So yesterday turned out to be very productive for me in terms of unpacking and organizing my makeup collection. Yes, I'm unpacking my cosmetics before I've fully unpacked my kitchen. ;)
Seriously though, I've been making a lot of progress and am happier with my new setup than I've ever been in the past. I just got a new vanity and acrylic storage, plus I have vanity lighting on its way to me! Finally I feel like everything has a place and I'm truly proud of my setup. So today I thought I'd share a bit of my progress in a potentially new segment on this blog titled "My Instalife". What better way to show you what I've been doing than through my habitual Instagram usage?!

I've decided to invest in a few new items from Shiseido for my skincare routine. Prevention is key, right?
I got a bit crafty yesterday & repurposed several used B&BW candles. This one now holds my lip balm/stain/gloss pencils. Makeup as decor? Heck yes!
NARS And God Created The Woman Set: swatches w/o primer. This Sephora exclusive, limited edition set is high quality & great for wearable day to night looks. The included primer is a fave too! Should I do a review?
My new acrylic drawer set. I couldn't be happier with it! So functional & displays everything quite attractively too. I will be doing a post in the future all about my new setup with details & photos, so stay tuned!
I've been seeing a few posts on IG showing products with MAC's special packaging from past collections & thought it looked fun. I own a couple things from a few different releases, shown above. MAC has some of the best limited edition packaging for their big collections. Love it!
Two of my most favorite makeup items: Creme Rouge blush in Evening Rose & lipstick in Cherry from the Estée Lauder Mad Men collection from Spring 2012. These products embody the 60's & make me feel so glamorous. I absolutely love Mad Men & 60's makeup & fashion in general, so these won me over instantly.
The top photo is the same as the previous photo with a different effect (taken by me). The bottom photo is the promo image from the Estée Lauder Mad Men collection for Spring 2013. Is that not the most gorgeous packaging you've ever seen?! *swoon* I can't wait until this releases (supposedly next month), & I'm thrilled about the Mad Men season premiere in April!
