surely use them!!
Hey lads and lassies–I’m sorry that today’s post is a short one–it’s just that I’m getting all nervous about tomorrow! It’s time for a girly-girl bubble bath, facial mask and some fake tanning on the legs!
And so I leave you with this beautiful version of Nessun Dorma, an aria from Puccini’s opera Turandot performed by Paul Potts. My wonderful blogger buddy, Lady Calen of Impromptu Promptlings, linked this video of him and it gave me major goosebumps and tiny tears! Enjoy! XOXOXOXOX
