Earlier this week, I took a couple of personal days off from work to recoup from a hectic work week and Easter weekend. It was definitely one of the best decisions I made in a while, because I was able to to just relax and unwind. However, I did use some of this time to do some long overdue cleaning, organizing, and home styling. For me, when I’m thinking about styling my home, I look at it as creating a vibe. When I think about the vibe I want to create, I think about what I usually do in that space and how I can enhance my happiness when in said space.
Of course, everyone’s aesthetic is different. However, there are some core elements that almost anyone can use to help make their space more in tune with their overall vibe. Keep reading to see what items anyone can use to set up their ideal space.
Today is the first official day of Spring and looks and feels like a cloudy fall day outside my window.

As a struggling minimalist, I always get a warm and exciting feeling when I stumble across multipurpose item. Case in point; valet mirrors. Valet mirrors are my new obsession and finding the perfect one for me is my new goal. A valet mirror is a simple piece of furniture that doubles as a mirror and mini catchall for things such as your jacket, keys, spare change, or other things that may reside in your pockets.
After weeks of bookmarking every valet mirror I stumbled upon, I finally dwindled the list down to only a few.
Like I mentioned yesterday, I want to start doing weekly decluttering. One area that I’ve grown accustomed to decluttering regularly is my makeup collection. It’s not at big as the one that 20-something me had, but it’s a perfectly curated makeup collection for mid-30s me. FYI, curating makeup and beauty stashes can be hard.
It took me years to get the courage to throw away makeup and beauty products I don’t use. It’s so beneficial to your life by having a curated makeup stash. Keep reading to see some tips to keep in mind the next time you decide to curate your makeup stash.
