It’s been almost 6 months since Paul and I moved to Portland, Oregon and we’ve had a lot of visitors to our new home in our new city. My sister and Paul’s parents have already been through to see our place.

We’re expecting more visitors and guests over the holidays and then my parents are coming to visit for two weeks in January! Since we live in a small loft-style apartment in the city, we have to be super-efficient with our space and try to keep our one bathroom as sparkling and zen as possible for ourselves and for our rotating roster of guests.

Under the Bathroom Sink Makeover

After spending some time earlier this summer giving my makeup drawer a makeover, I decided that the space under my bathroom sink needed the same thing. I don’t have an actual drawer in my bathroom – just a big heap of empty space. I actually store my makeup in the powder room downstairs where there is a drawer, but my daily beauty products lie in a jumbled heap under my sink. I did a little sleuthing on Pinterest and came up with this solution for all my skin, hair and daily hygiene products.
