Blogger Essential: Cosmetic Organizer & Jewelry Storage

Did you guys know that today is National Best Friend Day?! In honor of this day, I’ve included my blogger bestie Kasey from The Style Wright on today’s post. As bloggers, one of our biggest challenges is keeping makeup and jewelry organized, both at home and when it comes to shoots. I often shoot 2-4 outfits at once, and it can be hard to keep all the makeup and jewelry I need for my shoots organized when I’m constantly on the go. I’ve been searching for cosmetic organizers and jewelry storage boxes that are functional and chic, and can be brought along with me on shoots. So when Caboodles reached out to me to collaborate, it was a total no-brainer. I was super excited to try out their colorful cosmetic organizers and on-the-go cases, and was pleasantly surprised by the durability and lightness of the products.

I tried out a range of different products from the Caboodles Retro Collection, which fit my vintage aesthetic perfectly. To keep this post organized (haha I couldn’t help myself), below is a breakdown of everything featured:

  • On-The-Girl Marble Case: This is the big blue box featured in the above photo, and is the roomiest of all the products. I used this case to store all my brushes and skincare products, as well as a few large makeup palettes and mascaras. This case has two layers, with a smaller layer on top that contains three separate compartments and a mirror, and then a big layer on the bottom for your bulky items like lotions and serums. The best thing about this case is that it’s designed to be portable with a handle, so it really is perfect for bringing on longer shoots or for travel.
  • Pretty-In-Petite Marble Case: This is essentially a smaller version of the On-The-Go Girl Marble Case. It also contains two layers with a mirror, with the first layer being two swivel trays, and the second layer being a larger storage compartment. The size of this case makes it great for storing jewelry and hair accessories, especially when I need to bring multiple pieces with me on shoots. It is also small enough to display as a cosmetic organizer or jewelry holder on your dresser at home.
  • Cosmic Cosmetic Compact: These little round cases are so adorable, I can’t resist anything round. I used one of them to organize my lipsticks, lipliners, and lip balms, and the other one to store my nail polishes and manicure items. The cases are small enough to fit into a large handbag or tote bag, so they are super portable and will keep all your essentials organized.

Kasey and I definitely had a lot of fun doing this shoot. The older I get, the more I realize how hard it is to make new friends that you really connect with. I met Kasey last October at a blogger event, and we immediately clicked. I saw her again a few weeks later at another event, where she mentioned she was invited to the opening of the Downton Abbey exhibit. I gushed at how much I loved Downton Abbey and told her that she has to go, and next thing I know she invited me to be her plus one. I was surprised because we didn’t know each other that well yet, but I’m so glad she did invite me because it gave us a chance to bond! Even though we’ve only known each other for less than a year, we’ve already done so much together (including a trip to LA), and I know that she always has my back. She even agreed to wear matching headbands for this shoot, and Kasey is not a girly-girl at all!

    Oh, I need this! I’m always running out of room and I love the colours of that storage!

  3. I freaking LOVE Caboodles! I inadvertently starting collecting them myself. I saw that round one while I was out and I should have bought it because I fell in love! Sadly I didn’t, but I NEED IT. It reminds me of Polly Pocket for some reason!

  4. Okay first, I love your pictures and your skirt is amazing. I totally forgot about Caboodles, but think this is a great organization idea. I always struggle with cosmetic organization, especially for travel. I end up with like an entire duffle bag of makeup lol.
