Chocolates and Makeup

Doesn’t that sound like the name of a great blog? Should I rename mine to that? Anyways for the Christmas holidays eating chocolate happens big time and lots of them come in great packaging. Combine that with a makeup lover’s growing collection of makeup and it’s a match made in heaven.
Seriously I was on vacation after Christmas and trying to figure out a better way of organizing my makeup when it happened. The empty Christmas tree-shaped plastic container that previously held Ferrero Rocher chocolates were just the perfect thing for my loose eye-shadows. You know I for some reason had a great fear for loose eye-shadows but I have since conquered that and now my stash has grown and is growing out of control.
Now the actual packaging insert could hold 12 round chocolates but my eye-shadow pots were just barely fitting in them and of course it just made more sense to remove it to be able to store more.
Now the moral of the story is not to rush out and buy chocolates just to store your makeup but rather utilize what you have around you. Try to recycle something old into something new. Who knows what you may uncover and of course you save money by not having to buy a new organizer for your makeup.
Happy recycling!

  1. That is a great idea you've come up with, and your shadows look so cute in that chocolate box...err...tree! :)

    Good message that you're promoting - Reusing is something that I need to think about doing more.

  2. Me too! I usually think I just need to buy something instead of thinking about what I already have that can be used!

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you.

But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
