It’s here, friends! Back-to-school season is upon us and we are ready for it! This year I have a niece who is getting ready to head off to college, and I couldn’t be more excited for her. I have the best memories from my college days and living in the dorms with friends. Going off to college, you feel so bold and confident… ready to take on the world! I wanted to do a little something to congratulate my niece and show her just how excited I am for her new adventure, so I made her a College Bathroom Tote gift with all the essentials she’ll need. 

To make the perfect college bathroom tote gift for your college student, you’ll need:

  • basket or tote
  • hand towel
  • sponge or lofa 
  • razors
  • toothbrush with holder and toothpaste
  • shampoo/conditioner
  • body wash
  • ribbon

Now all you have to do is put everything into the tote or basket. Make sure you make it look pretty!

Can’t go into college with bad breath! I love LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE because it has 6 benefits in one, including helping prevent cavities, killing bad breath germs, cleaning your whole mouth, freshening breath, etc. Plus it’s from the #1 Dentist Recommended Mouthwash Brand!

Once everything is inside of your tote, tie a cute ribbon around it to finish it off.

I also love LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE ZERO ALCOHOL because the zero-alcohol formula cleans deep to kill millions of bad breath germs for a healthier mouth, with a milder taste. So if you aren’t a fan of a strong minty flavor, this is the mouthwash for you.

Right now if you buy 3, you get a $5 Target Gift Card! The offer is good (6/29-9/9) and is valid online and in store. Who doesn’t want a $5 gift card to Target?! You can even put that into your College Bathroom Tote gift! To make it even easier, you can hover over the image below to shop!

This gift tote is so simple to make, and I just know your college student will be grateful for a gift that they will actually put to use on a regular basis! Help prepare your college student to Go Bold with LISTERINE®! 

DIY Master Bathroom Update

Good morning, makers! I hope you had a great weekend. I’m excited to start off this week with my DIY Master Bathroom Update. It has been a long time coming… like almost 6 years… but we finally finished it!

Let me show you some of the before and demo pictures…

We took out the old tile floor and installed slate flooring (Floor and Decor). We painted the walls grey (Behr paint) and the ceiling white and installed cute His and Hers towel hooks (Hobby Lobby). We installed new baseboards and painted those white as well. We spray painted the original light fixture to hide the chrome and gold finishing on it (Rustoleum). We also installed a rustic fence slat wall behind the toilet…and it’s my favorite part of the whole update (tutorial coming soon). I bought new grey towels and a plain white shower curtain (Walmart). I painted a trio of jars with Chalky Finish paint (DecoArt) to hold our Q-tips, cotton balls, and toothbrushes.

Don’t you just love it?? I sure do. The things we did to update our bathroom weren’t drastic… they were relatively simple DIY updates that brightened the bathroom and made it more eye appealing. The whole update cost us less than $175. It’s beyond me why the master bedroom and bathroom are always the last rooms to update, but I am so glad they are done!
