Sorting Out My Life: Post-Move, Post-Disso.

I'm finally at the bottom of my checklist. With my postgraduate dissertation handed in on Monday, and my move two weekends ago, I've dwindled down my 'to-do' list to finding a job. Amidst all this, organising and unpacking in the flat has been pushed to the back of the list, but I thought I'd do a quick post on what my set-up has been like, and hopefully, what it will be like in the future :)

Skincare Cupboard


This is probably the most organised (ish) part of the house. We've luckily got two cupboards so Ben isn't limited to the 1/16th of the cupboard that I could make free if I struggled! The top shelf contains body/hair/other tall products, the middle has full-sized products and oils, and the bottom shelf has tester or smaller sized stuff. Surprisingly, I've been using mostly the bottom shelf recently! My most recent exciting find is the Origins A Perfect World Moisturiser with SPF 25.

Vanity-ish Area



We were lucky enough to have all our furniture come with our flat, and this chest of drawers has been serving as my vanity. No no, not ALL of it is full of make-up - just the one drawer you see there :) And yes, Glossyboxes pretty much did all my make-up moving for me! I hope to organise the contents depending on the type of product, but I think I'll be using them as separators just like this :) My most recent exciting rediscovery has been the MAC 187!

That's pretty much it for beauty I'm afraid! We've got loads of bookshelves in the living room that I've been putting books including beauty ones in, and I've picked up a clear file and a notebook to organise my blogging after reading this great post by Amy.

My camera at the moment is on a break as my card reader has been sat on by a certain male occupant of this flat (ahem), but luckily said occupant has a camera himself so that's what I've nicked and used today!

I hope you guys are well - I'm off to wish Lisa a happy birthday, then to go see the athletics finals at the Paralympics! What are you all up to? :)

  1. Moving is always such a pain...I'm in my 3rd year of uni and have moved only twice so far; I avoid it all costs haha! Your skincare cupboard has some great stuff in there, love Origins x

  2. I actually really want one of those bathroom mirror cabinets, all of my things just pile up on the counter and although I swear I don't have THAT many things, it always looks super messy.

  4. There's so much to do when you move into a place. I've been living in my place for about a year now and let me tell you there were things I wanted to get done then, which still need to be done now. Takes time to really settle in but we'll get there. Good luck with the job hunt hun.
