How I Organise My Makeup

Thursday, September 28, 2017

I have this thing with organising. I could spend hours upon hours just organising everything from my clothes, to my uni papers to my makeup. I don't know why but I just love it. Today, I decided to show you how I storage my ever-growing makeup collection.

I bought these acrylic drawers from Primark a few weeks ago and I'm in love with them. They cost 10€ and actually storage loads of things. I didn't have a place to place my makeup palettes before I bought this unit but now I just place them all (it's not like I have a lot of eyeshadow palettes anyway) inside the first drawer alongside a few face powders I reach for everyday.

On top of the drawers I have a foundation/lipstick holder I got from a local homewear store for about 6€. I've had this holder for about two years now, I think and it's very handy. Here I storage my go-to lipsticks (liquid and regular ones) as well as my go-to foundations, primer and setting spray. Also, on the back, I have two eyeliners, my go-to mascara and some lip and eye pencils.

When it comes to my brushes, I store them in two different containers. The silver cup is supposedly a 'toothbrush holder' but when I saw it I knew I hat to get it so I could use it as a brush holder. And the best part: it cost only 2€! Mind= blown.
I also use a mug I got at Flying Tiger two years ago. I don't really drink tea or coffee so the mug was just sitting in the cabinet until I decided to actually give it some use. Now it sits there looking all pretty with these amazing marble brushes inside.

What's In My Bag? + Dresslily Review

Saturday, September 23, 2017




It's been a while since I've done a 'what's in my bag' post. I think the last time I did was around this time last year. A lot has changed since last year in terms of what I carry around with me so I decided to write a brand new one. If you're anything like me, you love these kinds of posts.




I've been using this Dresslily bag for a few days now and I'm obsessed with it! It's the perfect size for me to carry my stuff around and it's also great to take to uni since my notebook fits inside perfectly. If you're not familiar with Dresslily, I've done a wishlist post with their items before (unfortunately I didn't ad any sweater dresses at the time but I have to say I'm in love with a lot of them at the moment)




Inside my bag, I  always carry my card holder and a small heart-shaped purse, both from Parfois. Also, I tend to carry the lipstick I'm wearing on a given day (in this case, the one in the picture is from Cien), my Catrice loose powder and my mini Shu Uemura brush.

As a blogger, I'm constantly thinking of new post ideas, photo ideas and a lot more so I need somewhere to jot down my thoughts and ideas. I don't like writing stuff on my phone as I feel like I'll forget I wrote something so I tend to carry my Primark marble journal with me as well as a pen.





What is the one thing you always carry with you in your bag?





Free Phone Wallpapers For Personal Use

Monday, September 18, 2017





I have this thing with phone wallpapers: I love changing my phone background which results in me choosing a new wallpaper at least once a week. But with this happening, there comes a time where I end up repeating wallpapers because I can't find new ones that I love. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own phone wallpapers. 
I've created a whole bunch of them and have been using them for a few weeks now. They turned out pretty good if I do say so myself haha. 

Back in February, I created a post where I gave for free a few lists and that post was one of my best-performing ones yet so I thought ''Why not give these wallpapers for free as well? People seemed to like the lists, they will probably like these wallpapers as well''. 

Well, here I am! And here are 8 free phone wallpapers for you!

September Playlist

September is here but the summer feeling hasn't left me. I still feel like dancing all around the house and sing at the top of my lungs all the summer songs.

Got a Gift for Me?

Sunday, September 03, 2017





Have you ever had a mental block when trying to pick out a present for a loved one? Of course you’ve had. Everyone has. It’s quite funny actually: during the whole year, we see stuff either in stores or online that we think would be a great gift for someone but when it comes the time to actually give them something, all the ideas we had seem to vanish from our minds. 

Well, those days are over! Today, I’m here to introduce you to UncommonGoods: a Brooklyn based retailer that makes the most amazing gifts. Most of their products are made in the USA and about one-third of their collection incorporates recycles and/or upcycled materials. That’s pretty cool if you ask me.

Something I find amazing about this brand is the fact that you can actually take a look at their designers and artists’ workspaces and know what goes in their heads. UncommonGoods created Studio Tours, where you can actually experience how everything works.

Oh and there’s more! UncommonGoods also gives you the opportunity to help a charity of your choice with their Better to Give program! With every purchase you make, they donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice. They have started this program 12 years ago, they have donated over $1Million to charities around the world!

As I said before, UncommonGoods has an amazing Gift Section where you will find all sort of gifts for all sorts of occasions. Today, I decided to show you my favourite items from two categories: Personalized gifts and anniversary gifts.

I hope you enjoy them and make sure you head over to the UncommonGoods website so you can check out all the amazing stuff they have!
