Hey y'all! I'd like to apologize for being gone so long. I've missed you all! I'm not gonna sit around making excuses or doing some "wah-wah" write up, but I'd just like to throw this out there:
If you are someone who is still in the midst of transitioning to all natural products (or are just considering it)... try to do it slooooowly. Don't do what I did and replace everything at once... or at least don't do that if you plan on writing about it. You might just get in over your head!
To illustrate this point, I'd like to show you my newly amassed beauty collection. Think of this as one big haul because 90% of this stuff was purchased after I started this blog (It might even be more than that but I don't feel like doing the actual math so we'll use a conservative estimate). Since I haven't been posting lately, I feel like I've been hiding these goodies from you, so I wanted to offer you a peek!
Warning: I didn't really clean up for this. I literally opened my drawers and snapped a pic so it's a little on the messy side. There are things buried underneath one another, etc. I know you can't see everything, but my goal wasn't to showcase each individual item but just the general idea. Enjoy :)
Here's My Vanity!
|Sorry the wood surface is all icky. It perpetually has weird hair product spots and who-knows-what-else on it! :P|
Here are some of the things that live on top of my vanity: makeup brushes, essential oils and carrier oils, body butters/lotions, hair products, skincare stuff (sunscreens), lip balms, randomly chosen makeup and makeup samples that don't really fit in the first drawer, etc.
First Drawer: This is where I keep most of my makeup and makeup samples. I try keep them loosely organized by type.
Second Drawer: This where I keep unopened items (hot pink box) and backups of things I love. I also keep non-makeup samples, cleansing wipes (opened or unopened), self tanners, wax, and mask supplies (bentonite clay & ACV) here... pretty much, anything that isn't makeup but isn't used on a daily basis.
There's a third drawer too, but I won't show that because I just keep really random things in there, like a shower cap, makeup bags, brush rolls, soap holders, toothbrush covers, bath brushes/scrubbies, etc. Plus, this drawer truly looks a mess!
I hope you enjoyed this quick overview! Let me know if you have any questions or want to know what a specific product is. Seriously, if you're doing the natural beauty thing and blogging about it, consider "cleaning out" your beauty stash over a period of time. I know from experience! ;)
As always, thanks for reading! Again, I'm really sorry for leaving y'all hanging for so long!
