How to Arrange your Wardrobe & Accessories?
I logged on IMBB (my daily routine –morning ritual) and saw the Ask IMBB question of the day “How to Arrange your Wardrobe”. And immediately I was swarmed with various ideas that I wanted to comment down. Then I thought these ideas cannot be penned down in the comment section they need a separate article.
I have a small room, so I am hard pressed for space. Instead of cribbing I decided to make the most out of it.
I’ve decided to write about it in two sections.. This one deals only with how I keep my Accessories & Make Up ..
The next one will be how I keep my clothes.
I bought this open shelf cupboard for 1000 Rs. from a small local furniture shop.
I was in dilemma over to buy a closed shelf or an open one. I bought an open one because not only because its pretty but also I would be forced to keep the area clean. 🙁
The cupboard has 5 sections.. So here goes the split-up
Behind the cute puppy toy lies (1.) some boxes containing pretty shoes that I wear for Special occasions. Next to it you can find (2.)One giant box, actually those are shoe boxes which I have attached together to make it a Lingerie box .. he he he. One shoe box contains Bra and the other shoebox contains panties .. ☺
I have my clutches containing money, ID card, etc. Next to it I have a bangle stand. In the middle I have two marble statue – two girls in chairs, behind there was a Mirror which I broke (7 yrs of bad luck ☹). Behind I have two glass jars. One glass jar contains all my lipstick, lip balms & gloss while the other glass jar contains rubber bands, scissors, tweezers etc. There’s a comb, compact and a eye shadow palette. Also a small book I maintain to use when I log on IMBB. ☺ ☺ ☺
The plastic blue jar contains some gold & silver jewelry like rings, chain and anklets. I kept a separate container for them so that I don’t loose them.
The third section has
- Deodorants at the far right corner
- Powders, Oil, Scrub next to it.
- In the middle there is a wooden tray which contains things that I need on a day to day basis. It contains facial wipes, The Body Shop make up remover, Ever-Youth face-pack, Marks & Spencer nail and hand cream, Biotique face pack, toner, J&J cream, some lip-balms (Lotus), Toner, Elizabeth Arden Red Door perfume, Dove Body silk cream etc..
- There’s wooden box in which I keep broken earrings, chain & beads etc. ☺
- Upon it are 4 big plastic boxes. I keep (a) Artificial jewellery (b) Electronic gadgets like I pod, wires, blue-tooth receiver, pen-drive etc. (c) nail polishes (d) bindi’s, clips, slide-pins, safety-pins. Above it are two small plastic box which contains things I take daily to my college/office and the other plastic box contains eye shadows, blushes etc.
- In the middle of the wooden tray I have a plastic tray in which I keep my earrings. I got this plastic tray from a chocolate box, Ferrero Rocher. I ate so many of this chocolate that I had lots of boxes left , I had an eureka moment and I decided to use them to organize my earrings. Since they are clearly visible and each earring has its own small pit I never have problems ☺ ☺
This shelve contains
- The pink bag contains facial wipes, cleansing wipes. Cotton balls, surgical gloves, etc.
- The giant plastic box contains things that I would take out only on a week end, like curlers, body scrubs, hair wax and other stuff for which I could not find a better place.
- The black box contains things that I don’t want people to see (read sanitary napkins and stuff)
- The metal and cardboard boxes were gifts ☺
- The smaller flat box I use to take things when I go out for vacation. I have taken a photo of the box. This covers everything that I might need on a vacation. It is compartmentalized so I don’t need to spend time on organizing ☺. I including some items I forgot to take photo
