Organizing is one of my favorite things which may seem weird but it’s true. Every time I saw an acrylic case I always thought it was too expensive or too impractical until now. Let me explain the impractical side first; when it comes to acrylic it can easily scratch and always needs to be tidy if it is clear. Perhaps not always but for myself it honestly needs to have a system rather than just throwing items into drawers as it becomes a decor piece for the room it sits in. Once I was fed up with the way I was storing my items I decided it was time to try out the acrylic case, use up more vertical space and stop with the endless display of bags and boxes.
Before buying an acrylic case definitely shop around for the perfect one for you. What I mean by this is will your items fit that you wish for it to hold. Items may require larger drawers or smaller drawers to keep items neat and practical at the same time. Your makeup brushes may be too large for a little drawer, either way, go in with a game plan of what size you need. For mine I knew I wanted it to carry both jewelry and makeup so I opted for the taller one with both small and large drawers.
In order to keep from scratching the case itself it needs to be lined. Some cases come with precut fabric to line the drawers but not all of them do. If it does not have them it is an easy diy project so do not let that keep you from getting the case you love. Simply grab some fabric at the local craft shop, flannel is a great option as it does not fray as easily as cotton and is a bit thicker. Next pull out each drawer, trace the bottom of the drawer with a pen on the fabric, and cut it out. Although I opted to tape my fabric pieces down in the drawer you can also glue or simply place them inside the drawer. For messy items such as makeup brushes I would recommend leaving them on top or using the fabric float method to avoid an annoying mess that is difficult to control.
Organize with me below to see exactly what I put in each drawer of my case for ideas.
A cluttered space is a stressful space especially when it comes to the craft room. When there isn’t an organizational system in place it can be frustrating and take up valuable crafting time. It may even cause you to double buy since you cannot find it, thus it is costing you money as well to have a cluttered craft area. For those who are lucky enough to have an entire craft room, it may be easier to keep clean or easier to gravitate towards a massive collection. Whether your space is big or small these tips can be utilized.
Before I even received a Cricut machine all I wanted to do was create pretty, unique stickers for my planner. People who say they are too old for stickers I will never quite understand. Anyway, everyone made it look so easy on their tutorials so I thought it would be just as smooth for me. I watched multiple tutorials and thought I was overly prepared to say the least. After spending weeks creating designs for my first stickers the machine showed me who was really in charge. So, you want to make stickers?
Finally, the Cricut box has made it out of the house which means yes a bag review of course. After doing some research I realize that the Cricut branded storage option wasn’t the optimal one for me. Although the brand’s bag is heavily padded and appears to be of good quality there were two things that had me searching for alternative brands.
First off happy new year! To kick this year of blogs off I wanted to highlight my favorite winter outfits. All of these looks are cozy, cute and affordable. I have provided the brands/ companies, however, there are no direct links since these styles are pretty popular. If you have any questions, leave a comment or send me a direct message.
Eco friendly products have been around for a while and still I have yet to try any. Similar to other popular items, there always seems to be a settle label “tax”. For instance, items that never had any gluten are suddenly sporting a gluten free sticker and a shiny new price tag. All the fashion trends seem to follow a similar formation of how to raise prices when the demands rises to increase it’s business.
Magazines, Pinterest, YouTube, and even the various people we cross paths with on the street spark inspiration for new trends, different styles and all things fashion. Recently, it has been brought to my attention that several famous youtubers and social media gurus spoke up about the fact that they buy items simply to use them as content. Fashion hauls are a huge part of this massive consumer issue of want, want, NEED. Titles such as “spending too much at Target” or “massive summer hauls” draw in a large crowd but why?
Yes, I’m going to be completely stereotypical for this Father’s Day D.I.Y. only because this is something mine would actually use. No matter if you make this for dad or for yourself, it is very affordable. I came across this idea when I was searching for a tool roll store after store and kept coming out empty handed.
Recently, I have been obsessed with shopping the clothing section at Costco. The deals are unbelievable but what about the quality overall? Whenever you shop no matter what the price tag says, there are a few things to check to make sure the tag matches the item’s quality worth. The type of material, origin it was made in, stitching and dying process all contribute to the actual garment’s quality rather than just paying for the brand itself.
As a member of the curly hair club I wanted to share with you five trendy hairstyles. These will all work no matter what your hair type is however, I am trying them all out on my natural curly hair. All of these styles were experimented on day two hair. Dirty hair is easier to work with than day one when it comes to styling at least. All of these looks are practical since each one keeps your hair out of your face while still being effortlessly on trend.
