The Relaxation Station

Relaxing - that thing I used to do properly before I became a blogger and had a million tabs opened permanently on my laptop. I was craving a boiling hot bath the other night and so I shuffled into the bathroom with a big stash of PR gifted luxuries to indulge in.
I've had this Jeanne en Provence Feu de Bois (By the Fireplace) candle* for quite a while, often having a sniff of the jar without actually making the commitment of burning it. I take it as a major sign of hoarding that I actually feel my tummy clench at the thought of a nice candle being used up...I have to admit that Dusk had a latte candle once that I loved so much that I quit burning it half way through and was content with using it as decoration so I could sniff it all the time. Am I weird, or has anyone else done this before? Anyway - this candle was lovely, very luxe and made me feel classy in the tub which is always a good thing.

The A'Kin Orange Blossom Body Wash* isn't the sweet orange that some products can be, and I think many people would prefer this bitter orange scent (if bitter is what you could call it - you know me with scents...) I thought this body wash would go well with the heavily scented Lush Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic*, which is something I have always wanted to try out for myself! Little soap stars shoot out of this once you drop it into your bath and it leaves everything a beautiful shimmery blue (but don't worry, it didn't stain the tub!)
I devoured the last of my Malteaster bunnies while reading Margaret Atwood's The Edible Woman, which I've now finished and quite enjoyed! I found the message a little hard to decipher and went looking for some in depth reviews to gauge the public opinion, but the fact that I looked forward to reading it on my lunch breaks meant it was a good 'un. You can suss out my reading style on my Goodreads profile if you like!
What are you reading right now?
Are you a fan of baths, or do you think they are too much hassle?
Are there any permanent Lush bath products I need to suss out?

  1. Great post! You're not the only one who hates the thought of using up a special candle...I'm with you! I recently finished a book called "Gone Girl".

  2. I miss having baths but I never clean it enough to use it hahaha. I'm reading the The Wrong Girl by Zoe Foster, it's pretty good!

    1. I clean mine right after I get out and then again before I jump in - but I don't find mine gets all that dirty despite all of the bath products I pile into it which really does surprise me! I adore Zoe Foster Blake, how cute is her new baby naww

  4. The Edible Woman was my first Margaret Atwood, even before Handmaid's Tale. I think it might be my favourite of hers, but Atwood makes me so bloody anxious sometimes. LUSH Golden Wonder is a good way to relax after Atwood, LOL!

    1. She is a very different writer, I was supposed to read Alias Grace in my undergrad but couldn't push myself through it. I think my mindset is in a better place to read her stuff now, I will have to give more of her books a go!
