The Vanity Case of all Vanity Cases - PIC HEAVY

Good afternoon m’ ladies! Just a quick post to show you what Darren ♥ bought me last week. He was getting fed up of all my make up spread over the spare room bed and rightly so really, it did look a little messy. 

This baby is a 6 n 1 jobby, I got this one mainly because you can carry 1 drawer on it’s own, 2 drawers, 3 drawers or use it as a trolley. I bought it from Ebay.

The top drawer has a combination lock on which Darren ♥ set up for me, if I’m honest it’s not the best of locks and if someone wanted to get in it I’m sure they could. This is the perfect thing for me right now, the spare room isn’t the biggest and I was taking it over with my make up/hair products etc. I still like to think of it as my dressing room. Haha

Bottom bit has band things for brushes but they're not tight enough to hold small ones, probably wouldn't have used it anyway. I have my curling wand, GHD's and tongs in the bottom.

First two little drawers, foundations, eye lashes, eye liners etc

next two drawers lip sticks/glosses. Nail clippers, scissors, tweezers etc

Big drawer, sponges, eye lash glue, old brushes, brush guards

bottom box, eyesshadow/palettes/whips etc

2nd box up bronzers, blushers, highlighters (this is a bit empty ;p)

Top drawer has my everyday stuff in

So from this (below)

To this (below) 
 Isn't she a beaut!

Later on whilst admiring my new vanity box I realised I had made one fatal error in asking Darren to set up the lock on the top box for me, I have nowhere to hide my purchases! ;p

Happy hump day my lovelies!


  1. This is lovely :) Much less messy :) xx

  2. Awwwwwwww! So cute of him to get you this! :) I like my make up hidden in the drawers, but I usually forget what I have and end up with the same or similar stuff (happened few times - e.g. The Body Shop eyeliner ;) ). X


  3. Wow, that box is fab!!! I have a pink one I got on ebay and this one totally puts it to shame. Look how tidy it is at the end too, bet your chuffed!!! x x

  4. Love this! It looks so neat and organized, and it's huge - lots of room for makeup! :) xxx

  5. Mine is exactly the same, but black. I love it!!!


  6. I've been waiting a traincase like that! One day!!

  7. haha woahhhhh oh dear that's huge o___o haha! I love it! (: It was nice of him to buy you this!

  8. i really reall need this, my box is breaking with the amount i stuff in it for make up jobs!

  9. @Ik - Thanks hun x

    @sophie-leigh - Thanks Soph, can't wait to get a proper set up though xx

    @Lauren Rose - I agree, since setting it up it's been ok too, haven't been tempted to spread it over the bed! xx

    @Pandora's Box - =D x

    @Mademoiselle Lala - I know, it was driving him crazy though. Yeah I don't doubt that might happen to me x

    @lalalucy1000 - They had it in pink too but wanted £8 more for it, I though silver would probably work better in the room x

    @Glimmer and Glow - It's growing on me I must admit, it's nice to be able to see the bed! lol xx

    @Lala Makeup - They're good aren't they, loads of room! xx

    @D.Sadie - Go for it, loads of room in them x

    @mimi - it's a beauty, I know he's a good boy x

    @Arabian eyes - I like the idea that you can carry 1, 2 or 3 drawers on they're own, that's plenth of room for make up for jobs! x

  10. You did a fabulous job doll!!!Love it!so neat and perfect!!


  11. Yay! I just bought my first ever dressing table for the same reasons, it looks so much better now :-)

  12. Love the before and after pics looks so much better! haha great buy xo

  13. @Blushingloves Irene Greece - Thanks hunnie x

    @Lucy - Beauty and the Blogger - Agreed, I shouldn't have left it so long! x

    @Hannah - haha, I had to show how it looked before, it was a right mess! x

  14. Oh God this baby is sooo beautiful, and definatately space saver, Lovely :)


  15. @Fakhra's - Thanks hun, I've got used to it now, can't believe how I used to have everything over the bed! ;p x

  16. Thats such a great idea! Its really good for transport but it looks really pretty too :) xx

  17. Great idea for storing makeup, especially if you wanna get into makeup artistry!

  18. Woww...this is so amazing!!! :)


  19. Woah, impressive makeup collection you have there! :) rachinald.blogspot.com :)

  20. omg this one puts my more expensive beautyboxes.com one to shame!

    It's perfect for me, unfortunately my one doesnt have the drawers at the bottom which I find SO handy..
    I need to invest in this one.. but would you say its suitable for makeup jobs to travel with? as in, is it sturdy enough to carry and trundle along bumpy/rocky roads?? please let me know!!



Thanks so much for your messages girlies, they make my day! xxx
