OH my goodness! that drawer is something! wow! I've tried the bare minerals products also and not sure about them......maybe i'm not using the proper sequence or something? Maybe you could post a tutorial! Will all that product you must know what you are doing! Thanks for the other tips...will have to check it out!


what inspiration!! i love what you have done with your drawers!!

the containers that you used are just perfect. you can see where everything is located and where it all belongs.

thanks for sharing your beauty routine. i have been trying to find the perfect skin regimen for my problem skin, havent tried bare minerals though! love love love the lip gloss from b and b.

take care,

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Wow! Would you come over to my house now and do mine? Pretty please?....Actually you have motivated me...I have been in the mood lately to clear out, toss out, etc...

p.s. come to my blog. it's my 100th post and I am having a giveaway!


Oh, I love organization better than anything, almost! I am so the same way as for keeping things nice and straight when I can see it...but, my drawers, cabinets and closets...another story. I, too, take time to do this job about twice a year. I know...shame on me, but if I can just close the door, it doesn't tend to make me balistic.
Your drawers look fabulous!


I love your drawers. HA!! Sounds weird now that it's in writing. Anyway - I can guarantee mine would never last longer than a few days looking like that.

I love Bare Minerals. Isn't it just the best?? I can't even bear thinking about all that goop on my face anymore.



Thanks for sharing the pictures! It gives me inspiration to tackle my own make-up drawer. I also second Robin's comment above that you should do a tutorial. I use proactiv and bare minerals foundation but would love to know more about the other products and in which order you use them.

Bristol @ Cottage by the River

Allison- Your a better person then me to tackle that. I have wanted to try bare minerals. CO Bigelow Lip shine is my favorite!!



Hi Allison,
Everything looks amazing. I love Bare Minerals. A Bare Minerals botique just opened in our mall.Yay!
Doesn't it feel good to be organized? I need to do some of that too.
Thanks for sharing,

Angela (Cottage Magpie)

I'm not sure which I'm more excited about, the organizational loveliness or the awesome product recommendations! I have been wanting to try Bare Minerals for awhile now but haven't gotten myself to the store yet... I think I will do that this week! I've been told that it would be a good choice for me because I have very sensitive skin. One question: what do you do for daily sunscreen, if anything?
~Angela :-)


What can I say - WOW - so neat and tidy, job well done.


Oh, Allison!!

We are soul sisters!!!! I just know it!

I'm the same way with cleaning. I love a clean house, but I've been known to put up with a messy closet or drawer if I don't make daily contact with it.

And the Proactive and bare minerals? Me too!!!! I just joined the bare minerals club online instead of going to the MOA for my product and I just got my first blush and eyeshadows. Oh. My. Gosh. I love those eyeshadows! Oh! And the lipgloss! LOVE IT!
And, I bought some Proactive a month ago and accidentally threw away my cleanser (I can't find it, so I think it must've toppled off my sink and into the garbage). My skin is an absolute wreck! I think I will start ordering the Proactive online, too.

Wow. This is a long comment, huh?

Anyway, that was a fun post, I'm envious of your drawers :)


Daisy Cottage

Okay, can you come do mine???? ;-)

Everything looks wonderful - love your new, sweet Shabby Chic container too!!



I just love organized drawers and closets! My drawers are good right now, but you've inspired me to tackle the closet!
I use bare minerals too, and love it! I've never tried the rare minerals at night, have some brown spots, will have to give it a try!


Hi Allison,
I'm in awe of your organized drawers! Please come help me organize LOL! Would you mind sharing more about your skin care routine? I have adult acne as well and have been trying all kinds of combos to beat it.


Oh I love that Arbonne's Nutrimin C line. I've been using Loccitane' and my esthetician gave me a sample bag to take home and try Arbonne because she sells it in her shop. Wow! It is the best stuff on the planet...and I told myself as soon as I ran out of my current supplies I would start using it. Pricey, but it's worth it. :)



Doesn't it feel great to get organized? I'm pretty good at cleaning out drawers & getting things in order, but before I know it, they're out of whack again. It's a constant battle for me to keep them looking good. I put all my makeup in a tackle box. It's handy & stores out of the way.

I also love Bare Minerals, great products. I'll have to check out the Rare Minerals, that sounds interesting.



Good for you! You won't believe it, but I have today off and cleaning my bathroom drawers is on my list! I have no storage space in my bathroom so it is really hard. Maybe I'll do a post on mine too!

Have a wonderful week! Sharon


Okay, head this way-you can tackle my drawers next!


Wow, you have a lot of goodies! You are right, its so satisfying to open an organized drawer & look at your handiwork for awhile. You are reminding me that I need to tackle my closet soon.....


Ohhh a fellow Bare Minerals lover! I'll have to try the Rare Minerals. I'm familiar with it, but haven't invested in it yet.

(I've been stalking your blog for awhile and you finally dragged me out of lurkdom.) :)


Looks like you have been busy, organising it top of the priorities here at the moment.

Wow, I hope you realize you're putting the rest of us to shame with this kind of organization. This is a great idea. Making mental note now. I love the toile storage container too. I love anything toile. Great pictures.


Hi Allison. Which Bare Minerals product? The Skin Revival Treatment?

Love your organized drawers!



Wow, that's impressive! I love that lip gloss also, it tastes so good doesn't it? :)



Everything looks great! I, too, have been in an organizing mood the past few months and it feels great, doesn't it? I love the feeling of seeing everything together...just in it's right spot! :) I would LOVE to try bare minerals! i have only heard good things about it..although, it is kinda outta my makeup budget right now..but maybe someday! :) I hope you are having a wonderful week :)
