Keeping Organised: Seeking an Organiser Phone & Beauty Diaries

Every so often, I'll feel disorganised and want to review my methods. Using notebooks for lists - so pretty - but quite useless to me. 009copy I'm in the market for a good organiser-camera-phone. There are so many out there! Anyone using one, any to recommend? Speaking of being organised, yesterday I threw out the nylon net shower scrubby that I've been using for months! Eww. I wonder how many germs and bacteria have grown there. I need to get down to Daiso or the supermarket to find some more cheap ones, so I can throw them out more often. I tend to forget how long I've been using one. So I was thinking I shall make it a habit to throw it out and change to a new one every first of the month. I also read that some people keep beauty diaries. That means, they write down when they did a particular mask or treatment and also keep their beauty appointments like facials etc in the diary. I was thinking it might be a good idea for me to keep track of what I use and when I use something. This is because just recently, my skin got up to it's usual allergy-sensitivity nonsense again. And I couldn't identify what caused it. Very extensive and bad peeling and tight, painful dryness around the mouth, nose and cheeks! And it happened in the fingers and web part of my fingers too. As usual it's the hydrocortisone that saved me but one shouldn't use it too often. If you've been diagnosed with ezcema or allergic skin reactions, you'll probably be prescribed this too. It is a steriod and should be used in a limited way, not regularly. But it is really "miraculous" in a way that no moisturiser or cream can be. Cleared up my allergic reaction within days. Here are some notebooks I found recently. Very pretty, made in Korea notebooks. I use these for journaling and noting ideas. 004copy The insides are filled with different types of paper like this. Very few repetitions. 006copy © Copyright. All rights reserved.

I have a Palm Centro and it's great for keeping track of things. I used to have little notebooks with me everywhere (still carry one in my purse just in case, haha) but the Centro has a memo program to write down simple notes, and even a program that mimics MS Office programs...camera quality isn't that great, but it works.

I have a little notebook where I write down the names of make-up used in magazines or looks, so I can check it out in real life ;).
But it's not as cute as yours...These are adorable ^_^.

i can't stop myself from hydrocortisone too.. :( is that bad?? what are the side effects?? :((

hi miracle, hydrocortisone has general negative side effects that most online medical journals will tell you. but those will happen if you overdose or use too much over too long a period. there are harmful effects to unborn children so if in future you are pregnant/planning to get pregnant, you should stop using it. the less serious side effects include the skin having a negative reaction to it, after some time. my doctor did tell me the higher doses will thin the skin ... but some online sources deny this. as with any medication, I'd think it's best to limit usage to when necessary and not overdose yourself or become too dependent on it. ^__^ hope this helps!
