Beauty Confession: I’m Not a Student But…

I always sign up the Container Store College Weekend Sales. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!

Hello, I’m the Muse, I spend way too much time at the Container Store.

So, I’m like one of those people that puts everything into containers and labels those containers and puts those containers into other containers. Yeah, it’s a brutal cycle. I suspect if I become organized enough I’ll finally reach the ultimate zen state. Kinda like a Sim gaining the teleport skill after over achieving at yoga. No idea what that means? Watch more Joseph Birdsong videos.

But, anyway, you know what? I have a theory that all makeup junkies love the Container Store and Ikea. We’re always looking for ways to arrange and rearrange our makeup storage and of course, find new ones. But let’s face it the Container Store doesn’t always have any good sales.

Beauty confession, I’m not a student but I totally sign up for the Container Store College Weekend Sale anyway. No, this is not an affiliate or sponsored post even if it sounds like one! I just really like spending hours in the store particularly when I have 20% off.

So, just a heads up, you can sign up for the next sale at www.containerstore.com/collegeinvite and they’ll text you and email you the weekend of the sale. Head into the store, show ’em the text or e-mail, and snag yourself 20% off your total cost.

Simple, easy, awesomeness.

Got a beauty confession you need to get off your chest?

Share it here!

Disclosure: I wasn’t paid to post this, I’m just a Container Store junkie!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    My beauty confession…I drive to Orlando, Fl, which BTW, is 240 miles away from where I live in the panhandle, to go shopping at ikea, Container Store and the Mall at Millenia. I will even go so far as to book a hotel room close to the mall and stay the night so I can have 2 days shopping. Yes, I am sick. But, life is too short and I want my LV and Tiffany and Co. Judge if you must. You are not alone Ms. Muse. 😉

      Well, I’ve never gone that far because luckily my area has some awesome malls. However, I do plan weekend getaways with my husband around malls. Like I will stay at the hotel near the best shopping in the area and go shopping while he sleeps in.

      And I totally signed up for that Container Store reminder. Thanks!
