Happy Sunday!

It has been an INSANE! weekend here, and it’s just going to get crazier this week. I’m already looking forward to next weekend–hopefully we’ll be settled into our new place (at least a little bit) by then. Moving is absolute madness, I tell you!

  1. Good luck with the move! Do you have any tips for packing & moving makeup long distance? I’m moving next week and I don’t think I’ll be able to fit all my makeup in my suitcase. Thanks! :)

    • Things like eyeliner, lipstick, lipgloss, etc. can withstand a lot of movement, so don’t sweat those kinds of products. I’d concentrate on being able to protect powder products like eyeshadows and blushes as well as anything that’s glass. Ideally, you want to pack so there’s not much room for things to move around. You can use bubblewrap to pad the sides of a box and then put products inside. For anything really fragile, wrap in bubble wrap individually or roll multiple items together in a towel or bed sheet (all things that need to be packed!). Consider shipping your makeup separately through UPS, FedEx, etc. and getting it insured (because insurance can be really $$ through a mover)!

      • Yeah the insurance from the moving company I got is crazy expensive so I’ll have to try to bring as much with me. Thank you so much for the tips, you’re awesome! :)

  2. After living in my one family home for 14 the move we did was a nightmare for weeks (6 weeks) of purging and boxing. I feel your paint.
