popping in to say "I'm still here!"

A lot of things going on in my life these days.  Most of it has to do with me scrambling to find employment.

And perfume - how does that fit in my life?  Well honestly, not much.  I did wear Lalique Flora Bella and Hermes Eau des Merveilles for two interviews I have had.

Also, two people recently asked me questions regarding perfume - one to ask "what did they do to Opium!?!?!" and another messaged my husband through Facebook to ask me about magazine fragrance inserts.

It looks like things won't calm down for a bit.  What I need are recommendations on an inexpensive bubble bath product.  Baths calm me down, and the cheap stuff purchased at drug stores usually smells awful.

Any suggestions?

  1. Good luck with the job hunt - you are smelling lovely, certainly, to these interviews!

    Regarding a bubble bath tip, it is difficult to suggest any brands as they might not be available where you are, but I would suggest picking up a bargain in T K Maxx, which might mean travelling some distance, admittedly? I routinely pick up a very high class of soap, shampoo, bubble bath etc from there. Oh, and scented candles to put round the bath. Brands like Abanha (spelling?) and Pecksniff, Bayliss & Harding and Savon de Marseille - and many more indeed.

    1. Hey Bonks! I did land a part-time seasonal position and I start tomorrow - but I'm still looking for something permanent and a bit more pay than a little over minimum wage. This will help a bit, though, so I'm glad for it.

      Oh good idea about TJ Maxx (It's TJ not TK here in the US) - I think that the place I'll be working at part-time is across the street from one!!

  2. Hope you'll get your dream job! And by that time, try Lush bath goodies - they all smell divine!

    1. Thank you so much, Lyubov! I hope I do too!

      The closest LUSH store is about 50 miles away :( though that may be a good thing, because I know if I venture in that store, I'll get in trouble! But if I am close by any time soon, I'm going to have to stop in.

  3. I'm joining others in wishes for your gainful employment.

    As to bath salts, I don't use them (I don't like my bath) but I bookmarked Victoria's recipe a while ago - maybe it'll work for you?

      And that recipe is awesome - I appreciate the link.

      Okay, time for a bath!

  4. Epsom salts with a few drops of your favorite essential oil. A little goes a long way. Buona Fortuna x

  5. I don't do bubble baths as I like to be able to see my body in the water - just want to make sure there's nothing lurking in there that will bite me, I kid you not ;) - but I do love bath salts and bath bombs. Lush Butterball used to be my go-to, but I find the fragrance too strong now. (FYI, lush.ca has reasonable shipping, it's likely the US store would as well.)

    However, I loved the moisturizing effect of the coconut oil in it, so instead I just put a little coconut oil in the water. I think I'm going to steal wildcraft diva's suggestion of EO's.

    1. Hello Dionne!! I'm just the opposite - I don't like seeing my body in the water! :S I'll check out the website - we'll see what they have. I may be on the side of town soon where the only Lush store in this area is...if I know what I'm looking for going in, I would get too overwhelmed.

      GREAT idea about adding coconut oil to the water - thank you! And wildcraft diva has a wonderful blog - you should check it out!

    1. Hello Natalie! I sure did get some good recommendations; my baths are so soothing these last few days. Thanks so much - I did start a part-time seasonal position, but still plugging away on finding something in my field. Have a wonderful weekend!
