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.

My Thoughts:

My skin is more supple and soft thanks to the collagen + retinol serum which I do use daily. Also Skyn Island products are amazing for stressed skin PERIOD! The hydro cooling gels work wonders on tired eyes! The Tarte chrome paints are seriously pigmented and give any look life! The Miss spa hydrogel lip treatment leaves my lips feeling moisturized and smooth. Last but not least my brand new baby Fenty match stick one word… BOMB. Stay tuned for a whole post dedicated to my love for Fenty Beauty!

Items were purchased at Ulta, Sephora, and Marshalls.

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?

Project Bar Cart

I’ve been working on this project for quite some time and I’m still not done  but I wanted to share my progress!

I’m not really a drinker but I like the idea of a bar cart. For me it’s more about fashion rather than function (as are most things in my life lol).

I’ve been buying a few things here and there for my bar cart. I have a few glasses, cute paper straws, a tray, etc. but no actual bar cart.

The latest addition to my cart-less bar cart are decanters!  I was shopping in an antique store where I found three gorgeous vintage crystal decanters. I bought all three for 20 bucks!

I decided to take the bits and pieces I have collected so far and do a faux bar cart styling.

I have a few more pieces but I’m on the search for the perfect bar cart. I would like something with a least two levels and with gold accents.

What do you think so far?

Vision Board: 2018 and Beyond

Hello! I figured what better way to kick off 2018 then with a vision board for the brand new year! Now I’ve never put much stock in vision boards but my mindset and my goals have evolved so much over the last year that I thought a vision board would be a good way for me to keep track of what I’m working toward.

 

vision2018

Now my vision board is a little different. These are more affirmations and encouragements to keep me pushing and going after my goals. Life can get a bit heavy sometimes and we all need a reminder of not only what we’re striving for but how great we are! Can I get an Amen!?

My vision board can and probably will transcend past 2018 which is why I wrote 2018 and beyond.

Do you have a vision board? What’s on your board?

Live it. Love it. Visualize it.
