Instead of just talking about another product and reviewing it, I thought it would be nice to talk about the products I use the most and show were I keep them!
I moved house in November and decided I wanted a more fresh, sleek look - so the corner cabinet you see above is the only storage I have in the bathroom (I do have a hessian trunk to store towels in though & a recess in the tiles next to the shower for shampoo etc).
The cabinet (from Dwell) does actually store everything I need really - plus back-ups of shampoo & conditioner.
In the Bathroom Cabinet...
Top Shelf - Really just contains stuff I use now and again and I put deep hair treatments up there, like the ones that come with hair dye.
Mini Yes To Carrots Shampoo & Conditioner, Mini Dove Conditioner (free with an ASOS order), dental floss and Eucryl Tooth Powder, No7 Protect & Perfect Hand cream sample size and L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Solid Perfume.
Middle Shelf - Contains all the face products I use (minus toner and eye makeup remover).
Neutrogena Rapid Clear Treatment, Botanics Face Brush (use this twice a day - really love it), Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel Mask, Yes to Tomatoes Total Treatment Face Mask (another great product), Avene Cleanance K gel, Good Things Freshening Polish and Naked Jojoba Exfoliating Face Wash.
Bottom Shelf - Afew back-ups and bath products - No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser (with I use with the Botanics Face Brush), N-Spa Hot Butter Fudge Body Polish, Naked Marshmallow & Aloe Silky Shampoo (back up), Naked Cocoa Butter Body Cream and Naked Starflower Bath Foam (back up).
Interior wise I really don't like this area - other than putting a table there and painting over the lime green alcove, I've done nothing. I do plan on painting the alcove wall in black suede paint on either side of the bed and putting up about 4 white heavy floating shelves to the ceiling. With two storage boxes at the bottom and then the rest for books and ornaments. As you can tell I have it all planned out! But it's just a case of finding a weekend to get it all done.
I'm still going to keep side table (from Graham & Green) were it is though as it is quite practical...even though it is so hard too keep dust free & clean! The top two tiers of the table swing round so they can be closer to the bed.
On the top of the table I just keep my Ciate Love Me Cuticle Oil - which is there so I'll remember to apply it before I go to bed, Blistex Relief Cream (I'm always having to apply this due to the nasty weather) and the Tokyo Milk Let Them Eat Cake Lip Balm which I really love.
On the next tier I've kind of squashed my treasured jewellery box which actually use to be my nan's which came from India in the 70's I think. I've always love it because of the secret lock and the amount of detail... and it of course reminds me of my nan in such a nice way.
Then on the bottom shelf I keep a Models Own multi-buffer and No7 full size Protect & Perfect Hand cream - which I try to do at least twice a week to keep my hands and nails healthy. I also keep a small sized Yes To Carrots Hydrating cream there as I always have to moisturize the dry patches on the sides of my nose before bed or else it gets quite bad!
As for the gold looking pen thing - it's a roll on version of Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely perfume which I sadly put on before bed as it seems to help me drift off to sleep!!
The lamp is just from Tesco... the tree thing (it's actually a candle holder) was from Homesense and the bush thing was a present from my boyfriend (which is there because I don't know were to put it)!
This side of the room is actually done - which I am so glad about as it's made it so much nicer to get ready now.
On top of the glass console table (from Tesco Direct) I have another lamp to match the other one and a nice fake Orchid from Next as I really can't keep any Orchid for more than a year without killing it off.
I also have two matching cracked mirror glass tea light holders (from The Pier before it went bust!) that I use to keep mascaras in and the brushes I use daily.
As for the clear storage box it came with a CK makeup set (I wouldn't recommend there products) so I just pulled out the card lining and now use it to store afew eyeshadows, eyeliners and lipgloss. Really need to purchase some Muji storage that can be stacked!
I keep most of my everyday makeup in a little 3 drawer storage unit that I got for £1 from Poundland! The top drawer storing all base products, middle for eye products and the bottom one for lipsticks. Really handy!
Under that I have a Guerlain perfume box that just stores toner, makeup remover and blushers/bronzer.
The wallpaper was from B&Q about a year ago, the mirror was a bargain at Dunelm Mill and the chair (which is what I take all my images for my blog on) was from an interior design showroom.
Hope you liked this peek into what's behind the blog!
