The Great Fall Clear Out: Clothes Edition

Hello lovelies!! Today I am sharing what I did to go through all of my clothes. This included my purses/bags, undergarments and socks which I do not include photos of. Like I said in the introduction post of the series, I am trying to apply the Marie Kondo method of cleaning out. She suggest to stick to a category rather than going room by room, but my bedroom is my primary focus. I have two closets six drawers of clothing to go through. When you see the after photos you will see that I got rid of a lot. I had 1 bag of purses/bags and 3 bags of clothing. Almost all items were donated to charity or given to friends and family.

Before:

During:

I emptied out both closets and drawers all out onto my bed. I then picked up one piece of clothing at a time and made my piles.

After:

Once I went through everything. I felt light and accomplished and really love everything that I kept. You’ll notice that you can see everything hanging in my closet, which I really am enjoying. As far as the drawers go, I finally accomplished the task of fitting all of my t-shirts into one dresser drawer. I was also able to go down to 5 drawers instead of 6. (More room for beauty products, haha)

Well that is round one of the Great Fall Clear Out. What do you want to see next? Let me know! Have any of you recently done a clear out? I know this is a popular thing to do when spring comes around, but I like to do this a couple of times a year. Subconciously I think that I moving sort of toward a more minimalist lifestyle. That is all for today. Have a great week!

Project Pan Update #2

Hello lovelies! Today I am updating you on the products that I have been using as part of my very first project pan. I’m just going to say it…I am horrible at using the things that I own, especially when it comes to hair products. I do have to say that I have done a little better than the last month. I have made some more progress on a few items. There are no new products that I finished.

To review, I have finished the Vaseline Spray & Go in cocoa radiant and the Garnier Blackhead Eliminating Scrub.

img_1960I’m almost done with the Aussie Sprunch Spray, NYX butter gloss inĀ  creme brulee, Blistex Silk n Shine lip balm, Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Tropical Mango, and the Smashbox eyeliner in Onyx.

img_1961The rest of the items, will hopefully be done by the end of the year. I have made a little progress on the Marc Jacobs perfume and it’s a 10 leave in conditioner. The Buxom lip gloss, I have used easily 10 times in the last month and there is hardly any progress. It looks as if I haven’t used it at all.

That is all for this update. I will hopefully have used up a few more items in my next update. The goal is to use up at least 10 of the 15 products by the end of the year. I am on a no buy as well til next year. Bring on the hauls in 2017! I hope you enjoyed this little update. Have a great day and see you in my next post!
