Why SLGs Are Great and What I Use It For















Small leather goods, otherwise commonly known as SLGs are not only useful but also can be an affordable way to start your luxury designer items collection. I remember perfectly, the first luxury designer item I purchased was a Christian Dior Long Wallet. They are functional and are not as expensive as buying classic designer bags. So if you have a limited budget to play with, SLGs are a great place to start.

Beauty and Makeup Wish List


 
No matter how happy I am with my beauty and makeup routine and collection, there are always a number of beauty and makeup items floating within the beauty and makeup market that make me itch wanting to give them a try or to add to my almost insatiable love and passion of beauty and makeup products. Don't get me wrong. My current skincare routine is working very well for my skin and it comprises of products that I cannot live without. Not only that, following from my recent makeup reorganisation, I also know that I have more than enough makeup to last me a lifetime. But there are still so many products on the market that I haven't tried! #firstworldproblem

While I have gotten better with the concept of delayed gratification, I still struggle to let the desire to procure them go completely. I guess if you can't take your mind off it after so so long, it is probably time to give it a go? So today I thought I'd share my beauty and makeup wish list.

Makeup Storage/Organisation and What I Learned From It


Happy Easter! Whatever you have planned for today, and whether you're spending Easter with your friends or family, I hope you're having a fantastic time.

Easter is often associated with new life and a new beginning, regardless whether you are celebrating it based on your faith or not. A change in season also springs to mind (pun intended) as daffodils start making appearances in parks, gardens and the neighbourhood. If you are anything like me, you often feel the need to reset your life (it sure feels like a second new year) and declutter your possessions.

And that was exactly what I did on Good Friday. Not quite the full-blown Marie Kondo method, but simply throwing away old magazines that have been accumulating dust underneath the coffee table and some unused plastic containers in the kitchen.

I recently purchased the silver and brushed blue chest of drawers from Brissi. It was my first purchase from the brand, and I am very delighted with both the item and the service. As soon as I set my eyes on it I knew it will be the perfect set up for my makeup storage/organisation. I've been in the market for one for a very, very long time and I have been very adamant not to get the standard unit from Ikea as I wanted to find a piece of furniture that is not only functional but also has a bit of character. This chest of drawers which is from their China Club/Shangri La collection and is inspired from the old Chinese screens' patterns is absolutely perfection, and definitely ticks off my requirements, with an added bonus as it was on sales too!

When it arrived I was beyond excited and pretty much started my makeup storage/re-organisation/decluttering process almost immediately. Today I thought I'd share my five take aways from the organisation process.
