Rainy days...

I recently started reading a book called The Happiness Project, and while it's quite boring most of the time it has inspired me in the organization aspect. I spent most of the morning/early afternoon cleaning out drawers, my nightstand, my dresser, the bottom of my closet, etc.

my "creative" manicure - Sephora OPI Metro Chic & Chanel Graphite

I finally made room in my dresser for a proper jewelry drawer. I don't have a massive jewelry collection but I seemed to have collected a lot of crap throughout the years. Prior to this I had too many random boxes, hooks on doors filled with rusty old forever21 necklaces that I hadn't touched in years... I went through every piece and kept only my favourites.


I always get such great satisfaction when I organize, it's therapeutic and it even becomes a bit fun mid-way. I blasted Amy Winehouse's Back to Black album and went to town...

How have you been spending your rainy days?

  6. The weather has been rainy in Upstate NY as well. I've done some organizing but mostly watching old chick flicks and Friends reruns.

  7. @ Ashley - That is really rude. There are nice ways of expressing your opinion.

    @ Sandra - I have been organising my room recently too, it's crazy what turns up from the depths of my drawers!
