Orange and White + Crafty Usable Project!

Hello Darlings!

Ive been a little late in the day with posting the last few days because I have so much going on at work I keep falling behind ;-( anyway.... Yesterday I had a 'MOMMY DEAREST" moment, LOL and started freaking out over clutter in the kitchen, clutter in the bathroom just CLUTTER!!!

Clutter drives me nuts so I pulled everything out of the cabinets and rearranged, purged and reorganized and now I feel so much better. If my house is not in order I CANNOT THINK. 

While I was cleaning my bathroom I remembered seeing something on pinterest (I think) on a cool way to keep my make-up handy because I don't like keeping it in make up bags (they get messy) so off to target I went...Crafty Project Details & pics below ;-)

Get The Look...

Forever 21 Orange Floral Top (similar) HERE or HERE / White Leggings (similar) HERE / Necklace (gifted) similar HERE or HERE / Bead Bracelets and Bangles (old) Forever 21 / Wedges (old) similar HERE or HERE / Clutch BCBG (similar) HERE or HERE







Crafty Project!


hubby actually did the work, I watched and took pics, LOL

Candleholders (we used 2) / Bowls (2) Ceramic, Glass or Plastic / Gorilla Glue (dried white kind)
Glue candle sticks together / glue to base plate / glue rim of upper candleholder and glue bowl

Jewelry/Make-up Storage ;-)

  13. Great idea for make-up storage, especially to put in there the ones that I use the most! I see you have nice hair, why keep it short and not let it grow longer? I'm just curious, thanks.

  37. Lov the orange floral shirt and that is such a creative diy make-up holder. I always wonder how people come up with stuff like this. I guess I am not creative because I would have NEVER thought of this nor all of the jewels I find on pinterest and other blogs.

    Thank you for sharing all that you do with us.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is so cool!! I need something like that, not sure if the glass would be good for me since I have a 3&4 year old who loves make up just as much as I do LOL
    i love the idea im gonna find a way to make it work for me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this orange floral top on you and what a creative diy make up holder. I'm telling you, I dont know how you or or all of the people on pinterest come up with recreating things from one form to another. I am glad that you do!

    Thank you for sharing yourself with us. I know this must take a lot of time out of your day and sometimes thankless.
