Every Bombette needs a beauty spot. Whether it’s a little nook in your closet, a place in the bathroom, or at your desk, there’s nothing like a special place where you can comfortably sit and devote a few minutes to yourself. Read below for the EXACT things you need to create the perfect vanity.
A gorgeous mirror– The best part about not buying a vanity with a built in mirror is that you can choose the mirror you want and make it look rustic, modern, glamorous or minimal. We’re loving these mirrors below!
Natural Light– Natural light is crucial for ensuring your makeup is on point. Whenever possible, try to place your vanity near a window or at least in a bright room. This will help you with contouring and creating evenly winged eyes. If that is not an option, go for a lamp with a yellow-ish shade because it will offer the brightest light.
Perfume tray– There is something so elegant and feminine about a perfume tray! This decorative element neatly organizes all your perfumes in one place and gives the illusion of more space on your vanity.
The right seating– We would all love a giant glamorous chair, however, it is best to use a stool because it forces you to sit up, engage your core and focus on the task at hand. We are totally obsessed with these chic and affordable stools from Target!
Ambiance– Nothing sets the mood better than beautiful candles and a little vase of flowers. Vanities should be your happy place where you can center yourself and feel confident so place 2-3 things on your vanity that bring you pleasure. Whether it’s your favorite candle, a small vase of flowers or a photo with your best friends. These are a few things we have on our vanity:
Why spend hundreds of dollars at the spa when you can create the ultimate pampering experience at home! Here are 6 must-haves for your at home spa:
Beautiful towels– If you think about it, towels are a household staple that can lasts for years. So it is worthwhile to go for plush, high quality, 100% cotton towels because they will last longer and look nicer in your bathroom.
Fruit filled water– Cucumber, strawberries, grapefruit or blueberries! Whatever your heart desires. Adding fruit to a glass pitcher of water will get you to drink more water and these pitchers are super sleek and modern! After all, what is a spa without the yummy cucumber water?
Oils– Adding essential oils to a bath are simple and luxurious. They not only smell amazing and leave our skin feeling extra soft, but they have profound health effects on our bodies. Lavender relieves insomnia, Frankincense relieves anxiety, Peppermint relieves headaches, Clary Sage relieves PMS, etc.
Candles– One thing that we take very seriously are candles. Our current favorites are Diptyque, Voluspa and Jo Malone!
Body Scrubs– We like to make our own natural and organic body scrub at home with honey, lemon and sugar, however, we also LOVE using these ones as well because they smell divine!
Face Masks– YES, a spa night is not a spa night without a facial! These face masks are high quality and will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated!
Tree branches are a MUST HAVE in your home! They are one of the easiest and chicest ways to decorate! You can use them in centerpieces or in large floor vases to create a minimal yet romantic and elegant design. Super simple, extremely affordable and they make a HUGE statement in any room! Especially in March when Cherry Blossoms are known to bloom, these beauties are truly the decor trend of the month!

Ahh the perfect coffee table. They say simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, and this could not hold more truth for when it comes to designing your home. Coffee tables are a very personal thing and they are the first thing a guest will take notice to when seated in your living room so you want to make sure it a) represents your personality and b) is organized. Less is more. Follow these three guidelines to creating the perfect coffee table:
The basic principle for a coffee table is the rule of threes. This means you should have at least three different items on your table. If your coffee table is larger, however, you can add more.
The next thing are levels. Levels attract the eye and make a space visually interesting to look at. Play with how you stack books or place an object on top of them. A vintage magnifying glass, paper weight or candle looks great on top or next to stacked books.
Once you’ve gotten your books down, the third item is an element of nature. This can be in the form of a small vase of flowers, a large orchid plant, a giant seashell, an arrangement of succulents, a candle, etc.
Coffee tables are a way to express, impress and spark conversation with guests. Have fun with it.
