No She Shed? No Problem! 6 products to Create a Spa-like Sanctuary at Home

A year ago, we were forced to transform our homes, no matter how large or small, into multi-purpose spaces. At first, I was fine with it, until I came to the realization that I was NEVER alone. Close girlfriends would text me at all hours of the day telling me how they were hiding in their bathrooms and closets to (lovingly) escape their family members. Friend zooms became quite hilarious when I noticed the varied backgrounds. Some were crouching in a corner of their bathroom, some in the actual bathtub, one friend surrounded by shoe boxes, and one underneath her desk.

My “She Shed” zone quickly became, and still is, my bathroom. Even though we are allowed to live life again outdoors, on an everyday level, I’m not off at a beach house or a spa (although I’d like to be!). Most of the day, especially when it is 95 degrees and humid in New York City, is spent indoors with my 1-year-old. Here are BELLA Family’s favorite items to bring some “She Shed” vibes to your space:

Malicious Women Co. Candles and Diffusers

First of all, not only do these products smell delicious, but their labels are absolutely hilarious and will no doubt make you laugh with names like “Diffuse the Chaos” and

Please Leave By 9:00 – Infused with ‘Seriously…Get Out!”. My favorite candle scent   “Cabernet All Day”(don’t mind if I do!) evokes a strong sweet grape aroma with hints of strawberries and sugar.
