Get your closet organized!

The following is a guest post.

Are you afraid of approaching your closet to find a jungle inside? Do you have overstuffed clothes plus twisted shirts in their hangers? Is it difficult to find what you are going to wear for a day? Why not get to the root of a problem and solve it?

The first secret to have an organized wardrobe is to have appropriate and well-sized closets and shoe racks. No matter how you economically folded your tops and sweaters (may it be twice- or thrice-fold) it won’t do unless you have closets big enough to provide space to all of your clothing articles.

Normally, we have two sets of closets and one shoe rack, but as we hit puberty and realized that treating that t-shirt as a uniform by wearing it once a week is a big no-no, we started going to department stores and purchase as much clothes as our allowances and savings would allow. Few years after, we would get more conscious about our appearance and then learn how to follow fashion trends. It would then become our style renaissance as proven by our impulsive buying of flared jeans, elephant pants, peplum skirts, and ruffled blouses. Sooner, we would acquire too much clothes that they can’t fit to our childhood closets. Of course, same thing goes with shoes.

Closets are not inexpensive furniture to have and if you are on a tight budget, you won’t easily part with your hard-earned cash and buy that Mariah Carey-inspired drawer. Instead, you would give this action a lot of consideration first before deciding that it is worth buying a new furniture.

My favorite online furniture shop, Fabrooms, offers good quality and affordable pieces. The shop boasts its wide range of sofas, tables, closets, living textiles, and even garden tools. I have dreamed of owning at least two from their collection and this post inspired me to share some of its closets and shoe racks designs. Take a look.

As I digress, I realized that Fabrooms pieces have those characteristics that we must look for in a closet. We can try buying some of its items and be assured that not only we would have a well-designed closet, but sturdy and insect-free ones, too. Not to mention elegant and stylish. Plus, we won’t be throwing money away as we can be assured that we can use the product for years to come. What do you think?

Been suffering from closet space lately? Share with us how you are trying to solve it!

April Link Loves!

Hello beautiful people!

This is a new series that I am starting from this month on. The “Link loves” post will feature links to posts that I have enjoyed reading. The posts will be of people whom I follow and I recommend you to follow too. They may or may not be my followers. But that is not the point here. The point is, I loved reading their posts and thought it’s worth mentioning here, so that you guys could check them out and follow if you wish!

Also in this new series, I will be featuring posts where my blog / any blogpost of mine was mentioned <3

The Link Loves posts will be published on the last day of each month.

So here goes my April favorites:

1) Lottie of Book Adoration did this post on book sculptures which really caught my eye!. Those sculptures by Su Blackwell are created from books that are cut (sounds unholy but the works are truly artistic!). An example is this picture below but check her post out to see more!
