Bathroom Tour & Organization

I love this cabinet, it is very compact but is great for storing makeup, extra shampoo etc. 

I love mason jars and they are so practical for basically anything. I added some cute green ribbon to them and then put in floss, cotton pad things for removing nail polish and Q-tips. Everything is readily accessible and looks so much nicer than the ugly plastic bags that they come in. 

Here is just a preview of what I keep in the drawers. This one holds my favorite nail polishes and some extra makeup bags. 

On the top shelf I keep my makeup brushes in a nantucket basket, some lotion, nail polish remover, my glasses and extra contact solution. 

On the shelf above my sink I just have face cream, some more nail polish and toothbrushes. 

Also above the sink is contact stuff, makeup remover and some makeup. I am really not a huge makeup person and pretty much just wear mascara, chapstick and concealer. 

I always keep a headband by the sink for when I wash my face or do my makeup. 

In my shower I have a little organizer that hangs from the shower head. I use Pantene shampoo and conditioner. If you are looking for a good body wash get the Aveeno white peach and ginger, it smells amazing! 

I love the fixtures in the shower. The faucet was original and there was no way I was going yo get rid of it! 

We have matching Claire Murray fish rugs at both ends of the bathroom. I also have a full length mirror on one of the doors... definitely not an insta worthy OOTD #behindtheblog

This past summer my sister and I redid our bathroom. My house is a very old cape and my parents wanted to keep the preexisting structure and not gut the entire thing. We both knew that we wanted something fun, bright and colorful but not too crazy that I would not go with the rest of the house. Originally, the bathroom only had a tub, so we tiled up the walls in white subway tiles and added a shower. We kept the sink the same and had a new sink skirt made. We purchased a Lilly Pulitzer shower curtain and took it to a local seamstress and had her make it into the sink skirt. The shower curtain is probably not everyone's style, but I love the bright monogram against the white. We got a new toilet (super exciting I know) and the new cabinet thing. By adding a few simple changes, we were able to achieve the perfect little bathroom! Have you redone your bathroom recently? Let me know if you liked this kind of post, as I would be up to do others!

  5. Oh my gosh, this is so cute! The Claire Murray fish rugs are a must have, for I own a couple myself as well! I love, love, love your shower head and faucet as well, so unique. I really admire your organizational skills with all of your beauty products as well. So colorful, but so well put together and arranged.
