Organisation and Storage Tools available from Carter & Co. Ltd.

If you're like my girl Jodi and were wondering where your daily emails went let me just leave you with the old Yiddish proverb: "man plans and God laughs". Hopefully we can still knock out 31 posts this month. Pray for me.

The Sort Your Stuff version of this post got a lot of positive feedback last year so I wanted to continue in that vein. Carter & Co. Ltd. has a long history of doing business in Barbados dating back to 1880-1890. You can read all about it here. There are four locations, the biggest of which is the Wildey branch. The majority of the following photos were taken there but I will start with one I took at their High Street store.


Drawer Organizer $7.88 

3 Drawer Organizer in Violet $43.65
I have the Turquoise one and it holds a lot of lipsticks

I'm going to put lip/eye liners in mine

Single Drawer Vanity Organizer $39.58

Steel Mesh Expandable Drawer Organizer $66.10 
I currently have the non expandable version housing my lip/eye liners and lip glosses

3 Compartment Cutlery Drainer $5.14
This could be used for brushes, mascaras or lip/eye liners

2 Drawer Vanity Organizer $54.56 

Cosmetic Organizer with multi sized compartments $44.47

Cosmetic Organizer with two compartments and a drawer $40.61

Cosmetic Cup $14.51

If you really go hard like Youtuber Tarababyz you might need a little something more heavy duty:

Tool Drawers from $256 - $580

They also have the popular Sterilite plastic organizers in various sizes.

I know these can really start to add up if you're thinking about getting several of them. Who woulda thought acrylic containers would cost so much.
Coming from someone who intends to get a couple Delux Beauty Boxes from the Original Beauty Box at $159USD each, I can tell you that storage/organisation can get pricey so please consider all your options.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
