There is one place that is simply my favorite place in the world, more than SPA's and more than any shop, one where I can get lost in my thoughts, take long relaxing bubble baths, play with my make up, listen to music whilst getting ready, and that place is my bathroom. When I got married and moved house I was lucky enough to move into flat where I got my own bathroom (bliss!) and since then I've been creating a little sanctuary of relaxation...
One of my favorite things is taking long baths with gorgeously scented products, one of my favorite is a milky soak which smells absolutely divine and the name is just so convincing!
I only have a regular size bathroom but I've invested in a Jacuzzi bath tub (not that much more expensive I was surprised to find out!) and it's amazing! It;s like having your own little SPA at home...
I love swimming and being at sea.. so my bathroom's decor has and underwater and beach feel to it...
I collect sea shells and put them in big glass jars on shelves
I also have a collection of fish, I got these candle shaped ones in Capri on my honey moon.
This comes all the way from Mexico!
I use Dermaogica products every day - my favorite is
My auntie hand embroidered a set of towels for me- it's such a special gift...
I couldn't fit my dressing table in my previous tiny flat but I finally got it back and I am so happy! It's much more than just a place where I get my make up done...
I have photos of special people, happy memories, postcards from exhibitions I loved and cut-outs of photogrphers that inspire me. It's like a growing life-moodboard!
Some of my favorite make up
I sware by Shu Uemura black eyeliner, it's the best I've ever used Shu Uemura painting liner £20. And I love YSL's Le Rouge Pur Couture and Bobbi Brown Rose Shimmer Brick Compact £30.50 for a bit of facial glow!
I LOVE anything at Bliss Spa my favorite products at the moment are the scrubbing lemon+sage body soap bars and the "cellulite stimulator"... I'm such a beauty junkie!
Another favorite scrub is the Organic Pharmacy Cleopatra's Body Scrub- it smells of roses and is very effective, leaves skin soft and clean.
I keep all my make up in Muji stackable plastic boxes and label the contents. Obsessive (I know) but it saves me time and i always find what I need in no time!
I travel a lot and sometimes from one day to te next- so I always have my make-up and wash bag ready to go with all the things I need. I keep travel size products from hotels so that I can carry them in my handabg. I love Anya's travel pouches and I am building up a small selection of matching product.
This is my Ikea two-sided box of nail-stuff: one side holds all my polishes and the other all my tools..
And when Ive had a really long day and I want to give myself a real treat I use Clarins Foot Beauty Treatment Cream £20
My scents: Prada's Fleur d'Orange and Jo Malone
And my favourite relaxing scented candle
And finally, I love mt storage! I get my white wicker containers from John Lewis and arrange them on my shelves. John Lewis has a great selection here
