my vanity table

I love vanity tables. There is something so feminine and personal about them – the perfumes we choose to wear and trinkets to display. Mine is a combination of family photographs, fragrances, make-up, jewellery, the odd crystal, lingerie, cinema tickets and few sentimental things.

My vintage chest of drawers is from Ebay and the mirror is from my local charity shop (when it comes to an upgrade, I will go for a huge Hollywood mirror with millions of bulbs). The boudoir stool is from George at Asda and I love that it has a storage for my hair styling tools and sex toys. It is surprisingly sturdy, comfortable and looks super cute.

I also adore my SAY SOMETHING IN FRENCH trinket dish from Hotel Magique for Anthropologie – £ 12. But my favourites are my family photographs – a wedding photo of my grandparents, a photo booth snap of my brother and a photographic evidence that my mother was (is) a hot and effortlessly stylish babe. The white angel candle was a gift from her (because I am such an angel -not).

I am renting a cute little flat in the coastal Westgate-on-Sea after turning my back on London. Since it is a rental, I can’t really paint or change anything. I decided to jazz up my plain walls with a tinsel curtain aka party wall. This is self-adhesive and takes a minute to put up. It certainly kissed a lot of glam into my bedroom.

I am into pearls, hoop earrings and statement rings. I do love obnoxious trophy earrings though (sorry, earlobes). The clear sparkly necklace hung over the mirror frame belonged to my maternal granny. I often wear it stacked up on my wrist as a layered bracelet.

..and the glow up post tinsel wall. Get yours here

To cover the nasty office-feel grey carpet, I have invested into super soft plush boho style rug. And when the days are not-so-sunny, I got a tripod ring light. It is super handy for shooting content and gives that perky skin glow. And of course, I had to add some green plants. They are an affordable way how to add a touch of nature into any living space. I also got a lovely selection of candles, but they now live in the sitting room and near my bathtub. I will also share my favourite fragrances with you soon and my lingerie drawer (I am a *little bit* obsessed with pretty smalls!).

I am still on a hunt for the perfect curtains but for now I am enjoying my sea views like an unlimited food buffet. What a starved Londoner after living in a damp basement in Angel & Islington!

SECOND SKIN UNDERWEAR BY BAM

I adore lingerie and underwear but I like combining style with comfort. Here I am chilling in my seamless Cloud Bamboo Bralette (size S) and a matching thong (10). The bra has adjustable straps for gentle support and there are no tags or labels (no more scratchy feeling or environmental waste). My favourite thing is just how soft the material feels against my skin; bamboo, viscose, polyamide and elastane is the perfect marriage of soft texture. The composition is extremely lightweight and kind to the most sensitive skin. The bralette comes in four natural colours. The fabric feels indulgent and…

THE BEST BAMBOO YOGA PANTS IN THE WORLD

In the last few months I have fallen Downward Dog over heels for Hatha Yoga. I used to be a Pilatina but yoga has stolen my heart and a couple inches off my waist! The first few sessions were spent in uncomfortable tight leggings which cut in all the wrong places. I found myself fidgeting during some poses and my tush felt exposed. BAM Clothing Grace Yoga Pants have elevated my yoga practice to another level and brought a complete sense of calm and freedom of movement. They are INCREDIBLY soft. I have to tell you that in capital letters…

GIFT GUIDE FOR HIM

Ladies, do you struggle with inspiration for Christmas gift ideas for men? I have done the hard part for you so you don’t have to. The best bit? These gifts are (mostly) unisex and great for sharing (whether he wants to or not). Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a new fragrance under that pretty tree. I absolutely adore Remarkable People by Etat Libre d’Orange . This is a very uplifting citrusy nectar with the note of Grapefruit and a Champagne Accord. Then the more sensual second-skin like Sandalwood, Black Pepper and comforting Cardamom join the party. It is beautifully unisex…
