Jo Alcorn’s Master Bathroom Reveal

Two years ago when we purchased this home we knew ONE day we’d get to our master bathroom. It was dated and needed a good reno but we felt we could ‘live with it’ for a few years. Well, that one day finally came and we couldn’t be happier.

THE PLAN

When planning out our space, I looked at a few different configurations. Ultimately, I was thinking I’d put a shower at the far end of our bathroom, install a smaller vanity, scooch the toilet over and have a claw foot tub where the existing bath was. I think this would have made for a really functional space. That thought changed pretty quickly over a weekend when we bought a new house. Surprise…WE’RE MOVING AGAIN!! With that said, we wanted to keep this reno on a tight budget. Things would stay where they were so that we wouldn’t need to move any plumbing and we could get things started right away.

TILE

First off, I fell in love with these tiles from StoneImpressions. They were a quick ship option, I LOVED the pattern and they were unlike anything I had seen before. I started playing with the idea of using the Avery tile as a feature wall and didn’t look back. I reached out to Stone Impressions and was over the moon when they wanted to collaborate on our project. They shipped us the hand selected carrara marble tiles all the way from San Diego. When I opened up the package I seriously couldn’t believe my eyes. The pattern on each individual tile looked so hand crafted and luxurious. I swear, we’re going to miss them in our new home.

VANITY

Next up, the vanity. We went with the 60″ Ashburn Vanity from Foremost, available online at The Home Depot Canada. It was the perfect size for our space and the color is GORGEOUS! My favorite part? That it has feet. It really looks like a piece of furniture. We decided to add an additional sink and it’s so functional for us. Before, we had so much counter space that we really didn’t need. We ordered the vanity online and it was shipped to our door (countertop, sinks and all).

FAUCETS &
HARDWARE

When it came to our faucets I decided to go with matte black. I really love that the faucets don’t match the hardware on the vanity. The mixed metals work so well in our bathroom. This also allowed me to incorporate a polished nickel shower head and some polished nickel in our vanity light. We ordered towel racks and our toilet paper holder in the same matte black collection from Pfister. They’re stunning! The moments of black in the room really work so well with everything else we have going on. It’s exclusive to The Home Depot Canada and I couldn’t be more thrilled to recommend it. The water ribbons as it pours, the design can work with any bathroom aesthetic, it came with an easy to install push to seal drain, it has a lifetime warranty AND there are other finishes to choose from. Major win!

SANIFLO

When planning our bathroom reno, we thought we’d be able to incorporate Saniflo into our project. When they explained to me how it worked, I jumped on the opportunity for a collaboration. In the end, we didn’t end up moving any plumbing and didn’t need to use their system but I can assure you… we’ll be using it in our next home and I’ll be telling my friends about it. What is it exactly? Let me explain:

The Saniflo Sanicompact macerating toilet is the system that I’m referring to. Get this, if you’re looking to install a toilet in a trailer, a cottage, a basement or anywhere else that typically requires you to move plumbing, the Sanicompact allows you to quickly and easily add a new bathroom without any major construction! There is no need to break the concrete or move plumbing lines because the Sanicompact can tie into your existing lines. The best part about this system is the tankless design which makes it great for smaller spaces – and looks very modern, too. Sounds pretty great right? I thought so. 

Well, that’s a wrap. Thanks so much for checking out our Master Bathroom Reno. We love it! Stay tuned for future renos in our new house. I can’t wait to start planning.

Master the world’s most popular programming language online for under $40

TwitterFacebook

In an industry where the spotlight is always focused on shiny new things, it’s basically unprecedented that a two-decade-old programming language like JavaScript is still thriving. If JavaScript were a person, it could now buy alcohol, rent a car, and blow money on slot machines in Vegas.

The backbone of over 95% of ALL websites, it’s considered to be the world’s most popular programming language. But even with its ubiquity, JavaScript also remains the most misunderstood language, too. Novice coders usually mistake it for Java, or relegate it to a mere scripting language rather than a full-blown programming language. Little do they know that JavaScript is also used for databases, servers, animations, visual effects, and a whole lot more. Read more…

Master and Dynamic Partners With Johnny Dowell

Johnny “King Nerd” Dowell has teamed with Master and Dynamic.
The London-based artist, who graduated from Central Saint Martins, has hand-engraved 10 MH40 Over-Ear headphones.
Dowell, who spent 15 years engraving at James Purdey and Sons, a British gunmaker, is known for working with some leading watch brands but had more room to play with this partnership.
“The sleek and modern designs of Master and Dynamic headphones combined with the premium quality and materials have always stood out to me as a product with engraving potential and here we are,” said Dowell. “For this particular project I was inspired by a traditional scrolling style, which starts with a nice curve and features ornate details that flow back and forth between the patterns, juxtaposing classic techniques with contemporary product.”
The headphones, which retail for $ 999, are available to purchase now. Master and Dynamic has previously worked with filmmaker Sam Kolder and architect David Adjaye.

FASHION TIPS:

Charlotte Tilbury’s Party Takeover: 5 looks to master for the holiday season

It’s time to shine…

Christmas is the perfect opportunity to up the ante, so we asked celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury to create five stand out looks especially for Marie Claire. Prepare to wow.

Glitter Ball

Whether you want high-octane glitz or just a hint of sparkle, this look is playful, easy-to-do and will take your party look from zero to hero. ‘Start off with a flawless canvas,’ says make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury. Here, she used her Magic Away Concealer, £24   and Light Wonder Foundation, £32. You’ll also want to apply concealer to your lids and under-eye area to give the glitter something to adhere to,’ adds Tilbury who shared her exclusive pro tips on this shoot.

‘Then, pat the loose, chunky flecks over the top with your ring finger, working fast, before they sets. Finish with one coat of mascara, applied just at the roots, to keep it looking modern.’ Try  Sleek Glitterfest Biodegradable Glitter in Silver, £5.49, and Yves Saint Laurent The Curler Mascara in Black, £26.

Guilty Secrets

Chocolate and gold: The winning make-up combination for every skin tone. But the festive season gives us license to be more adventurous, so take yourself out of your beauty comfort zone and use metallics to pump up the drama. You’ll need to start with a glossy complexion, so give dull skin a light-bulb moment with Charlotte Tilbury’s Bar of Gold Palette, £49, which delivers a metallic sheen to cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow.

For sculpted eyes, sweep Chanel’s Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Chocolate Brown, £26, over lids before dabbing sparkly Tom Ford’s Shadow Extreme in TFX2 Gold, £30, onto the inner corners. ‘The key is to blend, blend, blend with a make-up brush so the two tones meld seamlessly,’ says Tilbury. To enhance the mouth, she swiped her Matte Revolution Lipstick in Birkin Brown, £24, onto model Veridiana’s lips.

Mad About Matte

Whatever else you wear, red lipstick will have you party-ready in seconds. This season’s top lip tip? Focus on the finish. Shiny can look OTT, but a velvety matte stamp is both chic and cool. Plus it’s all the more doable now that lipstick formulas are flexible and soft, rather than chalky and dense. ‘If you want to re-shape and re-size your lips and Cupid’s Bow, stencil first with a “stealth liner”,’ says Tilbury.

‘Trace the natural outline of your lips, correct any asymmetrical unevenness, then enhance the roundness by going slightly outside the lip line.’ Try Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Kiss n Tell, £16, and then press Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Tell Laura, £24, straight from the bullet onto your mouth.

Back to Black

Smoky eyes are elegant, mysterious and face lifting but can also be unnecessarily complicated and time-consuming to create. Tilbury’s technique involves just two products. Start off with a cream base such as BareMinerals’ Gen Nude Eyeshadow + Primer in Exposed, £19 to encourage anything you apply on top to stay put.

Then, use a small brush to create a chunky, feline shaped line of black shadow and sweep it down on to the lower lashline. Add a slick of black eyeliner for more intensity. We love Charlotte Tilbury’s Smoke shade from The Sophisticate Palette, £39, and the Classic Eye Pencil in Audrey, £16 – both are dark and matte. Mascara (try Legendary Lashes Volume 2, £25), brushed up brows, nude blush and flushed lips are just dressy enough.

Pink Power

Christmas is a time to get creative with colour but, instead of a rainbow palette, just stick to one shade. Tilbury chose millennial pink – unexpected, yes, but boy does it work. Step one: create a sheer makeup base. ‘I like to massage the skin with my Magic Cream, £70, to stimulate lymphatic drainage and boost circulation,’ she says.

Next up is a sweep of the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand, £29, over the tops of cheekbones, the tip of the nose and the inner corner of the eyes. ‘It gives this amazing spotlight sheen,’ says Tilbury. Add a light wash of rosy-coloured cream shadow to your lids – try Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow 16H Hold Waterproof in Rose Illusion, £20. Then apply Charlotte Tilbury Kissing Lipsticks in Velvet Underground, £24. Skip mascara, this look is impactful and fresher without it.
