DIY Lipstick Organization

My lipstick collection was a mess!

I followed EnKore's tutorial on youtube using a cardboard box and a box that a perfume set had come in.  I customized the length and width of the cardboard strips to fit the box perfectly.

I'm so happy I didn't have to spend any money or order one of those lipstick organizer on ebay!

New Zealand Trip!

This May I was lucky enough to be able to go on a month-long trip to New Zealand as part of a course on Indigenous identities to learn about the Aboriginal peoples there, the Māori. We spent a couple of days in Auckland and a couple days on the south island but most of the month was spent in the Wellington area.
