A Tour of My Vanity

It’s a hot and sunny Sunday here in Maryland! The fiance and I are half way through our awesome three day weekend of gaming, relaxing and for me, blogging! As I had mentioned in my previous post, I turned our spare bedroom into what my fiance has dubbed “The Fortress of Makeuptude” (Superman reference for any confused readers). I had waited for the day to have my own space where I could have room to store all my awesome makeup and not have it overcrowd our bedroom, so when I say I was super duper excited, it is an understatement!

I’ve had my beauty space now for about a few months and I loooooooove it! I still need a few more home decor pieces but I like the way my vanity has turned out. I wanted to share with you guys my “workspace”, beware though! This post will be picture heavy to say the least!

Enjoy!

Day Sixteen: Barbie Inspired Look

Who didn’t grow up playing with the iconic doll? I had tons of Barbie dolls growing up and wanted to be Barbie when I grow up, that and a Spice Girl which I still kind of do cause I adore them! This challenge was somewhat of a challenge cause I am not blonde haired or blue eyed, so without a ton of peroxide and pricey contacts I decided whatever look came from this challenge there would be some bright pink!
