Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Boxes For Vanity


My favorite chocolates are Ferrero Rocher, coz I prefer chocolates that have nuts or wafers in them. Plain ones are boring unless they're Belgian. Everyone gifts them to me almost every occasion. But every time I have to throw away the empty boxes, I feel kinda guilty. So I use them for storing stuff, well...until they break or something.
Here's what I store in them:

1. Lipsticks ~ Bottoms up! So you can see the shades. It can hold about 20 lipsticks.



2. Jewelry ~ Just my pearl necklaces and key chains for now


3. Cotton pads/balls, tissues, Q-tips ~ Transfer your cotton balls/pad from those polythene packets that look out-of-place on your vanity table.


You can prettify your boxes too. For me, it's Hello Kitty stickers ;) .
Blushes & lip balms also go in the boxes.

If you stash your makeup randomly in a drawer, you can neatly compartmentalize your drawer using the FR boxes. This will save you a lot of time- no more rummaging through your stuff to get the things you want.

So, what do do with your Ferrero Rocher Chocolate boxes? Please don't tell me you throw them away! =D

  1. i did have one rocher box that i used to store my bracelets, but it broke so i threw it away. i do have two larger chocolate boxes that are made of better plastic. i don't think they'll ever break. the lids are hinged from one side too. thumbs up to sensible storing! i am obsessed with keeping my things neat. :)

  2. Rima- Oh so cool that yr large ones are hinged too! I have one but don't know if it's hinged coz I haven't opened it. I wish I was obsessed at keeping things neat too...I'm kinda disorganized...well, until I absolutely have to keep everything in order ;p

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
