Makeup rut and the working week

Been really busy lately as I just started a new job (after being out of work for months, hence it was a bit of a shock to the system, haha). Lately I'm finding that I'm in such a rush in the morning, mainly because I have a rather long commute, so I'm pretty much wearing the same thing day in and day out. Does anyone else find that the rush of the week stifles their creativity when it comes to makeup? I can't wait for the weekend so I can dig out my MAC Pink Nouveau lipstick and some purple eyeshadow!

On an unrelated note, ELF's Studio Line launches here on July 27th (next week!!!) so watch this space for reviews soon! I managed to get my hands on one of their Studio brushes a bit early and it's gorgeous so I can't wait to order the rest of them!

Getting organized with ELF

I picked up this cute organizer from ELF and I LOVE it! It's basically comprised of two parts held together magnetically. (Don't worry, the magnets are quite strong!) The main compartment in the centre holds a decent amount of makeup, plenty of room to pack essentials for travel. The outer part has some very handy spaces for brushes and a net compartment to pack any extras.

This is a great buy - definitely the best cosmetic organiser of this size that I've seen, and excellent value for money too.
