First official Post!

Im currently blogging to myself, as i haven't started following people etc, im not really sure what your supposed to do as ive never got this far into blogging!
     Amazingly ive managed to make my blog look vaguely pretty, and as you can see my favourite colour is PINK! 


I thought that  i would start off with a post showing a bit of DIY i got up too over the weekend, recently i have moved back down South to my parents house so that i can start my new job.
       I found that i had nowhere that i could really put any of my bottles of creams and shampoos etc, so i found some old shoe boxes etc which i thought i could transform into pretty boxes to hold and organise my stuff for free!

In the bright pink box i have stored my straighteners, curlers and crimpers! The only styling tongs (i think you call them this) that i have, im saving up for larger curling tongs as we speak :)
       In the Other box i have just random things like face creams, body butters, shampoos etc. You probably think its strange that i keep these in my bedroom but i like keeping my things all in one space and also my mum and sister would probably use everything up real quick.

 I used my acrylic paints which worked really well as it covered up most of the markings on the shoe boxes, on one of the boxes i ripped out a section so that i could see more clearly when im trying to find something that i need.
     I no that my paintings of flowers are awful but i was being really inpatient and rushed it all! Whoops!
On this shoe box i painted the lid pink and the main box white so that it has a really pretty effect. My sister had also previously stuck a load of sequins on the box and instead of picking them off i just painted over them which i think looks pretty good, you cant see it very well in this picture though, let me no if you want a picture which shows it more clearly.

Ive put hair clips etc in here and a few bracelets, id prefer it if i could see these on show so that its easier to choose what to wear and to feel like i have a choice if that makes any sense?

Over all i no i haven't done a grand job but it sure does brighten up the spare room im using at home for the moment.
Im only staying here temporarily as i'm waiting for my boyfriend to come home from Wales as the rent isn't over until March :( BOOO!

Have you got any ideas for free alternative storage options?

Lots of Love
Willow
