the smell of my desperation has become a stench

A bathroom upgrade

I’ve recently been going through an organizing frenzy and over the weekend emptied my bathroom of two tons of hair and body products. You guys, I could have stocked an entire Bath and Body Works with the amount of lotion I had stacked in piles underneath my sink. I could have moisturized the skin of the occupancy of a football stadium. What am I doing? Why am I hoarding lotion? When the apocalypse happens and we all have to hunker down, my dry skin is going to be so grateful for this disorder.

What I did keep I stashed in pretty little jars and containers, all my q-tips, cotton balls and mouthwash. I also saw this tip on Apartment Therapy about hanging fresh sprigs of Eucalyptus from the shower head. The aroma is totally divine and makes my bathroom feel like a spa, and it’s made my daily grooming routine so much less tedious. In fact, it now feels luxurious. I gathered some little things that you can use in your bathroom to help create the same atmosphere. Note: it was very hard not to include seventeen different bottles of lotion. Behold my restraint.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
