Proof that I should have less stuff.
When I moved into this flat, in the summer of 2015, I placed this writing desk into the living room, although I used to keep it in the bedroom of the old flat.
That means that, of course, I kept lots of stuff in it, but having it in a different room, I completely forgot about the things I stored here.
Here is what I found.
Before I properly get into it, let me say that I spared you from seeing lots of coins, bobby pins, markers, old brushes and stuff like that… I focused on the good stuff.
The first thing I’ve noticed, in one of the tiny drawers of the writing desk, were these photos. Two of me and my brother together, and two of just me.
Fun fact: I was a massive tomboy growing up, to the point that in elementary school I didn’t want to go to class because kids made fun of my interest in bugs and “toys for boys” rather than dolls and cutesy stuff.
I remember one day I was in English class, I was around 10 years old, maybe, and the teacher asked us to write a letter to Santa. I asked for an RV plane, and after we were all done writing she picked a few to read. She called me out saying: “Marzia, you know this is supposed to be what you want for Christmas, right?”
I was so confused, and asked if I had done something wrong. She made a remark on my taste of toys and asked why I was so “boy-ish” in front of everyone. I run out of the room and hid in the bathroom, crying, till a friend came to say that it was cool of me to pick something like that. I went home and asked my mom to never go back to school again.
Obviously, I got over it and kept going to school, but I wish I could tell my younger self that still – to this day – I love RC stuff, and it’s totally cool, and there is nothing to be ashamed of for liking things that aren’t considered “girly”.
Moving on, the next stuff I found, which surprised me a bit, was a bunch of brochures from my trip to New Orleans (from yeeeeears ago), a ticket from Japan, and a bag of sugar (I used to collect sugar, back in the day 😉 ).
If you didn’t know, 3 summers ago, Felix and I went to New Orleans and met up with Bunny for the first time. Such a wonderful holiday, and seeing these made me miss her!
If you don’t know who I’m referring to, look up Grav3yardGirl on Youtube.
I also found some adorable hair ties and ribbons. I believe I got the bear shaped ones from my trip to South Korea in April 2015!
Of course there was also some random stuff in there, like matches, band-aids, tissues… and dog toothpaste. Hahahahah.
Amazingly, I grabbed this box, and found some jewellery inside. It’s from Mr. Kate (her designs are so pretty) and in here there were these 3 tiny ear cuffs. Love them!
But now we begin with the “beauty” stuff. First in the list: these eyelashes.
I cannot remember why I got them, since I don’t often wear falsies, and if I do, they look way more natural then these, but I do really like the corner ones, so maybe I will just give the other pair to Emma.
Oh my! After all this time, now I finally know where my nail polish collection was!
Well, I’m glad I found it.
Also, notice how most polish tops are chewed. Thank you Edgar.
Since there was so much makeup, I grouped it into two: above is the liquid one. I can’t believe I had so much great stuff just hiding in this drawer. I’m hoping I can still use it – you know, usually makeup, especially liquids, have an expiry date, but these are all such great things! I will have to check all of them. *fingercrossed*
And here is the rest. I have some Tarte products, Meme eyeshadows, an Elf Palette, random eyeliners ad blushes, a chubby lip pencil, and crazy eyeshadow colours.
Can you believe how much stuff I had in the drawer?! Did anything like this ever happen to you? To just forget about something and find it years later? Let me know!
