I love to declutter. Give me a trash bag and a free afternoon and I’ll toss everything but my wedding band.
Naturally, because of that hobby of mine, I’m really able to see the few key pieces I always have to have in my home. And if you couldn’t tell by my over posting of them the past few years, GLAMboxes is one of them.
How did I fall in love with an acrylic box? Lemmmmme ‘splain.
When I moved to Dallas I knew no one except one other coworker and my now husband. He was working to get his CPA and my other coworker had a huge circle of friends at church, so I spent a lot of time just sitting on the couch. Combine that with one too many Homegoods gift cards I had received for graduation meant I
fell in love created an unhealthy addition of decorating my apartment.
The bathroom was a difficult one because I wanted it to stay clean and sleek, but I’m a Texas girl. I had a heart attack with Blair Waldorf told Serena she had a bit too much mascara on in one episode of Gossip Girl [is there such a thing?] and I always have at least 14 lipsticks in my purse at all times. How does one organize that mess while keeping it cute?
I thought I’d pull a Kardashian and search for an acrylic box. I tried TJ Maxx, I tried The Container Store and I tried Target. Mind you, all these places have organizational tools. My debit card can attest. I tried it all. I even tried apothecary jars from Pottery Barn. But everything would break or get grimy within a few weeks. I couldn’t fit every little piece or it looked like a cluttered mess [the apothecary jars]. So I went into a black hole on instagram and came out finding GLAMboxes.
I ordered my first box, the makeup box [I have the full lid], and I became addicted. They stay so clean and I have dropped it a hundred times while it stayed perfectly in tact. I also have the jewelry organizer. I gave my mom the makeup and jewelry box for Mother’s Day and she still requests more!
Because I post this all the time and think this is the ultimate Christmas gift, I worked with them to create a discount code specifically for my followers. They are offering 30% off to JUST Chronicles of Frivolity readers as well as a free lipstick holder! And if you are in the first 20 orders, you will receive a free pink GLAMboxes travel makeup bag! They sold out but set aside 20 just for this sale. This will also come in time for Christmas! Just use code: Katey at checkout!
I can’t even begin to describe how much this means that they are doing this for my followers. This isn’t a collaboration in any way shape or form, they just always see kind comments from you all about this brand and wanted to treat you all for Christmas! So please please please tell them thank you on social media if you can!
I hope this helps you have one of my must haves in your home and allows you to feel pampered while you get ready each morning! Every girl deserves that. 🙂 I’ll also include my makeup/jewelry must haves below that you see in these photos!
