We spend a third of our lifetime in our beds, so why not splurge on top, very top quality bedding?  If you search “Luxury Sheets” you’ll find that this brand is usually the first of the results, and for good reason.

Frette Luxury Bedding and Fine Linens is the holy grail of bedding and is the choice for many of the world’s finest hotels! They have a timeless beauty and are known for durability, so if anyone knows anything about sheets they DEFINITELY know these! The price may be steep, but they will last you a LIFETIME and you will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud for the rest of your life!

I always say “less is more” and if you have 2-3 sets of these sheets, that is all you will ever need for 10-20 years! Yes, they last forever and you will be so happy going to bed and waking up with the highest quality fabric wrapped around your body. Truly the epitome of glam, Frette lives up to the hype!

Hopes Honey Farm

What is a Bombette to do for her honey? Get him a Bee Farm, of course!


Back in December, I began the process of installing honeybees in Malibu so I could make Honey for my Honey!  I created beautiful jars, customized a logo and it was only until recently that my husband and I suited up and shared our first apiculture experience together!

The process of keeping and maintaining bees is actually quite simple when you compare it with the incredible impact it has on our world! Bees play a crucial role, not only in the homemade face masks and body scrubs I create, but in pollinating our food and the food of animals that we then consume! So without them, our ecosystem would deteriorate and we would not have the fruits and vegetables that we eat today!

This gift is not only a wonderful addition to our Malibu community, but more importantly, the sweetness that bees bring both inside and outside our home was a metaphor for the sweetness my wonderful husband brings to our family and so many others.

In addition to the honey that bee’s produce, they also produce something called Royal Jelly which contains insurmountable health benefits and is a NECESSITY for EVERYONE. In terms of daily personal care, if I had to place this in an order of importance, it would go: (1) sleep, (2) water, (3) royal jelly.  It is more important than any daily multivitamin or supplement and I use it EVERYDAY for health and beauty! Royal Jelly is a special substance secreted by worker bees for the queen bee to eat. It has more nutrients than honey and contains certain proteins that:

  • Increase fertility
  • Increase metabolism
  • Increase collagen production
  • Increase stamina
  • Regulate insulin levels
  • Regulate hormones
  • Aid weight loss
  • Boost immunity
  • Ease menopausal symptoms
  • Decrease acne
  • Fight cancer

Although we make our own, you can buy this in most health foods stores like Whole Foods. I also really like another honey product called Bee Panacea. It contains a mixture of royal jelly and other superfoods and it is SO unbelievably nutrient-dense, you almost don’t mind the astronomical price!

Xo,

Bombette

Get Regal With Primal Print Decor

Animal-prints are a fashion favorite but they are one of those elements that can be hit or miss if you don’t use them the right way. The golden-rule of thumb is to treat animal-patterned furniture as a neutral color in order to strike the right balance! Whether it’s zebra, snake or leopard, these primal prints have a unique way of aligning both feminine and masculine energies in any room because they exude glamour and sensuality yet contain grounded and earthy elements. Looking best when combined with dark and bold colors, animal prints actually bring a busy room together and make the room feel more refined, intimate and cozy!

TIP: We love the print on chairs, rugs or wall paper! If you want to go for an extremely glamorous look; pair a few furniture pieces in a room with dark wooden floors, velvet, pops of color (like teal or yellow) and brass accents!  In addition, if you have a library or den area in your home, animal printed furniture really draws the eye and makes the room feel regal.

MUST-HAVES FOR AN ELEGANT VANITY

Tara Fingold | Style at Home845361051930f92f89248948f0c74605193eb484d95627b50d80e242ed0ff3db3881c54d312c195c4668f374468a02c5b6b6063527c1446b4cf181fe44d8343e

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.

  1. 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!
  2. 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.  
  3. 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. 
  4. 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!   
  5. 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:

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!

TIPS:

  1. Brunch should not have a water glass. Sundays are a time for conserving water and drinking wine. Lots of it.
  2. For every two place settings there should be a small vase of fresh flowers. We love to use either roses or peonys for our table.
  3. Silverware and flatware should always match.
  4. Pretty place cards make a difference. (We recommend separating couples and placing quiet individuals next to livelier personalities to get conversations flowing.)
  5. Always remember that “BRUNCH” is the socially acceptable excuse to drink before noon.

Coffee Table Etiquette

13a2ecc4a3382d729d267a6782c48a12

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

A Place You’ve Never Been

mustique_2435pj-by806_fixspa_j_20141203132746

We’re taking you to a place you’ve never been before – Mustique. This island, located in the West Indies, was originally used in the 17th century by pirates to hide their ships and treasure and then in the 18th century it became a place where Europeans grew sugar cane. Today, the island is now privately owned and it’s residences and guests include: Princess Margarete, Mick Jagger, Tommy Hilfiger, as well as a vacation spot for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Hope and Robert celebrated their birthdays together at Tommy Hilfiger’s home called “Palm Villa”, and flew their families out to continue the celebration throughout the Thanksgiving weekend.

Tommy’s chic villa is SO BOMBETTE! It used to be an old beach cottage but was transformed into a 10 bedroom home with 4 one bedroom guest homes made out of coral stone to withstand beachy weather conditions.  Tommy’s home was inspired by the blue prints of Oliver Messel, a famous English set designer who built a number of important properties, including a home for Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon in the 60’s.  Ranging from palm grove gardens with blue-stone walkways, a pool that meets the sand and a library with all the first edition James Bond books–there was no better place for Hope and Robert’s family to spend Thanksgiving.
