Make up Storage

I got the names completely wrong here! Muji is the affordable storage website. The expensive stuff is The Clear Cube! Apologies.

Quite a while ago I’ve noticed this craze for Muji acrylic storage drawers. Youtubers and Bloggers were paying crazy money for something (that to me is a bit of plastic) because Kardashians have it? I don’t mean to offend anyone here. Off course people can buy whatever they want and for whatever price they want but Muji prices are ridiculous.

Saying all that I have to admit that the storage looks great and the whole ‘mix and match’ really is a pretty good idea.
I was so excited when Vipxo did a post on affordable acrylic storage ideas. I immediately went on ebay and purchased one of the sets.

It’s made out of two parts. One being the drawers and the other lipsticks/misc. compartments. I keep them together but the option of separating them is there. I have to say it doesn’t hold that much stuff and the drawers aren’t very deep (won’t fit two compacts on top of each other in most cases). But it definitely tidied my dressing table. Lots of everyday use bits and pieces like eyebrow pencil, mascara or foundation have their own little home and are quick and easy to reach for in the mornings.

Here’s where I bought mine – click.

What do you guys think about this kind of storage?

Essence Nail Polishes

Since Essence is not available in the UK I picked few of these lovely nail polishes while I was in Poland.
They cost only £1.30 and the quality is great! Two coats are enough to give opaque finish (Cotton Candy being the exception as it could do with another coat).
I find the formula perfect to work with – not too runny or too thick. The brush is pretty good too – flat and slightly curved at the end which seems to work very well with the shape of my nails.

Staying power is very good too. I only tried one colour so far but it started to chip only slightly after 4 days and that was without the top coat.

From right to left: 113 do you speak love?; 111 english rose; 130 what's my name?; 131 ballerina's charm; 05 cafe ole; 04 iced latte; 03 cotton candy. 

I highly recommend you to try Essence polishes if the brand is available in your country. To me this is an amazing quality comparing to the price.

Mountain Day Trip

Last Friday my parents took me to Ustron, lovely place in the mountains 1,5 hours drive from where they live ( I am visiting them in Poland at the moment). Weather was absolutely gorgeous and views were amazing.

Cool thing was that my mum dug out some old pictures and found the same snap shot from 1982 with my brother before I was born and all of us from 1996. Off course we again took the same picture last Friday.

Added: It turned out the proper one done by the photographer is missing from 1996 :(
