I should be studying Biology...
but I'm more in the mood to take pictures of rand-o stuff.
So I'm sharing with you where I put some of my jewelry, nail polish, and perfume!

The rooms in our apartment are about the size of a shoebox, so space is limited. I use a shelf on my desk to display my perfume and jewelry; along with my bowl of nail polish. 

Here's the set up:

I got this fun glass bowl for $4.99 at TJ Maxx to display my nail polishes in! I love how decorative it makes the nail polish look! 

I store my rings in this little green, for lack of a better word, box (?). I really can't think of the word for it.  But regardless, my rings and stud earrings live in this green thing:


These are some of my favorite pieces of jewelry. 
Staples in the jewelry collection, in my opinion, only thing missing is my pearl studs (but I was wearing them!)

The monogram ring I got for my birthday from my sweet roomies, Emily & Ally.
The sapphire ring I got for my 13th birthday from my sweet grandparents!
And the bracelet is a DY knoooock off! only $10 my friends.
I seriously wear it with EVERYTHING.

These are some of my fun flashy pieces of jewelry! 
When I gain the courage I'll take an outfit of the day picture with the outfit that these go with. It's blingin
I got the bracelet and earrings at Charming Charlie's and the pearl ring was my grandmothers :)

And that's it!
Do you display your nail polish, perfume, or jewelry?

I love how to store your nail polishes! I just picked up a similar bowl from Marshall's that I keep pistachios in on the counter to munch on.

I love seeing how other people organize things! Thanks for sharing. I did a post showing a lot of my jewelry organization awhile back

Not sure if you can see it, but I keep my bracelets in boxes on my nightstand, my necklaces on display, and my earrings and rings in a drawer.

I love seeing other people's spaces! :-) I got a jewelry armoire/full-length mirror for Christmas so all my jewelry is in that. It's actually pretty filled! ;-) I just got 2 more bracelets and a ring this weekend. Can't have too much jewelry in my oppinion!

I love all the jewelry you wear every day :) So pretty!

I always wear my engagement/wedding rings, my Tiffany bracelet from my hubby, and my Pandora bracelet :)

Jessica said...

I stored the clunky dresser that my apartment furnished me with in my walk-in closet and I lay out all of my jewelry on top of it, similar to how you organize yours!
-ps- I'm a little jealous of your Essie collection you've got goin on there girlfriend, ha!

Jules said...

Keeping your polishes in a bowl like that is really pretty! It that Turquoise & Caicos that I spy from Essie? I love that color. Your monogram ring is also very pretty.
