“If you hate paying full price, like I do, there are all sorts of fabulous online retailers that are stocked with incredible fabric options (some that even look identical to those sold at the expensive retailers we love so much). The only difference is they are a fraction of the price, because you need less than a yard of fabric to sew a 20-inch-square pillow cover”

How scented candles in the bathroom can enhance your bathing experience

My bathing experience will never be complete without that fresh aroma of flowers or the like. I know some of you also has that ritual before dip in the tub and relax. For many, an odorless or bad smelling bathroom could ruin the entire look and appeal of it. Even if you don’t have the best interior, once you got a clean and fresh smelling bathroom, bathing will be extra invigorating.

Ambient Light…

Bathrooms do tend to have fairly harsh lighting. This is necessary, since for shaving and putting on makeup you’ll want a clear, bright light that allows you to see exactly what you’re doing. However, that bright, and often fluorescent, lighting is not great for creating a calming atmosphere.

Scented candles, however, are perfect for making a soft, warm glow that’s just enough to see by, but isn’t harsh or strong. Light plays an important part in relaxation, since we’re biologically designed to have more energy and adrenalin in bright light conditions, such as day time, and then to calm down and relax as light decreases.

Rubber Shower Mats: The Bathtub Method

Rubber shower mats can be cleaned in multiple ways, but one of the most convenient methods is by using your bathtub:

  • Lift up your rubber shower mat so that it no longer adheres to the floor via the suction cups. Lay it at the bottom of the tub.
  • Then, fill your bathtub with warm water.
  • Put on gloves and add two cups of chlorine bleach to the bathwater.
  • Scrub your bathmat with a clean bristly brush.
  • When you have scrubbed the entire mat (top and bottom), drain the water from the tub, and give both the tub and the mat a good rinse.

5 Relaxing, Rejuvenating Bath Recipes – Perfect Alternatives to Bubbles

Are you bored with the same usual bubble bath? What do you think of milk and honey bath like Cleopatra’s? Or splurge a little bit with Champagne or Red wine bath? If you want to nourish your skin while lying down on your tub, here are some great ideas for you.

1. Milk and Honey – Bathe Like an Egyptian

You may have heard of Cleopatra. She ruled Egypt. She was beautiful. And she bathed in milk and honey.

As cliche as it may sound, bathing in milk and honey is a fantastic way to get soft, supple skin – all over your body. The lactic acid in milk is very exfoliating, and honey is softening, moisturizing, and all-around beautifying.

The key is to use full-fat milk (or powdered milk) and pure honey. Full-fat milk will not only exfoliate the skin, but it will also moisturize.

How to take a milk and honey bath: Pour 1-2 cups of milk (or 1/2 c. full-fat powdered milk) and 1/2 c. honey under running, warm water. Swish around to mix, and hop in. Close your eyes and imagine 5 beautiful servant men fanning you with palm leaves. Repeat as necessary.

For full effect, brush your skin lightly and in circular motions with a dry brush or a washcloth before getting in the bathtub.

2. Soak in Champagne or Red Wine

  1. High thread count sheets: Topping the list of best wedding gifts is a set of sheets with a 600 or higher thread count. It’s typically a good idea to ask for sheet sets in a neutral shade like gray so that they remain a classic staple in your linen closet. If you’re buying a gift for couple without a registry and want to purchase nice sheets, try white since it will match a wide variety of bedroom color schemes.
  2. Decorative shower curtain and liner: Shower curtains are like a giant piece of art for your bathroom and high on the list of most requested items on a wedding registry. If you’re purchasing a shower curtain as a gift, don’t forget about the liner and curtain hooks. These are little details that will make a difference when the wedded couple goes to hang up their new curtain. If you’re asking for a shower curtain, pick that out first and build the color scheme of your bathroom around it.
