Bench of Facial Saving and the Changes

Dear reader,  do you recollect my dressing table sort out and the removal of items to a crate. The basis being that if those items were still in the crate mid-summer then they are for the bin (if I'm brave enough ) .  Sunday morning saw me revisit this newly cluttered surface once again.  Look at it.  There's no space to squeeze a  lipstick!  How does this happen?

I stripped the items then replaced them in exactly the same layout as I had in January as per my handy pic (on my January blog.)  This was to see what I had gained over 3 months.  These gained items were still on my bed.

The findings

These few items have been taken from the crate during the last 2-3 months.  I think they are all excusable.  Nail varnish remover, face mask, perfume, nail file, micellar water and a face serum. 

Then there are a couple of items I've bought.  A number 7 face mask and braces wax.  The braces wax an absolute essential after having my braces fitted.

I'm pleasantly surprised, aswell as dumbfounded that a cluttered affect had been created organically over 3 months by the addition of just 8 items.  Actually when it's written like that 8 is quite a lot. 

This is how the Bench of my Facial Saving  (dressing table to normal folks ) now looks. 
Roll on June . 

the yellow tube was previously in the bathroom so I have ignored it

 Let's see what happens during the next 3 month timehop.

Am I normal or am I particularly untidy?  Tell me about your Bench of Torture Facial Saving.  


  1. I've added two chunky eye crayons (retractable) to the core cosmetics stash since my big January purge. One of those is offset by the binned superfluous sharpener. So net additions = 1. Smug or what?! Tiny Cottage Life doesn't allow me a bench of torture. I think the trick is not to have a welcome-all-comers big surface. Hope this helps!
