Storage Ideas

Hey guys!

Slightly different post today, been using my camera all day at uni walking around Leeds Art Gallery, so fancied carrying on. Thought i'd show you some of the storage I use for make-up/jewellery etc. I am a very messy person (oops) so these help me a little to keep my important things tidy away and not messy.

I got these paper-mache type brown pots and fake books from hobbycraft over christmas. They were only about 70p each and I loved them! I'm pretty sure they're for decorating, but at the moment I'm keeping them this colour, may decorate when I have a nicely coloured room next year! I keep my nail varnishes in the books, perfect fit! Two of the three pots are full of jewellery, and the last is my tip jar where I collect all my tips from work.

I also bought this GORGEOUS candle holder, but it gets too hot with a candle in! You cannot lift up the top to blow it out, SO I alternated and it is now my make-up brush holder, cute hey?

Finally is this tin bucket, I fill this with my day-to-day makeup, I have a box with other bits in, but my most used things stay in here to make my mornings easier and quicker, can't decide between colours at 9am.

Thanks for this post! I really need to store all my bits and bobs better as my room is one huge clutter at the minute!
