Wordless Wednesday


Many deliveries, unexpected gifts, taking a path to get to a dream and walking in the snow in my warm boots. What more can I ask for?

Small Space Makeup/Mirror Section

small space ideas

Make up and a mirror section is what I wanted to do with the small space I had on a wall in my room. Living in an apartment has its downfalls when it comes to space so when you have a small space any where, you need to use it in a smart way. If you lived in one or are currently living in one then you feel my pain. Plus having a bedroom roommate (aka my son) doesn't leave me with much space either but it is what you do with the limited space is what matters. Since finishing my son's custom closet, it left a with a little space for me beside it and there is where I decided to put this make up and mirror section together.

Here is this section before making the closet.

Here is the after.


I did not want to crowd this section because it was behind the door but I wanted to have my things display for easy access but with the option to hide it if I wanted to as well.  The mirror is still my favourite part of this section, I made it a while back but it reminds me to tell myself that I am beautiful. If you want to see how I made it you can check it out here - DIY BeaUtiFUL Mirror.



Simple command hook keeps my bags near and ready for when I am on the go.



I don't remember where I bought this since I got this a very long time ago but I love what it says and the photography is simple but beautiful. 


Now for my makeup and jewlery section. This used to be above my desk but moved it here instead. My son for sure won't be able to reach this unless he hire someone and its by my large mirror so that the day I do decide to wear makeup for something I can put it on there. 



Having the jewelry box here works perfectly because I tend to forgot when I am half way of of the door about wearing earrings. I guess I am too busy making sure I have everything for my son that I forget the simple things like my hoop earrings. 



I have a few more sections in my room to finish, I am thinking my desk area next to tackle.

Happy Monday and even more happy Monday for me. Through all the craziness going on around the house (I live in an apartment but you get my point) I nearly forgot to tell you all that I received a email from Britni, over at Homeschoolin Mommy Chronicles telling me she nominated me for a Liebster Award.

When you were a child, what was your dream job? Do you have that job today?

I know that I wanted to become a Disney Star. I loved Disney Channel and wanted to be just like the stars I saw on TV. I don't have that job today but I did get to promote a Disney movie called 'Disney Prom' for Disney Canada, audition for a company the would get me on their shows, pitch a TV series to them and go to Disneyland in my lifetime so I think I got to live out little Disney Dreams.

1) Fault in the Stars by John Green, 2) Seriously I am Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres and 3) Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

If you have to move out of the country, where would you move to?
I am not too sure, Australia or Greece would be nice. Never been so it would be an adventure.

Not amazingly but when I manage to not burn the dish, I feel pretty good about it. I can bake though.

Yes, I been meaning to do a post about the easiest way to do perfect french tips on nails but seem to always postponing it. 

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?
My superpower would be, Invisible power because you can get away with anything when no one can see you and you can hear what people are really saying about you.  

Do you prefer the beach or the mountain? Why?
Beach all the way. There is something about the view of the ocean that brings calm and beauty. I love the light against the water in both the night and day as well as the waves.

What movie did you love to watch as a child?
Sound of Music. "So long, Far Well" is my favourite song next to"I am 16 going on 17..." and "Snowflakes on eye lashes...". I love a good musical. 

What is something that your learned recently?
I learned how to use a sewing machine. 

What is your favorite season of the year and why?
I have always loved spring time, not only because it was the month I was born but the weather is always a mixture of sunny days and rainy days. Its not too hot or too cold but just right.
