A CHEAP PRETTY THING FOR YOUR DRESSING TABLE!

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 1 - 2013

If I had a penny for every attempt I’ve ever made at making my beauty collection look both pretty and organised, I’d have at least eight pence.  I’ve given up trying because the two aspects of beauty storage appear to be mutually exclusive and I prefer knowing where everything is as opposed to getting stabby every morning while I look for an eyeliner.

Having said that, I know that many of you adore the pretty things in life and in all honesty, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything more pretty than this…

OK, so it’s a cake stand (a very lovely cake stand) but can’t you just see it filled with bathroom beauties/nail polishes and the like?  It measures 43cm tall and contains three generously proportioned-yet-space saving baskets.  If I’m honest, the styling totally doesn’t fit with my decor even though I’m hugely tempted to get it as a fruit bowl.

And the best bit?  It’s currently only £8.95 (reduced from £23.95!) in the sale at DotComGiftShop.

Oh… go on then!

    I used to use one of these to organise my make up! A little tip would be to line the bottom (I just used cardboard) as things tend to slip through the holes :)

    Great minds think alike. Mine has been on my dressing table for a couple of weeks now. It’s taller than you think and holds loads. xx

    Just ordered one of these, it doesn’t really go with my decor either but I loves me some storage!
