I love using assessories like necklaces, handbags, and even makeup, to change my look. The only problem is remembering to wear them! It’s a shame to have jewellery sitting in a box unused, because they should be worn and enjoyed. So, I changed the way I organise my accessories so they are uncluttered and where I can see them.
I keep my dresser in the wardrobe. This is purely because I can’t fit it in our small bedroom. It’s proven to be a very useful place to have drawers and bench space. I hang my necklaces on the wardrobe rail where I can see them, and keep my makeup on the dresser top. Having my necklaces stored this way has made a huge difference in how often I use them.
In the past, I used a necklace stand but found the sparse spacing meant the necklances got tangled and I couldn’t see them clearly. I found this (pictured below) wooden necklace stand online which seperates the necklaces nicely.
2. Makeup Organiser
I store makeup in a cosmetic organiser. I purchased mine (pictured below) from Priceline. I can easily see where everything is and this makes putting on a quick splash of makeup a breeze.
I found these makeup organisers online:
3. Earrings, brooches & dress rings
I spotted this gorgeous dress shelf (pictured left) in a little shop called Vintage Primrose and thought it would make a lovely jewellery organiser. Isn’t it happy? I keep the majority of necklaces away from my earrings so they don’t get lost. I also keep my dress rings and brooches on the shelves.

I enjoy wearing my jewellery! It brings a little bit of happiness into my day. And you know what? The children notice too.
Daughter 1 & 2 wear my necklaces sometimes.
Daughter 3 always will ooo and aah when I wear a necklace
