Bathroom Beauty

by Shae

Bathrooms are often a place associated with things not so pleasant - thanks to public bathrooms and college. But after ordering this pretty floral robe, I figured I had to share some of my favorite products, décor pieces, and bathroom necessities to help us all erase those unpleasant memories and make it a space we actually enjoy. 

Pretty Plum Sugar Feminine Floral Robe (suggested by Jacey from Damsel in Dior)

Make-up brushes assorted in sprinkle-filled mason jars. (The sprinkles need to be changed every so often, as the color bleeds when wet.)

Sleek vase, colorful flowers, and an all-white almond and coconut candle.

My favorite products: Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo, Conditioner, and Spray (this is a lifesavor for someone like me with ultra thin hair), Moroccan Oil Hair Spray (smells amazing), MAC SPF 15 Daily Moisturizer (I bought this for my trip and I haven’t looked back), Dermalogica Face Wash and Daily Microfoliant (the best, my absolute fav), Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum Miracle Filler For Blondes (when you’ve been dying your hair since you were 12, things like this are necessary), Dr. Gross Extra Strength Alpha-Beta Peel (clears & brightens, great for after a long weekend or when you feel a breakout in the works), Eucerin Moisturizing Oil (use it in the shower for ultra-smooth skin), Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo (In a rush for work? This is super easy to use, and a roommate favorite!) Goody Hair Pins as seen here.  

Verge Curling Iron (pic here) –love the imperfect curl and beachy wave combo it creates.

Still on the hunt for a great perfume – taking suggestions in the comment section below. Thanks!

Hi Shae, Have you ever thought about doing a tutorial on how you style your hair? For those of us with thin hair as well, it would be great to see how you make your curls/waves look like so much volume. Love your blog!
