How to Create your very own Home Spa

Hi Loves!

I don’t know about you, but I love going to spa because of the relaxing ambience and luxurious pampering. Don’t you think that it’ll be wonderful if we can integrate elements of the luxurious spa into our own home and bathroom? Here are my ideas on how you can create your own Home Spa in your bathroom! 🙂

1. Get Inspired

First of all, decide on what concept you would like. Do you prefer clean and fresh decor, blue and comfy or brown and cosy?

Clean & Fresh. Refer to online product catalog here.20152_coba10a_01_PH121841

Blue and Comfy. Refer to online product catalog here20134_coba10a_01_PE362683

Brown, warm and cosy. Refer to online product catalog here.

2. Get Scented

A Spa’s relaxing ambience is created with the warmth of lighted candles and soothing scents. Decide on your favourite scents, candles and candle holders to create your own scented haven.

3. Wrap up in Style

Hotels and Spas always use thick and comfy towels, now that’s the way to conclude your Home Spa experience!

Bedroom Makeover under $300

Hi Loves!

It feels like a while since I last published a post (just check it was 1 week ago)… Time is whizzing by incredibly fast isn’t it? >u<

One of the things I accomplished over my fruitful weekend was to pay a visit to IKEA to pick up items for a mini Bedroom Makeover under $300!

IKEA SG Room Mini Makeover 003 IKEA SG Room Mini Makeover 002

I’ve long wanted to get a laptop cushion, for when I use my laptop while on the sofa or on the bed, and I finally found Byllan ($29.90). I got it with the white cover and a multicoloured cushion cover, so pretty! It’s also available in grey, for all you monochrome lovers. There is also a matching swivel chair which I think would be super lovely as guest chairs in a creative office space (note to self; bookmark for future office, hehe). I also got a lovely new quilt and pillow casing in Angsskara ($14.90) and a Tejn faux sheepskin rug ($19.90) which I think makes my room look super snug and comfy~

I’ve accumulated quite an amount of shoes and products from my own vanity creativity and from blogging. Thus it has resulted in the need to put in 2 shelves in the last year, when my room’s wall was originally clear/ empty. HAHA. And I also just acquired Breim Wardrobe ($39.90), with all the miscellaneous items that were piling up in my room. It’s super affordable and relatively easy to put together (my sister helped to put them together, thanks Er Jie!!!).IKEA SG Room Mini Makeover 005

I decided to get Ditte fabric ($4.90) and cover the shelves by attaching it with Velcro to the top of the shelves and also hem it down with SY Iron on hemming strip ($2.90) at the bottom. I’m thinking of going back to buy a few more fabrics from the wonderful array available so I can switch them from time to time! 🙂

I thank God for SKUBB shoe box ($14,90, Set of 4), they’re seriously god-sent! Bless those clever designers. These replace the odd shape and coloured shoe boxes that my shoes come in, so they look so much better now when stacked together. Plus, the design allows me to see through into the mesh and easily take out the shoes! I’m super stoked and happy with them! 😀 They also come in Pink and White colours~ They’re only 16cm high, so they can’t fit shoes taller than that, but as they’re pretty long (34cm), as long as the shoes aren’t too wide, you can still fit them in, lying down. I got a total of 5 sets. Yes, I have more than 20 pairs of shoes. That’s why I need to store most of them in my own room cause my family’s shoe cabinets ain’t got enough space for me. Hahaha. 😛

To get more bed & bathroom makeover inspiration, check out IKEA’s online bedroom gallery here and bathroom gallery here as well as this hilarious video on “How to Improve your Private Life”:

There’s also a cool microsite as part of this “Private Life” campaign with product info integrated into the slideshows, check it out here!
