Makeup Box Shop Organiser

I am in love with my new acrylic makeup organiser. It is exactly what I had been looking for, and I purchased mine online from an Australian store called The Makeup Box Shop. I searched online for a week or so, and went to various stores in the city but couldn’t find anything that would fit as much as these stands do, and everything that was smaller was actually more expensive. Go figure. The Makeup Box Shop boxes are now $99 AUD each, and that includes free shipping anywhere in Australia. The Makeup Box Shop do ship internationally, but you would need to email them for a quote. I highly recommend the store, I was dealing with Katie via email and she was super friendly and helpful and even emailed me to check in on whether or not I had received my parcel. If you’re interested, I’ve also put up a short video on youtube of me rambling about what is actually stored in the drawers. Now, any ideas as to how I can store my brushes?

Books!

I know, I know, I know. I said that I was not going to be buying any more books for a while and yet, here we are. My justification is that in part of my new budget I have allowed myself book purchases at the start of every month. And what do you know, it’s the 1st of January! (happy new year, by the way) I am partaking in the 50 book challenge in 2011, so I will need plenty of new books to keep me going throughout the year. The 4 books I’ve ordered today all include some of my favourite themes – apocalypse, alien invasion and zombies. Awesome. Nothing too brain straining, but if I’m going to get through 50 books this year they can’t all be literary classics.

December Empties

Not great, but not too bad a result for December. I managed to finish up a Pantene 3 Minute Miracle, my Glasshouse Fragrances Montego Bay Hand & Body Creme (one of my favourite scents for summer) and a bottle of Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. Technically I could have included the Dermalogica cleanser in my Project 10 Pan, but I won’t because I was so close to finishing it already, and it feels silly to include it.
