Autumn inspiration...

Autumn has become one of my favorite times of year. It hasn't always been this way, but as I've gotten older I've enjoyed the warm scents, cool air, and crisp leaves so much more.

The other exciting part of Autumn is the cozy clothes you get to wear. Some of my favorites are the warm, fuzzy sweaters and cute scarves.

I just love getting dressed in the morning, drinking my cup of coffee and starting the day right, and feeling good about myself.  If you're like me, most days you opt more for comfort and forget about all the cute clothes ideas once you get up, but this year I'm going to try to be more adventurous with my outfit choices.

Here is some Autumn inspiration for your outfits:

 Hope you guys feel inspired! Link some of your outfit creations below!

DIY Makeup Brush Containers !

As your makeup brush collection starts increasing, the need for something proper to hold them in increases too. Although there are a variety of different types of makeup brush holders you can buy, why not just save the money and make something just as cute?

Large Brush Holder

There are so many creative and fun ways to make your own makeup brush container. Here's how I did mine: 
I filled up a regular glass jar, container, or vase with sea glass. The options of what to fill the container with are endless. You could use beads, marbles, multicolored glass gems, microbeads, basically anything you can think of! 

The reason you would want to put something in the glass is not only to make it look beautiful from the outside, but also to keep the brushes upright and to make sure they stay put once they're placed inside.

Other affordable designs you could use are empty soup cans covered in spray paint or pretty scrapbook paper, Ball jars with ribbon tied around them, or old mugs that you no longer use.

Those are just a few ways to organize and design your own makeup brush containers without the cost!

What are some ways you guys store your brushes?
