LUSH Bubble Bars

With the cold weather quickly approaching Michigan, the only way I can really get warm is soaking in a hot bath. I've recently fell in love with LUSH's Bubble Bars. Talk about a little going a long way. You literally just need to crumble off a corner of a bar under running water and the tub will bubble up. My sister-in-law Melissa loves to use them for bubble baths for her kids (and the kids love them too).

After tailgating in the cold and rain for 7 hours this past Saturday I was chilled to the bone. I prepared a bath with a LUSH Bubble Bar and could have soaked for hours. The smell of the almond bar I used filled my whole bathroom and bedroom. Make sure to have a soap dish or little baggie on hand to put the left over bar in.

Starting at $5.95 a pop, I suggest trying it out. I would guess you could get about 5-7 baths out of it, depending on how many bubbles you like to have and the size of your bathtub. They're a great size and price for stocking stuffers too :)

Giveaway Break - Pure Silk Shaving Cream

Don't pack away your skirts and dresses just yet! You can still wear them with tall boots and tights. Which means yes, you still have to shave your legs this winter!

Pure Silk makes shaving a breeze. Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream, from the makers of Barbasol, is made for women, packed with ingredients like aloe and vitamin E to keep our skin soft.

If you're like me, and apply self tanner year round, make sure to exfoliate and shave beforehand, for a smooth application. The moisturizing ingredients in Pure Silk will help keep your bronzed skin smooth!

Pure Silk creams come in six different scents, Plumeria, Citrus Zest, Peaches & Cream Sensitive Skin Formula, Raspberry Mist, Coconut & Oat Flour and Melon Splash. I've been using Peaches & Cream for Sensitive Skin and love it. I'm horrible at shaving and it's been helping to keep me nick free and it smells great!
