I'm feeling a little sorry for myself today. I have yet another cold and the clutter in the house is making me grumpy. On this occasion, I can't blame the clutter on everyone else as it's seems I'm also a major offender. My make up and skincare is spilling out of my bedroom. When I first started blogging, I posted about my Beauty Box storage. I'm ashamed to say that it's almost full now and I have stuff piling up on my bedside table, stuffed in several make up bags and in random bags at the bottom of my wardrobe. I even have rogue bottles of nail polish dotted about downstairs. I can't ignore it anymore and I need to take some action.
I had been looking at some Muji storage a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, the lovely desktop storage I was looking at would only really help with the small make up items and I need something for skincare items too. When I was in Selfridges last week, I spotted this lovely Muji storage tower. I have a terrible feeling I would fill it instantly though and have no room for growth. I think what I actually need to invest in is this unit from Argos. It's not as attractive as the Muji but if it's going to live in my wardrobe, I don't suppose it really matters. Plus, the Argos storage comes with four plastic shoe boxes which will be handy for organising some of the childrens' toys.
In other news, I went to Milton Keynes yesterday to do some shopping. I managed to completely resist buying any make up for myself, hurrah! I still couldn't find any Dusky Mauve nail polish despite the size of the Barry M stands in Superdrug and Boots. This colour is like gold dust. What I did spy was the new Guerlain Les Ors collection. I swatched both of the Rouge G lipsticks that were on the stand but I think only Bee (B64), the stunning dark violet, is actually part of the collection. I was interested to see the eyeshadow palette in person. I love everything in the quad with the exception of the gold (yes, I know it's a gold collection but I'm contrary). I'd hoped that it might be less yellow in the flesh but swatching it, I know it's absolutely not a colour I would wear. Very good news for the spending ban!
So, what have you been up to this weekend? Have you been shopping? Did you spot anything nice? Feel free to share your storage tips too. I'm hoping to spend this afternoon sorting it all out!
