Summer sort-out!

Hi everyone :)
Today I thought I'd write a post about a spring clean but summer style! Summer is always when I decide that I need a clean out of old clothes, old makeup, and generally a good tidy up!
Obviously with clothing it is down to moving winter/heavier clothes out of the wardrobe and buying (maybe too many, oops!) new summer clothes to replace them. I found some inexpensive plastic drawers that are really easy to put together and folded away the clothes I won't be using for the next few months. I then placed the set of drawers into my wardrobe so as well as being hidden away, looks quite tidy underneath my hanging clothes. As you can see below, I also bought a smaller set of the drawers which I keep my non hanging, lighter summer clothes in.
Now onto makeup, which really is similar to clothing! With me, it's a case of putting away the heavier/darker shades of products and bringing out more BB creams and lighter (not in colour, in weight) foundation/concealer. I also am loving individual false lashes at the moment. It's so easy to do at home and they stay on for weeks. This is a good tip for if you're going away on holiday as you don't have to keep applying mascara each morning.
Next I like to re-organise my bedroom. I do hope I'm not alone on this one! Anytime I get a chance, I'm buying new bedding or new decoration for my room, it's addictive! I still live at home with my parents so this room is like my house and I like to treat it well. Recently my latest purchase is an over due one of a dressing table. I say dressing table, it's a makeup/hair station but also is home to my computer where I type this from now. Below is a little snap shot of how I have organised one part.
Please let me know how you like to re organise for summer, I'd love to hear some of your tips!

My Summer Scent - Miss Dior Perfume

Hey everyone!
I love to browse around the perfume section at this time of year because there are so many new summery scents! I usually go for quite a floral scent, possibly sweet smelling but not too overpowering.
This time, I popped into Boots with no idea what I was looking for - apart from that I was in need for a new perfume as mine had run out the night before! After a long long time spent in Boots constantly smelling different perfumes (and nearly losing the sense to smell! Anyone else get that? When you're smelling scents for so long they all just smell the same?) anyway, I came across the Dior section.
I tested a few in the Dior range and to be honest, yes, they are quite pricey! I eventually fell in love with the new scent in their range called 'Miss Dior'. Strangely, the scent is not very floral smelling but it is sweet enough for me to like and not too strong.
After having this perfume for a little while now I can say it was definitely the right one to purchase! Plus the smell lasts very well so there is no need to constantly go and 'top up' wasting the perfume!
Let me know if you have a particular perfume you're loving this summer! and have you tried this one yet?
Thanks for reading!
