A Little Indulgence on a Cold Day ...



Autumn my favourite season is in full swing! creating a colorful pallet everywhere you go. The days range from sunny and warm to somber and cool. As the season progresses the cold temps seem to gain speed, preparing us for the even colder days of winter.

 There is nothing more relaxing after a long day than getting in a tub to soak away the day's stress and as the temps begin to drop warm up your bones too!

A bath is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a little luxury. Here are some of my favourite bath time indulgences:


Laura Mercier - Almond Coconut Milk Honey bath and body butter. The delicious scent of almond milk and honey bath infuse the bath water, emitting a gentle fragrance, turning my bathroom into a relaxing and soothing luxurious oasis. After twenty minutes or so of submerging my body in this heavenly liquid, my body is left feeling refreshed, nourished and silky smooth.
The body butter is a super-rich moisturizer which absorbs quickly into the skin - Shea butter, llipe butter, grape seed oil and Jojoba Esters work to moisturize and hydrate the skin, while honey and aloe vera help to soothe.


When I'm enjoying a Himalayan salt bath Cire Trudon candles are perfect for infusing the air with a fragrant relaxing scent. Two of my favourite fragrances are Trianon regal & floral - a tribute to Marie Antoinette; galbanum, hyacinth, rose, white flowers & musk and Mademoiselle de la Valliere spicy floral - named for the lover of Louis the XIV; bergamot, orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine, ylang, musk & rockrose.

Cire Trudon candles are from the world's oldest candle maker. They began in 1643 and some of their clients include Louis XIV's Versailles Court, Napoleon Bonaparte's home, and they still supply the cathedral at Saint-Sulpice in Paris. Each Cire Trudon candles is made from pure vegetal material, the wicks are made from pure cotton.  No heavy metals or pesticides are involved in their manufacturing and they are entirely biodegradable. Candles are 9.5 oz, 270 g, and burn for 85 hours. 


A little soothing music is great to help unwind and calm the mind. If you don't already have your own playlist of soothing bathtime music visit Global -Journey Gifts where you can choose from 25 free downloads.

I like to stock up on white Egyptian cotton towels when ever there is a sale. To me white, plush towels just seem to give that luxurious spa feel - at home.

The final item is a plush white bathrobe to curl up in after your bath.


Would love to hear your tips for taking the cool autumn chill off and what you do to make bath-time a luxurious experience.

Hugs and Blessings,

    Oh, how heavenly that would feel, the first luxurious bath for this autumn... I still have to hold off till my incision is healed but than, I promise you I will indulge! That is indeed so inherent to autumn and soothing music, a fragrant candle and great bath products make it a perfect HOME SPA!
    You certainly do appreciate the feel and quality of Egyptian cotton towels. That's THE best quality cotton for bath and bedroom!
