Vanity Tour - The Dainty Squid

Vanity Tour

Tuesday, March 03, 2015


I've been living in new apartment for just under two months now. All the rooms are done-ish, meaning that each one has at least one or two little things that I want to find or fix up somehow. The main thing my office is missing is lockers. I've been looking like crazy for them but haven't found the right ones yet. I just can't get over the idea of having them, so much so that I keep putting off my housewarming party. Must. Find. Lockers!

Even though I'm still working on the rest of this room I wanted to share some photos of my vanity area today. Since I took the bigger of the two bedrooms for my office there wasn't really room for my vanity in my bedroom. My office has two windows that, as luck would have it, my vanity fits perfectly between. I knew immediately that's where it was going. Since those two windows get the best lighting out of all the others in the apartment, it was obvious where my plants would go. So basically, it's an amazing little area. I feel like a goddess everyday while putting on my make-up surrounded by plants.


I love it here. Seriously, this apartment is just perfect. Can't wait to share more photos of it as I find the finishing touches for each room!

  3. I love all the greenery! I've been wanting to purchase sturdy plants to put in my office, to make it feel more "homey". You've inspired me to go ahead and do so!

    1. Aren't they!? The hands were kind of expensive for what they are but they were one of those things that I just had to have. They're too good!

    1. Thanks, Elise. Me too! I definitely wasn't fond of them at first but now I can't imagine having white walls.

  8. Love your decor, wow! The dark furniture and gold accents look sooo good with all the cacti (which I adore as well!). Your cat is too cute.

    1. Thanks! Nope, there's a link to it in the post. ;)

    2. I'm sure I'm just missing it but I can't seem to find the link for the bench under the vanity/writing desk. Did it come with the desk?

    3. Ohh!!! I am so sorry! I thought you meant the vanity itself, like you'd call something a "work bench" I though you were calling it a vanity bench. Hah.

      Aaaaanyway, its from Target, and last I saw I think it was on clearance.

      Sorry again about that. Brain fart! :P

  16. I see many lipsticks in your drawer! Can you do a beauty post of the products you use and recommend? You might already have one, I just couldn't find it under the FAQ. Thanks! I always love the pictures.

  17. Gorgeous! I need a real vanity area. I'm working with a small bedside cabinet table thing as my storage and a stool in front of my full-length mirror. It works, but isn't ideal!

    1. Thanks, Kim! Yeah, nothing beats having a nice dedicated area to doing your hair + make up. I've never been the type of person to be able to do it in front of the bathroom mirror.

  20. Firstly, this whole set-up is GORGEOUS. Secondly, weird thing to notice, but are you sad that the St. Ives exfoliating pads are discontinued? :'(

    1. I've actually never used them. I'm not very brand loyal when it comes to that kind of stuff.
