Honestly, I love a nice warm bath with indulgences to make it feel like a spa at home. Today for my Five Faves with Cindy and Annie, I’m showing you some pretty bath inspiration and a gift guide for creating a spa at home for those on your lists such as a personalized spa robe, my favorite bath soap, and more. But first, listen to this music while you read the post :
1. Extraordinary Baths
I’ve been looking at bath inspiration as we are considering buying a vacation condo. It’s tough as prices are so steep across the country but it doesn’t hurt to look at fixer-uppers.
2. Affordable Vintage Rugs
Notice how the top two bathrooms have vintage rugs. These can be very costly. Did you read my post on My Favorite Vintage Rug Sources? These are affordable and are lots of sizes from which to choose.
3. Cheese Board Tips and Tricks
It’s really about what you have on hand. Did you know you can freeze crackers and nuts for when you want to pull them out for an impromptu party or snack? I also like to have honey in the comb (I get it at our local farmer’s market). It’s good on Brie and bleu cheese.
My friends, Laura and Debbie gave me the delicious cheeses from Blackberry Farm along with the petrified wood platter (heavy!) for my birthday. Thanks, you guys!
Also, with hard cheeses, you can crumble them a bit to make them easy to nibble.
4. LOVE These On Athletic Shoes
My sister-in-law and brother saw that I was admiring these On shoes on my friends during our recent “glamping” trip post. And they gave me a pair! Now I can see why everyone likes them…nice motivating bounce with stable soles and lightweight! Thanks, Nancy and Jimbo!
5. Gift Guide For The Spa-like Bathroom
Shop The Gift Guide
I have given this great quality bathrobe to family members. The Aesop body soap is a favorite of mine (and it’s on our son’s list). Love the Brown Sugar Scrub. After the candle is gone, the glass makes a cute vase. My sister swears by these cubes that you put in the shower to create heavenly scented steam.
Let’s see what Annie and Cindy’s Five Faves are this week:
