Travel Bucket List

travel bucket list

After going to Ireland this past May, I have serious travel fever. There are so many places I want to go, so many things I want to do, but unfortunately I have to be an adult and it sucks. I really am considering starting a travel fund and once I reach a certain amount, take the time to go visit places, even if I go on my own!

While having this want, I have a huuuge bucket list that I’ve been developing in my head over time and I figured, why not put it all into words for you guys? Maybe we have similar wants (and we can do them together!).

  • Go shopping in New York City
  • See Central Park during Christmas time
  • See a show on Broadway
  • Visit Big Ben
  • Ride a double decker bus in London
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Swim in the clear water of the Philippines
  • Go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras
  • Attend Oktoberfest
  • Backpack through Europe
  • Go to King’s Cross in London
  • Go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
  • Visit castles in Scotland
  • See the cherry blossoms in Japan
  • Toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain
  • Swim with dolphins
  • Swim under a waterfall
  • Ride in a gondola
  • Tour the Warner Bros studio in London
  • Visit Wynott’s Wands in Massachusetts
  • Go to the Bonnaroo music festival for the entire time
  • Stay in a hostel in a European town
  • Go to Disney World
  • Go on the Graffiti tour in Berlin
  • Walk across the Charles Bridge in Prague

My Dream Vanity ft. Arhaus

my dream vanity

Calling all beauty and makeup lovers… I know you have thought about what your dream vanity would look like! If you haven’t, I sure have for the both of us. Ever since I started truly getting into the world of makeup, I have had a “makeshift” vanity made from my small circle mirror and a desk that was clearly meant for a desktop computer. It’s not the most practical but it works. That being said, I have always lusted for the perfect vanity to sit down at, take photos, and just play with my collection.

Today, I am bringing you the design for my dream vanity. This is what I hope will some day grace the presence of my tiny one-bedroom apartment (if my dog doesn’t turn into a monster truck and start a demo-derby in my bedroom… like he does almost every day).

After scouring Arhaus’s website and Pinterest, I think I am set on my perfect vanity and definitely want to start saving up to build this masterpiece.

For my lighting, I definitely would love to have the vanity light bulbs (like the pin below) around the mirror but I don’t know if that means I have to have a specific mirror or not. If I don’t have to, then I’m eyeballing Genevieve Oval Mirror.

As far as lighting for decor/accents, I am obsessed with this Flower Pendant light. Ideally, I would love to have two or three hanging up above my vanity area where they would be useful and attractive to the eye. This is just one of many gorgeous lighting options that Arhaus has to offer.

Of course, I’m also obsessed with the shelving units that are in that vanity above. I looked them up and they are actually called Lack shelves and they would be ideal to go on either side of my vanity set-up for easy access to things I use a lot as well as adding some decor to the shelves at the very top and bottom, as those wouldn’t be as practical to use while sitting at the vanity.

Speaking of sitting, I honestly fell in love with this chair when looking at the selection they had on Arhaus. It is perfect off-white/gray combination that I feel like would look good with the rest of the pieces I have picked out.

As far as the actual desk and further storage on the desk, I definitely want something built upon a set of two Alex drawers. Eventually, I think I’d want to get the Alex nine drawers but that would be for additional storage while these would be the foundation of the desk. All I’d have to add is the base on top to make the desk top (like the photo below).


On top of the desk, I really want to get some of the acrylic containers/drawers for the things that I use every day. Plus, this would make it where I could actually display some of my makeup instead of just storing it. I love the set-up on the desk in the picture below but I probably would want a bit more space to work on rather than covered with the storage.


And that’s it, guys! Can you picture it in your head? I seriously want drooling over the image I have of this set-up. I have no idea where I would fit it in my apartment but, hopefully, by the time I finally get the money for this, I’ll be in a bigger place!

What does your dream vanity look like? Tell me in the comments below!

We are constantly getting extremely cold winters and I never dress how I should. I have a few wants that I think would help me both look good and stay warm during these next few snowy months.
