Are you a bath or a shower person? Only one is allowed, it’s the law, like with dogs and cats. I am emphatically a bath person (and a dog person, fyi). I mean, I’ll have shower on a morning, if I have to get up and out quickly, but at all other times I like to make like a French aristocrat, or pampered lady of the manor, and wallow in the tub with low lighting, a book, music and all the fancy products I can cram in. The shower enthusiasts always say the same thing about “not wanting to wallow in their own filth” in the bath. To which I can only wonder how filthy they are? Ew.
I am not here to start a bath -v- shower war, however. We are all good friends. Another lockdown saviour for me has been the extra time available for a long soak in the bath, or indeed a long, hot, shoulder-pummelling shower, if you really must 😉
I’ve picked out a few bits to prettify your bathroom or just enhance the whole experience a little. It’s the closest any of us are getting to a spa for the foreseeable.
Much as I love a fluffy white towel, I also love a colourful one (they're a lot more forgiving and don't end up grey!). I have this leopard print hand towel in my downstairs convenience and love it. Bath towel size would only enhance the joy.
Never overlook Urban Outfitters as being a shop only for the young hipsters of this world (although they consider 90s clothing "vintage" - weep!). They have some absolute gems in the homeware section, like this adorbz little tumbler for your toothbrushes.
There are tons of cheery bathmats on the market now, they're a great way to add a bit of personality to a bathroom. Some slogan ones I like, some less so, but this one from Anthro gets my seal of approval. Again, this is something Urban Outfitters also do well, in my humblest of opinions.
I am always drawn to paper-wrapped soaps. They're nostalgic and smell lovely and the packaging is so beautiful. I don't often use soap in bar form, but it doesn't stop me buying the odd one - they look lovely displayed in a bathroom, and it's a good way to reduce plastic consumption too. Anything Liberty print gets me weak at the knees - just look at these! Homesense/TKMaxx usually have a brilliant selection too, you'll be able to literally sniff them out in store.
