Thursday is all about Baths, Bubbles, Brûlée and Bargains !!!

Hey Lovelies,

Well I had the most brilliant shopping trip today. You know those rare times when things you see that you think look lovely are available in your size, and when you try them on, actually look as nice as they do on the hanger? Yeah that!!! 

This doesn't happen as often as we would love, especially if you shop in Zara, where nothing looks like it does on the rail, but I am digressing now .............

So, I have so many lovely things to show you all, but as it was late night shopping and Jools is super tired I have to tease you until tomorrow where I will reveal them all I promise.

This made me smile a lot

For shopping today Jools wore this little cutie!

It's a Chanel Mini. As you can see below, it doesn't hold very much, but who cares when it's this freaking cute!

I am attempting to fit in half an hour of exercise every day... Yes! I know, I know, how long do we truly think I can keep it up, but I AM trying and it is amazing how hard it is if you haven't done it just for a few months. With this in mind, Baths are the most important thing in Jools life right now as I ache pretty much all over!

Ahhhh Baths..................

Is there anything better that you can do at home that makes you feel this great and relaxed? I mean, really?!! (The comments section is below, please feel free to let me know if you have other ideas!)

I am obsessed with baths and always have been. I know that showers are great for waking you up and feeling refreshed and invigorated, but it is just not the same at all. No a bath is like a spiritual ritual, you pop the music on, maybe light a candle if you have the luxury of time, and choose beautiful bath products. Boys just do not get it at all, and never will .............

So I have to share with you my favourite bath products, and the one Jools wore today.

Ladies, if you haven't been introduced to Laura Mercier, well you just haven't lived!!!!!!

Think of the most amazing smells: Creme Brûlée, Pistachio, Almond, Fig, Coconut (basically your dream cupcake!) and Laura Mercier make them. The water doesn't defuse the smell at all, you literally enter a little dream world for half an hour and breathe in a lot!

My favourite is the Creme Brûlée, it smells incredible, and comes with this brilliant honey dipper so that you can choose how much you want to use and run the honey stick under the tap. Its like nectar!

Each flavour comes in the Bath Honey, a Body Scrub, a gorgeous thick Body Creme and a candle, which if you just light for half an hour, leaves the room smelling like pudding all evening (honestly, its' truly amazing - AND calorie free). I could literally eat my own arms after bathing in it.

I have the Pistachio and Almond too, If you get the chance to try them, you won't regret it for a second. They are available from Space NK and larger department stores (some of the christmas gift-sets occasionally go on sale, but sadly never the Creme Brûlée one)

Dreaming of these bath products helps me through the half hour of torture ..............

I introduced my friend Clairey to them recently. Its like bath-crack, and she is totally addicted! I still wonder how something this good can be legal!!

Until tomorrow (when I promise I have some fab things to show you, and I will model them!)

Jools said...

ohh Clairey they sell the candles individually now babe, so they are the one item most likely to go on sale me thinks - we need to check it out ;)

Jools said...

Thanks N, yes its double strap so you can wear as a shoulder bag or across body. Black is holy grail just now ;) red & lavender & beige are latest ones released, but all in lambskin, not the new Caviar like mine x

It smells amazing isn't it - I slather my hands in the Creme Brulee handcream every time I go into John Lewis LOL.

Jools said...
