I've been doing a spring clean for over a month now (believe me, it was long over due). I try to declutter the house a few times a year, but spring time is when all the hard work and deep cleaning happens. I've taken multiple bags of old clothes and home accessories to our local charity shops and it's amazing how much more room it has freed up. I'm also trying to get more organised at the moment. I've been buying new paper folders, drawer inserts (love the Ikea ones!) and organising my wardrobe as well. I'm hoping all of this hard work will save me a lot of time and energy in the long run and so far I love that everything is so easy to find.

So, I guess it's only natural that I wanted to team up with Beautify this month to take my organisation to another level. They've sent me two of their products to review (a 2 -tier cosmetic case and a jewellery box) and I've really enjoyed using them for the past few weeks. Beautify offer loads of different products from make-up storage to lighting, furniture and textiles (and more). All of their products as super stylish and inspired by the latest trends. Can you tell I'm hooked already?

So, let's start with the 2-tier cosmetic case. I don't wear tons of make-up which is why the 2-tier cosmetic case is definitely big enough for me. I guess it's huge even if you have loads of make-up but I do tend to store other items in there as well (hair accessories, cotton buds etc.) I was a little worried grey velvet wouldn't be the most practical material with make-up, but it's really easy to wipe clean with baby wipes. If you need more room for your make-up, go for the 3-tier case. I find the 2-tier case pretty big (and boxy) which means it can be a bit tricky to store. I tend to keep it on my dresser. It's where I usually apply the make-up and I'm so lucky that my dressing table is big enough to display this pretty case. My old make-up case was pretty small, so I'm really happy I can fit all my products in one case now. I still use my old make-up case when travelling but the 2-tier box is ideal when I'm at home.

The grey velvet jewellery box looks equally fabulous. It's quite a bit smaller (17.5 x 12.5 x 10 cm) It's actually not big enough for my needs (I've got loads of jewellery) but I love the look and the size. It's so easy to fit in a drawer too and the removable ring pad in the middle is just genius (it's perfect for rings or earrings). You can store larger items in the lower tray but I wouldn't exactly overload it or you won't be able to close the box properly. Velvet is the ideal material for jewellery as the fabric will help prevent scratches and damage. I love the rose gold detailing (same as in the cosmetic case) and that they both feel so luxurious. I prefer the grey colour but this jewellery case is also available in blush pink. 

I love that my make-up and jewellery are now so well organised thanks to Beautify. I've only tested these products for a few weeks, so I cannot comment too much on the durability, but the quality seems good. Both cases are well made and sturdy. It would be great to have more sizes available (especially for the jewellery case) but I guess if it was any bigger I wouldn't be able to store the box in the drawer. These boxes are so stylish that you'll want to display them. They also come in super stylish gift boxes featuring a chic monochrome design and a touch of pink. Most importantly, I may have gotten even more excited about getting organised and decluttering our home. Being organised has definitely helped me to feel more relaxed and clear-headed in our house. If you haven't started already, I totally recommend for you to do the same. I promise you'll feel freer and happier.

Do you have any decluttering tips and tricks you swear by?
