  1. Look at all that Chanel polish you lucky girl! I can't wait to see your whole apartment–I bet it's adorable! I don't have a vanity (sad) but I have a cute place to hold my cosmetics. It works for now!

    1. i may have a bit of an obsession... once the place is unpacked and decorated more i'll take lots of photos! :)

  2. Seriously jealous of your make up collection! I think I need to step mine up ;)

  3. i wish we were neighbors so that we can get dressed-up to go out together -- you have the ultimate 'getting ready' place :) lucky girl!

    1. that would be amazing!! you can come visit anytime and we can get dressed up for dinner and drinks :)

  4. Your makeup collection is to die for! And I checked out the vanity - SO cute! I have a vanity, but don't currently use it ... it doesn't really "go" with our bedroom :(

  5. I dream of having a vanity - you have a beautiful make-up collection! I'm so glad things are going well in your new apartment :) xx

  6. Oo I love it - esp. all the Chanel of course :) My makeup collection seems to have grown exponentially since I shared on the blog... now I'm looking for the right stacking solution because the acrylic trays are just not enough!

  7. So cute! I'm obsessed with EOS lipbalm too! Though mine keeps mysteriously disappearing...I think Craig is taking them from me!

  8. Stila Kitten is my all time favorite eyeshadow! I've been using it since college!!!

  9. Having a vanity was a must for my new apartment! I love your collection- so jealous of all the Chanel

  10. i love this. it's so much better than my drawer full of makeup that i never use!!

  11. So organized! And I love your pieces! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I have the same makeup organizer. I just love it. Everything is in one place. I love your make up collection- I could never afford it (Chanel wow big bucks) but am glad your able to indulge. Have been lusting after that two faced bronzer all summer but its to expensive. Congrats on your new place! Well Done
