Creating a WoCave, a/k/a A Woman Cave

Have you ever heard of a WoCave, actually pronounced “wo-cah-vay?”  I haven’t either but it sure sounds enticing. We’ve all heard of man-caves, but what about us? What about the women? We need our own little spaces too right? A place to escape from the craziness of the day (or our kids) and just chill. YES, please.

This summer I’ve partnered up with Skinny Cow (YUM!) to go on a little journey of how I feel when I’m in my WoCave, or woman cave, and to get inspired to just be me and relax. And let me say, a WoCave doesn’t have to be somewhere too specific…not like a man’s dark basement with a too-big tv with ESPN blaring. A WoCave can be where YOU feel empowered and inspired. If that’s at the mall, Louis Vuitton, or your cute little home office, it doesn’t matter. Whether you are by yourselves or with your girlfriends, kicking up your heals where no guys are allowed and eating ice cream is always a winner.

WoCave

I’ll be going on a few missions they are sending me on this summer and I received my first box last week.

WoCave Box2

It was almost too pretty to open!

Inside were lots of goodies.

WoCave Box

So my first mission I get to go shopping! I know, poor me. But the fun part is that I will be meeting with a local designer in our town and will be doing some antiquing to find me some special pieces for my WoCave. I can’t wait! I think I want to add to our office area, so I’ll be looking for pieces for that. I’m keeping an open mind and it will be fun to have another’s perspective and to get their ideas as well. Maybe I’ll come home with a cow head or something. I do live in Texas after all.

Here’s a little funny…while I was pregnant, I once ate an entire box of the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. No joke. So me and Skinny Cow go way back. Now granted, eating an entire box is not healthy by any means, but I still laugh about it. I definitely don’t feel bad eating 1 treat though and can’t wait to indulge again. They are SO yummy.

Don’t you love Skinny Cow too? What about that WoCave? What do you dream to have in it? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

xxoo,

Decorchick!

  1. Can’t wait to see how this comes together – and yes, I LOVE Skinny cow :)

  2. I would love a big over stuffed chair with matching ottoman and a good lamp for reading. Also a lock on the door.

  3. I can’t wait to see where you go antiquing. I live in Pearland, and never take the time to see what neat shopping places are near by. Who is the designer you are working with?

  4. I created my Wocave this year when I created my studio. Best decision I ever made. It was one of the more expensive decisions too. HA! I love Skinny Cows. Have you tried the Skinny Cow candies? WOW!

  5. Just started working on cleaning up my old office and craft room to create my wo cave. Will be a office and studio for photography. It’s a long narrow room but has a lot of space. Right now I’m organizing it and it is a mess lol. Trying to store all my holiday decor, craft supplies and party/event business supplies. I can’t wait to see what you do:). And skinny cow has some great treats love them:).

  6. I CAN”T wait to see and hear all about your shopping trip!!! How fun :)

  7. Ohhh this is so much fun I can’t wait to see how you decorate your wocave!!! I love antiquing so wish I were going w/you! I’m in the planning stages of redoing my home office, conflicted by two very different styles LOL!

  8. I’m redoing my “Wo Cave” right now, I’ll be looking at all those ideas and things you pick up shopping.

    Hugs, Lori m

  9. No joke: My husband just ran to the store for a few things and asked if I wanted anything. He added the icecream sandwiches to his list for me (he’s there now) before even reading your post! Looking forward to hearing about your shopping trip and plans!

  10. Hmmm, let’s just start with this…I NEED a space to create a WoCave. ;) The end. Can’t wait to see what you find antiquing! SO fun!!

  11. I would love to find some really cool, vintage storage pieces for my office/studio. I’ve been using bookcase, baskets, boxes, plastic cabinets with drawers, but would really like something that holds a lot with vintage character and brings the whole room together. Right now, it definitely does not have the cool, vintage shabby look I’d like it to have. Have fun with your Skinny Cow goodies! Their products are so yummy! Hugs, Leena

  12. What Elaine said. :p)

    Once I get it cleaned out, I’d like to make a little retreat out of our guest room. It’s not going to be all that roomy, but as long as I can close the door and get away for awhile I’ll be happy!

  13. Just heard who you are shopping with. Have a great time. Red Queens Attic is my favorite antiques store in the ‘berg. Also check out Vogelsangs. I love Downtown. Have fun!

  14. I just found out you are coming the the ‘Berg to shop! Love Southern Sister Designs(My daughter loves the back room!), Red Queens attic! Hope you have fun in Rosenberg! Can’t wait to see what your WoCave looks like!

  15. Hello Decor Chick,

    Instead of working today I am creeping blogs. I love yours and I had to comment on the Wo Cave. First, Yeah for woman caves, I am so sick of hearing about man caves. My Wo Cave started about 5 years ago. I went back to school and needed a place for me. I turned our smallest bedroom into my Wo Cave. Over time I have purchased an antique desk. I bought a floor lamp at an auction that I rewired. A $5 book shelf that you could not give me a $100 for. Great books and pictures to decorate it. A fun floor rug at a yard sale. I also LOVE maps and a friend of mine is a janitor at the local grade school. They were tossing out the old school pull down maps and she called me. The United States in on one wall and the world map is on the other. Okay so the hardest part was finding the right cozy chair. I ventured into my favorite consignment shop before it closed its doors, (darn recession) and their she sat. A 1960′s orange vinyl arm chair. The arms are wide enough to hold my coffee (or wine) glass, glasses, papers, etc…. I have fun pictures on the wall…. I feel at peace in that room. Yes Wo Caves rock and so does Skinny Cow ice cream in that orange chair.

    Hi! Love your description of your WoCave! It sounds amazing! I would totally do the maps, if I had them! I guess I have a fantastic room that I could turn into a WoCave, and it’s even a good size… however, I am organizationally and decluttering-ly(?) challenged! It is FULL of piles and stacks of boxes of craft, gift-wrapping, and scrapbooking supplies… suggestions on where to start … help!
