Bath Bombs

I have professed my undying love for bath bombs many times. I will never get tired of running a hot bath, putting on some music, pouring a glass of wine, and then dropping in a bomb of amazingness!

I was able to get to test out some new bath bombs recently. You can find them on Amazon HERE.

First off, the package is ADORABLE! It reminds me of the beach. It’s so bright and cheery. And the inside of the package doesn’t disappoint either. The bombs are nicely packaged in shredded paper, keeping them safe and keeping them attractive.

I love the scents. There are six different scents to try. Revitalize (lavender), Strawberry, Cotton Candy, Warm Vanilla, Mellow Amber (geranium and sandalwood), and Rose.

All of the scents are strong enough to hold up well during a bath, but not overwhelming or too strong.

My favorites are the rose and cotton candy. Cotton Candy is one of my favorite smells of all time, and I haven’t had it in a bath bomb yet. It was super fun!

My boyfriend and are are saving at least two bath bombs for our vacation at the end of August. We’ll have a room with a large whirlpool tub for us to enjoy, so we’re going to have a nice romantic scented bath.

Slimup Shaker bottle

Weight loss journey…. I feel like I’m always on a weight loss journey. And one of the things that helps me along the way are protein shakes. I love being able to mix and match protein shakes for my needs for the day. And since both my boyfriend and I mix shakes in the morning we dirty a lot of bottles.

What I really love about this blender bottle is how feminine it is. Check it out on their Amazon listing HERE. This means that my boyfriend will NEVER steal my blender bottle again! It’s a super cute blue color with nice font on it.

The wire whisk in the bottle does a good job of mixing up the protein powder in the liquid. I don’t have clumps in my shake as the whisk does a good job of breaking up the powder and evenly dissolving it.

This is a great little bottle for me to have my morning protein shake in!

Replacement Brush Heads

I have an Oral B electric toothbrush. I like it because it is a more economical option for electric brushes. But even so, sometimes the brush heads can get expensive when I buy them from the stores in town.

I was super excited to find this set on Amazon HERE

The price on these are amazing. Only $7 for 4 brush heads. Since my boyfriend and I both use the same type of electric toothbrush they will fit both of our brushes. And we change the heads on them every other month, so this will last us 4 months. What a value!


The bristles are soft enough to feel nice against my gums, but stiff enough to nicely clean my teeth. The heads did indeed fit my oral B brush perfectly!

Very pleased with these brush heads!

Stanton Hotel Quality Curtains

My bedroom is my own little sanctuary. I love going up to my bedroom each night and just winding down and relaxing.  There are many things in my room that help me relax. And it sounds funny, but one of my most important relaxation pieces in my room are my curtains. I can not sleep if there is any light in my room. I need as close to black out as I can get. Other wise it will just wake me right up. So I’m always on the lookout for curtains that block the light. But usually that’s led me to purchase really dark and somewhat ugly curtains.

I was so excited to get to dry these out. You can find the curtains on their Amazon listing HERE


Right off the bat I was impressed with how thick these curtains are. They are very sturdy and feel pretty luxurious. The light beige color with the gold swirls add such a lovely touch to my room and matches things pretty well.

These do a pretty good job of blocking out the light, but as I expected since they are a lighter color, they are not true blackout curtains. I solved this by placing some darker curtains behind them. This allows me to get the black out light blocking that I desire and still keep the curtains visible  where they are really beautiful.

Overall I really like these and what they add to my room. I’m looking forward to many nights of restful sleep with these curtains helping me! šŸ™‚

Abask Bath Bombs

There is nothing more relaxing than a nice warm bath to help melt away your troubles.

I’ve been in love with bath bombs for quite some time. I remember the first time I walked into a LUSH store in the Mall of America. I was hooked from then on. Having a bath without a bath bomb is just not something I can do without.

I was excited to get to try out these bath bombs from Amazon. You can find more on their listing HERE

These come attractively packaged in a lovely box. They shipped really well and didn’t fall apart. Each bomb is individually shrink wrapped and then laid in a

One thing people seem confused on is the scent. While there is 3 different colors, there is only ONE scent in this package. It’s a nice clean scent called “surfs up”. It definitely reminds you of lovely clean beach-y smells. There are three different colors as I mentioned before: pink, yellow and green.

The different colors give your water a nice and lovely color which also helps me relax. They dissolve really well and give off quite a bit of fizz. The scent is absolutely perfect. Not over powering, but enough to really help you unwind.

This is a great set that would be a wonderful present to any bath lover!

Zen Factory Zen Garden

Since becoming and adult, I have been plagued by anxiety. And along with that, insomnia. I have tried may different remedies, including medications that I need to take just to fall asleep. Recently I have started incorporating yoga and meditation into my daily routines. It definitely helps me to clear my mind. Which I have found to be the root of most of my problems, I just can’t shut my mind off normally.

I was super excited to get to try out this Zen garden. I have been wanting one for a while now. I wanted to set up a Ā little meditation corner in my room, where I can dedicate clearing my mind each day. Along with candles and a comfortable floor pillow, this is Ā a great start to my corner.

You can find out more about the Zen Garden from Zen Factory from their Amazon listing HEREĀ 

The garden comes with the base, sand, rocks, rakes and a small incense pot. I found this very enjoyable to set up. First just dump the sand in the base. Then you can use the little rakes that come with to smooth out your sand. It reminds me a lot of raking bunkers on the golf course, and I had a lot of fun swirling designs into the sand. In the end, my ocd took over and I settled for uniform lines across my garden. Then you can place the rocks and pot wherever you would like. I placed my incense pot closer to the front edge of my garden, since it is on the middle shelf of a book case, I wanted the smoke to filter out better. The rocks I randomly placed on the board. I enjoy how they make little plops and indents in the sand.

I find when I have a particularly bad day, that the act of just smoothing out the sand helps to ease my mind a lot. It’s a great metaphor to be able to just “erase” what is in the sand and start new. I wish it was that easy with my mind. Just erase what is in there from the day and make the pattern you want.

I will continue to use this in my daily mediation practice!

Chef Essential’s Pizza Stone

I love pizza. Like seriously. I could eat pizza every day and not get tired of it. So I jumped at the chance to try out a pizza stone.

You can find more on this pizza stone on AmazonĀ HERE

First of all, this pizza stone is HUGE. 16 inches across! I was a little worried that it wouldn’t fit into my oven, but it does…barely. I love that I am able to cook large pizzas on this, or if I want it easily fits two small pan sized pizzas.

image

Following the instructions, I baked this at 500 degrees in my oven for 30 minutes. This helps to cure the stone so it doesn’t crack.

I haven’t had the time to back a home made pizza on it yet, but I have cooked several frozen pizzas and flatbread pizzas on it. It leaves the crust crispy and delicious. And it has another added bonus I didn’t even think of until I was actually cooking my pizza. For some reason I always have problems with the edges of my pizzas drooping on the rack, and then I have toppings that slide off the pizza into the bottom of my oven. It makes a huge mess. Well, mess no more! Since this stone is so large, I will never have to worry about toppings dropping off ever again!

I can’t wait to cook more things on this awesome stone!
