Lipstick organizers

A few weeks ago I bought two lipstick organizers off Ebay to be able to store my “stuff that I use all the time” or “should use a lot more often” lippies in a place where I can see them instead of.. well.. all over my apartment. A cheap way to keep stuff tidy!

Want your own? Just search for lipstick organizer on Ebay and you’ll find loads to choose from.

Why I’m not updating very well right now:

Barely any internet connection + this chaos. Welcome to my life! Moving into a new apartment.

3) Wore no makeup.  4) Swatched Meow Cosmetics shadows.

5) Looked through the latest Make Up Store magazine. 6) Ate awesome food.

7) Checked out the new Gorilla perfumes at LUSH. 8) Wore sleek black from ASOS.

9) Went to perfume heaven with Julia. 10) Showed some cathroom storage from Paul & Joe.

The perfect vegan biker boots + some new storage

H&M är grejen, uppenbarligen! Så bekväma och superkvalitet för att inte vara skinn. Coola och snälla mot djur, jippi!


H&M is the shit, obviously! Very comfortable and great quality for not being leather. Cool and kind to animals, yay!




Och så ett projekt jag jobbat på lite på sistone. Mina fyra Helmers från IKEA som jag förvarar smink och nagellack i började bli alldeles för tunga för bordet de stod på så jag staplade dem ovanpå varandra på golvet istället. Jag tycker faktiskt att det ser rätt fint ut. När man inte har mycket plats så får man jobba kompakt! Haha.


And here’s a project that I’ve been working on lately. My four Helmers from IKEA with makeup and nail polish started weighing too much for the table on which they were standing so I stacked them on top of each other on the floor instead. I actually think that it looks quite nice. When you don’t have much space you have to go compact! Haha.
