Happiness is…

…a warm, relaxing bath. Especially if the water is golden.

Say what? How’d I manage to take a bath in golden water? Heh. Well, sit back for a review of my new favorite place to get bath products, y’all. It’s all at Lush.

First, the disclaimer: These good folks aren’t giving me anything to sing their praises. But since Christmas is practically upon us, and we have to travel to the relatives’ houses (which is the last thing some folks want to do. I know, I know.), I’m all about treating yourself to a great gift to de-stress before and after the encounter.

Now, awhile back, I bought myself some treats at Lush as part of my graduation gift to myself. I tucked them in my toiletry drawer, and well, kinda forgot about them. As I was on my cleaning and decorating spree, I found them, still festively wrapped in their cellophane baggies (and colorful curly ribbon) waiting for me to use. And I thought..shucks. Why not?

So, I grabbed my little baggies and went to take a bath in Mom’s wonderful (huge!) tub.  avobath.jpg Yeah. This lovely sparkly green thing is the Avobath bath bomb. I only used half (cause I wanted to conserve) and it still filled the tub with this pretty green hue. As it’s name implies, there’s avocado oil in it, and it’s scented with bergamot and lemongrass. Very light and clean.

But that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted bubbles. Good thing I had a bubble bath bar. What’s that? Well, it’s bubble bath…in a bar form (heh. simple, ain’t it? :lol:)

 You just crumble bits underneath the running water for all the bubbles you can stand. I only needed about a fourth of my bubble bath bar.

I got this one here: sunnyside.jpg 

Oh, yeah. That golden circle of happiness is the Sunny Side bubble bar. The best thing about it? It leaves wonderous golden swirls in the water. Once your bubbles die down, you can see the swirls as you run your fingers in the water. If the citrus smell doesn’t relax you, the swirls will. The glitter doesn’t stick to you, by the way, so you don’t have to worry about looking like one of your Christmas ornaments. Which is great, because once you get done soaking in the pretty green-gold flecked water, you’re gonna be soft as one of those cuddly teddy bears in the stores. And uber-relaxed, too.

There are many other bath bombs and bubble bars for you to experiment with. When Santa brings me the money I so nicely asked him for, (once I pay bills) I’m gonna go back to Lush and see what else I can find.

So, I take this time to remind all of you (as I reminded myself, in the most round-about way imaginable) to treat yourselves this holiday season. Take time out to relax, especially if you’re gonna have to deal with difficult family members.

All right. Now that I’m done relaxing, I’m gonna get back to my cookie baking (cause happiness is also a warm cookie, dont’cha know.) Happy shopping and Happy Holidays, y’all!

    Ooh, gold bar! That is uber exciting. Now let me ask you, is this actually a store somewhere or can you just get everything online?

    I don’t think I’ve heard of it around here.
    Bravo for bubble crumbs! 😉

    It is an actual store, and you can get the majority of the stuff online. The exception:the face masks. They make them right there, and they refrigerate them in the store. The Cupcake mask smells like chocolate pudding!

    Go here: http://usa.lush.com/cgi-bin/lushdb/stores.html?mv_arg=USA&expand=stores to see if there’s a location near you!

    There is no location nearby, but there will be soon @ the Casino which I go hang out more often than not.

    Thanks for the links!
    I’m loving the look of the bath bombs!
