My panic kit: The products that I always have on hand

I always make sure to have easy access to certain products. This panic kit is the reason that I can get my face done in no time, I won’t have to dig through my drawers to find what I need, but still have a few alternatives to choose from. Let’s go through it!

Do you want a review or some kind of show-and-tell related to any of these products? Just leave a comment!

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.

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.
