Gold cutlery

The hunt has begun. Previously, home decor and household items were a matter of daydreaming and browsing. But now with our upcoming new home, things are getting serious!

Recently, my fiance and I came across gold cutlery at a store. I had always seen them in food style photos and thought they were pretty cool. But actually holding them and thinking of using them on a daily basis needed some mental adjustment. After all, most cutlery we’re used to is silver, and gold felt… different.

So I started searching for more gold cutlery online to see if I could start getting used to it… Paired with simple white plates,  these gold babies make everything look so good!

Cleaning up for Christmas

With the year drawing to a close, it’s good to get organised so you can enjoy get-togethers with peace of mind.

If you often find your small make up items sprawled all over your dresser or even your room like me, I’ve found a nifty storage solution from MUJI that doesn’t take up much space!

This plastic unit comes with six drawers and are the perfect size for all your small cosmetic and beauty items. I filled my drawers starting with items that I use commonly at the top such as creams and blotters, followed by concealer/ foundation/ eye shadows/ primers in the next drawer. Below that would be the blushers, followed by lip colours. Essentially, all in the order in which I use them from top to bottom.

I probably don’t have enough many personal items to fill each drawer, but for size reference, here are some photos:

Each drawer comes with one removable divider and even fits the thick tarte cheek stain perfectly!

Many lip colours with plenty of space to spare! And the more amazing thing is that should you not have so much vertical space, you can rearrange the drawers to sit horizontally:

In Singapore, the MUJI set of drawers are priced at S$39. Just nice for a Christmas gift for someone or even yourself :)
