We're not gonna lie: our guest room, as we found it, was more like a petting zoo -- for unwanted critters -- than a potentially indulgent space for our friends to relax.

If it were up to me, the only place I'd have hair on my body is on my head and my eyebrows. The rest could just disappear forever, never to be seen again. Unfortunately that's not the case and I, like many women, spend countless hours shaving, waxing, plucking and enduring ridiculous amounts of pain, removing unwanted hair.
I wanted to share with you some answers to questions I am always asked in regards to my beauty routine. For example, what skincare line do I use? What makeup brands are my favourite? What tricks have I learned from makeup artists? Do I use Botox?

Consider, if you will, this bathroom: a veritable den of designer no no's. An ergonomic, stylistic and visual wash out, with little in its favour, it desperately needed to change. Petite?
