Gender Reveal Party Ideas That Will Surprise Everyone

Gender reveal parties can make that moment even more special by getting friends and family in on the surprise in a festive setting.

There are no rules when it comes to gender reveals, so you can feel free to play around with different ways to announce the news, as well as different party games and themes. If you’re a sports fan, you can dunk, kick, or throw a ball filled with pink or blue powder to declare your baby’s sex. If you’re a Potterhead, let the infamous Sorting Hat make the big reveal. Or, if you’re not into the whole pink and blue color motif, consider a black and yellow “What Will It Bee?” theme. Even if you’re not up for throwing a party, you can still share the big news with friends and family in a fun, creative way by planning a gender reveal photoshoot.

Cute Backpack shopping is, hands down, the best part of back to school.

Your battered old bio textbook is packed with useful information (Neurons! Punnett squares! Chlorophyll!), but let’s be real here, it isn’t exactly the most stylish accessory. It’s for that reason that you absolutely need to go shopping for a cute backpack for school ASAP–well, that and the fact that your bag from last year now has duct tape where there should be canvas.

15 ZERO WASTE BATHROOM SWAPS TO MAKE THIS YEAR

Wooden toothbrush i a Cup

Eco friendly home improvements are a real win-win. Who doesn’t love saving money and the environment at the same time? 

Floss, cotton buds, makeup sponges… We create a surprising amount of waste during our self-care routines. And that’s why creating a zero waste bathroom is a great place to start on your sustainability journey.

When it comes to zero waste living, it’s best to change one area of your life at a time rather than diving all in. Start small–slow and steady wins the race.

Now, a zero waste bathroom may sound like an oxymoron. After all, it’s literally the place we go to when relieving ourselves of, well, waste.

However, the point of making zero waste bathroom swaps is to eliminate unnecessary rubbish and ensure the only waste you create is your own.

These are some of the best sustainable bathroom products to banish plastic and single-use items from your routine. Making these simple swaps will give you a beautiful eco-friendly bathroom you won’t mind showing off!

Wooden Toilet Brush and Cleaner

Zero Waste Toilet Brush + Cleaner

$11.99

Cleaning might not be the sexiest topic, but cleaning products and tools are traditionally some of the worst environmental offenders. Fortunately, that’s changing! One of the best zero waste swaps you can make for your bathroom are eco-friendly, biodegradable toilet brushes. Make sure to buy an all-natural wooden brush free of bleach and BPA. Pair that with eco-friendly bathroom cleaner and you’re good to go! You can also pick up a biodegradable toilet liner to make cleaning easier and more environmentally friendly.

Zero Waste Q-tips (a.k.a. Cotton Buds)

$12.96

There are plenty of reasons to keep your zero waste bathroom well-stocked with cotton buds–makeup corrections, first aid care, outer ear cleaning… But there’s absolutely no reason they need to be made of plastic. In fact, many countries have started banning the sale of plastic q-tips because they’re so abundant and sit in landfills for hundreds of years. Fortunately, multiple biodegradable options have entered the market. And these bamboo and organic cotton ones from Humble Co. are what I use.
Lip balm

Zero Waste Lip Balm

There are plenty of reasons to keep your zero waste bathroom well-stocked with cotton buds–makeup corrections, first aid care, outer ear cleaning… But there’s absolutely no reason they need to be made of plastic.
