On My 12th Day of Christmas Baths

Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone has been able to enjoy time with their family, eat some good food and open a present or two.

I have had a wonderful day with my family.  I am so thankful to have 2 of the most thoughtful kids in the world and a loving supportive husband, not to mention my sweet little kitty and 2 dogs.  This girl has everything!

After a day of snacking, opening presents and talking to family, I finally made my way upstairs for my last day of Christmas baths.

I made a big cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, chocolate shavings, and a candy cane stirrer.  Isn’t this cup adorable? Thanks to my friend, Betsy, for such a sweet gift.

I took my new bluetooth shower speaker and turned on some music. This was a gift from my husband, somehow he knew I like listening to music while in the tub.

Finally, after my steaming hot water finished running, I tossed this Sakura bath bomb into the tub.  Yet another simple, yet sweet concoction from Lush.

I had the best Christmas a girl could ask for, not because I received this awesome Wonderwoman purse, but because I spent the whole day with my family.  I am truly blessed.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

On My 9th Day of Christmas Baths

image

I finally have all of my presents wrapped and tucked safely under my tree.  This seems like a big accomplishment, but considering Christmas is about 2 1/2 days away, I am finished just in the St. Nick of time. 

This time of year, every year, I feel like I should get “this” person just one more gift.  That leads me to think of “this person” also.  Then I realize it is enough. Whatever it is, it is enough. 

So tonight, I am going to enjoy my cup of coffee with International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie creamer.  I am going to watch my Father Christmas Lush bath bomb fizz across my tub, and I will sleep comfortable in my bed with visions of sugar plums (or cookies) dancing in my head.

Goodnight,

The 1st Day of Christmas Bath


 

Green Peppermint

On the first day of Christmas I used a lovely green bath bomb.

Hello all!  In honor of the Christmas season and my love of the 12 Days of Christmas song I am going to attempt to take a holiday bath of sorts for the next 12 days.  Yes, that is correct there are only 12 days until Christmas.  Don’t freak out, just take a bath and try not to think about all of the presents you have left to buy.

Tonight I used a bath bomb that I purchased from The Bomb Dot Com Bath Bombs.  It was called Green Peppermint, and it was BIG. This baby fizzed like a pro and practically made laps around my tub.  It was a lovely way to start my 12 days of Christmas baths.

I know you are anxious to see what is in store for tomorrow, so come back to my blog and see what happens on my 2nd day of Christmas bath.

How to Pumpkin Spice-Up Your Bath

Pumpkin spice bath

This is a tribute to all of the pumpkin spice fans out there.  Don’t tell me you haven’t held that white cup up to your lips this week as you scan your favorite blogs, sipping that oh so popular pumpkin spice latte.  Whether you are a hipster, a preppy white girl, a lover of autumn or you just happen to love pumpkin, do I have a treat for you!

My choice of treat started with a mini pumpkin spice cake.  I would like to claim that I baked these precious cakes myself, but I am a horrible liar so you can believe it only if you want to.

Pumpkin spice cake

If you really want to pumpkin spice-up your bath, you have to enjoy pumpkin as many ways as you can, with all your senses.  You can make a pumpkin roll, eat a slice of pumpkin pie or eat a pumpkin snack cake. ….or you can skip this step and head right to the drink.

I’ve finished my lil cake so I better make my drink now before I eat another scrumptious mini pumpkin spice cake…or two.

It’s drink time! This time I will give you 2 choices: pumpkin spice coffee or Pumpkin Spice White Russian Cocktail.

If you don’t drink alcohol or you have to get out tonight to pick up the kids, I suggest you try the coffee. If you are staying in for the night and aren’t already a complete drunk, I suggest trying the alcohol version. Either way, I have found the simplest recipe for each, being I am tired and am ready for a stiff drink…soon…..actually right NOW.

If you don’t drink either coffee or alcohol….well I feel sorry for you. Really I do.

Just joking. You can try a pumpkin milkshake, pumpkin spice tea or a pumpkin-infused water. I may have just made that water thing up, really I don’t know what it is. You will have to look these recipes up yourself; I am way too busy to do it for you.

Either I just got funny or I just started on the Kahlua without you.

The pumpkin spice coffee is Uber simple. I made a strong cup of coffee with my Keurig (my daughter bought me for Christmas XOXOX). I added refrigerated pumpkin spice coffee creamer. I like my coffee cooled down a bit.

I added whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg on top. A cinnamon stick to stir with and Voila a pumpkin spice coffee.

Now to the good drink.

This is a Pumpkin Spice White Russian Cocktail. I found the recipe here. The Weary Chef

Add 1 oz EACH of vodka, Kahlua and pumpkin spice coffee creamer to a glass of ice. Stir. Add whipped cream, a dash of nutmeg and a cinnamon stick to feel a little hipsterish.

Drink ’em up. Now make another….dang I’m bossy today. Or am I just pumpkin spiced?

Time to head for the bath. I bought this heavenly white pumpkin scented candle. You can’t go wrong with bringing pumpkins, jack o lanterns and candles to your bathroom. Tis the pumpkin season anyway.

Pumpkins and candles

I started my bath with my huge Pumpkin Bumpkin bath bomb from St. Somewhere Spa. My water turned a perfect orange color and it smelled…well..like pumpkins. Perfection.

Then it got interesting. I brought out my Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar from LUSH. It had a glittery shell with a fleshy pumpkin inside. Don’t be alarmed, it all dissolved quickly.

Sipping on my Pumpkin Spice White Russian in my orange pumpkin spiced water, I looked over and saw the last key element for a spectacular pumpkin spiced bath. A black cat staring at me.

Enjoy your bath and the final days of pumpkin spice season!
