For years I've lusted after one of those expensive metal vanity cases, the ones that are like suitcases and open out with about eight trays. The type that a make-up artist would cart about. The reason I never got one was because I didn't really have the space on my floor to keep it and they aren't the prettiest. I have the girliest bedroom with powder blue and lilac walls with white and silver ascents. My carpet is purple and I have an abundance of duvet covers in pinks, lilacs, purples, floral and heart prints. A few years ago I found a small clear plastic vanity case in the New Look sale with make-up inside the trays.

Along with my bird cage and trinket boxes for jewellery, candle holders, candles I have my big WHSmith storage drawers, a small metal 3 drawer system and a basket of toiletries.
The drawers inside my storage contain the following:
So that is everything! Such a long post but so much to show if I was to do it properly. I love the way I've set it up and although I dream of having endless drawers I can't keep track of everything I have now and it would just let me buy even more to fill the drawers!
