organizing your bathroom

I believe that the little successes need to be celebrated too.
Sometimes just accomplishing one tiny task can make a word of difference even if it's just to you!

I have been making gradual steps back into the land of the living now that my energy is picking back up
and one of my first little projects was to organize my make-up drawer.

I am feeling those nesting instincts kick in and I want everything simplified and organized.

My camera is charging from a lot of use this morning on client projects so I had to use my phone.

I separated all of my make-up by category (eyes, lips, face) and created a tray just for tools.

I also took out anything that was non-make-up related. 
So far I am loving my new-and-improved drawer and it is making 
my morning routine go a lot smoother.  

Here are some other quick orgnaizing tips for your bathroom.
I came across them on one of my favorite blogs, and yes that is because Lauren Conrad is a part of it.
Ahh, old habits (The Hills, anyone?) die hard.
