Closet cleanout and storage closet ideas

organized_closet↑ My closet 

To prepare your closet for another season might be an uneasy task sometimes, especially if you operate with a limited space, like me. I have both a small closet and a small space for storage. As a personal fashion stylist, I do closet cleanout service and have already seen a lot of closets, most of them really big – and yes, by ‘big’ I mean the special closet rooms full of clothes and fashion accessories which a lot of girls dream of, not actually realizing that the more you have, the less organized it gets. Having a big closet = more options but also more work! The more pieces you own, the lower ability to memorize all of them you have. So the chance to find something in a huge amount of items and to combine an outfit lowers.náročné, ale i stresující.

If you invest time in your closet, it can work very well for you and the more time you literally spend in it, the higher chance you have to master dressing perfectly within seconds. What do I mean with ‘spending time in your closet’? A regular closet cleanout – before and after every spring – summer season, minimally!
Now, with spring in its bloom, it is necessary to sort the winter and summer stuff. No way I am saying that you are supposed to divide your closet into a summer and winter part! The magic is in mixing fabrics and you would miss that cashmere sweater during your night summer walks, as well as you would miss the chiffon blouse showing its collar, sleeves and bottom under your sweaters in winter.
What I am definitely sorting out from my winter stuff is the following: winter coats and jackets, high boots with fur inside, fur coats, wool accessories such as gloves and caps, knit turtleneck sweaters, nordic pattern clothing, winter sports clothes and equipment… Well, it suddenly has piled up!!!

Where am I going to store the winter stuff now after I’ve bought some pretty new spring clothing and shoes? Need some closet solution for small spaces! I am googling some storage closet ideas or tips on how to make an extra space in a small room. And I have found MakeSpace storage experts – a service which picks up your stuff and stores it for you. When you need it again, they simply bring it back to you. Depends on how much stuff you want to store, you pay a montly rent. MakeSpace is in the process of opening new locations, be on the lookout for MakeSpace coming to your area!

This time I would like to share some of my (recent) top makeup products. If you are also following me on Chic Cocktail Facebook page, you could notice that I share my makeup looks from time to time. I can say that my relation to makeup is purely natural cause I also think that makeup is in fact a natural part of our lives even if all you manage in your daily makeup routine is giving a little color to your complexion with the right foundation and a chic blush.

Sugar Body Scrub

Body_Scrub_Farmona_Sweet_Secret4
Today I would like to talk a lot about sugar! How sweet, isn’t it? However, I’m not going to talk about baking sweets but body exfoliation with a sugar body scrub, and I also want to share my experience with a sugar paste hair removal. Who doesn’t want to enter the S/S season with silky smooth skin! As in the saying: ‘Summer bodies are made in winter’, it is essential to care of your body in cold season particularly.The temperature changes, layers of clothing, indoor heating… all this factors can cause dry skin and lack of its flexibility and softness. The easiest way to recover your skin is to follow a scrubbing routine.

Jil_Sander_Jil_perfume

When you hear Jil Sander, the first think you imagine is probably MINIMALISM and Jil Sander designer as a minimalist cult representative. Besides this, Jil Sander fashion house has created almost 60 own fragrances.
The one which I am going to review here is JIL Sander Jil 2009 and there is a story behind my Jil Sander perfume. This perfume was a gift and you know, when given a scent you have never tried, you do not expect much. I actually unpacked the Jil Sander perfume only a few weeks later since I got it, on 2015 Christmas Eve.
