Oh, I Design Blog Oh, I Design BlogIf you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen these two photos. They are both taken of my client’s beautiful home in Wellseley, Massachusetts. We spent the day on Friday framing her amazing collection of art (including a lot of family member’s creations and pieces from around the world) and decided to go ahead and begin the gallery wall. You can’t tell by the photos, but the rest of the wall up the stairs actually goes up another 15-20 feet and we have big plans to cover the entire thing! I am SO excited to share the project once it’s complete. Stay tuned!

I definitely have to say, one of my favorite parts about working with a client on a project is hearing the story behind each piece in her home. It’s the best way to get to know someone!

ps. how fun is that yellow door?!

Happy Monday everyone!

When I was younger, I would host slumber parties and we would apply face masks, paint our nails and read magazines while catching up on our current middle school crushes. Those were always the best nights. Really the only thing that has changed now in my pampering routine is I try to invite my husband to participate by wearing a face mask or new skin care product. Of course, it never happens. ;) There are times when I will come home ecstatic to try a new serum for my face or moisturizer and he just laughs. He doesn’t understand my love for skincare products and “weird” face masks that require yogurt and honey.

Anyway, my stories are never that great so I apologize and appreciate you sticking with me on this post. ;) As you can imagine, I was thrilled when Gianne of Organic Bath connected with me on instagram and sent some product my way to try! Organic Bath is a company that makes high quality, natural skincare  products ranging from body scrubs and lotion to body + face oils. They even have some of their product on the shelves of my favorite skincare shop, FollainOrganic Bath via Oh, I Design BlogRight when I received the package, I decided a night of pampering was just what the doctor ordered.Which included wine, soft tunes, a bubble bath followed by the Organic Lavender Sugar scrub and body oil. I have never really added a body scrub to my skin routine and I have to say, my skin has never felt so great! The lavender is soothing and relieves stress which is a huge bonus in my books. I read on Organic Bath’s instagram - they recommend using the Mint scrub on your feet which is now something I do every other night! Let’s just say, my feet are loving me right now.
Organic Bath via Oh, I Design BlogWhat I also love about Organic Bath is their original idea when starting the company: the importance of taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of others and the planet. For every purchase made, Organic Bath Co. will donate to 1% for the Planet and other charitable organizations. You can learn more about the companies they support and how they give, here.

We all deserve a little pampering once in a while, so why not make it a weekly routine?! Maybe grab all of your favorite girlfriends (or guy friends) and get together for a blast from the past spa night with tabloid magazines and pallets in the living room. Please invite me!! ;)

Do yourself a favor and peruse Organic Bath’s products…they truly are amazing!

Bon Voyage Millay Vintage!
I am sad, but also very happy, to share that my friend Mary of Millay Vintage will be leaving Boston this month to move to Philly. In the short time I have known Mary, she has become an everyday inspiration, supporter, the best doggie sitter and most importantly, one of my closest friends in Boston. For the event, Mary will be bringing in a few goodies from her shop and we will have drinks + treats along with many laughs (and hopefully not too many tears from this one)! If you happen to be in the Boston area tomorrow evening, feel free to stop by.
