Fabulous Find Friday!

Life is hard work! Whether you're a stay-at-home mom, a full-time worker or both a mom and a full-time worker (God bless you!) Friday's are a wonderful thing! Friday nights come too slow and go by too fast. No matter how you spend your week, whether it's screaming toddlers, screaming bosses or screaming for help, it's time to relax and pamper yourself. One of my favorite methods of relaxation is a bubble bath. Sometimes I even turn out the lights and light candles. I channel my inner diva and pretend I'm Julia Roberts in pretty woman. I mean, I don't pretend I'm a hooker, but I pretend I'm in a huge tub and sing The Artist Formerly Known as Prince songs at the top of my lungs. You get my drift. I've tried a lot of bubble baths and I'm going to share some of my favorite products with you.

For a good bubble bath the temperature of the water is important, the bubble is important, and the smell is intoxicating. I can't help you with water temperature but the other 2 I have covered!

Lollia bubble bath is absolutely wonderful. It bubbles very well! The scent is refreshing, summery and sweet. It is mild, but it soaks into your skin leaving a faint and clean aroma. It is sold at Anthro, but I can't seem to find it online. The link above is where it can be found on Amazon. Of course my favorite scents are Relax, Believe and Breath.

Amazing Grace by Philosophy is another great one. This is a 3-in-1! It is Shampoo, bubble bath and shower gel. I only use it for bubble bath, but that's just because I'm cheap and I don't want to waste it as shampoo! At $30 a bottle I will use my Pert plus shampoo and use my Amazing Grace sparingly. :) This doesn't produce huge, amazing, lathering bubbles, but it produces a decent bubble. The goods are in the scent and the way it leaves your skin feeling soft. Paired with the body lotion this is a great summer scent and will stay on your skin for a good part of the day.

Dream Bath from Bath and Body Works is a great bubble bath. A little dab will do ya as the scent is very strong if you use too much. The good news is, it wears well and leaves a great smell on your skin. I prefer the "Sleep" scent which is a Vanilla Lavender.

**This is a change in subject from the bubble bath, but one of my other FAVORITE pampering products is the Satin Hands from Mary Kay. It is truly wonderful. For those of you doing a DIY Mani-pedi for the spring you have to try this stuff! The Satin hands will cure any dry skin issues and it leaves your skin SO soft. Place your order today and my dear friend Laura Moore will send your products immediately so you have dry skin no more!
