D.I.Y. Best Bath Ever

diy bath salts

In my opinion there’s nothing more relaxing than a long soak in the tub. Some how it’s as if the water dissolves all your stresses away. Anyway, if I bought a bath bomb for every tub soak I wouldn’t have a penny to my name. So I came up with a little d.i.y. bath soak.

-1 1/2 pounds of epsom salts

-1/2 cup coconut oil

You come out of the bath feeling like a hydrated goddess. Epsom salts are supposed to detoxify the skin, and if you haven’t heard the wonders of coconut oil, read up! It’s so amazing. Obviously, you’ll be a bit slippery, so be careful getting out of the tub. Other than that enjoy!

A Night Of Pampering At Atlanta Pampered Ladies’ “A Beautiful You” Expo

On Friday, February 21st, I attended Atlanta Pampered Ladies event located in in the very elegant Brawner Hall in Smyrna, Georgia entitled “A Beautiful You.” The expo was designed to give back to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation while providing the time for women to treat themselves to luxurious spa treatments, shop their heart away and receive complimentary food and refreshments from Edible Endeavors and Sparkling Ice!

Sparkling Ice is a zero calorie beverage with sparkling mountain spring water, vitamins, antioxidants and natural fruit juices! A great alternative to drinking soda. They had a variety of flavors for attendees to try such as Coconut Pineapple, Lemon Lime, Kiwi Strawberry, Orange Mango, Pomegranate Blueberry, Pink Grapefruit, Black Raspberry, Crisp Apple and Peach Nectarine. I absolutely LOVED the Kiwi Strawberry and gave my Mother the Orange Mango (which she adored 🙂 ).

Attendees also received a variety of services such as spa treatments, makeovers, hair styling, as well as beauty and fashion shopping from the following vendors: Treasures, Stella & Dot, AMRII, ROC HOUSE Women’s Fitness Spa, Mary Kay Cosmetics, My MICHE, Thirty-one, My Loveable Legs, Beau & Luxey, Pure Romance, Pink Zebra, It Works!American Laser Skincare, AVON, Aflac, Western & Southern Life, and PLASTIKOS Med Spa.

Skincare brands that caught my immediate attention: AMRII and Beau & Luxey. Both brands presented quality skincare products that were natural, smelled heavenly and felt WONDERFUL on the skin! I received product samples from both brands so a product review is on its way 😉

If you are into candles and in-scents like I am check out Pink Zebra. The scents were AMAZING! And the company promises a longer burning time than the average candle by approx. 30%.
