After Gem and I had finished one of our Gym classes last week, we decided in our infinite wisdom that we would “pop into” the local shopping centre to purchase some new Gym wear and obligatory red and blue yoga mats. Unfortunately, this meant we were unsupervised and within reach of a variety of shops where we could easily spend all our pennies. We do have a habit of going a bit crazy when we are both together, but it does mean between the two of us, we manage to find some ultimate bargains. One of many last week was this adorable little toast rack which Gem spotted in B&M a cheap and cheerful “full of everything” shop on the local high street.
Although this isn’t much use to me as an actual toast rack – it is the absolute perfect size for storing all of my palettes!
I love having things on show on my dressing table – but I like this to be in an organised manner so that when I am getting ready, I have everything to hand. This is probably one of the most adorable things I have on there and for a bargain price of £1.99 it was more than justifiable considering you can spend at least £20-£30 and more on acrylic make-up storage – so next time you are in your local “odds and sods” shop – take another look at some of their bargain items and see how you could use it for other means!
Have you picked up any weird and wonderful items recently that you’ve used for storing your make-up?
Totally hellbent for shopping with my bestest Gemma
