current favourites | bath time treats (02)


If you read my blog regularly, you will probably be well aware that I'm an expert when it comes to relaxing and finding the best product for a great bath time. 

I took this travel sized Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle (£22) on holiday for when I took evening bubble baths, and I've now come to the conclusion that I won't ever travel without one again. The scent is so calming, and for someone who gets a little stressed when going to new places, it's absolutely perfect for me. 

I've raved about Soap & Glory's The Breakfast Scrub (£8) a million and one times now, but I couldn't not include it in this post as it's my ultimate bath time treat. For my extra special and lengthy baths I always go for a Lush Bubble Bar, Lush Milky Bath (£3.75) is my new favourite and smells good enough to eat, once ran under hot running water it gives mountains of soft bubbles.  

Korres Shower Gels (2 for £8) are a new discovery for me, I saw them on offer in Waitrose so picked up a bottle of the Fig version which I can't get enough of. It's so silky and luxurious, and best of all you only need to use the tiniest amount so a little goes a long way. Now that I'm back from holiday, my skin was left feeling dry and flaky, which is where Sai-Sei Body Scrub (£28) came to the rescue. It has a sea mineral scent so is the perfect combination of refreshing and uplifting, and the exfoliating beads have are tiny so buff away dead skin to leave baby soft skin which smells as if you've just left the spa.

jo malone sakura cherry blossom cologne


My love affair with Jo Malone Cologne continues.. and this time I've fallen for Sakura Cherry Blossom (let's just pretend those tiny tomatoes in the photo above are in fact cherries). If you're all about fresh and light daytime scents with a touch of a floral note, this one's for you. It's similar to Earl Grey and Cucumber in the way that it's such a bright and breezy scent that is perfect to wear on days when you're in need of a bit of uplifting. It's probably more suited towards spring time but who says you have to confine a certain perfume to just one season of the year. Plus, how lovely is the pink detailing on the bottle too?
