In addition to my dislike of things on display, I’m also not a huge fan of all things girly. Well, I am to a certain level I guess because kittens make me squeal a bit too much, but in general, especially because I live with my boyfriend, I don’t want the flat to have designated ‘girly’ space which he would probably not feel comfortable entering. Because of all this (and probably because I used to live with 4 guys in my previous flat share *cringe*), my ‘girly’ area is in the bedroom, where I’ve got a little office table and a tall shelf from IKEA (who’s surprised, yo?!) made from dark wood which is matching the rest of our bedroom. These two pieces were definitely a bargain, each about £40! Ha, who needs a vanity table, right?!
As you can see below, the tall shelf has got 3 shelves that have got some sort of make-up related items in them and the table has got three empty drawers that I filled in with big boxes and put make-up (palettes, blushes, foundations), skin care and perfumes in. The boxes cost, I think, £8 each and are from IKEA.
One of the shelves has got two large square boxes (one has got make-up in it – mascaras, eyeliners and lip care products; the other one has got necklaces and large bracelets). You can see a pouch with samples and shampoos ready for a giveaway *hint hint*!
The lowest shelf has got a big nail polish box (from TKMaxx for £7) which also has got nail care and hand care products in it, the long-ish boxes with lip glosses and earrings, four Peter Rabbit tins (they used to have sweets in them, nom nom nom!) that now became a home for my rings (bronze-tarnished ones, silver ones and golden ones) and a little jar with whipped cream on it which stores all my hair pins (courtesy of Terri).
