Get Organized: Vanity

I know it's not easy to always keep your vanity/ makeup storage organized, but we can do little things that help us to be organized.

What i do to keep my vanity organized:
  • I keep my daily routine products in one place so they are easy to but back in their place.
  • I arrange all products on their own drawer lipsticks, eyeshadows, foundations, etc.             So they are easy to find and easy to put back.
Here is some pretty DIY organizers for you to make.

Tasty Tuesday: Perfect pancakes

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted (optional)

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Make a “volcano” well in the middle (as my son calls it) and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix with a fork or whisk until smooth.
  3. Heat a griddle or large pan over medium high heat (I set my griddle at 375 degrees). Pour or scoop ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Wait until bubbles form to flip. Brown on the other side and serve with butter and blueberry syrup.

Drink up Thursday: Watermelon Mojitos


  • 3-4 cubes of seedless watermelon (about 1x1x1 inch)
  • 1.5oz of fresh lime juice
  • 1.5oz of simple syrup (recipe here)
  • 1.5oz of white rum
  • 4-5 mint leaves
  • crushed ice
  • Splash of club soda (added after shaking)


  1. Put the cubes of watermelon in the shaker, then muddle (mash) them to release the watermelon juice. We have a special tool that looks like a tiny potato masher, but you can improvise with the handle of a kitchen spoon. Watermelon mashes pretty easily.
  2. Once you have the watermelon muddled, add the other ingredients to the shaker along with crushed ice and give it several hard shakes.
  3. Pour the liquid into a tall ice-filled glass and add a splash of club soda for a bit of fizz. Garnish with a thin lime wedge to finish it off.

Drink up Thursday: White Berry Lemon Sangria

Invidual white berry lemon sangrias

Personal, individually-portioned sangrias made and served in the very same jar. Strawberries, blackberries, lemons, and apples soak in white wine and rum - then you simply pull the jars out of the fridge, add ice and soda, plop in a straw, and hand 'em out. Your next party just got loads easier.

prep time: 10 MINUTES

total time: 10 MINUTES


  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 750 ml bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best – I like Sauvignon Blanc) (about 1/2 cup per jar)
  • ½ cup white rum, divided (1 tablespoon per jar)
  • Approx. 4 cups lemon-lime soda
  • Equipment
  • 8 16-ounce pint mason jars with lids and rims
  • Straws


  1. Divide lemon slices among the eight jars, then the apples, then the strawberries and blackberries.
  2. Pour the wine (1/2 cup each) and rum (1 tablespoon each) into each jar, over the fruit.
  3. Cover each jar with a lid and screw shut.
  4. Place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours, or up to 12 hours.
  5. Remove from refrigerator. Add ice and pour lemon-lime soda to the top of the jar. Plop in a straw and serve.
