Finally settled in!

Last night, I unpacked the last box of books and organized them on the bookshelf in the livingroom. Which means, we are officially all settled in our new house! The garage still needs some organization, and we still need to get an extra couch for the livingroom and a bed for the guest bedroom, but we'll just slowly take care of those in the future. This weekend I'm making the bf organize all his tools that are scattered everywhere in the garage...*sigh* boys...

So today, I am posting a much belated post to show you guys what my new vanity area looks like :)

I bought the vanity table from IKEA from the MALM collection. The matching mirror fits perfectly with the table and the two sides could be folded inwards.

From left to right on the table, I have: body care products, face care products, body sprays/perfumes that I use most often, makeup removers/alcohol/hand sanitizer, Q-tip and cotton pads, my vanity mirror that lights up when you tap the base, face brushes in a Hello Kitty container from the bf for my birthday, eye brushes, a clock to keep me on time in the morning when I do my makeup, hair brushes, and finally, hair products -- all neatly organized in their own containers/baskets :)

The big drawer pulls out and the inside is divided into 4 compartments and all lined with felt trays. The left most tray holds some travel brushes, Kleenex, face wipes. Second one on the left has my Everyday Minerals foundations (which I haven't been using recently after I started using BB creams), and eyeshadow palettes. Then there are my nail polishes and nail care items. The right drawer holds hair stuff -- hair bands, hair ties, and some jewelries that I use most frequently. I love how big and roomy these drawers are!

Then under the table I have a blue drawer where I put some hair tools, extra cotton pads and Q-tips, extra brushes, and new makeup stuff that I have yet to play with. The white drawers contain my makeup that I use everyday.

Since I was lacking a good chair tall enough for me to see myself in the mirror (the table is really high!), last week, the bf went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and got me this cool looking bar stool that is perfect height for the table :)

My Q-tip container! I was browsing through the Japanese store a while ago and the bf found this for me! Isn't he good at spotting cute stuff for me? hahaha...It's perfect, it's pink, it's a cute piggie that reminds me of Edna cuz she loves piggies :p, and it already has my name printed on it! It's made for me! hahaha

Isn't this the cutest trash can ever?!

And finally, sleepy Mia says: "I love my new home, g'night meow!"
(Look at where her leg is! Doesn't she know it's stinky to put her foot right next to her head?)
