Bergamot bath with wine

After a grueling trip to Costco for emergency supplies to prepare for this week’s potential power outages, I needed a relaxing soak in the bath. Bergamot-scented Epsom salts and a tiny bottle of my favorite wine elevated the experience. Today’s #OneGoodThing was a Bergamot bath with wine! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in…

A bomb bath

One of my favorite self-care rituals is a nice long soak in a hot bath with lots of Epsom. Tonight I went all out and used a lovely bath bomb with dried flowers. I lit candles, played music, and enjoyed a wee bottle of myx Peach Moscato. It was all kinds of wonderful! Today’s #OneGoodThing…

Soaking after weeding

Wild mushrooms have been surreptitiously taking over our front yard. Mama and I didn’t notice them at first because they blend in with the landscaping bark. We’ve been keeping our sweet Paisley away from the potentially dangerous fungi. This afternoon I weeded as many of the little buggers as I could manage until my back…

Wine & chocolate-fueled soak in the bathtub

More than 10 years ago, I started a personal tradition I call “Self-Care Sundays,” which helps me prepare for the week ahead. Some Sundays, Mama and I do face masks or I take a relaxing, fancy bath. Other times, I call one of my besties, organize my thoughts into lists/charts, read a book, revel in…

Lavender bomb fizzles my bath

Tonight I decompressed with a lavender scented bath and it was glorious! I used this locally made bath bomb with lavender flowers, which fizzled in my tub and left a pretty purple tint. My muscles appreciated the Epsom I added to the soak. Today’s #OneGoodThing was a lovely, relaxing bath. Day 120 of 365. And Day 851…

Fancy bath

The best part of my day was taking a fancy, lavender-scented bath filled with floating flower petals. The rose petals, cornflower petals and lavender buds in these Cetonia Bath Salts elevated my bath to something decadent. It was simply wonderful. Typically I just use epsom salts in my baths, but every once in a while I…
