A Cure for Cotton

In a quest to try to organize my boudoir (I say “quest” because I share the boudoir with my husband and my desk doubles as my vanity…ugh…this is why you’ve yet to see photos of the “boudoir”), I was in need of one place to store all of my cotton. Cotton balls, Q-tips and my Chanel Le Coton, that is.

Previously, I had my Q-tips in this little pink glass votive holder (that I picked up at the dollar store or something).

I had my cotton balls in this green faux alligator skin container.

And, my Le Coton was in it’s original packaging.

Then, one day on a shopping trip to Ulta, I saw this perfect little container that looked like it was made specifically for my three of my “cottons”. Clearly it was made for Q-tips and cotton balls, but it was really special because of the perfect space for the Chanel Le Coton (which I guarantee the manufacturers didn’t have in mind).

This container is made by Caboodles. Yep, that’s right. It’s the mature version of that one you probably had years ago. I think I was in 6th grade when I got my first Caboodle. It was the same pink/mint green/peach one as shown in the below photos. Although mine was decorated extra special with some sweet New Kids on the Block stickers. If I’m not mistaken, I believe this fine antique still lives in my mum’s attic.
