Rest and Relaxation at Home
Ever have those really long stressful days and just need a place to go and relax and forget the world and its problems. Well many of us don't have the luxury of going to spa, so why not turn our homes into a mini version of spa. After all summer is about rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. Bubble baths, candles and nice shower could have you feeling better in no time. There are so many different bath products out that you might not not know what to get so you may resort to your inner child and get Mr.Bubbles (not that there is anything wrong with Mr. Bubbles but we are "grown ups" now), when there are so many good bathing and showering products for us big kids. I did a little research and asked so of my friends what products they are into when it comes to bath time fun, shower gels and candles, and came up with a few good ones. I'm actually excited to get my hands on some of these on my next trip to the mall! Let me know what you guys are using and if you love these products to! xoxo
When looking for products for a bath I wanted to see what else besides bubble bath I could find. While shopping in the mall I came across this store called LUSH Cosmetics. Everything in LUSH is handmade and needless to say I fell in love instantly. For your bath time relaxation I came across bath bombs and bath melts. You can find these products at LUSH stores and also on their website.
