Hotelifying Your Bathroom- 06.05.12
One of my favorite things about traveling has always been hotel bathrooms and amenities. With such variety in bathroom fixtures and shower designs it always feels like shopping and testing bathroom layouts and details for my future home design… and the same goes for amenities! You get the chance to test so many different scents and brands and products as you bounce from hotel to hotel.
So while surprise toiletries are often a hotel luxury, when doing a vacation rental, there’s no reason to forego the playful newness and experimentation of toiletries! So instead of packing your usuals and making mini bottles of everything currently in your bathroom, why not have a little fun and grab a set from an awesome brand you’ve been curious about? On the next page i’ve rounded up some favorites, some i’m curious about, and an awesome site that’s bound to have something you’ve yet to try!

This site is amazing! 3floz.com - it’s exactly as it sounds, named after the TSA liquid travel size limit of 3 fl oz containers… lots of travel sized toiletries ready to go ~ and some really fun SETS! They have them based on themes (body, face, hear, shave, etc), but more interestingly they have had various companies/web folks create their own kits from Perez Hilton to Seventeen Magazine… Cool Mom Picks to the Jet Set Girls!
