Suds up! I count soap among my many obsessions. There are 3 simple criteria to make me buy a bar: smell,size and color. When I am nearing completion of a bathroom project, one of my very favorite things to consider are the soaps and containers. I look for items that will not only suit the space, but the clients will really enjoy. But, even at home I like it to feel decorative.
If you are a regular reader of Tuesday Tips you have likely taken notice that I have issues with packaging. I often shop the big box stores, the very same ones many of you do your shopping. However, when I get home I can't just put my purchases away. I require them to strip! As in rid themselves of the hideous attire your favorite brand is sporting! I toss everything possible into the recycle bin and trash the rest. I do this for two simple reasons, beauty and convenience. I talked about yesterday. LBE! And, if I don't have time, I get my kids to do it. They never complain...they know there are far worse chores I could assign!
Here is a look into the the top drawer of the vanity in the bathroom my kids share:
Ahh...so much better. Beautiful and convenient. The pretty green soap on top smells divine and is mine! No sharing...just wanted a super pretty picture. And, given the crazy amount of bars teenagers go through, Dove is quite fine for them!!! The wood bowl is perfect for the shallow drawer. Or, if you love a long soak, try a pile of soaps in your favorite basket next to the tub as shown in the top photo. Now the words "beauty bar" make sense wouldn't you agree?
