How to: ORGANIZE YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS WITH A SHOE BOX?

Beauty OrganizationHere are just a few cute little ideas to help store some of your beauty products, like nail polish, makeup and more. ūüôā

 I used just simple plastic lunch containers that lost their lids to organize my eye shadows and face products. As well I used little jars to store my brushes and lip products.

For my everyday beauty products that I keep right beside my sink in my bathroom, I keep them organized in a little shoe box (cute and cheap). I put my everyday makeup, as well as my face brush in a jar. Which is both cute as well as functional.

How I redesigned my BEDROOM for a LOW-PRICE!

 

Room decor

I love my room, it is my favorite room in my house. It easy to make your bedroom exactly how you have imagined, you just have to keep an eye out for sales and have a bit of patience. If you want to to cheaply re-decorate your room like I did, you can not complete it over night. You have to wait for deals and shop at many stores to find what you want for the right price. As well I would suggest thrift shopping for those little finishing touches in your room, you never know the amazing things you can find!

 I admit I really was not fond of the this trend when it first came out at all.

Tell me what you think of the trend! Yay or Nay??? I would love to hear what you have to say!

MIXING PATTERNS TREND? Rock it of Stop it?


I feel that ever since we were little all are mothers taught us not to mix patterns when picking out an outfit. Apparently it is wrong to mix polka dots, with stripes or floral. However, I have come to the conclusion that it is very possible you just have to know how to do it. This is a pretty risky trend that I have been seeing lately and have be loving! Here are my tips to successfully mix patterns without looking like a circus.  

What do you think of the mixing patterns trend? Yes or No?

collage 4In this outfit, I have picked above I put a pair of peach polka dot Keds with a black and white floral skirt together. And I made it it work! The Key?

Try to keep ONE pattern a more neutral colour. ( My floral skirt I picked is black and white.)

Incorporate the same colour of one of the patterns in another part of your outfit. (I did this by matching my peach tank with my peach coloured, polka dot Keds.

WHAT’S IN MY BACKPACK!?! Back to School Essentials.

 

 

I know, I know it is is still technically “SUMMER” but I just get so excited with the whole back to school thing. Every year I get so pumped to buy new school supplies and re-invent my fall wardrobe.So I thought it would be fun to give you all a sneak peak of my back to school BACKPACK ESSENTIALS. I am generally quite a nosy person, so looking inside other people backpacks is fun for me…. am I weird?

What’s in my backpack.

I am in College now, so my packing for the day is a bit lighter than it was when I was in high school. I don’t have to lug around 4 textbooks, 2 binders, a lunch and everything else under the sun. For my schedule starting in September, I only have 1- 2 classes a day, so I have time to run home in between, letting me eat lunch at home as well as I can drop of books.

My planner.

Having a planner is super important for me to stay organized and to make lists. I am a little OCD when i comes to lists, but they help me organize my thoughts of what I have to accomplished for day, week etc.

Mechanical Pencils, high lighter, glue stick, stapler.

Am I the only one that can’t stand normal sharpener pencils? I just hate using them. Since I was 10 year old I made the switch and I can’t say enough how great they are. Having a highlighter is also important since it is very handy for every subject. A MINI STAPLER is possibly the greatest thing ever. With this you can skip the long line-ups at the front of the classroom. And just to let you know in college there are no staplers to be found so they are pretty handy dandy.

Handy, dandy notebook.

Having just simple notebooks like this for each subject can really help you stay organized with your notes for each class.

IMG_1549Hand lotion is one of essentials to carry in my back pack. I have very dry skin so this is always great to have with me.

EOS BALM

Having any form of moisturizer for my lips is essential for the fall and winter time. My lips can instantly get dry and cracked when I got out in chillier weather. Give this brand a try!

A pouch for your girly things.

Having any sort of a little pouch like this is essential if you are a girl. This is perfect to put your girl products in so you do not have to take your whole backpack with you to the washroom during class.

A healthy snack.

An essential that I carry in my backpack is always a healthy snack. I constantly am hungry, like a black hole. So bringing a snack with me, makes me lessen my chance of going to the wending machine for some chips. Blueberries are my favorite food ever what are yours?

H20.

Carrying a bottle of water with me at all times is essential for me. I used to not drink enough at school and get very bad headaches in the afternoon. Now I make sure to always have one with me, to stay hydrated and alert. Believe me it helps!

Loose Weight by EATING FOOD? My tips.

 

Good Morning Friends!

Yes you heard me right! The first step to maintaining a healthy body weight is to start EATING breakfast. Breakfast is not only delicious, but may also help you loose unwanted weight and cut your lunch time cravings. You may ask how is this true? By eating breakfast you are essentially “breaking the fast” of not eating when you are sleeping, this reduces our hunger by mid-day. By eating breakfast you are less likely to develop crazy unhealthy cravings by lunch time, helping you to eat a smaller portion at lunch and hopefully a healthier choice too!¬†breakfast 1Want to know how to make this easy, quick breakfast in the picture?

0% coconut creek yogurt, no added sugar

Protein Granola Chunks

Half a sliced Banana

A bit of drizzled honey

 

And I can’t function in the morning with out my coffee…. oh how coffee is my life! So I had to add it in the picture! This morning I am drinking Butterscotch flavored coffee!! So yummy!

 

What type of coffee is your fav?

 

I hope you enjoyed!
