Fall Cleaning: The Vanity

Beauty, Decorating, diy, jewelry, Lifestyle, Minimalism, simplicity, Uncategorized

Happy Wednesday everyone! I don’t know if you all knew this, but I’m sort of a messy person. I’m not at all a dirty person, but I’m pretty dang disorganized. Somehow, some way I always end up with clutter in places where there should not be…like my vanity. All those cosmetic organizers and it still manages to get cluttered. When this happens, I know it’s time to start over and rethink how I organize.

When it comes to my vanity, I have to start ALL the way over and even change out the drawer liner. I’m even thinking about creating my own storage container for it because it’s just so cluttered all the time. I’m not sure if the JerryBox is working out too well. The brushes always come flying out every time that I turn it to find what I’m looking for.

Anyway, so far I’ve cleared some space by purchasing a corner shelf on Amazon. The main reason I got this was that my perfume and nail polishes were being directly exposed to the sun and I think this affects the formulations…especially the nail polishes.

The shelf is pretty sturdy and it already fits my room décor. However, it is kind of cheap and not the greatest quality but it works and I really like it. Also, my perfumes and nail polishes now have a nice home away from the direct sunlight.

I typed a lot of this earlier in the day and then made my way to AC Moore to see what I could find to change up my vanity situation. I picked up some construction paper as my drawer liner and tried to look for some sort of container that had drawers.I got home and purged everything I didn’t need and cleaned off everything I did need with baby wipes. Surprisingly, I didn’t dread doing any of this; in fact, I found it pretty cathartic.

I went with the dark orange construction paper because it screams fall and looks great under my acrylic containers. I also found a jewelry box that wasn’t being used and am now using that to store my favorite rollerballs, liquid lipsticks, and lipglosses. The jewelry box is a nice touch because it’s mirrored, I wish I would have thought of this sooner.

I didn’t realize this post was going to end up being all about my vanity so I’m going to have to divide these fall cleaning posts into parts now. So that is all for today you all! Thanks for reading as always!

JerryBox Cosmetic Organizer

Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle, Minimalism, simplicity, Uncategorized

You guys should know by now that I’m trying my actual hardest to get organized. The best place to start for me is usually my vanity and I go from there. I thought I had it all figured out at one point and threw the majority of my makeup into this really pretty wired bowl. That system worked out for awhile until I had to dig around just to find stuff and somehow makeup would get EVERYWHERE!

So for about a month and a half, I had a purchase in mind but kept putting the purchase on hold until this Monday. This Monday was Prime Day on Amazon and the prices were all just really amazing deals. Soo…I figured why not get my hands on the JerryBox Makeup Storage. The Jerrybox is a makeup and makeup accessory organizer that saves a ton of space on your vanity.

 

The actual setting up process is really self-explanatory, you just kind of fit all the pieces together. There are also directions on the back of the box, which do help out if you need it.

 

There are different styles of the Jerrybox which include: Tower, Circle, and Square in white, black and transparent. I went with the circle style in white, but if I were to purchase this again I would most definitely get the Tower in transparent just because it looks like it may be easier to clean.

I haven’t figured out how I want everything to sit on here, but I’m sure it’ll all come to me very soon. Overall, the JerryBox is a really cool, innovative, and a pretty ingenious idea that easily clears up space on your vanity. It has a plastic feeling, but it is still quite sturdier than I expected.

So that’s all for today my lovelies! I hope this was a cool post for you guys! If you’re interested in the JerryBox, it’s on Amazon for a pretty decent price. Thanks for reading!!
