I bit the bullet. I had been thinking about this silly little ceramic tray ever since I blogged about it a month ago, and it’s my personal mantra that if something is eating at you after a month, it’s meant to be yours. I’m not normally a frivolous person – some might say I’m a bit frugal (aka cheap) so I sometimes have a hard time purchasing things that I don’t necessarily need. But, nonetheless, today I purchased my little white tray – just incase it wasn’t available after another month of pining.
My bathroom makeup regime is actually quite simple. I’m a no nonsense kind of girl when it comes to makeup – concealer, powder, and mascara, and I’m one my way. I have a makeup bag that contains other products like eyeshadow, lipstick, etc. but I realized that I didn’t need to have those items at the forefront 24/7. Too many products all the time = too much clutter!
Bleach. It’s like my bathroom cabinets regurgitated last years products on my fine 1980′s shell-sink and countertop combo (hey, blame the previous owner on this monstrosity). Plus, the makeup bag just wasn’t necessary, and the bag’s arrangement caused my mineral makeup to always spill. Something had to be done – for my sanity, and the safety of my makeup. A major dilemma, people! So, on my way to pick up Scott from work, I pounced on the opportunity to swing by West Elm and see if my ceramic tray was still there, waiting for me to swoop it up – and lucky for me, it was.
Look at that organized countertop and obsessive compulsive tray! A lovely site, isn’t it? The simple white tray was enough to keep my makeup messes at bay and to make my Friday afternoon that much sweeter.
On a side note, can I just say how much I’m loving West Elm’s new line? I’m not a complete modernist (I like a little mix of Modern and Transitional) but some of their new items are so super fly. It was a good thing that Scott was waiting for me to swing by his building this afternoon or I may have done some damage. Not really. I’m cheap, er, frugal. But maybe I’ll do some damage in a month if I’m still lusting over some of their new accessories. Check out the goods!
Hello, beautiful pillows. Gotta love the Moroccan inspired patterns. And how about these mini lamps, in the same cool blue and punchy terra cotta colors?
And what about this fun chair print? A store after my own chair-obsessed heart.
Drop by your friendly neighborhood West Elm and enjoy the new eye candy. And pick up some of the goods for this frugal gal and her thrifty wallet.
