A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL Beauty Picks


I'm so happy to share this brand with you guys! I can honestly say that I've loved each and every L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL product I've tried. I'm completely sold on the brand as a whole, that I would order anything from them with full confidence, so I feel very comfortable telling you that you can too! That being said, let me tell you all about the particular products I've been trying so far.

First, my very favorite, is the L'BRI lipstick in Sugarplum. In addition to the beautiful color, the formula is so moisturizing. With ingredients like shea butter, jojobo oil, grapeseed oil, and Vitamin E oil; it's no surprise this lipstick does such a good job at moisturizing. It also contains aloe, an ingredient found in all of the L'BRI skin care and body care products.




You can see in the pictures above that it's a very wearable red with a beautiful hint of shimmer!

The Volumizing Mascara and Velvet-Touch Eye Liner in Black Shimmer have become favorites as well. I have severe eye allergies, and since I started using the L'BRI eyeliner and mascara, I haven't had itchy eyes after putting on makeup. I love the retractable eyeliner. It goes on smoothly and has a beautiful shimmer. The mascara is very volumizing and lengthening as well.

In addition to these other makeup products, L'BRI was kind enough to let me create my own fall makeup palette, starting with the Go Dazzle Compact. With this compact, I was able to pick four long lasting powder eye shadow colors, a powder blush, and a dual finish powder.



L'BRI has so many beautiful eye shadow colors to pick from; including matte, pearl, and high pearl finishes. The ones I chose that are the High Pearl Eye Shadow in Pink Champagne, Pearl Eye Shadow in Cream GlowMatte Eye Shadow in Plum, and the Pearl Eye Shadow in Mocha. The shimmer on the High Pearl formula is so gorgeous, and the colors in the matte and pearl finishes are very buildable and blend together so well. I will be happily putting together a tutorial for you guys using this beautiful palette!

Also pictured in this palette is the Believable Finish Blush in Rose Sand and Perfect Finish Dual Action powder in Antique Beige. The blush is a beautiful rose color that works perfectly with my cool undertones. And though I picked it for this fall palette, I can see myself wearing it for spring as well.

The Perfect Finish Powder is aptly named. It gives very good coverage and creates the perfect matte effect, while also giving a very soft and natural-looking finish.


Last but not least, I have to mention the L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL Aloe Nourishing shampoo and conditioner. Just like their skincare, the hair care products at L'BRI contain healing aloe as the first ingredient. I love how it is free of sodium lauryl sulfate.

There are a lot of "moisturizing" hair care products out there which claim to contain all sorts of beneficial oils and botanicals, but a lot of them also contain sodium lauryl sulfate as the number one ingredient. Did you know that this particular ingredient causes dryness? Not cool, right? Go with L'BRI for a more affordable moisturizing hair care system. Not only did it moisturize my hair, but it made it sleek and shiny as well. And by the way, it smells great too...a nice fresh scent!
