I've been meaning to share this post for over two weeks now. It's shameful that I've left it so long. But seriously, I think life has just gotten in the way of blogging. Even scheduling posts. Yes, life is sad when there's no time to even schedule!

My best friend couldn't come to my birthday do back in September, but instead decided to purchase something she knew I'd love.

You see, I have a few accessories. Not as many clothes, but LOTS of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and scarves. And she found this amazing standing mirror-come-secret-cupboard-with-a-key.

See? You wouldn't know there was anything in this slim-line beauty!

I'm especially loving the key bit, because then little fingers can't break my cute things. (It's been known to happen before, just once or twice... I even have jewellery repair tools for this very purpose...)

Before I had my fancy new secret-hiding-place-mirror, this is how I use to have my things... on the dresser, and very easy access to toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Sure, it looks pretty, but seriously, how can you get all your trinkets out of a box like this?

I'm all for easy access, and colour coodination...

... like this.

It makes my inner OCD very happy.

(Thank you Nine for the cool present!)
