Timree Discovery

A couple of years ago, my daughter and I went to Michael’s to pick up a marquee letter for my baby boy’s nursery. While I was there (as usual) I could not pass up a browse at the dollar bins. I was so happy when I saw a darling collection that was screaming “Boudoir.” There …

Cosmetic Vending Machine

I was traveling on business to Las Vegas earlier this week. Whilst walking through the airport in LV this vending machine caught my eye and stopped me right in my tracks. A vending machine that sells cosmetics!!! Plus, it’s super adorable looking like a little pink caravan. Benefit Cosmetics should be real proud…job well done! …

A Cure for Cotton

In a quest to try to organize my boudoir (I say “quest” because I share the boudoir with my husband and my desk doubles as my vanity…ugh…this is why you’ve yet to see photos of the “boudoir”), I was in need of one place to store all of my cotton. Cotton balls, Q-tips and my Chanel …

Chanel Inspired Sofa

Look what I found, ladies…a Chanel inspired sofa! Wish this was around when I did the Chanel Inspired Boudoir post (although I guess this would be more appropriate for a living room). This beautiful sofa (reminiscent of the Chanel 2.55 handbag with quilted leather) is from The New Traditionalists. It also comes in other colors, …

Harlem Toile

I found out about Harlem Toile, by designer Sheila Bridges, in a magazine recently and immediately wanted to share it with you.   Many people say that I have an old soul. I am very drawn to historic times, although all too often depictions of American History are very one-sided and leave out the important role of African American …

Lingerie Luggage

On a recent trip to Miami Beach I visited the Bal Harbour Shops. It was actually the first time I had stepped foot into an Agent Provocateur. Among all of the beautiful luxurious items fit for a boudoir, I spotted these fine pieces of luggage! Aren’t they divine? Dare I say, I fancy them more …

Elizabeth Taylor Collection at Christie’s

As a child in the 1980’s, I can remember adults talking about Elizabeth Taylor in a somewhat negative light. At the time, I only knew her by her “White Diamonds” look. With big hair and looking like she stepped off the set of Dynasty.   What I didn’t recognize at the time (which I’m ashamed …

Lady Head Vase Obsession

A little over three years ago I learned of a lovely little item that is perfectly suited for a boudoir. The lady head vase. I was reading the spring 2008 issue of O at Home when I came upon an article showcasing the home of event planner, Mindy Weiss, who is best known for her …

St. Vincent de Boudoir

Ok, I’ll admit, as much as I love a garage sale, thrift shops creep me out a little bit. Not today though! This morning I decided to go to the local St. Vincent de Paul to look for some vases or figurines that I could spray paint and upcycle into cute centerpieces for my cousins …

Guess Who’s Coming to Town…

Yep, that’s right! The most fabulous macaron shop in the world is coming to NYC! This opulent patisserie is located in the upper east side at 864 Madison Avenue. Yes, I know that there are many other bakeries that sell macarons in NYC, but I’m a sucker for fancy packaging and, well, their packaging makes …
