I’m not sure what it says about me that in my new house, I’ve managed to only pull together my office (check out that post here) and now my bathroom. Still living with minimal furniture in all the other rooms! #nojudgement
I’m really excited about how the bathroom has turned out. I mean, it was pretty spectacular before I moved in. True story … after I signed the papers and got the keys, I promptly drove myself over to the house with a towel and soap to take a shower.
But after several trips to IKEA to find a desk and shelves for the office, I was ready to stay local for the few things I needed to update the bathroom.
Since the tub is the focal point of the room, I worked to get a few accessories to make it even more special. Love this column I found at a local antiques store.
Maybe it’s not a big surprise, but I can’t sit still for very long. I got this tub caddy with the book/iPad stand so I my tub time lasts longer than an exhale of boredom.
On a trip to Whole Foods, I found a few great beauty finds to maximize my tub experience.
Dr. Bronner’s Shaving Gel, Lavender—The smell! Sometimes in the winter, my skin gets really dry, so this shaving gel was great to moisturize and condition too. But, I can’t get enough of the amazingly strong lavender smell. Would it be wrong to just flip the cap and catch a whiff every now and then?
Nugg Charcoal Skin Detox Face Mask—This mask was great for clearing up some blackheads that were forming on my T-Zone. Sorry … too gross? After rinsing, my skin felt smooth and clean.
Everyone Geranium and Sweet Orange Bubble Bath—I only care about two qualities in bubble bath … lots of foamy bubbles and a nice pleasant smell. This great choice from Everyone checks both of those boxes.
Check out my favorite beauty products from Trader Joe’s here in a previous post.
I’m most excited about this print I found at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem. The artist, Emily Drew Mash (check out her website here), had an exhibition and I just couldn’t get this piece out of my head. I love that I got to support a local artist, have something I enjoy and is unique.
What do you think? Recovery time from working out and working hard is important. I’m always happy to come home to this bathroom retreat. I just have to watch Harper, because she’s always looking to jump in the tub before I can!
Harper literally jumps in and swims!
