I must admit, I had totally preconceived notions about Mary Kay. In my mind, they were a bit outdated. Um, well, I am here to admit how wrong I am. I had a little Mary Kay party at my house a few nights ago with a few close friends and I really liked everything I got to try! We got to hang out, play around with some makeup, and it ended up being a lot of fun! I absolutely fell in love with their mascara. I have been on the lookout for a new mascara for a while. None of the mascaras I have received in my Ipsy bags over the last few months have wowed me. Everytime I use up whatever I am currently using I buy something new in hopes that this will be “the one”.

I’ve been desperately wanting a vanity table for our bedroom over the last few months but haven’t wanted to shell out the couple hundred dollars that I knew it would take to find a decent one. Nor have I had the time to even look! I’ve always stood at the bathroom sink to do my makeup and hair and therefore my bathroom sink always looks like an explosion of makeup, hair products, heat styling tools, brushes, combs, perfumes, nail polishes, etc. Completely out of control. Out of space and out of energy to continue standing at the sink every morning (thanks so much pregnancy), I decided that I had to find a vanity table STAT.
About a week ago while I was sitting on my couch thinking about my ideas for the nursery I started contemplating what to do with the office furniture. And then a light bulb came on. I had a desk that I needed to relocate, a mirror sitting in a closet downstairs, and a stool sitting in the corner of the living room collecting dust.
I’m planning on replacing the drawer pulls and painting the mirror. All of the furniture in our bedroom is very mix and match so eventually I’d like to paint our bed frame, dresser, and bedside tables all white. Or pick one piece to paint a bold bright color. We also desperately need to paint the walls a different color and I’d like to replace the stool all together with a new chair (maybe this one?) as it’s too tall for the desk and I can’t scoot forward to look in the mirror comfortably.
