When I think about what I'd like to illustrate,
I always feel like a kid in a candy store.
There are so many things I find inspiring
and items of daily beauty are one ...


... after all, there are so many delights
on our dressing tables that are so visually lovely ...

I've been thinking about creating some illustrations of
beauty vignettes sometime soon that would be perfect
as prints for a dressing room ...
don't you love vignettes?

We all know that sparkly jewelry and perfume bottles would
make an appearance in those illustrations ...

... but seemingly simple, everyday items are also very intriguing
and beg to be included.
Here are a few of those ordinary things
that I'm sure would look magical in a vignette illustration ...

... beautiful compacts ...

...  sparkly eyeshadows...

... colorful eyeliner pencils ...

... brushes ...

... mascara wands ...

... an eyelash curler ...

... and, of course, I'd have an array of
bobby pins, clips and barrettes
to choose from ...

Don't you think there is magic in the everyday
items that we see every morning?
Are there any other things you'd love to see in a
beauty vignette?
Do tell!

See you Friday, beauties!

Oh, Sandy, I just took some photos of similiar things for a future blogpost.
That was my thought, too!!!
Every day with it's own glamour is inspiring for our soul and our well-being.
So enjoy your day full of glamour and glitter, to feel like the star in your own film!
Love, Ines

Hi dear, how are you? I love coming here for gorgeous inspiration and beautiful imagery. I need to appreciate those little magic everyday things a little more.

So gorgeous Sandy. It always amazes me how you find the beauty and "girly" in everything. The only girl I know who can make awnings look sexy ;-)
That collection of bobbi pins is stunning.

Beauty products do make the loveliest vignettes especially since their packaging is so pretty these days. I personally love the look of those fluffy powder puffs :)

Happy Hump Day Sandy!

Definately compacts! A big fluffy powder puff or brush. Lipstick. Pearls. And a good bottle of perfume. Really, what more could a girl want?!

Dreamy post! Thanks lovely....xoxo
