In a world where everything is go go go… We have to slow it down, take a break and appoint some designated time to relax our mind and our body. For me this time is during my bubble baths ! Bubble baths are no longer an act of just cleansing, now bubble baths are a full on event of their own. Making your bubble bath special for you really boils down to what makes you feel relaxed. Some like music, mud masks, and even mediation. There are a long list of relaxing alternatives to ease your mind. Here are a few of our favorite tools to assure a nice relaxing experience.
I have my bubble baths down to a beautiful science as to what makes me want to unwind. I am a product junkie so I look for good bath products. Exfoliation, releasing muscle tension and tons of bubbles are key to creating an environment of peace. Skin care in the tub is also a great way to force your body to unwind, so start off with a face mask or a scrub before you even step your pretty little toes in the water, letting your body know it’s chill time.

“Books Are Food for your Brain”
Me before You by Jojo Moyes
A good book in the bath tub can be the difference that turns a 30 minute soak into an hours long journey. Sometime in our quest to ease our mind, the brain likes to stop and think of every single thing that you need to do. That’s why books are a great tool to relax your brain by distracting it from the inner workings of your mind. This best selling author Jojo Moyes has written quite a few books that we love. Me before You was actually created into a movie, the Beautiful Emilia Clarke plays the lead role of Lou along side sexy stud muffin Sam Claflin playing the other leading part of William. (Side Note:Movie premiers in theaters this weekend if anyone wants to go check it out)
“Tried to Think of a Cute Quote… But Bellinis tho”
Stella Rose Imperiale Prosecco $17.99
I like my drinks like I like my men… Big, Strong and full of flavor ! Finally we have made it to the booze section. Stella Rose anything is fantastic but the yummy for my tummy when making all of my bellinis is their Imperiale prosecco. To make this delicious cocktail add 5 ounces of Stella Rose Imperiale Prosecco, 2 ounces of Mango juice, Juice of 2 lime wedges, And add a cute little lime wheel for garnish. I like this tropical version of the classic bellini, it takes you away to some sort of island paradise all from the comfort of your own bathroom.
