February haul

February 27, 2015 | Beauty, Hauls | 2 Comments »


This is a photo of some of my purchases over the past month. I’ve already photographed and swatched everything. I’m in the process of testing/playing and forming it all into posts. What? I’m serious!

This past month my husband helped me set up a mini studio in our bedroom. It took a while because we had to research and shop around a bit. I wanted something that was decent quality and wouldn’t take up so much room. The apartment we’re living in now is rather small and we plan on staying here until we move into our OWN home which is going to be another year at least. So I had to set something up for the time being. Anyway, even though the apartment is super tiny, my bedroom is quite large. It’s got a pretty decent size closet and holds a queen size bed, 2 night stands, an elliptical, desk, tool box, my camera and lighting equipment. I have more than enough room to get around and exercise, but if I add on things WILL get cramped and will definitely start looking cluttered. My husband wanted to go all out and get me a fancy backdrop with several types of lights, etc. We could have fit all that in our room, but the idea of using up every bit of free space made me feel uneasy. I really don’t like things to look cluttered. So I cut a few corners and we ended up with a setup that works for me. Is it perfect? Nope. But it works! No more sitting in the house sulking because it’s too rainy and gloomy to take photos. No more breaking down the table and running it all over the yard for that perfect amount of sunlight. No more dodging mosquitoes/bees/hornets. No more crazy gusts of wind knocking down my limited edition lipsticks (this has happened a few times, poor RiRi). No more freezing my butt off! Now all I have to do is turn on the lights and get to it! Easy. Just the way I like it! Now I can stop crying about how awesome my setup at the old house was. As awesome as it was the lighting was inconsistent.

So be on the lookout for lots and lots of posts!
