Winter Accessories - All About Holiday Shopping Gear

Hi Everyone!  Can you believe Christmas is this Sunday?  Its crazy how quickly this month has flown by.  Not sure if you remember, but I mentioned that I am completely obsessed with accessories and while the main idea for this blog is organizing, interior design and DIYs, from time to time I will share my take on must-have accessories.  So with that being said, I want to share how I tackle last minute shopping in stylish, yet comfy and functional accessories.

Cosmopolitan Closet's Guide: Keeping Organized (or sane) During the Holidays

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Can you believe that Christmas is only 11 days away!  This year has really flown by, but I can't complain.  I am very thankful for all of this year's ups and downs and I am really looking forward to 2017 (I am a dreamer and a planner, what can I say).

Cosmopolitan Closets Makeover #5 - Coat Season

Good Evening!  Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and took the time to reflect on the many things that we have to be thankful for :) 

Given that the weather is finally cooling down here in the Northeast, it is definitely coat season.  If you are anything like me and love fall/winter fashion, you probably have a few stylish wool coats, plus the heavy down ones for winter storms and some cute leather jackets for when the weather is mild.

Cosmopolitan Closets Makeover #4 - Be Giving and Give Thanks

Happy Friday Everyone!  WOW!  What a week, right?  I think no matter what side of the election you were on, we have to keep moving forward and be thankful for everything we do have.  Easier said than done, but possible :-)  With that being said, I am very excited to share this post with you as it is near and dear to my heart and I think it could not have come at a better time.

Mail, Keys and Everything In Between

Happy Monday and happy election day eve, I cannot believe election day is almost here!  I am excited to share this post with you, not only because its a great way to stay organized, but it is also a DIY and by DIY, I just mean, I painted my cabinet a different color lol!   A couple years ago (I know, I can't believe I have been blogging for 3+ years), I wrote a post on setting up an office in virtually any space (if you didn't read the post, please check it out here).

A Fashionista's DIY

Hi Everyone, happy Monday (evening)!  From time to time, as I come across cool DIYs, I will feature them on my blog.  So with that being said, meet Ajah!  Ajah is a hair stylist extraordinaire, fashionista and avid DIYer.  Like all fashionistas, she was faced with the common closet dilemma - a lot of clothing and a less than ideal closet set up.  Check out our interview below, as well as her before and after pictures and stay on the look out for her DIY blog!

Organizing on Top of Organizing???

Hi Everyone!  So this is a super short post about how I organize on top of organizing lol or how I compartmentalize everything, literally.  Basically, its nice to buy organizers for your makeup or jewelry, but if the drawers are a mess, what purpose do they really serve?

The Cube Redo

Fall Accessories - All About Wedding Looks, Ready, Set, Sparkle!

Happy Friday and TGIF!  From time to time, I am going to share my latest and greatest accessory finds and styling.  I mean, what's better than accessories?  Recently, I went to the wedding of two of my friends from business school and I knew their wedding would be nothing short of spectacular!  I thought to myself, how can I look appropriate yet stylish without breaking the bank and I knew accessories were the way to go!

Setting the (small) Stage

Hi Everyone!  Happy Thursday!  Can you believe that we are past Labor Day?!  Its insane, I swear.  The summer literally flew by.  With that being said, however, I LOVE the fall and while its still warm outside, I do take the liberty to switch up my décor to suit the season.  If you missed my posts about how I updated my décor for spring and fall, you can find them here and here.

Cosmopolitan Closets Product Review: Style Selections Coated Wire Shelf

I'm Hi Everyone.  Happy Wednesday!  Is it hot where you live because its steaming in NJ/NYC!  I swear, in December, I will be wishing it was hot like this so I am gonna try not to complain too much.  Being someone that loves to organize and lives in an apartment with limited storage, I am always looking for clever ways to keep our apartment tidy without taking up too much of the little space we have. I swear for the past few months, I have been tripping over the broom, mop and dustpan, can you say ouch?

A Mirrored Armoire? Yes, Please, Again!

Hello, hello everyone!  Happy August!  Ok, I am late, August started a few days ago, but you know how it goes, the summer rolls around, you become obsessed with being outside and poof, its gone!  So, that explains it, I have been outside lol.  Nonetheless, my love for organizing, DIY, decorating and more have not fallen to the wayside and neither has my love for mirrored furniture.

Cosmopolitan Closets Customizing: Reupholster It!

Hello everyone!  Hope that your June is off to a good start!  Given that its spring/summer, naturally I am working on DIYs a-plenty and I have been meaning to post about this one for awhile.  My bf has an ottoman that has seen better days, let me tell you lol.  However, I thought to myself that it can definitely be revived with a new cushion and some fabric. 

Shorin It!

Ever since I moved to NJ in September of 2014, I have been determined to experience all that Jersey has to offer, especially during the summer and especially the shore!  Last summer I ventured out with a few of my girlfriends and I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the beach was (we went to Long Branch) and how all the colorful umbrellas looked as I gazed down the shoreline.

Cosmopolitan Closet's Spring Solutions - The Wardrobe Edit Rules Part 1

Happy May everyone!  Every season since moving to Jersey City, I go through the painful job of switching my clothing from storage to my closet.  Unfortunately, space is tight and there is no way in the world I can keep all of those clothes in my one tiny closet throughout the year.  However, this challenge has forced me to examine why I hoard so many clothes and what am I gonna do about it!  Does anyone else have this problem?  I am sure I am not the only one, lol.

Styling into Spring!

Happy April everyone!  I hope that you are as excited as I am for a new season.  Although, in NYC/NJ it seems that winter has looped back around unfortunately.  However, that's not gonna stop me as I am already in full swing with restyling my décor for the season.  If you missed my "fallerizing" or "winterizing" posts, you can find them here and here, where I highlighted some simple ways to change your décor as the seasons change.

Cosmopolitan Closets Small Kitchen Organizing Series - The Revamped Refrigerator

Happy Friday everyone!  Can you believe that Spring is just around the corner?  It's insane how fast and mild this winter has been, which isn't entirely bad, but I still have a plethora of winter fashion I haven't worn yet!  Ahhhh!  Any who, here is the last entry in my small kitchen organizing series, all about the refrigerator.  I am sooooo obsessed with having a clean, organized and well stocked refrigerator and I have found by doing so, I don't overbuy in the market and old food gets dumped right away.

Cosmopolitan Closets Small Kitchen Organizing Series - The Exposed Pantry

Hi Everyone!  Happy Friday!  I am sure I am not the only one looking forward to the weekend :)  The weather in NJ/NYC has been so unpredictable this month, its hard for me to leave the house on the weekends unless its warm!  So what do I do instead?  Well, organize of course!  If you missed my other two posts in this organizing series, you can find them here and here.

Cosmopolitan Closets Small Kitchen Organizing Series - The Anywhere Counter

Hi Everyone!  Happy Sunday.  Since everyone is snowed in or trying to shovel themselves out of this blizzard in NYC/NJ, I figured now is a good time to share this post in my small kitchen organizing series.  If you didn't get to read the first post, you can find it here!

Cosmopolitan Closets Small Kitchen Organizing Series - The Wire Rack

Hola friends!  I hope that 2016 is off to an incredible to start for all of you!  I know I started this year with a renewed spirit and can-do attitude, much like I do at the start of every new year.  One promise I make to myself continually throughout the year is to eat healthy and consistently exercise, lol. Sound familiar?  I am sure that you can relate.  Well, this thought inspired me to do an organizing series on small kitchens since a big part of my healthy eating involves cooking vs. take-out and I find that the only way for me to really be successful at meal prep is by having an organized, easily accessible kitchen.
