I’ve had a few different set ups on my bathroom vanity over the years. The longest running one was having nothing at all and keeping all of my makeup and “everyday use” products under my sink and simply pulling them out to use every morning.
But here’s the thing: I never put them away.
My makeup bag sat in disarray, usually opened up with the contents spilling out, on my counter for the rest of the day. And I hated that. It felt like my bathroom was a mess every single day.
I was browsing through the pretty vanities on a POND’S pinboard and was inspired to spruce things up around my bathroom. Recently POND’S partnered with Jonathan Adler to design colorful and reusable containers for the Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes. I loved the blue one because it went perfectly in my already blue bathroom!
While my mom was visiting in February and March, she helped me think through a creative set up for my bathroom vanity that is both pretty and functional. I knew I wanted my makeup to be visible while also staying organized.
I found the vanity organizers at Target, as well as the delicate floral decor sitting on top of the crate. Initally, I wanted to hang two shelves on the wall right next to my sink, but we thought it may be a little too intrusive.
So we thought creatively about how to organize and freshen up the space without taking over the entire vanity. And the idea of using a crate, on it’s side, was born.
It didn’t take long to search for and find a crate at HomeGoods. And after I had sifted through my makeup bag and picked out the most frequently used products, I put them in their new home and stepped back to admire how much more simple my beauty routine had just gotten.
No more digging around my bag to find the product I’m looking for.
I use, and have used for over 15 years, POND’S Original Fresh Wet Cleaning Towlettes to remove my makeup in the evening. I’ve tried other wipes, but they made my face break out and feel overly dry. POND’S has been around for over 150 years, so it’s clear to me that they know what their doing when it comes to skincare.
You can find this blue container at Walgreens in April, and the green one is exclusively at Target.
Now that I’ve lived with this vanity set up for a few weeks, I can assure you this is how it will stay for a good long while. I love the ease of being able to see my makeup in order to make the “getting ready” process quicker.
I also love that it acts a bit as a centerpiece as well, and adds a really nice finishing touch to the decor in our bathroom.
**I’m excited to be partnering with POND’S, a brand I’ve been using since middle school, on a handful of posts over the next year or so. POND’S products pictured within this post were gifted.
