New Spring Beauty Storage

New Spring Beauty Storage

On Sunday I popped into Ikea - straight up madness on a Sunday if you must know. I have never seen so many children in one place and I have four brothers and two sisters. For inquisitive minds I merely popped over to the other side of the city for a desk but as most do walked away with an armful of products I have no intention of purchasing. Isn't that always the way? As I have recently acquired a lot of new beauty storage (Ikea purchases aside), I thought I'd share bright and often affordable ways to store your cosmetics.

Habitat Karena Multi-Coloured Storage Boxes £35
A few weeks ago the lovely ladies at Birchbox kindly gifted me this beautiful stackable, storage solution. In my opinion it looks more like a piece of art than your run of the mill storage box outlay. Admittedly it can be a little frustrating having to lift off each box to recall what I have placed inside but if like myself you enjoy something a little unusual then this may be just what you had in mind. On the plus side each box is fairly deep (they do vary somewhat in depth) and hold a substantial amount of products. I personally like to keep my boxes in the bathroom with all my daily essentials as it isn't as obvious in style as say Muji.

Muji Acrylic Storage from £6.95 - £24.95
Speaking of Muji storage for the longest while I had a good few sets of their acrylic drawers and then passed them onto my younger sister purely because I didn't find them to be all that practical. A few days ago I was kindly gifted a single Muji Acrylic drawer (£7.95), I have found it to be the perfect fit for on my bedside table for all my evening skin care routine bits and pieces, it is nice to have everything in one place and not have to route around for my lip balm, hand cream or serums. I knew there was a reason why such option has been favoured by bloggers and beauty junkies alike for quite some while.

Skurar Plant Pots £1.90 each via Ikea
Touching on blogger favourites I couldn't leave Ikea without a few Skurar Plant Pots to pot my brushes in. At the moment they are house in various jars and holders which don't truly match - less than attractive. On a whim I purchased the pastel plant pots opposed to the white variety, in hindsight that may have been a mistake as I'm not really a pink kinda gal nor is my home colour scheme. Most likely I will spray paint them in the coming weeks but for less than £2 they more than serve their purpose.

Fortjust Candle Holder £2 via Ikea
Lastly for on the desk a.k.a the reason I went shopping in the first place I purchased a little glass trinket bowl. I say bowl it is in-fact a glass candle holder, I plan to use it for popping a lip balm, a few hair grips and a tube of hand cream into. 


If I do bite the bullet and take the step on to Youtube I will film my make-up storage/collection in full, I know a few are keen to see my set-up. I make no promises though ha!

  14. The Habitat boxes look great, although I'd probably use them for jewellery rather than products :) x
