BBHQ May Task: Beautiful Collections

May's Beauty Blogger Headquarters task is all about 'Beautiful Collections'. I love seeing other bloggers collections and how they store/organize them. I'm always looking for new ideas.

Since this task was about our collections I thought it would be easier to do it in a video as opposed to taking a bazillion photos :)

I hope you enjoyed the video :)

A few additional details:
Where do you keep your collection?
I keep my hair products in my bathroom and all my makeup and nail polish in my bedroom.

What furniture or organizer do you use?
I love, as you seen in the video, to use small baskets. You can get these from Walmart, The Dollar Tree, Dollar General, ect... I also love using the storage drawers from Sterilite, which you can also pick up from Walmart. Also check out your local Big Lots as they carry these sometimes too.

Do you have a cataloging system? If so, can you share your secret?
I love to organize things, it's a bit of an obsession. I like to have things grouped by type, like all my eye shadows together. I also like to have things organized by color. I worked in retail for several years and that taught me a lot about colorizing and it has stuck with me :)

Do you have any special displays for your favorite items?
Not currently, but that may be something that I do in the future.

When you get new items, where do they go?
Typically when I get new items they usually start off in my office till I get a change to take photos of them, if the product is something I want to share on my blog. From there it finds its way in to the appropriate drawer or shelf.

For fun, share your top 5 Favorite items in your beautiful collection :)
My current top 5 favorite items from my collection are:
1) Baby Lips in Quenched
2) Mabelline Studio Gel Liner in Charcoal 
3) Any of my Wet n Wild eye shadows
4) Wild Honeysuckle Fragrance from Bath & Body Works
5) Cover Girl BB Cream

I would love to see and hear about your collection! Leave me a link below if you have shared about your collection. If you would like to a more in-depth look at my collection or have any questions feel free to leave them down below.
