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, …

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 …
