Today marks the first post in a monthly series called, Boudoir Essentials. Inspired by yesterday’s post, I thought I would begin with The Powder Puff.

Upcycling: Granny Gold to Girly Glamour

I love it when I find a garage sale where you truly feel like you’re stepping back in time (as long as it’s from a fabulous era). I stopped at a garage sale this past fall, and it was clear that everything belonged to an elderly woman who had held onto her precious items her …

135 Days…

A little blue box…the way to a woman’s heart (ok, not really, but it helps)

This Tiffany & Co. porcelain box is a lovely gift that I received from a co-worker a few years back. I absolutely love it and have deemed it a must-have for the boudoir. I don’t see that they are still selling this size on the Tiffany & Co. website, but they do have a mini …
