Pamper Yourself

A BIG thank you to Reni who is featuring me on her blog, in HER shoes, today! She's doing a series focused around other bloggers guest posting about inspiration. Please stop by and read About what inspires me. And be sure to say hello to Reni and check out all of her other cool posts. She's got a quality blog that you'll want to visit :)

Today is a triple threat kinda post all centered around R & R. I'm linking up with Christianna of The Girl With The Blue Bow for What The Hell Wednesday, Michelle of The Vintage Apple for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday - be sure to link up with these ladies. Plus, I'm bringing you a review of an awesome beauty company I'm pretty stoked about.


First thing's first - what the hell is with the time change and having to leave work in the dark? I mean, I haven't been tired (because I've been hibernating like a bear) but I do feel like my work days are extra long. Anyone else with me? It makes me want to have some extra "me" time. I think I'd enjoy it with the following...

Speaking of pampering yourself, a few months back I was contacted by Bath Bar and asked if I'd like to try out their products. Of course, I gladly accepted and was thrilled to receive sample size soaps and lotions in the Zen Milk, Pom Star, and Lazy Daze scents. All of which are magical! Pom Star, made of pomegranate, tea and amaretto, is my absolute favorite though. It's one of those scents that after you apply it, you can't help but repeatedly smell your skin.

Developed by Kristina Vogel, a Hollywood makeup artist with 18 years of experience, Bath Bar was created with the goal of paying your skin extra attention with quality, environmentally conscience products, AND the company is cruelty-free. Bonus! I can unwind under those conditions.If you are in the market for new products and like ordering online, give Bath Bar a try! The sample sizes are a great way to test the products and figure out your perfect scent. You can get both a body wash and balm for only $6.50. Or, create a customized fragrance! Yup, select up to three scents that will be combined to make your very own soak, scrub, perfume, or even men's product. Pretty awesome, right? I think these would make great Christmas gifts.

Be sure to check out the Bath Bar site and browse all of the goodies they have to offer!

I was just thinking about my need for a personal day of pampering. Honestly the time change has been the worst thing ever - I hate it!!

prettymeggy said...

this post just made me realised how i really need a little time for myself, just a little pamper is enough just like that massage, dinner date with my hubby or a spa :)

Shutterbug said...

i could use more pampering!

Christianna said...

Thanks for linking up once again! Can't wait to check your feature! And I totally agree that it is very weird to come home from work when it is dark out!

Josie said...

Is it really depressing that the greatest thing about this post for me is the burgers? Oh, gosh. Guess it's lunchtime.

Now you've got me wanting a massage and some wine by the fire. After the time change this week, I could really use it. The days are dragging on forever! I'm ready for the weekend.

I'm off to check out your guest post!

I hate leaving work in the dark too! I have a massage scheduled for Sunday and I can't wait!! :)

Claire Kiefer said...

Crazy how early it's getting dark! I went to bed earlier than ever last night, and I'm sure it's thanks to Daylight Savings. So silly that we still do Daylight Savings!

Also, I looooove bath stuff. I take a bath every single day. Will have to check that out!

The City Boy said...

I know, the first thing that comes to my mind when I reflect on this time change is "What the HELL is up with this TIME CHANGE!?" The person who created it did not have kids. I swear. Great pampering pins though :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

I love the Bath Bar product! The Butter Me Up lotion is amazing as is the Zen Milk body lotion. It smells soooo good!

Mommyblogger said...

It's not the mornings that are getting to me, it's the evenings. It seems like by 6:30 it's pitch black dark, I HATE that!!!!

Christina said...

Awesome post! I want to be in that bathtub right this second.
