Update - Nail polish storage, makeup storage

Clockwise from top left:  IKEA Expedit, Stila Kaleidescope Palette, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and Eyes to Kill Mascara, IKEA Ullgump rug, and a new Tall Alex.

This is just a little update to tell you why I haven't been posting!  DH and I had a fabulous time in Minneapolis - a little too fabulous to be honest!  We shopped up until the very last second.  I made it home Sunday night with only 10 minutes to spare before a meeting at work.  My poor husband unpacked the Jeep by himself.  Every single cubic inch of the jeep was filled - mostly with IKEA furniture!  And a lot of stuff from HomeGoods, which we don't have here in Iowa for some dumb sad reason.

We actually went to IKEA twice - once Friday afternoon and once Sunday morning to pick up something we forgot.  We stood by the exit door waiting for IKEA to open so that we could hit up the As-Is Room before breakfast.  MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER TO GO TO THE AS-IS ROOM on the weekends first thing in the morning - all of the previous days returns were there and marked down!  We got the Expedit (pre-assembled!) for $65 and the super cute rug for $13.00.  I wasn't even looking for a rug, but I think I am going to love it in my makeup room!  

Please excuse me if blog posts are light this week.  I've spent every moment I'm not at work on assembling furniture.  We still have several pieces to go, but last night we worked on the Tall Alex and I am so excited to fill it up!  But I forgot to buy my favorite drawer liners, so it will take longer than I planned.  I can't wait to get all my polishes together, right now they are spread around my room and sometimes I have a hard time finding what I am looking for.  Let me know if you want to see an update of my room once I've finished!
