I have been tweeting all day about how I have spent my Sunday re-organising and having a bit of a clearout and I have to say I have bloody loved it. As nerdy as it may sound, I love having a good rummage around; finding old favourites, passing on things I no longer want, making everything looks neat and pretty and generally getting rid of any clutter. My room is definitely on the small size, so I like to make sure that I use or wear everything that I own – if I haven’t used it in the past 6 months or so it gets given to my sister or a lucky friend – yes my housemates at Uni always used to love it when I had an organising sesh ;) Now my room is more or less so done with being decorated (bar a few soft furnishings here and there), I have my new vanity so the majority of my day was spent sorting through my makeup and skincare….
Organisation heaven baby ;) I used the cardboard drawers from my old WHSmith drawer storage box to divvy things up, so everything is easy to find and finally I can see all my makeup is front of me and ponder important questions like ‘what blush/lipstick combo shall I go for today’ – yes really! There will definitely be a ‘Makeup Collection/Storage’ video coming up soon and perhaps even a blog sale of bits that I no longer use, who knows. Anybody else love organising as much as I do? Come on I know there must be some of you! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
Much Love,
Vivianna x

    My top drawer is full of make up too! I have divided mine up with old GlossyBoxes.. love a bit of organising :) worried the drawer may collapse one day though as it is full to the brim! x

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oooo that is a good idea – might have to get my old GB’s out too! xx

  • FeeneyFooFoo

    I'd totally LOVE to be as organised as u, but for some reason it illudes me!!!


  • http://www.stylefake.com Georgia Lee

    I lov organising but mostly clothes. There is nothing better than having my clothes all sorted in to categories and my bags all neat. It’s kind of sad but its really therapeutic. Hate sorting other stuff though, like kitchen cupboards :|


    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Haha so true! It is very therapeutic! xx

    I absolutely love organising stuff – be it my draws to my life lol! I plan to have a mamouth session once I finish work for the Christmas break next week – can’t wait (does that make me sad?) XX

      Haha that is the thing isn’t it – finding the space! xx

  • Sarirah Hamid

    I am an organisation freak. haha. This might explain why I have an obsession with packing and repacking suitcases. I had a light bulb moment earlier in the week for a good way to store my makeup products in my drawer. This then set me onto redecorating my dressing table (which really is just the table of my chest of drawers). I love reorganising and finding new uses for things that I have stored around my room. :D

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Oh wow I think I have found a fellow organising lover ;) xx

    I love organising things as well haha! As soon as my assignments are out of the way I’ll be re-organising and clearing things out. I wish I had room in my bedroom for a dressing table :( maybe when I finish uni I’ll get rid of my desk to make room for one :) xx

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Good luck with your assignments hun! xx

  • daisylane

    I love a decluttering session too – infact I’ve just taken a break from one to catch up on some blogs! xo


    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      Good idea to treat yourself to some blog reading ;) xx

  • Boscy

    I generally spend at least one day per weekend organising and re-arranging furniture. There is absolutely nothing better, in my opinion. I despise clutter and absolutely love clearing things out and making sure everything I own is orderly and able to be appreciated. When there is good music (or audiobooks!) to be listened to there is nothing more relaxing than a good old clear out x


    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna

      That is such a good idea! xx

  • The Faerie Glen

    I recently got new storage and I love nothing more than organising =] is it sad that I sometimes just go into my room and look at the storage etc haha xx

  • Lipstick-Fridays

    I adore organising – I too just re-organised my make up last week – it’s really quite satisfying being able to find things quickly – I find organising helps clear my mind xxx. http://lipstick-fridays.blogspot.com/
