New makeup storage

For the past few years, my makeup storage has been a tiny Ikea cart outside my bathroom door. Not so glamorous, and not very practical or organized. Last month, after doing some research and stocking up on Muji drawer organizers, I finally dragged my husband to Ikea and picked up the MALM dressing table. I know, I know, all I need is a set of ALEX drawers, and I’ll be a real beauty blogger! Seriously, though, I do like the ALEX drawers and might pick up a unit some day. For now, I’m happy with my dressing table, and its limited storage is good for keeping my collection in check.

I did originally want one of those ridiculous “Hollywood” lighted vanity mirrors, but they’re like $400! I’m quite happy with my little shelf mirror; I think it’s adorable, and I love putting a few of my favorite trinkets on it. Right now I have my Thierry Mugler Alien perfume, my teensy Chloe Eau De Parfum, a Richie Tenenbaum pin from an art show, and an amethyst (my birth stone).


It’s pretty modest, and I don’t have a cute stool yet, but I’m pretty happy with it!
