Fabulous Closet Makeover

Messy closet

Before

Two weeks before wrist surgery my BFF opened my closet door and shrieked in horror “you need to fix this!”.  She was right…my closet was a total mess and not cast friendly.  So we set out to create an organized, cast friendly closet that could be maintained with one hand.  The results…

After

After

Thanks to my friend’s creativity and vision we succeeded in making the perfect closet.  Now that I’m in an arm cast I realize that this reorganization has made my life so much easier and fabulous!  If you have time I recommend reevaluating your closet before becoming a bandaged beauty.  It will save you so much time and effort in the long run.

Get This Closet

We used the 4ft-8ft Classic White Deluxe starter closet kit from Martha Stewart at Home Depot.  Only $159 and free shipping. I also ordered two extra white shelves for additional storage.  We found baskets and wooden hangers at HomeGoods.

These baskets are perfect for easy access to yoga pants, pjs, and shorts.

How To Wash Your Face With One Hand

When you find yourself in an arm cast basic activities of daily living soon become monumental chores.  It is important for your mental and physical well being that you find new, one handed ways to take care of yourself.  Here’s an easy way to wash your face.  I use this routine every morning and alternate at night with the Clarisonic Mia brush.

Here's what you need...

Here’s what you need…

Step 1  Put hair in a headband and say goodbye to ponytails.  One handed ponytails are darn near impossible.  Please send me a message if you have perfected this task.

Step 2  Take a large cotton pad and wet with water.

Step 3  Apply wet cotton pad all over face and eyes to moisten the skin.

Step 4  Place wet cotton pad on the countertop and squeeze a quarter size amount of cleanser on the cotton pad.

Step 5  Scoop cleanser off cotton pad with hand and gently massage onto face and eye area.

Step 6  Take another large cotton pad and wet with water.

Step 7  Use wet cotton pad to rinse off cleanser.  You may need to use a couple pads for a complete rinse.

Step 8  Still have makeup on?  For a deep clean use a pre-moistened towelette to remove any remaining makeup.

By using these simple steps your face will feel fabulous, just as if you had cleansed with two hands!
