Possibly the BEST Make up Organization Solution…

Creative organization solutions are a fascination of mine. All over my house- a smattering of strange hangers, wall pockets, homemade bags and plastic dollar store bins. Honestly, it’s pretty awesome. However, there’s one thing I had yet to get quite right…

I was in desperate need of a handy way to store my makeup. I had the classic “crammed makeup bag” syndrome. Technically, everything fit in my bag, but only if I perfectly stacked everything back in a specific order and orientation, Tetris style. Just not very convenient when I’m in a hurry to finish my look before a night out and I have a pile of products strewn about, expecting to be tediously placed back in my bag before I leave.

By a stroke of genius (or should I say by scroll of Pinterest) I came across this clever solution and I knew it would be perfect to suit my needs. As a bonus, it’s on the cheap. I made use of some items I already had around the house only spent $10 on the rest of my supplies. Read on for how I made this cute magnetic makeup organizer and other stylish beauty storage solutions.

What To Do When You Lose Your Domain

aka A Letter To My Future Self

 Don't freak out So, you’re a content creator and let your website’s domain name expire. Or, your blog has been unexpectedly deleted, or you’ve lost access to it. Maybe you were using it for years. Maybe it had tons of backlinks and SEO. But now it’s gone. You dun goofed, and consequences will never be the same.

Hey, that was me. I had sunk 3-4 years into my blog under a .com domain, spending hours tweeting and pinning and posting to promote it. But then the domain expired and I didn’t know how to renew it. Someone bought my domain from under me and now it’s a blank page, presumably where ads would load if it wasn’t so glitchy. While my posts were preserved through blogspot and the website still technically exists, in my eyes I had lost everything. All my business cards had my old website on it, my resume, tons of internet posts. And now it will absolutely have to be changed. I’ve spent the last year ruminating and stewing about it instead of writing, almost out of spite for myself. But I’ve finally come to some conclusions and I’d like to share them with you, too.   

What can do you do now that you’ve screwed up?
