Ep 141 – 15+ Ways to Make Your Vanity Totally Instagram-Worthy With Curation Queens Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo of A Thing or Two

October 28, 2020

Who’s up for a little vanity re-decorating while we’re spending so much time at home? The perfect duo to help us out are Brooklyn-based curation queens Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo of A Thing or Two. You may remember them from the wildly popular (and sadly shuttered) e-commerce platform “Of a Kind,” where their knack for identifying the next big things in shopping and design landed them a spot on Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list, while Fashionista dubbed them the “Most Influential People in New York Fashion Right Now.”

Do you dream of a vanity like Violette’s?

Or are you all-out Kylie?

In today’s episode, Claire and Erica dish on every single thing you could want to create your dream beauty space, from the perfect, double-duty vanity desk, to the best makeup organizers, to the ‘it’ wall colours, dry flower advice, shower curtains and more! (Guys, we even got excited about trash cans?! ) If you haven’t already, sign up for Claire and Erica’s “10 Things” newsletter, where they expand their enthusiasm for new discoveries across even more lifestyle topics. You won’t wanna shop for your home without their two cents!
