At Home: My Dressing Table





Instead of the usual 'The Sunday Post' today I thought I'd kick start my At Home with Little Red series with my most requested post, my dressing table. I get a lot of questions asking where my dressing table is from - it's from Dunelm Mill and comes with a matching stool - bargain. My mum bought this for me for my 21st birthday and I couldn't take my eyes off of it for the first few weeks that it settled itself into my bedroom. I really love the floral design seen above of the drawers, around the mirror, and down the legs of the table. I just think it's beautiful!

I like to keep my dresser quite neat and tidy and try not to clutter it with cosmetics and such, so that's why there's not lot of snaps of my makeup collection - that's being saved for it's own specific post! In my dresser drawers I keep eyelash curlers, scissors and tweezers on the left hand side, my blogging notebook in the centre drawer and then just my daily moisturiser, lip scrub. and Origins Super Spot Remover on the right hand side. I like to keep only the essentials on display with everything else housed in my IKEA Alex. Keeping everything minimal helps me concentrate when typing up my blog posts over here.

My main selection of brushes that I tend to reach for everyday are kept in a cute butterfly design pencil holder from Paperchase. I also keep my MAC Lipstick collection on display in an acrylic stand that I found on e-bay, I like to have these visible and they're my favourite go to lipsticks. I also keep out my Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm and a pot for my bobby pins and hairbands to try and keep on track of them as they have a tendency to go missing...
I also keep a mini house shaped chalk board next to my dressing table in order to jot down any blog post ideas or products that come to mind. Super handy and very cute!

So there you have it, my favourite bedroom addition - what do you think? What would you like to see from my At home series - makeup storage and collection?
