Been Locked Inside Your Heart-Shaped Box

Well these aint heart-shaped things I'm about to show you today, but I do LOVE them a lot - so in my opinion that gives qualification for the title of this post (thank you for borrowing some lyrics, Cobain.) 
I'm so glad I've gained some new friends here lately! But I hope you all follow me on Instagram too, since I post random things about beauty, food, fashion etc. there way more often than will ever have the time to post here! :) You can find me here or by clicking on the link on my sidebar, under the Instagram feed. What I'm showing today is my new and improved make up storage. Some time ago I bought glass and acrylic cups for my beauty products and brushes from thrift store and clearance sale of one local store. Those glass cups have recently moved to kitchen (where they belong in most homes) and been replaced by two acrylic drawers. They're already almost full of lipsticks and eyeliners hehe. So I guess I could say I've hopped on board with the "beauty blogger bandwagon", everybody has cases similar to these! Mine aren't from ebay (would have to wait a month for them to arrive, if they would at all) or some expensive online retailer (I've seen similar with a lot uglier handles sold for prices like 50-100 euros, just ridiculous). Instead I found these from local cheap home decor store for 10 eur /piece. Yippiee!

and Panos Emporio Gold Flower I got from my friend for Christmas ♥


FIN: Toivottavasti kaikki seurailevat minua jo Instagramissa, koska sinne tulee laitettua paljon useammin sekalaisia kuvia (kauneus-, ruoka- ja muotijuttuja ym.) kuin tänne ikinä ehtisin :) Tänään oli sopivasti aikaa istahtaa aloilleen koneelle ja näyttää eräät uutukaiset meikkipöydälläni - ei kuitenkaan mitään uusia tuotteita vaan säilytysratkaisuja! (Jännä muuten miten aloin kirjoittamaan ihan eri asioita suomeksi kuin yllä englanninkielisessä versiossa, hih!) Aiemminhan jo hankin Tiimarin loppuunmyynnistä muovikippoja sudeille ja lasiastioita kaikille meikeilleni, mutta lasiset löysivät jo vähän aikaa sitten uuden kodin keittiöstä (jonne ne useimmissa talouksissa olisivat alunperinkin kuuluneet) ja tilalle saapui kaksi upeaa laatikostoa! Tällaisethan ovat jo todella tuttuja muotiblogeista ja ties mistä, ja niin minäkin päädyin hyppäämään samaan junaan. En kuitenkaan lähtenyt tilaamaan ebayn kautta (kuukauden odotus ja jos edes saa mitään kotiin asti) tai kalliista nettikaupoista (olen nähnyt samankaltaisia rumemmilla vetimillä jopa 50-100 eurolla, huhhuh!) ja viimein löysinkin puolivahingossa täydelliset yksilöt JYSKistä kympillä kipale. Jipii!

crown jewels of my lippies; Lancome & YSL
also two Dzintary lipsticks from Latvia

  I need to move this ring tray & watches somewhere else .. 

You can't really tell from this photo what the content of the bottom drawer is,
 but those are my Dior eye shadow palettes - still in their velvet pouches.

acrylic cups for brushes & stuff

  my new deer necklace (from Rosegal, featured here)

Noticed the white cat and kitten? They're from my childhood, and I don't even know how old they are
(both have faced some damages, kitten has been glued together and mummy has lost her furry collar) and who they originally belong to. I'm so glad I'm such a little hamster that I've kept them save this long, though. I've been loving white interior details a lot lately and also looking for inexpensive porcelain animal figurines from thrift stores .. you can take a peek at my tiny rabbit find here!

I've placed pink ribbon on the "mum cat's" neck to cover the place where her furry collar used to
 ..at least I think so, since I've seen similar figurines with that detail. :)

    1. Thank you dear! These drawers are so handy and could be used for anything really, not just for make up. :) Aww thanks, I've been trying to find some more figurines but still no luck. Except two cats -statue/vase :)

  5. hehe, I think I've seen similar storage boxes in building materials' stores. those have such a huge selection so I recommend you to check some out if you can/are interested ;) anyway, you and your beauty goodies! I admire you for the fact how you manage to keep that stuff in order and also come up with new ideas how to display everything. I only do it in my head right now but I have some storage thingies I have bought for my beauty goodies and I'm excited about using them one day :) your posts are definitely an inspiration!

    1. Oooooh then I must pay a visit to some of those, as well ;) I love to use items for different purpose that they're sold for hehe. :P
      Well yes, even though I can be a bit messy at times I want my make up, clothes, jewelry to have their own places. Organized chaos, I guess.

      Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm embarrassed really ♥

  9. Mulla on toi sama säilytysrasia koruja varten, mutta nyt tuli jotenki pakottava tarve saada tuollainen toinen meikkejä varten! :-----) Voi kun olis tilaa vielä mihin laittaakkin se!

    1. Oi kiva kuulla ! Nämä on kyllä tosi käteviä, haluaisin itsellekin useamman että saisi koruja siististi & samanlaisiin säilytysrasioihin. Tällä hetkellä kun löytyy metallisia korvistelineitä, erilaisia korurasioita vierekkäin ja pari lasikippoakin niin on ulkoasu aika sekava :D
      Joitakin tällaisia boxeja voi pinota (näitä mun ei, eivät asetu ainakaan ensimmäisten kokeilujen jälkeen) niin säästää tilaa! :)

    2. Mulla oli ennen tuota rasiaa kaikissa just pikkupurkeissa, mariskooleissa yms sekavissa korut esillä, tykkään kun ne on esillä mutta se niiden pölyttyminen on ihan pyllystä! Tuo rasia ratkaisi senkin ongelman :-D ne on esillä mut ei pölysiä <3
