If you are a busy gal like me, you many not pay too much attention to your bathroom necessities. It is even worse when you have growing children and you work outside of the home. You may be living in a crazy household filled with chores and have no time for yourself. I feel you! We all know that everyone’s day begins in the bathroom – at least for the most part. So here are several items that you should have in your bathroom, if you are a busy diva like me. It will make your day-to-day life a little easier. Trust me!

Bath Gel

You gotta have bath gel when taking your showers. It is quicker and easy. You don’t have to spend so much time trying to work up lather with the regular bar of soap.  Shower gels are your best friend. Once you put some on your wash rag and turn on the shower, you will be bathing in silky and soothing lather. It also carries a calming effect. Try it, if you haven’t already done so.

Moisturizing Lotion

Every woman’s skin needs moisture – both your face and your body. When you are busy, this can fall through the cracks. However, don’t let that happen to you. Hydration is great for the skin. Don’t run out of body lotion or face moisturizers – not unless you want to remain a diva!

Hair Brush

When you are having a bad hair day, a comb will only make matters worse. Choose a hair brush instead. It puts the unruly hair back into place. Your hairstyle will be easier to fix and it will save you a lot of time too. Brush the hair and secure it with a rubber band and some hair moisturizer and you are good to go!

Cleansing Wipes

OMG! Cleansing wipes are more than your best friend. They are your saving grace! They are excellent for removing makeup when you are ripping and running. When you come home tired and too beat to wash your face, grab your cleansing wipes, use them and then go to bed.


Ladies, although, you brush your teeth on a regular basis, you may find yourself in a situation when you don’t have time to do so. Mouthwash will do the trick. A few gargles and you can be out the door with a fresh smelling mouth for that meeting or interview. Bring along toothbrush and toothpaste in your purse and brush when you have some free time during the day.

Lip Balm

If you don’t have lip balm in your purse, your office drawer or bedside table, you got to have it. Your lips need as much moisture as your face and skin does. Don’t try to avoid this. You will regret it.
