I recently added a little vanity/getting ready area and a reading nook to Aliyana’s bedroom. I should’ve done the getting area a little earlier but I was definitely procrastinating…. nonetheless, it’s finally up and she LOVES it! The why behind this update is to promote more independence when getting ready in the morning or for bed each night. The little shelf holds a few of her favourite bow colours for the week, a bottle of moisturizer, a hair brush and a lip balm. She decorated the top of the mirror with two of her favourite toys. It’s actually so nice watching her do everything on her own but it’s also reminder that my little girl is growing up!

The next thing I added were some hooks so she can hang up her own coat, bag, cape etc. It took me a really long time to find the perfect peg hooks and I couldn’t be happier with how this turned once it was installed. I highly recommend them for anyone in the market for something similar!

Finally, a reading nook was added as part of this bedroom update. Aliyana loves reading and is very slowly dropping naps so on days when she needs to retreat to a spot for quiet time, this is where you’ll find her!
Eventually, my goal is to have both girls share a room (either with cute bunk beds or two smaller beds) but that’s a whole other post. I hope this was helpful! Feel free to send me any questions.
