I’ll Be in My Dressing Room!

I, like every other fashion-obsessed person, always wanted to have a big ‘ol closet.  I have a small closet at home that has always been a struggle to keep neat and tidy.  So, when the kiddo got old enough that he didn’t need a toy room anymore, I pounced on the opportunity to make-over the room into my own dressing room.

We had the desk in the room already, so creating a vanity for myself was a simple task.  Just add a make-up mirror and some make-up, and I was good to go.  I kept the computer and printer in the room for the kiddo’s homework and for blogging too!  Get the lighted make-up mirror from AmazonThe desk is from WayfairThe chair is from Amazon.  I get my plexiglass make-up organizers from various places, but here is a good one on Amazon.

This small wardrobe with shelving is a great place to display some of my handbags, and I use it for skirts and cardigans.  I use these Loungefly mini-backpacks for Cons and theme park visits because they hold everything I need, and they are super cute and great for bounding.  For Loungefly’s website, click hereThe wardrobe is from Target.

This cube storage unit is from Target from ages ago.  I actually traded furniture from Benji here.  He obviously did not want pink furniture in his room anymore, and I love pink, so it worked out.  I replaced the pastel cubes with cubes from Dollar Tree.  The vignette on the wall I put together with items from the 99 Cent Store.  The bat light is from Amazon.

The wicker high-boy is the first piece of furniture I ever bought for myself back in 1990.  I will have it always.  The shield I glittered it myself because my shield got all scratched up, so I rehabbed it.  Click here for instructions.

This clothing rack is from Bed Bath and Beyond.  It has shoe storage below and a shelf on top.  I keep my dresses here because they are much heavier.  And finally, the large zip-up wardrobes hold our cosplays and we’ve had them forever.  We purchased them at Bed Bath and Beyond.

So, I took the room and built it wall by wall to give myself the dressing room of my dreams.  I hope I’ve inspired you to do a make-over of a space within your space.

Love, Kim and Benji

 

Fashion Alert: Avengers Make-up at Ulta

While I wait for everyone to see “Avengers Endgame” this week, I thought I would highlight some great new products available at Ulta, in stores and online.

Ulta-Beauty-x-Marvel-Avengers-Makeup-Collection

They released a great make-up line inspired by “Avengers Endgame” with an eyeshadow pallet, four lip glosses, four matte lipsticks and three make-up bags.

I got two of the make-up bags and love them!  I got the smallest one for my purse and the medium sized one for travel.

I didn’t have an opportunity to try the eye shadows or the lip glosses, but the good word is that they are both great.

I did get two shades of matte lipsticks.  Both have a nice feel, good amount of pigment and aren’t drying.  I tried them both, and they lasted all day.

Get your own loot at Ulta’s site here.

Happy Shopping!

Love, Kim and Benji
