You might not believe me, but I bought a small pouch to hold all of my makeup, on purpose.
There are a lot of things one could put into their yoga/gym bag. Multiple water bottles, fancy rep timers, a towel (or three), a shower kit, hairspray, protein bars, a tin of soup, feminine products, makeup, homework, running shoes, a cell phone charger, iPad, headphones, etc etc. This year, as a part of my New Years resolution to be more active, I decided that I wouldn’t make “getting all of my stuff together”, an excuse for not getting out of the house. I’ve tried to make it easy for myself by simplifying what I take down to the basics.
I love seeing the inner corners of other people’s makeup and skincare storage, for want of inspiration. (I know I’m not the only one). There’s something about how people keep organized that intrigues me, and makes me excited to go and do the same.
As a student one of my favourite things to do, come September, was fill in my planner. I could spend a few hours happily writing in friend’s birthdays, national holidays and family celebrations. Then came the course syllabuses, and more dates to neatly include. You bet your bottom dollar, I’d be home right after class writing down dates!
