simple is beautiful

Pamper Yourself

Tuesday, January 14, 2014


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.

  3. Ballet Slippers is one of my all time favorites too. I've been trying to take some time for myself just by painting my nails or getting a manicure. In fact I've changed my polish twic this week - that is a new record ;)

  4. I try to treat myself to a nice long bath at least once a week. It is heavenly! Yes on dimming the lights and candles and of course some nice soft music. Ballet Slipper is such a pretty color. I forgot I had that one. Those striped pjs look so cozy.
