My Beauty Room // + Need Ideas From You! 

Hey loves, hope everyone’s weeks are going good! First off I want to say thank you for all of you lovely ladies who have followed my blog, commented or just supported me in any way thus far! I love this community and how supportive everyone is! I can’t wait to see your blogs grow as well as mine!

My husband and I who are newlyweds of six months are currently renting a 3 bedroom house. We are using one as our bedroom, the other as our computer room and lastly I get to use the third bedroom as my beauty/getting ready room!!! (Im taking full advantage of this before a baby comes and steals my beauty room away from me!) Because we are renting and don’t want to put a bunch of money into a house that isn’t ours I had to work with what I got! I had to jazz it up to the best of my abilities!

A couple months back my sweet, sweet, sweet husband surprised me while I was at bowling (Yes, totally dorky but I am on a bowling league and I’m quite good!  Crazy!) I came home and looked into the empty third bedroom to see this cute little vanity set up. He put together that corner desk, but this rustic mirror that’s leaning up against the wall and bought a small lighted vanity mirror. I was shocked and blown away by his kindness!!! Even though I wanted sleek, clean, all white furniture for my beauty room this is PERFECT because he put his heart and time into doing this for me and that is all that matters!

Since I am obsessed with thrifting, I found this awesome oval gold frame at the thrift store that was missing the glass for $0.50. I bought a spool of white lace for $1.00 and with a little cutting and gluing, I turned this frame into an earring holder!  I love this on my wall!!!

 

And lastly my newest addition to my beauty room is this garment rack I purchased from Amazon. This really completed the room! I love hanging my favorite pretty tops up, my purses and my new sun hat. The bonus is the built in shoe rack on the bottom! I just love this piece of furniture in my room. Plus it was only $18! I went to Target and a few other stores and they were all around $50! I think this piece is a must for a girls room!  Also, the cheetah print heart wall decal behind it is also from Amazon. I will put both links to these products down below!

I NEED YOUR BEAUTY TIPS LADIES!!!! // Currently I have all my makeup stored in a very large cosmetic bag. This is messy, unorganized and so frustrating! I see all the Ikea dressing tables and white storage pieces they have but I do not want to spend that kind of money. If you have ANY suggestions on makeup storage and organization for me please share in the comments!!! Thanks everyone!!!

Winter Hibernation // Don’t Get Lazy On Your Faith!

Here in Michigan, winter has hit us fast & hard. Usually by January we’ve already had a month of bitter cold temperatures to prepare our bodies. However this past December we had a very mild, actually warm winter month which is fantastic!!! But this past week it’s been frigid outside, the snow is falling hard & I am slowly becoming lazier & lazier!

Every winter I go into hibernation mode. I only wear oversized sweatshirts & sweat pants, I eat only junk food, & I never leave the house unless I absolutely have too. But the biggest issue here is I also become very lazy in my prayer life. I hardly pick up the bible, I lack on my church attendance and overall just check out for a couple of months. This is NOT acceptable. I know better. But this winter season I am making a change and digging deeper into the Word of God & embracing every moment I have. I will not allow the enemy to use my weaknesses against me.

This particular verse I came across and it really gave me motivation. Isaiah 40:8 states that even though everything around us seems to be withering away, the beautiful colors fade, trees and plants are dying, but that HIS word is alive & well!  It’s as beautiful as they come! The Word does not require sunshine, warm weather and beaches to be able to read it. Below are some bible verses that also give us motivation to not become lazy…

Proverbs 13:4 // “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.”

Proverbs 6:9 // ” How long will you lie there, O sluggard? When will you arise from arise from your sleep?”

Proverbs 10:5 // “He who gathers in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.”

So even if we are feeling quite lazy, cold and in a funk, let’s grab a delicious cup of coffee, a warm blanket and our bible and dig deeper into God’s word!!!

Xoxo // God Bless
