Apologies for the absence – Christmas, merriment, yada yada… I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while.
As vices go this does not make me the coolest cat in town – I’ve reconciled myself with that fact. Nothing de-fuzzes my brain than a good spruce. Add my inability to throw anything away and we have a bit of a vicious circle. Keith Richards modelled his life on this kind of out of control debauchery and hedonism. This I am sure of.
While this crazed hoarding and tidying complies to most aspects of my life (my poor flatmate bears my ridiculousness like a champ), the beauty department has gone by the by. During a mid-week cleaning frenzy I found six (6?!) overflowing makeup bags and two baskets full of beauty products stowed away for scrounging through, as and when I need something. Seeing as my day to day makeup is comprised of about 4 things, I don’t really know how I’ve let it get so out of control.
Which is why the neat freak inside me squeaked with delight at this Muji organiser. I get major cupboard envy from blog Into The Gloss which goes into the bathrooms of makeup artists and models revealing their orderly paradises of Chanel, NARS and Bobbi Brown.
This is how God intended makeup to be, colour categorised, shiny and sub-divided according to use.
Damn, I LOVE IT.
Sadly this only accommodates about 2 out of the 6 bags, but it’s a good start.
