Things had to change.
Enter the Kallax desk from IKEA. For years I had always assumed when I eventually got round to putting all my beauty products in the one place it would be via a set of Malm drawers. They are the ultimate in beauty blogger storage... Right? Not really. The more time went on the more I realised that, for me, out of sight is out of mind. I do not need stuff hidden away in drawers. I need things slapped in my face or else they may as well be dead to me. The Kallax was perfect for this. The open shelves and sizeable desk mean I can have a fully kitted out beauty station. A one stop shop for when I'm getting ready in the mornings and evenings. The only things it doesn't contain are my nail polishes (I'd need a whole new Kallax for that) and my bathing products (they'll stay in the bathroom, obviously).
As you can see from the photos below its still not quite there. Although all in the same place it's not ideal to keep using empty Glossybox boxes and lids as a means of product type segregation. The ultimate plan is to acquire some clear acrylic storage similar to the famous Muji shelves. I know, I know, I'm such a stereotypical "blogger" but they really are perfect!
Now that I have everything in the same space I feel much more at peace with my beauty regime. I'm no longer running around the house to find different products and, much to my shame, I'm discovering products that I've bought but never used (more about that pricey habit later). And there I give you my little piece of organised chaos. It's been a long time coming.
