Shower Caddy essentials for college

shower caddy essentials

Mesh Shower Caddy: Shower caddys coming in all shapes and sizes but, please, take my advice on this one…get a plastic version that has HOLES for drainage.  There’s nothing more disgusting than seeing mold at the bottom of your caddy, which WILL happen if you don’t get one with proper filtration.

Body Pouf: A classic.  You might want to buy a few at a time since you do need to replace these every few months.

Drybar The Morning After Shower Cap: For the non-hair-washing days, a good shower cap is a MUST.

Gillette Venus Breeze Razor: I’ve been a loyal Gillette Venus user since high school so why mess with perfection?

Revlon Pumice Stone: I’ve tried lots of foot scrubbing tools and this is honestly one of the best.  You want to keep your feet freshly scrubbed while running around campus.

Orlando Pita Argan Haircare Collection: Guys, this trio is only $25!  I mean, that’s a serious steal.  You get a shampoo, conditioner and a hair treatment oil, all formulated by the fab Orlando Pita.  If this existed while I was actually in college, I would be obsessed.

Yes to Blueberries Ultra Hydrating Body Wash: You need a hydrating body wash since dorm rooms are infamous for dry, stale air.

Skintimate Shave Gel in “Raspberry Rain”: I’ve always loved the scent of berries and this shaving gel is really moisturizing and easy to use in a small space (e.g. dorm shower stall).

Kiehl’s Washable Cleansing Milk: Truth be told, I didn’t even wash my face unti after college (my skin was THAT perfect), but I’m a big believer of splurging in a quality cleanser, which this one is.

Havaianas Flip Flops: You MUST protect your feet.  This is non-negotiable.

Three Questions With Chrissy Teigen


Chrissy Teigen is one of those people you truly want to be best friends with…or at least, I do.  If you’re not already following her on Twitter, you should be, cause let me tell you- she is hilarious.  And with that said, it was no surprise that we had literally the funniest interview ever and it was truly hard narrowing it down to only three questions!

Q: What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

A: Don’t be so worried…at 22 I felt so lost. What am I gonna do with my career? Am I gonna have a career? I never just stopped and took the moments in, so I would tell myself not to be so worried.

Q: What made you decide to partner with Gillette Venus?

A: They’re just such a wonderful company; honestly, it’s great to see a company being so interactive with women. I’m a girl’s girl.  It’s cool to be with a brand that really appreciates and empowers women- I love it.  We’ve partnered up with Step Up Women’s Network and we’ve done this thing called “Step Up and Step Out” and for every step taken on our blue carpet, Gillette Venus donated $1 to Step Up Women’s Network.  It’s great seeing how quickly something good can be done, via social media, with just a hash tag (#StepUp).

Q: Speaking of social media (Chrissy’s tweets are infamous), what was the one tweet that everyone just freaked out over?

A: Oh, so many come to mind. I’ll say anything tweeting from award shows…some people have some hard-core fans.  So never upset…the fans. (lots of laughter after this) To note, Chrissy is a self-proclaimed member of “the bey-hive,” which is apparently Beyonce fans.

Chrissy’s favorite products:

1. Venus and Olay Razor: “It smells like crème brule!”

2. Tatcha Original Aburatorigami face blotting papers: The model uses these when it’s hot and humid in New York City and mentioned that they have gold flakes in them.

3. Batiste Dry Shampoo: Chrissy picks up this brand of dry shampoo at Ricky’s!
