So today may not be Christmas related....unless you know someone who would appreciate some help organizing things!
I'm mostly talking about makeup and nail polish.
I was looking around on Pinterest today for some ideas on storing my makeup and nail polishes.
I don't currently have enough makeup to worry too much, yet. Haha But my cyber Monday splurge on 42 E.L.F. nail polishes caused me to start looking for a better way to store and organize them!
I came across a couple cute ideas and was trying to think of ways to combine the two!
The first idea was a shelving unit that could hold things other than nail polish. Now, I wanted something that I could close and hide them, so I don't have to see them all the time, so that bothered me a little.
The second idea was to make a tiered shelf to put them on, so I could have them behind each other, but I could still see them.
My final idea/solution was probably to create something myself. Ideally, I would love a shelving unit that has cute shutter doors on it and I can make little tiered shelves to put on those shelves!
I think it would be super cute and way efficient!
(The photos are not of my collection. Just examples. And I believe those shelves are from Ikea.)
What do you think? :]
Let me know below!

Okay, so today's post is going to be sort of a "gift guide for her".
I realize that most of the people who glance at my blog are probably women, not men..haha But I'm still gonna do it!
Maybe you need to buy something for your mom or sister or cousin...here are some ideas!
Okay! I'm going to be talking about Daily Look.
Yes, I've done clothing reviews of this website before. I like to take that day's current looks and write what I feel about them.
But today I am going to go a little more in depth about how the site works!
When you visit the site you can create a FREE account. This way you can be notified, by email, what the daily looks are.
How it works. Daily look is a bunch of fashion designers who create a few different outfits every day. The items used in these outfits are then on sale, for I believe, 24 hours.
This is where the "gift guide" part comes in.
Daily Look has all kinds of trendy clothing pieces and accessories. And when they go on sale, they are really reasonably priced! So go check out the sales every day and I'm sure you'll be able to find something for every girl on your list!
Daily Look offers you multiple ways to earn points toward "in-store credit".
1. You get 10 points for every day that you visit their site.
2. You get 10 points for every social sharing like tweeting or sharing on facebook or Pinterest. You can get up to 50 points a day from social network sharing.
3. You get 1,000 points for every friend that you refer, when they make a purchase.
4. You get 1,000 points when you give a friend $10.
5. You get 1 point for every $1 that you spend on their site.
6. When you get to 2,000 you earn $20 credit! So basically you get $20 worth of items for free!
How cool is that? So not only can you get stuff on sale every day, but every dollar that you spend gives you points towards a free purchase!
You can also go through all the items on the site individually, instead of by outfit, and you can add things to "your closet". It's like a wish-list.
And if there is something that you really love, but it's currently out of stock, you can request that they send you an email when they get more in!
I've never purchased anything from them, but I really do love their site. I would love to be able to buy some boots and bags from them!!
Here's a link!!
I hope this helps people understand how the site works a little better and hopefully they'll give you some ideas for gifts! :]

This is seriously not Christmas related...but necessary!
Lately, in our household, there has been a LOT of lying.
(HUGE PET PEEVE! I HATE LIARS!)
So yeah... Needless to say I've been extremely stressed out over this. I cannot stand when people blatantly lie to your face. Especially when you watch someone lie to their parents...and usually get away with it. Drives me insane!
I wish people would just quit lying. It doesn't get you anywhere in life! People will figure you out and nobody will like you or trust you anymore.
Fun stuff! I wanna be that person! NOT!
The parents are out of town finishing Christmas shopping and I am in charge of getting the siblings to and from school tomorrow. Its the last day before winter break.
Also...people need to calm down about the whole world ending thing... There are children in juvy because they're making stupid threats to schools. Honestly... If the world were to end, what good would those threats do you? And if you actually did shoot people, what good would that do you? And if you're stupid enough to do any of that and the world doesn't end, what now?! You're in jail! Have a nice life..
Wow.. Lots of ranting today. Haha! Oh well!
I hope everyone is being safe and still enjoying the Christmas season! Five more days!

I don't really have anything fun for you guys today. Sorry!
I was rushing around to Michael's and Joann's today trying to find what I need for a couple presents I'm making.
Long story short...I ended up with a massive headache. Both from stressing out and from driving in the dark.
(I'm supposed to wear glasses for night driving because I have astigmatisms, which cause all the lights to star out and burn my eyes.)
Sorry again for the less than exciting blog post tonight!
I hit 13 subscribers on YouTube today! Yay! My favorite number! Really wish making videos was easier... I need a computer!
Anyways... Remember, even though it can get stressful, enjoy the magic of this time of year!

Sorry everyone. I'm over an hour late.
Today has been busy/rough.
No fun posts...
Maybe a life update?
I'm working on photography. Seems that I always circle back around to doing something with photography.
Been busy planning and stressing. Still hoping to be successful one day...
I watched Tinkerbell last night and tonight I watched Tinkerbell and The Lost Treasure. Great movies to watch right before sleeping. Quite relaxing.
I will do something better for Day 16. Its Christmas program day at church! Maybe I will write a little about that!
I wish I had a magical mirror and pixie dust... I'd get a computer. Yep.
Good night! <3
