How I Stay Organized

Organized Time:
My life is a mess of deadlines and papers, so I developed a system for keeping me organized. Part of that is my MintGreen planner, as seen here. I also use Google Calendar, Google Keep, and plenty of Post-it Notes. I put all deadlines in Google Calendar and color code them by event. I use Google Keep for to-do lists with reminders, as well as for lists I need on both my phone and laptop. Post-it notes are stuck throughout my planner to remind me of blog posts or generic things I need to do.

Organized Makeup/Nail Polish
I use an acrylic container with one large section, two medium sections, two small sections, and three sections for lipstick and travel sized perfume.
In the first small section, I keep all of my eyeshadow palettes, and my eyeliner, mascara, and stick eyeshadow go into the first mini section. The second mini section holds tweezers, nail clippers,and nail files. The final mini section has my lipstick, lip gloss, and travel perfume. The small section in front of the small and mini sections holds all of my brushes.
The large section holds my powder and nail polish remover. The two medium sections next to the large section hold my nail polish in one and my foundation, concealer, and blush in the other.

Lately, I've been trying to redefine my style. I'm completely smitten by looks inspired by Blair Waldorf, Massie Block, and anything Southern prep. Although I plan on creating a wardrobe almost entirely inspired by these ideals, I also plan on keeping my defining pieces-black combat boots, black jeans, and leather jackets because, unfortunately, heels and dresses are not always practical.

I'm also redefining how I want my room to look. I definitely want something more classic, but also very modern. I'm thinking about a nautical theme. I still love Captain America, so I can keep most of my Cap themed items out, since the color scheme is the same.

Unfortunately, changing my look costs more than I'm willing to spend. I will be sure to update my progress, however.
