Vanity Organization

Today was cabinet organizing day! My bathroom cabinet was a mess with ugly bottles all over the place. I needed to consult one of my favorite magazines, Domino, for some help:

The Before:

It's not bad, just not great. You can see all of my pills, creams and sprays all over the shelves. There are no clear "zones" for getting ready in the morning.

The After:

 Check out the zones I've added:

Now everything is logically grouped.

Products Used:

1. West Elm Mercury Tealight Holders, $5 each
2. Jamali Garden 4 1/2 inch Brass Julep Cups, $8.99 each
3. Muji Polypropylene Box, $2.75
4. J.Crew Cosmetic Bag

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Top 5 - Back to School

So I'm kind of a crazy person, because even though I am no longer in school, I get pumped up for back to school sales and items. Maybe it's because it means fall is coming, and I love the cool crisp weather - or maybe it's just because I love organizing and a whole slew of new products come out this time of year. Here are my top picks for back to school 2014:

Palomino Blackwing Pencils, from Jack Spade

I love the eraser shape. Choose between black or white.

Der Reisende Scheduler, from Mochi Things

These are undated, so you can start at any time. I love the available pattern options.

Herschel Supply Co. 'Settlement' Backpack, at Nordstrom

This backpack makes me thing of a swanky English boarding school.

Parisienne Pencil Case, at Anthropologie

Add some french flair to your desk.

And the Brass Desk Clip, also at Anthropologie

I love the classic color of this clip.

Good luck to everyone going back to school!

Beauty Crush: Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Eye Pencil

I discovered these at Walgreens a few weeks ago and purchased them in Stay-On Black and Continuous Almond. I am in love! The pigment is great. I have been using the black for smokey eyes and the beige color as a base and a highlighter. At only $3.99 each, they are a steal!
