Betsey Styled Mini Bathroom Makeover

There’s something nostalgic about Betsey Johnson to me. You see, almost 10 years ago, a girl was having a horrible time finding a prom dress. All the dresses she saw were too long, too sparkly, had too many sequins, or showed off too much of her “assets,” if you get my drift. And if you haven’t figured it out by now, that girl was me.

Finally, after many failed attempts at dress shopping, I stumbled into the Betsey Johnson store in Downtown Seattle, picked up two dresses, tried them on, and I fell in love with one of them. The only problem? The one I fell for was $450. Wayyy more than my Mom wanted to spend. But a few promises to work off my overspending and a lot of groveling later, it was on, and I had my dress.

I was reminded of my love for Betsey Johnson when I saw the new KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs (74ct.) and KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Wallet 3 Packs in my local QFC. Yes, I’m talking about tissue. But sometimes it’s about the simple things in life, like a dressed up tissue box. I know it sounds a little silly, but it was just the pop of fun decor I needed in our bathroom. The bright colors, silly kissy lips, and pretty flowers updated mini “vanity”. One of the downsides of condo life for me is having one sink and a vanity I have to share, so I make it work by using my jewelry box as a stand for my makeup mirror.

I’ve lamented about the lack of space in our condo before. Our bathroom happens to be one area where I wish I had more space. I may or may not be a slight makeup hoarder, and it’s hard to be able to display my collection let alone have enough space to have a full vanity to myself.

When I saw the KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs, I knew this would be the perfect way to “dress” up my vanity. (Get it? ;) )The pop of color adds something special and sentimental to my updated mini “vanity”. Using my jewelry box as my vanity “stand” I added this new makeup mirror, and I added a couple of these dishes to hold small odds and ends. Right now, I’m using them for lipsticks, but I plan on storing rings and bobby pins in them too. The nice thing about this “stand” set up is I can take it with me when I film makeup videos and it can transport to any table in our house.

      Oh no kidding, the worst is using toilet paper while you’re sick – I always end up with a cracked, dry nose!

    Those tissue boxes are so cute. I love Betsey Johnson as well and have a purse by Betsey Johnson that I’ve been using and getting so many comments on as well. I will have to pick up some of these tissue boxes.

      Haha I know right! My mom probably still has that camera, I’m sure it has a roll of film in it with some other (embarrassing) high school photos. :P

      Haha, yes the Kleenex is definitely more reasonable! A box is less than $2, and agreed on the fun style – I just love her prints and colors! :)
