Pantry Organization

The other weekend I got into a cleaning and organizing mood. Not only did I clean the entire apartment (here) but I did something that I’ve been meaning to do since we moved in in June. I organized the pantry. Yes. I did it. And it’s now pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

I tried to put everything that belonged together, like baking supplies, snacks, spices, etc. into their own separate space in the pantry so they could be found easily. I also threw out things that moved with either of us and had been opened already like chips.

So without further ado, here is my masterpiece.

I’m still hoping to put some of this into nice labeled jars, like the ones in the featured image, but that’s a job for another weekend! Hopefully, this gives you some inspiration for cleaning out an area of your home that really needs to be done. What area should I focus on next? The closet? The garage? Let me know!

Apartment Wall Decorations

We moved into our new apartment about 5 months ago and just a few weekends ago we finally put up some of our wall decorations! For the most part, all this required was some wire and nails – we were just lazy for 5 months apparently. Here is what we have up so far, broken down by room.

What are some things that you have on your walls?

Makeup Collection and Storage

I don’t have a ton of makeup, but I thought I would share how I store the products that I have. I also posted a video on YouTube that goes more into depth about the specific products that I have. I love watching videos and reading posts about this – probably because I’m so nosy!

This is the desk where I do my makeup every day, so I keep my most-used products here. I have a small mirror that flips over to a more magnified mirror. This small shelf was a gift from my boyfriend and is super convenient to store small products and brushes that I use all the time.

Next to my desk, I have a bookshelf that holds the rest of my makeup. On the top I have a case where I store all my lip products. I also have a few drawers where I keep individual eye shadows. On the top shelf is primers, foundations, powders, bronzers, blushes, and highlighters. On the middle shelf I keep eye shadow palettes (large ones and quads) and extra eyeliners and mascaras. On the bottom shelf I have a box of nail polishes and paints and brushes for actual painting.

I try to keep things organized, but as you can see, some areas could do with a little more organization (lip products)! Make sure you check out my video to see me describe the products in detail!
