Few things are as luxurious as taking a nice long bath - especially in the winter. Carving out a little time for yourself can make all the difference in how you feel and you never know; your family might thank you. You come out feeling fresh, pampered, and relaxed. Know what I mean? You can keep the process as simple as you wish, but I have a few things that make the bath experience even better.
Relaxing music The Beats Pill is an amazing little invention! Connects wirelessly to your i-phone. Our boys both received one for Christmas and I'm amazed by the sound quality. Comfy slippers for after the bath - I do not have the Tory Burch slippers, but Mom does. And I can assure you that are worth every penny. Scrub - The Laura Mercer scrub is a favorite of mine. It has a nice scent and leaves my skin feeling so soft! Bubbles - I'm a big fan of the Philosphy line. Just pour a small amount into the bath for bubbles that leave your skin feeling and smelling nice. Hand cream - Frequent washing and winter conditions leave my hands feeling and looking rough! L'Occitane Shea Butter hand cream is one of the only hand creams that works for me. Wine - Maybe wine ins't your thing, but whatever you enjoy, why not serve it up in a pretty glass? Polish - Now that the sparkle and color of the holidays is behind us, I'm rediscovering my old favorites. Essie Ballet Slipper is definitely one of them. Soft jammies - I'm all about soft sleepwear and these are perfect! Candle - No bath relaxing bath is complete without dimming the lights and lighting a candle. A friend gave me a diptyque years ago and I've been hooked ever since. They are pricey, but worth every penny.
