Wardrobes can be a woman’s best friend and worst enemy.
I’ve had a few emails asking to see my wardrobe, and it’s nothing special in comparison to some other wardrobes, but the contents of that wardrobe is something i’m gradually becoming very proud of.
But, there is one thing that I cannot stand, and that it is clutter. I can’t think, I can’t focus and I can’t make decisions, therefore a messy wardrobe is not an option for me.
Above are photos of my wardrobe, which may look a bit messy to you, but to me, it is an organised haven of possible outfits and accessories!
I literally have everything hanging in an order… By memory it goes
- Newest pieces
- Plain T-shirts
- Printed T-shirts
- Open/Button up knits
- Knitted jumpers (Organised by brand)
- Active Wear
- Sentimental pieces that can’t be flattened into a box
I know, It sounds almost OCD, but it’s not, in fact, it’s actually one of the best systems I could have thought of. I can literally get ready in record time, and when i’m out organising an outfit or shopping, I can picture everything I have, this way I can make sure that I purchase things that will will go well with other pieces that I already own.
My shoes used to be in a massive pile on the floor until I converted an old TV unit into a shoe rack and organised everything, same with the bags, they were in a small box, but I couldn’t even deal seeing my bags out of shape, crumpled, without even being able to see what I have.
Sometimes your ‘Wardrobe malfunctions’ are literally due to the state of your wardrobe, and I can say that from experience!
Yes. That is Iron Man on the right, and yes, that is Logan Lerman, One Direction and the Jonas Brothers on the left. I am a fan girl.

When I first immersed myself in the glittering world of makeup, I said to myself that I would only use “the best” of brands and products. At the time, I mostly saw makeup as a time consuming burden… I had just turned 16 and was never a massive fan of painting my face.
On my 16th birthday, I decided that I would use my birthday and christmas money to go on a shopping spree, and I had a long list prepared, and at the time, American Apparel Disco Pants were #1, but #2 and #3 were the basics of every girl’s makeup collection: Foundation and a classic red lipstick.
I chose M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid in NC25 and Chanel Rogue Allure Lip Colour in 104 Passion. At the time, the foundation cost $49 AUD and the lipstick cost another $50. I’m about to state the obvious, but that came to a total of $99, not mentioning the extra $10 I had to spend on a foundation pump that the foundation didn’t come with. At the time, I felt like I was ballin’ because not only was I working most days of the week (during summer holidays) but my birthday and christmas fall within 13 days of each other, so $110(ish) didn’t seem like a lot.
Now days though, I definitely do not have the luxury to spend $49 on a foundation, but I ran out and desperately needed a replacement, and all I could spare was a very minimal $15. I felt like I was going from Tiffany’s to Target, but instead, I went from M.A.C to Rimmel… and I liked it.
Thanks to a friend’s recommendation, I tried the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation in 200 Soft Beige and found that I got a good coverage, no irritation and a natural looking shade! The foundation applied easily, was smooth and was long lasting. I must admit that I was very impressed; I bought a $15 foundation and was happy with it?
It was like the cosmetic gods were looking down on me, and graced me with a quality foundation for an affordable price!
One thing that I did notice, however, was that the Rimmel London Foundation required more than one pump and did make my skin become oily in the T-Zone. This isn’t much of a problem, as throughout the day my skin felt smooth and comfortable, and the oiliness would go away with some concealer or primer underneath. I also noticed that I didn’t need to use primer with this foundation.
A few weeks later I also purchased the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealerwhich visibly helped my skin with a regard to coverage. I don’t have the best skin, so finding a concealer that actually works isn’t that easy, but with Rimmel Wake Me Up,I was pleasantly surprised. At the RRP of $14.95, I purchased it for $12 at Priceline.
So, Inside my pretty pink makeup bag (which over time has become fuller and fuller due to a small obsession with cosmetics, specifically lipstick) is Rimmel London’s Wake Me Up Foundation and Concealerand I couldn’t be happier with the quality for the price!
Some of the best for a lot less When I first immersed myself in the glittering world of makeup, I said to myself that I would only use “the best” of brands and products.
