out with the old, in with the new {giveaway}

That seems to be the theme for me this week. Out with the old, in with the new. 
For example: 

This used to be my jewelry holder. I made it. I found the wood thing at DI and then painted it, sanded it, and added some screen to the back for my earrings. I liked it good enough...

But then my friend Becky sent me this in the mail! HOLY crap. Definitely out with the old, and in with the new. This is gorgeous. I love it so much. I am going to do a more detailed review on it this weekend but for now, just look at it's gorgeous-ness

I squealed when I opened it. She custom made this to match my room. Love her. 

Also, another thing that's going out, is this UGLY wood dresser we have. It's a monster. Super heavy, and has 70's flowers on it and its really beat up. So, today, I told myself I would start sanding it and scratching it up because that means I will look at it every day and be reminded to keep sanding till I can paint it black or white and add new knobs. Only problem is, this is going to be a bear of a project. Can I borrow someones electric sander? Please? I will do trade! So, out with the old look, can't wait to finish the new look. 

I also ordered a TON of makeup from elf! I love their makeup! It's cheap, but I have been using it for probably 5 years (here and there) and have loved everything I have purchased from them. I threw away my old eyeshadow, and opened my pallet of 65 eyeshadow, 4 bronzes, and 4 blushes. I love it. It was only $35 and I used it today. Out with the old makeup, in with the new. I also got some new brushes. 

Here is my face all done up! I also colored my hair a few weeks ago, to help get rid of the dark. Like the blonde?

Out with my old tooth, in with the new screw. OUCH. I got this done on Wed and have been in lots of pain. They literally screwed it in with a drill and cranked it with a wrench type thing. I noticed my skin is starting to grow on top of it, so now I am sure I will have to go in and have him cut that. Don't zoom in on this picture. I said don't. It's gross. 

So in honor of getting rid of the old, if anyone wants this, I am going to do a giveaway! Just leave a comment saying you want it (you can comment even if you don't wait it, just mention that you want it if you do) and I will draw the names out Monday. It's a little beaten up, but does the job, and has hooks on the bottom to hold your necklaces. It's kinda cute. 

So, giveaway starts now, ends Monday. Comment away. Share away. 

What are you getting rid of old and in with the new?

hey! Beautiful photos!
Question about the tooth thing. Are you missing a tooth there? And why did they screw that thing in?
I'm missing 2 teeth on the bottom in the same spot (one on either side) and they tell me they want to screw into my jaw to put in a face tooth. I've dragged my feet on it because it just sounds horribly painful and the missing teeth really don't bother me.

What are your thoughts on it?
