Cleaning and Orgainizing – Master Closet Part 2

So I just realized I never added the ‘after’ pictures from doing the master closet. Which explains why I had it sitting as a draft. So here is the finished product.

Okay so I pulled put the maternity wear, things I am not finding comfortable, and I replaced the hamper. I looked everywhere for a nicer one with the two separations. I did not find what I was looking for or anything reasonably priced in my opinion. I’ve quit looking for a hamper for Missy and I am just using one of the sections for her. I just have to find one before she moves into her own room.

I did have to remove the bin of seasonal clothing. This hamper is longer than the last. Which means that the bin no longer fits.

I also switched our Missy’s cl9thes since she grew :(. Rhings have just been straightened up really. I do have to get the sheets up top organized better. I can still easily locate sets so I am not worried about it right now.

Medusa’s Makeup – February 2018

This is very much a late review of the subscription but they have not sent out Marches yet. So, better late than never.

I was quite excited again when I seen the products for this month. This first one I used immediately.

Toner – Rosè All Day $12.95 USD

I have not used a toner in quite a long time. I am getting older and should be putting this back in my routine. It does have quite a strong rose smell but wears off quite quickly. The mist is fine enough that I do not end up with extremely wet drops in some areas. I added this to my evening skin care routine. I have not yet seen a difference mostly because I am not quite in the habit of using it yet.

Lipstick – Lolita $12.00 USD

So to start excuse the very dirty hair (wash day is on the way) and it’s late. My skin is gross and I am clearly not wearing any other make up.

When I first opened the tube and initially swatched it, I was concerned it would be very dark. This is why I also applied it. It is not as dark as I thought it would be. The longer I wore it and taking a second look at the picture I really do not mind it.

Eye Dust -Desert Storm $8.00 USD

I am going to start drowning in neutrals here soon. This brown in nothing like I have though. There is a fine glitter in the pigment. It has a purple/blue shine to it. Which you cannot make out in the photo.

The top swatch has primer underneath and the bottom is on bare skin.

Totally Baked – Stoked $9.00 USD

This was the one I had the least excitement amount. I do not use blacks or dark greys often. Which is why I was not really feeling it to begin with. I must say this applies beautifully and it will be my go to instead of black. It is a dark grey but it still feels light enough and just the way it moves.

The top swatch is done over a primer and the bottom swatch is on bare skin. You can make out a difference with the eye dust but with this one the difference is night and day.

Clearly this was not included but I used Too Faced – Shadow Insurance eye primer. I also applied the swatches with a brush. I did this as I realized you do not get a realistic idea with finger swatches.

I said I would give them three months and then decided where to go from there. March will be month three. Let’s see if they win me over for a while longer!

Things Have Been Crazy

As I start typing this Missy has fallen asleep on my lap. I do not quite want to move her and yet I have posts that need to be typed and posted. So I am going to find out how well I can do this from my phone (hopefully autocorrect does not decide to kick in).

I have atleast one cleaning and organization post ready to go. Should have a second one right aways too. I also received another Medusa’s Makeup package to review. I have a thousand other ideas running through my head.

Im going to go back and update some of the reviews also. I also have a million things going on whole taking care of this little girl here. Let’s get a move on with it now!

Cleaning and Orgainizing – Master Closet Part 1

Now this area is not dirty but I need to go through and organize it.

It is well over stuffed. All of the maternity clothes are still in there and clothing I bought when I thought I was going to nurse. I have also started to pull out pre-pregnancy clothing. Finding that some of them I really just do not enjoy.

Normally every spring and fall I turn all my hangers around after switching my clothes out. I will be able to do this in the spring but since I was pregnant for the fall and half of winter I was not able to give that system a work out. I have to do my best guesses at this moment.

Medusa’s Make-Up – January 2018

I have been trying to get to this review for about a week now. After trying out the lipstick from Medusa’s Make-Up I decided to check out their website again. I noticed that they do a monthly subscription. To me that is perfect since I did want to try other products. Plus if I got fun colours that would be easier than trying to commit to buying them individually. They offer both monthly and yearly. I always check the math on it and it worked out to be the same price. I also did not want to commit to a full 12 months because that may end up being overkill for myself.

I paid $27.16 CAD ($20.95USD). This includes the shipping and a processing fee. Unfortunately it was not broken out on any of the receipts so I am not sure how much the box was itself. Shipping was $5.00 and rate increase to $10.00. I will keep it for another month but I may end it at that point. It seems fairly pricey to me for a regular subscription.

First item I pulled out was a setting spray. I have not tried this yet and now I have a few different ones. Cost is $10.00USD

Here we have the Metallic AF Lip Gloss in Hells Bells. Now this has some pretty good staying power. I have yet to try it on my lips. I am not wanting to sport the full metallic so I need to practice my ombre look before wearing it out. Very nice pink colour though. This is $11.00USD

I did swatch this but you can hardly see it in the picture. The glitter is gorgeous though! It is a gold irirdescence called Star Wars. The cost is $8.00USD. No idea how I am going to use this but I will find a way. Plus this pot will last a lifetime it looks like.

Another neutral colour but it has some nice sheen to it. We have Mystical Eyedust in Chrysaor. Very happy with this colour and it is also safe for all other applications. Happy that I will be able to try this out on my lips as well. Having dual purposes makes me feel better. This costs $11.95USD.

I will admit despite the raise in shipping I am looking forward to what will be received in February. I probably would have never bought the glitter. I also would have stayed away from the metallic lip glosses. This is why I like subscriptions.

Also before I forget. They are vegan and cruelty free. While I do not force myself to only buy items that fall under those terms I do look for them and favour those products/companies. I also want to note they are PETA certified and not Leaping Bunny certified unfortunately.
