1.  Amazon Echo.

Yeah, I know this made my kitchen list but guess what? It’s just as awesome in the bathroom! News headlines, streaming music, NPR, weather forecast – even the timer comes in handy once in a while. These days I am all about some shower singing to The Beatles.

2.  Extra fluffy bath mats.

So technically I didn’t buy mats labelled extra fluffy but dang, these things have some pile to ’em, and there’s something delightful about digging my toes in there after a shower.

3.  Schick Intuition Moisturizing Razor.

I was out tooling around in the blogs one day and came across a recommendation for this ridiculous looking razor. It’s huge – huger than huge! – but I’ll field comments on my weird razor all day long to avoid those bumps in my pits.

4.  A tall chair.

You know what makes it 1000% more likely that I’ll fix my makeup or hair? Having a place to sit down while I do it. BOOM.

5.  Double-sided makeup mirror for people who wear bifocals.

The struggle is real, folks. Liquid eyeliner is cool but I can’t see my lash line. Tweezers are my friend but I can’t spot those pesky stray eyebrow hairs. I’m not blind when I take my glasses off but I am at a significant disadvantage. Enter the makeup mirror with an 8x magnification side – hallelujah!

6.  Our shower.

Many of you endured bathroom remodel updates like this one but now that it’s done I can say the bathroom is one of my favorite places in our house. The shower leads the charge on this. It’s (ahem) spacious, which is heavenly for a girl who’s always struggled with tight spaces.

7.  Our shower, part 2.

You wouldn’t think shower doors matter…but you’d be wrong. We had ours put in without an edge so they can open in or out and it’s the bomb. Pulling a door inward after a shower prevents water from dripping all over that cushy mat.

8.  Kiss My Face Moisture Shave Pomegranate Grapefruit Shaving Cream.

Oh my gosh, you guys, I love this shaving cream. It smells delightful which is always a bonus, and it lasts for-e-ver. Plus when you think it’s time to pitch it in the recycling bin just add a little water and bam! you’re back in business. So awesome.

9.  Physician’s Formula Butter Highlighter in Pearl

Seriously girly moment here, but I’m super happy now that I’ve mastered highlighter. It sounded all gimmicky to me – swipe a bit of highlighter on the top of your cheekbone AND YOU WILL INSTANTLY LOOK 20 YEARS YOUNGER – but the power is real. And not only is this one creamy so it glides right on, it has a nice coconut-y smell to boot.

10.  USB port in the outlet.

Easily one of the coolest suggestions our contractor gave us.
