Sunday Sparkle

I’m really bummed (and sorry!) that I haven’t been able to post a lot this week. Aside from the fact that most of my products are in boxes (read why here and here), this little guy has been keeping me busy.

I've been babysitting round-the-clock while my sister is away!

I’ve been babysitting round-the-clock while my sister and her hubby are away!

I’ve been taking him to school, putting him to sleep, trying to get him down for naps—and all while working. Seriously, I don’t know how moms do it. Everyone in my family is pitching in to help also, but between that and moving, I haven’t had time to sit in front of the computer. Haha, I enjoy giving him my undivided attention too much.

Here's how I get him to nap. Hahaha, don't tell his  mom! I don't think she'll approve of my sleep mask. LOL!

So while he’s asleep in the afternoon, I do work stuff or try to move into my room. More progress has been made and I finally had my first night in the fabulous “Sparkle Suite” (yes, I’m calling it that, haha!). After not being able to sleep in my own bed for over a month, it felt really good to have a whole night to myself.

Well somebody's happy! Haha, I finally have my own space again.

Well somebody’s happy! Double yay for having my own space again!

After my first night, I realized that I have to start unpacking. Workers have been going in and out of my room to fix a few things, but if I’m really going to be honest, I’ve been procrastinating. There’s just so much to unload—especially when it comes to beauty products!

I was hitting my "decorating" limit, so I called in a little help! Say hi to my not-so-little brother, RG :) He was kind enough to assemble my office chair for me.

Of course, my white office chair had hand prints all over it after he was done (boys!). Haha, I had to scramble to wipe off the stains and tried my best not to freak out! My room is predominantly white, so I’m trying not to get OC about it having to be spotless. P.S. It’s not working! I was sweeping the floor when at 2 a.m. because I found dust bunnies.

And now the real work begins! Unpacking all my boxes with my fellow beauty addict, Veda!

But here’s where the real work begins! Unpacking all my boxes with my fellow beauty addict, Veda! Basically, the stuff here doubled once I unearthed everything.

Here’s a confession for you: I’m super OC, but I’m not big on things being organized. As long as everything is contained and where I want them to be, it doesn’t really matter if my things are packed away haphazardly. So when Veda offered to help me categorize my beauty products (thanks, Veds!) and make an list of all my products, I was super happy! The only thing left to do now is organize everything!

So now that everything has been sorted, I'm looking for makeup organization inspo on IG—like this one from @elimy88.

Look at this glorious display from @meka_meeks! It all looks so pretty!

The makeup room of @asimplehedonist looks pretty awesome, too! I want those drawers!

I’ve still got a lot of work to do, so if you guys have any leads (or links!) about how I can organize my makeup, leave them in the comments section below! I could really use your help!

P.S.
I’m working on a post about the hottest trend in makeup right now—strobing!! Drop by the blog tomorrow to check out my easy techniques on how to get this look! ♥
