Memory Jar

Ok I know I am so late with this, but I was out shopping the other day and spotted this jar so I finally decided to start a little memory jar for 2015. I bought this food jar from George for £1.50, which really makes this little DIY so easy and inexpensive to do. I've been seeing these ideas on Pinterest for so long now and they seem like such a lovely thing to have, especially when you're having a down day and you can look at all your happy memories from the current year. I know I have quite a bit of catching up to do but I thought to inspire any of you who have started or would like to start a memory/happy jar, I would list some of the things I will be putting into my own memory jar...

- Tickets
- Funny moments or happy memories written down
- Little printed photos (PicMonkey has a Polaroid effect that I want to use for mine)
- Objects from your travels (such as the pinecone I picked up from a beautiful hike in the snow)
- Lyrics or quotes that inspire or have helped you
- Packaging from anything amazing you tried
- A record of an achievement you've made (even if you just write it down)
- Compliments from anyone that really made your day

Let me know if you have already started or created a jar of some kind, and let me know anything else you put in yours!

A Little Storage Idea

Today I have something a little bit different for you all. I'd love to do more lifestyle posts here on the blog so I thought I would share a little storage solution that sits on top of my dresser next to my makeup mirror. I use it to store a few beauty tools and other bits and bobs, so I thought I'd share it as a little bit of inspiration as I am constantly trying out DIYs and different room decor ideas.

Winter Makeup Bag

Time for my seasonal makeup bag update and I have to say my makeup bag has never looked so empty. I think with the stresses of college which I always seem to go on about, I've just stopped caring as much about makeup. However I do still wear the stuff every friggin day and these are some things that are just essential in my opinion. 

What products are currently in your makeup bag?
