A Beautiful Mess

No you didn’t do anything wrong to me, and there’s no reason for you to see this ridiculously tangled mess…


But hey! Wait and see until the end. :)

If you are an accessories lover like me, you might understand the pain (refer picture above) that i’m going thru; which happens every now and then.

i knew i had to sort this mess out, but tidying requires some kinda mood, you know? ha ha!!


i used to have all my accessories chucked into 4 of these boxes / trays. Then came a sudden realization that accessories aren’t cheap. In fact, sometimes they cost as much as a dress!

Having that said, it is only fair that i give them equal treatment.


i, am gonna move the 4 trays of mess, and reduce the space into 2 drawers; like what you see above.

This space was previously misused too, with my extra makeup stuff. Now,


TAA DAAA!!! 8)


Oh well, my camera lens can’t fit the whole stretch. Therefor :


This is Box A – where i keep all my dangling necklaces; categorized to Fairy Tale box, Hippie box, Silver & Gold box, and earrings.

Here is a blog post by Sakura Blossoms on how to make a DIY jingly jangly earring board. ;)


Box B is where i store all my bracelets; categorized the same way as the 1st. i noticed that i have a subconscious liking for feathers. lol~


And finally, my dressing drawer is tidy. i’m so glad i finally did it! Now i can accessorize my outfit & makeup all at one go, baybeh~! :D


Here’s a nest of cupcake lip-glosses and Dior eau de toilettes.


After tidying The Mess, i lit up some scented candles in my chamber for a more romantic ambience, and took a long hot shower.

That’s how i remind myself about how good life can be sometimes. What about you? ;)
