Glam Up Your Bathroom 3 Ways

Say it with me no ugly bathrooms! Often times our bathrooms are not thought of as a room to decorate or a room that can be fashionable and functional. Outside of coordinating towels and a cute shower curtain what are other steps you can take to give your bathroom a little more flair? I’m glad you asked! Here are three very simple ways to class up your powder room.

  1. Presentation is everything! Take certain bathroom items out of their packaging like Q-tips, cotton rounds/balls, soap, etc. and place them in jars, decorative containers, trays, etc.PhotoGrid_1518880036716
  2. Show off your fragrances. Not only it is pleasing to the eye but it’s easy to see what fragrance you want to use that day!PhotoGrid_1518879942314
  3. Roll your towels. It’s stylish and fun! Find a big basket or stack them on top of each other. Atypical ways to show off and store your towels definitely adds a little something to your bathroom. PhotoGrid_1518879700004

Bonus tip: Clear your vanity off. The less clutter on your counter top the more aesthetically pleasing and the cleaner the counter top stays.

Are you running off to glam up your bathroom?

Coffee Table Styling

Are you a knick-knack person? Do you like tchotchkes? I do! I use my knick-knacks to add a flair to tables, bookshelves, etc. I use them as something extra or finishing touches.

I feel like your coffee table just screams for little decorative extras. Why not? I don’t drink coffee so I have no other choice. JK. The coffee table is such a versatile piece and often times it’s the center piece of a room, so have a little fun with it.

You can go in many different directions with coffee table styling depending on the fashion or the function of the room. This is were knick-knacks or tchotchkes come in. You can add these in to make something functional look fabulous.

Here are a few examples of different styles and pieces that create different looks.

As you can see you have quite a few options to mix and match I incorporated pictures, flowers, and books. You can add or take away just depends on your preference or the aesthetic of the room. You can have fun with color or stick to a theme.

What do you think?

Let me give you a little back ground: Tatcha skincare is made in Japan and inspired by beauty secrets of Japanese Geishas. The ingredients in each product are carefully selected and minimally manipulated to be safe and gentle for maximum effectiveness.

I have four different products from Tatcha That have worked wonders on my skin.

  3. The water cream
  4. The deep cleanse

The one step camellia cleansing oil is a blend of camellia oil, rice brand oil, red algae, and green tea. It removes everything off your face and leaves you feeling clean, soft, and supple.

The classic rice enzyme powder is an exfoliant, cleanser, and toner in one! It is a water active powder that is a blend of rice and papaya extracts that release debris from your skin to leave you feeling super soft. It is also formulated with pearl which is a natural skin conditioner.

The water cream O.M.G I cannot say enough about this product it has transformed my skincare routine! I LOVE it so much! The water cream is anti-aging, refreshing, and pore-perfecting. The cream releases a burst of skin-improving nutrients to hydrate and prep skin.

The deep cleanse is a clarifying cleanser made with Japanese luffa fruit extract. The deep cleanse lifts impurities, unclogs pores, and balance skin’s moisture for a healthy glow.

Tatcha skincare is formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, or TEA. They are non-comedogenic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and dermatologist tested. In other words GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN!

The packaging in cute and the product is amazing. I cannot say enough good things about these products and this brand!

K Beauty: Trendy or Trusted

Allow me to drop some knowledge on you this hump day. K Beauty or Korean Beauty is the term for skin care products derived from South Korea. These products focus on health, hydration, and complexion.

The typical K Beauty regimen involves cleansers (oil and water based), sheet masks, moisturizers, serums, and essences.

Two K Beauty brands I’m highlighting are TonyMoly and Skin Food.

From TonyMoly we have the Egg Pore tightening cooling pack and a Megatox lift shot. Both are masks each one focused on complexion which is one of the concentrations of K Beauty. The Egg Pore mask helps with tightening and shrinking pores and the lift shot focuses on an overall face lift.

From Skin Food we have the Peach Sake toner, Peach Sake serum, and Rice Brightening makeup remover wipes. The focus of these products is hydration and brightening.

My favorite are the Rice makeup remover wipes. Best makeup remover wipes ever! They don’t sting, they remove all the makeup from your face, and you get 80 per pack for $12!

The Peach Sake toner is a close second. It’s refreshing and smells amazing!

All items were purchased at Ulta.

Bottom Line: K Beauty is a must! My skin is soft, clear, and even toned. I’ve even noticed a change in my pores (winning)!

Have you tried any K Beauty products?

How Cute! Themed!

Each month has a different theme and the product range is pretty impressive. I have received items from Cover FX, IT Cosmetics, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Too Faced, Makeup Forever, and Smashbox just to name a few. The samples are indeed deluxe, some of the samples I have received I will use quite a while before I need to run to Sephora for a full size!

A few products I’ve gotten

The Play Box is in high demand so subscriptions are not available all the time; you can sign up for Sephora to notify you when a subscription is available.

My thoughts: for 10 bucks a month it’s a way to try new brands and also add variety to your beauty routine. I have been introduced to new brands that I now love and I’ve tried new products from brands I’ve loved and used for a while. I have enjoyed my box each month I’ve gotten it and I don’t see me cancelling anytime soon. What sets it apart from other beauty subscription boxes is that it’s from a brand (Sephora) I trust and love!

Live it. Love it. Style it.
