A Merry Makeup Room

Hey everyone! After a brief blog break following Non-Stop November, I'm back! :) In case you can't tell, I love Christmas, as well as all the decorating that goes with it! Along with my Christmas trees and candles in the main area of our home, I don't neglect the makeup room when it comes to getting festive! And it's all PINK! Here's a quick tour of my decorations...

I have a mini Christmas tree in front of my window... I got it very cheap a couple of seasons ago from Big Lots (it was just bare, undecorated). It seems like almost every store is coming out with a more colorful array of ornaments, and I believe I found this mini velvet hot pink tree skirt at Big Lots as well. I just draped it over a container on top of my stool so the tree could sort of peek out the window. It's covered with white lights, pink polka dot ribbon, pink ball ornaments in a variety of finishes, and best of all- CUPCAKES!

I found these pink cupcake ornaments last season at Wal-Mart and I think they're just the cutest things! I have a few red ones on our big tree as well. Cupcake has successfully batted a few of these off the tree!

Here's my bookshelf, which appears in the background of most of my videos. I can't remember where I found this string of pink LED lights, but like I said, non-traditional Christmas colors are popping up everywhere! I also have my lipstick lamp from Target glowing on top of the bookcase!

I love the larger size on these lights- and I'm seriously thinking about leaving them up year-round.

Last but not least, my pink sequined santa hat! I found this at Walgreens a few weeks ago and decided to drape it over my tall mirror (when I'm not wearing it :) Hope you enjoyed this little tour! I'll probably blog about the rest of my decor at some point too.


Daily Nuggets...
  • Thanks to those who gave me such nice feedback on the Non-Stop November blogging. It really meant a lot to me.
  • I've plotted out my drugstore makeup gift bag video... two words: BIGGER & BETTER!
  • My Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer in Cinnamon Raisin Cookie makes me hungry when I put it on.
  • Made my own peppermint mocha this morning! Using my Keurig I put in a Cafe Escapes- Cafe Mocha k-cup. Then added some sugar free peppermint flavored coffee mate creamer. It rocked!
