Clean Up, Clean, Up, Everybody Do Your Share...

.

Anyone remember that song from Kindergarten??? :)

Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I had lunch with my girlfriend, and then we went to IKEA to look at some storage solutions now that the BF is now a roommate! I got a shirt from Steve & Barry's that says, "I heart Makeup" (I think it's the exact same shirt as Sis Ren's shirt), it was just too cute, TRUE, and above all..$9!


*Also some of you asked me on my last post whether UD (Urban Decay) Eyeshadows are that pigmented, and YES they are! They are super pigmented and easy to put on since they are powdery soft, I actually like them more than MAC eyeshadows because I don't have to use as many swipes to get the color I want.

In case you are wondering, it's from the Urban Decay Palette I bought last year (Click this link for the original post and swatches).

So now that the BF is a permanent fixture, I had to make way for HIS stuff, and that meant me having to organize all my junk. The way I clean and organize is tearing the place down and then clean and organize it, bad habit rather than doing it one section at a time, but nonetheless it works for me!

So here is my once clean room:






And this is how it looked last night...like a tornado hit me!



So we went to IKEA, and I bought some drawers with nice clear frosted window paneling to store all my accessories, I had to assemble it which was fun (I actually like assembling things, it's like a neat puzzle! LOL)



I love the drawers:





Assembled and Complete!





I also bought a clear vase to put my brushes in:


Stored all my junk like my bracelets and necklaces...


Makeup Palettes...


Pigments, Single Eyeshadows...




Lippies & Lipglosses:



Blushes:



Bought those hanging organizers for the closet:



Didn't organize the purses yet...


I was tired! I didn't sleep till 4am! All I know is that the BF better have a newfound love for me....LOL.

I love looking through your stuff. And you have such an amazing place.

Love Steve and Barry's - sometimes they have the cutest stuff. I like the Bitten line by Sarah Jessica Parker, but they sell out fast.

Vanessa said...

Thanks Anonymous! I love Steve & Barry's too, I mean sometimes it's hit and miss since you're right, they DO always sell out fast of the good stuff so I usually end up leaving empty-handed, but I love how cheap the stuff is!

That shirt is just too cute! Did you happen to notice what sizes it comes in? I love how things look when they're neat and organized :)

i LOVE your white vanity + mirror! i'm currently looking to buy a new bedroom set and i have yet to find something that remotely looks like that. do you remember whereabouts you picked that one up?

mayaari said...

ah, I love IKEA...and the Container Store :) that new dresser/nightstand is cute!

Vanessa said...

Trisha, I think they had S, M, and L, but the sizes run REALLY small, I usually take a S, and got a M, and the M was too small!

Vanessa said...

Anonymous- I bought it 3 years ago so I don't remember where, I bought it directly from the manufacturer in Washington where my parents were moving at the time, and my mom bought furniture from this one place over there and they recommended me to another company and I just paid a lot to have it shipped here to Cali!

Maayari- Thanks! I have all white furniture, LOL, I want color, but I figure white is pretty "safe".

Michelin said...

I, too, have a strange love for putting together furniture from IKEA. And the bad habit of tearing everything apart in order to organize... I love your new drawers, but I'm especially jealous of your vanity. I wish I had room for one, but I don't, so I have to sit on the floor to do my makeup. It's pretty sad.

Lani said...

cuute shirt! and i love your room! messy or not lol :)

jennylo710 said...

hey vanessa!! i loveeee everything about your roomm! <3 i was just wondering where did you get your vanity table cuz im looking around for one and yours loook the best from what ive seen so far :)

said...

I really like those drawers. I need to find myself some storage solutions as well. And that's the exact way I clean my room too lol, I completely wipe off my vanity or dresser and throw everything on my bed, then organize it again. It gets overwhelming, but at least it works.

Askmewhats said...

Hi vanessa! I've been consistently reading your blog! Super informative and super nice!!! I love the way you organize your stuffs and I am super organized, so looking at your stuffs done neatly makes me oh so happy :D

Keep up the great blog! I enjoy it , it is my daily desserts :D

Nic Nic said...

i love ikea!! you did some good room organizing!
I love your dressing table, it's fit for a princess! hehe... i wish i had one!! lol.

Taryn said...

Do I spy a Care Bear pillowcase? So cute! I'm a Grumpy Bear fan myself. :D

I give you credit for putting together the cabinet. My one adventure in self-assembling was a disaster. I still have the rickety bookcase to prove it!

Beauty Review said...

Hello gorgeous!
I have a quick question that you might be able to help me with!
I recently bought the EoB duo brushes... which obviously are double ended. How the hell do I store these? I dont want to store them in a cup like thing with my other ones bcause I will damage one side of the brushes. What should I do?!

MakeupByRenRen said...

I love wearing that shirt with a pinky coral colored wife beater underneath b/c it can be kinda sheer and the coral picks up the pink in the heart :) way to get organized! my organization sprees take a whole night too...b/c once you do one area...it's like you have to do the whole thing...way to go!

CuttiBeBe said...

oh I know the love and pain living with a bf. Though my bf is not fully moved in, he comes down to stay 3-4 days at a time every week or so. It was like pulling teeth when I gave up two drawers and 1/4 of my coat closet to him. poor guy, he's a XXL and all of his shirts are huge, yet with so little space to store them.

i love having him around though. whenever i get lazy, which is pretty often, he can pick up the slack. laundry, walk the dog in the morning cold, or carrying the grocery, love it. a very useful XXL, =)

gotta love IKEA!

nilla cookie said...

I swear, girl, I'm taking organizational tips from you! SOO organized, I love it!

And too cute that you and the BF live together now - congrats! :)

christianadivine said...

damn! look at all that makeup, i'm JEALOUS of your stash! :D and that shirt is SO awesome. i want that shirt. haha. :D

soFresh & soPink said...

Hey Vanessa! I just love your blog! I was organizing all my makeup last night, and was thinking of a cute way to keep all my brushes together. I love the vase idea. I'm going to have to make a quick trip to my IKEA. Keep up the fabulous posts!

slvrlips said...

I'm so needing that t-shirt. Very cute !! And love the storage drawers. I love IKEA but hate having to put the stuff together.
Have a great week!

Liz said...

haha! Ikea! how I hate assembling things.

I once assembled an Ikea table, i got calluses afterwards. :-p

nai nai said...

WOW the sour apple is GORGEOUS!! and this look i prefer more than #1 hehe both are way cute though!

Bl0b said...

Your room is like a store. T_T

Askmewhats said...

I'm a big "organized fan" so you just can't believe how much happy I am to see your post :D

Mrs. Lynne, MakeupFix.net said...

Love the drawers sis! I'm a huge Ikea fan!

I love IKEA! I was so pissed when I found out there was none here (of course!) and above all that, they don't ship (bastards!). So Hubbo and I bought all we could and shipped our crap out here. I love having breakfast there sometimes. The other meals not so much, but breakfast is cool and cheap, hah.
