I might be a little bit addicted to the LUSH store. I mean, it’s hard not to be when you walk-in and the smells hit you with a big dose of happiness. I love it so much! And so does my kiddo.

Homemade Gift Ideas

Making bath bombs is a fun activity for kids too! It’s a crafty way to spend the afternoon and it also produces something you can use the next time you get a little soaking time. Or make a batch and wrap them up to give to friends. They make great homemade gifts !¬†

The fun part with homemade bath bombs is that you get to custom make your own colors and scents. Add food coloring and scented oils to create any combination that suits your mood. I love using  lavender oil or eucalyptus with mine!
